      * What is this talk of colors, placement, meaning and regional influence?
      * Other than talking, how can I be sure to communicate to others I am or am not GLBT to avoid an awkward situation?
      * Will I catch 'teh' [Gay|Lesbian|Bisexual|Transgendered] if I attend?

      I'm sure there are others that have been asked in the past.

      I enjoy most of your posts, but that one was just really really stupid.

          Hopefully the scav hunt judges this year actually want to make the game fair and will get rid of the "unlimited pt items". I think most of the teams would agree to nix them, they just take a lot of the fun out of the game...

          We could have gone in there with all our soda tabs and won the game without even doing anything else... And that would have killed the competiton...

          So lets all be smart this year and vote NO to unlimited items.

            Crap. This "humor" thing still eludes me. On a scale of one to 10, 10 being asshat, and 1 being a newbie, how bad was it?
            On a serious note, only two of those listed were jokes*. The suggestion for a FAQ is genuine.
            The humor in the last item was in the double meaning of "catch."

            * jokes: sort of like the funny kind-- only different.

              Or posting them on forums for 1 day, just to be [closed] right away, only to be found by doing obscure search for "soda tabs" after the Con is already over. But that didn't matter much, cause HW already came to con with a gag of tabs, only to blow the points out of control to once again start bashing dc702 for their 1100+ point lead over 3rd place, and -4500 point loss to you guys. But HEY! It's cool! I'm just saying.....


              SAYING IT'S FREAKIN ON!!!!

              Come get some!!!!

                It's not our fault you didn't know how to play the game.

                This is historically the reason that most teams WHINE about losing.

                You lost, suck it up and stop whining.

                I was trying to make a point that the unlimited items take the fun out of the game, do you disagree? Should they keep them?

                I'm all for helping charity, but make it a pre-hunt list item worth 100 points and leave it at that... No more unlimited items!

                  no no no!!!! I was just "playing along" with you! Don't go personal on me man! "Friendly Rivelry" right?

                  Anyways, agree that the unlimited item should get ditched. That was kinda wack.

                    If it was seriously going to cause problems, I would of done something about it... judges have every right to step in on an item and rule one way or another, it's been like that every year. However, the game went amazingly well, and the popcan tabs just added a bit of spice and humor to the game. I do recall that even without the tabs, the teams would of all been in the same position. I could of called Siviak and Highwizard out on that one, and stepped their points down to a point per 50 tabs for the lack of effort put into gathering the number of tabs they did (as we like to watch the players suffer =), but there was no point.

                    Would Siviak come back to this game 3 years in a row now to play a game he thought wasn't any fun and ran very poorly?

                    ...

                    wait... don't answer that question...

                      While we may not have made first place (with or without the tabs) as soon as they arrived with 8 bags of tabs we ditched out last day run that would have given us everything but the clothes pins. When you see a site like that, your motivation just drops to nothing.

                      I supose the unlimited item would still be cool, so long as what that items "is" is withheld securly until the contest accually begins. This would give total equal timeline for all teams, and would allow for more teams to join the next year. It's hard to say "I'll join next year, that looked fun" when one team beats out all other teams by very large margin.

                      /NOT complaining, just pointing out the obvious. Will still be there this year

                        Unlimited is still cool if you have to work hard at each and every one of the unlimited items. For instance, some unlimited items could include meteorite pieces weighing more than one pound, LVPD shirts complete with badge and nametag, 1913 Liberty Head nickels, home made 100GB ipods, etc.

                          heh... you know that guy has WAY too much free time he may have done it.

                          But seriously, the 801 guys have done one hell of a job keeping it fun and challanging. I only hope that my help and ideas will make it even better this year.

                          speaking of which I need to talk to a few of you guys just to get things pinned down.. all you players.... get your helmets
                          If I had a nickle for every time someone offered me ten cents to keep my two cents to myself... I would be a rich man.

                              Unlimited is cool when it isn't an item you'd obviously try to get more of. For example, we won at DC10 on account of the "Do a cannonball into the pool, 10 pts for each item of clothing". Other teams had each member jump into the pool with what they were wearing. Instead of doing that, we waited til Sunday afternoon, 10 mins before the final bell, piled every piece of clothing we owned onto Siviak and waddled him out to the pool. He almost drowned, the rest of us stayed dry, and victory was quite sweet!

                              What did I do to make you think I give a shit?

                                Sounds like a good suggestion to me. www.queercon.org now has a FAQ page that answers all of your questions (I think). Plus a special shout-out, just for you. *wink*
