Yes the average is 20 posts a head over the month but it seemed harder than that.
There seemed to be a core of say 30 doing the hard yards down to the single entry posts
Stihl was worn out but he's coming back for more fun and enjoyment
Unlike Bert, I didn't write down my total before this thing began, but I believe I averaged around fifty posts per day during the three weeks I was in town. I'm always sorry to hear that someone was worn out - like Bert I found the whole thing to be a "blast" {as we American say}, and after "relaxing" these last two days of June I'll be eager to get going again.

Why do these join together all the time ???
I had just returned to the forums after some time away, made my first post to enter, and my friend Bob died. So the past few weeks have been... weird.

Hi Bunbles
Sorry to hear that.
Yes feeling weird is a pretty apt description.
Hope you can join in on all the posts in the future.

I will certainly do my best! I miss having a Pentax camera. I still have my favorite 50mm 1.4 Pentax lens at least. Just need to get a body for it

Hi reh321

Yes relaxing having a blast before the onslaught is a good idea
I"d expect Fozz to be doing the same,he had insane numbers.
Let the fun begin tomorrow, for us its the 30th already the day is almost half over

So 20:30 this evening, and 08:30 tomorrow morning Adelaide time. I'm on it!
So, even a half hour time offset - you really are a reality show run by NASA, aren't you?

You enter once - according to Adam you can only post once in the two threads. The system is supposed to be automatic from what he said, so if you get into the first 50 unique responses of the first thread you should be barred from posting in the second thread I as I understand it. In any case you are limited to one entry and all 100 valid entries will be used to generate the winner.

Only if you promise to upgrade your current one to a mark II.

So I guess the question is If you don't make the 50 in round one can you try again in round two ?
