3. How is it delaying delivery? I simply ask the most generous cognoscenti to ship it to "whoever" instead of me. If, for whatever reason she wouldn't do that, I will priority mail it myself.
The spirit and intent of the gesture was to provide the "2nd 20" a chance.
So if you win, you will say "Thanks Cog but I don't want it. I want you to give it to a folder #21-#41 because I think they need it more"

If Cog would have made it for the top 40 folders, would you have given it to one of the next 40 if you won? Just seems like a slap in the face to me. I guess I need more coffee too.

What did I post to suggest to you that I don't want it, or that I think someone else needs it more?
Who exactly, are you under the impression that I'm slapping in the face?
I agree, your inability to understand what has previously been explained a number of times would indicate a need for further stimulus

My point of view; it has nothing to do with ego..

Compaddict, maybe you'd understand it better if Litlratt accepted the unit if he won. By accepting it, he has the right to do whatever he wishes with it. He has chose to offer up the opportunity to those that didn't make the top 20 to the next tier of 20 to give them the incentive to keep folding as much as they can.

I'm no mathematician by any definition of the word, but basically, to be folders ranked 21-40, your chances of winning this would be 5% (1-20) x 5% (21-40) or 5% of a 5% chance.

Basically, those who aren't in the Top 20 but are in the Top 40 have a 0.25% chance of winning this prize too Well done Indignity

Ok, so basically his chance is a wild card. I think I got it now but why doesn't he just have his own givaway instead of using someone elses? That's where I'm confused because it seems he doesn't want or need it except to basically use the winnings to have his own contest. Am I still missing the point?
post #326 of 426
His chance of winning is just the same as you & I have.

Sure, he could go ahead & have another contest, but it would almost be pointless (unintended pun sorry).

C'mon dude, give the guy a break, he's trying to do a good deed is all!

What if you're choice was to make a video of you smashing it with a hammer & up it to youtube? That would be your prerogative right?

I think we are getting lost on the fact that Cog put this together for team 37726's benefit. Sure the prize is the incentive, but lets not lose the reason we are here in the first place. I'm sure she's also getting a little perturbed by the tossing going on here.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to dis Litlratt. He's a good power folder and I'm sure he has good intentions. I was just trying to understand what he was trying to do. Just seems to me if someone gave me quad and I turned around and gave it to someone else, doesn't seem like much of a thank you. I guess that sums up my point if it makes sense.

Honestly does it really matter what his reasons are?
