I thought we would have an open-ended "name that movie" contest, based on images posted to challenge readers. Everyone can contribute pictures, but of course you don't get points for your own submissions.
Not just movies, but TV shows, posters, album art, portraits; anything with an A/V connection that falls within forum decorum rules. Meaning there must be clothes on the women or artfully concealing camera angles.
The challenge is to find material that is not too easy but not impossibly obscure.TIP
: give your files a temporary name before uploading them, else "peeking" to see the original filenames is possible.
If anyone plays I'll keep a tally of correct answers so we know who is King of the Forum
- This is a gentleman's game and is run on the honor system. It is the one place on the internet where I know such a scheme will work.
- If you find yourself violating the rules, you must handicap yourself in playing the game until the violation is expunged. Use your judgment in deciding that.
- Whoever posts a challenge can state his own rules, but unless otherwise stated, we've been using the following.
- One answer at a time, no multiple solutions to a given challenge.
- One wrong answer per challenge per 24 hours. This is to prevent a player from "bombing" the thread with plausible solutions.
- Guessing is allowed, but "research" is forbidden in the first 48 hours. Example: you recognize an actor and look him up in the IMDB to find likely film matches. This is forbidden in the first 48 hours because we are trying to reward players who actually recognize the images.
- If the poster of the challenge begins offering clues or additional images, we judge the 48 hours have expired, regardless of the clock. Research is allowed.
- Automated image look-up tools are always forbidden. For example, google has a tool where you submit an image and it finds close matches. That's not playing the game.
