I'm bored and have too much geekgold. So, I've decided to create a little game to test the waters and see if people think this is interesting or not. The game is: Why am I tipping your post? Try to figure out what my reasoning is behind the tipping of your posts and you'll win 5 geekgold. The first one will be fairly easy, and then if I get much of a response, I'll try some others.

What you want to do is either post just a random comment, or post a guess, and I will tip your post based on whatever arbitrary logic I've ascribed to this game. I will also tell you how much I would tip my first post, as a jumping off point. So. If I was tipping this post, I would give it 0.10 geekgold. (note - I will thumb your post if I don't tip it, so you know I've acknowledged it)

Any takers?

RULES:
1: You can not make two posts in a row (including guesses), unless it is a new day since your last post.
2: No limit to posts made in a day otherwise.
3: I will tip the amount based on my rule, but if a post earns no tip then I will thumb it to acknowledge I've seen it. (I'll probably thumb every post but this is just so you know if you check).

I'll let you get away with this one THIS time, but for the future, I'm not accepting duplicate posts with slightly changed words like this. I'll comment on this if necessary, but...

Additionally - anything in quotes will NOT be considered when I calculate tipping totals.

Sorry. It was the quickest way to eliminate some possibilities.

Perhaps this post will be 0.03?

So, you're tipping up to 5.00 geek gold based on the decimal number included in the post? (Since your initial post also included a mention of 5 GG, but you didn't tip yourself that amount.)

Or are you only tipping amount mentioned between 0.01 and 0.99?

This reminds me of Zendo, but using post content instead of pyramids (or emoticon arrangements, when run in the BGG Zendo forum). I like it.

No, if you guess WHY I'm tipping you get 5 GG. Other than that, there's no determination what I'll tip other than knowing the secret. The posting koan, if you will.

Edit: I didn't realize you could tip your own posts. It never even occurred to me I would ever have a reason to do that. SO I might start doing that.

Bonus edit: You can't tip your own posts.

I think this post would be worth .01 gold if I wrote it in the style of a fan-fiction writer writing a slash Harry Potter/Twilight story or 1 gold if I wrote it at the level of Tolkein. In my case, it is worth .10 gold.

You're tipping me because I shared awesome cookie recipes, and you made some, and they were good.

I think you're just a sock puppet for GROGnads, so he can practice posting with something a little less... colorful. Just as confusing, though.

I don't "Like" the imp-lications of your post - could you "B" corn-fusing me with persons elsewise? whistle

(was that convincing enough? I can't tell, but I can never pass up an opportunity to play around with this.)

Such a fun diversion. I'll be back later this evening after wrapping presents and putting little ones to bed to see if I've received 0.02 geekgold or not.

So I was wrong teh last two times but will try again. It may be related to the phases of the moon but I doubt that. Maybe it has something to do with the number of capital letters in the message.
