I just thought up of a new game that branches off this game's idea: http://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4755.0
But instead of having a huge jackpot at a post in the far future, what if we were to have a game that gave out rewards at a much lower increment.  This game will be entirely funded by generous donators!  All funds can be donated to me at this address: 1PkxYmxk3Tn3MEbxNndnPr6SEKjUGSKNro
You can keep a log of the donations here: http://blockexplorer.com/address/1PkxYmxk3Tn3MEbxNndnPr6SEKjUGSKNro
I will take a 5% of the jackpot for hosting the game.

I will personally keep an updated log on this post itself to make sure that people know where the funds are going.

Here are the rules:
1.  No Double Posting
2.  Posts must stick to the topic currently discussed.
3.  Every 50th poster will earn the accumulated jackpot minus my 5% deduction
4.  The winning poster MUST have their Bitcoin Address IN THEIR WINNING POST in order to get their winning (having the address in signature does not count).  In the event that the winning post does not have the Bitcoin address in the post, then the next post that follows the winning post will earn the jackpot.
5.  You do not need to donate to post and win (but you are heavily encouraged to donate Bitcoins to the jackpot).

An example of the game:  Person A donates 5BTC, Person B also donates 5BTC.  Person A,D,E,F all post until person A eventually gets the 50th post, and person D got the 51st post.  Person A forgot to put his address into his post because he was in such a rush, so the 9.5BTC jackpot go to the next person D.  This cycle of donations+posting continues until the 100th post and so on...

Again, this game runs entirely off donations, so in the event that no donations occur between now and the 50th post, the 50th poster gets nothing.  This game is primarily here to encourage people to sign up for these forums and to join and engage with the community.

The first topic that posters should respond to is a series of questions that will further structure the game.  First question: Should there be a limit for the jackpot?  If so, what should it be?  (For this game, anything donated past the upper limit will go towards the next jackpot, so there is an "emergency fund" set up for the next jackpot).  Second question:  Is 200 posts too much, not enough, or just right?  If any major consensus occurs with any of these questions then I will change the game rules.

Second question:  Is 200 posts too much, not enough, or just right?  If any major consensus occurs with any of these questions then I will change the game rules.

There's not a single thread that goes for 20 pages. And even long ones take even months to go that long.
And if it did most ppl participating would put the address in the post at the top in bold italics in a table under a picture of a hot celebrity to make sure you didn't miss it.

Better would be to select out of 25 posts the deepest quoted posts and the most quoted posts and distribute to both by some amount.

I'd drop it down to 50 posts; you'd have people pouring in to play the game, etc. And it'd be a lot of fun. Speed things up, right?

Yeah, I think 50 posts sound better than 200,

I'll change the game so a jackpot is given out every 50 posts.  On the other hand, having an apparent winner roughly 20 posts into the round makes the fight for "a winning post" a lot less random.

Does your post count as number one?

The post that says #50 will be the winner.  I'm thinking of changing the rules so that you MUST contribute at least .01 BTC in order to win the jackpot (so that there is at least an existent jackpot).  What do people think of this?  .01 BTC is not a lot.
