FA Crash Tip Board

So I was thinking about doing an FA Crash Tip Board the last time, but I kinda kept it to myself. After seeing that the site can barely hold up it's own for more than a month after $10K+ was thrown at it, I guess we might as well play a game.

Tip Boards are simple. We'll have a base amount to put down, like $5 per square. One square limit. We'll set it up for half-week increments, such as 12:00AM Sunday through 11:59AM Wednesday, and 12:00PM Wednesday through 11:59PM Saturday. Buy a square for $5 with your bet on how long it will take for FA to go down again. A minimum amount of downtime should be a set time of 1-4 hours or something. That will be laid out later on what most people would agree on.

FA mods and Admins need not apply. This is simply because they could buy a square and shut it down for a while and claim to win. Totally not fair at all. This is just for the userbase to pitch in.

It will be a 50/50 style system, meaning 50% of the amount taken in will be given to the winner and the other 50% would be donated to another site/organization such as FAP or some other site that doesn't have their admins buy video cards to "work on FA with."

I will be doing this. Every penny taken in will be accounted for, even with screenshots if need-be.

Anyone like this idea?

*EDIT* Set up a board for it, as well as an e-mail address.

Look over the rules here: http://www.rojadrik.com/fatipboard/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2

Make suggestions and shit. Either post 'em here or on the board. I don't care, as long as we cover a lot of things before we get it started. I'd like to see it up and running by 11:59PM on Saturday.

FA mods and Admins need to apply...

Ment to say need not apply?

Either way I could see someone who is in with them rigging this sort of thing.
Eh, yeah, I meant that. I had SO many typos before I posted it. Long day at work, for sure. Fixed.

Hence the one square limit, 50/50, and other stuff, and even making the remaining amount going towards something that isn't FA at all.
isnt this somewhat illegal or something
Beats me, and I could care less. It's non-profit for the most part.
lollll
I don't think people WANT to give FA any more of their money, personally, but I may be wrong, here.
ZERO of it is going to FA. Not a single penny.
Oh sorry, I'm half asleep and read the post wrong, I misread that it would go to FAP. WELL THEN, CARRY ON GOOD CHAP~
throwing money at the problem works dude that's what TROGDOR is there for to BURNINATE the shit out of their coffers

if TROGDOR can't BURNINATE money well then the FA train stops chugging
Hey, it's a good way to laugh at FA's downfall, and possibly get a little money from it as well.
Ha ha, fuck yeah I was wondering when someone would really go and take bets on when FA will fuck up again. Lord knows I've joked about setting up a betting system with my friends over it enough times. Though I did get £10 from a friend because they thought we were being serious. I just never told them.
