welcomeBy way of reminder, the object of this game is to solve the clue presented by the previous poster and then set your own clue.

Anything from the (worldwide) crossword arena is acceptable by way of clue style, but if you stray from the pure path beware the scourge of... ...Pandora's WET NOODLE! scared

The puzzle could be an old favourite or something of your own making. Don't be shy: this is for everyone, not just the old hands!

There is nothing to prevent (say) a couple of related clues if offering a single clue cramps your style.

If there are multiple answers involved, there is no restriction against one person solving all and the solver of the final clue/part is the one who goes next.

Obviously you need to await confirmation of a correct answer before posting your own puzzle, but please then do so reasonably promptly: if having answered correctly you are not going to be able to set a follow-up clue within about the next 24 hours, please pass your turn to someone else so that the game does not stall.

To save the poor demented solvers from excessive brain damage, hardwall you should consider giving a hint as to letters when the question is set, unless the answer is relatively short/easy so that provision of a letter hint at the outset would spoil the sport!

If no-one is biting within about 24 hours you are encouraged to start dropping additional hints.

To try to give everyone a fair crack of the whip, the immediately previous setter is asked not to post a solution to the current clue within the first 24 hours.

The weighty trophy to be passed to whoever successfully solves your clue is the jewel-encrusted World Clue Federation Championship Belt ===[**WCF**]===

Constructive criticism and cheerful badinage are to be expected,
not to mention a certain amount of national rivalry, but above all, have a bit of fun! rah catrub

Next clue (not my own):
Little imp returned in passing (5-5)

Here you go: ===[**WCF**]===

(Your explanation is actually a bit garbled, but I think you probably meant to say short-lived = passing)

You're right, my explanation is a little backwards. I'm glad you know what I meant to say! lol

It should have been:
little = short
imp returned = lived

It's said she dined colorlessly to put herself in favor (10)

Didn't this clue come up on this thread quite recently, possibly courtesy of CD?

I liked Panda Sue's "loved one " clue.

Monster is step away from becoming intimate! (5)

Answer is f(r)iend

I can't call this one legal. I like the "step away" possibilities, but to say the phrase means "subtract R for Right step" is way over the line.

Sorry manxman. Five lashes.

Early clue - direct is on the left and it's a slightly unusual word...

OK, time for the normal clue - there is no homophone involved, and "wrongly" is not an anagram indicator think

I don't know how manxman solved this one! lol

Sorry Rog, but the word "undone" does not indicate an anagram of the word "done".

And yet, you warned us in advance. I think one lash will do. This time.

margarita?
marg = gram (weight knocked back)
a rita = a girl

"put on" serves as position indicator?
