Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board & Alumni,

À la Board Question #83880, how many "I'm Board!" clicks does it take for one of your answers to pop up?

-Susan Bones

A:

Dear Susan Bones,

130. In that time, I ran across not one, not two, but FOUR answers by my sister who wrote for about a day in 2010.

And the answer of mine I finally landed on was really lame. Oh Board, why do you hate me?

- The Black Sheep

A:

Dear Several Bones,

27.

-Pleasantly Surprised Insomniac

A:

DEAR SUSAN,

I HATE YOUR STUPID QUESTION. 

740 CLICKS AND CRAZY EYE FATIGUE LATER I FINALLY HAVE THE STUPID ANSWER.

I HOPE YOU'RE HAPPY.

-MADELAIDE

A:

Dear you,

Two. I got lucky.

-Squirrel

A:

Dear Susan, 

20. Not too shabby!

-Ms.O'Malley

A:

Dear Human,

243. 

Sincerely,
The Soulful Ginger 

A:

Dear Suzy,

Wow, the first click! That was pretty cool. I tried it again and I was in the 30s when my wife yelled at me to go to bed, so ciao. Maybe I'll see you all next year.

Dr. Smeed

A:

Dear Suzy

BAM! One and done.

-Humble Master

A:

Dear Miss Bones,

Only 125! Which is good, even though I decided to try this in hopes that I could put off my Econ homework for a couple more hours.

-the Goose Girl

A:

Dear Susan Bones,

24.

--Maven

A:

Dear Susan Bones,

5 and the answer I landed on was one about injuring myself with my own toenails. Good times.

- Katya

P.S. May I compliment you on using the correct accent for "à la"? It does my French major heart good.

A:

Dear,

3. It wasn't an answer writing home about, though.

-Uffish Thought

A:

Dear Mort,

96. Unfortunately, my grandmother has since acquired a new couch that is slightly less comfortable.

-Azriel

A:

Dear Susan Bones-

99. I was going to be sad if it went into triple digits, but the Spirit of the Board delivered.

-Foreman

A:

Dear Susan ~

61. And it was about Twilight vs. Harry Potter. Really? Susan Bones, you of all people should know the easy answer to that.

~ Dragon Lady

A:

Dear Susan,

It took me 110. I would not enjoy flying from Nome to Sydney. 

I sure hope this helps. Please don't hate me. 

- Brutus 

A:

Dear Bones,

Out of boredom, I did this again, and did relatively better: it only took 118 clicks this time. 

Sadly, BYU's football season kept going downhill after that. Also, they raised the price of Hawaiian burgers at the Wall. Sad times all around.

-Frère Rubik

A:

Dearest Paprika,

61. And I'm very happy to say we got rid of the incompetent coworker! Though, the new person, who is now my boss, is having issues (mostly he doesn't care, so he ignores everything he's asked to do). Yesterday I was asked if I had any examples of things he ignored for so long that his boss had to take care of the issue. Because I document, I was able to provide that information. 

This is a good reminder for everyone to document issues as they may be important later!

-Marguerite St. Just

A:

Dear Susan,

100. And I'm still proud of that answer.

-Cognoscente

A:

Dear Strong Bad,

Thirty-six. I also don't actually remember writing that answer.

-yayfulness

A:

Dear Susan,

Your question put me through a serious existential crisis. But, fortunately, after 213 clicks, I am certain that I exist. Unfortunately, it was one of the questions of which I am most ashamed. Early in board writing, I took the easy way out and called my mom instead of calling Sugar N Spice for a recipe. Thanks to Waldorf and Sauron for a lesson about doing the right job well and not just a sorta-okay job that I reflect on more often than you'd think I would. Seriously, you guys are the best and I've always looked up to your answers.

Woah, that got a little mushy. Uh, 213 clicks. Yep.

-The Man with a Mustache

A:

Dear Hufflepuffle,

It took me 14. Also, my prediction in that answer was almost exactly right.

-=Optimus Prime=-

A:

Dear trivia answer that Stargirl wasn't fooled by,

36, and it was a reunion answer! How fun.

--Gimgimno

A:

Dear Susan Bones,

One. Awesome. Now I have the urge to play video games for the rest of the day.

-Sky Bones

A:

Dear Susan,

Still clicking...

-Sunday Night Banter

A:

Dear Aunt Sue,

Ok, I've been bored at work before and clicked the "I'm Board!" button hundreds of times and never come up with an answer of my own. I decided I would try again for this question. I started clicking in preparation for the long haul like Adelaide above... 

20 clicks. That's all it took. I'm so happy right now. I almost want to try again but I'm afraid I won't find another one for a really, really, really long time. 

I think that was one of the answers I did the first week I started writing, too, so that's cool.

-Spectre

A:

Dear Susan Bones,

441, give or take about 50 because I lost count. A lot. Mostly because I kept having to read interesting questions I came across.

-The Skipper

A:

Dear Susan Bones, 

39.  I was sort of expecting it would have been lower than that, but then I read everyone else's answers and I'm more proud of mine.

The second time I got 35.  The third time I got 40.  It's actually sort of addictive.  I kept wanting to beat my score. 

- Lavish

A:

Dear Doctor,

I'm supposed to be staying up to remove permissions, so I thought I'd try.

Eight. That wasn't bad at all.

And then thirteen.

I think the odds were just in my favor tonight.

-Tally M.

A:

Dear Suzie (kind of...),

No, Tally, it's not luck. You just have 2026 FLIPPIN' ANSWERS! You're 8th for sheer volume of responses in the history of the Board. 

Sorry, just had to rejoice with you a bit.

67 clicks for what? Rice and beans?!

Meh, it could've been worse. 

Cheers,

The Lone Musketeer

A:

Dear Terrible Person,

I gave up at 500.

Also, after staring at the "I'm Board!" button for so long, I'm convinced that 'Board' is no longer a word.

I hate you.

-April Ludgate

A:

Dear you,

56. Much better than I expected.

Love,

Luciana
