I don't remember anything about the origin of this contest. Seems like there would be a lot more people to participate if a platinum membership was on the line.

It's the "Guess the number of members on Jan 1 2008" thingy.

I'm challenging the results. Apparently Surreyman has some inside information.

Me.

It was started in a chat message at the end of 2006, and the cutoff date for the guesses was January 1, 2007.

Good luck to those closest... still don't know if it's closest without going over, or just closest either way.

remember to bribe Justin to do a sweep of the names and addresses to remove cheaters, and also to eliminate those dead/non-moving accounts, and you might still win!

35,040 (Dec. 23) passing the 35,000 barrier in spite of the purges. Could leave Smoke smoking. Anybody know 3,600 neat folks who want to join?

How about closest without going over the actual retail value...or, in this case, the actual #. If that's the case and Smaug comes through with his hoards of Mets fans, I could be Platinum in just over a week. Join, Join, Join!!! I'm already deciding on my avatar.

Simon (sblv) just nosed out Smoke, with 35,238 nnow showing.

It could go down, more likely to go up!

Maurlin, your magic number is 35,940.

This is a nail-biter!

Jeanne- Thanks so much for the calculation ...for some reason it didn't occur to me to think of it that way...or to do it if I had. Now I have a magic # to look for.

Here is another contest thought. The top player right now is level 92, how about a contest for when the first person reaches level 100?

Now, I KNOW I made a guess before the cut-off last year, and it's not there.....I think it's a conspiracy.....

...Like I remember what I guessed anyway....oh well, good luck to whoever gets the closest count on them jelly beans...

Okay. I'll bite.

Taking Justin's enthusiastic "Yep!!" response to Berylm's question, "Are we going to do it again this year?", I guess 75,000 as of 12:00AM EST on 1st January, 2009.

If the conditions are the same as last year, then I got my guess in before 1st January 2008.

Now, off to the free bear room ...

Taz,
There were a lot more guesses than what is listed here. They only pulled out the names of the people who were closest at this time. The original post is titled 20,000 and counting.

Less than 24 hours...

But, in the case of the fovarable outcome, what would I do with three platinum memberships? Do they expire? Is it annual membership or semiannual?

In his 12/21/06 post, Justin indicated that one platinum would go to the winner, and two to other individuals of the user's choice. He didn't indicate the duration of the memberships (6 months? indefinite?), so I guess that would be for him to decide.

Simon...if 250 more folks don't sign up by midnight, I know that it would be very sportsman-like to give one of the Platimum prizes to the next closest scorer.

And don't be gettin' all up in a hurry about it if you win, is my advice. Took a couple weeks to get the prizes sorted out and awarded from the Philly convention.

Linda, I have already thought about it, seriously.

By the way, speaking about the conventions, is it going to be another one?

Is platinum membership worth two gold, i.e can it be sustituted for two gold?

It thought Justin's gift a bottles of single malt in Philly was quite generous. Apparently some people got two when others chose to not accept.
