Giving away some Buddy Passes! (Competition Ended!)Follow

#1 Oct 22 2010 at 7:13 PM Rating: Good
The competition has ended! Thank you for your participation and the fun it gave me and others :-)

Hey there guys!


I've just realized that the deadline for creating a new account to get an extended trial period is in 2/3 days, and since I have 2 3 Registration/Buddy Passes that are unused, I was wondering if anyone has a buddy who'd like to play; or if you are keen on playing, this is an opportunity to do so, with a quote from the Forum Rules page (which I checked before posting this:)

Quote:
[This has been done] out of the goodness of my heart.


Obviously, this would be extremely unfair if the 1st two three people who saw this thread responded and got the keys, so I will make a little game for you all...since it is about 6:00PM PDT on the 22nd of October and the expiration date for the offer is 23:59PDT on the 25th, if you would like one of these keys:

YOU MUST GUESS A NUMBER THAT I HAVE CHOSEN, WHICH IS BETWEEN 1 AND 1000. YOU MAY HAVE ONLY ONE ATTEMPT - ANY DUPLICATE ATTEMPTS AFTER YOUR FIRST ONE WILL BE IGNORED. AND YES, I HAVE ALREADY DECIDED WHAT THAT NUMBER IS.

]New Rule (1:37am PDT 23/10/10)- IF ONLY ONE OR TWO PEOPLE GET THE RIGHT NUMBER, THE REMAINING PASSES WILL BE GIVEN TO THE FIRST PEOPLE WHO ARE CLOSEST WITH THEIR GUESS.

Get your guess in! Only 5 Hours to go!

(6:30pm PDT 24/10/10) Change of the rule - If only one of the passes is claimed by getting the right number, the people who are closest will be listed on the thread and will have to guess a number between 1-10. Same earlier rules apply, elimination mode - get close or die trying :-)

(8:00pm PDT 24/10/10)Consilium has kindly provided another buddy pass, so now there are three passes to give away! Props to you kind sir :-)

...by 12:00am PDT on the 25th of October (6PM in Australia on Monday.)

The FIRST two three people who guess the right number by that time will receive their codes via PM as soon as I have viewed and verified all entries. Should only 1 or 2 people guess the number correctly, the remaining code(s) will be given away in a much simpler fashion.

Just realized something...

New game rule:

If NO-ONE can guess the number, the people who are first closest to it will get the passes. This also applies if only one person or two people get the right number.

Because it was a good movie. I'll go with 300. ;)

I don't need the pass for myself, but I know who would love to have it and I already used my buddy pass. =(

Don't you also hafta stipulate without going over.What if the following scenario happens?

Example

The answer is 42 because as previously stated 42 is the answer to everything.

And for the other buddy pass you have 2 people guess 40 & 44 who do you give it to they are both 2 off?

I suppose I will need to change that, thanks for clarifying my mistake.

New Condition - If only one of the passes is claimed by getting the right number, the people who are closest will be listed on the thread and will have to guess a number between 1-10. Same earlier rules apply, elimination mode :-)

Since there are a few passes to give out, if only one person got it right, then the remaining people who got close will need to guess again, in a much easier number range :-)

Seeing as how close it is to 12:00am PDT, I would like to announce...

ONE PERSON GOT MY NUMBER RIGHT!

Congratulations to Zicash, who correctly guessed that the number was 529! I will send you a code through PM soon, please check your inbox.

That still leaves 2 passes! As far as I can see, the closest guesses came from TheMonstroso with a guess of 555, and Brikar, who had the next closest guess of 600!

These were the closest guesses and differences away from my number from the following:

GodlikeCasey - 451 - 78

Monstronso - 555 - 26

Sethern79 - 435 - 94

Briker - 600 - 71

Since the number of entries was relatively few, I have decided to scrap the 2nd Round and award the codes to TheMonstroso and Briker! Congratulations guys, please check your inbox for your code.

Please remember to enable your account before the 11:59pm PDT deadline to receive the extended trial period.

And a big thank you goes out to everyone who put in an entry, it was fun to see how close and what random numbers you could think of :-)

Edit - If an admin can lock this thread, that would be appreciated :p
