SHOWDOWN POINTS CAP

I know the subject has been explained before, but I have forgotten: What is the reason behind the apparent "cap" of 214,748,364 showdown points?

You might be sorry to have asked, but here's a thread with explanations of the limit on wagers at that time (early 2007), as well as the limit on showdowns. The wager limit has since been changed to a round 1,000,000,000 points.

Thank you. That is the discussion I had referred to.

Which leads to another question: How does one go about finding a specific thread that way? You got the answer so quickly.

Diane:

Questions on wager or showdown limits come up once in a while and I've referred to
this thread in several of them. So I searched for "Larrybus" and looked for threads
in which I participated that looked like discussions of wager or showdown limits.

In this case, I found the link in the thread titled "A Cap On Wagers: Is This New?"

Of course, if you can't remember at least one of the participants, this won't work well. Luckily for me, I can still remember my ID.


For people unfamiliar with searching the BBS Chat forums:

On the "BBS Chat" page, there is a list of all the Chat forums followed by an "Advanced Search" feature. This search allows you to enter a Sploofus ID and returns two lists for that person: threads that the person started and threads that the person participated in, listed by date.

Thanks. As soon as I sent the last post, I realized that you had been one of the participants in the thread you referenced. But I never remember WHO said something in the BBS--but I might remember what the subject was. I'm hoping 2.0 will add a keyword search function which would be more useful to those of us who are memory-challenged.
Thanks again.
Diane

I agree. It seems more important to search by "what" than "who."
