Realistically, I could probably lose anywhere from 30lbs to 60lbs depending on how well I do.
You have to be completely brain-dead if you are not aware that TW is suffering from financial difficulties. I saw the first thread after being gone for a couple days and figured I'd throw up and official thread in the hope TW gets some love. I've contributed in the past and would gladly do so again to help out a site I have enjoyed for over half a decade.

Please post here if you will commit to put up some cash for each pound Colosus loses from February 1st 2007 through July 1st 2007. I will compile a list in this first post of those that sign up to participate. Post what amount (in quarter increments) per pound you are willing to contribute.

Serious participants only, if you don't want to pay and would like to continue to leech from this site we really don't need to hear it.

How will this be verified?

Going to the hassle of exchanging addresses, writing a check, mailing the check, dealing with it arriving or not arriving and then having to process it, put it into a bank account and then transfer the funds to paypal so that all the TW money is separate from personal money... It's just a pain for $10.

i could see it gaining popularity if you asked for less per lb.

If that fat **** does something amazing nobody wants to be guilted into sending $100.

Do like $.50 a pound and people might do it, $.25 and people will be on it.

i would do 50cents or a quarter, but 1 dollar is too much for a man so fat

when you're "30-60 lbs " overweight, it isn't hard to drop 40 or so pounds in 6 months. tbh i don't want to contribute that much.

i'd rather wager half that much and add more at the end if i feel it is necessary

I'd do a full dollar a pound but less is always ok too, I mean I've been leeching for quite some time why not keep it up.

Admins could you replace the $1 in the title with just $ ? Taking away the $1 requirement will likely help and I should've just done that from the beginning ...

I'm down for 25 cents per pound. I'll do 50 cents a pound if he hits 40 or more.

And there must be before/after pics on a scale.

The other thread seemed like a joke at first, so I never even read it until this one came along. Therefore this thread does serve a purpose and I pledged in the other thread. I pledge $1/lb.
