Ninja'd: the game

Postby Pied typer » Thu Nov 03, 2016 10:56 pm UTC

There is an interval X that may be changed at my discretion. Earn points with posts at the right time. A post will gain a point if and only if it was X or more minutes after the previous post. For every minute after X passes, 1/X points are removed from the post that collects, until it reaches 1/X, twice X after the last post. So a post after 1.5X minutes would earn half a point for example. The idea is that every X minutes you have a bunch of people posting at the same time and finding out they were ninja'd. Current X is 20 1440.

Here's a nice, easy-to-parse record of changes to X:
Spoiler:
11-03-2016/23:56,20
11-23-2016/22:17,1440


Oh, and page toppers must include an image or the author loses 100 points.

So here's the first image:

• So each post gets 1 point, but you can also lose 100 points at a time?
• Define image. Do emoticons/smileys count? (Avatars? Images in signatures?)
• Do double posts matter?
• Do posts that don't get any time still block people?
• If I make a scoreboard for this, putting changes to X within the post where it changes would probably be easier
• I assume seconds don't matter?

Yes. Though images can be edited in.
Define image. Do emoticons/smileys count? (Avatars? Images in signatures?)

Only image attachments and embedded images in the post body count.
Do double posts matter?

Yes, double posts can block and score.
Do posts that don't get any time still block people?

Yes.
If I make a scoreboard for this, putting changes to X within the post where it changes would probably be easier

Define how I should mark up said changes. And remember to verify that it's me posting it :P
I assume seconds don't matter?

Just like all of the other threads :roll:

One other tweak suggested in person by The Snide Sniper: for every minute after X passes, 1/X points are removed from the post that collects, until it reaches 0, twice X after the last post. So a post after 1.5X minutes would earn half a point.

To change X (the spaces are necessary):
X = 20
Also, page 1's page topper doesn't have an image... you might want to change that before I add that feature.

You can probably expect an adjustment to X by the second page.

X = 1440

Aw. Only the great OP can change X. I still reccommend that value of X though.

As suggested by my brother:
X = 1440

I will also cap the point loss after 2X at 1/X, so that there is motivation to post after 2X.

I admit defeat, I can't parse that sentence properly, so I have no clue if I gain anything at all by posting. So here goes nothing...

Here to help once again. :D

You must wait at least X minutes before posting, in this case 24 hours at which point you gain 1 point. For every minute that passes by besides those 24 hours, you lose 1/X, in this case 1/1440 points. So posting 24 hours, 1 minute after the last post gains you 1439/1440 points, 24 hours 2 minutes gives you 1438/1440 points and so on, until in this case 2 days or more have passed, in which case you always gain 1/1440 points no matter how long after the last post you post, as Pied Typer changed the rules in his last post.

So wait at least 24 hours now, or no points for you!

I think I just got the smallest amount of points possible (until someone sets X to some even more ridiculously large number).
Still, it's points.

You did. And so did I.

And, for those of you in different time zones:
