@JohnHoeksema Can you resolve, please?

Hi @JohnHoeksema are you still on Manifold? It's been 8 months since I traded on this market haha. Your website appears to be down, and I think it's likely that this market will resolve to NO. If you still are around, and wanna do this, hit me up, and I can help you implement it.

predicted NO

yall i appreciate the YES's but haven't even properly implemented a counter yet

Let’s see that link!

@ian Will we see the first Manifold hug of death to a website? xD

predicted NO

@ian much love; lemme add a viewcount feature

predicted NO

come get some (plz don't ddos me)


very basic but i added TLS encryption with letsencrypt recently! progress!

@JohnHoeksema The count # displayed on the website resets when I switch browsers/profiles/view as incognito

predicted NO

@firstuserhere hmm you're totally right

predicted NO


predicted NO

@firstuserhere gimme a day or so

@JohnHoeksema goodluck!

@JohnHoeksema I bought that many shares because I wrote a simple py script to visit your website 10k times (stopped after 200), but ofc it's from a single ip

predicted YES

@firstuserhere As you evolve better ways to count, I will evolve better ways to bypass that and get my visits counted a lot more

predicted YES

@firstuserhere (if you're ok with that)

predicted NO
predicted NO

haha jk that's hilarious; i think 1 visit per day per ip is a fair metric for the website and this poll; what do you think?

predicted NO

@firstuserhere i refuse to let my poll be goodharted on its second day

predicted YES

@JohnHoeksema Yeah yeah ofc. I was having fun, because after a long time today, I wrote some python scripts and remembered how fun this was. So, i've been python scripting everything

predicted NO

@firstuserhere hell yeah i love it; one of my fav python scripts i wrote is a really short one to generate sets of sudoku numbers under various conditions

predicted NO
