As a fellow play-along host, I would like to point out how infuriating it is to see a game go this slowly.  Since Bob restarted your show a week ago, you've had a grand total of three responses from your players.  I understand you have been distracted, but once you restart your show, you should be ready to go.

Going forward, you need to make sure you do everything you can to make sure your players know what's going on.  Checking silverice's profile, he has not been on the site in two weeks, and I doubt AMGray even knew the show was back up.  Sending frequent PMs and posting time limits in the thread, as I do as needed, will help.

Also, taking this long to do a show (particularly a half-hour show) is beyond unfair to the other people who are waiting to host.


Had yet another stressful day, but I'm completely ready to go.

123123123: $2,225
AMGray1986: $9,999
GuyWithFace: $3,000
ShatterMySoul99: $3,100

And the actual reta-

*BUZZ* *BUZZ*

OH, COME ON! MORE DELAYS?! You've all overbid. Lowest bid is $2,225. Go lower than $2,225, 123123123.

I PROMISE this game will be done VERY soon. I'll make sure that it will be finished before the end of the month.

$750.
The above is my opinion and mine alone.

To answer your questions: yes, I am a guy and yes, I have a face. (I also have the occasional spurt of weirdness.)

Quote from: thepriceis_J
People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

123123123: $998
AMGray1986: $675
GuyWithFace: $750
ShatterMySoul99: $1

And the actual retail price is...



Well, what do you know? It's 123123123!

(Walking 2007)

(cheers and applause)

Hello, 123123123. You got into Contestant's Row and got right back out! How are you doing?

123123123: Good.

That's good. Now, I have some GREAT prizes for you. Look!

Rich Fields: First, a new ATV!



A charming dinette!



And a new upright piano!



Now, I'm sorry to say that we don't have plugs for these three products. 444dd, our graphics manager and prize picture manager, accidentally forgot to send them.

Now, you are going to play Most Expensive for those three prizes. All you have to do is pick the one that is the most expensive and you win all three! Which one is it? The ATV, dinette, or piano?

I'm positive it is the ATV.

Or maybe it's the piano, since they can be quite expensive.

But it doesn't look like one of those baby grand ones, so I think it's the ATV.

But I've completely neglected the dinette, they are usually really cheap or super pricey.

That one does look nice, but all the prizes look nice.

Now that I think about it, most pianos cost more than ATV's and dinette sets.

But that goes back to my previous point about it not being a fancy piano, so I've narrowed it down to the first two.

The ATV doesn't seem to have too many features.

But it was my gut pick, so I don't want to lose because I second-guessed myself.

However, the more I think about it, the more I think it's the dinette.

Great, now the piano's creeping back into my mind.  :-?


I'll going to go with the dinette, and please don't ask me if I'm sure.  :-)

I hope so.

What's the price of the ATV?



UH OH!

(Loud groaning)

I think you should have gone with your gut, but maybe you can still win. The piano?



Well, you were wrong about the piano. If the dinette is more than $4,999, you win all three! Is it?



NO!!!!!

(Buzzer)

(Losing horns)

We are SKUNKED! A winless show!

Why, oh, why didn't you go with your gut? BUT, you are going to be in the showcases with silverrice878, so maybe you can redeem yourself. The showcases are up next.

By the way, does anyone know where silverrice878 is? He was last active on the 4th. I don't want anymore delays. Is there someone that might be able to replace him?
