Post Prediction Party

Post by quasijem »

This one's experimental, but hopefully interesting!

No double posting. For each 'o'clock between the last post and your post, you get 1 point (like in every hour on the hour).

Once per page, you can predict how many days away the last post of the next page will be, in days, by saying "prediction: X days away". If you're correct, you score 10 points for each day! If you're 1 day off, you score 2 points per day, and otherwise you get no bonus.

For example, if at 1:40am on the 4th I say "prediction: 6 days away", then I get 60 points if the last post of the next page is between 1am on the 10th and 1am on the 11th! If it's not, I can get 12 points if it's between 1am on the 9th and 1am on the 12th.

(technical notes - if you double post on a page, you can't score the bonus for that page or the next page. when checking predictions, we ignore the minutes and just pay attention to the hours/days. if someone makes multiple predictions on a page, only the first one is counted.)

I'll have to think about my prediction.

I feel like score from predictions should be based on percent error rather than absolute error, because predicting an event that could be months away down to the day is going to be really hard.
