ATTENTION HOUSEMATES
« on: 27 May, 2003, 04:09:55 PM »
I don't know if anyone has volunteered to be BB or set you a task, but if they haven't then I am up for the job (just now anyway) cos I have thought of a task based on the telly programme.

Your job, starting at noon GMT on Monday 26th May, is to start posting messages to a thread headed "BB TASK 1". These must be posted CONTINUALLY until noon GMT on noon GMT Thursday 29th May. There may be no more than 10 minutes between posts.

Any questions, post here.

You have until noon today to clarify the rules of the task.

Failure means I get one of the prizes.

I would suggest other non housemates are given the opprtunity to come up with future tasks, based on the ones on the programme, and that they get a prize if the task is failed.

Or else I'll stay BB.

Whaddya fink?

If you want to ask me a question during my tenure as BB, please post to this thread. Unless I'm stealing someone else's thunder here, that is.

I "fink" you get no prizes at all. They're ours, you pirate.

Secondly, how can we start the task yesterday?

OK, fine - start today then. You saw through my cunning plan to get a prize.

From today until Friday GMT for the postings.

Do you mean we have to collectively post every 10 minutes, or individually? We don't all have f*** all else to do, you know ;)

One post by one housemate every ten minutes.

Sort it out amongst yourselves. Do a rota. Take an hour each and agree to do one six posts. Frankly, Big Brother doesn't care how you do it.

But that's the task.

You expect us to do this round the clock for 3 whole days?

Er, is this going to be just on one thread or are you going to attempt to sink the messageboard into a sea of off-topic gibberish?

You have a problem with that? Think of the prizes!

On reflection, though, I'll reduce it to 48 hours. If it helps, the start can be at 5pm tonight. That way you can arrange it with your fellow housemates, and finish on Thursday so that Friday can be eviction day.

There is to be one thread, subject: "BB Task 1". Any messages posted by a housemate on ANY other thread (by accident or otherwise) or in the chatroom will not count towards the task.

You can start it when you like, at any time between noon today and 5pm today. It must run for 48 hours.

hmmm... d'you reckon we could cobble a time machine together out of kitchen implements? I've got no desire to be sitting at my pc at 4 o'clock in the morning just to satisfy Dr X's enigmatic laboratory shennanigans.

Someone send me an e-mail when the Big Brother thing is over, don't think my inbox will take the impending rush of posts that are about to come its way.
