We should have a sticky(ed) thread where each post is a separate challenge and the post has a list of all of the entries, and a "winner". We can then modify each entry as more challengers post their entries. That is the only decent way I can think of to keep track of all of them.


This^.

Ideally the challenges should be more accessible to newer members if thatís an option.

Also, prizes would be cool for bigger challenges.

And , because I am a total nerd, ranks as people pass certain challenges they can go up in pretend internet rank. Again, nerd, so this comment was inevitable.  Cheesy

I agree somewhat.

Iím proud that this thread has survived the whole time since I posted it but perhaps itís time to make a dedicated thread for each challenge.

But I also canít let it go , ha ha

I think this thread is fine to introduce challenges, but for those who want to see a quick summary and don't want to wade through 30 pages of posts, another summary thread would be perfect.  It makes it really easy to watch all the entries that way too and might get more visitors to the site interested in slinging.

I think a completely separate board for online challenges would work the best.  Then there could be a separate topic for each challenge.  Which would allow for discussion, rules, etc.  But all the challenges would be listed together in one place.

We definitely shouldn't let this thread die. It's too iconic now Cheesy I'll be attempting the nail challenge soon and I might have another go at cycling and slinging. I did ok with it but I feel I could do a bit better now I know what's required to make it work. Should be getting my bike fixed tomorrow so hopefully it won't be too long until I get that done.

Yeah boy!!!!
Thatís awesome!!
Great slinging, Iím going to have to get out there soon!
Those hits looked awesome!!
Great job on challenges so far!!



How did I miss this?!

"Yeah boy" literally came out of my mouth as I watched your video Joe. Noice! you got the split ice ball from the hit for real this time.

I'm gonna have to try this. The frisbee hit sounds like a fun one too. I was wondering if I could get a mini-disc and dual-sling to try and get an aerial hit (Thanks for the suggestion Mersa, it may not have been this thread). I guess I'll have to try.

Also, NOOC, just so you know, your post did not go unappreciated. I love that sketch and it was a well-placed post.

Thanks!† I had to look back through the thread to see which one that was.† Cheesy

The coin hit was definitely a tough one.† After not getting a hit on my first attempt, it's the first challenge I recall having the thought 'I might not get this'.† But the second attempt went much better.† I do love the aerial challenges.

Yeah I agree the coin challenge was super fun , really any of the aerial challenges have been fun. I also really love the pumpkin Halloween challenges because itís almost based on destruction and those buggers can be tough. Already got plans for this yearís Halloween challenge.

Joe has kept me working since he joined this thread!!

Ha! It doesnít bother me if a post is noticed or not. I post my nail-related content in confidence, because I know that I am holding the #1 spot in the nail challenge... we just wonít mention that I am also dead last because there are no other entries Grin
