Mexican Standoff Thread Necromancy

Post by somitomi »

Let's resurrect another one while I have the satanic ritual stuff out: in this one time is gained quadratically rather than linearly, that is, your score is the number of minutes since the last post squared. Otherwise normal necromancy rules apply.

Edit: renamed according to information from our Keeper of Scores.

Let's get exponentially large.

I would think a game titled "exponential thread necromancy" would have scores go up exponentially.

It's possible I mixed something up. I remembered a game where scores went up quadratically and connected it (perhaps erroneously) to the Thread Necromancy: Exponential edition preserved on a topiclist. The actual thread wasn't archived by the Wayback Machine sadly. Maybe chridd knows which way these threads were scored...

I think there was also an exponential one? There was some post thread with almost no posts and like 10^150 score in it iirc.

I think the quadratic one was the Mexican Standoff Edition.

*checks* Yes it was.

Exponential was floor(2[sup]# of days (unrounded)[/sup]), which I made a scorekeeper for but didn't link to on the list of scorekeepers because I couldn't get bignum stuff working right.

Honestly, the exponential version might as well be the same as the non-cumulative version.

Hmm. I'd really like to get into first place with this but I don't want anybody stealing it.
