Thanks for the win SusieQ, well maybe thanks.

Post away my fellow ... er something.

The Last Person To Post Here Wins Thread, general rules:

1. Winner of the last thread starts the new one with a post of these rules.
2. Chooses a future event which triggers the winner, e.g. post number, date-time, and records it privately somehow (yellow sticky, etc.)
3. Everyone has fun posting until the target event is reached.
4. When the target is reached, old winner posts declaration of new winner and also PMs them.
5. Shortly after this a Mod will lock the recently won thread (use the red cross to notify them)*
6. Go to 1.


*if there is a mod around

Congratulations on the win Mr Charpentier.

Sigh, my greatest fear has happened. Keeping a sticky somewhere and remembering not to throw it out!
- you could always get a tattoo, or paint it on the wall, or write it in permanent marker on a whiteboard or window, or .... Well, you get the idea :-D

Tattoos are a bit of a one-shot solution. I find the post-it a sensible solution, provided I recall where I put the thing...

There's so few of us posting these days, we may need a more long-lasting reminder mechanism :-) I can remember ending one thread last year after 366 posts - it would take quite a while to reach that given the recent post rate :-(

Nobody will win because if they post they didn't read the rules and you can never stop reading the rules since rule #6 says goto rule #1... ;)

Not sure where you are in Sweden Tut, but I hope no-one you know was personally affected by yesterday's events.

Last post two days ago. At this rate it will be New Years. ;-)

Looking back I see #9 was my first one here. Want to be afraid, #7 had 1000+ posts!
