TBG Market

AKA the most complicated TBG I've ever made.

The stock market meets TBGs!

This is a game where you invest in TBGs you expect to do really well.
(I don't know much about the actual stock market, so I will probably use some of the terms and phrases wrong)

The currency for this game is called "posts". If you want to join just say so and you can start with 10 posts.
In this game each topic is worth posts, the amount it is worth equals the amount of replies that it has received over the past week. That means the amount of posts a TBG is worth will constantly be changing.
You are probably wondering how you get more posts. To do so you must strategically invest in TBGs. Here is how that works:

To get more posts you must buy and sell "Stocks" (this is called 'investing'). A stock is worth 1% of the TBG you are investing in is worth (eg a stock from a TBG worth 100 is worth 1 post). (I will do all of the math though, you just say how many posts you want to spend on what TBG and I will tell you how many stocks you now own.) Over time the worth of the TBG you invested in will change making the worth of your stocks change too, at the right moment you should sell your stocks and earn posts. Be careful though, if you wait too long the value of your stocks might drop causing you to lose posts!

This probably sounds really complicated but all the stuff I just told you is the stuff I have to do (just told you to help you understand how the game works). All you have to do is use these commands:

Join
You are in the game and start with 10 posts. (Joining does not require you to play)

Invest
For purchasing stocks. Simply say "Invest x posts in y". Example: "Invest 3 posts in My wish is ruined"

Sell
For selling stocks. Say "sell my 8 stocks in My wish is ruined". You must wait 1 week after you bought a stock to sell it.

Loan
If you are desperate you can get a loan by saying "Loan me 4 posts", you will have to pay it back later though, and it will cost more to pay back. There is 10% interest per week that this topic is posted in. (If the topic is not posted in that week there is no interest.)

Transfer
If you are feeling nice or lost a bet or something you can transfer some of your posts to another player, just say "Transfer 4 posts to x user"

Check
Wondering what your stocks are worth but are too lazy to find out yourself? Just post "Check" and I will respond telling you! Please do not check too often though.

Additional Rules
If you wish to invest in a topic it must have received at least 5 replies in the past week
There can never be more than 100 stocks purchased from a single TBG at a time
RPGs are allowed too
After 1 month stocks are auto-sold
If you invest in a TBG that allows double-posting then any double posts you make will not count towards the worth of that TBG
Also, I will be rounding a lot in this game, just so there are no decimal stocks/posts

If you have any questions ask them below.

Done.

Currently each stock in the topic is worth 1 post, so those 5 stocks costed 5 posts.

That's a little complicated as of now, I might add a command for that soon. For now you can find the amount of replies it got in the past week (It doesn't have to be perfect) then use this site. Use the top bar and in the first box type how many stocks you have and in the second type in how many posts the topic has gotten in the past week, then it'll tell you what they are all worth together.

Right now your 5 stocks are worth 5.8 posts. I round the decimal out so that is 6 posts.

Here are your stocks:
10 in Infinite Clipboard
2 in the Front Page game
5 in the sky is the limit

Each post in that topic is worth 1.28 stocks, so your total is about 5 posts.

Re: TBG Market

It's been about a week since this started, so the game can finally begin.

Remember though, you have to wait at least one week after you bought your stocks to sell them.
