    It was 45 minutes, you're right. I don't know how much difference that really makes though. If you're not sending me a PM I have to go off the times I see.

    You said "i dont know about 49. i've looked through so many pics of anne hathaway she's starting to turn ugly. it's definitely a photocall for get smart in Mexico, but every gallery of pictures I find doesn't have that one in it." an hour before it was submitted to me. If you guys had the actual correct answer why would there be posts by skeet 20 minutes later posting a very close version of the original pic?

    yes it was with the correct 49 which is on our page but we are not getting credit because of a suggestion posted by me and 2k5.

    So basically I looked for that anne hathaway picture for like an hour, and not only did we have it, but it ended up hurting us? :(

    You guys really should send me a PM with your answer sheet instead. With how the times lined up and the way you worded your PM to me to me it sounds like you didn't have the correct picture as you said GISH updated the links much later.

    Yes!!! Jorden thinks because we posted that in the thread we ment to use that. Gish does not need to post links in the thread as he just puts links in 1st thread. Its really sad that our team is being cheated

    See that's what I don't get. You, Skeet, and Penn less than an hour before your turn in obviously thought you did not have the correct 49. You see where that gets a little sketchy when a post 4 hours after the turn in says links are updated?

    Yes we had stitches pic on our first page for 49 (I actually have not idea who turned it in) and I checked them very early in the afternoon and asked ppl to help me find 8 (Was not right size due to your rules LMAO) 29 (was a broken link from what I thought), and 49. After asking ppl to help me I posted 8 and 29 in the thread. 2k5 sent me a text saying he thought he found it. I posted the pic in thread. Gish informed me that he already fixed 49 before he left for work. I checked it at my cousins house than sent you the PM after I confirmed the right pic. After Gish got off work he updated pic 8 and told me he was not having a broken link problem with 29 so he did not change that one. However they were both posted in thread way earlier in the day. I also sent in a text to everyone after PM telling them I turned it in and have fun. I then went and whatced UFC at friends house after my cousins graduation party.

    Jordan. I'm sorry to say this, but you're ruining this game with your lack of attention to detail. You need to do a better job of explaining the rules of these challenges. For all the work that you put into making them, and we put into playing them, it needs to be more clear what the exact stipulations are for what is and is not accepted. You can't post one thing, and then say you meant something different. We went by exactly what you said. We went back and found all the pictures that were too small and searched again till we found the correct size. The other team posted pictures that were WAY smaller than yours and you gave them credit after stating it had to be close. The one with the fish isn't close at all.

    This is the 3rd challenge where lack of detail in the description has been a factor. In the picture challenge you allowed them to use pictures that look nothing like the things the represented, after specifically saying that wouldn't be allowed. In the name scramble challenge one name was misspelled, countless players were indistinguishable between Dolphins and Athletes, and after asking if there were any basketball players you said there weren't until I insisted that there were. Also in that challenge we were disqualified for breaking a rule that wasn't ever stated, only assumed, even when the same thing was allowed last year. Now this week once again you're letting their team slide after stating the rules on way, now grading them differently.

    Our #49 picture was correct before we submitted. I only updated the links that were broken. I updated our Will Farrel picture, which we had found days before but the link wasnt saved to our master list.

    Well guess what. Thats not what Jordan said. Rules are rules. Youre pictures were too small. He said pictures that were too small WOULD NOT be accepted.

    Bottom line is we got 49 pictures exactly right, and they got 48 pictures with some not being the right size. WE ****ING WIN!!!

    I dont know what the timetable was for pictures we got. All I know is as of about 3:15 when I stopped looking, I was under the impression that we did not at that time have the correct hathaway picture. However there is still a 45 minute gap between then and when we submitted so I don't really know when we found that picture or the details of submission. I was out to dinner when all that happened and didn't get home until late last night. I would have to assume that it was found sometime between 315 and 4 and updated, but I didn't check the thread anytime after then until i got home

    At this point I feel ive spent too much of my time trying to justify us winning a challenge that in all likelihood seems like we have not and will not win, so I'm just going to wait until the next challenge is posted one way or the other. I have to travel back to the desert this afternoon so if you still end up needing our votes by 8 PST or whatever time that was I'll do it around then bc thats when I'll get to the hotel

    I read the rules and what I read into them was that we needed to have everything in the picture. It wasn't so much the dimensions that mattered but the frame of the photo. It could be a larger frame, not smaller. Like let's say I take a 8'11" pick of someone. It doesn't really matter whether I produce the replica in thumbnail or original size, as long as what was in the original was in the pic. I couldn't produce a picture of just the person's face, but could produce a larger version of the pic, say the person in a larger background. That's what we confirmed with Jorden. That was the spirit of the rule. If you want to keep trying to nail us on a technicality that doesn't exist, then by all means. Jorden seems to have interpreted the rule fairly.

