Where is it - Rules
From Bushwalk Australia
The game is just for fun. Any forum member is able to contribute a guess or ask a question at any time. Here are a few rules to get the game started.
Playing the Game
The person who guess the correct location will get to post the next Photograph.
The Photo you post to the game should be a Panorama or panoramic scene with good detail and plenty of clues to help people work out what it is and then Where-It-IS.
As Australia is a big place, when you post a picture please give the State the picture is from.
All forum members can play the game - The Players.
Players try to guess where the subject of the Photo is located.
Players ask questions to narrow down the choices.
The person who posted the photo, or an appointed proxy, will answer the question and can also volunteer extra information or clues if he/she chooses.
The person who guesses the correct location wins.
The winner must either:
a) promptly post a new image, or
b) give his/her turn to another person who can promptly post, orc) post a forfeit, in which case any Player can post the next Photo
Keeping the game moving
If you are owner of the Phote, try to answer questions as promptly as possible.
If no progress is made in 24 hours then the owner of the photo should volunteer some additional clues.
If you are the winner, try to post a new image as quickly as possible.
If the winner does not post within 1 day (24 hours), the turn is forfeited and anyone can post and the first person to post has the turn.
If the winner forfeits without nominating (option c) then anyone can post and the first person to post can have a turn.
If more than one image is posted as a result of a forfeit, the first image posted is the new entry and other entries should be edited to remove the image, to avoid confusion.
Defaulting on a turn
Proxy: If a person posts a picture and then is unable to monitor the game, he/she may select another Player to act as Proxy and PM the correct answer to that Player. (PM the site Moderators/Administrators if no one else is available).
Forfeit: A person can of-course forfeit their turn at any time by simply posting the correct answer and normal forfeit rules apply. This is a less preferable option. Proxy is a better choice if at all possible.
