But the problem is that this will heavily put penalties on the people who were the most active in sending and answering balloons...i think Vijay should reconsider this seriously because otherwise this game might well become unending and people will begin to lose interest.

kay bolto? *o man i miss kareena*

Oh god, so you mean to say, that the figure in the Total shows the number of baloons we have with us now... Haila!!! It has increased... I am on 192 now... Confused

Let me try to show where the error is:
Vijay's current method:

Opening Balance               200
Add:            
+ Balloons Recieved and Answered Incorrectly      76      
+ Balloons Recieved and Reclaimed      1      
+ Balloons Sent (In Transit)      33      
           
Less:            
- Balloons Sent and was answered Incorrectly      128      
           
=> Total            182
--------------------------------------
CORRECT METHOD SHOULD BE:

Opening Balance               200
Add:            
+ Balloons Recieved and Answered Incorrectly      76      
+ Balloons Recieved and Reclaimed      1      
           
Less:
- Balloons Sent (In Transit)      33    &nbs p;      
- Balloons Sent and was answered Incorrectly      128      
           
Total            116

This is still unfair to those who have actively participated but o well...

I disagree with Vijays' calculations (gustakhi maaf).
The opeing balance of 200 balloons should not figure in the calculations as they are already included in the ones sent out.

I think all that needs to be done is to subtract 200 from everyboy's final total score as that is what they started with.

You are absolutely correct mudabid...but the deduction in the number that others got wrong kind of adjusts for that. The problem is taht i know that 160 people got my answers wrong...because i was closely following the questions, etc. so i dont understand (see my earlier post) how the number went down to 128 - because even if the "newbies" got kicked out, i never sent balloons to newbies...i typically sent them through the contest helper in which most people were not newbies (<20 posts)
