It's Themed Trainwreck Thursdays, a new series which (hopefully) comes to you on the second Thursday of every month, airing at 7 - 9 PM EDT, the same time as Klik of the Month!

Here's the deal: As a contestant on our show, you are given two hours to come up with your very own themed trainwreck using the tool of your choice! The winner receives fun and good times! Consolation prize is fun and good times!

Your theme for this month is: Falling Block Puzzle. We are also accepting submissions for ideas regarding future Themed Trainwreck Thursdays, so everyone is a winner!

The Falling Block Puzzle is an enigmatic mix of wells and falling objects. Your themed trainwreck could be about shapes or colors. It might involve falling objects that aren't blocks. It might even be surreal. Just be sure you include wells and falling objects.

Remember, contestants on our show get to enjoy such amenities as The Learning KNP FAQ and Internet Relay Chat, so you can feel like a real star!

Let's hear it, ladies and gentlemen!

Contestants, submit your Themed Trainwrecks here!

The page is lying to you; it's giving you EffBee's timezone, and correcting the time to your timezone. It's 4-6pm PST, just like KotMK.

Dang. Well, it's harder for me during the week, but we'll see when the time comes if I'm available. I sure like the idea, at least.

To be honest, I have no idea how to make that thing appear. SpindleyQ probably knows.

When you edit the event,

When you edit the event, there should be a little arrow with "Signup settings" next to it that you can click to enable signups on events.

Oops, so you do. Fixed this

Oops, so you do. Fixed this for you; apparently I had never marked events as being allowed to have sign-ups, and it was only working for me because I was an administrator and administrators can do whatever the fuck they want.

I think I'm going to have to miss this for an assignment. :(

No time, no time. Accept this now:

Someone move this to the "Themed Trainwreck Thursdays" event categorisation when it becomes available, please.

Oops! I thought I had it

Oops! I thought I had it set up to make the option available twelve hours in advance, but it turns out that I'd actually set it to show up twelve minutes in advance. Blarg.

I totally worked on something, but it imploded and my idea didn't work :( Maybe I'll try again a different day.

Oh well. KOTM is in two days, and I know I can do the other idea I had.

RRRR: Stacked Odds

I've been an unproductive emo as of lately, but this game seems fitting:

From the site:
"This game has an AI that finds which piece that player most desperately needs, and doesn't give it to him. More specifically, it finds the deepest hole, and gives you only the pieces that don't fit into it."

The ending also is smirk-worthy.

I want to participate in one

I want to participate in one of these one day! Maybe some times this summer, I can get home early from work and make something.
I made this thing called Tetrovny like six or seven years ago in about five hours with some friends. It's relevant.
