The 'Infinity' Game:Add 1, then say a username.

Hello Everybody,

This is a infinity game and the interest of it is in the 'Infinity'.
Anybody knows the limit of this game?take"Add 1, then say a username"as an example.
(Because the spam filter don't let me send links,I should post the rules here.Sorry for the inconvenience.
So, if it is a multiple of 3, say bobbym.
If multiple of 5, say anonimnystefy.
If multiple of 7, say n872yt3r.
If multiple of 11, say Agnishom.
If a multiple of 13, say Nehushtan if you are a boy.
If a girl, say mathgogocart.

Example :
1
2
bobbym
4
anonimnystefy
6
n872yt3r
8
9
10
Agnishom
12
Nehushtan)
So,How can I calculate the final limit(means that everybody need to speak a username)?

Hi auyeungyat;

I am not following you. What is the question?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

What limit? We only have 185000 members?

I mean that the limit that the members who played that game must post member name's after how much posts?

Let's see if I can understand what you want. Do you just want to use those 6 members names?

What name would you use for 14?

Re: The 'Infinity' Game:Add 1, then say a username.

So what you are asking is what name would be for infinity?

No.I am talking that at somewhere near infinity…(like that: )

You will have to be more precise than that. Infinity is not a number.

Re: The 'Infinity' Game:Add 1, then say a username.

How about if we redo the rules.  Start at 2, the first prime number.  Choose a username for the #2.
The next poster will use the next counting number and if the number is a prime number then they
choose a username for it, but if the number is a composite number like 4 or 6, then they post all the
prime names that multiply to get that number 4 or 6, e.g.  Does that sound fun??

Hi John;

Two different things. The OP wanted a definite answer, which is not possible to provide.
