    Haha.
    Okay... I've worked that one out already.
    Maybe someone new wants to join and guess first.
    So I'll bow out for a few days.... see you later.

    No problem.
    For the benefit of others, the answer to the previous clue is "short".


    Okay, here is the new clue:

    Gave up as fashion designer (8)

    Excellent. I like to see wheels in motion. Just like the wheels on my little gypsy caravan.

    When you revived this thread, I freaked out a bit because I couldn't remember the solution to the clue.
    But I managed to work it out for myself, lol, so we're good to go.

    I am ready for your questions everyone.

    Well, I'm glad you managed to get it

    The answer is another way of saying gave up, right? (or means it)

    Haha, well you know how the cryptic clues work. They only make sense AFTER you've worked out the answer.

    Yeah, the definition is pretty straight forward. The cryptic part is .... well, what you need to work out.

    Hmm... Well after mentally crying for the past few hours, I think the answer is resigned. Reason being, it's another way of giving up and fashion designer, being a job, also means you can quit your job, or resign, right?

    Aha, I can see you are still on form, ABH. You are correct, the answer is indeed "RESIGNED".
    The word and answer "resigned" is actually an anagram of "designer".

    Alas. I am unable to update the scoreboard or change the clue on first page.
    I'm afraid we will have to wait until my accounts are merged...

    Thanks ABH. Updated scoreboard and added new clue on first page.

    I know the answer to this one straight away.
    So I'll withdraw for a while and let someone else try their luck.
