Okay, this is an idea I proposed in the staff forum which I'm officially bringing out into the open. To promote activity, I'll be running an event from late October through November known as Shredsgiving (working title).

The purpose of Shredsgiving is simple: To pay thanks to the awesome board we've all been a part of for so many years. The best way to do that is to get as much activity as we can in as short amount of time as possible.

The main event of Shredsgiving will be The Big Race. Everyone willing to compete will be organized into a team. You will decide on a team name and banner, and you are suggested to promote as much team pride as possible. The point of the teams is this: Over the course of Shredsgiving, we will monitor your team's posting records. These posts will be tallied into one final count, and the team with the most points will be named the Kings and Queens of Shredding and win an as of yet unnamed Super Awesome Prize (Xeo, please PM me about this.)

During Shredsgiving, I will also host a series of games (hopefully one in every major forum) that will allow your team to accumulate "Bonus Posts". I will also award Bonus Posts to members who bring in more active members, create new schemes and banners or do something extraordinary for the board. Even if your team does not post the most, if you try 100%, you still can come out on top!

If you're interested (which I certainly hope everybody is!), please post here. The preliminary deadline for sign-ups is the 17th. Shredsgiving will most likely be from October 23-November 23, so even if you know you can't post some days, be sure to show your Xeogaming Pride!

What are the team sizes and rules?

The willing members will be split into (likely) 3 or 4 teams, depending on which makes things more even.

The rules (not yet set in stone) are as follows:

*Each regular post will reward your team one point.
*There will be random bonus hours, where every post in that hour will count as two posts.
*Getting a new member to join will bring your team ten points, and every post after their tenth post will award your team one point.
*Lengthy posting sprees between two teammates will be forbidden.
*No excessive spam. Posts are allowed to be ridiculous, but repeated one word or one sentence posts run the risk of not only being uncounted, but counted as penalty posts (so, if you have 1000 team posts (including spam), and twenty posts are counted as pentaly posts, you will only have 960 points.)
*Flaming will reward you super penalty points (-15 for each post with a flame).
*Teams are allowed one "fortress" thread where they may post actively amongst themselves, but these threads will be monitored for unfair posting sprees between two members.

Those are the rules in progress.

EDIT: Also, team captains will be chosen after teams are orgainzed. The teams will nominate a captain and vote on them amongst themselves.

Any bonus points for those things that automatically come above your avatar, I forget what they were called, maybe because it has been dead for that long.

Good news everyone, there is no FAQ.

"Fortress Thread". That has a ring to it. This had to start the day after I leave for Korea. How nice. There won't be that many teams since not a whole lot of people are active here.

Nagis needs to like, have his own team. His posting alone could destroy all of the rest of us.

But yeah, like I said in the staff forum, I'm in. Let me know if you need any help running the games.

Oh, also, we should have a thread going which has the current scoreboad, and is updated everyday when the XPW resets.

I'm not an event person. Not joining a team.

But I'll try and monitor things so no rules get broken.

So when do we start choosing teams? It seems like a long time to wait, but I guess ending it on Thanksgiving will be cool.

I was wondering about something- are posts from "that" forum going to be counted as well?

1. The weekend of the 17th, unless I can get a post from every active member here before hand.

So far I have Maddox, Vulkar, True, FX, and insectduel.

I'm not sure if Spartan, Cyro, and Nagis are participating (you guys are very vague).

The only definite no as of so far is Astrophel (understandable. I probably will need your help).

Waiting on news from Rogue, Stitch, Shuyin, Kyoku, Xeios, Roah, Xeo, Char, Ryan, Katana, Elara, Valhalla...

2. I will count any non spam or flame posts. Anywhere, basically.

If there's any concerns or comments you want to address to me, IM me at Americanaut.

Well everybody should know I like participating in board events. I've been posting quite frequently lately, so I shouldn't be a vague candidate.

Yeah, I think the massive pointage you'd earn from flooding this place with posts is syndrome enough...

Cairoi, I do this every day.

Edit- Trolling should be a rule too until then.

Not participating.
