    Your first weekly task! Oh, the excitement!


    WEEKLY TASK #1


    "GETTING TO KNOW EACHOTHER"


    Because the first EVICTION won't be for a fortnight (instead of the regular week), this weekly task will run for the first 2 weeks.

    Basically, at the end of the task, each Housemate will have to answer 11 questions each... one for every other Housemate in the house. The questions will be something about the fellow Housemates. In order to complete the task successfully, EACH Housemate must get at least 10 out of the 11 questions correct.

    So, your first task is to get to know your fellow Housemates. Topics covered may include likes and dislikes, their past, their goals, their families, etc etc. So, the more you get to know eachother, the more chance you'll have at successfully completing the first weekly task.

    When you've reached a group concensus, please advise what percentage of your points you'd like to wager.

    POINTS ALLOWED ON TASK: 1000

    CURRENT POINTS TALLY: 1120

    HMs,

    Please state what percentage you'd like to wager on the first WEEKLY TASK. Please consult the Diary Room if you haven't read the Points System.

    The amount is 1000 points as that was the amount at the time the TASK was set.

    Thankyou.

    HMs,

    Specifics in regards to the task (to help with working out a % to bet): You will each be sent, via PM, 11 questions on Wednesday. You will then have 48 hours to complete the answers and PM them back to me.

    On Friday, I'll announce the results.

    HTH.

    Whatever happened to the weekly task?

    Wasn't it supposed to happen on Wednesday?

    Maybe not.

    All the PMs have been sent.

    Maybe some grace on the time frame, but definately none if people get answers wrong. They're pretty easy. :p

    But it's the first weekly task, afterall.

    Are all of the answers in this forum?

    I can't find one of them in here. I believe that I've read every thread.

    Well, I found the answer.

    I'm so happy. Now I can send in my answers.

    Everyone else, get up, or drop everything that you're doing and answer your questions.

    Or don't. I'm just happy to be in here. I really don't need colors for a day to make me happy when I have the 11 of you. [face_love] ;P

    I had 2 easy questions, and one that could have been any of us. That one took some research, but I do believe I got it :D

    I just got back from an unexpected absence, and just answered my questions. Fortunately I was lucky and all of mine were pretty easy. Two I knew and one was easy to find... at least, I hope so. I'd hate to be the one that screwed it up. The lynch mob would probably come after me... :p

    Anyways, if anyone hasn't answered them yet, they'd better get on it!

    My first two questions I knew right off the bat. The third was hard... I have no idea if I got it right. I'd also hate to be the one that messes everything up and have you all come running at me during the night to stab me with pitchforks. ;)

    Actually, BISMARK hasn't logged on since Friday. I hope he comes by soon. :eek:

    Hopefully, he will. Epic said he'd give us some slack on the times for this one. :)

    Bummer.

    Well, I got mine correct at least.

    But it's good not just one person slipped, but several -- otherwise he / she would probably have felt extra rotten.

    Hey, whatever. Unless these points are going to save my real life, I don't care.

    We could lose them all, it wouldn't matter.

    Wow. I'm certainly glad I wasn't the only one who missed something.

    To make it up, if I win any points in the super hero contest, I'll add it to the bin along with Casper's. Assuming epic let's us of course. (Pretty please epic? :D *Puppy face*)
