Before we get to the rule change let's pour one out for @Davemcc who put up a good fight before the inevitable pull of his collection did him in. It wasn't a lack of strap changes, his bracelet was just fine. Great watch, good run.
I will be upfront that the reason for the rule changes is that we need to winnow the field. I frankly thought that there would be fewer than the Elite Eight who are still around. This rule is a chance to make a mistake and get sloppy (sort of like selling too many watches and then not having the minimum, if that sort of thing happens).
This new rule starts tomorrow on Monday, July 18, 2022. Your WRUW picture must be in compliance. One of the problems with the 1WC WRUW pictures is their inevitable sameness: same watch, same wrist. Boring.
So, let's spice it up using @Deeperblue 's photo theme thing. Each day for the next week you must incorporate an object into your WRUW picture. There is no extra credit for cleverness, but forget, and the swag won't be yours. The mandatory list:
Monday: a hammer;
Tuesday: a flower;
Wednesday: a magazine (remember those?);
Thursday: a potted plant (in Australia these are called "pot plants" which I find endlessly amusing);
Friday: a carbonated beverage;
Saturday: an insect;
Sunday: a food that is not native to your country of origin (a burrito in Canada for example, or for the UK food with flavor).
Too much? I gave it to you in advance so that you can plan. If anything, it's too easy.
