READ BEFORE POSTING IN THE INVISIBLES CLUES THREADS

#1 Post by Batman » 28 Feb 2005, 02:17

There are no written rules governing the issuance of clues for the weekly Invisibles contest. However, there are some unwritten ones. This is kind of a self-policing joint so no one is going to be banned from doing whatever they feel like doing, but as in the rest of society just because no one says you can't do something is no reason to do it. The basic "rules" I've seen in the year or so I've been around is as follows:

Mondays and Tuesdays are for self-congratulatory pats on the back or bewailing your own lack of film knowledge.

Wednesdays is the unwritten day of first clues, but remember: some people would like clues but still want to have a feeling of self-worth, so make them pretty cryptic so as not to give the game away too soon.

Thursdays and Fridays the clues can become a little more obvious, but still try and be clever.

Saturdays are reserved for incredibly blatant clues.

Sundays are for posting clues for people that are not only too impatient to wait a day, but also admit they couldn't get the answer from the previous week's worth of clues. Feel free to use plenty of sarcasm in these clues.

Batman: "Oh yes, Robin. Several things, in fact."

Thanks for the stickification, Snotty. Although the FAQ would be good, it's only effective if people read it.

Great thinking, even though I think that FREE BEER AND LOTS OF BOOBS, might get a better result.

OK. We'll compromise:

It's a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham. I move for a mistrial.

Excellent idea, Batman. Let's hope people abide by the guidelines.

Saying that, I'm crap at cryptic clues ... :(
Statler: Well, how do you like the film?
Waldorf: I've seen detergents leave a better film than this.

If you wake up at a different time in a different place could you wake up as a different person?
