2013 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 1, Day 3

Post by DadofTwins » Wed Jul 31, 2013 1:28 pm

To answer a question that has come up in the Instant Replay thread: because the scoring is basically automated now, responses deemed to be "equivocating" will be scored as clams. Please make it clear in your response whether you are actually, you know, responding. If we have to guess, we're going to guess you're not responding.

I want to give you points, but I need to know for sure that you are claiming them.

Hope that makes sense.

On we go.
