    New Game

    Apparently thoughtful's still tedious. Argumentative still causes angst. Substantive content's still cloying. Dying and death are still off limits. Alphabetic Progressions are still mindless. Serious still suks. So, our Brand New Game for 2013 takes a different tack. No rules except for good taste (and expected compliance with site policy and posting standards). We'll make our own within thread rules as we go. Oh, by the way, thumbs down are worth $50.00 each; thumbs up are worth zero. End of January, 2013, we'll do a little accounting with Ponderable's help. Richest RHP Member will be awarded the prize of being able to tell any other poster to the thread not to post in any site forum for one full week during February. First post confirms your acceptance of the one rule and the risk/reward associated with this awesome prize. Russ & Chris also win. More posts mean more advertising revenue. Game on. You start!

    So just how did you mean that, coq?

    Note: no $50.00 thumb for you.

    Phlabs is going to be quite disappointed the game wasn't on when he got his 33 thumbs down!

    I keep forgetting about thumbs. Pretty sure that means I don't have pay for any.

    I tried clicking it twice. Apparently they are smart thumbs.

    Every thumb (up or down) is recorded by member nickname and stored in Red Hot Pawn Folder Cement, later to be indefinitely archived. How else would the software logic know to prevent double thumbing within any particular post. Reveal Hidden Content
    Eventually, Russ sends a copy to God.

    I have more pocket change than you have fake money from thumbs down. 😛 😉
