Final week of Contest!!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Well the final week of the contest is here. The race for points if almost over. I want to take this oppurtunity to thank everybody who helped me and others in the forums during the contest. The entire learning experience was fantastic. I learned loads of new stuff and i am sure everybody else also has.

    The only thing that saddens me is that we have to say goodbye to the contest. Looking forward in communicating with you in the forums, even after the contest is over....

  • Sure Adnan, I dont think i will miss the contest much. As the main event of the contest has been the quiz and forums.

    I will surely be taking part in the forums even after the contest, and about the quizzes, i hope DevSquare keeps conducting them. If we keep interating in the forums even after the contest is over as we are doing right now, we will not miss the contest Smile After all what MS wanted to put out from this contest is to make ourselves able to learn on our own and itneract and share and gain knowledge from other fellow forum membes Smile We have learnt that very well. Now we just need to keep on continuing it.

    But i am sad that i will miss few people who might leave the forums after the contest is over. I hope noone does like that.

    And yes, final 7 days remaining Smile
    Friday, June 8, 2007 5:50 PM
  • i wont leave the forums

    Saturday, June 9, 2007 6:37 PM

    Anyways back to the point. countdown decreased, and 5 more days left  now.
    Sunday, June 10, 2007 2:28 PM
  • What fine??? And i think that he was talking about Aragon, the dragon rider and you are talking about the Lord of the rings....
    Sunday, June 10, 2007 2:54 PM
  • @Varun, No i was talking about aragon of the LOTR. I wish i also had a dragon egg and become a dragon rider.

    Anyway, Harshil could you please elaborate about the 'fine'.

    5 more days to go.

    Sunday, June 10, 2007 3:56 PM
  • Yes Varun he was talking about Aragon from LOTR,  the hero lead Stick out tongue
    The one that you are talking about Varun is Eragon Stick out tongue

    @Adnan - I dont know what you are ting to mean by 'fine' Can you please explain ?
    Sunday, June 10, 2007 4:13 PM
  • @Harshil, you mentioned something like "bearer of the fine"
    We are talking about it....
    Sunday, June 10, 2007 5:44 PM
  • LOL that really funny Adnan. Actually i meant to say "Bearer of the ring" Stick out tongue I dont know how did 'fine' get replaced with 'ring' . Dont know what was gong on in my mind when i typed that.

    Sorry for creating confusion.
    Sunday, June 10, 2007 6:18 PM
  • @Harshil, Thou hast committed thy oldest sin - a Typo.....

    Speaking of LOTR, we all need Legolas and Gimli, any volunteers???

     

    Anyway, 4 more days to go.

    Sunday, June 10, 2007 10:42 PM
  • I think in the final 4 days we will find the fellowship of the forums, and i hope we really do.

    May be after the contest gets over, we can change our display names Smile And create a real fellowship of the forums/ hehe

    Yes 4 days only left now. Days are passing off really fast, at the start of this contest, i was thinking that this contest is too long and laborious, but then slowly as i came to know about the forums, i completely forgot about the time, and now the contest has hardly some time left Smile
    Monday, June 11, 2007 1:24 AM

    I have chosen - Gandalf
    Adnan - Aragon

  • @Raghuram, you are most welcome to join the fellowship of the forums. Please select your character and let us know...
    Monday, June 11, 2007 10:53 AM
  • I want to be Frodo...Pls Pls Pls.

    "WHAT SAY YOU, ARAGORN, SON OF ARATHORN ??"
    Monday, June 11, 2007 11:05 AM
  • Well, I liked the character of Arthur from the legend.. So you can call me Arthur.. know its not from the Lorts.. but thatz my fav...
    Monday, June 11, 2007 2:37 PM
  • @Arijit (Frodo), I Aragon son of Arathon doth hereby declareth you the bearer of the ring and wise member of the fellowship of the ring.

    (Just dont go around and play with Orks, or we will have to come and wage war against those evil beasts)

     

    @Varun, oops sorry Arthur, glad to have you with us...

    Monday, June 11, 2007 4:06 PM
  • @Arijit - YOu can surely become Frodo. But the dialog you said "WHAT SAY YOU" thats spoken by ARAGON Stick out tongue

    @Varun - We are making a fellowship of the forums Stick out tongue so i think it will not matter what character you choose, but it will be better if you select characters from the LOTR, so that will be better Wink I think you can select SAM ? or Legolas?


    @Adnan - Now you have given the ring to Frodo, i am sure he will not mess up. He needs Sam to keep him away from the orks. I guess we need some Samwise Gamchee ;P
    And one more thing, where is your Arwen, I want her, she is damn pretty. You take the ring, give me her Stick out tongue
    Monday, June 11, 2007 4:20 PM
  • 3 more days to go Stick out tongue

    Tuesday, June 12, 2007 2:16 PM
  • @Harshil, i like Gandalf's stick, but i cant take it, cos it belongs to you. Same way, Arwen is also mine and everything that comes with being Aragon.

     

    Anyway, 3 more days to go. Wow! Time flies...

    Friday, June 15, 2007 10:55 AM
  • Well the entrance to Mordor is blocked. We cannot login to the Student Rockstar Website.

    How am I, Frodo, a lowly hobbit, supposed to dispose of the ring now??
    Friday, June 15, 2007 12:16 PM
  • Frodo, please dispose the ring into the burning flames, and stop playing with the ring. And ill gollum and throw that ring. And then shall the gate of mordor be destroyed, and we shall then finally see the return of the King with the site working back again.
    Friday, June 15, 2007 1:24 PM
  • GOOD NEWS !!! The gates to Mordor are open again, we can enter the website.
    Friday, June 15, 2007 1:39 PM
  • the gates had a hitch while opening, it closed for about 5 minutes, and then now they are open for ever till the 30th Wink
    Friday, June 15, 2007 2:39 PM
  • With all of us under strict scrutiny of the admins, the eyes of Sauron are upon us. Beware!!!
    Friday, June 15, 2007 3:43 PM
  • Frodo needs to throw the ring into the burning flames, so that saurons eye can be destroyed Stick out tongue

    But i suggest Frodo to wait until the Saurons eye have identified all the fake referrals and deleted points for them : then Frodo is free to throw the ring.
    Friday, June 15, 2007 3:59 PM
