On another board I frequent, there are races between teams to complete a set of fitness tasks. I thought I could bring it over to the Dope to see if there is any interest. I have permission to start a couple of threads if we get this off the ground.
I will start if we get a minimum of 8 participants, but more would be much better.
GOAL: Be the first team to complete the set of tasks.
TASKS: A set of 80 general fitness and question tasks that should be able to accommodate all fitness levels.
START TIME: The start time for the Battle of the Dopers will be Friday, August 17 at 10:00 am EDT. The end time for the battle of the Dopers will be Sunday, August 26 at 11:59 pm EDT. It will run until that time or until all teams have finished all tasks, whichever is sooner.
Rule 1: You must fully finish a task, then post in the thread that the task is finished, along with your team name. (Example: TEAM GREEN, Task 4 complete) This is the honor system. We can’t prevent you from lying, but if you claim to take 2 minutes to do a 45-minute task, we might get suspicious! Don’t make us suspicious!
Rule 2: If the task says “say what you did” or “answer this question,” it must be included in the post where you claim a finished task. (Example: TEAM GREEN, Task 4 complete, I did this workout for 30 minutes http://www…
Rule 3: If you edit a post, the edit time is considered the “finished” time. You don’t want to edit.
Rule 4: You may only start the next task once someone on your team has finished the previous task. So you can only start task 5 when task 4 is completed and posted. If you start too early, your submission will be disqualified and you will have to repeat it.
Rule 5: Tasks can be modified to fit your fitness level, to some extent. If, for example, the task is 100 pushups, you can do the pushups using a chair seat, but you still must complete 100. Challenge yourself. Don’t hurt yourself. If you have questions about a modification, feel free to ask. All workouts can be done in stages if you need to.
Rule 6: A person may not complete consecutive tasks. You must wait for at least one teammate to finish a task before you can complete another task. EXCEPTION: If there has been a gap of at least one hour since you posted that you completed a task, you may start and complete the next task.
Rule 7: You should coordinate with team members about who is doing what tasks. This will prevent multiple people from trying to complete the same task. I recommend people post when they are starting a task, especially if it takes a while. (Example: I’m starting task 100015 right now!) Whoever posts that they have completed the task in the thread is the “official” one to complete the task.
Rule 8: Each team will have a discussion thread here in Thread Games.
Rule 9: If someone on your team says they will do a task, give them a reasonable amount of time to respond. You can set team rules for how long you think team members should wait.
Rule 10: This thread will become the official thread for each team to post completed tasks.
So, does anyone want to play?
