All jokes posted in October have been removed from the jokes forum and the corresponding points awarded for those points have been revoked. All jokes removed were found to have been copied and pasted from other websites. We will continue to award 150 points for a new joke topic if it can be shown that the joke is an original creation of the joke's poster.
We understand that jokes for the most part are not "original" but for the purpose of this contest, we will not allow copied jokes to compete with original submissions. This is covered in the Official Rules.
