    So, did you save a pic ahead of time or do you have some sly method of snapping it up off Free-DC?


    This may sound odd coming from me, but I hope its nothing too bad, Bogi.

    So Bogi, what does come to mind with the word raffle?

    To everyone else, where do you see the MPAs going?

    No! It just happened to be the last update I did around midnight before going to bed. I was just lucky enough to have not clicked the refresh button before reading your post!:D

    Oo, thanks for the catch, I really appreciate it. I knew I was cutting it close, and I missed the update by 18 minutes. :laugh:

    So are you suggesting a folding raffle similar to the WCG;)?

    Not a bad idea though, let's get Buck's input on this:D

    Well, similar yes. But with the added addition of MPAs.

    What I was thinking for the MPAs was almost like a voucher. For every 5 MPAs you earn 1 extra name in the hat (numbers are to be determined, this is an example). The MPAs are the property of the folder/cruncher who earned them and as such, can be dealt with as the owner feels.

    For instance, in the raffle everyone gets their name in the hat (we'll figure out requirements / rules later). However those with MPAs show a dedicated contribution level by being in the top 10 on both teams. I could choose to use 20 MPAs to give myself 5 chances to win (4 extra slips of paper with my name + my initial slip of paper) or I could choose not to use them. I could hand them out to my friends, or perhaps I find some brand new person to the team who looks like he/she could use the extra chance for the prize. We'd stipulate no monetary exchange, though I doubt that'd happen.

    But yea, something along them lines. Its pretty rough and could use fleshing out but that was my idea for the MPAs. Something along those lines anyways. I'd kind of like to reward people who frequent the top 10 but don't earn MPAs with a similar system. I might have to retroactively award the 'top 10 vouchers' but that'd be minor.

    Anyways, what are your thoughts guys?

    Pie!

    [​IMG]

    Tonight's top story: a hobo has stolen 10th place pie tonight in what can only be described as a brazen show of balls. Here we see Homeless grabbing his first folding slice as he squeaks in just behind the now regular looking top 9.

    Also, holy crap Buck. That's a hell of alot of PPD output today. 124k? Damn.

    Here we see another long time member hits a big milestone, and becomes a F@H millionaire. Congrats to blackdemon on his first 1 million points. It's odd, blackdemon hasn't been active on the forums for a few months, and only has 6 posts total. Kinda neat seeing him have 1 million points in F@H.

    The same 5 as yesterday make a repeat appearance today, almost as if they were some how collaborating with each other to do this. I think these guys are rigging the MPAs. Especially that Bogi chap. Congrats to Buck to moving up to 8th in output yesterday. You show them crunchers how its done.

    Ah, we have identified blackdemon's alias. Many congrat's on your accomplishment Giggla and thanks for sticking in there for the long run.

    It appears to be leftover updates from the day before. I can assure you that I'm not pulling 124K PPD right now. Give me a few weeks and then we will talk;).

    Not a problem, I'll be sure to add you to the Current status thread.

    Buck, I'm going to hold you to it.

    Pie!

    [​IMG]

    The only thing different tonight is Lampmaster has moved back in for some pie. Also, I suppose I can say that I'll soon be moving back in for my pie. That and according to a few people in other threads, they're going to be up for pie soon themselves. We'll mess up the top 10 yet.

    Milestones

    Milestones Today
    IRA_FBi passes 25,000

    Milestones Yesterday

    2 featured stones tonight as IRA_FBi and mike047 earn some certificates. Mike adds another million to his pot with 3 million to TPU, 6 million overall, while IRA_FBi folds on his 4830 with dedication to bring him his 25k tonight. I can't do it personally, but give yourselves the football ass smack and a 'good hussle' for me. Congrats guys.

    Ok, they're conspiring and rigging this. Not too much to say tonight as a result, just looks like everyone is setting up tents like they expect to be here for awhile. Nothing against you guys, but I hope someone comes in and knocks you all out. Maybe Tom Selleck. Though I must say Buck, nice job moving up to 7th place in WCG.

    You're right, I did overlook you. I've got you down now in both the OP and the 29th pie post.


    Pie!

