    Huoommmm …. thanks, Master Caster … but: no.
    That riddely things will start in late October … rhuoommm … I cannot haste, as you know …. huommm … before that some things have to be settled, as Master Gildor complained about the way riddles have been put a year ago … rhuommm … and he was right with that … see, I simply tried to find a fair way to put them riddles … huoommm … but very difficult that is, believe me …. huoommm … imagine, when you go sleeping, The Man in the Dark wakes up … hom … so what could be fair? … I don’t wan’t to have you all these PCs (personal chaoses) being switched on all day … rhuoomm … then I do not want to disturb anyone’s sleep while others have been busy for hours … so, tell me what to do as I want to be fair …. rhuoommm
    (nay, this is not the first riddle though it is one) … hom

    about your dilemna master theobald I suggest one idea : you warn us one day or two before putting the riddle… and you allow for a total 24hours of answering so that all timezones have a chance to answer it. Indeed that leave quite a lot of time to answer correctly…you just have to do more questions if need be to be able to select a winner…… mmhh ok, that’s not really optimal…
    I’ll think about it a bit more :)

    Well, Master Gildor,
    I think you understood my problem well. I think your idea of announcing the exact date for the first question of the riddle before it is put makes some sense, as then there’s that 24 hours for everybody on this globe having a real chance to answer without setting the clock at a time he/she doesn’t want to wake up. That’s a good idea (though I tried to avoid this problem with my last years riddle for quite a while – or was anybody able to guess about the horses of the chariot?)
    So, simply the riddle must be that ridiculous, that again time will not matter – may there be 24 hours or a day or even more. All this leaves me alone with putting the riddle as fair as I can.
    So I will try to do again.
    If anyone around here gives me a go, or even agrees, I might start at the Ent of October … but I cannot haste everything, as you know ….

    This is nice formulated, Master Maenas. :)
    Today I sat in my favourite Café having a strong Mauro (famous italian café-Mistress Wendy should know this . . . ) and one of this legendary chech beer and
    similar words flew to my mind while watching at the colours of the trees . . . It was cold.

    Thank you all for your replies. – So I will try. Rhuoommm … hard work that is, believe me.
    Anyway, please give me at least one more week, which really is a very short time as you know, to think more thouroughly about all this … rhuoommm … there has to be a prize … there has to be a riddle, maybe more … there are time zones … alas, so much to consider … rhuoomm …

    I think Christmas is approaching and Master Theobald is nervous thinking that you even think of new decorations for the Pony ….:D
    We are very mindful of the coming days ….;)

    Alright, as I do not want to exclude anybody for not being able to take part in this because of some missing internet-access I will post my first question here November 15 this year.
    I’d rather prefer that 24 hours time-space Master Gildor suggested for answering each question as it might fit the sun’s turning around the globe. This means that within 24 hours we’ll see some answers. Then there’s to decide which are right, which are wrong, and which of the right were first. – Is that right, does that meet your agreement?
    That does not mean that a question can be answered in 24 hours, of course, as you might know.
