Does it have to be a lottery post? Or can it just be, you know ... a bit of spam?

By the way, this is actually a valid question ... so it really isn't spam, so to speak.

I think the Voices get to decide that. The rules say 'majority entries'. Which essentially means that we could spam this to a fourth page for some turns. Dunno if those turns would also be awarded by a pissed pair of Voices though. ;)

Still, to use Voice Stone's terminology, it gives us some 'leeway'. :)

"Leeway" in this case could also be construed as a "loophole".

The Voices don't have to provide us the turns. They do this out of the kindness of their own heart. This is an event, created by the staff, for the sole purpose of giving us, the players of this game, a reward for guessing a set of numbers right.

If we spam this thread, I would believe that it would reflect negatively upon the whole event. In fact, I am going to stop posting after this one. But I don't think we have that much leeway.

Voices, feel free to edit my posts out to make the count more accurate, I don't want to ruin anything for anyone.

Correct. I merely meant to say that the occasional post of someone reacting upon another's entry might be counted towards the three pages, as indeed Kaz's request for someone to post here. I'll wait for either Voice Dax or Voice Aeneas to give us the conclusive answer to that though.

I wouldn't count any of these posts toward page 3. However, since the last post on page 2 is Kaz's post, any post on this page that is a lottery entry will count as 3 pages.

Dax,

You can obviously take the 'majority' thing as you want, but when I introduced it as George, the word was chosen to allow leeway for a bit of spamming to help along the way.

Nagash's post starting page 3 was post 50, and was what I expected to see in response to my request for someone to post. Other than that, there were two other posts non-entry, that were made by me.

Thats 47 out of 50 posts actual entries. That's a lot less spam than was found in previous page 3 lottos. I'd personally call that majority.

Although, Nagash's suggestion of spamming up to page 4 to make 47/75 would be taking it a little too far... although the choice of wording you could actually allow it.

But in the end, It's Dax and Aeneas' call how 'majority' is interpreted.

I'm going to let Voice Aeneas decide if page 3 counts or not. I know how I said I'd go, but Aeneas is a nice guy and I'm sure I know how he'll decide, so that's why I'm leaving it up to him. :wink:

And since Kaz seems to be generous with regards to the spammers among you and therewith to all of you we shall award the three page bonus rather than the 40 post bonus. Show your gratitude and send Kaz a nice message will you? ;>

As for this week's winners:


Lesser prize (30 turns)
- - 1 1 : Grunt
- 9 1 - : _Nagash_
- 9 - 1 : Asoc



Runner-Up (40 turns or $25.000.000 cash)
8 9 1 - : Karhedron


Slider66 entered two sets of numbers so is disqualified. Ipatia's entry was made after 2 am today, so is void. They will count for the three page bonus though. The same goes for those who did post but did not enter (see list below).

Congratulations, all of you!
Turns can be claimed by PMing me with the event where you won the turns, the amount of turns, and the realm (and game) to award the turns to.

I've been lenient with your spamming up the thread to the third page this time but may not be next time. So don't take this for an open invitation to come and spam the lottery thread. You guys merely got lucky this time around! :>