    [​IMG]

    Another day that mirrors the prior. The good side being we've got a good top 10 putting out pretty good numbers. The downside is I'm not getting any pie, and these guys are getting complacent. You can see it in their eyes. Bogi himself looks content to just sit on his duff all day long.

    Tonight we have another millionaire tossing another million on the pile. Congrats to Beertintedgoggles as he hits a number that only around 1475 other people in the world can claim to have reached. Here's to your 4 million man, good work. :toast:

    Yesterday was a bigger day than I realized with mx500torid grabbing an MPA for the first time as he surged onto the WCG top 10 list. Unfortunately mx500torid could not make the MPAs tonight to allow me to talk about him again. But no matter as I'm sure he can do it again, and I'm sure that he wants to. Aside from that, the same names keep hitting the lists. I'm waiting for paulieg to get up here and start smacking skulls together. I know he's got it in him.

    Pie!

    [​IMG]

    And we see a resurgance from Johnspack tonight, as he grabs 9th place pie. Coming days we need to have this pie mixed up a bit. We need to prepare ourselves with the oncoming wave of Canuck PPD. Not that I'm evil too, just them.

    Another member tonight adding a million to the heap. That's the kind of stuff we need to see, HWC is only 1 spot behind us. And Lampmaster himself shows no sign of slowing down as he blows past another milestone. By the looks of it you'll be hitting millions yourself pretty soon. Congrats Lampmaster, and congrats Oily on your 4 million. :toast:

    Pie!

    [​IMG]

    There's a new name tonight on the list as AthlonX2 steps up and grabs his first pie piece. Congrats dude, hope you get many more in the future. The rest is business as usual of course. Oh, and the guys at HWC said you suck and they will take your pie. At least I think they'd say that. It sounds like something they'd say you know?

    Bigruckus45 hits 25000 tonight, and also appears to be part of TPU's folding anonymous. Either that or the two names are different. I like the idea of a folding anonymous though, for various reasons that sound too stupid to mention so I won't. In other news, GilbertQC is well on his way to his very own FaH Millionaire status. Hope to see you up here soon.

    Congrats bigruckus45.

    Well mx500torid grabs his second MPA tonight. Do you crave more? Are you yearning for the pie-y goodness? You should be.

    And for everyone else in the list again, business as usual. At least you're all being consistent.

    Pie!

    [​IMG]

    I love this. Dhoshaw wastes little time in starting to brutalize and pillage his way to the TPU top ten. He grabs himself 8th place pie tonight and laughs at the trail of those he slaughtered and gored when he cleaved through our ranks. And then he casually remarks he's moved over another card to our team to help. Sure glad you showed up when you did. It's too bad you're temporary.

    Here we see the precursor to dho's rampage. In one day's time he blows past his first milestone on his way to pie tonight. Witnesses say he was cackling with glee, though this can't be confirmed. What's more is that when I went to Stanford's site, he'd already grabbed himself 22k, with another stats update in progress. I suspect I'll be posting a 25k milestone for him tomorrow. Good job man.

    [​IMG]


    Joining dho on the stage tonight is pepsi71ocean who passes 500000 himself. Haven't really seen him around lately, but his certificate will be waiting here for him when he stops in. Congrats dude.

    Same 6 guys grab MPAs again tonight, which is pretty damn impressive if you think about it. 6 guys are top 10 producers for 2 separate teams. I heard the power lines leading to Buck's house glow red hot and can be seen from orbit at night. I shudder to think about the other 5 guys. Keep up the impressive show of force guys.

    You guys caught me just in time; I was thinking about shutting down some GPU's because of the heat. My home computer room feels like a furnace is running; those 9800GX2's make great space heaters (which we really don't need in Florida in the summer). Have you heard a 9800GX2 with it's fan running at full bore? Imagine 2 of them just down the hall from your bedroom; the wife has been complaining about the noise. But, I will continue to fold at full speed to help out a good cause! :toast:

    Keep on folding, because of you I just ordered another 260, so my place in the Top10 PPD is safe.

    It was getting a bit too crowded at the bottom, so have to step up the game a bit ;)

    Never worry about the wife, tell her you get used to the noise... after a few months :laugh:
