You are not allowed to use such a cool name unless you can stick with it and bring the fun.

Too much effort spent to keep this bastard in sight to let it go down the drain. :wink:


In sight? 2.5 months behind and you call that in sight?!?! :lol:

If we were to have a temp race, it'd be after the Chimp Challenge anyways....lots can change in that time, there, Juice...you might even gain a day or two on me! :P
I'll echo those sentiments. I'm on N1K's threat list as well, and JJ up there has got to be seeing glimpses of me in his rear view mirror as well.

I'd be for a go of it after the CC. Are we trying to simply out-ppd da Fed, or are we reaching for their total points position?

My suggestion for a team name would have been "bush_meat" for those who don't know that's ROASTED PRIMATE!

I recently heard mention of "creamsicles" as a collective name? Different variations also suggested for our team for the CC. Apparently, that's a nickname dubbed to the MaxPC team by the w[H]ores.

I kind of like that name in the spirit of this new collective rivalry, which is sure to drive this team into overtaking the little w[H]ores. I really couldn't think of a better way of driving a stake into them than by this new user name driving the team to the overtake......

.....and putting some monkey tails between their legs!

There has been some little speck I see pop up back there, but it typically fades back out of site. :D

Well, trying to out-ppd them could cause a perpetual race, or more likely a really short one :P. And tackling their total points from scratch with a 34 million deficit is a little ambitious, unless you want to go in for the long-haul. A timelier approach would be something like a week or month long race, where the most points within that time wins. Basically Chimp Challenge style except with a time-frame instead of a point-goal.

Heh, I Google imaged bush meat to get some emblem ideas, but it was actually a bit too sad. :lol:

Anything that increases our overtake and spites monkeys is a win. :D

See, another point in favor of creamsicles.

EVERYBODY loves to eat 'em (honestly, does anyone really enjoy eating monkeys?).
Image

Even the late, great Dr. MLK dreamed about them
Image

Someone mentioned the new collective needing to be able to drink?
Well, here's a creamsicle martini:
Image

.....and we'll even have chicks wrapping us around them:
Image
(ummm, I guess the color is called creamsicle?) Image

Aside from how wonderful creamsicles are, How could you not be struck with fear, by a band of well equipped warriors running at you, screaming:
FEAR US! For we are: CREAMSICLES!!

.....and while they're laughing Image we take away their bananas and reconfigure their machines to fold for creamsicles

With bbies, yoda, whutshisname, avanish and myself, that's just about 70k PPD. If Newbie was in, 87k, and I believe Gigabyte said somewhere he wouldn't mind stirring up the monkeys. He would have us at a respectable 142K, only 10K shy of the monkey's current output. It's a little early to start talking rules and stuff with CC still around the corner, but do you think the Creamsicles (tentative) should have some kind of member cap or recruit requirements? Or just a free-for-all, pick your side, throwdown?

Heh, I think we need to have this discussion after the challenge. People will be adding points and machines just for this challenge, myself included. You may be in for a bigger shock than you think.

However, I do think that we should keep this race close. I'm not concerned with the number of users, but I think we should keep the PPD somewhat close. Are you guys in this for the long haul or just for a week or two of fun? That may have some bearing on our thoughts as well.

I might be interested in joining in this silliness of poo flinging and creamsicle, um, inserting? :shock:

I'm kicking out around 12 or 13 k a day, over 300k on the month so far. Would that help?

It HAS to be creamsicles.

Check it out, here!


As for a duration, I say we go atleast until Max PC overtakes the w[h]ores! Although I'm positive that we're going to be having so much fun that we'll keep it going even longer.

Another reason why having this collective will be good for the team - look at how may top 20 spots will open up for other members :wink:

I think after the challenge is over and you all see how much PPD we really added you will change your minds. Remember, if we can do it once we can do it again. :lol:

I'm certainly glad that I didn't look at that one at work. Someone might have reported me.

I do like the images of the "creamsicle" snakes. If that name sticks for the collective, I might have to take one of those for my Avatar :twisted:

Hmmmm... I might just be able to add those 10,000 PPD you're all looking for, but I'd have to be talked into it. LOL

Might be just enough to rile things up.

Yes, I'm totally mercenary these days.
