If this competition is coming down to who can post first (terrible idea) but the site itself needs to be more reliable. Just counting in my head, when I click my home page its taking around 9 seconds to load the page.

It isn't based on site time as I know the tracking is off a bit, but calling it here then sending an email for verification will time stamp in my inbox. That is as reliable as we can get, when the card is in, and validated. I have two for 4 already and one for 406.

There isn't any other way to do it, other than sending in via email. My computer time, synced up with my email is what we have.
Video games are like life, difficult, frustrating, but most of all, they're fun and rewarding when you slow down and enjoy them.
N1ghtmare, all you need to do is re-send what you already sent me, right? Go to your phone, email and resend. Winning!

Yes, you need to send an email so I can know what VINGO you have and see if it matches up.

Since the round started at 0900 today, officially, it was a normal VINGO. I have 3 VINGO's called so far (Kaens, Fsh, and Buck)

We skipped round two (no bonus as everyone moved on) Round 3 is all but over...so round 4 will see a change and the finals will have a playoff finale. So we don't have to use time stamps. Who doesn't like a playoff?

So, this is where we are at.

VINGO's and moving on so far:

Kaens
Buck
Fsh
N1ghtmare

One spot open for the fourth round, where all bonuses and such will be announced, if you even need them. I have a feeling the top 3 already have their cards full.

So, after the 5 call VINGO, we move on to the next round. Playoff will be decided by the last two participants and myself. To declare a fair winner, without relying on timestamps and such.

I think anybody who can complete their card, call it a draw and everybody wins(the badge at least). Smile

Details will come out after the last spot is taken. Round will NOT start until the bonus is declared and VINGO pattern described.

Good luck to the person filling the last spot.

Well, my 13 day achievement streak is weird. Humpty Dumpty in Tentacles was earned on 8/25 (and TA and 360voice agree with that), yet, GTN thinks I got it on 8/26 at 4:30 AM (basically, there is no way for that to be possible), and since I live in Central Time USA, and usually sleep Midnight - 06:00, my phone wasn't playing it without me.

So, if the streak is based on GTN info, then I am out. I won't be trying to get another 14-day achievement streak. I will still get an achievement on Friday, pending on your decision, but, if I have to start over, I'm done.
