The basic idea is to post a picture of something indicating the number, preferebly without being cryptic.

For example, a photo of a Chevy S-10 pickup on day 10 would be cryptic.

And at least since 2014, it has been preferred that the image relates to something furry.

Oh but my aquatic feline friend, the crypticism is what makes it fun! Who does not simply enjoy a good brain teaser?

And the Emperor is totally furry because the entire Star Wars franchise is owned by the House of Mouse.  (/sarcasm)

If you're gonna post in this thread, try to stick to the theme of what it is. This thread's a yearly tradition people make, and the idea is to post an image depicting a number that shows how many days are left till AC, preferably with some relation to furries in the image. It's not technically a rule, but it is kind of tradition.

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to offend anyone. Its just that math is kind of my thing. 

However, on the other hand, traditions do evolve and change over time.

Yes, they do.  And THIS one has changed from hundreds of posts with multiple entries on each day to this effort where there were weeks without a single post.

Sometimes traditions die for lack of interest...

That, and it's hard(er) to find number pics relating to furry/Pittsburgh
(though D. Duncan did for yesterday below).

The second isn't furry-related, but I'm sure the staff, artists, and dealers can relate Smiling

It's probably too small to see the "Pittsburgh Fire Department" on the side; too-big-to-post version at

Idunno, I wouldn't trust any poster that displays such a lack of large winged reptiles. Probably made by the criminally insane.

The idea is still to use pictures, try to stick to the theme of the thread. If you're going to post your math equations, try to at least add a picture with it to keep to tradition.
