    I wasn't complaining really more like making an observation. I accept that thread participation is not a requirement but I just thought a hello would have been nice. Anyways, that's not what Stock2ber is about. It's about watching all make awesome technological advancements, I mean a Pen, who'd have thunk it???

    Good try. Good video too, but it doesn't = bonus entry I'm afraid.

    Currently there are 3 options for bonus entries:

    1. Post a silly joke for Colin (deadline 12pm noon TODAY!) - any joke qualifies (keep it clean)
    2. Post some sort of photoshop/paint chimera monstrosity or any other image that makes in onto the wall in the video (somewhat at my discretion)
    3. Impress me with something marvellous! (totally at my discretion but there has to be some authorship involved - NO PROMISES!)

    Total entries allowed is 3 maximum (so no more than 2 bonus entries). Multiple submissions in categories 1 or 2 only equal 1 entry per category (e.g. 2 jokes will only = 1 entry). As category 3 is for extra special bonuses (e.g. "above and beyond" efforts like the theme song video by Gonk), it is possible to earn both your bonuses for 2 selections here. The only thing I've picked this year as a Cat 3 IS in fact the theme song by Gonk.

    I love people getting involved and submitting things, but apart from mini-comp things like the Joke for Colin, posting it does not mean it will automatically earn a bonus entry. Please don't spend hours on something if all you are doing it for is the bonus entry because I might not pick it (and please don't hate me for that either!). If you do something for fun however and then post it, it's all good - you might get a bonus, you might not, but at least it was fun to do.

    Phew! I feel a bit like teacher today. Mr Explainatron!

    Cheers,

    Al

    1. NOW THAT would be something! Not sure if I could explain that.
    2. I know what you mean, I was one of the "7": me, Ed, Liam, Adam, err Tom D... (okay maybe not 7 exactly, but a nice guffaw blasted across the office as Tom related your "bring me the box" gag)

    It's a shame I'm actually busy... I was going to pop a lil something in the box.

    [The something being a jokey picture or 2.]

    Side note: "busy" got auto-corrected to "busty"...

    Well Al, if a few extra 'sparkeh' tickets dropped into the chassis, who would know.... *wink*
    Edit: that was a conspiratorial wink, not a flirty wink... though if that would help...
