In early December 2009, we posted a contest to the blog, with the challenge being to predict the date that scene # 50,000 would arrive at VideoBox. The original article can be found here. The very next update to the site (just minutes away) will push us over 49,000 scenes (includes premium channel scenes). A VideoBox mug and a free one year membership await the winner. Let’s see if we can zero in on the expected winning date, and separate the contenders from the pretenders.
As of 5:00 AM Pacific Time on 12/31/09 VideoBox had 44,184 scenes uploaded. As of 5:00 AM Pacific Time on 05/25/10 VideoBox had 48,988 scenes uploaded. So in the space of 145 days, 4814 scenes were added to the site. That is an average of 33.2 scenes per day*. Using the 5/25/10 morning total as a starting point, 1012 scenes need to be added to reach 50,000. At 33.2 scenes per day, this equates to 30.48 days. Let’s call it 30 1/2 days. If these averages hold up, scene # 50,000 will arrive on the evening of 06/24/10. Of course, there is no guarantee the averages will hold exactly. But I can’t foresee a huge deviation from the norm. Certainly not more than a couple of days, one way or the other.
So who are the main contenders?
June 12, 2010 – Hanacoco
June 20, 2010 – polksalad1
June 29, 2010 – mitchrocn22
Hanacoco controls eight days from 6/12 thru 6/19. He needs the updates to arrive quicker than expected. Hanacoco is hoping for lots of handjob and blowjob movies, and no doubling up or tripling up of the scenes. If there are fifteen handjobs on a DVD, Hanacoco wants fifteen separate scenes. Not five scenes with three handjobs apiece.
polksalad1 controls nine days from 6/20 thru 6/28. He appears to be in the drivers seat. polksalad1 wants the updates to arrive at the same rate as they have been over the past several months. No quicker, no slower.
mitchrocn22 controls four days from 6/29 thru 7/2. He needs the updates to arrive slower than expected. mitchrocn22 is hoping for lots of gangbang movies with just one or two scenes.
I believe the winner will come from the above three members. The remaining submissions will need a heavy dose of luck to claw their way back into contention. It should be a great deal of fun as scene # 50,000 comes closer and closer into view. My thanks to everyone in the membership who participated in the contest.
* – Everything else being equal, Tuesdays will have about five scenes less than all other days. Because there is no premium channel update on Tuesdays.
