October Points Table

September was a quiet month for points, perhaps because I introduced a new system (unannounced) of only offering points a few days after each relevant post was put up. I did this on the suggestion of a friend in order to avoid having the substantive discussion swamped by guesses. I will continue this system for the time being. In any case, Moffitt the prophet scores ten bonus points and Matt Lemieux gets five for being second. I keep a list of all available points on offer, which is usually up to date. At this point, there are over 450 points available.

Iron Cove Bridge. It's funny, but I've jogged along that path many times before, but I've never looked left. Thanks.

Well done. Twelve points and you've opened the scoring for the month.

Cna I suggest that Jonathon will win the October points competition? And if he indeed does so, will I receive some points for it?

You can suggest away, but I didn't offer points this time. This competition in previous months didn't have the interest I thought it might and no one really did much guessing (except for themselves) until someone remembered a day or two before closing to guess for whoever had the lead (as you have just done). Good memory, but it's not much fun, is it?
