SMALL VOTING CHANGE
When you vote today you may notice the countdown timer has been moved. It is now on the green button and says “Locked in X secs”. I made this change from feedback from a player who was confused about the countdown on the red button. They thought since it said “Choose Again (in X secs)” that if they waited 10 seconds they would get to choose again. So they were disappointed when their answer was locked in after waiting when they wanted to pick another answer.
And they are right. I’m not sure how I missed this for so long but after looking at it I can see where it would be confusing, especially for a new player. I apologize for the confusion and hopefully this change clears it up. If it doesn’t for you, reply and let me know. Please.
GoT SEASON 7
I have really tried not to read anything about the new season. I think I half watched the first trailer that came out. I have avoided any subsequent trailers.
But I am super excited for Season 7 of Game of Thrones on Sunday. I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to ask about it today.
ARCHIVING THESE EMAILS ON MEDIUM
As I alluded to yesterday I am going to start archiving these emails on Medium. Unfortunately it looks like I cannot create and backdate earlier emails directly on Medium so for right now they will start from yesterday’s and go forward from there.
If you have a suggestion on how I can get the past emails onto Medium please let me know.
These emails can be found at https://medium.com/daily-emails(Yes I am surprised I got this URL)
YOUR COMMENT OF THE DAY
“I once slept through the house across from me literally exploding. So I have three different alarms that I set every night, including an alarm clock for the hearing impaired.”
- sjeter99 (My Alarm)
I’m sorry for forgetting cat and children as answers for this question.
I got a good suggestion for how to expose the comments better. It is not something I can do immediately and I need to think more on how to execute it properly but it has promise.
#DAILYPRIZE WINNER + #GAMEPRIZE POT
Yesterday’s #DailyPrize winner was Zekthezookeeper. They have been notified and been paid. They won $4.
#GamePrize pot is now $9 + a Jeffrey Wong custom pro athlete face portrait painting. This game’s last question is July 31st.
All the best,
JULY 2017 GAME FORMAT
You vote each day. The questions will open at 10 am est and close the next day at 10 am est.
You will have 2 ways to win.
- #DailyPrize — Each day I will select somebody who voted the previous day. They will have a chance to win up to $5. $3 for voting + $1 if they answered in the majority + $1 if they referred another player at any time in the past. I announce the #DailyPrize by noon est. If you want to hear it first follow Crowdini on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and/or Crowdini on Snapchat. Otherwise it will be posted in the next day’s email. Of course the winner will be notified via email immediately upon selection. NEW: The #DailyPrize winner will have 72 hours to claim the daily prize or the cash goes into the Game Prize pot.
- #GamePrize — You will also be playing for points. The points system will be based on the percentage of votes the answer you chose receives. If the answer you chose received 32% of the vote, you receive 32 points for that day. At the end of the game the player with the most points will win whatever cash wasn’t claimed by the daily winners.
- #GamePrize winner will also receive a custom 12"x12" face portrait painting of the pro athlete they choose. This is from Jeffrey Wong. It retails for $400.
**You can also receive up to 25 points this game for referrals. I give 5 points per referral. You can always refer more which I would appreciate but you will only get counted for up to 5 this game.
I have budgeted $5 a day for prizes. (That number will go up as we get more players. So refer your friends if you want the prizes to get better. :)
The game starts today, July 6th, and goes through July 31. That is 26 days. 26 x $5 = $130.
I will still give out the #DailyPrize up to $5. However any of that $5 that is left over goes into the pot for the #GamePrize.
In this daily email I will update each day what the #GamePrize cash amount is currently along with announcing the #DailyPrize winner.
Yesterday’s Question: What wakes you in the morning?
Majority Answer: My Alarm
