Yes, there is a way to see complete history, it's all stored in the database. I just need to make a script that does that (will do).

As for payments, I just checked the payment log and every single payment has been successfully sent out so far... Maybe you could provide some additional info, what did the advertisement say, which receive address did you enter?

I don't know which receive address, because i have some in my wallet which aren't labeled... but it was approximately #1200 or so I think.

I think I paid 0.1 btc per bubble for about 10 of them.

It seems like you bought 10 bubble at 0.05 each, they have all bursted and a payment of 0.75 btc was sent to your bitcoin address..

Thanks Kozi you are right.

My mistake was accidentally using the same receiving address twice, so when I saw the 0.75 come in, I thought it was from a different source.

Spread the word so we can get our money faster. How can you lose with a ponzi jackpot? I want to be the last sucker who invests in this! This is an amazing idea. 2 things that looks like it'll kill it is spam and the government. Better watch for the Rif Raf!

Just an observation...

If the minimum spend is 0.01 until the jackpot reaches 100 btc, then theoretically it could take over 250,000 hours (28.5 years) from this point until the jackpot timer is reduced, if 0.01 is spent each 10 hours.

The way it is going now, it will go on for years.
It was fun the first two days but now it is getting boring.

Well, can't say I disagree with what you guys say..

Would anyone object if I raise the minimum spend to 0.10 btc and decrease the timer to 1 hour (or maybe 2-3 hours)?

That would:
1. Help push out the invested btc faster.
2. Increase the jackpot.
3. Make it fun again.

I think this would make it fair for those already in, since with a long timer and small spends allowed they're not getting bursted very quickly anyways.

Also, I added the requested feature to view bursted bubbles.

I wouldn't complain if you changed the rules in the middle of the game because it does kind of suck right now.  However I think the most fair way would be to guarantee 100% investment on all current bubbles if they don't get popped.

Yeah upping the min would be fine with me at this point. And I'd say drop the timer to more like 4 or 5 hours.... nothing too dramatic. 1 hour is too quick.

Oh, and thanks for showing the burst bubbles.

How about cutting the timer in halve and doubling the spend every day?

I would prefer the rules for the 2nd round to take effect on the current round instead of just setting the timer to 1 hour.

Nice game, id like to see a time stamp in each bubble, or maybe a calculator showing how oftent or how much is being spent.

I expected the time to go down one second per bit cent instead of resetting.  Now that I see how it works maybe one bitcent raises the timer by 1 minute.  Once the jackpot gets higher and you get mor traffic might want to change to 1sec per bitcent.  Would be nice to see about a jackpot a day.

There was a 4 or 5 hr window last night that I could have won the lottery if the timer was lower.  I think 4 hr time would be good.

On raising the cost of entry, allow small entries, that way newcomers who got something from the faucet and haven't found other ways to get btc can play.  Instead low plays only get the 150%, or maybe they only get a partial jackpot.

On buying multiple bubbles, i'd like to use a different link for each one.

Another thought was something like payout 10% when the first full (not just a new page created after but a full one) page of bubbles is created after yours, pay out 10% when yours moves up one full (from top of page to bottom of next doesn't count needs to move a full page) page pay out 20% when yours reaches page 1, then pay out the remaining 110%.  I think this would get people putting back into the game quicker.  Course my bitcould would be required in this case for bubbles under .1 or make a selector switch fo the user.

Set up the same thing..

Tried to get al my thoughts on one post, just remebered this one...

Place the most recent bubble, and the bubble that will pop next in the part of the page that has your top spender ad,and on every page.
Also maybe a random popped bubbble.
Or if that's too many (I think 3 or 4 is good though) banners at the top make a random rotator for topspend/nextpop/newest/popped.

This will help the bubble that's about to pop go out with a much louder (more clicthrough) pop.  Help the new guy get some quick exposure, and give some exosure to your past contributors.

I do find upto 100 of he same ad somewhat poinntless when looking through the pages.  Can't think of anything other than the suggestion in my previous post to allow the user to put a different ad in each bubble at the time of spend.  Also kindof time consuming since I posted about 10 different links.


Nice work on the site.

In 2 weeks this could get very cost prohibitive

How about rotating banners from advertisers at the top of the site? The more bubbles you buy, the better your odds that someone will see your banner.
Great idea, I have added rotating ads weighted on spent amount. The more you have spent in the bubble, the more likely your advertisement will appear. If you have not entered url and/or banner we will display a default advertisement (operation fabulous).

Operation fabulous links don't show up in empty bubbles.
Maybe also randomise empty bubble with content from topspender/next to pop/new/popped.

How is top spender calculated?
From btc address to pay, or from btc payment sent from addy, or from individual sale?

I like the idea of the timer being set to maybe 3-5 hours, and being increased by perhaps 2 minutes every time an ad is bought. I don't think you would need to up the spend price this way.

The game would start with say 3 hours on the clock.

Within probably a couple hours, 500 bets would be placed. The clock would go up to 16 hours. Over time, however, people would stop buying as quickly, and the clock would go down.

Perhaps when it reaches a certain low amount (say, 30 minutes?) you could make it so the timer does NOT go up anymore, and just keeps going down. This would especially keep it flowing at the end of the game, as everyone would be trying to put a bunch of money in at the last second. Perhaps pop a few bubbles just before the jackpot is claimed.

Thanks for all your ideas and suggestions. I will think more about those, but for now I have reduced the timer to 5 hour and set minimum to 0.10 btc. As time goes on I will probably reduce the timer even further.

You are correct, but it wasn't my intention to do that. Only displaying Operation fabulous in "top spender" section.

Also, I added timestamp to each bubble now.
