Wimblemong 2010! Draws and rules
« on: June 15, 2010, 12:38:50 AM »
The lots have been drawn…

SMBH v The Region Legion
The Boston Crab v dredd
copylight v AsparagusTrevor
Old Thrashbarg v gmoney
ziggy v Big Jack McBastard
biniput v Rowlands
nagsworth v Phil_A
wasp v Kishi
alcoholic messiah v Miles
micanio v Mr_Simnock
An tSaoi v Delete
fanny splendid v Fawwaz
Fry v actwithoutwords
Zero Gravitas v chocky
Mythical Wet Patch v Jemble
DocDaneeka v Cerys


If your name is first in your match title, you serve.

As Derek Trucks and  ziggy starbucks once wisely said:

Quote
A quick reminder of the rules:

1. Each match will consist of two shots per player.
2. The player with the opening shot (i.e. the server) can put what they want in their picture.  But all subsequent pictures (i.e the return) must contain, either visually or conceptually, an element of the previous picture.
3. The pictures will be 600 x 400, or 400 x 600 pixels in size.
4. Voting will take place by posting the name of your favourite in the game thread immediately after play has ended (i.e. when the 4th picture of each match has been posted).  The voting will last for 48 hours.
5. Common sense prevails in image choice.
6. Pictures can be uploaded to places like photobucket.com for those who have no webspace, but the picture must be displayed in the game thread.

And a reminder of time permitted:  You have 72 hours to post an image from when the round starts or from when the last shot has been posted.  So for you servers in this round, you need to post your picture by midnight Frida [ed – oh no wait, it actually is midnight Friday!].  Keep a look out on your game for when your opponent posts their shot, as it's from that time that the 72 hours start. 

Servers, when you post your first shot start a new topic entitled:

Wimblemong 2010 – Round 1 – NameA v NameB

If anyone has reason for needing extra time, say so in the thread, but of course vous devriez ne take pas le pisse, as the French probably don’t say.

I hope we all have fun.

GO!

You've got almost a week before you even need to consider it.

I hope you used real yarrow for the draw kishi.

I dunno, the Sign-up thread indicates that it starts "tuesday" which sounds an awful lot like today, to be honest! Also it wouldn't be fair on the people who aren't serving if the draw was done over a week before it started, as the opening server would have way too long to conjur up an awesome opening shot.

So... 72 hours from today, is it?

GO!

Can we have a reserve list of people who could replace contestants who fail to post within the required timeframe and are therefore disqualified?

So seriously, what's the deadline?

Re: Wimblemong 2010! Draws and rules
« Reply #12 on: June 15, 2010, 01:56:48 PM »
72 hours ÷ 24 hours  = 3 days. You've got today, tomorrow, Thursday.

Apologies, bad phrasing on my part. When I say midnight Friday, I mean as in 0.38 Friday, thirty-eight minutes after the end of Thursday. I'm sorry if I did this too soon, you did seem to be jonesing for it nagsy!

A reserve list is a good idea. So we've got Artemis, and anyone else who would like to be.

Argh, just when I thought I was unconfused I've become reconfused. What's the new deadline? I must have dyscalculia or something.

There's no new deadline. It's 00.38, early in the hours of Friday morning.

Oh no! Waspface and Frycock have less than an hour to do something!

Does failure to do so mean the other person goes through by default?

Not only could you have simply quoted that and saved my poor browser the strain of yet another tab (source image bonanza up in dis piece) but you also posted that at 11:11:11. mook would surely agree, something is a-fucking-foot here.

I'm not sure why, but I did think it would be mildly amusing to provide a link rather than a quote. Firstly, the new tab/window (some people still use IE6!) would be a little bit annoying anyway, even more so when the link turned out to be back to this thread. Secondly, it adds a little bit of suspense/the element of surprise, particularly for those foolish enough to not check a URL's location, which would lead to disappointment when it turned out to be nothing more than a post from further up the page.

As for the 11:11:11 thing: the effect is lost on us 24-hour motherfuckers.

I want to see a LIVE Draw for the next round, whether or not I'm involved.

I don't doubt the credibility of the draw in the slightest. I just want to see a LIVE Draw.

Kishi, do you have 16 ping pong balls and a wide-brimmed hat?
