Yip yip! New LPW, new rules. Please feel free to debate this, but I wanna try something different, whilst staying true to the spirit of the threads. Usual stuff: don't double-post in the last pages of the thread, be nice, tell me off if I'm being mean to newcomers! This thread's post count will work slightly differently. Between posts #9861 and #9900 (on pages 494 and 495), we'll hold a roll-call. If at least six (6) people answer up to 5 minutes after we pass page 495, Last Post will be #10,000. Failing that, we wait another 1000 posts - another roll-call is held on pages 544 and 545, and if that succeeds, Last Post is #11,000. This repeats up to five times. If all five roll-calls fail to get enough people, Last Post is set at #15,000, regardless of how many people show up on that day. Extra condition: If the thread has not reached #9000 as of May 1st, 2018, then the previous is all disregarded and Last Post is #10,000. (If it hasn't reached #8000, then Last Post is #9000, and so on.) I'd like to get feedback on if the numbers I'm using seem reasonable - should we only require five people, say? Should we start the roll-call earlier, or later? Make the registration window longer? What happens if we race past the roll-call? (My instinct would be to halt the race once it reached the beginning of the roll-call pages, but that'd be an unnatural shift in momentum.) I love you people. Happy posting!
