I'd be up for it again if someone ran it... need excuses to shoot again.

Edit to Remove "again" as it would appear that the side challenge I was in was a different one

I didnt get to participate last time around, I would like to be part of it if it runs. If nobody else steps up for it, I don't mind organizing.

It's been a year. I think this would be fun, although if last month's trend continues, I'll be out first week.

I'm not up for organizing (sorry), but would like to participate if someone would be willing to take the reins on reviving this as the Third Annual Better Than Average Side Challenge.

Hi All

Sorry for my delay in putting the table up (on UK time; early at work today). Congratulations to ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' glad2badad and ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' colorcarnival for making it to the final. Here is the results table:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/100393/120/805039.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/100393/120/805039.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I would never have thought that this would be settled on an expert challenge - just the way the cookie crumbles I suppose.

Good luck to both of you!

Rich - you have no idea how on the mark your words are lol...


I am just glad that I can make people laugh and smile about things. Its really fun. Congratulations to all, there have been a great amount of challenges to overcome in this side challenge for a lot of people and to see everyones attempts and then to see each of the outcomes has really been something great. Its was fun to follow even after the fact of being knocked out in the early rounds.

Rich - You have TOO much time on your hands this morning! LOL!!!
