ONE "what is it" picture is posted.
In reasonable focus, not a fuzzy blob.
You have to guess what it is.
You can ask questions, but only to get a simple/ binary answer, like yes/no, indoor/outdoor, metal, plastic etc
The poster has to answer genuinely, which can be tricky, say if the answer is "sometimes".
You can't ask for example "what does it depend on?".
You Can ask for a size guide if you want.

The poster decides when you have got it precisely enough, eg if you describe it very closely without actually using the word for it.

Key rule - when you are deemed to have got it right YOU have to post another pic and answer questions until someone guesses it.
You can only post a picture if you won the last challenge.
If it goes quiet for a couple of days someone else can post a picture.

It's up to the poster if they want to reveal a bit more of an item which is proving hard, etc.

OK, first pic. What is it?
Remember, if you get it right YOU have to post the next picture and answer questions until it's guessed.

Different format. It may run, it may not. P.S. nobody "owns" threads.

If you don't know the answer, you can'y generally google a picture someone has taken.
And if we stay away from specialist things, everyone will have access to the answer,,, sort of.

Everyone has this thing , pictured bit of which I posted.

`to make this work, you'll probably need a slightly zoomed out version or 2.

Sure. If nobody gets it, that's next.

Don't forget questions - like does that top-hat feature repeat, is it functional, would you find the item in a specific room, is that metal, etc
eg - the field of view, north south, is about 6mm. (phone camera doesn't have macro so it's not minute)

There's a lot of rules n regs there. Remember most people aren't as lonely as you. If you need attention try and make your bait less bossy.
