Not this year, I'm afraid. The dirty crown is up for grabs.

As of last year at least:

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.

I will take Crabwalk's failure to enter this year as admission that I was in fact the true winner of WimbleWrong 2018.

Can I be in if I don't have Photoshop? I stopped my direct debit when they tried to charge me £150 to get out of a yearly contract I didn't realised I signed up to and am scared to log in now. Can I do it through collague or mosaic or interpretive dance or something? If so I am in.

Gimp is still a good free alternative to photoshop isn’t it? But yeah there’s no rules against what software you use as long as it’s in image format.

Alrighty... I'm going to be running Wimblewrong this year. Rest assured I will show no bias against any competitors I may have had run ins with in the past. It will all be fair and above board.

If no one objects I'll put out the official call to arms thread in GBS this Thursday.

Many thanks,
Your new WimbleWrong Administrator: Spoon Of Ploff

When will this be? I’m travelling without access to a pc and will be annihilated if I’m just using the crappy image editor on my iPad. I’ll be annihilated anyway, but I’d like it to be a (quasi) fair fight.

I'll take this one Mr kittens if I may...

If the WimbleWrong post goes up in General BS tomorrow. We'll be looking to kick off round 1 a week later.. say 4th July. I don't think that date has any significance for anyone does it?

Oh right, I’m not back until the end of August so I will have to respectfully bow out this time.
