How are points rewarded? (General Guide)A dare is awarded points on a number of things. It mostly involves how much
is explained. If there little is explained, very little points will be
awarded. A mod will look at the dare and see if the response properly
explains everything. I will now give examples to a dare that will go up in
points. All of these are made up situations and are gender neutral. The scale
is hard to show since most under 18 dares are not worth a whole lot of points.
The Dare: Be tickled by the next player for 2 minutes. Maximum points – 8
Deny: A denied responce will not even show up. The things that are denied
are responces that are completely unneeded. Like say the word "Dog"
randomly and nothing else. These will not get any points, and won't show up
under the dare.
Update: A new rule has been passed. All dares done by guests will now be
denied also. You will have to get an account to be able to submit a dare.Update 2: Short responses (under 9 characters) will also no longer be
0 points: This is for people who don’t do the dare, but make a response to
something. “Hey, you are pretty brave.” “I want to try this one some day.”
Another situation is when the dare response given is not about the person
logged on, such as “I didn’t do this, but my friend did, I laughed at how
funny they looked being tickled like that, rolling around everywhere.” Don’t
be discouraged to just not write about it. Just because you get no points
doesn’t mean you shouldn’t share. A lot of us like to read about anyone’s
adventures, and would love it if you shared it.
1 point: For short responses that don’t explain anything past that you did
it. Such as “I did it.” “Done” “easy” “No problem” all will only get you a
Update: These kind of responces will no longer allowed.
2 points: Single sentences that only describe in brief detail what
happened, or explain the basic feeling you had during it. Things like “It
was fun.” “
are all examples of this.
3-4 points: This is rewarded to those that describe what happened, but not
in depth. Examples being, “The guy came up and started tickling me under
my armpits. I couldn't stop laughing. He tickled me in a few other places,
but I was able to last.”, “I had a hard time doing this. I am very ticklish
so this 2 minutes were horrible. I couldn't stop laughing, but luckily it
ended.” “Well I thought I'd be ok in the first minute, it seemed my friend
was going easy on me, but I soon found out that the worse was to come.
By the end I felt like I was going to pee my pants.” This most often
covers dares that have multiple sentences and tell what happened, but
don’t go into specific detail. Usual something like thiswill only reach
5-6 points: This if for a multi sentence response that describes both
feelings and what happened really well. It isn’t absolutely perfect but it’s
good and the reader can tell what happened. “I stood there waiting for
him to start. The other guys said go and started the timer. I was
laughing 5 sec into it. The person doing it was really being relentless,
getting under my arm, and on my neck. I soon was on the floor, but then
they got to my feet. My feet are absolutely ticklish. I was so relieved
when it was all done.”
6-8 points: Maximum points are hard to achieve. The whole response needs
to perfectly tell what happened and all that went on. The reader needs to be
able picture it happening, to picture themselves in your shoes. The story
has to be able to be as good as if the person was watching you do it. “I stood
there waiting for it. The tension was horrible. They just stared at me, thinking
of where they would start. I was pretty afraid. When it began I didn't know
what was going on. I couldn't stop laughing and had to close my eyes. I felt
him tickling me right under my arm, one of my worse spots. His fingers just
kept just brushing my skin, making my just laugh more and more. I had already
fell to the ground. I was beggin them to stop, but they just told me I had to wait
it out. I almost felt like I'd pee and they said I still had a minute to go. It was
only half of it I thought. The person then started getting me under my neck.
When I clamped my shoulders over my neck to stop the person, they just went
for my armpits. Then when I thought I could stop them, they went for my sides
and stomach. No matter what I did I couldn't stop. When it was all over all I
could was squirm. I was tired from all the laughing and needed a huge break.
That was the most intense tickling I ever had. I think I might just do it again
some day.” Now for full points it won’t always have to be this long, but this
is the level of description we want.
The dares are not graded upon content. You will not have to worry if your
story isn’t exciting. It will not be graded upon if you are a guy or girl, if you
went above the requested dare, if you did something more entertaining, the
level of excitement. The grading will be purely on difficulty of the dare and
how well explained it is. It is understood that though some dares are hard to
go into more detail. The best thing to do is do as much as you can. If it is a
simple dare like: Go do jumping jacks for 15 secs, then you can say something
“No one around, and so I figured it would be simple. I did a few and thought
that this probably looked rediculous. I imagined what people might say if they
saw the silly sight I was showing. I got finished and was generaly tired since I
had just done some work outs a few moments before and was still tired from
all that.” That is a good example of dare that normally would have gotten a one
sentence response, and only minimal points, but instead now would probably
get close, if not full, points..
Pictures follow a slightly different scale. A picture will on most occasions
will get full points, but this isn’t always true. If the picture has
absolutely nothing to do with the dare, it will be ignored. The same example
dare as before will be used.
0 Points: The picture is going along with a comment that is not part of
doing the dare. “Hey awesome, I wish I could do that.” Picture: a guy giving
2-7 points: If there is a very poor response and the picture doesn’t show
enough, it will only be rewarded a small amount, usually about half and up,
depends greatly on the dare. Example, “Did it.” Picture: shows two people
who look like they might have just tickled eachother.
8 points: The picture specifically shows the person doing the dare. It also
has a description to explain what the picture doesn’t. “I was tickled for about
2 sec and was already ont he floor. That's when my friend took this pick, its
while I was being tickled on the foot. They continued to tickle my foot until I
begged them to stop, and then they went to my sides which were ever
worse.” Picture: The person is on the floor, with his foot being held down
by the other player, obviously the player is in distress.
If the picture is obviously not the persons, such as a guy posts a picture of
a girl, and it is known he is a guy, it will be denied, no points. Also
if the picture is irrelevant to the dare, like let’s say it’s a picture of a
cat, and there is no description, or no description that implies that the
person did the dare, it too will be denied.
Truths aren’t worth as much, but can be easy. The problem with this though
is people give truths not as much work as they would a dare. I will not get
into the specifics as deeply with truths since they are hard to judge, I
will merely discuss it. When responding to one, do the best you can. You
will not be rewarded full points for a minimal answer. Don’t just say a
number of times you’ve done something, explain it out more. It is hard to
answer the question in detail when there is nothing to tell. If your answer
is no, then explain why you said no, it doesn’t matter if the question asked
you why or why not. It is always best with truths to explain why, or the
whole thing. As in dares, points will be rewarded those with good detail.
Those who do exceptional detail will be rewarded the most points.
