The 2021 2000AD Messageboard Advent Calendar
« on: 30 November, 2021, 02:54:54 PM »
I've not seen anything along these lines suggested for this year, but wouldn't there normally be an announcement about the advent calendar by now?  'Lovely' Pete Wells is a bit busy this year (announced why on Facebook but I can't remember if it was for public consumption or not, so I won't go in to specifics here, but it's good news for Pete) so I can see why there hasn't been anything so far.


With nine hours until December it's a bit short notice (as opposed to the week or two usuall) but here's a list of numbers for people to reply and fill in with their names.  For myself I'll do what I did last year and post daily translations of 2000AD blurbs (so I won't put my name down on any particular day).

He's the new CEO of Greggs, isn't he…? They foolishly introduced a "Get one share in the company for every ten steak bakes purchased" loyalty scheme and he had a controlling interest in the business in under a year.

No problem it was super easy, barely an inconvenience* (I copied and pasted what Pete posted from a previous year and wrote a bit at the beginning).  Certainly agree about the deadline thing - I've volunteered myself to do 25 of those translations.  I have ten already (of varying quality) and have to go through the process of translating the rest - which might sound easy but to get something that's a) not immediately obvious and b) entertaining can take some work* :)


* spot the reference!
** using a very lax definition of the word 'work' here, obviously.

Never participated in this before but l'd been  working on a couple of things in anticipation. So I can do the 1st & 2nd to give some breathing  space for others.
Do i just post on this thread  tomorrow or will  you create  a specific one?

Good question - I'm new to this but it seems to be tradition to have an advent calendar thread and then a comments thread - or am I getting mixed up with the art competitions?   I guess they're similar in many ways so it looks like I'll be starting two new threads tomorrow!

I'll reply to Colin's calendar adding your name...

Trooper McFad can I be cheeky and share 2nd - what I have is neither 2000ad or X-Mas but I will make clear when I post why its very fitting - in the YNWA Household anyway for the calendar. So am I okay to share the slot?
