Tasks / Add A Useless Rope

I seldom find in my adventures that a rope has been positioned in a way which fascinates me without being helpful, such as perhaps turning a piece of public art and a tree into the supports for a giant spiderweb.

You know, I wrote this task as a joke.

But I still like it, and its appearance as a real task is awesome.

What does it say about the Doktor, about us as a community, about this game, about our society, that adding useless rope is more points than adding useful rope?

This is not a criticism. This is a question.

The CAKES are evil. Of this, I am certain. This is why I joined Team FOEcakes. Tasking by day. Dispensing vigilante justice by night. Tremble CAKES! Tremble at my wrath!

I couldn't get the idea of a useless man-made spiderweb out of my head, and went for a very literal interpretation. I picked a spot in Golden Gate Park just slightly off a path, so that most passersby will never see it, but someone more adventurous ...

"A useless rope..." "To the Club House!" *Batman melody* Well, we soon discovered that we didn't have any "rope", but we had a spool of twine. We walked over to the parking garage and wondered how we could make this rope useless, but still cool. W...
