Hey Youse Guys! New Mystery Contest!

Post by porkuslime » Sat Nov 28, 2009 1:59 pm

Right, all ya wise guys n' gals... think you can beat the Staff? We have been tossing around a contest and are now taking mugs'... I mean Contestants... names.


Here is what you can do.. right now. PM HarlequinZero if you want to BLIND ENTER yourself on this contest. We ain't telling ya what it is right now.. we want to see who is willing to jump into the deep end of the pool wit' da Concrete Galoshes.

This "entry period" will last until Dec 1. 2009, 11pm EST. At that point, we will reveal the contest and early entrants will get a MINOR advantage. (We will give ya an edge, see). No, I ain'ts agonna tell ya what the edge is..

Ifn' ya gots questions.. we MIGHT be able to answer 'em.. or not. IF we think youse might make it worth our while, yaknowhutimean?

One udder ting.. we may get too many respondants wan'ting t' challenge us.. ifn' so.. we will pick nics outta a chapeau.. ..
2+2=5 for sufficiently large values of 2.

If you don't have your Location listed in your User Control Panel, why not take a second and update it? It will let your trading partners know where you are from the beginning.

I use the Unofficial Porkuslime Trading Guidelines - if you have way less refs.. you ship first.

Folks I am awaiting a ref from.. Zack

Just to alleviate some concerns, there is no cost for participating in the contest. It's free. Also, it involves NO painting or converting. That's all I can tell you.

what? What's a chapeau? Sorry I speak Ah-merry-CAN...

So it has no paint, no conversion, no $ for entry and uses ur brain? So is it a quiz/ test thing?
Lowest rating ships first even from payments

Leave feedback. It helps build the BT community. It's the polite thing to do. If I owe you a ref - please PM with details so I can fix that oversight.

What exactly is a "forsaken poptart"? Is it like a lime poptart with no frosting?

It's the last poptart left when a fat guy eats almost a whole box in one sitting, then lapses into a coma and lets the last one go stale.
