All the recent hullabaloo about “likes” gave me an idea for an “official” game for them; one with an actual winner and an actual prize, which might actually advance the conversation… and which simultaneously ‘bumps up’ deserving comments that have fallen just shy of earning a badge ‘over the hump.’
The rules are:
###Find comments that are just 1 ‘like’ shy of earning Nice, Good or Great Comment badges, and then like them to “tip them over.”
For every Nice bump, earn 10 points.
For every Good bump, earn 25 points.
For every Great bump, earn 50 points.
Link the comments that you have bumped here in this thread, and include a current tally of likes given at the end of each comment, in order for them to count towards your final total.
Even though this is my game, I wouldn’t recommend relying on my computational skills; as I’m often distracted because I’m at work, and therefore, prone to miscounting.
At the end of a specified amount of time, whomever has accumulated the most points gets an actual prize, maybe a personalized avatar designed especially for them.
Sound LIKE fun?
##Game lasts from 9/4 until 9/12/16, 8pm PST.
At that time, I’ll take a final tally, and declare a winner.
