    IMHO - the way we did it last year worked very well. Like they say 'if it aint' broke don't fix it'.

    If you are looking for the team to vote on how we would like things done.

    here's mine:

    Tweleve Pack
    gabi and sluggy submit guesses
    I would like to be a helper on the team

    Sounds good to me also.

    The setup last year was ok, but I have a suggestion. If there are going to multiple people that can submit guesses (and I think there should be), they should be spaced out to get as much guess uptime as possible. I know that I get frustrated if I'm up late and "think" that I have a solution, but have to wait 4-6 hours until someone that can submit a guess is conscious; and by that time, I'm asleep. There could even be shifts to take the load off of any given individual, e.g., three people with 8 hour shifts or four people with 6 hour shifts.

    Registration is open.

    They have changed the rule about real names slightly: "In order to be eligible for prizes, at least one member of your team must be available to physically collect the prize at the presentation ceremony, and that member (and preferably your whole team) must be using his or her real name."

    So I would suggest the following, we register a team with 9 members leaving 1 position opened in case we need to use it to collect a prize and everybody can choose which name they want to use (only the person in Melbourne would need to use their real name). Remember that we are all part of the same team whether our name is in the MUMs site or not.

    Updated list:
    - andersonwang
    - pianoman
    - sslug
    - j15bell (would like to be a helper)
    - Molnar
    - mimi
    - marD
    - Gamepro
    - net
    - Mark13
    - gabi
    - greenprincess

    I like Molnar suggestion of covering as much guess uptime as possible. To Jean's vote for sluggy and me submitting guesses I would add Molnar (so we have people on both coasts). That is if sluggy wants to repeat, Molnar wants to do it and nobody else has a problem with it.

    I am trying to put the finishing touches on the wiki for this year's hunt. Acknowledging that I have little to no artistic vision and even less artistic talent, I am putting out a call for ideas and/or product.

    I am looking for two things:
    1) wiki logo - this appears at the top left of every wiki page, and provides a link back to the Main Page. Nominal size 135x135 px (maximum 150x150 px).

    2) wiki banner - this will appear at the top of the Main Page. Maximum dimensions: height, 150px; width, 750px.

    It would be nice to have something that reflected Tweleve, MUMS and/or the team name (which I presume will be Tweleve Pack).

    Thanks!

    Can't be more difficult than dressing the sluggy. What exactly did you have in mind?

    Have chatted with cthree, he is setting up a sub-forum for us. If there is anyone else out there that wants to help, you need to say so and we will add your name to the list for forum access.

    I don't have anything particular in mind, I'm just not very enthusiastic about what I have now.

    So MUMS starts in 10 days, so it is about time to register the team.

    The list of people who want to help is:
    - andersonwang
    - pianoman
    - sslug
    - j15bell
    - Molnar
    - mimi
    - marD
    - Gamepro
    - net
    - Mark13
    - gabi
    - greenprincess

    With one position open for the "person in Melbourne", we can register up to 9 people. Again being registered or not doesn't make any difference, we are all the same team.

    So we need a name (it can be a nickname) and email for 9 of the members of the team. Who really wants to be registered? who doesn't mind one way or the other?

    If you don't want to post your email address in the forum you can PM it to me and I will collect them. Anybody in the team last year can tell you I haven't been filling their inbox with spam since then

    I will help. I never know if or when I will be called to work or for how long. Don't need to be registered with mums. But also do not mind giving up my real name or email addy if you need that. So if you are short just let me know. Guess the bottom line is it doesn't make a difference to me as I don't think it really matters who is registered or not except for the melbourne person.
