I start forming a task list.

Muddytaco

Its need to be a shorter time frame then usual, people lose interest and it dies off.

I would say 2 weeks is enough to do what will get done, after that it seems like it trails off with only a few entrys.

I would also vote in favor of having the point value drop as time goes on, this will push everybody to get the tasks done quickly.

Marv has a good idea...

If you are wanting to play, please list when school starts back for you (if it does) or any obligations that you may have this summer that would prevent you from playing.

pb34
06-11-2008, 03:17 PM
I think school starts back for me September 1st or right around there. I should be around most of the summer so I'm in for sure!

DFSniper
06-11-2008, 03:20 PM
i work 7 to 4 5-6 days a week, so we can't have it any time between then :dodgy:

i think school starts the second week of august, but i'll have to double check...

I'm in if I've got time around work. We're fighting some pretty serious network issues right now though and have to work all hours of the night, so we should wait a few weeks.

shunut
06-11-2008, 05:10 PM
Slow down, there are only 8 people so far and the thread was just started today. Lets give it a couple days to see if anybody else wants to join.

I'll start a list on the first post of people who want to play.

I'll be a judge but we need a couple more, mods. Taco do you want to play or judge?

Once we have the judges lined up, we'll get the rules together for you guys. They will probably be pretty similar to last years.

I don't know how to do this but count me in. School starts sometime in August and I work most of the weekdays, just depends if I can work at home or if I have to go in.

Alright guys time to break up into teams. I will try to have them posted by the end of the day.

shunut
06-17-2008, 10:52 AM
TEAMS HAVE BEEN POSTED!!!

Go to the first post to see what team you are on.

You guys should probably talk to your teammates and come up with your team name. Once your team has agreed on a name PM it to me so we can approve it. DO NOT POST YOUR TEAM NAME UNTIL IT HAS BEEN APPROVED BY THE JUDGES. Even if its "The Care Bears".

DFSniper
06-17-2008, 11:03 AM
so how do we want to do this? PM tag could get a little old after a while... im on AIM/Yahoo/MSN almost all day, so if you guys want, we can arrange a time to all get online and vote on names.

Paradox313
06-17-2008, 11:11 AM
Yeah, I really don't care what our teamname is, it's a name.

Just PM me when you've guys came up with something, I don't have AIM, only MSN.

HelpDeskHustler
06-22-2008, 04:22 PM
I'm sorry. It's taking some time compiling a list that is unique and doesn't suck and is legal. I'll have it soon. I assure you this is the longest, most detailed task list for ANY online scavenger hunt. That includes PBN:ST's Legends of the Hidden Temple. BTW whichever mod wants it should PM me an Email to send it to, or I'll just send it in like 6-7 PM's. Just let me know who needs it for review. I'll probably make the full thread and copy pasta the rules as soon as I get the go, then you guys can add the stuff that's needed.

DFSniper
06-22-2008, 04:48 PM
anyone come up with a team name yet? all i can think of are stupid ones, and i havent heard from anyone else.

HelpDeskHustler
06-22-2008, 05:03 PM
Names must all have an animal(real or imaginary) mascot.
Names must have at least one describing adjective, no more than 3.
Names may not be associated with an insult.
Names must be appropriate for a family forum and for public exposure, as Names may be used in public in some of the tasks.
The animal which is described by the name must not be longer than 10 letters or shorter than 5 so that we can keep some tasks as fair as possible.

Those are my only guidelines. Obey them or people will cry over some of the tasks.
Example: "what do you mean I have to have my mom say 'peeing elephants'!? That's unfair"

Mongooses doesn't work... it's like calling geese, gooses.

Hey guys, I really don't think I'll have this list finished in a long time. I'm really wrapped up in a bunch of stuff and its hard to think of anything worthwhile. I can't imagine that I'll have any free time for at least 3 weeks. I just have a lot on my plate with college this august, work right now, and having to adjust so I can visit my grandpa in Florida, who was recently diagnosed with liver cancer. If you guys can wait a month I'll get you up and running, but I just don't see it happening any time soon.

Girlfriends aren't always fun anyway. You have to deal with all their emotional crap most of the time.

Aren't you married? Haha.

I've been through plenty of relationships. Can't say it's ever easy when one ends. There have only been a couple that have ended mutually. The others ended in heart break or me getting used. It's never fun, so I feel ya.

But on a positive note, come the 3rd of July, it will be my girlfriend and my 1 year anniversary. :) Longest relationship for both of us. We've come a long way.

If you're not meant to be together, then you wont be. If you are, things will turn out good and you'll get back together. But for now, hang out with friends. Get out and play some paintball. Play videogames! Just relax and get your mind off of things. I find friends are the best for picking your spirits up.
