The reality is that the fun about this game is that some people like to see things that others don't and some people have access to other "sites" or "connections" that others don't. For instance I would never be able to do your e9X on a mountain, because none are close by, nor your E9X next to a skyscraper.

And I'm tired of seeing things where people hold up stupid signs. They're funny at times, but hard to get done as 1 person.


Two people (me and Udub) both went to fire stations. I asked firefighters I didn't know and was told no and to leave. Udub asked friends of his and they also refused. So connections or no connections this isn't something that is easy to accomplish. No one ever claimed it was illegal.

To be fair, your first challenge took a day to complete which isn't bad. But this one is looking like it is going to take a lot longer. I think the general consensus among people here is to have the challenges be fast ones. That doesn't mean they need to be holding up signs rather simple things like "next to a McDonald's" or something. The allure of this is you need to run out and get it done as soon as possible because there is a high probability someone else could complete it before you. It's like a race. Might it be as funny as someone in a Penguin suit? No, but it keeps interest high and the game going. Long challenges make people lose interest and slows everything down. These last few have been more of "who has the balls to do it" type challenges, which many people seem to not be interested in trying.

And my post wasn't directed just towards your challenge. It seems the last few challenges have gotten more and more complex with people adding multiple steps, awarding "bonus points" (which they can't do). I've finished 6 challenges. I'm not going to go back and count, but I think 3 or 4 came within the first 5-10 pages, that's how fast the game used to be. As the winner of the last challenge you can make it whatever you want, but I'm just saying, and people seem to agree, that they prefer shorter challenges.
