    Ok the person who post the picture of their bike and the Tag wins the right to name the next Tag. There are a few ground rules, but it's the honor system, we trust you to ride your bike to a location, because the whole point is to get out and ride, or at least dicker around with the bike anyway. So if you guys want to play along, just join in whenever you can. Nothing dangerous, illegal, or just plain dumb ok? Rules to follow, please give a quick skim, most questions can be answered there, and as always they are flexible, especially the timeframe during the cold months. Happy New Year, and Welcome to 2017 Phototag.

    Enjoy the Ride
    Thomas


    Here are the rules (thanks to americanclassic):



    1. Your bike must be in the picture.



    2. If the tag is some sort of a business, national chains aren't allowed. They're too common and make the game too easy.



    3. Nothing illegal or dangerous (no pics of you riding a wheelie on the freeway or anything stupid like that).



    4. The first person to successfully post the tag is the winner, but if you also got it (but too late) and want to post your pic anyway just for fun, feel free to do so (the point is to have fun riding, and it's cool to see pictures of people getting out and having fun with their bikes).



    5. If a challenge is not met within a 48 hour period, the current tag will be dropped and the previous winner will declare a new tag. (We can be flexible with this rule. For example, if the time is up but someone has said they can get it the next day, it's okay to let the time limit slide a bit to give the person time to do it. But if no one has said they can get it soon for sure, then a new tag can be announced.) If the new tag has not been declared within 24 hours because the person who is supposed to do it is missing, the group can then move ahead with the game and declare a new tag. The new tag can be declared by whomever chooses to do so once the 24 hour wait is over.



    6. No Photoshop.



    7. Pictures must be taken after the tag was announced. In other words, no using old pictures you've got saved on your computer to win a current tag. That's cheating and defeats the purpose of the game, which is to get people out and riding.



    8. If a tag proves difficult to find and someone posts a picture that almost meets the requirement (for example, something that's almost as big or almost as old as specified in the tag), it will be up to the person who specified the tag to decide if it's 'close enough'.



    9. State the location of the picture (if it's not obvious), just to satisfy everyone's curiosity.



    10. You can't get your own tag.



    Some of these rules can be bent. Some (particularly the national chain rule) are more of suggestions than cold hard rules. In the end it is up to the person who presented the tag to decide if yours counts.



    I know many of us have multiple bikes, so I don't think it should be cx/gl specific. As long as it has two (or three wheels) it's fine.


    New suggestion. Try to keep it country/region neutral. So everyone can have a shot at getting the tag. i.e. In stead of say a picture with Big Ben, you say a pic with a giant clock. And in stead of say a pic from Yellow Stone, you ask for a pic in a state park. That way everyone has a chance to play.
    Now get on your bike and ride.

    First tag is your bike and a City/Town Name sign, like the ones you see when entering a city or town. Then you get to post what the next tag is.
    Enjoy the ride,
    Thomas

    I will post a new tag tomorrow after work. I am waiting to here back from Thomas on an idea I had that involves a little more riding on part of the winner of the current tag.

    Once you decide on a new tag you would also have to take a pic and post your bike next to the new tag you want others to go find. just like tag o rama over at the adv rider forums. it ads a bit of fun.
    let go
    and let God

    I'm not on board with that at all. Too high of a hurdle IMO. I also like to pick tags that l can't get in my neck of the woods since I'm not eligible for my own tag. You are welcomed to start your own tag game with your own rules.

    This doesn't seem to fit the picture. Stick with the original format, it allows the global users to keep things less restrictive.
