    That would be a great idea, Rend, but I only have Yahoo.

    So, what I'm saying is, I suck.

    Last I checked, AIM was a free download.

    So, what I'm saying is, www.aim.com.

    Oh! Though, I'll have to log in at 10:00/7:00 instead. I have a Call of Cthulhu game that lasts until then. F'sho.

    Man, I need to reinstall it.

    Also clarification please! Just to be absolutely sure:
    However, each player may only submit 1 answer,

    You mean team, right? I'm assuming you do, because it seems to be implied by the rest of the paragraph - I just want to make sure :D

    No, for the purposes of this game each player may submit 1 answer.

    So yes, as a tribe, you may have multiple answers.

    Bliss, that would be amazing. I am in.

    It looks like our tribe is pretty well suited for challenges, lots of good thinkers here.

    Question, though: If I'm not at my computer at exactly 9pm (I have a class that ends today but gets out at 9:30pm est) am I not going to be able to participate in the challenge? Because, if so... D:

    Yes you will be able to participate. The challenge lasts from 9PM EST until 4PM EST the next day.

    However, sending answers in a timely manner is beneficial as if both tribes come up with the correct answer, the one who sent it first wins.

    Is there a better method of IM for you, or would we be better off doing the proboard thing?

    I suppose we should have a vote on our method of communicating, just to make sure everyone'll be able to get help, or help everyone else. I'm really fine with either way, but I'll !Vote that we use IM, just because during problem and riddle-solving, response time could be an issue.

    I like the idea of IM + boards, so that those that can't participate in the IMs can catch up on the results of it, at least.

    Well, fine then, I guess my idea was just stupid.

    No, seriously though, that's a good thought, one that I completely missed. I agree.

    Hello, fellow Maltans!

    Actually, Proboards may work out better than IM's- I've never had to deal with IMing between large amounts of people at once before, but it sounds a bit annoying from a problem solving perspective.

    Plus, if we put stuff up on boards, people can see what was said etc, in case they can't make it... which would allow everyone to contribute better.

    I like the idea of keeping what we've got on boards, but anyone who's online, it would be pretty easy to set up an AIM chat room. Not required, but it would make things easier for those who are online at the time.

    Then we put down what we've got, as we get it, on the boards.

    Proboards are good, I can do AIM at home, but I have been having difficulty with AT&T crapping out on me once and a while.

    Hello, my fellow tribemates. Let us defeat the other tribe and bring our entire tribe to the merge!

    Let me set up my Program Headquarters to handle the Survivor game privately and send out links to everyone. Also, let's meet up on instant messenger to discuss the puzzle once it comes up.

    First Team Immunity Challenge

    Welcome to your first Team Immunity challenge. Here’s how it works: Simply answer this riddle, remember to include your explanation and submit it by 4 P.M. EST. In addition, today you will be voting for someone in your tribe to go to Exile Island, bold and in red also by 4 P.M. EST. Retractions are helpful, although not necessary. The losing tribe’s vote winner will be sentenced to Exile Island.

    What is it?
    Five in a row
    Four make noise
    The one that does not
    Is the one that is heard

    Rules question.

    Is google/researching allowed? Or are we expected to come up with the answer in an isolated fashion?

    Yes, googling and researching is allowed. I will warn you though that all of these puzzles are homemade or inspired so googling the question will be moot.

    Please don't forget that you need to vote for a person to send to exile as well.

    Clarification: I'm assuming we have to vote for a person from our tribe for this, right? So there'll actually be two exiles per night?

    Yes you vote for someone within your own tribe. It is mentioned with the immunity challenge as well as in the OP.

    There are not two exiles, the winning team's exile is safe from exile due to winning the challenge.

    So from what I can see being exiled has no negative in-game effects, does it? So far I only see the positive effect of "you might get the immunity idol"

    Hmm.

    While exiled, you may not communicate with any player. That could be quite a negative effect.

    So does anyone actually want to be exiled in order to have a potential shot at the idol?

    I have to vote, so I'll likely end up RNG'ing if nobody is interested in the dubious honour.

    Eh. I won't take offense if you vote for me Skid. Wasn't really my intent, I just won't be around tonight during the elimination vote so there isn't much point in me not being on the island tonight. I won't be talking with people regardless.
