    shooks this is never gonna be finished in 10 days or so...can I suggest we do something like subtract 50 (or actually more like 70 might be better) off all the subjects to try and get somewhere while still treating all the subjects equally?

    :nah: that won't work - a better idea would be to increase the power of everyone to + or - 10 per time, instead of the 5 that it currently is.

    Probably a stupid question but why won't that work (apart from the fact dance only has 20 points)? That would be a step in the right direction...not sure we would finish it still though. It's just occurred to me that I'm on holiday next week anyway so it doesn't even matter to me....:lol:

    It would also knock PE out as well as putting English Lit and Drama extremely close to going out as well. Removing 50 points across the board would have more of an effect to some subjects than it would to others i.e. Eng Lit would be almost out yet Maths or Economics would largely be unaffected.

    It would probably be better to give everyone 10 points instead of 5 - since most of them seem to be now about getting the subjects out the quickest, instead of protecting subjects they like, more points would result in subjects being whittled down more quickly, and the game finishing quicker.

    Still no way of getting it done within 7 days (GCSE Results Day).

    Nice ideas: let's do a bit of both. 25 point hit on all subjects (cheerio dance) and all posts from now on have 10 point power.
