  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

  5. [OFF TOPIC] General Chat

    That's it . How does it taste?
  6. [OFF TOPIC] General Chat

    By the way, there was some plum-flavoured chocolate product, maybe you know it? That sounds like an interesting combination
  7. [OFF TOPIC] General Chat

    Yes I like it. I wouldn't be able to eat too much of it at once (I had 4 sweets so far and will come back to them in the next days), but that is how I usually work with toffees and chocolates . It has a lovely flavour, I probably would like it to be a little more chewy though so I can enjoy them for longer

    There was a Krówki chocolate bar also which I was tempted to buy but I decided that one Krówki purchase was enough for now

    It seriously needs to be considered and I just want to let you know that I am considering it. His votes could end up deciding the winner and when he doesn't care and makes a mockery of his votes then I just don't think we can go ahead with keeping him here. All integrity will be lost. I know people see me as a manager of the contests and in ways I am but I don't want to have to enforce things like this.... firstly it is not my job to sanction users! Users who do nothing but bring a mess to this forum should be given chances and if they don't rethink their behaviour then it should be said that this forum is not for them. But like i said, this is not my job. Why should it be left to me to enforce this? I am tired of users getting away with causing mayhem on this forum and with no consequence to them, only consequences to the people who are here trying to communicate with people and to have fun in doing so. I am sorry if this seems like a rant but well, it is. This is what happens when things go unchecked for so long.

    I edited that to reflect that now.... but there still seems to be a 10 point discrepancy on the scoreboard (10 points missing somewhere)? Do you have the calculations?

    The Danish song was my first reserve this year and I just want to say that it brought me a lot of joy as it reminded me of an episode of my favourite Irish comedy of mid-90s. So I want to say thank you to @Agger to bring back good memories The comedy is about a group of priests who live on a remote island off Ireland and are involved in bizarre situations. In this episode the priests compete against another set of priests from another island for the right to represent Ireland at Eurovision. The intro of the Danish song reminded me of the song from one of the group of priests....here you can compare and see if you see the resemblance Go to time 17:22 on this video to see the song I mean.....
