      Maybe time wise, but the last three questions are kinda tricky, so it may not matter.

      Yes, we do, very-very much so. Big Grin

      Sorry Solstice, I went through and rechecked spelling and capitalization too, in case that counts.

      I doubt they are looking to be that particular, but it may not matter, as I'm not sure whether some of my answers are correct or not. However, given there are 27 possible combinations for the last three questions, I would have at least chosen something different for them, but thats me.

      If my last three answers are the same as yours, it is not from copying yours. Perhaps I should have come up with a different combination on purpose...

      Exactly! Assuming spelling is not being figured into the end result, then a different set of answers for the last three questions would have been in your favor, as there can be only one winner, and its for the first full set of correct answers. The bummer part is that you can only respond once.

      Better to be wrong and have a chance, than to be correct and still have no chance. Wink

      Quick addendum to mine if I'm permitted, and since nobody else has yet to respond again.
      I wanted my #12 response to be 42.

      What Yan is getting at is the reason we are still guessing is because all previous attempts were incorrect. So you are staying with answers which give you 0% chance of winning...

    OK, pseudo scientific method time:

    3. HouTex
    4. midget
    5. chinnam
    6. steve_05
    7. JackBauer
    8. Tarun
    I am assuming Tarun, who had some comments last month. Adheeth, though an early registrant, had none.


    9. phunkeey
    10. TheBest
    11. shawndiaz

    12. see below.

    13. 72
    A little investigative research tells me that both Mike and Yan are 36.

    14. Adding together all the deals from the December monthly contest, and adding 20% for those that weren't listed (the 80/20 principal)and dividing by 31 days leaves us with 62 daily deals. Can 80/20 be that far off? I think not and will go with
    A 67

    That leaves 12. 39/72/67 was the only combination of 13-72/14-67 with Tarun. That leaves 42 and 45. I will go with
    12. B 42

    Anyone want to try Tarun/45/72/67?

      It all depends on the word "active" Adheeth might not participate, but user name is not crossed out, hence inactive. Tarun is not the oldest but participated last month.

    I think we may need to see if we don't have a winner to night if we can cut this down a little.

    Maybe make a list of who has answered 1-11 right and let them get a shot at 12-14. That way we can cut down on repeated answers.

    Alright. Yan and I were talking, and we never thought it would go this many rounds. So this is the last official round. If there is no winner in this round, $50 will go to Yan's beer fund / birthday present. Smile

    So, I see I caused more confusion with my hints than help. So I'm going to try to be clear here. No one, so far has answered the last 3 questions correctly. And this is what we are looking for.

    Please only answer the last 3 questions to win. So only answer questions number #12, #13, and #14 for the final round.

    Good luck everyone!

      We would have accepted any of the mentioned answers (adheeth, Tarun or MrCheap) since we have not strictly defined "active". We hoped that by saying "last 3 questions are key" in our first tip we clarified this for everyone.

    wait.. CBB was guessed already. And CBC was guessed, too.

    I'd like to change my guess to:

    12. C
    13. A
    14. C

      I was too tired to look back at all the other answers in round 3, maybe it was 4, I don't even know anymore. If I have a duplicate, sorry, but this was the last one I wanted to try anyway.

      I know I did, but that was prior to changing my #8 answer to "adHeeth", so I'm assuming that response did not count at this point, as all the other responses had to be correct or the 12-14 responses would not matter. It could still theoretically be the correct answers, as I originally had #8 incorrect. (Keep in mind that I stopped seriously reading comments on this post since two days ago, so if that has been clarified further since then, then too bad for me.)

      From the very beginning, we considered either adheeth, Tarun or MrCheap to be a correct answer for #8 and only looked at #12, #13, and #14 (since you got all the rest questions pretty much nailed down).

      This contest is supposed to be fun. If we didn't make this assumption, you could probably be guessing for the next month thus defeating the purpose of this trivia Smile

      I guess that clarification has come too late for me then.

      I don't think I even care that much anymore. I would be glad to see anyone win at this point. Smile

    Alright I "think" I have it...

    12 C
    13 A
    14 C

    MikeG is 36

    http://www.myspace.com/mglozman I think is Mikes Old Myspace account showing he is 36.

    Yan is 37 (was 36)

    http://www.myspace.com/reedcat I'm 99% is Yans old Myspace account.

    By My tally the only combination of A for #13 not used is CAC.

    So fingers crossed!

      I'm hoping they allow my second submission, as they allowed busant20 to change their answer previously. I believe solstice changed their answer once, too.

      I would appreciate you not using my name as support to justify your having multiple answers up at the same time, or your inability to commit to an answer. My error was fixed well before any other voting occurred in the second round, and I was the first to post, so theres a difference.

      You are right on them both being 36. Yan forgot that he facebooked me months ago, that's how I knew it was his birthday and he has his year of birth listed.

      Yan, please do not reveal my secret identity or else the terrorists win. (That goes for Mike and Shawn too ;-D)

    I believe all combinations of A's and B's (no "C" answers) were taken after the first two days. So, there MUST be a "C" answer.

    Also, if both co-founders were the same age, then #13 can not be "C".

      1. Solstice
      2. YanBz and MikeG
      3. Houtex
      4. midget
      5. chinnam
      6. Steve05
      7. JackBauer
      8. adheeth [Oldest but not "active" in the heavy participatory sense, if speaking in the participatory sense, the answer would be Mr. Cheap.]
      9. phunkeey
      10. TheBest
      11. shawndiaz
      12. 39

      Yeah, the victory was so close. It was unfortunate for Solstice to correct his contest entry. Read the reply that immediately follows his comment

      Quick addendum to mine if I'm permitted, and since nobody else has yet to respond again. I wanted my #12 response to be 42.

      Right, Solstice posted the correction literally seconds after his comment so I didn't see why we should disqualify it. Just a bad luck I guess. Sad

      Honestly I don't think Solstice will care very much. However the 1st post which I considered part of the rules was

      "Each member will have one chance to answer the questions"

      So in my unimportant and unsolicited opinion I think he should of won four days ago.

      Sorry Red.

      Nope, don't care, but it does remind me to always go with what I think. Lesson learned.

      I only changed that #12 after seeing everybody else answer "42", I should have known better, and as usual I did, but I got sucked into a brief moment "group think". Big Grin

      However, I will say this, had answer #8 been better written, it would helped a lot. Next time let a teacher create the questions. Believe or not, there is a fine art to them. Wink

    Congrads Redsox. Now I see why Solstice didn't win, he asked for the 39 to be changed to 42.

    Indeed. That's the holidays and getting sucked into amazing deals on Steam. Tons of games were $5 and normally $20. They just had very strange expiration times so I was afraid to post them (12PM EST - 12PM EST -- 24 hours or 9am - 9am PST) I wonder if we can add times into the expiry. That would be interesting and helpful.

    Thanks Yan and Mike for a fun way to start the New Year. I hope this is a preview of this to come to our network. Fun contests for prizes other than gathering votes is a welcome addition.

    KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!
