It is "A" mud. One of the bigger ones.

Yeah some of it would have been, I used to have a script set up to 'look' every minute or something to prevent a logout :lol:

Yeah I'm pretty sure that Materia Magica didn't do much for my school/work at the time, but it was good fun.

Maybe we should look at a rule where if no-one guesses the screenshot in 24 or 48 hours someone else can post a new one?

I think after 24 hours, the poster gives a hint. After 48, the poster posts a new picture. Pretty sure that was the rules at GON anyway. Happy for suggestions otherwise though.

I think that was unofficial rules that were never stated, but we tried to adhere to them...
Come on Nitephyre... I haven't arrived at this thread early enough to guess any that I knew so far, I'm online now and have a chance :D

Yeah, sorry, I did mean to say "rules" as I also thought they were unofficial but seemed to work. So I guess if it works why not stick to it? :)
I'm in the same boat, waiting for one I know to guess.

Do we also have a rule that if nothing is posted by the last winner within 24 hours that anyone can take over?
Just to keep things rolling along?

Mearehear - is it possible to update the original post to reflect some unofficial rules that we can attempt to follow?

Yeah I guess so. Could always say the person with the previous picture can select a new person? That way everyone doesn't just post a picture. Up to everyone else really.

Will do. Feel free to PM me any agreed rule changes if I don't happen to notice them, and I will update the opening post. I'll add that 24/48hr thing now, as that seems fair.

EDIT - added the following to the opening post. Tell me if anything needs changing.

* If the game hasn't been successfully guessed after 24 hours, the poster gives a hint. After 48 hours, the poster posts a new picture.
* Googling an image is frowned upon. Bad Karma dude.
* If the correct guesser hasn't provided a new image within 24hrs, the previous image poster may provide a new game.

Only thing, with the third rule... should it be the previous image poster, or just who ever looks at the thread first?
That way it won't be on the same person to post another game.

Whatever you guys want to agree upon,mate. I'm happy to change it to anything. I will update it to that for now :)

EDIT: and done :)
