AdminShade September 12 2006 10:35 AM EDT

or five word letters...

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] September 12 2006 10:43 AM EDT

like... im "first" ?!?!?!

Godpanda September 12 2006 10:46 AM EDT

yeah I am lost here too.

how about Shade?

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] September 12 2006 11:02 AM EDT

Yehaw?

PirateKing September 12 2006 11:05 AM EDT

Not sure what you're wanting here, Shade. But I'll take a stab:


Gee, I see a jay?

Maelstrom September 12 2006 11:19 AM EDT

Queue? Q?

Caedmon [Revenge of the Forgers] September 12 2006 11:21 AM EDT

Bee, See, Jay, Are, Why.

AdminShade September 12 2006 11:22 AM EDT

*thinks people are thinking a tad wrong*

PirateKing September 12 2006 11:24 AM EDT

*thinks the contest sponsor is being overly cryptic*

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] September 12 2006 11:25 AM EDT

so help us think right

PirateKing September 12 2006 11:26 AM EDT

Now watch Bast traipse on in here and get it without so much as a yawn. :(

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] September 12 2006 11:55 AM EDT

aeiou?

Maelstrom September 12 2006 11:59 AM EDT

Aye Eee Eye Oh You?

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] September 12 2006 11:59 AM EDT

Dear shade, Good job. Slashundhack

I, eye, aye,....that's just 3 as well.

None of those can make 5 words! Boooooooo

"ghoti"

illiterates who have never read G.B.Shaw need not ask for explanations.

drudge September 12 2006 2:26 PM EDT

"RESET"

AdminShade September 12 2006 2:28 PM EDT

Hey, what fun is it to have a contest which is too easy to win.

G_Beee was close, but not entirely what I meant.
Read more closely what the entire message says...

Tezmac September 12 2006 2:59 PM EDT

Is this what you meant?
CURAB
OICUR
YRUAB
OABIC
OATIC
If not, I just wasted a lot of time, lol.

AdminShade September 12 2006 3:29 PM EDT

As I said, G_Beee didn't have it right, and you did waste a lot of time indeed...

QBJohnnywas September 12 2006 3:34 PM EDT

mmm....well there are five letters in the word 'word'

w, o, r, d - and U as in double U

AdminShade September 12 2006 3:42 PM EDT

nope...


Alright perhaps it is time for a big hint.

It does have to do with 5 letters fitting in a word, and 5 words making a letter.

How you do it is up to you, but I'm the judge

(BTW, that'S supposed to be an ASCII Y)

I don't know what that would look like if I converted it to HTML, so I'll just add this sentence.

Tezmac September 12 2006 4:42 PM EDT

Hmmm, how about the letters v-o-w-e-l (five letters in a word).
vow, ow, owl, love, wove (five words make a letter, a vowel?)

UncleKracker September 12 2006 5:13 PM EDT

Gee - A - Am - Am - A

I'm guessing some non-English letter's English name is spelled using the letters A C G I M N O P R U Y. That's always one direction someone could go. Only sharing because I don't care who solves it I want to know the answer.

Sorry if I missed it guys, but since when is "eee" a word?

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] September 13 2006 1:16 AM EDT

Five words in a letter would be a Note and notes is a five letter word so notes is the word!...?

[P]Mitt September 13 2006 1:18 AM EDT

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] September 13 2006 1:57 AM EDT

How about "Freek"...
No... sorry... :(

blackshadowshade September 13 2006 5:37 AM EDT

OK, let's try again. Again, I'll try ASCII graphics---best viewed in a fixed width font like Courier.

TrueDevil [AAA] September 13 2006 7:48 AM EDT

B = Bee
I = I
J = Jay
O = Owe
U = You

All the words sounded like a letter and the 5 letters make a word, and according to google, Bijou is a small and delicately worked piece and Bijou is french for 'jewel'.

Just guessing around.

AdminShade September 13 2006 8:22 AM EDT

please no ASCII graphics things... they are not what I meant.

Edyit is atm closest...

are you an ivy?

AdminShade September 13 2006 10:42 AM EDT

Sigh, I think I was too cryptic indeed.

Well:

Caedmon was the first to come up with 5 words...
G_Beee came with 5 words made out of 5 letters each, though not in the form I wanted it to be...
edyit then made a letter with 5 words made out of 5 letters each, closer even but not really functional yet...


