Hey folks!

Welcome to week 2 of this rolling competition :)

As we had no winners last week, we have a rollover! The prizes this week are:

10 x each of the Goods of your age
5 x Large Forge Point Packages


All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is to post in this thread. Full rules can be found here.

Good luck everyone! This week's competition will close at 8pm on Sunday May 21st, so make sure to post before then to be in with a chance!

Wow, 50 FPs in packages now I REALLY care about whether I win!

I guess that means the rest of us are insane, we're doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. ;)

this forum doesn't seem to let us write invisibly anymore :(
where's byeordie when you need him for advice?

close, but you used to be able to type in a precise colour code to match the colour perfectly before they revamped the forum style

Only thing I could think of would be to post a comment, screenshot it, then use paint to copy the background color and write it again in paint with this color, then edit and upload that image file.

so I have to be within 5 mins of the random time... Does that mean this post has a 1/2016 chance of winning?
 

DeletedUser108047

Clearly failed comprehension... and now wondering whether I'll fail stats.... so this being my 3rd post means I have a 3/5040 chance? Surely more drivel like this and I'll improve my odds :)

That's right, post all the nonsense you can think of, adds to your chances and increases the silly :P

only 1440 mins in a day, and within 2 mins either side of the time - so i don't think the odds are as high as Dane makes them (i.e. better than he says) but no idea how to work them out myself

60(seconds)x60(minutes)x24(hours)x7(days)/120(seconds)

Then you get the odds for each post being the one chosen.
 

DeletedUser9168

why seconds, when it is to the nearest minute?
the day you posted doesn't matter either - last week a winner could have posted at 18:10 on monday, or 18:10 on friday, or....
so i think the odds are 4/1440 all multiplied by the number of unique guesses you have - but that doesn't take into account the fact that a spot-on guess would win instead of a guess 2 mins away.
