Good one Fringedweller.

AS for the scoring I think it is 3 points for guessing what they all have in common and 1 point for guessing the odd one out and completing the set.

And the person who completes the set gets to go the next round.

Oh and btw you should not post your signature in the jokes thread ;-)

All three were at one stage or another olympic host cities, but Oslo only ever hosted the winter olympics, while Stockholm and Helsinki only ever hosted the summer olympics.



Ah correct, nice one FD. So two more points, in addition to the one earned before, for FD:

The easy part is to work out what the set has in common. That's not really worth three points in comparison to picking which the odd one out is, which would complete the set.

Oh please don't pull rules out of your backside. Some thread titles do mention not to use sigs in posts, where it makes sense, but there is no mention of that for this section of the forum at all. In those threads posts are typically one-word replies, and sigs would overpower the posts themselves in them. This thread - as well as a number of other threads in this section of the forum - is not one of them.

lol I've posted with a sig, as default setting, so long I don't mind turning it off once in a while - I really should do more often, especially if it affects the forum's bandwidth, as it used to. My sig is a little outdated anyway - Your Sig Comp was a little while ago now Admiral, I could update it to some show I'm looking forward to, but then again I don't mind promoting your old thread for a while still - Sig Comp doesn't date that much and every comp's sig makes for a great gallery/archive of sigs. But back on topic - Yeah, I don't mind and appreciate the reminder, because as I said, I've been doing it so long, using one so long as default, I've just gotten used to it and hadn't noticed. ;)

Hmm I'm starting to notice this too - So I may start working on having ones tougher to figure out what they have in common, just to make things interesting. I'm still thinking a point should be awarded for getting the former - as that's half of the problem and well, guessing what they have in common may 'not always' be so easy, for many. Maybe CTU can clarify for us?

1. Sorry I just though that that was the scoring system from the initial posts. I stand corrected.

2. Sorry but in this respect you are wrong and I am not pulling rules out of my backside. If you look at the thread http://www.tvaus.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2992 you will note that it states

Please do not include signatures when you are posting in game threads. This is to keep the game flowing along nicely and quickly.


So, as you can see from the TVAus Guidelines we are not permitted to post our signatures in the games threads.

If there signatures appearing in the games thread that you can see you can report the post and the mods will deal with it.

Yes, there are times when I myself forget about the no signature in the games thread but when I remember I go back and delete the signature.

As for the next round

I think the in common is that they are all nom de plumes for authors

The odd one out being George Eliott as she is a female

Currencies

Latinum is a currency from fiction, the currency of the Ferengi in Star Trek.
