Ey guys, sorry for my delay. I was outta town in Querétaro (220km away from home...) and I just got here today. In my way back home I stop by the "LOS PINOS" and took the pictures for completing my own challenge. I know I've out several days now (and these are useless), but I want to show respect for the GAME and of course for ALL OF YOU GUYS.

I can see the "game goes on" (good move!), just wanted to let you know that it was an emergency for me so I was requested there for work (I'm a Senior Systems Engineer) the whole last week.

So these is me with my non-points pictures for you guys. in fact negative points for me

quick note: by the time I got there and stop the car several soldiers got out of nowhere (less than two seconds!) asking me to leave... so I cannot take any good pictures there... so! as it was mentioned: I gotta do the challenges easierrrrr!!! LOL

Assuming the pic from a week ago is not accepted, here's an M6 convertible... (I'll wait for approval.)

PAMidge - Nice pic, though. What is it?

Easy for some, not for others It just occurred to me that if you didn't explicitly keep some floppies around you would be entirely unable to fulfill this challenge

F2 *is* fast and expensive. Nice shot, damn.

First post. Rules. Pic has to be "recent". Recent doesn't mean after.

Example: E9x in front of a McDonalds-You get it done (you must submit picture of YOUR car in it and it HAS to be recent).

Whatever you want, I stopped caring weeks ago. Just enjoy the picture of the matte black murcielago.

oh come on Pam, you are here long enough to know that we've been over this again and decided to accept photos taken after the challenge was posted..

love the murcielago though, do you have pics of the whole car??

Pic "recent" or "after" the challenge?...

I couldn't remember what we decided on this issue. Should pics be "recent" or "after" the challenge? I looked back at the several times we discussed this. I edited out the unrelated fluff and listed the quotes below so we don't have to look back again.

The real kicker is that Game Creator Youngnastyman and the game leaders all agree.

(In the interest of being fair, I left out the previous posts from both me and Pamidge.) I'm happy to defer to whatever the group decides:

We should stick to our guns on this one (battleship pun!).

I'm with panicos - we can't set this sort of precedent!

I cannot go to Cyprus and check to see if Panicos was next to a garbage truck to see if he completed the challenge for the game, so I believe he completed the challenge based on the picture.

This game is current, using old photos that we have stored defeat the whole intent of the game - to go out and complete what someone has challenged you to do.

My 2 cents.

Photo to be taken after challenge is posted. This is the point of this game - to go and complete the challenge that someone posted to complete. Why would I challenge someone to do something if it is already done, and the photo is posted in seconds?

If someone challenges you to do something, and you give someone a photo and say "here ya go I win" the challenge is not won, as the past is not the same as the present. Same reason a bank will not cash a check that is dated a day later than you bring it in....

We can start doing Christmas challenges now if there are recent photos stored on a hard drive to back it up..

As an option for challenges that I post going forward, I may ask as part of the challenge completion that the photo must be taken beyond a certain date with proof - probably not, pain in ass....

Again, the fun part of this game for me is doing the challenge, the photo is just the proof since we all cannot be there to see it happen.

IMO, i feel the pics should be taken after the challenge, its more competitive and fair that way.

One of my challenges I stated a "recent mod/mod purchase within the last 30 days" But the picture was taken after the challenge was posted.

Taken from rules below:

Example: E9x in front of a McDonalds-You get it done (you must submit picture of YOUR car in it and it HAS to be recent). Then YOU say a picture of a homeless guy holding an e90post.com sign on a piece of cardboard next to your car.

Recent- should be "taken after the challenge is posted" is how I see it.

Based on the word "recent" in the original rules, and the picture is a clear win based on the challenge itself, I say the Avengers is next.

But what I meant on the OP by "recent" is that it must be taken as an attempt to meet the challenge. Simply having a picture that meets the challenge in your endless stock of pics (which many of us have) is not fair to others and is not acceptable.

Youngnastyman has spoken.

Anyone else having trouble with the website?

Another easy one that can be done without leaving the house. Especially since it's so late in the evening, at least here in the U.S.

Your E9x with any type of storage box.
