Ok, here's the rules for this seven word story thread. You can do one of three things to play this game: A. Post a suggested seven word continuation for the thread B. Give a post either a thumbs up or thumbs down (including your own posts), or C. Quote an eligible post as the winning continuation. In order to be eligible to be the winner, a post must: A. Have at least two more thumbs up than thumbs down, and B. Be tied or in the lead for highest thumbs-up-minus-thumbs-down total You may thumbs up or thumbs down as many posts as you want. You may post as many suggested continuations as you want. You don't have to quote an eligible post as the winner if you don't want to, but... only one eligible post may be quoted as the winner. Here's an example of how it works. Let's say the following two post are on the thread. ------- post 1. One day I was walking along when... (one thumb up) ----- post 2. One thing that people never understand is (one thumb up) ----- User A posts another suggested continuation and also gives post 2 a thumbs up User B then sees the thread, and quotes post 2 (which now has two thumbs up) User C. then posts a suggested continuation to the winning post quoted above, and the game continues Ok, ready? Let's see how this goes.
