  1. As we approach the 25 weeks to go milestone until 2018 Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, it's time to open our official countdown thread here on Totallympics. Members can post here on the thread day-by-day to help build the excitement in the coming weeks as we countdown to the big event. This thread can be used to mark any milestones on the way, such as the opening of the Olympic village, tracking the arrival of delegations, the raising of our national flags in the Olympic village, news and details about the Opening Ceremony and so on. To help us countdown the days ahead, I have created an Olympic Countdown Clock depicting the 2018 Winter Olympic logo alongside the Olympic rings. The clock consists of various elements to help us mark off milestones along the way as we edge closer and closer to the Opening Ceremony on the 9th February. Firstly, the logo itself is divided into 2 elements.... the first part consisting numbers 1-24 representing the number of weeks until the official start of the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. As each week passes, another coloured "block" will be added to the logo until it begins to take on it's familiar appearance. The second element consisting of the an alpha-numeric system will represent various other milestones to watch out for along the way that signify the the Games are getting closer. I will draw up a list of ideas for these milestones and I am calling on you to help with suggesting ideas for this (I am not very knowledgeable in Winter Sports). Ideas currently include: Key: a1 6 months to go a2 3 months to go a3 1 month to go b1 150 days to go b2 100 days to go b3 75 days to go c1 Four Hills Tournament begins c2 Hahnenkamm Race begins c3 Winter X Games begin d1 tickets go on sale d2 2018 Olympic year arrives (Jan 1st) d3 2018 Olympic Prediction Contests Open on Totallympics e1 lighting of Olympic flame in Olympia, Greece e2 Olympic flame arrives in Incheon e3 Olympic flame arrives in Gangwon province x Olympic cauldron is lit Finally, below the official logo is a depiction that becomes active on the "50 days to go" milestone, consisting of the numbers 1-50, representing the 5 Olympic rings. As each day passes, another piece of the Olympic ring is shaded in colour until the 1 day to go milestone, after which the 5 coloured rings will be depicted in their complete form. The Countdown Clock will not be complete until the Olympic cauldron is officially lit inside the Olympic stadium on the night of the Opening Ceremony. Upon completion, the Countdown Clock should look like this...... 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 30 PyeongChang 2018 ------------------50--------------------------------------25--------------------------------------02----- --------49-----------------48------------------27-----------------24-------------------04----------------01- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- --47----------------------------46-------29-----------------------------22-------06----------------------------03 --------------------------------------36--------------------------------------16------------------------------- --45-----------------------38--43-------30--33-------------------18--21-------08--13------------------------05 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------44-----------40---41------------------28--31-------20--23-------------------10--11-----------07--- ------------------42--------------------------------------26--------------------------------------09------------- ----------------------39-----------------------------32-------19----------------------------12----------- -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------37-----------------34-------------------17----------------14------------- --------------------------------------35--------------------------------------15--------------- So without further ado, let the countdown to the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games begin

  3. Totallympics Open International Song Contest 2017

    I have fallen in love with one of the songs . Though there are many I like a lot . Listened to all three times now.
  4. [OFF TOPIC] General Chat

    Well there is a solid argument to be had that anyone who sings nursery rhymes of any description should be locked up but live and let live and all that I guess
  5. [OFF TOPIC] General Chat

    It's just annoyingly stupid and serves no good purpose. I don't know if you are familiar with the nursery rhyme "Baa Baa Black Sheep", well some politically correct morons have turned it around to say that this is too racist to teach children because it has racial connotations..... just go away already you silly people
  6. [OFF TOPIC] General Chat

    Yep, I am liking this game a lot. Also, those obnoxious politically correct people who want to do away with all traditions for no reason at all can go with them..... you know the type who decide that Christmas is no longer an acceptable term and that Winterville would be a much less discriminatory idea. Those people should also be on the ignore list
  7. [OFF TOPIC] General Chat

    An ignore function like you have on forums would also be useful too. If somehow you could implement this ignore button on all walks of life, not just online
  8. [OFF TOPIC] General Chat

    Yeah, such people are such a good example to us all
  9. [OFF TOPIC] General Chat

    Yeah, or Saudi Arabia on women's rights commission ...... oh wait....
  10. I was thinking the exact same thing . Come on users, let's get our Mokorotlos on
  11. [OFF TOPIC] Music Discussion Thread

    Time to get the music thread up and running once again! This thread enables users to share in anything that takes their interest in the world of music. Happy listening everyone!
  12. [OFF TOPIC] General Chat

    3 dead, 365,000 homes without power.... national emergency declared and all public services and almost all places of employment are closed across the whole island. Schools will remain closed tomorrow. I am returning to Ireland by ferry tomorrow morning from Scotland. Hoping it won't be cancelled as the storm is coming this way tonight.. It's worse not being at home during this in a way, you feel the worry more when you aren't there and just relying on updates. The storm is expected to hit my home place in the next hour so am keeping in contact with family to see how things are.

    Yes, and I will (hopefully) be travelling back by sea to Ireland early next week
  15. Totallympics Open International Song Contest 2017

    I am going to Scotland tomorrow so I am planning to listen to the TISC entries on my journey . Maybe I just fluked it last time guessing your 12 points. I just had a feeling but maybe this time my psychic senses will desert me
  16. Totallympics Open International Song Contest 2017

    I haven't started listening to the songs yet so the answer to that is no
  17. Totallympics Open International Song Contest 2017

    Thanks a million for re-submitting a new entry and keeping Malta with us as an ever-present
  18. Totallympics Open International Song Contest 2017

    Yes, same thing happens to me when I access it on my phone (on my laptop it's ok). I probably should have hidden the videos in spoilers to prevent that from happening. In the meantime you will find playlists for the contests on Youtube (I think only the first edition is missing). I don't have any lists of the Festival of Music songs however, I guess we could start adding those to the history thread too for future contests. I seriously need to overhaul that TISC history thread and make it neater and add more info..... after the old website went down I just wanted to add the history on here ASAP so it wasn't lost. Unfortunately we lost some songs from the first edition in the move..... Romania, Slovakia and Lebanon. No one seems to remember these.
  19. Totallympics Open International Song Contest 2017

    @Glen I think Malta competed with this song at TISC Open in 2015?
  20. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    Poland?
  21. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    Ahh, that makes sense to me now . #NeverForget
  22. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    Wait, what?
  23. Men's Football FIFA World Cup 2018

    Commentator saying regularly that any team winning 9/10 matches (Switzerland) deserves to be at the World Cup.... well no, the groups were very imbalanced. I doubt they would have won 9 games in any other group.
  24. Darts Discussion Thread

    Haha, I understand .
  25. Darts Discussion Thread

    Have you ever played darts? And by played I mean thrown darts at a dartboard, nothing too serious
