How well do you know the forum members? Try to guess who posted the following! I'll get the posts from Jinghao's script on http://originxt.com/node/18347 and keep a tally of points (the first person to correctly identify the quote gets 10 points minus the number of guesses prior.). You can't guess consecutively for the same quote. No cheating, otherwise it's not fun! stongue.gif After someone guesses correctly, I'll post another. ssmile.gif

Current quote that we are guessing:
QUOTE (only part of the post b/c it was long)
I believe that 'falling in love' is merely a prolonged phase. If you look at it from that way, you understand that love is merely a springboard to what happens later within your relationship. Once you fall out of the feelings, you have to look at the relationship from a mere 'how can we work through' things point of view. That's essentially what life becomes, a work in progress, and a constant transition between you and what you are doing.


Score
Singularity: 258
Heartless Krab: 160
Jinghao: 333
Uno: 20
Keese: 30

EDIT: If you know it's correct, feel free to post another one. ssmile.gif
EDIT: The points system was changed. (See above, so I'll multiply the current points by 10, yay!) Let me know if there are any problems.
EDIT: Rule change: You can't guess consecutively, but, otherwise, it's okay. turned.gif

QUOTE (1st)
It's been 7 months since someone got a top score in the arcade. Have we reached the ceiling where we can't score higher?

It could work, but wouldn't it be nice to encourage guessing so more people can play? Also, the game would speed up.  Especially if the random post is something really hard.  Also, does it sound fair if, if someone guesses incorrectly, then 2 people guess incorrectly, then the first person is allowed to guess again? Also, if no one gets it after like 6 tries, I'll post another quote.

In that case, if people correctly identify the quote, they get 10 minus the number of guesses prior. This encourages people to guess early if they are pretty confident of their answers.

OK, sure. That's fewer numbers to keep track of and rewards people who know it really well or get really lucky. ssmile.gif Let me know if anyone has any ideas against the rule change. ssmile.gif

Sorry, all wrong. Guess again.

Edit: I added the current quote to the very first post so it's easier to see. Sorry for the confusion.

How's this: Just to discourage completely uneducated guesses, how about we "charge" people 1 point per guess and give them 5 points for getting the right answer? (So if you think you have over a 25% chance of winning, go ahead)

Nope, sorry. This one is hard and could be almost anyone, so 2 more guesses and I'll change the quote. ^_^

I've narrowed it down to 3 people I think it could be.

Id? Or Shadowflare, whatever his name is now?

Hm, would it help if I make the script only pull quotes that are from people whose posts are > 100?

Nope!

Since this one seems to be difficult, I'll just reveal the answer... it was Papa_Smurf!

@Jinghao: If you'd like to, sure, but I can also filter through them. ^^
