WimbleWrong is a grueling 24/7 competition.

First off... a reminder of the rules:

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.

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 imgur 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. 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.

Yeah chances are I'm going to need a one day extension on this, sorry. Just got back from a day festival and am totally drained, and I have plans tomorrow evening. Am I allowed to get something done by Tuesday night, please?

Seeing as there's only 16 players this year really I'm doing you all a favour by dragging the thing out a bit.

well, if hamfist is happy to sit twiddling fingers for an extra day... if you haven't already can you PM your opponent and let them know the situation?

Will the “last shot fired” announcements be posted in here also? Makes it easier than tracking a load of different WimbleWrong threads.

Sploff, I just noticed you're not playing this year, how come?
The only reason I signed up was for the prospect of possibly beating playing you again.
It's like going to a party and the one person you were hoping to see doesn't turn up.
I'm miffed.

Well I felt I needed a break from playing. I thought I did my best work last year and wouldn't be up to matching it... so by skipping a year I am attempting to put off the inevitable decline that will see me soon enough getting regularly knocked out in the first round by the CAB equivalent of Doncaster Rovers.

Also... after Bruce in 2017, and a Chuckle Brother in 2018, I didn't want the death of another celebrity at the alter of WimbleWrong weighing on my conscience.

Finally I've noticed that when it gets to the final the voters on WimbleWrong haven't got a f*king clue.

Anyway, I thought I'd try to administer this year as SelectiveMemory wasn't after doing the job (hope that's temporary btw). Still finding my feet, so sorry if I came across like a bit of a a-hole in your first round match.

It seems to be tradition that there's a WimbleWrong voting thread in General BS, just keep on eye on that one.

What you described is the Desolation Quest SOP. I do that because I'm reluctant to 'clog up' General BS with any more H.S.art stuff than necessary. You know how some of those cunts  kind hearted, good people feel about that.

Not at all.
You probably make a better host than a contestant!
Keep at it.

Sorry, just practicing my backhand (-ed compliments).

And apologies for continuing to ignore your ruling on the exact amount of pixels deemed legal.
I will never change.
