When I was a kid, we had games where we had to guess the number of candy corns in a jar. The one with the closest guess without going over the number wins! It was the only game I ever won before, I got a huge basket of candy.

Let's play that, okay? Suppose that every EoFFer was put into a jar. Now instead of guessing the number of EoFF members, since that's easily obtainable, we'll do something else.

Guess how many EoFFers, on Halloween, will be age...

22!

There are no rules, except to not try and find this information out on the memberlist or harass one of the admins for a number. Noooo cheaaating! I think it'd be really hard to do without literally just counting member after member, but still, don't do it! Be honest!

You have until Halloween to guess. The winner might just get a treat (or a trick!)

All EoFFers or just active ones? And is it 22 on Halloween as in that's their birthday, or 22 on Halloween as in they will be 22 by the time Halloween comes around?

Oh, sorry, good point Quin.

EVERYONE who is a member of EoFF, active or not, that will be 22 on that date. Not just birthdays, but everyone. So I'd expect a large-ish number possibly (though I could be wrong, I don't know the number yet. :bigsmile:)

Groovy. That's what I was assuming, but I thought I'd check. I don't really know how many members we have here. All I know is that Rantzien is member 22222. And he's old. So we must be significantly higher than that. But most people that come here, I think, will be younger than 22.

So. 4787.

Ah, 3 is extremely too low. So, I assume Melissaur and I can change our guess?

Anyway, I'm changing my guess to 3,038

Yup, you guys are allowed to change since I didn't explain right! xD

195. There are far too many members without birthdays on their profiles. Hell there are far too many members period. This game will be tough.

Right now there are 21554 total members... I don't think a significant number of members are below age 15 or above age 27 (if not younger)... A significant number are probably not listed or listed to some joke number like 99... The average EoFFer was sixteen a few years ago, but probably not six years ago (could be, though, since I specifically remember it was Bleys who said that)....

My guess is 2743.

And I am having a really hard time not looking. xP

I'm hoping this game will be a sort of The Price is Right thing and everyone will be over but me and I will win even though I wasn't the closest.

OMG JESSWEE I SERIOUSLY ALMOST SAID 37 AND THEN I REALIZED WHAT A DICK MOVE THAT WOULD BE.

Anyway, I say 2,500.

Results will be posted tonight. Did you guess too HIGH? Too low? I guess you'll find out!

Make sure to get last minute guesses in.

You might get a treat!

Who won? Who won?! Let's see!

2058

That's the number! Many of you were close, but just barely went over. Oh no! Who was the closest without going over?

Congratulations... BATNET! You win!

Your prize? A special little .gif in your custom title. :bigsmile:

Seriously, going over doesn't really matter... All that really matters is who was closest period... >.< Rantz should have won.

Yeah, this isn't the Price is Right! xD

Rantz always wins in my heart!

Rantz
11-01-2009, 02:49 AM
I was only joking, sirs and madams! xD It was clearly stated in the rules that you weren't supposed to go over the number. VexNet won it fairly!

Shlup

Yeah, it says in the first post, babies. It's a standard rule.

But good job anyway, Rantz. I'm really surprised at how close I was myself.
