all you have to do is click "see the results".  they're all visible to everyone -- just not who-guessed-who.

well.  i can see who guessed who because i needed to be able to map that back to guess-edits.  but, in general, it's meant to be crowdsourced!  after all, we don't want to make assumptions on who DIDN'T guess who and have it give hints.

Ah. That part is missing on my mobile. I can barely see the 'enter username' and nothing below. Will check later from my laptop. :)

hahhahahah!!

no, no.  that's not what i meant.  this totally just happened to me:

- "oops.  i forgot to look at it on a mobile device.  raptori would be so sad!"
- *pulls up page on mobile*
- "oh hell!  where'd the rest of the form go?!?  the table just ends on the side!"
- *scrolls over to the right, then to bottom*
- "damn.  it's only whitespace down here!"
- *scrolls all the way to the left*
- "ah, there it is . . .  oooh!  since i didn't say what was actually on the form, xiagan might have assumed there was only the top form since it cuts off on the side and it's so wide."
- *posts dumb question*

Don't worry, I didn't assumed you did, just wanted to clarify. ;)

Since there is only one name per story (yet), that means that only one person has guessed, right?
I think it's not too much if I say that not ALL guesses are wrong. ;)

And i just entered my guesses for about half the stories.
I'll probably go back at least once.

Thanks, Chris! @m3mnoch.

or, that no two people guessed the same story . . .

as for mine, i had a couple that were 99% sure, a few that were 70% sure, and a whole passel that was 50% sure.  i would be completely flabbergasted if more than half of my 9 guesses turned out correct.

I would love it if you said flabbergasted in a conversation with your work colleagues.

I'm flabbergasted at your work or something like that hehe
