Guidelines for prediction corner
« on: April 18, 2008, 03:01:46 PM »
This group is for anyone who has had a premonition or thinks they have deciphered a quatrain. For anyone who feels like posting, understand these truths:

1. Write in as straightforward way possible. Say what you mean and don't bore people with vague language, riddles, allegories or whatever.
2. Be specific. If you think a ship will sink then say "a ship will sink". Do not expect anyone to be impressed if you say "a disaster will happen" without saying what disaster actually is.
3. Limit your prediction. Put a date on your prediction or a time frame. Open ended predictions will always come true, so what's the point?
4. One prediction at a time! If you have more than one prediction, split them out into separate predictions rather than making people wade through a laundry list.
5. Don't predict the obvious. Quakes or hurricanes strike particular places all the time, so don't bother predicting something that will happen anyway.
6. Even a broken clock is right twice a day! Anybody can post a dozen semi-likely predictions and be assured of a few hitting. It does not mean much if the rest missed.
7. No retroactive predictions. Predicting something before the event would be nice.
8. No links to offsite predictions. Make your prediction here for all to see where you cannot change it afterwards.

Your prediction will be taken more seriously if it is detailed and highly specific. Open ended, ambiguous or vague predictions mean very little. Attempting to massage a vague prediction to fit some event will be seriously frowned upon.

Important note: Due to the nature of this group, edits and deletions are not permitted.
