Gevan - guildmaster of the Coercer guild
Well, good to see that a lot of you made it here okay, I trust the journey here was fairly smooth going.
Eh? A bit unrealiable you say - well for the next part of your journey will rely on your own two feet!
Welcome to Tsugoka Park - a lovely part of the Beforetime which luscious green forests and beautiful and unique wildlife! I am told their are many sights to see in this part of the world and what better way to see them by strolling through them yourself! Yes, your next part of your journey will involve you walking together with me! I hope you all have food and water with you because I want be stopping for stragglers!
And I feel I should mention that it is advised that you do not stray away from the path and wild animals and the like have been known roam these parts of the wood.
What's that? What do I mean by '& the like' - ah let's venture forward and make good use of the daylight! And in any case, don't worry you all look capable enough of fending off wild animals! Or erm... perhaps just take extra care to stay on the path.
Right-o then! Off we go. And look, to pass the time, I have a little game that we could play. Care to join me? Hey, in fact, this could be your Task for the week!
If you notice to the left of the message boards, there is a list of the 10 most recent posts on the board. As you can see there is the name of the thread and the first 8 or so words of the post. Your task is to try and create a post reply in a thread that makes a full statement as displayed on the side bar.
I see you are all scratching your heads. Well, let me break it down for you:
1. Search the boards for an existing thread (you cannot create on specifically for this task).
2. Compose a reply to the thread in an attempt to form a statement that fits within the limitations of the side bar. Also be sure to include the following banner at the end of your post
3. Post your comment and then check the side bar to see if you were successful. If not, return to your post and hit the edit button in the top right hand corner of your post and try again. Keep repeating this until you are happy with your statement.
Remember, when you are doing this other members may post in the meantime and may subsequent lower your comment down the line. If your post is shuffled off the list before you are happy with it please DELETE your post before starting another one. Regular forum rules still apply and multiple posts will disqualify you from this task.
4. Once you are happy with your post, be sure to take a screenshot of the side bar, upload it to an external image host (such as photobucket or imageshack and post the image in this thread with the url of the thread containing your post.

Challenging? Well, no one said that this was going to be a walk in the park. I'm going to pretend I didn't see some of you cringe at my witty word play. Remember, I'm still your tour guide.
Well, here's some examples of what your submission should be like -
