Ah I couldn't have said it better, or did I, LOL

I posted on another thread that I think they need to figure out a way to reward the people that actually participate and not just enter to get the prize at the expense of others work.

I was up at 5:00a, playing, i signed up on 8 accounts, 3 my own. i played all morning on each account, I must confess, I stink at this game...But I worked all morning until I had to go to work, the accounting really made me sad, I thought we would have 1/10 by 9:00am. Lets keep trying, if not ganz learned they were too ambitious.

I agree that since Ganz advertised the prize as being available even to those who just voted, there are probably a lot of players -- especially outside of WI -- that aren't really trying to play. Here at WI most of us already have that sense of community and can encourage/urge each other on, but individual players who don't have this board to "keep them going" may not feel the same urgency we do! Looks quite discouraging right now!

Looks like we made our first Communal Contest too difficult. Our formula was clearly off. We'll be making next week's challenge easier.

Do they ever do anything right the first time? LOL I'm kinda that way too though, so I'm not judging, exactly

Well, they can correct it by dropping off a few zeroes. Or maybe by counting the tournament. My last 3 games were horrendous - I ran out of moves by levels 5 and 6 each time. Never had that happen before.

I'm glad Ganz has tweeted that. I don't think anyone would join a communal contest again if this is how each weekend would be. I'm sure many of us have busy weekends and can't spend endless hours to reach an impossible goal! My sis has stopped, saying "I can get 500 kc from two employment tasks", and she's completely right. I LOVE the idea of working together for a goal (reading each others' progress has been fun), but it should be for something WORTH spending so many hours on.

I could not have put it better myself. I have played a number of Goober's Lab rounds today (even though I can't stand the game!) for the sake of trying to help everyone out, but when the goal is set too high for a prize that's not even worth it, it is difficult to stay motivated. I wish they would revise the goal for this week, though, because everyone has been working so hard that it will be a shame if we don't reach the goal (and the yellow bar is still really low).

Since Ganz has realized this, I wish they would go ahead and adjust the goal now, like to maybe 6,000,000. Otherwise, what's the point of continuing if they themselves realize it's impossible?

Actually, for the last few minutes I've been humming the song, "To Dream the Impossible Dream"! LOLOL! I think that should be our theme song! What do you think?

I also wonder if Ganz will be kind and give us some sort of cancellation prize -- or should I say "consolation" prize -- after all this hard work. Wouldn't it be nice?

Good luck everyone!!!!
The thing is, whatever formula they used is WAY off (which Ganz even admitted now), so who knows how much it is going to take to achieve the goal. It would really be a shame to have a number of people spend more than a dozen hours this weekend working towards the goal and then us not achieve it anyway. It seems kind of silly to work so hard towards a goal when we are just approaching the 1/10 mark 21 hours into a 48 hour contest. I put in more than my typical hours on WW today and definitely played more hours of Goober's Lab than I would in a few months. However, I know that there are others out there who put in WAY more time and effort and it is a shame that such an unrealistic goal was set.
