    It would be cool (in the future) if the guesses could be averaged, a la The Wisdom of Crowds.

    Just like with guessing how many gumballs in a jar, maybe one or two will guess better than the average, but we won't know who those best guessers are.

    The average of all guesses will yield a better answer and be more informative than the vast majority of individual guesses.

    (Obviously this result may be skewed as we're all DKers, but it will still be a superior predictor and hold more authority than any one person.)
