Speaking of contests, I was digging through my archives last night looking for something and I ran across this drawing by Blinker for a hideous contest I ran to promote my old website in 2003. The PIE fetish remains but I find that my loathing of Carrot Top has cooled over the years.

:puke:

Or maybe not.

Am I a little late to say it? Well if theres still time I'm in.

Does the 3/4 hours on the day mean internet connection though? I might have some problems staying on the internet for that long but I will try my best :)

I break up on the 22nd of December and go back on the 8th Janouayr, but I think i'm alright if the competition starts beofre I break up, I can find time around my homework and stuff :)

Moist excellent. Glad to have you aboard!

No, if an entry will take very long for you to do it won't be the kind of thing that you need a steady connection for.

Last call for signups! When next I return to this thread it will be to close out the signing up.

In the meantime, how is next week looking for everybody? I can do Tuesday, Wed, Thursday, Friday, or Sat for the first task. If you won't have an hour to commit to this on one of those days speak now or forever hold your PIEce - er - peace. The way this will work is that everyone will have from midnight until midnight to complete their task, you can submit your entry any time during that 24 period. So basically you'll just need an hour or so during that particular day.

Do the judges need to be around at these times as well? My schedule is more than flexible, I'm just wondering.

Also, is there judging criteria I should keep in mind, or am I allowed to just say "because I said so?"

Am I getting ahead of myself?

I'll PM you and the other judges the necessary info when we get closer to it, but I can tell you now that the judges are always needed the day AFTER the contest day because you'll judge the stuff after everyone has made their entry. I'll clear you judges' schedules after I've figured out the best couple days to try and do this big ole nasty thang. :P

Come on in, the water's fine!

As soon as I nail down our last judge we'll have to close the signups and get down to bidness though. :P

IMericka has announced herself as one of the judges. I will allow the other three judges (besides myself) decide whether or not they wish to remain annoymous.

Based on what people said above, the First Task will take place next Wed, December 13th. If anyone has a conflict with that day, speak now or forever hold your PIE. Judges, this means we'll need you to be available sometime on Thursday, December 14th.

Check out the First Task post for your clues and other info.

Congratulations and good luck to all participants! I'll be watching from the sidelines who gets to be next Champ. May the best man win, even if the winner should be missing the proper anatomical requirements for that statement.

Have fun. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Actually, wednesday is bad for me. I'm good for that Friday through Sunday, though. If moving the day would be problematic, I'll opt out. No problems.

I don't see a problem with continuing to let people join as long as it doesn't throw our scheduling the first task out of whack.

No, I picked Wed at random from the days nobody had a problem. What does Friday look like for everyone? Keep in mind that you'll have 24 hours, from midnight to midnight, and your entry should take about an hour, two at the most if you want to take your time with it.

Ouch. If Cerina's in the game, I'm lucky to finish in the top 5. Last time she came second by just few points behind comrade Winchiemovitch. She's gooood. In a "bad" sort of way.

I thought something was missing about this place.

So like, good luck people. You're gonna need it, I'm a judge. Mwahahaha! Bribing is definitely in style, I like shiny things and chocolate things.
