    Are people going to be allowed their instruments?

    Should there be nominations on who ISN'T allowed?

    I think what ever the challenges end up being, they ought to be sent by a pm to the contestants and they ought not divulge them.

    For instance, if a challenge was "create a post that will attract a response from at least one person from every ranking (Newbie, Senior Member, etc...)" or "create a post the that will attract a response from at least one person from 5 different countries" wouldn't be half as challenging if the tMP members new the challengers or the contestants said what they challenge wasin their post.

    The "experts" will correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure just being logged on wouldn't be enough for a user name to register right through the night; I think it depends on some sort of user activity over a period.

    Yes that's right Peter...
    It times out after 5 minutes I think... so if anyone wanted to do the 'leave pc on all night' thing, you'll need to do the Homer Simpson style birdy to keep on pushing the F5 button... (if you've seen the episode, you'll know what I'm on about! :lol: )

    Dodgy Suggestions:

    1) Get the housemates to find something on ebay to bid for...

    ... and if they win the bid they have to sell it on tmp.

    2) Get the house mates to write a review of <whatever--enter title here> for the reviews thread.

    3) They have to visit all the sites on the banners on tmp and if there are guestbooks sign them (post up urls of pages so we can see)

    4) PM <enter amount-- so-many> tMP users and get replies... (then post the messages up so we can see what you and they put)

    5) post something useful in each and every forum page in or under 30mins...(cut the time down if you think 30mins is too easy ;-))

    6) Enter tMP composers comp

    :bounce :dunno :terrier

    Get Mr Payne to set an anagram quiz and give them a set amount of time for completion (or as many as they can)

    Get them to post a photo of the most unsual place for a brass instrument
    (clean only please!)

    I already nominate WhatSharp for the first forfeit as he can't spell my surname right, despite the fact it's on my signature! :twisted: :lol:

    Only joking, Mr B*ggers, Bruges, or whatever your name is! ;-)

    How about a 'forfeitee' writing lines, or something. Such as ''Write 'I love the Floral Dance'' 500 times!

    OOOPs many many many apologies.... you'll make me suffer for that on the 12th I bet..... "OK how many Sop solos have we got?" :(

    actually another challenge could be an on-line band!, armed with Roger Wilco or MSN with audio and a microphone! .......

    That's a bit too easy Dave, especially when 'cut and paste' can be used! Plus I don't think BOC Brother would be too happy having to count each line to make sure that 500 were indeed posted! ;)

    Damn! That's my plan rumbled...... ;-)
