Im offering 1 billion points to the poster who gives us the most thought provoking thread and who can back up his arguments the best.

There must be at least 10 new threads to choose from and you can enter as many as you like.

Entrants must have the words 1 billion in the title for it to be eligible.

Threads must be about boxing HISTORY.

No trolling or baiting to gain responses.

You will have 10 days starting now to get your threads rolling and ready to be voted for.

At the end of 10 days a public poll will be presented to determine the winner. voting will last 4 days and threads will be allowed to continue during this period.

In event of a tie the points will be dispersed equally.

So who wants a billion points?

I think that's a pretty nifty idea & with some of the talented writers in this section, it ought to make for some great reading (and debating :biggthump)

I'm guessing there's a limit on how many [1 Billion] threads a person can make ?.

As far as Im concerned posters can make as many threads as they want and we'll vote them all down to a winner. I would like the threads to be serious in nature with poster actually trying to win the contest rather than create thread after thread. If a poster keeps throwing up meaningless thread after thread without ever trying to make a strong argument for its content I will delete it to prevent confusion. But I'd like to see as many serious threads as can be made.

This only goes for contest threads. All other history threads are welcome.

My good friend Talisayen has donated another billion for this contest so get crackin on those threads. There are still 4 more days to enter your threads and there is now TWO BILLION e-points to be won. My biggest questions now are WHO WANTS THOSE POINTS, and should we do winner take all or a first, second and third place?

Winner take all IMO.

Please consider extending the deadline another 14 days so there'd be more threads to choose from.

I got a couple of ideas for threads, but havent really had the time.... :)

So by "thought provoking" do you mean most replies?

Its going to be voted on by everybody willing to vote, but Im looking for the most rational and logical defenses for your point of view. Now if you have a thread with 2 or 3 posters arguing logically in both directions....that is what I would really like to see. Lots of posts backed by reasonable and factual conclusions!

Since nobody else has given any input besides Bat, this contest will be a winner take all 2 billion point contest. By request it will be extended another 14 days.

Good luck and get those threads going!!!
