Maybe I posted this in a wrong subforum at first so I'll also post about my new site here.

Here is the site: https://apopheniabtc.com

You guess what some distorted pictures are in order to win their pot. To guess you you have to bet a fixed amount. A portion of this amount gets added to the pot if your guess is incorrect. Pictures also get less and less distorted as time passes by (even if no one bets on them). Also pictures have a starting pot, paid by the site. The game needs mostly skill and only a little luck. You should find the perfect time to bet. Too early and you will probably be wrong. Too late and someone else will solve the challenge first. Also in some cases multiple bets might be the way to go instead of waiting for the pic to clear.

The site is beta (read the ToS) so please report any bugs if you see any. I'm posting news mostly on Twitter @apopheniabtc.

Currently traffic and bets are quite low so, for now, most players earn more than they spend. Give it a try.

Oh and when you place a bet (even if you don't pay for it), you'll be given a referral link.

Have fun.

What does Need the Title mean?

For example if you can see a well known actor in that pic I do NOT want his name. I am asking about the title of the movie that this is taken from.
This is not the only case that the hint will ask for a title. Maybe I need a game title. Maybe it's a song video clip. I need the title of the work, not the person depicted, not the objects depicted etc.

Hints are usually there to avoid having users trying to find something that I am not asking for. For example I might be showing a person wearing a specific type of hat. The hint could be "need the name of the item" or "what is he wearing" (if I need the type of the hat) or "need the name" (if I need the persons name)

(The explanation that I gave is generic. They should not be considered hints for any of the pictures that are right now on Apophenia.)

Are you the poor guy that was stuck betting Venice related answers to the hippo picture? I really felt bad about that guy. It was apophenia (wikipedia article) at it's best.

@Stunna and haitispaceagency thanks for the kind words. :-)

@haitispaceagency no it's not from fear and loathing in las vegas. BTW you can see wrong answers by clicking "wrong answers" on the bottom right corner of the dialog that opens if you click on the picture's thumbnail.

@haitispaceagency you mean the one that someone answered "simpsons"? BTW you can copy image URLs here on the forum like I did above. Just use the tag this way:

Code:

This one is almost clear now. In 18 hours it will expire in which case I'll have to move the accrued bets to another picture's pot.

New one. I also added a little note on the bottom right corner of each pic since they were getting quite some hotlink hits and I guess it would be nice to guide people to the site. I hope it's subtle enough. :-)

Whoever solved the "french kiss" picture... Well done. I am amazed that someone solved it this early...

The beard was the inspiration. Wink

Thank you. Great game.
