The modernburrow foundation reserves the right to change any of these awards depending on the hotness of the applicant, the mood of the wabbit, the approval of Bubbles McDoggles and a complex algorithim whose name is Tim the incalculable. The organisers also reserve the right to waive any requirements and extend any deadlines, especially when it involves hot babes like Linda, Sandra, and Vamp jie. We also reserve the right to substitute the Wabbit with one of his hapless/honry/unsuspecting friends. Mr. Miyagi is encouraged to apply for all awards, just because. mr brown is banned from all award, just because. The contest may or may not be real, just be brave and apply for it.

    The dragon questions are the really tough ones. Must be some sort of trick question.

    At least TriplePeriod did not include any dragons in his quest.

    tripleperiod- the foundation is thinking of pulling the plug on the date contest. We will not be sucked into Singapopo one-upmanship. Dun want to spoil market for you. We will post our decision soon.

    knightofpentacles- answer the questions to the best of your abilities.
