Hi guys!
I am going to make a little question for you and win a text based rpg game (c++)
i made my own. At least this is what i can give freely!
All you need to answer is a simple question:

1+1=

Rules:
All participators have only 1 chance of posting the result
All have only 1 week to post the result since this thread started
The first person who answered correctly wins the prize
The price is given at the end of the week,
Edited posts will be taken out of consideration
If none finds out the result, the price wont be given
I will bump every day, for a right competition
Googling is allowed
Have fun!

Warning: Even if there is a winner, if he/she edits the post, the prize wont be given

My programming skills are flawless.

You never specified a number base.

1+1= depends.

One raindrop + One raindrop = One bigger raindrop
One man + One woman = 1, 2, 3, 4, and in some cases 24 or more kids
One matter + One antimatter = 0
One MRCL + One Frick = One lovely honeymoon.

Frick says thanks.

The answer could be varied. In simple math, 2.

Other possibilities:
1 Jr plus 1 cpu core = sad. 1 LOL cat + 1 caption = funny.

One matter + One antimatter = photons and energy.
Sorry, I couldn't help it.

"The first person who answered correctly wins the price"

There are many correct answers for 1+1 :lol:

Nice intention, but you've blown the whole competition by saying the first correct answer to a trivial question wins: the competition is over before its even started, with the first reply by Derek12. :shadedshu It makes all the other entries pointless.

If you want to know how to structure a competition, take a look at my MW3 competition for a good example.

It's a good idea to offer something more appealing than a simple text based adventure. Who plays those nowadays?

Finally, it's spelled "prize", not "price". This is basic stuff.

Yeah a bare 1+1 has many correct answers besides mine , he should indicate the context of that sum

because if not, then should say "the user who first replied to this thread will win the prize"

if you go by Boolean Operations then 1+1 = 1 (1 AND 1 = 1)

That would be binary. This would be my choice as an answer as well since this is a computer tech forum and all.

Too obvious to be true/correct, but here we go:
1+1=2
