GeneralWSO CCC Rules PinPopular

This is just a copy of the originally posted rules:[^] - but since that is slipping into prehistory, I thought I'd put it somewhere more visible.

Winner-stays-on CCC rules:

Normal CCC rules apply: How to solve cryptic crosswords[^] (Behind a paywall now, try this: Beginner's guide to solving cryptic crosswords | Crosswords | The Guardian[^] )

First person to post the correct answer is the winner. A solution is recommended.
Winner posts the next WSO CCC.
WSO CCCs are posted as close to 09:00 (London Time) as possible (so everyone has a fair chance at it, it isn't posted in local time) Weekdays, Monday to Friday only.
There are four hours to post the solution: the game is over at 13:00 (London Time) and if there is no correct solution, the poster wins and gets to do it again the next day.
If the poster wins three times in a row, the next day CCC is set by the person who posted the previous one (unless he was on his third, in which case it goes back - you get the idea) [the idea here is to prevent one person posting impossible clues and staying on forever - this is meant to be a game, people!]
It is the responsibility of the winner to let the next person know it's their turn the next day. That person can delegate if work commitments intrude, but the previous winner cannot be delegated.

So if you can't set it tomorrow, don't enter! Laugh | :laugh:

Any complaints about these rules, let me know and we'll bash 'em about a bit to wear the rough edges off...
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
