a betting pool for flames. Basically, we link to any thread that's going to erupt into flames here. We don't tell anyone in that thread ANYTHING about their involvement here. We give each flame thread some sort of name or Case number and we all choose sides and bet on them. Then we have specific people, called Gladiators, enter the thread and take sides.
If your side wins, you acquire points which you gamble. Everyone starts with 10, the goal is 100 and when you win, you gain 50% of what you bet. Theoretically, you can gain 5 points in the first game, 7.5 in the next, and so on. Points are rounded UP from .5 down from .4 and so on.
With 100 points, we will sort out some sort of reward. If you LOSE the bet you lose 100% of what you bet and recieve a minor penalty. If you end up with 0 points you are out of the game and recieve a major penalty of some kind. Minor penalties come in the form of 'punishment', where you choose which. Options are... A really small temporary ban starting when you want it and ending after the set time. A situation where you have to obey a single major command thought up by the winners, it can be fairly elaborate. And a set of restrictions you have to follow for a peroid of time.
Thoughts? Ideas? This whole thing can be heavily modified but I just want you to give your basic opinion on whether you like it and whether you'd participate. If you say you would, then offer any changes you think might benefit it.
