    Re: Contest Rules - Comments Welcome

    Barbie,

    I sent out an email same day as the TC that answers all your questions. I just sent it again. Let me know if you can't get it. I didn't want to post all the detail about the contest on the forums. It's a little like finding out how sausage is made....

    We have 7 contestants confirmed, but I cut it off there. I have had several requests in the last 2 days for people to be on the waiting list.

    The contest is 30 hours starting at 12 noon on Friday and ending at 6PM Saturday.

    Anyone interested in being on the waiting list please email buzzwordsurvivor@gmail.com.

    Two

    I would LOVE to know more about what's going on with this contest.... before FRIDAY would be nice!

    I was on a plane for the con-call.... so I know very little still.

    Questions:

    1. Food/Beverage etc.... what's allowed, what's not
    2. 30 Hours or 36???
    3. How many contestants now?
    4. Who are the speakers?
    5. After the 24 hours are we still getting the DVD's?

    Can contestants be delivered beverages and food?

    My apologies if I ignored the obvious.

    Any new info on this?

    What about Food????? Bring your own? I can't imaging being able to run to the bathroom, grab food, and be back in 10 minutes.

    well i'm not sure on the number of people that signed up so far. when i inquired about this by e-mail with numbertwo, as of july 15 there area at least 7 people that have said they would do it. a couple days later i received another e-mail wanting to confirm.

    so tonight i replyed to the e-mail a second time to make sure he got my info. apparently numbertwo is out traveling so i got an auto reply.

    but at least on the up side. there will be people there to play and have fun. lets just hope that we don't loose anyone before the 24 hour mark.

    And thanks for the answers numbertwo. Need to consider it for a bit before I throw my hat in.

    Still only 1 contestant at this point?
    Still only 1 contestant. That's a lot of money for staying awake for 36 hours. Join the fun!

We were wondering if it was a good thing for you or a bad thing for you if we play music at extremely loud levels... I assume this increases the difficulty but we understand if it is difficult enough.

    We won't have the lab on-site however, I think I will tweak the rules to say that anyone suspected of doping will get the same treatment Olympic athletes get. That's why I have the "all rulings by the judge are final and I can do anything I want" rule to cover stuff like this that we may not think of till the middle of the contest.
