  • vB3 Release Date Betting Pool!

    Well, not betting exactly. No money, just for fun.

    The name of the game is: Guess the day and time that vB 3 FINAL will be released and win! We're not talking beta/release candidates -- only the final deal. The winner will be chosen based on:

    1) How close he/she was to the actual release date/time
    2) How far back he/she made his guess

    Scoring system:
    Getting it right within the hour: 100 points
    Getting it right within 24 hours: 75 points
    Getting it right within 48 hours: 50 points
    Getting it right within 72 hours: 25 points

    Bonus points:
    Add one point for every partial day BEFORE THE FINAL RELEASE that you made your guess. Add two extra points for every partial day between April 24th and May 5th, if you submit your guess in that time! (Early guessers get rewarded!)

    After vB Final is released, I will tally up the scores and announce a winner. The prize? Fame! Fortune! Power! But mostly, just the thrill of it all.

    THE BETTING (GUESSING) IS CLOSED ONCE ANY OFFICIAL vB3-RELEASE-RELATED ANNOUNCEMENTS ARE MADE IN THE ANNOUNCEMENTS FORUM! This is to keep the game fair!

    Some rules:

    1) You can only post a guess once, so make it count!
    2) Post your guess in its own post, in bold or it won't count!
    3) If your guess-post gets edited, the time you submitted your guess gets bumped up to the time that you edited it. (per Firefly's reasonable suggestion )

    GUESS AWAY!

            Why not just take the edited time as the submission date? Seems more reasonable.

            Tomorrow.

                Hence rule #4. Without it, you can bet your buns John would win, considering he's the one making the announcements.

                  Do you really think I think it's gonna be tomorrow?

                  And John wouldn't necessarily win since he doesn't know the exact date himself.

                    No, Chen, I don't. As for John, he could call it today, and say a date that's outrageously late, then just delay the announcement in a timely fashion....
