So what do we do now???

Just another thought from the sidelines...

What do we do???

Yes as I said, other games do have this in their game or rules, but I find no such thing here. The blockhead was added much later in the game and was soon lost and even when the first player to not get the blockhead posted his TAG the game went on... He just added a chicken for some reason.

So I still say here who gets the real TAG at this point??? I know both players will do a good job with it, but I just think it needed to be said here at some point.

What is the rule in this game? Here in Alabama it is first to post... So in that case the token does not mean a thing other than somebody got there before you did and took the token away and it might not have even been a real player at that...

Again just my thoughts on this.

First to post takes out the possibility of outside interference for sure......

Token thought/business opportunity

The chicken thing is fun I have been a supporter of some kind of token to play the game with. But as many things I like they are not for general consumption. I like the first to post rule. It keeps civillians out of the game and moves the game faster. It may be "safer" to have chicken in hand and cruise slowly back home with yer bruce insurance. Rather than having to haul butt back to yer computer to post. Now for business. I wonder if there would be any interest for proposing a form of sponsorship for this kind of thing. I bet if someone were to try and show this intrest we all have in the game to the people who we get supplies from I.e. Tires, oil, parts,3g phone, and insureance. Maybe as a group we could fenagle a discount. If who ever supports this forum is not pursuing this they could be missing out. I guess the first thing to do is get rules standardized maybe this is what stage this game is in. I'm having fun riding. Thanks and keep playing. Warning the views expressed by killergumby are random and not completely thought out.

You are new here, and may not have noticed the utter and complete lack of ANY ads on ADVrider. That is one of the things that makes this place special. Baldy, the site owner, is fully aware of the money that could be had by allowing ads, but chooses to give us this place to play ad-free.

You may have also noticed that Baldy does not charge for use. You can be sure that this place ain't cheap to run and maintain. So while it is not required, donations are always welcome.

Ok, here's my officially official ruling :

1) In this instance only, since there was no previous rule, The current tag owner will be left up to motomark39 (unless he wishes to decline that responsiblilty, he can PM me). If he wants the tag, it's his; if he wants to keep the chicken in play, then he can give the tag to Merkur Man.

2) From now on, first to post the tag gets the tag regardless of having the chicken/blockhead/whatever.

Thanks for the answer...

Oh great and powerful Thread Master thank you for your answer to my question and the one in the back of a few other players minds I'm sure.

We all play nice in the sand box and we might get more new toys to play with and things to learn about along the way...

So here we go again, let's see what happens today, and let the game go on... and on... and on!!!

Let's Play Ball, no I mean TAG your it!

Oh what a tangled web we weave...



I like the "chicken/blockhead" pickup/delivery game. Because, I like the idea of not getting Bruced by technology, and being able to enjoy the ride home "stress free". However, the "first to post/no chicken required rule" seems to have kept the AL TOR pretty straight forward and simple, with few matters of confusion. However, however, IMHO, the tagger who holds the chicken obviously was there first, and has the "proof of life" in hand, and maybe shouldn't be punished for the posting delay. After all, he did ride to the location, grab the chicken, and post the pic. Should there be a time limit from "chicken grab to pic posted" intervals? I think NOT! Most unfortunately, the "first to post rule" opens up the potential for the interjection of "imitation" idols, thus possibly devaluing said idol. Or most disturbingly, the utter disrespect and shunning of the poor fowl all together! I like the idea of an idol traveling, very possibly, all over this great nation. However SQUARED...the idol does present it's own problems with "outsiders" thugging the bird/blockhead and adding kinks, as is evidenced by the loss/demise of blockhead. Furthermore, I agree the idol may be kept moving by sending it to a state that has an active TOR, however- infinitely, I also agree it seems to have stalled the Al TOR (check the forum...crickets, crickets, crickets...). Conversely, I believe sending the NA tag to a state that does not currently have a TOR, might encourage participation within said state, and, simply put, get more people out riding! In conclusion...can't we all just get along!!!

Just sayin'

Moto's spokesman

I spoke to Motomark this morning and made him aware of Blinkerfluids official ruling. He is on shift today (24 hours) and ask me to pass along to Merkur Man his claim to the tag in hopes that he will be able to take the chicken some place far far away. So...Merkur Man, on behalf of Moto, it is your tag. Game on!

I agree, getting the chicken was a driving force for me and the munchkin to go get it, once we got it the wife thought it would be a blast for the family to come up with the next tag and all of us ride out and get it. Chicken kinda drawed us into this one, it is kinda that extra added little touch to the game!

Well I have nothing against having the chicken in the game, however I based my decision on the fact that the game did not start with a mascot.. However, rules can change so if the general concensus turns out to be that he/she with the mascot owns the tag, then I will change the ruling to reflect that.. For now we don't have to worry about it though.

Thanks to MotoMark, this end of the world catastrophy's averted. Whew, that was close.

Seriously, I appreciate a ruling by Blinkerfluid and understand the logic. But the problem is that those with I-phones (or whatever) who can shoot a photo and post it from the site have bought themselves a technology advantage. The game is about the ride, not seeing who can get the fastest internet access. The token also let's people know the tag's been taken. So I also appreciate Blinkerfluid's offer to change the rule and would really appreciate putting it up to a vote somehow.

Keeping it simple, I'd vote that the rule should be the first photo with the token gets the tag. If you get there and there's no token, you can still post a "bruced" photo. If the token was stolen/taken by critters/etc, the first "bruced' photo gets it.

I like the idea of the token to know who got to the tag first and it gives some time for that person to get a new tag spot without rushing to get home. I was going to see if the HR TOR guys would like to do the same.
