What if I just made it 5/5?
I just can't see the reason someone would gamble money if they couldn't win the same amount from someone else...
Though I might be able to pull this off if everything works out the way I imagine it

Haha, I don't think these guys gamble a lot, sargas.

What sargas is saying is that it's a longshot for SPQNR to NOT have the most active members by that time. He's not betting even money on an inside straight draw!  12

I play poker. I don't gamble  12

5/5 is still an even bet (5/5, 50/50, 500/500, it's all 1 to 1) it needs to be a bet with more incentive than a mere 50/50. If you say you can do it, than give me odds. But I am not going to bet on a 'coin-toss'...

Ok. I'm offering 6.5/1 then. You pay me 2 QP if on Midnight, Jan 1, 2015 (UTC), SPQNR is the biggest corp memberwise. If it's not, I pay you 15. Deal?

2 for 15 is good for this wager, Raptor. It will give me a nice early birthday present.

Then it's 7.5 to 1.

Good luck to both of you. 1

It's 7.50 when written as decimal odds. In UK betting terms that's 6.5/1 (or 13/2 to be precise). The part before the / indicates your profit, not the total payout. 1
