I'm curious to why I can't find it anymore? I thought it was an entertaining thread. :confused:

I'm presuming I broke some kind of rule, sorry in that case. Nevermind then. :happysad:

it was deleted at about midnight my time, 6am UK time..
it had been noted that the original picture was cropped on the left side and some extra bands (pet shop boys etc) were noted and added.

i'm not sure why it was deleted, as with all things on this site i'm sure the reason was sound and just don't see the need to question it. my assumptions are either bandwidth issues or it was just 'done'..

EDIT: just noticed this is in 'suggestions' for some reason.. assumed it was in braindroppings.
i was not.. repeat NOT trying to pull a johnny kuntz there, i wasn't trying to imitate staff..

i just loved that thread too and wanted to inform it's daddy how it died.. :sobs:
/me looks around, hopes nobody saw me cry.

I got the picture from an e-mail. I just had a look for it on the internet. it's actually 74 bands not 75, and yes, the picture I used was missing a part on the left; namely the pet shop, two boys and a little dog. -the last 2. :happysad:

my bad, sorry guys.

ah, shit. now i feel like a right moron. sorry again. :emo:

It was removed because it's an actual ongoing contest for individuals to win prizes from the Virgin website.

BTW: The bands cropped out of the picture were Pet Shop Boys, Cake, and possibly Lil Bow Wow.

The competition ended on the 28th of november. Answers were in the The Sun (British newspaper). That's what I've heard from my friend who sent the e-mail. But nevermind.

Piro, you want to keep digging yourself deeper?

Official Rules - Heavy Inc.’s (“Sponsor”) “Virgin Digital Giveaway” (the "Promotion") shall start at midnight Eastern Time (“ET”) on November 15, 2005, and shall end at midnight ET on December 31, 2005 (the “Drawing Date”).

Since it is an INDIVIDUAL contest, it was removed. If it was a group contest, then it would be different.
