What’s the point of having a deadline if it’s not enforced? It seems pretty obvious that if you miss the deadline, your pm won’t count. The only question is: what happens if more than two people miss the deadline? Does the second person take the win?

That’s what I’d do if I were Bluji. (Of course, knowing me, after I say this, I’ll forget to send in the PM.)

Of course, all of us could have already sent in the PM and this could all be a moot point.

Doubt it.

That’s what I’m trying to figure out. Some people might be too intent on getting the PM in at the last moment and accidentally forget or something. Then we get only 1~2 people who PM’d.

You must send in your PM before the deadline hits. Period.

HoH #8 Results

I only received three PMs. However, that is enough for me to award the winner. Let’s see…

CowFriend did not PM me, which means he auto-forfeits.

LouWeed was the first to PM me. Too early, maybeh?

AdeebNafees… he was the second to PM me. Meaning…

Congratulations racefan12! You have won HoH #8!

It is now your task to nominate two of your fellow Houseguests into this week’s Eviction Ceremony. Your decision is expected to be received before 8th November, 2012 at 5:30 PM (GMT +3).

Laments the demise of the skill-based challenge

 
Flag Post

These games aren’t about skill, they’re about psychology.

Of course, there isn’t any good way to simulate that on the Internet… but this is about as good as it gets.

Answer to #15 should be obvious.

It is.

Maybe not to you, though.

There ya go.

It is not about luck. If it were a luck-based challenge, I’d use an RNG to decide which side gets a point, the majority or the minority. Instead, you just need to consider what the other people could choose and make a wise choice.

PoV #8 Results

AdeebNafees and CowFriend tied… but CowFriend forgot the tiebreaker question. Thus, AdeebNafees wins the tie and now has the power to remove either LouWeed or CowFriend from the eviction ceremony OR not use the Power of Veto. Houseguest AdeebNafees, please note that if you choose to use the Power of Veto on one of our nominees, Woon1957 automatically moves into the eviction ceremony due to no other remaining Houseguests. You have time until 11th November, 2012 at 2:30 PM (GMT +3) to post your decision.

Oh well, couldn’t have gotten it anyways.

Seems like I and Louweed would make fine companions on a lunar voyage. On a happy note, my net connection works again, but it is slow as hell.

I’ll repay Woon for earlier by repeating what she said.

How about no

I haven’t been in this thread but I saw the title and thought “Nothing out of the ordinary here.”

It is only the Power of Veto challenge, buddy :p

Er, actually, on second thought, I like the sentiment associated with this comment ;D

I’m going to be away until Saturday. (That isn’t okay, is it? Could I get on my knees and beg, as well as apologize?)
Yeah, please quote this in all the games I’m in too. If I can finish this today it would be great(please happen)
