    [IMGLEFT][/IMGLEFT] The tMP 2005 Advent Calendar & Christmas Quiz

    Last year saw the first ever tMP Advent Calendar, and we've decided to run a similar venture this year - but with a difference!

    Each day, we will post a mini-quiz - some music-related, some Christmas-related, some tMP-related - and some not related to anything! All we ask is that you PM all your answers to Dinie and not post them anywhere on tMP. EDIT: Whilst it is very helpful having the answers coming in daily, we appreciate that not everyone can get on line every day, so if this is the case with you, please feel free to play catch up. :) The total score for each tMPer will be added up, and the winner will be announced on Christmas Day.

    We will have some prizes available the winners, but it's also a bit of fun to help with the countdown to Christmas 2005. We really hope that a lot of you join in - you don't have to enter your answers for every single day, but it would help if you want to be crowned the tMP Christmas Quiz Champion for 2005!

    If you would like to contribute a little something towards the prize, feel free to PM any member of the team.

    Thanks, and good luck!

    [IMGLEFT][/IMGLEFT] Spot the Difference

    I'm feeling all nice and generous today, so I thought I'd give you something nice and easy and a bit of fun. :biggrin: There are 7 differences between these two pictures (please ignore the pencil on the mountain on the right hand picture - this is NOT one of the differences). Please write a list of the differences as you spot them and reply, as per usual, to Dinie.

    You did so well with the first tune, I thought you deserved another. :biggrin: Simply rearrange these notes into a well known Christmas Carol.

    For those of you who have struggled and not found an answer to one of these questions, it may be due to the fact that one of the parties listed above, not knowing they were involved in the competition, changed their signature. This person has now received a life time ban from tMP ;) and the signature has been restored! :biggrin: Oh all right, since its nearly Christmas, I'll hold off on the ban, so please don't flood the Mods PM boxes with complaints!

    If you've already submitted your answers for the 10th with some missing, please feel free to try again and send me the answer.

    Some more 'guess the tMPer' stuff for you! This time from a portion of their avatars (We'd appreciate it if the ones used weren't changed till the quiz is finished, ta!)






    And today's bonus question:

    "To whom should you PM your answers?"

    Ok, that's a bit too tricky isn't it - so I'll give you the answer to that one:
