Title: Jaboticaba 45 ACT giveaway conclusion
Post by: Jaboticaba45 on September 10, 2022, 09:59:14 PM
Hey forum,
If you don't remember the GGG from last April, well fear no more.
I just took the ACT friday and decided to do a large giveaway. I don't know my score yet, so I thought could be cool to do a guess my score, win cool prizes.

Here's how to participate.
1. guess each score for each section (english, math, reading, science)
2. Each score goes on a scale from 1-36. 1 being the lowest, 36 being the highest
3. The winners will be announced once I get my score back


PRIZES
So here's how the prize giveaway works. It's free. If you win, you pay me nothing
there will be 3 people who win.
1st place to the person who guesses the closest
2nd place
3rd place
To see who won, I'll see which scores were the closest by subracting the guessed score to the actual score using absolute value. Whoever has the least number wins.
Here's what I am giving away
Each winner can take one plant


Dona gal jaboticaba
Annona salizmanii
Eugenia pyriformis var. gigante
Eugenia multicostata octocostata
grafted scarlet scion from fruiting tree :-*
and if you guess my score score for score, I'll give you a plinia rara plant! Yep, I got my hands on 1 extra I can give away.




Here's an example
you guess:
English 26
Math 30
Reading 24
Science 21


The actual score was *
26 English
28 Math
22 Reading
18 Science
So you were 7 points off my total score




If two people are tied in points I'll do a spinner to determine who wins on the band app.
Maybe I'll even livestream this on the band app
Shoutout to GiantGecko for the idea of using band!


Whoever is the least off my total score will win. If you guessed 26 English, 30 Math, Reading 24, and Science 18 and that was my exact score for the test, That's when you win the plinia rara. To win that, you must guess each score correctly.


Here's a hint:
I'm above the 75 percentile last test I took (April 2022). If you do digging, the GGG should have more info ;D  on last test I did (my last test score, hint, hint). But you gotta find that thread, not me.


*not my actual score lol


I hope this is something fun everyone can enjoy. You have around 2 weeks to post your guess. Once I get my score, no more guessing. This is a low risk high reward situation for everyone so I hope you have fun!
-Ryan

Don't be shy to guess!
If I hit my target score,
I'll give away
all the plants I listed so we will have 5 winners
ON the condition I get my happy score.
If not, I will be disappointed and mad and you will be disappointed and mad as your odds of winning decreased.
So let me get my score ACT please!

Hereís the plants that are going to be given away
Since I hit my target score Iíll give the rara away also
I donít think anyone guessed my score
So Iíll do a spin the wheel of everyone who participated
The rara looks really bad lol but itís alive and should recover
Whoever wins it Iíll give the choice of shipping now or waiting until it recovers and then ship

2/3. Ognin525 off by 4
2/3. Paraponera off by 4
4/5/6. Elouicious, Okvid, and FLManDan all off by 5
Congratulations!
And I'll do a spin wheel for plinia rara. Everyone who participated is included. that's a 1 in 26 chance. Yeah not good odds for you lol.

Since there are 6 winners, I'll give out another grafted scarlet to keep it fair.
If in a tie for a spot, whoever posted the guess first will get first pick
so nate gets first, ognin gets second, paraponera gets third, FL dan man for fourth, Okvid 5th, and eluoicious 6
I think that's fair. It should be
Anyways let me spin the wheel...
Ok John Travis has won the plinia rara

I hope everyone enjoyed this giveaway
And thanks everyone for the support it means a lot to me.
Lets keep growing rare fruit trees for now. And now I can relax for a bit...Uh oh now comes PSAT... ;D
And I'm still not done with ACT...there's a mandatory one for juniors in the spring. Anyways no stress for that now that I'm done!
