    hello one and all!

    this is a week-long game that is going to be played with any and all members of both salt lake fan force and rhode squadron.

    starting at midnight tonight board time (3 am for us in RI, and 1 am for those in UT), users can create a sock and post in this thread.

    what is a sock? it is an alternate ID, different from your normal username, used so that no one knows the true identity of the poster. for example, my username is idarii, but i could register a new name like Marshmallow_Lover and post as that username, and no one would know it was me.

    the goal of the game is to guess as many of the socks' true identities as possible. do some investigating to find out! visit the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/board.asp?brd=10141]salt lake board[/link] to see if maybe someone's typing style looks familiar, visit the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/board.asp?brd=10414]rhode island board[/link] to see if someone mentioned loving marshmallows at some point. and have fun!

    at the end of one week (midnight board time on tuesday september 9) everyone will PM either [link=http://boards.theforce.net/pm_send.asp?usr=702755]idarii[/link] or [link=http://boards.theforce.net/pm_send.asp?usr=352771]marold[/link] with two things: 1) their sock name that they used for this game. 2) as many guesses as they like as to which sock they think was who. for example "i think that Marshmallow_Lover was idarii." obviously the person with the most correct guesses/answers wins.

    here are the simple rules:

    1. only one sock per user. we are playing with two cities, so we ask that everyone make only one alternate username/secret identity (aka "sock!")

    2. the usual posting rules will still apply to your sock. no swearing, no flaming, no baiting, etc. in other words, what it says in the terms of service.

    so get your socks at the ready! in approximately 2 1/2 hours from now (again, 3 am in RI, 1 am in UT), you may begin posting at will! have fun!

    anyone else having troubles making a sock? i've had three people tell me the same thing - that the system is not sending a confirmation email when you register. if alot of people are having trouble, we can postpone the game.

    if you aren't getting your password, you could always ask and admin to get it for you. Knightwriter is quite nice about helping out. :)

    good idea sara :)

    i meant to mention earlier, if you're having trouble, don't post it here, but PM me. that way it's still unknown who has a sock and who doesn't.

    What a foul stench in this thread! It smells like a locker room after the homecoming game in a small town in Minnesota!

    Darn yourselves, socks!

    Be proud of who you are! You are noble despite your lowly station in cyberdome. Rise up to your calling, empower yourselves to boldly post where no sock has posted before!!!!

    Oh, nevermind, socks have posted on the Senate Floor! But Knightwriter gets them every time!!!!!! ;)

    Come on socks, post like you've never posted before. We've got but a few days left. You're going to let those few days go to waste? :_|

    okay guys and socks, i'm going to extend this game until midnight board time friday, sept. 12 due to this problem with socks. as sara said, PM knightwriter if you're having troubles with your sock password not getting to you. don't post troubles you may be having here though, just go to town with your sock :) :)
