As many of you have noticed, this series has had a theme — countries not visited by WOGE before (except, of course, the one where we actually stated that the theme was being suspended for the special occasion).
However, we have 2 times during this theme picked locations that appeared in the far distant past. Apparently, the Google search methodology we have been using to rapidly test whether or not we’ve been to a country does not seem be picking up the long distant posts.
So, we are making a modification to the parameters for the theme going forward in an attempt to not confuse our wonderful players.
The theme is now “Countries not visited by WOGE since Andrew and Paul took over the game (Contest #371 posted November 28, 2014)”
Sorry for the confusion.
