I saw the belt.

Funko
12-11-2009, 11:30:48
Well I have 2 in, that should make things doable.

Funko
12-11-2009, 11:31:08
Ha! It is in the bag. As long as nothing actually comes up at work.

Funko
12-11-2009, 11:31:28
4 ahead already. dooo di dooo di dooo

Funko
12-11-2009, 11:31:52
So if I get to 15 ahead, with 5 mins to go I can stop. That's useful to know.

Funko
12-11-2009, 11:32:12
blah di blah

Funko

You know, if he hadn't put the belt avatar on I probably wouldn't have thought of it.

Funko
12-11-2009, 11:33:04
Number 8! 8! ah ha ha ha

Funko
12-11-2009, 11:33:24
Engines at 70% power. I'm way off 20 seconds a post.

Funko
12-11-2009, 11:33:45
Oh that was exactly 20, no flood control. my instincts are honed.

Funko
12-11-2009, 11:34:06
How many posts are we on now? It seems like it's only been 3 mins.

Funko
12-11-2009, 11:34:41
I think we can probably safely say this one is in the bag now.

Funko
12-11-2009, 11:35:02
Another belt to hang on the wall.

Funko
12-11-2009, 11:35:22
This is 16!

Funko
12-11-2009, 11:35:43
I'll do 18 to make sure. Yeah.

Funko
12-11-2009, 11:36:09
Ok post 18. 4 mins left. It's a bit overkill but what the hell.

computer says: You last visited: Today at 11:29:27

so no

Funko
12-11-2009, 16:03:09
You posted less than a minute before the challenge, I get 10 mins to respond.

Funko
12-11-2009, 16:05:12
2 mins not 10 mins, but I was within 1 min so valid.


When the Hardcore belt holder is online, the challenger can post a challenge as a reply to any post the holder makes. (must be within 2 minutes of a post).

Funko

And you were still in the "users viewing this forum" when I posted the thread.

Funko
12-11-2009, 16:07:52
although you have hidden if you are online or not, I can only see it because I'm a moderator, which is why we always played to the 2 minutes of last post rule rather than "online" which is open to interpretation due to people hiding their status

Funko
12-11-2009, 16:10:21
Ah I tell a lie.

the + means you are on my contact list, not that you are hidden. Maybe I can't see hidden people?

If i'm online, you can post a challenge within 2 mins of a post of mine. But I maintain i wasn't online.

Funko
12-11-2009, 16:54:23
I started posting the thread basically as soon as you posted your thread at 11:29:19, I didn't rush but 42 seconds later this thread was posted, and when I pressed the "New Thread" button you were still online.

Only way to get offline that fast is to log out manually, which is certainly against the spirit of the rules if not the letter. And with lots of people engaging stealth mode you can't rely generally on the "who's online" to say who is or isn't online, that's why we have the 2 minute rule. And I was well within that.

Funko

This is arguably the best rule exploit EVER!

12-11-2009, 17:56:35
Boys, boys. Can't you both be hardcore champions?

Funko
13-11-2009, 09:27:19
What kind of pinko hippy thinking is that!

It's certainly turned into a hardcore rules argument...:lol:

MOBIUS
13-11-2009, 10:38:02
Is that the 'challenge'?

Funko

Isn't that the point of the game?

Greg W
13-11-2009, 12:02:08
Yeah, I vaguely remember back when I held the belt, having to monitor the forums for 2 mins (and a bit more to be sure) after I last posted before I could close the browser window down.

God, after all these years I'm still such a n00b...:(

Funko
13-11-2009, 12:49:21
stfu n00b!

Funko
13-11-2009, 12:49:41
The other point is to be awesome and win the belt o/c.

Drekkus
13-11-2009, 13:30:43
But there can only be one first time winner of course.
