OK, but please don't require anyone to record. They may not even have a microphone (be a straight DPL), or don't want to do it. ;)
Thinking of me? :wink: If I drop through, perhaps my penalty should be to DPL. :mrgreen:

I will pre-populate the MW with all the competitors as of the 31 Oct deadline, in order of your guesses, but will adjust as requested.
so who decides who has to read what ?

If that's what you MEANT, I'm OK with changing it.

By a curious twist of fate, we have just enough guessers at the contest deadline as we need to fill the alphabetically arranged stanzas of the tongue-twister project, with one of the guessers volunteering to step aside to DPL (thank you to RSlabaugh!) if they lose.

Why wait until New Year's Eve? Only one person will win, and you only have about a 4% change of it being you. Why not claim the next letter and record your twister stanza now?

(No one has to record for this is they don't wish - just let me know so I can arrange to substitute).

Thanks, Todd

Maybe you should post the project link to the first post too?
I guess we'll do the updating on the completed project numbers here rather than the project thread.

Great that we have just enough sections for everyone!
Cheers, Ava.

The Tongue-Twister project is at viewtopic.php?f=28&t=83481 . All recording claims, etc can be there.

Taunting of other contestants, etc, could stay in this thread.

Thanks, Todd

October ended up with 119 projects cataloged, so with 1 already for November, we're at 1109.

I may have guessed low. We'll see. :hmm:

:mrgreen:

I'm envisioning the contestants either prodding other readers to move faster with their projects or, conversely, telling them to slow down depending on the poster's final prediction :mrgreen:

Yeah - you all can ease up a little bit on your recordings, if you would be so kind. :lol:
