Well you did step down, it's now in someone elses hands. This happens in all leadership positions. It's the nature of the beast. There were too many rules. Sounds like this was some carbon copy game from another board anyway. TF should have its own. I agree with Thez on changing that rule (I'm sure others don't like it as well) and with Pineapple about the time limit.
But I REALLY don't want to!
Then don't. You already quit and ""Washed your hands of it". It would be wrong to say, "Now give it back". Let people have their fun. It sounds like you weren't having fun for whatever reason. There can be more than one contest as well. I think this one's off to a better start. I don't participate anyway because to me it's pointless, but I like to watch and if others like to participate they should enjoy themselves. If Thez or anyone else takes over it would become their game and they can make the rules so long as they're reasonable.
