2007-02-08 [Hedda]: Looks like a good start! I'm 100% behind you... The important word being "behind"
I'm not going to lead this one, nor make things happening. But I'll fix stuff and correct things missing and stuff like that.
2007-02-08 [Hedda]: The image thing though:
I think we should run two competitions. One for photos (and real looking photo manipulations) and one for art (drawn or fantastic/arti
2007-02-12 [xido]: Sounds like a deal. I will ask [Angel Dreamer] and [Linn Scarlett] from the WFR Guild Members for their input of help as well, to make sure that nothing lags behind (I understand and appreciate you stepping down from leadership in this.... ;)). They are currently the ones working on the Creature_List as mods, so it will directly relate to what they are doing with the content on those pages.
I will ask [Artsieladie] for her input on running the image competitions, and - for the Photo Contest - you want me to run that one all year, 'til 2007 December?
Also, now that I see how to use the 'View Diff' feature on wikis, I can see how to best evaluate the text contributors..
Key idea: Undead Clan is my idea for the GOP rp that I am setting up.... BUT, it is also a members group that could be considered a singular entity, and all non-Clan members who post contributions would then be singular entities. That way, when a winner needs to be chosen, the moderator is not overwhelmed by trying to figure out who did what (and IF they were a part of a group). A single group could post as a group, and all the other people could post as independent contributors, or else join the Undead Clan (which is the only group entity posting as a singular unit), and add to their final contribution. If the Undead Clan's singular contribution is the best in the end, the whole Clan gets the badge that they could have earned as a single contributor.
Further, by having the Clan structure (and being a sovereign organization), Clan images, ideas, graphics, media, and ET-specific stuff can be made for groups members to join into the wikipage group. It makes both an info page (made by team members), and a Clan page, which means that it will be even easier for Elftowners to join a group of their choice.
Ideas, ideas, ideas.... :/
2007-02-12 [Linn Scarlett]: I will try and help but I am not sure if I can, I am using my supervisor's fieldcomputer right now -because I have no life and need internet to be happy :P- Corrently I am in a tent in the middle of Drente-nowhere
2007-02-13 [Hedda]: The image-contest is a piece of cake to run and I'll help you with that. If [Artsieladie] is leading it, she'll have a problem to be in it, and that would be sad
Yes, run the photo-contest until Dec 2007, and we'll see how people find such long running contests. It hasn't been tried before, and I want to know
2007-02-13 [Hedda]: There: What about that division? I'm not trying to boss around, I'm just suggesting.
2007-02-13 [Kim_Lundin]: Well, I've never really helped with a contest before, but there's a first time for everything, right? I'll help if I can, but I may need someone to point where I'm supposed to run.
2007-02-14 [xido]: To Kim, Silverfire, and Linn: Any and all help is appreciated, so thank you all.
To Hedda: I understand completely.
As for the Clans, please see Fantasy Race GOP and Minorities and Minority Case #1 for info on the Clan divisions. It was originally begun as a sort of Elftown Fantasy Race Council RP, but I think it might make for a good idea for new ET groups for people to join, based on their interest in fantasy races.
I know you are not bossing, Hedda. You have a lot to deal with every day, and I understand your methods. ;)
2007-02-14 [xido]: I am thinking of instating a new rule this time around to help from having people join a group and us not having any idea who is grouped or teamed with whom....
Any person who does not want to enter the Text competition as a singular person must join the Undead Clan of the Fantasy Race GOP and Minorities in order to be considered a team entrant. If the Clan's overall submission is the best, everyone in the Clan (that enters something that the Clan would keep track of...) would get the badge that simply one person would get if they entered by themselves. Two birds with one stone... ;)
Let me know what you think, Hedda.
2007-02-14 [Hedda]: Is there anyone who wants to join as a group? People tend to belong to many "groups" while they're writing on different parts.
