Hi all, The AutoSave Draft feature is now disabled across the site. The decision to disable the feature was made via a poll last year. The delay in putting it in place was due to a bug/update issue. This should serve as a reminder to manually save your drafts if you wish to keep them. Thanks, The Boards Team.

    The point of the game is pretty simple. In a PM to me, answer each of the 10 questions below.

    Try to think of the most popular answer. Don't bother entering for the sake of entering without thinking about how best to reply.

    If you need to comment or clarify a question then do it in thread please. And if you could reply once you've sent a PM it'd keep the thread alive Thanks!

    Write your answers like this...

    Do not repeat the questions, no full-stops at the end of answers, no spaces between lines, no comments, no fancy list coding. Thanks.


    1. Dr Maria O' Brien
    2. Kathy Wells
    3. XXXX

    Those who don't reply like this will be ignored.

    The game will end when we have 40 entrants or after 5 days, whichever comes first.

    Please, no full-stops after the answers and put a space in between the 1. and the answer ok?
