Who said WHAT? 1M prize! (in Contests)


QBOddBird April 10 2008 10:03 PM EDT

Earlier today and recently this afternoon, I sent out a great number of Chatmails to players offering them "the gift of fuzzy kitty."

Each player either responded to the chatmail, did not receive it by the time of this contest, or simply had not responded by the time of the contest.

Your job is to MATCH the response to the player! Fun? Maybe. ;'D

There are two columns of player responses. 10 players, sent this CM, are in each column. Your job is to choose a column, then attempt to match the player response to the player, or to state that this is one of the players who "DNR." or Did Not Respond.

You might say, "OB! One of the CMs was sent to me, so I have an unfair advantage! Can I still play?" Your answer is...*drumroll*...YES! You can! You simply are restricted to playing the column your name is NOT in.

Sounds fun? Here is the list of responses, to start off with, each one with a corresponding letter of the alphabet:


(a)[mail:] excuse me? While I never look a gift cat in the mouth, I like to know what's going on lol
(b)[mail:] I offer you the gift of maw of the hippo.
(c)[mail:] aww... I'm here now. I got stuck at work :(
(d)[mail:] :P
(e)[mail:] thx, did i miss something in chat?
(f)[mail:] So ... lint?
(g)[mail:] I have no idea what that is, but I am honored to receive any gift from you.
(h)[mail:] I'll take it! :D
(i)[mail:] Awh =D
(j)[mail:] Say what? Oh wait, let me give you the power of Yogi Bear. :P
(k)[mail:] I like fluzzy kitties... but I'm not allowed to have one :-(
(l)[mail:] Kitties! Where >__>.
(m)[mail:] Me Luv Pussycat!


And here are your two columns of responders/nonresponders!!


Column 1:
-----------------------------
{CB1}Slayer333
Soxjr
{cb1}smallpau1
TheHatchetman
QBSefton
AdminShade
GentlemanLoser
JohnnyWas
Hakai
G_Beee

Column 2:
----------------------------
Bast
Lamuness
WRECKEDSTACY
Vampire
IndependenZ
SundariZelia
ActionAction
Ranger
[CB1]Gun
Lochnivar



Simply cut the column of your choice, paste it, and then fill in which response's letter you think that player is associated with. If you do not think they sent a response, fill it in with 'DNR.'

Have fun!! :D The player with the most correct matches wins 750k, and the 2nd place will win 250k! There is NO 3rd place!

QBOddBird April 10 2008 10:24 PM EDT

Oops. Replace Hakai in the bottom column with 'WRECKSTACY'. Accidentally put Hakai's name there instead.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] April 10 2008 10:33 PM EDT

Ok, so if I got this completely wrong, remember... I've been gone for almost a year, hehe. I'm doing this straight from memory. Here goes nothing:


Bast K
Lamuness A
WRECKSTACY C
Vampire M
IndependenZ DNR
SundariZelia DNR
ActionAction DNR
Ranger F
[CB1]Gun B
Lochnivar D

^_^

Tyriel [123456789] April 10 2008 10:39 PM EDT

Bast (DNR)
Lamuness (K)
WRECKSTACY (DNR)
Vampire (M)
IndependenZ
SundariZelia (L)
ActionAction (J)
Ranger (D)
[CB1]Gun (E)
Lochnivar (DNR)

Everybody's going to be yelling at me, "Man, you really suck at this game. You are both an idiot and are terrible at guessing. Idiot. >.>"

I can see it now. :D Maybe I should spend more time in chat before trying these kinds of games. I looked through the list, and was thinking, "That one's th00p! And that one's novice!", but they're not in the list. :(

Tyriel [123456789] April 10 2008 10:40 PM EDT

I knew I missed one! Put an 'F' next to IndependenZ, as wrong as that may be. :P

Hint: With 20 total replies, and with 13 responded, all DNLs is an impossibility...:P

But you're guaranteed to get at least some right :)

BTW very sad that you did not send me one

j'bob April 10 2008 11:32 PM EDT

so, 7 DNL's. knowing ob (even just a lil) I'd say he probably split them up pretty evenly so if mitt gets lucky and picks the right bunch (50/50 chance) he could be sitting on at least 4 correct answers. and I'll say that there's a bit of a chance that 4 could win. ;/
course, I'm a nutter and what do i know.

ActionAction April 11 2008 12:35 AM EDT

I believe he picked the wrong one :P. Mostly because I know many of those in the second column are active quite a bit~

QBOddBird April 11 2008 12:42 AM EDT

j'bob, Mitt, Blarg - replace your guess on Hakai with WRECKEDSTACY, as per the 2nd post please :)

j'bob April 11 2008 12:46 AM EDT

Lol, let it be so. Just pretend on mine it says WreckedStacy. Cause I'm not even trying to think thru that again.

Interesting contest OB, I'll be curious to see how many people get a large number right.
( I suspect a few will be right up there, and I'm quite certain I'm not gonna be one of them)

I really ought not post at 2am, it makes me appear incoherent.

And now, crisis! One player managed to get 6 total points for first - congratulations, Mitt! - but there is no clear-cut 2nd place winner! I think I'm simply going to divide 250k between the three of you.

"so, 7 DNL's. knowing ob (even just a lil) I'd say he probably split them up pretty evenly so if mitt gets lucky and picks the right bunch (50/50 chance) he could be sitting on at least 4 correct answers. and I'll say that there's a bit of a chance that 4 could win. ;/

You knew correctly! And yet you were totally wrong at the same time! :D

I refuse to bother with the HTML to use the spell check tags. Stupid thing doesn't recognize my name. *grumble*

IndependenZ April 15 2008 7:05 AM EDT

So Lochnivar, you are allergic to cats? :P

ActionAction April 15 2008 9:22 AM EDT

Rawr! I totally got Lammy and Gun mixed up :(. The only two I had known for sure (Ranger and Wolfy) were in the bottom column with me.

So basically I won because I guessed the right DNRs x__o.
