    Default Wahh! It’s uh-over. Nuh-ow what will I do?

    Don’t despair, Forumites, as promised I bring you DC Bike Forum Bicycle Tag (#bikeforumbicycletag) to put meaning back in our lives now that the end of Freezing Saddles has taken it all away.

    It’s a simple game. Just like playground tag, there are no winners or losers and the game can go on forever. It’s all about the playing of the game.

    Here’s how it works. I’ll be “it” to start

    Player It: Posts a picture in a context (e.g., “My bike in front of a coffee shop”)
    Player B: Posts a freshly taken photo (saved photos not allowed) of his or her bike in the same context: “My bike in front of a coffee shop.”
    Player B is now it.
    Player B posts a picture in a new context: “My bike in a graveyard.”
    And the game continues. Pretty simple.

    See next post for the more detailed rules.

    Default Detailed Rules for DC Bike Forum Bicycle Tag (#bikeforumbicycletag)

    This is a community game, and these are community rules. We can adjust them as needed to keep the game fun and working. We’ll use the usual process: 10 pages of back and forth comments that stray far from the topic and then eventually settle on something or other. Maybe.

    - Anyone on the bike forum may play.
    - Your bike in a context cannot be a specific place, but must be replicable somewhere else: Examples:
    BAD: Bike by the Washington Monument
    GOOD: Bike by a monolith
    GOOD: Bike by something associated with George Washington
    - If your context is too obscure or too hard, the Forum may vote. 3 dislikes and you have to post a new context (either a new photo or the same photo redefined, as in the example above).

    - If there are multiple replies to a photo, the first one posted is “it.”
    - If you are “it” and fail to post a new photo within 48 hours, the game reverts to the previous photo and is open game again. If multiple replies were already posted, then next one in line becomes “it.”

    - Use newly taken photos only. Just like our other games, this is on the honor system. The point of the game is to go out and ride your bike.

    - Some replies may be in a gray area. For instance:
    Post: “Bike by a bank”
    Reply – picture of bike by the Potomac River: “Bike by a (river)bank”
    The person who was “it” may veto the photo by <dislike>ing it. The original photo then becomes fair game again, and anyone may respond. The Forum can overturn a veto, however, by bestowing 3 more likes than dislikes.

    Okay, let's get going. I am starting a new thread to start the game.

    When the person who is currently "it" likes your post, are you then "it" or do have to wait to be declared "it"?

    As soon as you post your picture, you are it. No need to wait for anything.

    An exception might occur if your picture is questionable in some way. Yours is not, so you may go ahead and post your new picture at any time. Even if it were, you would be it until it gets rescinded by a veto. I just liked your photo because, well, I liked it.
