Hotbox's day count is fine. I made the mistake not him, so he can't be penalized. If anyone disagrees, too bad. My decisions are final and the next person to complain will be penalized

You can start today. You'll get a head start and can be on Day 75. Follow the style that the other contestants have been using, such as army, or look at older posts to see the pattern. Make sure to follow today's specific directions.

Go back and look over the older post from the past 4 or 5 days. You will find the directions there.

[QUOTE=mmbtvs;4629609]Okay folks this is how it will work. It's actually really simple. Every day after that (going by EST) you must quote your previous post and add day 2, and so forth.

If you edit any of your posts you have to start over. If you miss a day, you need to start over.


I may change some rules along the way if something is brought to my attention that I did not think of at this moment.

7/16 - Say something nice about one of your least favorite members of the forum in your signature. The compliment must remain there until 7/21 and not a single day longer without a 5 day penalty given to your total up to that point.

Since he posted yesterday BEFORE you granted him the extra day (which was suppose to be for yesterday) it should be invalid now I would think. He should have messaged you and cleared it up before posting

Yes I'm in it to win it guys!!!
Day 104

Depends on the card. Thinner cards no, team bag with decoys or extra base on the outside is good enough. Thicker cards, yes BUTTTTTT I only use painters tape (it doesn't stick to the toploader)

Can we used banned members in our signature? Most of my least favorite members are now banned.
Day 105.

I put tape on just about all my toploaders when I'm shipping. I put the toploader between two decoys and in a teambag, but the top of the card could still slip out. If you have a problem with tape on a toploader, then you are a BD. So I say yes.

Day 92. Armyatc22 pretty much says it best but since I have to write my own answer here it is....

...i can go both ways on this. In my experience the mid-high end stuff like Tribute/Chrome, whatever dont slip out if its in the appropriate sized toploader. Cards like your regular base Topps do tend to slip out every once in a while so thats when tape is most appropriate

So once again, I go both ways when it comes to toploaders and tape.....
