    The drunk thread will open when Blue Dog opens it. He will do it whenever he feels like it, as usual. This happens on Friday sometime usually.

    The drunk thread will close whenever somebody - often Chater - closes it. He will do it whenever he wants, as usual. This happens on Monday sometime usually.

    The reason I chose this is because I do not want any fucking retarded PMs about "so when you say Midnight is that Midnight Eastern or like at the International Date Line? And what about daylight savings time? What about leap seconds?" FUCK OFF.

    I am a computer scientist. I am going to use a simple algorithm. I am going to look at the drunk thread when it closes. Anything posted on the Suggestion Board between the first post time and the last post time will run. Anything posted outside that window will be treated as an ordinary suggestion and will be reviewed for potential posting after the contest.

    If nearly four days is not enough to post your brilliant thread idea and you start bitching about how the drunk thread closed too early and you missed your chance, you are too dumb to post here. As a moderator, I can make that dream a reality for you. Don't make me.

    This will be a massacre. I know that I, personally, only come up with thread ideas when I'm shitfaced (and it shows).

    I am not worried. Like Jon Favreau in PCU the likely outcome of trying to do something useful while shitfaced is that you will pass out and wake up after it's too late. Unless George Clinton gets lost, your impact will be minimal.

    THE GAME OF THREADS HAS ENDED

    Oh, did you think I forgot? I did not. I am like an elephant.

    Overall, we had a couple great threads, a few bad ones, and a lot of good ones. Proportionally, about average for TiB, but the quantity went up greatly without compromising quality. I would like to thank everyone for their submissions!

    As a reminder, the awesome threads get a good prize, the terrible threads get a bad prize, and the OK threads get a set of steak knives...that is, no prize.

    TEH WINNAR

    • WINNER OF THE GAME OF THREADS AWARD: Goes to Volo, for the Dirty Secrets Thread. Eight glorious pages of revelations and awkwardness; a true TiB moment. Congratulations, Volo! You may select the new tagline for the board until Chater gets tired of it and changes it back.
    • THE THREAD THAT WILL NOT DIE AWARD: Goes to Crown Royal, for the Hitting the Town Thread. This was pretty much an average thread but just about every time it looked totally dead some TiBber would bump it to the top. Impressive. You get +10 rep for a thread that trickled out posts like an old man's dick trickles out urine.
    • THE PREMATURE EPOSTULATION AWARD: Also goes to Crown Royal, for the Rant and Rave Thread, Visualized. This thread was so great that it actually became a new TiB permanent thread! Sadly, it was posted minutes before the start of the contest and is not eligible at all for prizes. So, Crown, for this thread, you get NOTHING.

    TEH LOZAR

    • THE READING IS FUNDAMENTAL AWARD: Goes to Dcc001, for the religion thread. Even though shegirl explicitly banned religion threads, somebody had to go and post one anyway. And it had to be locked, what a surprise. Because this was a violation of shegirl's rule, she gets to pick the prize. DEVELOPING...
    • THE SAD TROMBONE AWARD: Goes to KImaster, for the Sidney Lumet Memorial Thread. A total of 5 on-topic posts. I am not sure what prize to give KImaster for this, but I have some ideas. Do you have ideas? Post them here.
    • THE SAD, JUST SAD AWARD: Goes to Hotwheelz for his thread whose only purpose was to hate on me. I give him credit, though, it got more action than the Sidney Lumet memorial thread. Hotwheelz escapes punishment from me because I can't bring myself to do anything bad to him that the universe already hasn't. However, I cannot speak for the other admins.
    • THE "REALLY? REALLY?" AWARD: Goes to Nettdata for the shit thread, which was both shit and about shit. I have no power over Nett, so he will have to punish himself. I'm sure scootah can give him suggestions.

    That's all, folks. Feel free to suggest prizes for those that haven't yet been decided, or make a case that some thread or other should have made one of the lists. Again, thanks to all who contributed!

    Heh, I must say I'm surprised my thread even took off. Props to everyone who posted a dirty secret, and flying dropkicks to the head for those who did nothing but criticize.

    Anyways, keep the tagline the same. It's good as is and describes our fucked up little family well.

    Cheers!

    Psh, Fry. You're just afraid of the swift retribution that I would hit you with.

    *sigh* Hopefully shegirl will go easy on me on my birthday. In my defense, it lasted three pages longer than I thought it would.

    No love for the "Rant and Rave Visualized" thread? That made it to the permanent section! It should get some kind of award.

    Or, change his rep point settings so that no matter how he reps, they're both green dots.

    Just take away his ability to give anyone rep points, green or red, if at all possible. If you just change it to only green dots, he'd still rep people to call them fucking idiots or insult them, even if it'd give them green dots. He really only uses the reputation function to insult people, anyway.

    *Cue red dot from KIMaster*

    The truth is, the RRV thread is not deserving of a reward because truthfully it is not my original idea. Members of the original RRMB Probably recall that is was Max's regulator/replacement Benson who posted this thread on the old board, and not myself.

    I'm glad people on here loved the thread and now it's here to stay, but I can't in good conscience take credit for it.

    If you want to "reward" me for it, then reward us all by joining the upcoming long weekends into one large drunk thread. It's all about togetherness.

    This has to be the gayest post in the history of this board.
