    September gauntlets are visible in the HOF Gauntlet tab. Don't miss that the minor is Complete Kills and No Goody Huts.

    I haven't been on these forums for the last few weeks, but looks like there wasn't an update at the end of August. Not sure why, but this update will include all those submissions, and all 4 gauntlets will be scored. I apologize for any confusion, heartache, or broken relationships...

    Was wondering what happened to posts of Minor and Majors here. Prior ones both ended 7/31, if not mistaken.

    New Gauntlet games are going up in the Gauntlets tab of the HoF. It would be nice to have dedicated forums for each gauntlet each month if that is doable, but it may not be because a fair amount seems to be automated.

    Hope all are well.

    Correct, not updated since the July update. I apologize, truly. I will see what I can do to get it going. Not sure what the hold-up is, or has been...

    (I have moved to a VERY rural location, love it out here, but I do not yet have a good situation for getting on line. There are solutions available, just haven't decided what the best approach is yet. But that's why I haven't had much of a presence here lately.)

    There's been some kind of mistake in naming gauntlets. In G-Major instead of CVIX there is CVIV, and in G-Minor instead of CLXXIX and CLXXX there is CLXXIV and CLXXV.

    P.S.
    New updates would be nice.

    Fixed, except it's G-Major CIX, not CVIX. Thanks for catching that.

    (I guess the rule-of-thumb for the Romans must have been "Don't forget - carry the V, bury the I", and I did not...)

    Also, I have extended these through this Sunday, 11/08/20. I'm setting up new gauntlets for November, so they'll run concurrently for a few days.

    I have reached out to the Ozbenno several times, not getting a response. I will check with another Admin, see if I can get someone else to catch us up.

    Any news on the updates?

    My experience is, that people (myself included) play more games nowadays because of the Covid pandemic. If I calculated correctly, there are, combined, roughly 200 updates waiting. An update would be much appriciated.

    A warm thank you to our staff for keeping this community going!
