    I actually quite like the colour, don't have any personal experience with RM so can't comment. Though I have heard a lot of bad feedback from other IT Proffessionals about them which puts me off. I think EduGeek is great wouldn't be where I am now if it wasn't for this website and the community, learnt so much being on here. I appreciate all of the help and it's free so I don't care change the colour to bright orange text with a yellow background. I'd still come on this site, just gutted I couldn't meet @ZeroHour, @Dos-Box at Bett, as I wanted to thank them There's always next year!

    I've got no problems with it, but now that I've discovered that I can replace it with purple, there's nothing better.

    I'd be so tempted to enter if it didn't have to be PowerShell. I've got a funky batch script (which does include some PS) running weekly that exports all form and set lists from SIMS and imports them as distribution groups in AD/Exchange.

    So long as you write a PowerShell script to call the script, I think you can enter it (seems like a stoopid rule to me but hey-ho):

    How do I enter?
    Create a script in Powershell 3.0 (or at least Powershell wrapped for wsh/vbs scripters) that fits into at least one of the categories above
    Zip the script using your EduGeek username as the file name (e.g. JoeBloggs.zip)
    Read the full terms at this page
    Create a new thread in RM Neon Scripting Challenge submission forum and attach your file along with a few details. Please include your real name, sex, age and region.

    Did think about that, but worried it would be seen as "too blatant"... :P

    Also, it's set up to work with our OUs and the fact that we have one form per House, per year etc. So if the rules will allow for custom scripts on the understanding that they could be genericised to work in different environments, I guess that would work.

    Well the ones I posted up they can feel free to tweak as they're genericised so they can be used for any network really. I dont mind that, but I wont be posting up my more intricate and can't live without ones

    Oi!
    No offering them bribes!

    I might inbox them and ask how the 'winners' are selected though. Random selection would be unfair given you can submit anything you like, so I'm guessing it's somebody (or somebodies) reviewing the code that's put up. But clarification would be nice

    no it wasnt that, restrictions here have made it horrible to move/edit/alter our powershell files (a legacy setting we can't locate thanks to the old NM), so wanted to know if it was ok just posting the code

    Powershell scripts are just plain text documents, what's stopping you saving them as scripts as requested? If you can edit text documents, you can edit powershell scripts...

    Because our previous NM locked down the PS1 extention so we can only create new ones. Otherwise they all show up as protected. We can't figure out how he did it so on our new server build we will be adding gpos in batches to see which set did this. Then narrow down from there.
