/me thinks that bhz is trying to hide the fact that he didn't do well enough on the "Postbox Or Cheese" quiz to be entitled to impersonate.

Square 5.

Wow, nice. 50% added to your score if you win.

Daik picked button 1...

Ouch.

Well, Daik's out of this thing and crashes to the tune of £40,000 multiplied by 6 which is £240,000. Bye bye!!




bhz picked 23.

Erm... if you win this round your winnings will be taxed by ... something (I can't remember what the percentage is and can't be bothered to look it up). Heh heh.

(WOOT 2,210,179 ON TETRIS)

Alright.

It's been a good one-and-three-quarter years. Jackpots have been won (and lost), there's been blood, sweat and tears, and enough money here to last most people a lifetime (while others will have to spend the rest of their lives fleeing debt collectors). ... Ok, not really. But you get my point.

But really, this thing doesn't have enough players or community enthusiasm to make it worthwhile continuing for the time being. And since the community's general loss of enthusiasm is rubbing off on me too, and I've got a ridiculously busy few weeks ahead at least (not helped in part to a certain highscorer who's been eating all my NReality 0ths while I've not had enough time to retake, but I digress), it's time to call it a day and kill off this thread. Perhaps it might rise again in future, just when people suddenly feel the urge to win a few more million quid just for kicks, I might reopen the thread. But not right now.

Thanks to everybody who's been involved and given this thread a decent run, all the way to a remarkable 10,000 views, making it the 5th most viewed forum thread, after *0, 1, 2, 3, 4 (but we're really close to #4 now). Special thanks to 29403 for bringing RTaB over to the metanet forums (which if I remember rightly was what got me actively posting here in the first place), and also for being a really incompetent host. (No offence. :P) And for Pikman for co-hosting and introducing me to a certain image-hosting website that doesn't work... Ok, I'm rambling again.

So, everyone, enjoy your non-existent millions (or negative cash, as the case may be in some cases). 29403, un-sticky the thread please. (edit: Nah, leave it stickied. We could do with a constant reminder of how awesome this thread was when it was active.)

WOOT 500TH POST! Thanks to whoever decided post count should accumulate here again.
