POTD Match Game

New thread as off shoot of the POTD thread. First poster posts an image of choice: everyone else for that day tries to match it.

As we have already seen, the "subject" of any starter image is quite open to interpretation, so there is plenty of room for variations.

Update after a few weeks of use!

(The "Starter Picture" is valid for 24 hours fro m when it is posted, no matter what time it is posted.) Changed 7 December 2012 as follows:

The starter pic gets 25 hours (as opposed to 24) so that the starter posting time moves forward in time each day whether someone snipes or not.

The same person may not "start" consecutive days unless it goes to 26 hours without a new starter.

There was some talk of limiting any single poster to two starts a week, but I think that is not needed at this point. Don't want to get overly regulated... always a tricky balance you know...

No "catching up" If you miss, you miss! Join in where we are.

More will be noted here as needed and decided by the group: I technically started this thread but it was not my idea and I am not the boss of it!

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".
