The rules are very simple. If it were any simpler it wouldn't be a competition.

Social comp doesn't mean it has to be a sloppy comp.

I do agree that it shouldn't be hard to remember to include the paper in the brag mat photo. But I can understand that it can be hard to accept that reasoning with examples from previous comps:

Don't recall if anyone appealed that one Jer.

But there won't be any more leeway re inclusion of the month's newspaper.

Only allowance I am currently making with measuring is that NT Govt size stickers can be used as long as it can be seen that the sticker hasn't been chopped in the middle.

Other measuring devices, asides from branded brag mats, are not a goer.

Can u see that with your xray vision there Matt as it's underneath the fish in that pic ?

Like i already said unlikely it has an issue, but even less unlikely my tapemeasure is out :roll:

Not having a go at you Matt. Rules are rules. But they have been stretched more than once in this comp. I could have put the fish back on the mat, but it would have been void anyway as it’s throat was slit. :naughty:

Anyway, anyone who knows me, knows I wouldn’t try to cheat in a comp on a forum that I have been a member of for more than ten years. One might call it an honest mistake.

So to the bloke who appealed it. :fubird:

Bye bye. That’s all she wrote.

No one thinks you are cheating Scott. Tiz a technicality.

Taking a relaxed approach earlier was obviously my bad.

Sorry about the tape Flicken.

Meanwhile, to everyone else, fish on!

One last comment....

This forum used to be about sharing knowledge and helping each other out. Hell, you guys used to be tight enough to set up and sink artificial reefs together! No easy feat.

For someone to be petty enough to have a winge and actually protest my entry, that tells me it ain’t what it used to be around here! Which I knew already. Call it the straw that broke the camels back.

All the best to the good c$&ts on here! There’s still a few around.
