Meda, I think you know you are right!! You could not come up with an answer like that if you did not know!Could you?


In other words you are today's KatKwiz Whiz, and yes, you are right!

CONGRATULATIONS!2,000 points will be deposited into your account by Persi unless he sees some pizza that he can buy with those points along the way.

Answer: Look at how many posts I have for a reference. Select MembersList. Simply click on Posts, which sorts members by the number of times they have posted. In the upper right are a bunch of numbered boxes, which for me reads Page 1 of 807. Page length is controllable so I cannot tell you what yours says but you can do a mouse over of the numbers and take a guess at where to start. So, click on one of the numbers and see where you are by number of posts and adjust accordingly until you find the point spinning spiral of The KatKwiz Kats. Looking to the left of the Search function you will see the range of posts displayed on that page, my case it is 121-150. So the top one is 121 and I only need to count from there until I get to 131.

KatKwery
10 more days

And now for possibly the hardest question of all time. Please read carefully.

Bonus: If the top 130 posters were to just quit posting, and the KatKwiz Kats were to continue posting as they have in the past, give the date that the latter would be in position number 1. __(day)__ __(month)__ __(year)____

(The question assumes nobody below Persi & Alley would pass them in posts.)

Ok! This is a tough one!
It would take 5557 days for the Kats to outpost the current top poster.
So the date would be.....
June 9, 2023

I knew the 131 was right, but when I posted I wasn't sure that is what you wanted.. I was thinking it shouldn't be that easy

Your date is absolutely correct! Although it could be challenged.
I thought I was going to get away today from having to say "just fill in the blanks". The problem with supplying additional information is that it gives valuable information to other players to usurp your points and also gives away information that might be used in future KatKwery questions.

It is in the rules: Just fill in the blanks, never give information on how you found the information UNLESS the blank looks like this: _______(one or more steps)_____. The cats have decided to penalize you half of your winnings today just as a reminder to all.
Nonetheless, you solved a complex problem and are a winner in every sense!

However since you did furnish valuable information, let's give the other 350 points to the person that answers this:

MuleNag came up with the number 5557 by _________(one or more steps)_________.

This is an example of when you would explain how you got your answer.

Whew! I'm shocked I got it right! I wasn't sure if you were going by 5556 days or 5557, that is why I added it to my answer. I won't get into the the technicalities of my confusion...'cuz that will give away even more info!

Thanks Persi and Alley!!

It is beginning to look like nobody is able to figure out how you came up with 5556 or 5557?! If nobody else wants that 350 points, the cats will send them to you. Or perhaps it really is that hard. Let me rephrase it and see if we get an answer.

MuleNag says if everybody else stopped posting, The KatKwiz Kats would be the top TCS poster in 5556 or 5557 days. Can anybody else explain these numbers????

Oh good grief, lol!


When I did this (and had the same answer as our winner)

Rosiemac had 35,547 posts
subtracted your 3487 posts
divided the difference by your average posts per day, 5.77 at the time
ergo, 5556 days

Good Grief indeed! Yes, that is it because the question said the cats would post as before so you had to look at their profile and see what their average posts were per day. So, you get the 350 points!

It was also no easy task to add 5556 days to today and come up with the exact date!

actually, I found an online site that let me pick two dates and would give me the number of days between them, I just kept moving forward until I got the date, lol!
