how smart of an idea is this? note: it's in the format that I'm planning on posting it in unless you have objections
Hello there! My name is forty-two. I am the banker of the...
Game Summary Buy shares in topics, make money. Use money to buy more shares. Get rich (no actual money is gained).
Okay, so... You walked into this topic for the first time. The moment you did, you gained an inheritance of 2,000 CHUs (if anyone thinks of a better name, pm me. it's after midnight, this is the best thing coming to mind). Now, you can invest those CHUs into any topic you'd like (disclaimer: OTD and GD only). As long as this topic is gaining posts, you're gaining CHUs. Your amount gained per post is determined by what percent of the topic you own. Topics have a max of 25,000 CHUs to be invested into them. If you own all 10,000 CHUs of a topic, you gain 100% of the profit. What's the profit? 100 CHUs per post (might possibly be changed as the game progresses depending on post activity and interest level of this game). As a reference, if you bought the current Strange Gang Topic at the start, it'd be worth 83,400.
So for example... 1) Okay so I waltz into this topic. I decide to post a request to invest every one of my 2000 starting CHUs into a promising topic. I choose the Strange Gang Topic. NOTE: In order to invest, I must have a screenshot of the board's topic list page (more info in next section), and your post must contain an unedited current amount of posts. Right now, the Strange Gang Topic has 834 posts (Link) 2) I wait. Wednesday comes around. 3) Oh, what's this? Now the Strange Gang Topic has 835 posts. 4) forty-two updates the current CHU count (every Wednesday). 2000 invested / 10000 max = 20% gain. 20% of (100 CHU * 1 post) = 20 CHUs added to my total.
How-to: Screenshot 1. Press the button "PrtSc". It is next to the F-12 key. 2. Open Paint (Start > Programs > Accessories > Paint) 3. Select Edit > Paste 4. Save this image as a JPEG 5. Upload it to tinypic (preferred) or any other image hosting site.
A few other ground rules... 1) Minimum investment in a topic: 400 CHUs 2) Maximum amount of topics one can invest in at a time: 5 3) All investments must be in increments of 100 CHUs 4) Selling your invested CHUs in a topic costs you a flat rate 500 CHUs 5) Posting useless **** in invested topics gets you one warning. After that, you lose posts. If I am pushed to it, I will take further action involving the administrators and the banhammer.