So now for the actual 'assignment':

Write me a letter containing 5 words, while each word is made up out of 5 letters. The most original (or best fitting) letter wins.

The prize is yet unknown but will come from my own account.

Shade, every fight, kills slews.

Shade, alpha betas yield booze.

AdminNightStrike September 13 2006 12:15 PM EDT

Shade,

AdminNightStrike September 13 2006 12:16 PM EDT

(Ditto)

Shade,

Bilbo found seven rings today.

AdminNightStrike September 13 2006 12:23 PM EDT

Shade,

Break thine bonds often, silly.

Maize feels light, Judge Tommy.

AdminNightStrike September 13 2006 12:24 PM EDT

Now if only I could string these together to make a cohesive five-sentence letter, each made up of five words of five letters each. That'd be hot.

SNK3R September 13 2006 12:30 PM EDT

ROFL...

AdminNightStrike September 13 2006 12:45 PM EDT

Shade,

Bilbo found seven rings again. Their power grows great today. Inner chaos cooks birds alive. Sting emits light, quite aglow......

Radio Earth... death comes close.


Now THAT was interesting.... Ok, I'm done.

PirateKing September 13 2006 12:51 PM EDT

Shade,

Those lumpy boils oozed !

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] September 13 2006 6:00 PM EDT

That last one sounded venereal get it checked.

so far NightStrike is winning, but I will have a 2nd and 3rd place also!!!

keep them going!

Godpanda September 15 2006 10:21 AM EDT

How to beat NS? 5 paragraphs of 5 lines of 5 words with 5 letters. Yeah... not happening from me lol.

AdminShade September 15 2006 10:22 AM EDT

Who says he wins with that entry?

Godpanda September 15 2006 10:59 AM EDT

so far NightStrike is winning,

I know you said that lol.



Could fight never start death? Would human ashes renew world?
These query ideas worth scant. Human exist

got to go will finish later

QBBarzooMonkey September 15 2006 11:27 AM EDT

Okay, okay I didn't want to pull this one out, because it still makes a lot of you sad, but here is a copy of a letter sent to all the CB admins:

December 27, 2005

Shade -

Gamer fight query stops drive. Power grid's blown, shreds again. Kills might cause awful nerfs. Ideas aren't plain, undue grief. Looks awful - game's death today.

Ellis

Caedmon [Revenge of the Forgers] September 15 2006 12:04 PM EDT

Shade,

Maybe you've tried overt steps. Maybe you've tried faith. Facts state you're doing zilch. Abuse hurts. Cease these spams today.

Yours truly.

AdminNightStrike September 15 2006 2:27 PM EDT

"How to beat NS? 5 paragraphs of 5 lines of 5 words with 5 letters. Yeah... not happening from me lol."

hmm.........

That'd be fun.

AdminShade September 17 2006 1:15 PM EDT

letting this run for another 2 days, (until Tuesday). I will then have time to judge all the entries. :)

AdminShade September 24 2006 12:20 PM EDT

Oops forgot about this, will try to conclude it today.

AdminShade September 24 2006 12:51 PM EDT

Well it was hard for me, some of them were very funny!

#1 NightStrike:

Shade,

Bilbo found seven rings today.


#2 BarzooMonkey:

Shade -

Gamer fight query stops drive. Power grid's blown, shreds again. Kills might cause awful nerfs. Ideas aren't plain, undue grief. Looks awful - game's death today.

Ellis

#3 NightStrike:

Shade,

Bilbo found seven rings again. Their power grows great today. Inner chaos cooks birds alive. Sting emits light, quite aglow......

Radio Earth... death comes close.


I found NightStrike's first entry very amusing already and this was a sure winner.
BarzooMonkey's entry about the game falling apart was also hilarious
Then I picked another of NightStrike's entries because it was the first one to actually invent something I didn't think of yet.


#1 wins $50k
#2 wins $35k
#3 wins $15k

rest of the entries, by various people, who correctly made a sentence from 5 words containing 5 letters, get 5k for their trouble.

AdminShade September 24 2006 12:55 PM EDT

There: all $155k worth total of prizes have been sent.

AdminNightStrike September 24 2006 9:21 PM EDT

Thanks!

QBBarzooMonkey September 24 2006 11:32 PM EDT

Ooh, I just noticed this! Thanks, Shade! :)
