I want to make bets with all of you, whoever has the better story gets 25 points from everyone in the bet rated below them.

I won't participate because I will end the last in the contest and I will not recoverer my points. But I think is funny for the rest of you that can have a competitive fun.

Lol, looks like I picked the right contest to not be in charge of the points this time around.

This is not worded well enough for me to understand whats going on but I have negative points so I can really only gain from this.

Contest bets

Pretty sure it means that all the participants put 25 points in the pot and the participant with the highest rated story gets all the points. No word on the calculation of the scores, however.

Contest bets

I thought everyone enters the betting ring and then the top author gets 25 points from everyone and the 2nd top author gets 25 points from everyone below them, 3rd top author gets 25 points from below, etc.

That's how I read it, I guess Wildblue can clarify otherwise. Seems like you really really don't want to end up in the bottom half of this one.

Exactly why I can't participate in this or I will end in debt 1,000 points. The people who agree to a bet as unfair as that has to be or brave or stupid.

The absolute max that can be lost is 300. And that will almost certainly be taken from someone who doesn't turn in a game at all.

In fact the main thing that needs to be figured out here is what to do when there are inevitably multiple people on that list who don't enter at all. I guess I'll just stick them all at last place at the same time.

And of course no, I don't see an adult going up against multiple tweens and professional failures as requiring all that much bravery.

Contest bets

You should probably prepare for the result in which no one on that list turns in anything at all...

Well I bet all my points to the fact I will present to de contest my game.

What about a teen going up against multable adults?

Well, if you're really set on going down this rabbit hole, everyone who enters this bet and fails to submit a story gets banned and has to start over with a new account. (Don't forget that. 4.0 though.)

Contest bets

I will submit a story but I don't say anything about the 4, Having account I have never. reached a 4 in the long term even with a game of 90,000 words It is impossible to me get a 4. The 4 is for recovering the fee and It has nothing to do with present a game

You're not even in this competition. Personally I like bucky's suggestion, and while I think you could beat everyone that wildblue tagged, it is irrelevant because you aren't even betting in this! 

Contest bets

A 9,000 word story with some time spent editing would've done it easily.

But yes, it's sufficient to just say you're not interested and move on.

Contest bets

But if they're not going to enter, they should say that instead of just ignoring the thread.

Contest bets

Very well, I am not going to agree to this bet.

Contest bets

This by the way is not going to be the case, no one is getting banned for not turning something in. (Unless they're already twice SHAMED.) Just making that clear if anyone was scared to bet based on that, but it looks like there's not a lot of interest here. Just plain ol apathy and being afraid of a 14 year old girl and the couple of others who joined suppose. Totally understandable; that Ford and Serpent, they're a significant threat in any competition.

We will smash anyone who gets in our way. I look forward to reaping 75 points from this. Though I will say Wildblue might be a threat

I am not scared of them. I am scared of my low level of mastery.

Mara, the way you think is poisonous

Contest bets

Good pun. However, I really think to believe that you are great when you are not is the real poisonous behavior. I have to improve a lot before even thinking of getting ahead a single person.

Contest bets

I agree with you there, though you don’t have to think you are great. Though there is a difference between thinking you are great, and thinking you are okay. From what I’ve seen of your writing you are downplaying you abilities. You just need to see that for yourself, and your constant self loathing isn’t helping

 

E: Also I’m not saying that you should join. That is your choice. I’m just saying that you need to have more faith in your writing

Gutless are you that target people you are sure that will end worst than you and not the favorites. If you were so brave you were targeting absolute all the participants.

Yes, definitely only reply to the little newbie girl and not the popular and established person who actually said the thing she was agreeing with.

That was a really good one. Mizal, To my defence I didn't even look at the previous message author. I can add a similar one to Cricket if you want XD

No, you did good. I got my morning chuckle in with my morning coffee. Don't let these vagrants fool you. They're just trying to distract you from your story. From GLORY!
