Let's rock this contest!!

  1. Make a comment and add a number in order of the comment's appearance.
  2. Wait for at least two valid comments before making a second comment.

There will be five winners:

comment #11 wins -> 10 POB delegation
comment #21 wins -> 20 POB delegation
comment #31 wins -> 30 POB delegation
comment #41 wins -> 40 POB delegation
comment #51 wins -> 50 POB delegation
The game ends at comment #51
delegations are good for one year

What is a valid comment?

  • A valid comment is a comment added to the main post. Comments on comments are welcome, but are not counted as valid or given a number.
  • A valid comment has some number included in the body of the comment. Even if that number is not the correct number.
  • A valid comment is not an automated or notorious spam comment.
  • A second comment is not valid unless two valid comments from other users come first.
  • A comment from one user operating alternating accounts is not valid.

How to check numbers:

  • Make sure you count only the valid comments on the main post. Write a number on your comment.

  • Wait for at least two more valid comments to pass and then you can make another comment on the main post.

  • Do your best to number your comment. I will not tell you if your number is right or wrong until the contest is over. Some people might miscount. That doesn't make their comment invalid. It's up to you to do your best.

  • I will check the numbers when the contest gets to #51. Then you will find your prizes. Some will win monster giphys to help them with their math. Others will win POB delegations.

This is going to be fun @malopie...

Right is not easy to count unless someone is familiar with the rules.

Thanks for playing.

This time the community will have to earn the prize with their brains...

I will only deliver the prize.

Does POB have an active discord? I feel like I should get more involved there.

Start by looking through the trending posts on www.proofofbrain.io

You will find most of what you need to know there. I don't use the discord much but I have found a lot of active users here on proof of brain.

Comment #21?

No, I think I am #20. (@finguru's #9 is not valid, b/c he also posted #8).

Had fun with this contest the last time. I see some rules clarifications were inspired by the previous round.

Hahaha!!

Welcome back. I figured you might want something like this to start your weekend. Notice there was a new rule added that posts need a number to be considered valid. This one gets tricky.

Anyway you chose a great place to comment @trostparadox.pob

Enjoy the show^^

If what @trostparadox.pob bring up is correct (which I believe it is since @finguru commented twice in a row which makes #9 invalid) then I am comment #22. Good luck everyone!

Let's spice this game up and add some intrigue.

For instance, when a comment is left without a #, does it count if ... the number is added later, via an edit?

If so, this is comment #25 perhaps?

If not, then this comment doesn't count.

But what if one of the previous comments without a # gets edited just before the contest ends? Does that shift the winning comment by one?

Hmmmm.....

Or maybe, as long as the # was added to the original comment before the next numbered comment appeared, then it counts ...

Could take some real sleuthing 🔎 👁 deep into the timestamps of all the comments and their edits to figure this one out ... 👀 💼

It's a philosophical question:

When does a comment become a comment?

Surely it is a comment when it is conceived in the mind, but then no one can record that time table accurately.
The best we have to go with is the written comment and when it was published through the blockchain.
Since I am checking the comment at #51 then I will double check the time each comment was completed regardless of when that comment was conceived. That means any edits should be considered entered at the time of the most recent edit.

Ah, but then I could flip-flop my comment # with someone else's, by waiting until they comment after me, then editing my comment to be after theirs.

What a tangled web we weave ...

I made a little amendment that will work even though there is still a tiny loophole. I will check the comments at one time when I see 51 valid comments. I will record the time the comments are checked.

You noticed the little loophole again @trostparadox. So did I.

It's the one rule I didn't specify.

Does the comment time start from the post time or the edit time?

I really didn't specify. I had not foreseen this at the entry of the rules so I am just waiting to respond until #51. This keeps people on their toes and always uncertain.

Thanks for noticing the loophole again !LUV

I believe this is Comment #27! It seems 26 went missing but it was merely misidentified? Rules state a comment counts if it has a number in it... even if the number turns out to be inaccurate it should still be valid. There were more than 2 comments since my last comment so we are golden!

Hahahah no worries. I was just about to check your discord post for the POB WOTW entry to comment. I will get to that now. I actually realized I misunderstood the word. I thought of discord as the app instead of the actual meaning of it which is disagreement 🥲

Ammendment:

A valid comment is a comment that has not been edited.

Does that mean any edited comment is invalid?

Or does it mean that edits don't count?

If it's the former, then once again, I can game the game by making an early comment that is valid, then invalidating it at the just the right time, so as to adjust all the successive comments by 1.

I assume you meant the latter -- i.e. edits don't count.

I am having a hard time to see the difference. I am not counting any edited comments even if that does screw up the count. When I count everything is paused. It is too late to make an edit then. SO although it may be possible to bend that rule. I think it is difficult. You can play with it more next time. You did a great job messing up the count. I thought it was funny. I made a mistake I won't make next time. I gave the numbers out when I saw 51. There weren't 51 comments yet. Next time I will not publish the answers until I see all the winners. I have to record it on paper first before numbering them on the block chain.

It would be hard to game this particular rule to win #51, but pretty easy to scheme to win #41.

I just have to be #42 and have posted at least one comment prior to #41, then make sure that I edit one of my prior comments just before the game is finalized (to invalidate it, moving all the successive counts up by one). That moves my #42 comment into the #41 slot.

That sounds like a good plan. A few weeks later I will try a round 4 and you can play with the rules. I'd like to see you try it then.^^

Comment #41?

Based on the amendment, I think this one is actually #40, because my #25 did not have a # in its original form (intentionally, btw, just to make things interesting).

But were there any other 'edited comments' that will drop out once all the dust settles?
