Bolsters, do you run the roulette order? I didn't really see a waiting list in the OP. Have Roulettes jumped the shark?
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

i could try to send you stuff that wouldn't scare the pants off you & i'd love to participate in a roulette since running one with nobody else running any is awkward as heck

There's no waiting list at the moment - all of the people who were on it weren't ready to go when their turn came up, so for the time being there is no need for the list. You can start your roulette immediately if you wish to.

Hmm.. That's kind of quick. I just thought of it tonight! :lol

OK.. I should be ready to go in a few days. I just have to think of the format.




So I'm thinking of having another roulette, but I would exclude the guys from my first ones, 

But I'm expecting some serious commentary from you motherfuckers. Like this:

I've let Stadler know that Parama is finished already, so if he's still willing then yes, he will be up next.

So I haven't liked the way mini roulettes currently affected naming schemes, so I decided to change it. From now on mini roulettes will count as full roulettes regarding version numbers, but I will add an "m" after the number in order to indicate it as a mini roulette.

This decision changes the title of two existing roulettes: Parama's v1.5 is now v2m since it was his second roulette and was a mini roulette (even if only in name), and Parama's v2.5 is now v3 since it's a full-length roulette and his third roulette overall.


Edit: Some of you may notice that one of the abandoned roulettes is version 3.5, I'm keeping this since it was a reboot after an unfinished v3.

I understand that your method made sense from a mathematical perspective, but it wasn't going to work from a practical one. For example if your next roulette were to be mini, it would be named v3.0 despite being your fourth roulette. And if someone ran multiple mini roulettes it was only going to get more confusing over time.

The version numbers have always been to signify how many roulettes that person has hosted, and mini roulettes should count. The only distinction I want to make between mini and regular roulettes is their size or length.

After an absence I'll admit I'm still working on my list of categories BUT I would love to participate in a roulette if there is a spot open. I work better with PMs if there's an invite as I often forget to check here but gimme dat invite.

It's supposed to be a short/small roulette, Parama still put more time in his Mini-Roulette than is put in the average normal roulette though  :P

Ok, so Chad was bugging me to run one, there's no waiting list, and I have an OP and banned list already on file.


It's almost like the universe wants me to do this.

i think there would be a bit of a wait since only three roulettes run at the same time but TAC's is close to done at this point so not too long of a wait?

anyways nice another roulette for me to do awful in, probably

Correct.

TAC is on round seven of eight, once he starts round eight you have the greenlight.
