Pin the vote on the Baker

How well do you know your fellow 'bakers?
  [vote for,

The game could take many forms, but I see the simplest being an online adjunct to the halfbakery itself.

One (two's better) or more players log on to the game and select a number of turns to play. They are then presented with a series of halfbakery ideas (with at least one positive and one negative vote), the name of a halfbaker who voted on the idea and set of radio button controls for each player.

As each idea/user combination is displayed, each player chooses whether they think the user voted for or against the idea. The winner is the player who guesses right most often.

(An alternative form of this idea would be to implement [PotatoStew]'s "Name That 'Baker" idea in a similar fashion.)

       So you can only judge those who have annotated an idea or any damn baker you wish?

       I pick me. And I think I voted for Exhaust Sock.   

       I think I'm winning. : )

       No, an idea would be displayed along with the halfbakery user name of a halfbakery user that voted on the idea. The players try to decide whether the halfbakery user voted for or against the idea, based on how well they know the user.   

       I'd leave annotations out (unless they were anonymous) because some people disclose their votes.

       Do you have the ability to see who voted for what idea, [phoenix]? <shudders> Now I have to unvote for all of my own ideas... </s>

       Guess who gave you the fishbone. (Enough navel gazing and second guessing goes on around here already.)   

       And re: the link, DrBob and I switched bodies for a week, and no one came close to noticing, despite our very distinct styles.

       DC: there's no guessing about that.
