Revised: 2006.01.29

Guess The Mug! (GTM) is a simple game that you can play everyday. The admin will post a scrambled picture of somebody (most likely, but not limited to, celebrities) and below the picture will be a poll. You enter into the poll who you think the picture is of. It's that simple! Monday through Friday anew picture will be posted, once the results have been posted, voting on the that game is over. The League Table will have everybody's scores on it.

1) Your first guess is your final guess!
2) Do not guess multiple names. Guessing two or more names will automatically be marked wrong, even if one of the names you guessed is the correct answer.
3) You must give the name of the person in the picture. Giving the name of a movie they were in, the name of a character they played, or the name of the band they are in will not count as a correct answer.
4) Do not post guesses/hints in the comments. You will be banned for one full set if you do so.
5) Have fun!

I just joined the community and it says I need posting access! Can you give it to me?
You don't need posting access. Only the admin of the community makes posts.To play the game you put your guess into the poll and submit it that way.

Can you make a list of all the previous quizzes you've done?
Yes there is one located in the memories of this community

I submitted my answer and it's not on the results list!
Users have said they have guessed and their guess isn't in the results.This is a bug in the livejournal poll system. Sometimes you'll submit an answer and it won't go through. Sorry that is an LJ problem and I can't fix that.

What happened to the results?
The results are posted every morning. Except on the weekends. Therefore the game posted Friday will have its results posted Monday.

How do I become a GTM Champion?
To become a GTM Champion you must have the highest score at the end of a'set' of games. A 'set' consists of 20 GTM games and after 20 games the scores are 'reset' and all users have a chance to become champion. The reward for being a GTM champion is getting on the champions page, and a 'GTM winners' banner to add to your livejournal.

How does the scoring work?
Games on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are worth 1 point. Games on Thursday are worth 2 points  and games on Friday are worth 3 points.

What happens if I tie somebody for the championship?
In the event of a tie for the championship, the winner will be decided based on who performed better in the set. For example, if player1 had more 3-pointers correct than player2 then player1 would win. If  they had the same amount of 3-pointers correct, then it will go to how many 2 pointers they had and so on. In an event where they are tied after this, then both will be award the winners title..

Are there any more rules that I should be aware of?
Yes there are and they are in the in

A few years ago there was guessthatmug.  I was already running moviephiles when that community died. 
A few of my members asked me if I would take over the community, but as the owner refused to do this I decided to create guessthemug. It's been around now for two years and has been run by a few different  people in that time.

The community has continued to grow and now has a loyal fan base. It's probably the largest and most popular of it's type of community and hopefully it will continue to grow and be a place for livejournal users to have fun.
