Usually what I do is have a + or - sign in parentheses after my number.

That works, yes.

Have to do that or your posts are not valid. Sorry mate. @Dman979 right?

You have to clearly state what the number is now, and the operation you did on it. You could do that with a math equation, a news report, or just adding a +/- at the end of the number.

What a strange double post you had there, GM!

Double posting, I see.

Mods, please give us a ruling. I do not want to be accused (again) of violating game rules... @Dman979

Frybert's post is correct, and overrode yours due to skirmish rules.

I think it should be -20, but the positives are going to find a way to bs us so let's just wait it out

-19 (-1)

I think you should read the rules and stop with this nonsense already.

-20 -

-21(-)

Ok. Well, considering my post, on my phone, is listed first, I am not sure how the skirmish rule works. I'm thinking I'm done with this thread...

EDIT- yes, that's how it should be.

Yup. Last one prevails. But help us win first, then leave.

So according to that, I could just put -100 and be done with it?

if you get enough people to post within 1 minute so you can go from -21 to -100, yeah

otherwise, nope

I know.

And I forgot what I was talking about for a second, so you can blame me there.

7. In the case of two or more posts from two or more different people being posted at the same time(give or take a minute) trying to subtract/add to the same number simultaneously , the post that appears last on the thread counts toward the change in the current number (this does not allow override over winning posts). This is to avoid needless confusion and people can simply read the last post to continue the game. You also cannot spam posts in an attempt to override another person's change during the 1 minute window, only your earliest post will count in that situation. So don't spam.

Special clause for rule 7: Rule 7 cannot be invoked if in doing so it violates rule 2. So one person cannot override another person's post if they are holding the currently contested number.

No, unless you do what JoseEduardo suggested.

1. You must add or subtract 1 (+1 or -1) for each post.

6. ... If someone intentionally jack up a ton of numbers at once and reach a winning number in just a few posts, that is way too obvious and won't count as a win....
