Simple Machines, LLC announces the MotM Photo Contest!
« on: January 02, 2008, 12:56:36 AM »
Beginning on Tuesday, January 1st through Sunday, January 6th, we will be holding a photo matching contest. Pictures were taken of each MotM attendee and compiled on a page.   Your job is to figure out which picture belongs to each team member!

http://www.simplemachines.org/photos.php

Here's how it works:
  • Members will be shown a set of images and a selection box.  The idea is to match each photo with the corresponding team member's name.
  • Winners will be selected based on the number of correct submissions.  In the event of a tie, the first person to successfully submit their answers shall be declared the winner.

Rules:
  • Each member may only submit their guesses once
  • You may not ask a team member for assistance
  • Team Members and SMF friends are ineligible

Prizes:
  • Grand prize:  A selection of a book from O'reilly Media (or gift of comparable value) and a one year charter membership (or extension)
  • First & Second Prize: A selection of a book from O'reilly Media (or gift of comparable value)

Have fun and good luck!

just about the same Alundra ;)


So it says were able to guess again but does that mean once we complete the latest guess it will count as the latest guess?

It was decided not to give you what you scored but instead allow you to resubmit your guesses.

I think I know about 4 or 5.
Most the others were guesses.

How about 'rejig' the options.

It was sort of too easy to be true, just mousing over an image and looking at the URL, still, a fun thing to do.

You all look like clever people, no surprises there.

I'm guessing thats a setup/prank.  Naming the images as different people and seeing who would fall for it.
