Daily Grind Pool

Call me cynical but I think the Daily Grind contest will go on and on and on and one of the veterans will win. From the list of the entrants (thanks to Websnark for the list!) I've picked the 8 veterans I think have the longest and most consistent updating record. Do you think one of these guys will win or one of the other entrants and if so which young upstart are you putting your money on?

Exactly. This whole exercise is akin to watching some major league baseball players "having a friendly little game" with a weekend office team.

A game that may quite possible last longer than some of us. Seriously - the more I think about this (all right I'm not thinking about it that much though) health is a critical factor in this contest. If this goes for, oh 30 more years or so, we'll have to have reporters check up on medical records.

Unless of course descendents and relatives can take over to keep the strip going...

I think being the FIRST LOSER gets you some infamy, and press is press. Whoever drops first will get a chunk of traffic to their site!
Go ahead, DJ, you know you want to!

Anyone who thinks updating one comic a day isn't enough of a challenge should try to do it for more than a year or so. ;)

Well, I had to have at least ONE vote. ;) I actually think Brad Guigar will win. Why? Because he's already dine this forever and seems to be in pretty good shape. I think he stands more of a chance of seeing 2105 than Chris or Scott or me. ;)

So anyone out of the contest yet :)

Hey, who do you think will drop out first?

I didn't notice that - Keenspace must have come back up ok? Or is it an updating problem?

I'm thinking Coffman, based solely on the amount of trash talk

So anyway, this contest is pretty gay, but aside from that, I'm wondering what happens if a creator dies in the middle of the contest. If one of their kids takes over, will they still be in the contest? To hell with 20 years... they could keep this going for TWO HUNDRED years. The winner will be whoever survives whatever nuclear holocaust happens by then.

It'll be at least 5 years, but probably more like 20.

Hey! I'm ten years older'n Kurtz! I'm an old upstart.

I did two strips a day for about a year once. 'Course, that was twenty years ago when I was the age most webcartoonists are now, and that was in pencil on typing paper distributed by means of a blue three-ring binder I carried around with me. Ah, the good old days.

These days I only knock out eight to ten a week.

I might. I'm not in it for the money and I do fall back on filler occasionally.

RE: Re: Daily Grind Pool

I'm not talking until I see some money bets :P

[quote:110cdbb69b="Anonymous"]Is the prize money being put in a savings account to earn interest?

That was my thought exactly when I first heard of this contest and who was in it :lol:

I could see it.

Clearly, I will be the winner, even if I'm still doodling when the earth goes plunging back into the sun!

I'm saying it'll be Kurtz. Just because I'd like to see people freak out.

I totally have to win now, or I'll be eating SO much crow, I'll have to enter some sort of contest about eating crow... :lol:

DITTO!

This isn't really about cash.. i mean, it IS.. but it's not./

Besides.. this isn't the "Who can throw 20 dollars away every week the longest challenge"

My prediction. This will last a year. That is all.

One of those sprite comic guys.

Is the prize money being put in a savings account to earn interest? Considering how many years before it's awarded, this seems to be an imperative.

Here's an idea ... up the stakes !!!

Why don't you get each contestants add $20 to the pot every week. I think that would thin the ranks a bit and really determine who is serious...

. I think it would kind of lame if after 5+ years the winner gets only that $ 1,120.

[quote:f84f706792="DJ_Coffman"]My prediction. This will last a year. That is all.

It just that many of the vets in this contest have already proven they can do the daily grid ... C. Crosby hasn't missed an update in 7 years! What has to happen for this contest to last only a year ?

A Massive Coronary?

Anyone in competition using a Keenspace site if the problem with their server isn't resolved by today :(

[quote:f7f98b4114="xerexes"]I didn't notice that - Keenspace must have come back up ok? Or is it an updating problem?

Yeah, it's okay now ...

You'll notice that it's been over a week and no one has dropped out yet ... the reason is no one EVER WILL ... no one wants to be the first in loser's row...

Drop outs

Where is Steve Burrell?
