A modest proposal -- no not by Jonathan Swift but maybe tongue in cheek....

Each Editor who writes a WP gets some bonus points -- amount to be determined by Justin. Lets say 100K
If nobody reports a spelling mstake the editor gets to keep it.
Otherwise the first person who reports each spelling mistake gets a share of that 100K. So given that the average appears to be two spelling mistakes per puzzle the first person to report each of them gets 50K each.
Who could object to this?

One possible problem is that in several cases mistakes are reported that don't exist. I've seen many posts where someone complains about an error that simply isn't there. Who has the final word?

I'm not sure it's fair for editors to get points for something that isn't available for the rest of the sploofus population to do. As it is now, we have no point perks.

I'm glad you're thinking of ways to help, though. Keep the gears moving!

I would also think that a 100K jump in points might be an indicator to point-watchers of who the editors are.

suzer; not so.
you get 100K points for blue and gold beanies/diamonds... plus does anyone watch scores that closely?

Some people watch bling that closely ...

Has someone been snooping in my bling pile. I've got them counted, in case someone gets any bright ideas

100K for the blue and gold thingees??? No fair. I haven't come across one since they started, and I play WP and WR every day. How do so many people get so many chances to win them (based on the bling on their home pages) and others of us never get a shot at them ever? I'm tired of seeing just the standard color pages when I do WPs and WRs!!! I'm now putting this on my list to rant about! I may even start a new topic about them (secretly hoping that my whining here will get me a chance at the Bling thingees).

Maurlin - I am in your same boat of never having seen the bling screen! I did not remember that one gets 100K with that prize. That seems like a LOT of points to me! When a WP only earns me 5250 on a GOOD day (10500, if you count the whole day).

Linda - wasn't there a thread a day or two ago
where it was explained, that each player gets
one chance out of every 1000 games to win bling
That is....every 1000 games per person....
not a total of 1000 games played by everyone

So....if you play every hour....16 hours a day
WRs and WMs....that equals 32 per day....
You could conceivably have a chance to win bling
almost once a month!!!!
And if you set your alarm and play every hour of
every day you'd have 3 chances every 8 weeks....

HOWEVER, you must be awake to answer the question win the blinking bling

I think the bling colors are totally random. Like Maurlin, I have never had the honor of seeing them, but I do know someone who got a golden nugget round her first week on Sploofus.

On this thread you are ENR-aged....
In the last post I read, you were OUTR-aged
and even ran away from home....
I expect you do both because you're
DAM-aged, MISMAN-aged, and DISPAR-aged

I got two chances( 90% each time) at a gold nugget in my first two months but have yet to see a blue screen.
