"ROME" will win, even though he hasnt logged in in over a month :P

QBRanger August 6 2007 11:16 AM EDT


Who do I want to win?

Shidoshi August 6 2007 12:21 PM EDT

.... which is where this contest falls down in a heap.

"Who wants to give Ranger the biggest cut of their winnings so that they win??"

[RX3]Cotillion August 6 2007 12:25 PM EDT

You'd actually think that Ranger would do something like that?

Shidoshi August 6 2007 12:29 PM EDT

'Twas speculation, with just a hint of sarcasm.

QBRanger August 6 2007 3:38 PM EDT

For obvious reason these people have no chance of winning.

Haha, wow, why did I say next year? :o

Thraklight Resonance August 6 2007 5:49 PM EDT

You were banking on a 10% rescale, perhaps?

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] August 6 2007 7:48 PM EDT

Give it to OB ranger.... Since he wasted so much money on the damnable NCB anyways and it now doing his great boasting contest to get rid of it.

Well congratulations are in order for Purple Cobra, unless Ranger pulls something funny. Someone should e-mail him and tell him to start playing CB again, since he just won 3M! =P

48Zach August 28 2007 1:31 PM EDT

In my opinion, if the user hasnt been active for over a month or so, why send them the cash if they aren't going to benefit from it? Give ie to the closest ACTIVE person.

Thats my 0.02

deifeln August 28 2007 5:43 PM EDT

I will most likely NOT give an inactive player 3M.

SNK3R August 28 2007 6:11 PM EDT

Deifeln's rules clearly state that "If nobody gets the exact date, the person who is closest without going over will win." Purple cobra (as of now) is inactive, but he is (currently) winning the contest, so he should win the money, if selected as winner.

Nowhere does the rule say "But if you're inactive, you won't win the money."

It's deifeln's contest, so he can do whatever he want, I guess, but I won't see eye-to-eye with him anymore. Tweaking the rules (months -- almost half a year) after making the contest is in extremely poor taste, no matter what the outcome.

Flamey August 28 2007 6:12 PM EDT

I don't think he was expecting anyone to be inactive, really.

SNK3R August 28 2007 6:15 PM EDT

Perhaps that was one of the hindsights of making such a contest almost half a year in advance? People stop playing this game constantly...somewhere in the back of his head he surely had thought something about the activity of a user when said time comes.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's a great contest idea.

8DEOTWP August 28 2007 6:16 PM EDT

What's the point of burying a dead person with his lottery winnings?

SNK3R August 28 2007 6:20 PM EDT

When someone wins the lottery (such as this CB contest), and suddenly dies after he wins the ticket, the lottery people don't say, "Oh, but we'll give the money to this other guy that is alive who got the closest numbers to the winner's ticket."

Or maybe they do?

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] August 28 2007 6:30 PM EDT

Gve it to the actual winner as they guessed right and then we get a great cash sink or send it to TourneyPrizes if you can't contact them in a period of time.
Giving it to another active person isn't respectful in quite a few peoples eyes especially with the terms of the contest and those who complain about it being done the right way deserve even less respect in my honest opinion.

deifeln August 28 2007 6:31 PM EDT

It wasn't really in the back of my mind that an inactive person might win. There is still time for noneed to win so I'm hoping for that so I don't have to feel obligated to send 3M to an inactive account. :o)

SNK3R August 28 2007 6:36 PM EDT

Just out of curiosity, how is noneed still a valid contestant for this contest?

Today's date is August 28th. His "contest date" was August 27th. Doesn't this mean that he's gone over the date, thus disqualifying him as a potential winner?

SNK3R August 28 2007 6:39 PM EDT

Apparently I don't understand these rules. I'm out of this thread. ;)

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] August 28 2007 6:42 PM EDT

By The Price Is Right Rule? "Closest without going over". So as long as it happens before the 30th, noneed wins because Purple Cobra guessed too high.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] August 28 2007 6:42 PM EDT

noneedforthese will win anyways...

deifeln August 28 2007 6:43 PM EDT

"If nobody gets the exact date, the person who is closest without going over will win"

If Ranger made 3M MPR today noneed would be the closeset without going over.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] August 28 2007 6:47 PM EDT

or tomorrow.

noneedforthese August 29 2007 2:52 AM EDT

Erm, I think there's no way he'll hit 3 mil before August 30th ;)

QBRanger August 29 2007 9:12 AM EDT

Will certainly not be today.

Likely sometime tomorrow night.

If that is, I fully train :)

QBOddBird August 29 2007 9:19 AM EDT

*shrugs* It's all in Ranger's hands now! He'll hit 3M tomorrow I bet, barring a random urge to test out forging for a week or some oddity like that. *chortles*

Grats Ranger... finally broke the 3 mil mark ^_~

SNK3R September 14 2007 1:07 PM EDT

Was there ever a winner to this (meaning, someone getting the money)? I see no transaction from deifeln that suggests so...
