Prediction Contests Are Just-For-Fun Games

"There are things that are uncertain for us, things more or less probable,

and we seek to compensate for the impossibility of knowing them

by determining their different degrees of likelihood.

So it was that we owe to the weakness of the human mind one of the most delicate

and ingenious of mathematical theories, the science of chance or probability."

Instructions

 

In order to post your predictions, you have to do the following:

  • Select with your mouse specified content of the Post named Prediction Contest Design
  • Copy the selected content
  • Go to Reply Box at the end of the Page, click on "Reply to this topic"
  • Paste the copied content (When information "You have pasted content with formatting" appears at the end of the Reply Box, ignore it, it will disappear eventually. DO NOT click on "Remove formatting" under any circumstances)
  • Once you have specified content in new Post, start making your predictions according to the Rules
  • To post your predictions, click on "Submit Reply" button

 

Rules

 

Erase "Yes" or "No", depending on what your answer for each single bet will be. If you want to answer a bet with "Yes", all you have to do is erasing the word "No", leaving only "Yes" as your answer.
 

  • Overwrite the "X" with a number between 1 and 10. Those will be the points you distribute for a specific bet. If you win a bet, you will win the amount of points you gave for that bet but be careful, if you lose the bet, the amount of points you gave for that bet will be taken away from your overall points in this contest.

 

  • You can't leave out a bet. All bets must be given 1 point minimum at least. 10 points per bet are the maximum.

 

Example

 

"Simone Biles will win at least four total medals." - YES - 7

 

- If you choose “Yes” and she wins 4 medals this summer, you will win the bet and get points for that question - 7 points won.

- If she doesn’t while you said "Yes", you’ll lose the bet and points - 7 points lost.

- If you choose "No" and she wins all 4 medals, you will lose the bet - 7 points lost.

- If she doesn't while you said "No", you will win the bet and points - 7 points won.

 

You have a total of 400 points to distribute for all 120 bets. You don't have to use all 400 points if you don't want to but you can't go above 400 for all 120 bets counted together. Use your points wisely.

 

The user with the highest amount of points at the end of the competition (after the end of the Games) will be declared the winner. Should there be more than one user with the same amount of points, the first priority will be the amount of bets won, then the highest scores won in those same bets. The final answers for the contest's bets will be set as of August 22nd (the day after the olympics), meaning possible future changes in them (ie. due to doping cases) won't be taken into consideration.

 

If a bet is already decided before the start of the Games (due to injury of an athlete mentioned in it, doping, etc) that bet will be eliminated from the contest and all users will be asked to re-distribute the points they invested in said bet. If an user is unable to edit his post before the start of the competition, then those points will be lost for the final count.

 

Please, take into account when placing your bets that for all of those that ask for the position of a nation in the medal table we are using, unless specifically said otherwise, the criteria of Gold Medals first (then Silvers, then Bronzes).

 

You can enter the competition whenever you want. However all votes have to be done before the 1st Day of the Olympics. August 5th, h. 23:59 (GMT -3) will be considered the deadline, you can’t edit your votes after that.

 

There are no Points to earn concerning General Standings at this Prediction Contest. You're also not obligated to hide your prediction posts this time, but you can still do it if you wish so. To do that, just copy the command [ hide] at the top of your prediction post (delete the space between the bracket "[" and the text "hide" in "[ hide]" ).

 

Please post your comments, thoughts, questions concerning this competition in the specific Discussion Topic created for it.
