4 replies received for challenge 7. 22 to go. No rush though... I understand you'll probably want to talk to your teammate and figure out some totally awesome strategy but end up overthinking it and facepalm when you see the results. 8)

So are we guessing the average price of one ticket,which I thought was the original question in our answers, or the price for two tickets?

The question specifies a pair of tickets. Always has. A pair is two. The guesses to challenge 7 will be to get as close to the average of everyone's answers to that question with out going over. I hope people didn't submit answers without understanding the original question, but it's a little late to be making changes. So I guess part of the challenge 7 replies will also need to take into consideration how many people you think misunderstood it and only gave the price for one. This is becoming less intuition and more a pure guessing game. :(

Misunderstandings are routine part of life...

I do wonder - can't an answer be changed if before deadline and/or all answers received?

I thought about that, but to keep it fair, that would mean allowing (or possibly requiring) everyone to have the chance to change their answer. And I'm concerned about both the time it would take to do that as well as the possibility that a percentage of sharks could affect the outcome of this challenge in their favor by changing their answers, even if they did understand the original question. I want to keep things as equitable as possible.

Here's a thought... what if I wipe out all the answers to the original question about ticket prices and replace them with the answers given for challenge 7? The intent stays the same, but the average number then becomes a moving target until all answers are recorded. And hopefully any confusion will have been removed by this discussion.

Any thoughts?

For the time being everyone can assume there is no formal deadline for challenge 7 until this gets resolved. And if it does change, I'll allow those who have already submitted an answer the opportunity to revise it if they wish.

I took Oilersnut's question as asking whether answers to challenge 7, already submitted, can be changed.

I say leave it as it is. Just as in all of the other challenges once you submit your reply that is it. I say it for the following reasons, (yes I know they are all selfish ones)

1. allowing people to change their already answers will delay the game. and right now I am alone with cbob. :D

2. Men dont read what ya write they interpret in their mind what ya mean. It isnt a misunderstanding it is just the way their brains work. Trust me I know. ;)