    I understand your frustration. It was a tough challenge. It's a tie game, and both teams have caught some tough breaks. How bout we just settle this in the final challenge?

    Even if Jordan accepts your small pictures after explicitly stating that smaller pictures will not be accepted, you still lost. We got 49, you got 48. I fail to see how you win, or how this could be a tie.

    For the Juggernaut challenge I lost a lot of time having to redo my mazes. I planned to spend the day working on the word scramble but with having to redo all 200 mazes I had to rush it a little more than I wanted. It was a huge challenge and I wanted to get it out on time. There were about 3 athletes who were also Dolphins for one year and one average player who spent the majority of his playing career with other teams (unless they were with us currently which I said early). I would also say I was pretty readily available to answer your questions and categorize your already correct answers for you. I'm not even sure how much of a difference that made in the challenge anyways? I was in contact way way more with you guys than I was with them. As far as cheating goes just because I do not think up of ways to cheat doesn't mean it shouldn't be obvious. My first challenge both years I've put "I made this point last year but realized I haven't this year. You cannot go to other boards to get members with little to no posts to vote for your flag. It's cheap and I consider it cheating." and because of last year I put up that you cannot sign into your teams accounts. Last year there was one post from Paul 13 saying "thanks to SICK for getting the final intel on that one." and that was it. So no I did not know he was going on a disney forum to get information. I found that out recently. Also when you say I didn't DQ anyone from a challenge last year for cheating, well that's exactly why I made "my biggest rule change" for this year. I didn't make teams pay for cheating last year. I wanted less of it so that's why it was enforced this year and not last year. I don't believe this is the first time I've had to explain this either.


    For the picture challenge both of you had a crappy picture if I remember. I don't know if you remember but I accepted all of your guys pictures as well. I'm sorry but it was basically MS paint and I didn't expect a great drawing. Go look at last years drawings. Other than SICKs, which wasn't colored in, I think only GIK's was really all that good. I don't know what else there needs to be said on that.


    For this challenge you have three team members assuming that they have the wrong 49. They find a 49 they believe is right 45 minutes before it is submitted. You're telling me that you either replaced that 49 in those 45 minutes without telling anyone in the thread (even though there was two posts with the wrong 49 right before submission), or that all three of your teammates were looking at the correct image believing it is wrong. The hardest part about believing the last part is Friday night you guys had the wrong picture (I posted it earlier) which is what I'm assuming they all thought you had down as #49. Skeet at 4:11PM EST says "49 is wrong someone please find the right picture" Then you post that you fixed broken links hours after it is submitted. You don't see where that's a little sketchy? He tells me "There are two pics at the end of the thread in our group page. Thanks" and you're telling me he didn't mean his #49 and he knew all along? If you had sent me your list as a PM like the other team, your #29 would've been wrong because it was a broken link, so if I go with yours it's still 48/50. Do I go with a little of what skeet said (but not all :lol:) or go with your list? Literally the last posts before 6:59PM EST are "she's so purdy" 37 minutes before it was submitted, and skeet's post of her with "This should work for 49. Its not the exact size but pretty big. Credit goes to 2k5" which is funny considering you guys arguing about the size of their pictures. You may have had the right one on time (which I'm not even sure is correct), but I went with Skeet's submission which was the wrong 49. He said two pictures at the end of the thread which were the first ones graded. You guys complain about me not being clear but I'd say that one's on Skeet. I'm sorry if you don't like how it went down but I'd say you guys should PM me your answers for now on. As far as the size issue, I told you guys if it was close I'd accept it. It had all the information before and I told both teams that I would probably accept it. As I said before when I was asked if your #8 would be acceptable in my head I thought yes but I wasn't allowed to answer you. That's when I changed the rule early (yes I'm allowed to do that) so that if I thought it was close I'd take it. So a picture like that would be accepted.

