whats with this new math squad?
They're winners of a recent forum contest on LPA:
oh now i get it.i thought they helped the admins out here with some math homework
To completely explain the situation;
Back in May, I started a contest where I challenged members to go as many days as they can without posting "the" or "and" in any of their posts. The contest was set for indefinite amount of time, where the last member standing would win a unknown prize.
Dave eventually won after about 90 something days after St0f was eliminated due to trickery on Tomi's account. I decided the prize for going so long without posting either of those two words for 90+ days would be a personalized custom member group. I asked Dave in a private message that if he had a group of superheroes, what would he call them? I hadn't told him at the time the name he would choose would become his member group title.
Once he PM'ed me back with "Math Squad", I told him that was the name of his new custom user group. I said he could invite 4 other member to join his group, and if they accepted, they'd all be in his exclusive club, complete with a custom banner, title, and color. Dave chose hot pink as the group's color in honor of my stipulation from July 29th onwards that they had to post the rest of their posts in hot pink color. The "Math Squad" has the same priviledges as SuperMembers do (and in the case of Kay, she got a temporary taste of those priviledges because she only had 2200 posts when she was upgraded) and nothing else. The member group is temporary and all members will be returned their previous ranks on January 1st, 2007.
Perhaps January 2nd once I come out of my New Years Eve party-induced coma.
For the record, this is the second contest of your's in a row that i pwn3d him. xD
Thankyou for explaining Saves any more questions
And for the record, The Maths Squad (Or The UK Maths squad) were 3 people that turned up to one of comidean Ross Nobles' shows in matching fishing hats (Maths Hats they called them. They were from the Cambridge university UK Maths Squad). He turned them into a joke and made them into some kind of group of underground mathmaticians, similar to the A-Team, but with maths.
'*hums the first note to the A-Team theme* Hooold on, just gotta carry the one.. *plays with imaginary abbacus* ok! *carrys on with the theme*
You laugh about it all you want but there's no Pink banner under your name that says Math Squad, is there?
I'll be laughing even harder when there's a red one under your's.
Yeah, even I didn't get that one.
I think Tomi's kinda pissed, though.
st0f, Raj he meant admin(i think)
Tomi's not pissed, he's contoling his reactions and channeling them into the open palm, higher path road.
Uhh, go communism!
Now that I've said that, you've completely lost us, Tomi.
nu-uh look at my post, well the first bit anyway.
Yeah, but why would he laugh if St0f was an admin? That was hardly a good comeback.
"Your mom!" would have sufficed.
That was the part that I was confused about. Saying "zomg haha ur a admin roffelcopters!!!1" makes absolutely no sense at all.
Unless it was opposites day and nobody told us.
I'll be laughing because I'll know when St0f is an admin (red banner), I've gone insane (hence the laughing). Duh.
And why would I be pissed?
That's a stretch, Tomi. You can be better.
Separate names with a comma.
