H'okay. So, those listed:
Sorcha
Boss
Elara
Rogue
Nelrith
Sir Aileron
Kaijin
Katana

(I will add anyone else who PMs me by midnight Sept. 1st, their time. NO later.)

8 people. 10 posts a day. 80 a day. 2,400 in a month. (After midnight September 1st, this CAN NOT be altered.) Each post is worth one dollar.
We need $2,400.00 to fix that one broken lawnchair from the earthquake on the East Coast last week. People will suffer greatly if this is not repaired. For, where else would we over here have to sit as we post on the board?
Snippets from the "rules" of the experiment are:

"Now, the reason why this is a network marketing gig is because, for whatever reason, we need to have $2,100.00 by the end of the day on September 30th. (I will take timezone into consideration. And naturally, should I get more than 7 people, or we decide to change the number of posts per person per day, this magic number will change.) But making 2,100 posts in a month for one person is difficult, and at this point, damn near impossible. So, we all need to help each other make this money. (Network Marketing works out a little differently in most cases, but the point is that in NM, no one makes money unless we help everyone else involved make money as well. I'm just applying that notion to how we function here on this board.)

Now, here's why I'm counting on some people to not "make the day." The point I'm using the board to narrow in on, is the success of actually HELPING one another, opposed to playing dirty to climb to the proverbial top. So, 70 posts per day...shit, that's the goal, but Katana and Elara only made 5 of their's, because they were too busy fighting over Crosby's love of crying like a little bitch about everything rather than just playing the damn game...( HAHA!) So that means that there will only be 60 posts for the day. We're missing 10. Well, Sorcha just happens to still be here, and Nelrith, and the Boss. So between the three of them, they come up with the 10 that Katana and Elara didn't accomplish for the day. Because remember, if we don't make that goal, NONE of us get anything. (Again, I'll make up some reason for getting this "money" together.) Point is, we can do more than 10. I'm not saying ONLY do 10 posts in a day. Especially since, think about it, if everyone except for two people make their 10 posts, and people step in to make up for what someone else had trouble with, then that's more than 10 posts for the people who helped. This isn't a competition among each other to put people down for not making the goal or anything, either. This is people who want to work together to accomplish something, and since we all need one another, we want to help.

Now, does this mean I'm counting out any, say, new members that come along during the month of September? No. And I'm not discounting the people who post here once in a while. But if you are not listed in the new thread I'll make when we start this, then you're going to count for something else. Another factor of the experiment...but I can't tell anyone what I'm doing with that until the end. If everyone else knows, it could effect the outcome, so...yeah."
The full post can be found in the "Running an Experiment" thread on this page.

I also have another idea. In this thread, if those involved can post by midnight their time how many posts they made that day, then that would be great. I know I can keep track of it through active users and "new posts" but, if those volunteering can let me know here how many they made that day...well, that counts as one of the 10 posts. It's a win/win. It's a post for everyone (because I'll be attempting to update everyday too.) and I also don't have to take what could be copious amounts of time to count every post for the day, and who did what, and who needs to help if they didn't make 10.

If anyone has anything else to ask/say about this, even while it's going on, it still counts toward posts if you bring it to my attention here as well. This technically isn't the "exact number" part of my experiment, so I will happily allow things, that aren't spam of course, that make this easier for everyone legitimately count toward this experiment. I'm focusing on another aspect of NM, and will explain in full when this is over.

It's 12:35am my time. September I'll kick this off with my first of 10 posts for the entire day.



Edit: And can someone replace this as the sticky thread?

Also...10 posts are within a span of 24 hours. If this kicks off right, we're naturally going to have bouts where we prolly hit our minimum 10 one right after another. There will be more activity, thus more to talk about.

BUT...you still have 24 hours. Like now, I just completed two. I have work in the am, so I'm going to bed. I can do the other 8 whenever within the day. Same goes for everyone else. (Seems like it's a no-brainer, but I feel like I should say it just in case.)

**shrugs** If you're interested Bitmap, speak now or forever hold your peace.

Edit: 46 posts in the day...JUST over half...but...

A MUCH better start than I thought there would be, actually. Thanks! The day isn't over for most of the country, so I'm just adding what I see now because I'm about to pass the hell out. So I won't see the board again until everyone is at least a few hours into tomorrow.

Hahahaha. Well, yesterday we had 4 people reach 10. Today we have 3.

That's 70 bucks! Honestly, without giving away too much, I'm pleased with the way this is working, even on the second day. Honestly, the only reason why "money" is the "goal" is because ultimately this is for a business course, and it's got a financial aspect to the assignment.

All and any posts over 10 count, as well. I'm recording the specific results separately on my own. But generally speaking, this is very awesome. Thanks guys! <3

Guys...77 freaking posts yesterday...

3 under the goal...we are awesome.

I'm relying heavily upon XPW, and will record the results daily, but I'm thinking that I'll do only the incredibly specific updates once a week. Like, who had speicifically made 10, who made more, and thus helped make up for others not making 10. And who posted that was NOT in the initial list...cuz remember, everything counts...just several different angles.

I know we're tired and shit, because real life sucks...but I still SERIOUSLY appreciate this. But, I don't want anyone hating this, so there's no gun to anyone's head about this. Just want to keep reminding everyone. It's just a favor that I am extremely grateful for, and I hope it's making posting here more fun as well.

I'd sooner hold the gun to you, Nel, than my doggie, so....

Hahaha.

But yah. New threads. I've been running a bunch of topics through my mind, but that's a stop and go kinda thing. See, if there isn't much general activity, then new threads will just fall to the wayside. We have a few threads that...I'm not gonna lie, I'm pretty addcited to now. And not because of this "experiment"...well, sorta, because I'm posting here more, but still...like the answer one ask one...it's actually really fun. Rogue and Elara do most of it. But even though I don't comment on every little thing said there, I still read everything, and it's just...cool random facts, I guess we could call it.

Point is, new threads, while I think a few here and there should occur, they pretty much run along the lines of the amount of general activity. And I don't want topics falling away now, when at the end of the month, who knows, we could have more new members, more old members coming back, just generally more people seeing and talking about these things, so more threads will just naturally be a part of the board.

Edit: I'm not going to have internet access tomorrow. So...yeah...sorry guys. :p

Yeah, I've noticed that in general over the years. Whenever there's more people creating more topics or at least adding to the conversations, members get more motivated to post. It's exciting.

I have to agree.

Sorry for not getting to the 10 yesterday... I had a game that I went to and wasn't able to get on before midnight for the last few posts.