    GISH likes to live by the rule book (when it helps him, of course), trust me... I know. This is why I will put "rules are subject to change" in every damn rule thread in the GM League now.

    i cant control what others post in the thread. i fixed our #49 before i went to work yesterday, which was before we submitted. you reading between the lines is bull****. next time we'll just PM the list instead of inviting you to our group.

    funny that you wouldnt tell us that the size was ok for our #8, but you tell the other team its ok to have smaller pictures. honestly jordan, **** you. im done with this game. vote me off.

    Then why did 3 of your teammates assume you had the wrong 49? If you did it early in the day then why did Skeet post that 49 is wrong a few hours before the submission, find another one 45 minutes later, then tell me to use the links at the end of the thread. If I take your list, #29 is broken. If Skeet PM's me a list, he puts down the wrong #49 than him and 2k5 found 45 minutes earlier.

    I told them if it was close and had 100% of the information in the picture I'd probably accept it. I didn't tell them whether anything was officially accepted.

    You're telling me that in those 45 minutes, you told Skeet you actually had the correct picture? You can't see where him saying to use the last links in the thread could be interpreted as such considering the times? I graded your #29 and #49 first I didn't even know you guys had the right one until Skeet told me later.

    GISH, do you realize that every single challenge you guys have lost you have *****ed and cried and complained about it? Never once have you given any credit to our team. According to you we've won because of luck, a technicality, a loophole and now you accuse Jorden of cheating you. The only time we *****ed about losing a challenge was the Chess challenge where we were cheated against. 2 of your team members have confirmed that now. But whatever, I'm not even dwelling on that even more. I personally find your immaturity hilarious. You usually have to pay good money for entertainment of this quality. But if you really want to quit, and you really want to be voted off then your incessant *****ing wont be missed.

    I want to believe that GISH changed the master without anyone else on KotN knowing while they were still looking and submitting the picture. The way Skeet worded his PM and no other teammates knowing makes it very subjective to the answer I choose. For now on I need all submissions done by PM. That way there shouldn't be a broken link, wrong answer, or me having to go search for answers and potentially picking the wrong one to check.

    You want me to give you credit? Ok, what would you like credit for? Getting lucky at battleship? Good job. Drawing pictures of drawings instead of objects? Great job! Winning by default? Awesome job!!!! Finding less pictures than us? Outstanding job!!!!! There's your credit. Stop acting like I'm making this up just because we lost. I didn't see anyone lining up with pats on the back from your team when we walked all over you for the first 5 challenges. Now that Jordan is on your team you're all tough. I've accepted the previous losses. But we ****ing won this one and are still getting a loss and its total bull****. Honestly I don't give two ****s what you think Trowa. This game isn't fun. I work too damn hard at all the other **** in my life to sit here and put this work into a "game" where the winner and rules are decided after the fact. Jordan can twist his rules to help whichever team he feels, and he's making it obvious that he wants the teams to be even heading into the final team challenges.

    So let me get this straight. We had 49/50 right on our list, but because Skeet didnt know that I had already fixed #49, we don't get credit for it? Sorry, next time I'll be late for work so I can document every move I make.

    Don't blame Jorden because you lost. Personally, the fact that you guys were updating links several hours after your list was supposed to be submitted and the fact that over half of your team seems to be oblivious really smells fishy to me. If you want to blame someone, blame your team captain for not being organized. That's 2 he's cost you now.

    Yes of course but with all those posts if your submission was sent in a PM are you sure Skeet wouldn't have sent in his #49 instead of yours in the master thread? Why would he tell me "There are two pics at the end of the thread in our group page. " with the most recent #49 being 45 minutes ago. You don't see where this is really sketchy? The 29 was broken when I checked yesterday and I know I wasn't the only one. I gave you credit for it with skeet's link

    You're frustrated that you put work in and loss? Guess what, so were we when you guys cheated your way to a win in chess. Especially since you swore up and down you didn't and it's since been confirmed by the teammate you guys screwed over. Reap it.
