15 Minutes of Fame!!!!!!!!

Astroflux welcomes this game within a game, played every 2-3 days barring any system updates or server issues. The game is mostly word play oriented, taking place in global chat and consists of a "challenge" a "time limit" and a few "hints" as to what direction the challenge is meant to go. there may be "limitations" placed on the game as well.

example:
Challenge: "Name a movie title with the word "flux" inserted or substituted in"
Time Limit: 10 minutes
Hints: looking for funny
Limitations: (optional) only 2 entries per player

example entries:
"Star Wars, The Flux strikes back"
"How Stella got her Flux back"


Rules:
1) all chat rules remain in place (violations will be dealt with just like normal)
-no swearing
-no racial slurs
-keep it appropriate
2) any entry outside of the parameters (ex. a tv show title) will be not considered for winning
3) no putting down of anyone's entry, you can say things like "nice one Dales" but no global judging for players input
4) once the time has been called, any further entries are welcome but will not count towards winning

Prizes
winners are awarded a range of prizes, usually a full load of cargo goes to the 1st place winner, but the winnings change daily, the winnings for each game will be announced at the end of each challenge and awarded to the winners within 24 hours.

how to win:
normally these games are judged by myself, but will sometimes be co-hosted and have a second judge as well. these are the tips to follow if you want to win:
1)pay attention to the hint, not what other people are submitting
2)extra points are given for them being funny,witty,and making sense
3)don't just throw something together and shout it out, making sense is more important than anything (example: "the fluxinator" this flows well, and does get the word into a title, but doesn't really make sense)
4)in game references are always best, but dont go overboard (example: "Flux Wars, the Nezarians strike Tefat" this is a good line to go down, but the submitter tried to force too many game references in)

Think you've got a good idea for a challenge?
private message me with your idea, if i use one of yours, i will contact you and we will coordinate for you to be online when your topic is used. You will be announced as the "co-host" for that game, and will get to help me judge the contest for the winners. You will not be able to submit answers to the challenge though.

Old Challenges
below you will find a list of the games that have been played so far. I will update this list as new games are held, and when the list gets too long move to a new posting. (i apologize for any players name being misspelled, i have to write these entries fast as the game is being played)

I've been really enjoying the 15 minutes of fame. It's always a hoot.

Keep up the strong work. If you would like a hand with the winning prize, I'm happy to help.

I can guess who won't be winning any time soon. But hey, I'm certain a full cargo isn't worth much to you anyway. :P
