    Default HOT TOPIC: Promo

    Hi Guys

    This will be a long running promo. Atleast once a month I will start a HOT TOPIC thread. You will recognise it as it will have a big HOT TOPIC at the start in the title.

    The first HOT TOPIC post will be this Monday, after that they will appear randomly throughout the month without warning.

    The way the hot topic will work is a posters will get PFO points for being the 5th, 10th, 20th, 50th, 100th, 200th and on the unlikely event 500th poster in the thread.

    Below is how the PFO points will be distributed:

    5th post = 500PFO points
    10th post = 1000PFO points
    20th post = 2000PFO points
    50th post = 5000PFO points
    100th post = 10000PFO points
    200th post = 25000PFO points
    500th post = 60000PFO points


    *Important Rule

    To qualify for the points from the winning post, the winning post MUST be more than 10 words long.

    So for example if the 10th post in the thread is only 5 words, those points are lost forever.

    I'm half tempted to spam this thread until I get to the 5th post, then post something.... longer.

    Hi Marm

    This isn't the thread that counts. This is just explaining how it works. The 1st Hot Topic thread is the pokerstars one: http://www.pokerforums.org/general-p...ic-should.html

    It seems that was already done.

    the thread where it counts has already one instance of back to back posting to get the "magic number." It really is stuff like this that will halt this promo idea.

    I could simply hold a conversation with myself to get the magic number if needed.

    Oh, I just found out you have to wait 25 seconds between posts. That shouldn't affect this too much.
