Apparently some rich guy came on /v/ and let people vote on who he gives $50k too, and /v/ voted for Toady. Then this screenshot was posted...

Any idea if it's true?

We will see when ToadyOne says something about it. Or at the end of the month.

I'm super curious what crayon picture he requested.

I bet a picture of ToadyOne saying "no" to Notch. /V/ seems to want ToadyOne not to be Notch.

The $50k pic may have been off by 1 pixel from what it should have been.

Without seeing an actual receipt to compare it to, that could also be a CSS issue.  If the element for the second $50,000 was placed higher on z level and explicitly has a white background, it can cut off low hanging bits of a font in another element behind it.

So what?  I'm only like a day old in DF time, but I can tell you that 'might' pay a quarter year's worth expenses while T is developing full time.  I hope he did get it. :)

It doesn't seem legit, but there's always a small hope :P

Yeah, it's pretty doubtful. The guy probably just wanted to see if people would argue about who gets it, or see if it gets tons of attention.

Though a one pixel oddity doesn't really seem that significant.

It's always significant. You can tell by the pixels.

It is a bit weird, looking at the other commas. I guess checking for photoshopping it a bit like trying to pixel a face from a crowd.

It's always significant. You can tell by the pixels.

Except, as I said, it could also be a minor issue with the CSS, especially given the rather short line height being used for the two values.

It would also be easier to simply copy the source from an actual receipt and mock it up locally and just take a screenshot than trying to photoshop one without leaving more evidence than that behind.
