It's an item in the episode, and this games seems too hard for people to get correct, and so far, seems like a spam fest.

You're game is too confusing and is causing too much posting in a few amount of minutes. The Pixel thread blew up the other day because of this, and this is what causes PEEL crashes. Please, get better and more efficient rules for the game, or perhaps someone will have to enforce a few.

Anyway, I'll guess the space underwear things from A Fishful of Dollars. Also, the name of the eighties dude is That Guy.

Clue #3: According to Bender, use of this item would increase violence in the dark.

i_c_weiner, the rules have been established - to guess the item withint 5 clues of a 24 hour period. And we've been editing past posts, not posting endless new ones - If you are just going to post to complain about the validity of this thread, don't waste your time, because you, too, are adding to the post count of this thread.

grey and scech: nope

Clue #4: The animators depict this object as lime-green in color.

edit: whoo, scech got it in 3 clues. Nice job!!! Your turn   smile

ANSWER: The Glow in the Dark nose made by the professor's machine

It is, it seems like a carbon copy of other games, but here could be some better rules.

1- The clue giver gives a clue.
2- People guess.
3- Clue giver says if it is right or wrong, gives a clue if needed.
4- Process repeats.
5- No multi-posing.
6- Set a limit to yourself when guessing, such as one guess per 10 minutes for yourself. If you seem to be spamming in the game, the "gentlemen's rule" may be enforced.
7- Try to hint towards the item more than saying "It's found in Season...", so the item can be guessed more easily.

That's more or less good guidlines for this thread. I feel that it's sort of a spam fest and is a carbon copy of another thread, but oh well. Also, like I said, please do not post like this thread has had posting, with the post by a person every minute or so. That's what causes server crashes.

Also, I guessed earlier of the space underpants. Though I'm thinking the nose is right, so nevermind that. Sorry to be have complained.

how do you guy s feel about these rules?

ICWEINER-basically these are the same rules i thought of before  except for the limit on the minutes i think that should be inforced try to edit you guys from now on. The only thing is i like new posts cause then it actually says that someone posted on last person who posted just cut down on the posting every minute guys try to limit yourself to five minutes a post. KAY?

i_c_weiner:

Some people don't have all the time in the world to wait for some time arbitrary in what it is in reference to (like as in 10 min when I start, 10 min when you start, etc.) this is no different than the other threads on this board, and it actually serves a purpose related to Futurama. This is why I don't post so much or at all at this board anymore, because the constraints imposed limit creativity to a level of that that mirrors the boredom i feel when I am sitting in the lecture halls...haha...anyways, if playing a game is "spamming" then we should abolish all the games on this board. I think a lot of people are confused in their definition of spamming, or have acquired an ill-described one. Spamming should automatically rule out the possible of all tests threads, correct? They still exist, why should they still exist while fun, purposeful, entertaining trivia threads shouldn't? I think you should reconsider your stance on this issue, because frankly it goes against what you preach simply by posting in this thread.

I didn't mean to go off-topic there, this will probably be my last post for 6 months or so again because I just don't have time to deal with this unfounded frustation, I'm too old to be treated like a child. So sorry to take up your time guys, but I like this thread - just because someone thinks trivia games are "spam" doesn't mean it is.

So long guys, and it is still your turn Scech.
