Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Peoples,
In the past we worked on the 24 hour limit though I suggest maybe that is excessive. any objections if we reduce it back to 12 or would 18 be fairer.

Reality is , as both Mark and zanshin have noted, this game needs to be run along speed dating lines or it all gets hopelessly bogged down.

Question ... if we decide that there is a time limit how do we choose next poster ? I'm happy to adjudicate if you wish, or perhaps more broadly any mod who happens to stumble by ..... yes that means you Fast me old mate. Alternatively as Zansin in the OP perhaps we leave it up to you ?

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

We need more, new players.. it's the same few participants who are running out of good pictures to post.. It's been great recently with DJL, Seaduction, Lawrence et al. but now I suspect they are running out too.

But I agree that it quickly grows stagnant if not 'fed'... 12 hours is probably fine given the variety of time zones we get to work with.

You telling me that your pic is not genuine ? Well I never. Some people simply cannot be trusted.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I believe the less rules the better, it should remain fun and challenging. But we do need to get this thread rolling along again.

Right now the thread is awaiting a new picture from either Fallard or Seaduction.

Not in the Bahamas. The picture was taken from the Atlantic ICW.
