Eep... suddenly it makes sense! I'm a little rusty on my southern. Wink But, in that case... I agree completely! Take the idea and run with it! Or just plain run. Very Happy I'm sure either way, it'll be interesting.

so what is the status? Who is taking submissions? wont be up to it for awhile yet, but i would like to eventually submit something for this and the quilt, if that's still on. For this i think anything for the length, as long as it can end with 16swg 5/16" each end, maybe link them all together with 2 rings through the same hole, the way byzantine is connected. so as long as each end is easily connected, any weave, metal, ring size should be ok. Or should there be strength requirements, say, it should be able to support at least half again it's own weight? sounds like this project is having a lot of trouble settling on a standard. sounds pretty cool though.

I'd love to get in on this. Deffinetly byzantine, 5/16 16ga. easy and quick. It makes a real purdy chain too. So, whos gonna make the final decision? or should we all just send pieces to anyone of the few who have volenteered, you know, like the one who is closest to you, and let them get up with each other? Just an idea.

Has anything been established yet? I think HP 3-1 would be good because the more ring efficient the weave is the better. HP 3-1 has 8 rings to the inch with 5/16 ID, byzantine or box would be 3 times that. So we could make it three times longer by sticking to hockeyweirdos ideas.

I don't get it guys!!! why can't we all just agree on anything, literally??

it would be a much cooler chain if it has all different metals, weaves, and sizes!!!

There is a problem with the Guiness thing. Okay, there are 3000+ people on this forum say that only about a fourth or less people help with this chain. That's still about 750 people. Do you think that Guiness would want to put 750 names on the their pages?

750 names time 2 (for first and last name) is 1500 words not to mention the picture and the description. you know how much that would cost?

I'll help but we should each make about two feet each. that way less people will have to enter their chains and therefore less money to be spent on placing the record in the book.

If we each make two feet and there are 750 people (which I seriously doubt there will be) that is 1500 feet but if we get each person to make 7.04 feet of the same chain it would equal exactly one mile

okay lets say we're on a much smaller scale of maillers. lets say we have just 100 people (this might just be what we'll have. If we are to make 1 mile of chain you know how long each individuals chain would have to be? there are 5,280 feet in one mile divide that buy 100, that is 528 feet for each mailler. I, personally, think that is obsurd.

This is just me talking about a truely extrodinarily long chain but hey we're not even sure on the weave or guage or ID. oh well
