I want something to win a claim. But I participate in an activity which both leads this thing toward victory, and puts it at risk for never being able to win.

Is this activity a hobby? Something you are required to do? Something most people are required to do? A common activity?

Claim - about facts? About skills? A bet?

Is a claim a civil claim in court? Or just a spoken claim not connected with law at all?

NOTE: It seems that this claim has been won. Hurray!

However, there is a slightly greater claim that relies on one small exception that I had to make in the first claim. Unfortunately, I don't see this claim being won anytime soon.

I will continue to answer questions as they pertain to the original claim.

Are you hoping to run a puzzle longer than my LatVenture...which needs to be paid attention to, I know, I know, lol...:-D I'll get back to it, once my mind settles on it instead of coming up with new stuff :-) this is the difference between the two claims; the original claim treats Lateral Adventures as an exception while the new one does not.

My original goal was to have the longest puzzle (except LA's) that is ______ ______. Fill in the blanks and this will be $poiled.

Promote it - by answering the questions quickly? But that puts it at risk by supplying more information which could be solved?

Longest puzzle...that is Not A Woubit Christmas Puzzle? Or A Lateral Adventure?

Longest puzzle...that is Not A Woubit Christmas Puzzle? it's LONGER than the Christmas puzzle currently Or A Lateral Adventure? This is already part of the rule.

Think about it. Wouldn't it be hard to check all of the puzzles on the forum to see if any are longer?

my lateral adventure relevant? yes, but this is no longer necessary to solve the puzzle; you're now looking for the action I take that "both leads this thing toward victory, and puts it at risk for never being able to win."

RECAP:

I have waited for my rulebreaker "Paradox" to become the longest (in terms of post count) on the Active page. But by posting, I have done something that has both furthered the goal and added a danger that it would never be reached. This involves something I have posted in my threads, and this puzzle will become relevant once it is solved, for hopefully obvious reasons.

But make it easier for us to solve it? no, you asked earlier "Does the action involve answering questions? noish" ... sigh ... if this puzzle will become relevant once it is solved, what does that say about the action?

Say "check out me cool new puzzle this is the gist of it oh my wonderful bffs here at the ltpf forum which is redundant like atm machine or pin number but who cares?

But fkist I will ask qnother question which is am I rioght?

**********SPOILER**********

This puzzle has gotten a bit complicated, so let's review the statement.

I want something to win a claim. But I participate in an activity which both leads this thing toward victory, and puts it at risk for never being able to win.

The "something" is my Paradox rulebreaker, which at one point was the longest currently running puzzle on the forum as far as post count. The "activity" is advertising the rulebreaker in the spoilers of other puzzles, which encourages more people to post and increase the post count, but also makes it more likely to be solved sooner.

Great job, everybody. I'm posting another Lateral Adventure sometime soon ... be ready ...
