Yeah it was OK. I was a little miffed at having to learn how to use Third voice, and I’m always a bit tenative about downloading software (I guess I trust you since I did it ;)), and it took me a while to figure how to turn it off, and I use Netscape so I ignored you advice. I didn’t have any problems. I probably shouldn’t have said I finished because that may discourage anyone else from doing it.
Being the consumate procrastinator, and always looking for creative ways to waste time I had a field day.
As for ways to make it more fun, well I’m not known for my creativity and sense of humor so I’m not the best one to ask. What, if any, are your ulterior motives? That could help. If your eager to get people to read your site and learn about you then the current set up is good. If you want to make money from clicks then you could post notes on sponsor sites. I don’t know if you care about that stuff or not, but its a creative way to do it.
One way to keep it open to more compitition might be nice, now its just a first come first serve basis, maybe you could send an e-mail containing the initial clues and then take the difference in time stamps to determine who got it the fastest. But anyone with two email addresses could cheat, so maybe that wouldn’t work.
Now I’m just babbling, anyways I think you should try it again. Maybe take it to other websites, and really challenge us. Include tricky clues that we’d need to research to get right. Make it like Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego, or even better Zork. Or you could just make it kinky and link to porn and you’d have people lining up to play, but maybe they won’t admit to winning then :).
