I want to wish you a Merry Christmas!

And then I want to figure out your rule.

I've tried a few things, but nothing obvious has jumped out at me.

(I feel like I'm overlooking something, but maybe I just need more time and samples.)

Based on what rgati is doing, he thinks that there might be a correlation between the frequency of certain letters and the tip. However, that would be too easy and it is probably more like the number of times letters or numbers that have a circle in them show up.

I don't think this is correct, but since I did an experiment to get me some data, I might as well try it anyway...

Are you tipping based on the number of lower-case w's?

The first actual guess, and it is incorrect. I am pretty sure at least one person actually knows it, maybe two, but for some reason won't take the guess. Ah well. Keep trying!

You are tipping in order to gain good karma for the next year.

And you are tipping a penny per line? (I don't think it's it, but you have to start somewhere)

Thanks! That was a lot of fun!

(and I needed most of the posts on this page to figure out what was and wasn't important...)

Are you tipping every post 0.07GG, regardless of content?

You are tipping the amount (in 0.01 increments) of the leftmost xGG supporter badge year. (you and I have (20)07 as the first year, hence 0.07 for all of my posts. The other 2 posters have (20)11 supporter badges, hence 0.11 for each of their posts.).
