    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^I just noticed the "punchington" link. There was a similar phenomenon in my college town, a dude with a T-shirt-mask was popping up sucker-punching people for almost a week. His spree reportedly ended abruptly when he attacked an amateur MMA fighter and ended up in the hospital.You said time was infinite, so why the watch wrapped around your wrist?

    ^ So, all you need to do to hold up the game is just claim you know where a given tag is? *raises eyrbrow*All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    FTFY, and yes, I concur.

    I'd like to see a little uniformity in the clue-giving department. 24 hours passes, a clue is requested, a clue is given. They can be totally cryptic clues, they don't have to lead a person right to the spot... just something to work with.

    In the Comm Ave case, I realized my instinct was right... the only place I could think of with a grass "verge" like that, with two panels of pavement between sidewalk and street, was Comm Ave between Packards Corner and Allston St. Sure enough! Also, it occurred to me grdnstfmnd might know where it is because he lives near there, and looking around in the forums I surmised he may live in that area of Allston (and Marianna mentioned whats-it-called terrace btwn Brainerd and Brookline, figured it might be near there).

    Look at that shit. No hint required, just a little crackerjack gumshoein'!You said time was infinite, so why the watch wrapped around your wrist?
  8.  
    I respect the complaint, and apologize that my refusal to give a clue was itself outside the 24 hour time limit. I was busy drankin.

    BUT in my defense, Cheez did identify the location aloud immediately (I guess this was available information before I made the hint-later post, but still!), and I apparently gave a hint while offering to give a hint later. Related question: The 24 hour bit isn't on the rules page, are we using that just cause I said I would? Or is it somewhere else?

    Also: if requests for hints are indirect "votes" that it's too hard, why can't "i know where this is" be an indirect vote that it's not?i mean that looks like a 10 cat bag, easy
  9.  
    Don't mind my fussin'. It was tough but distinctive enough (although I still can't find it on google, even knowing where it is and that there's also a ladybug).

    I suppose we've never nailed down any kind of rule about when a clue is given to the point that it made the list of actual rules there was just an informal agreement of sorts that people wait at least 24 hours before requesting a clue, and that clues only be given when requested... in this case i think it might be hard to give a clue that was helpful that didn't give away the cake anyway.

    ooooo, good pics. but yeah, i defaulted to "board consensus" in the first page. i think that still applies here for any disputes.

    REFUSAL TO GIVE HINT MAKE HULK MAD. YOU NOT LIKE MAD HULK. MAD HULK FIND TAG AND MOVE NEW TAG TO WEIRD LOCATION.

    Yeah, my vote is for a hint after 24 hours, IF requested.

    So...no one wants a clue?

    Sure, I'll take a clue....but little chance of me tagging anything until Monday. (If you havn't noticed by now, I'm usually out-of-game-commisssion on weekends).All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    1st clue: The city or town it is located in is the county seat (of its county, not that counties mean much in eastern MA).

    2nd clue: when it was built, it was not located in the county seat.

    [we never actually established what happens if no one gets a tag after one clue, for now I'm going to keep giving follow-up clues every 24 hours or so until someone gets it. I have a # of clues up my sleeve

    ETA: as of tomorrow I think I'm going to speed up the giving of clues, that should move things along a little, and yes, I know, it was the weekend and people work/have lives/this one was kinda hard... THE HULK made me do it].

    well that could be in any number of outlying Boston neighborhoods.Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    Would it help if I told you there's a cupola on top of it?

    Since my bike is out of commission for a day or two, can I get points by tagging with a 6-pack of PBR...or razor scooter... instead of a bike? :PAll you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    The rule only says it must be on the same ride, it says nothing about order in which they were shot. You're golden Jimmy.
