Now that the new site is sorted (barring any problems) and virtually everyone who was going to play this has joined up, could you set a provisional date to start this, barring technical issues of course. Next weekend maybe?

when James initially said he'd do it on Sunday a little bit of wer came out as I've got a 'family tea down t'curry mile' as I finish exams...then an excited little bit of wee followed as i realised it would be a different Sunday. If TFF's self indulgent closing due to a pathetic hissy fit means I miss this I will put some weird voo-doo on villaboy (for the record of anybody reading this, I do not know voo-doo and am not going to intentionally harm villaboy).

And Rammy me old mate, can we try and make it at 6pm rather than 7pm starts. It just helps a little with the time difference. if we can't, then no worries!

I'll give it a few days to see how the forum is coping on the new server, and then I'll set a date. Need a little time to either move things around or add a new game, with one game now missing anyway.

I'm in.


You could still do that, would just be a bit more challenging now.
Been debating that actually. There's a few questions I'd have to change though, as there's no way you can find out who got the highest score in TPLG in one random week for example.

Yeah, those questions wouldn't work, but I'm sure a lot still would. Would be fun to do a quiz where it's hard or impossible to look up the answers.

Hey Rammy, if you set yours for Sunday then we can make sure our Sheep game is for Saturday or Monday. Don't wanna clash mate.

I need to check with Chris that people aren't still being randomly blocked access. Can't start this if that's still happening.

(Happened to me again late last night)

Right, I've been assured that everything should be fine with the server in terms of people constantly refreshing the page.

However I've just been locked out again for nearly an hour, so I'll set a date once that's not happened to me for a few days.

Right, the offer I left on the table for this house has tentatively been accepted today, so I either need to get this started quickly, or it gets delayed for a length of time.

I can either start it this weekend, with the possibility of needing the odd evening to do house things if it's fully accepted next week or we wait.

If we start this weekend, I need to be sure this website is working properly. Please let me know in here if you have been having difficulties getting on.

I think I'm out Saturday evening, so Sunday 6pm if we do go this weekend!

Just a suggestion like, lots of people have dinner at that time - could we not make it 5pm or 8pm maybe?

Haha that was to keep Posh Hammer happy. It'd be 7pm otherwise, as I originally had intended.

If more people would prefer 7, I'll switch it.

Not sure we're going to get as many as 25 playing now that we're on a smaller forum, so we may not see the 'Red or Black' game. See how it goes though.

As for the time, 7pm is a lot better for me but since nobody complained while Posh Hammer was asking for an earlier time I assumed everyone was fine with that.
