Create a rule named “Contracts”:

A contractor may make a bid on a project with a status of “Posted” by sending a private message to the Great Eccentric stating the name of the project and an amount.

If it has been 24 hours or more since the last bid on a project with bids from more than one contractor, the Great Eccentric may “Award” a project by taking the following atomic action:
*Make a blog post stating the name of the project being awarded. This post is known as the project’s contract.
*In the contract state which contractor had the lowest bid. This is known as the project’s winner.
*List the amount of the second lowest bid. This is known as the project’s prize
*Resolve the resource ranges in the project’s estimation, and list this in the contract. This is known as the project’s cost.
*Change the status of the project to “contracted”

A contractor may Complete a contract by paying the project’s cost from their resources, changing the project’s status to finished, and increasing their funds by the contract’s prize minus $1B for every full 72 hours since the project was awarded.

i like not seeing the winner’s bid, adds some suspense.
What do you do if there’s a tie though?
