Would like to, but depends on dates. Got a new baby coming early July so may not be able to commit.

SM has said they won't be organising this year, so someone else will need to take on that role.

Congrats. Just take a pic of the new one stick a warp effect on it and bingo! Next round

I'm down as a maybe to play. Not sure how busy I'm going to be, but for now I'd like to think I'll have the time.

As Al mentioned though, I would appreciate it if someone else would take on running the thing this year. It doesn't actually require much overseeing, you just need to do the draws and pester people when their shots are late or the wrong size. I just don't know if I can commit to doing it this year.



edit: the rules were slightly updated[1] last year, so for reference, here they are:

Quote
1. Each match will consist of two shots per player, except the final in which there are three 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 800 x 600, or 600 x 800 pixels in size, and must be still images.

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. In the event of a tie after the voting period has passed, the voting time will be extended by 12 hours, and if after that there is no winner, the next player to get a vote will win the tie.

5. Common sense prevails in image choice.

6. Pictures can be uploaded to places like imgur for those who have no webspace, but the picture must be displayed in the game thread.

7. In some cases it is necessary for one or more high-scoring losers to progress to the next round. High-scoring losers are simply those who get the most votes out of all the losing players in the round. If it comes down to two players who have the same number of votes, the player who lost by the smaller margin will progress as the high-scoring loser.

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. 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.
 1. Just to specify that the shots should be still images, so no one posts another gif, and to clarify the high-scoring loser rule.

Considering the insane amount of quality that has come out of the CaB extended universe with Farage, Ron, the dog, carrier bag man and cooked breakfast man, I can imagine Wimblewrong being even more exceptional than before.

If no one else wants to administer WimbleWrong this year I'd be willing to step in.

I promise not to use this position of power to right the wrongs of the past.