2007-02-23 [Artsieladie]: Aww, [Hedda], I appreciate your comment, but I'm really not too much into vampire art, but dragons & unicorns loom on the horizon, so this will be fine with me. Ok, with Pegasus, it's Pegasus Elftown Art for the posting of the art entered on ECM Pegasus Image. So wouldn't Vampire Elftown Art be the equivalent for the vampires to Pegasus Elftown Art? Shouldn't it be ECM Vampire Image for the art entries of vampires? Also, will there be a similar pattern with regards to the vampire photos? Since this is a huge project involving many creatures, wouldn't it be best to follow a pattern that's similar throughout. ;P
2007-02-27 [Hedda]: OK, I've started this now!
2007-02-27 [xido]: I see the news item.
2007-02-27 [Artsieladie]: Ok... just thought you might have had a reason for using "image" instead of "art". :P Once I understand the flow, I have no trouble going with it, surely. :)
2007-02-28 [xido]: The flow has begun. Hopefully there will be entrants for these portions soon too. ;)
2007-03-02 [Hedda]: Sounds reasonable, unless someone has a better idea.
2007-03-02 [Artsieladie]: Is there a reason for having each member's poem on a separate link, instead of all the poems being on one page? :P Added the link, alphabetically
2007-03-02 [Hedda]: I think the poems should be placed on different places, if the pages get too huge. Until that, I think they can be written on one page.
It's a very good name. The ECM-pages are only "temporary" pages that only will be used until we have the proper pages ready, but Vampire Poetry will look good from the beginning, so I see no problem with the name.
2007-03-03 [Artsieladie]: Ok. :) It's a good wait 'n' see idea, b/c there were only 3 or 4 poems for Pegasus. Actually, Pegasus Poetry came up quickly on the net. Hopefully, Vampire Poetry will do the same. :)
2007-03-04 [de Morte]: If I submitted a photo, may I submit a poem?
2007-03-04 [de Morte]: Thank you!
2007-03-04 [Artsieladie]: You're welcome!
2007-03-05 [Hedda]: Gah!!! No kitties on a vampire page! Especially not such yummy looking one! It might be sucked dry by some hungry beast!
2007-03-05 [Artsieladie]: Ahh, but the "yummy kitty" has it's own defenses! Might be a "kitty vampire"! lol
2007-03-06 [Hedda]: Maybe we should start a contest for animal vampires too?
I wonder what a vampire vampire bat would be... The same, but harder to kill and less visible in mirrors? And probably sucking from its mates instead of from cows, humans and such.
Vampire rabbits seem cooler
2007-03-06 [Artsieladie]: lol Have you read the story about the vampire rabbit called "Bunnicula"? :)
2007-03-10 [xido]: I have.... scary stuff, those vampire bunnies... XP
Animal vampires would be part of the term, since a vampire is more of a changed creature (template) than a species in and of itself. But that still leaves room for vampire rabbits and kitties. :P
2007-03-12 [Kim_Lundin]: Vampire kitties... as if they didn't have sharp enough fangs already. <_<
2007-03-26 [Artsieladie]: Yeah, really! If you don't get the needle sharp teeth attack, there's always the needle sharp claws! I certainly have a few remaining reminders of such, for sure. But...kitties are cool in spite of their defence system. :D
2007-03-31 [de Morte]: Please join!
2007-05-15 [Sershine]: Can someone explain me how to upload a picture ?
2007-05-16 [xido]: Gosh, you are resourceful, milady. ;)
2007-06-16 [xido]: Thank for the closing notations, Artsie.
I am moving this weekend, so I will not be able to work on this until next week. Wish me luck.
2007-06-16 [Artsieladie]: *nods* YW. Good luck with your move. Hope everything goes smoothly. :D
2007-06-18 [Saya`]: May I ask why the vampire photo contest is opend till November, and all the others stop around June? Or is that just a dumb question?
2007-06-19 [Saya`]: Ah..I see ;)
2007-06-27 [Hedda]: For some reason, not even Elftowners dress up as vampires every day, so I think it's a good idea to give them plenty of time to do it. And we do want the best Halloween pictures, don't we?
2007-06-27 [Artsieladie]: For some reason? lol Of course! :D
2007-06-27 [Hedda]: I think they want to be screwed by Buffy, but they also don't want to be dusted, so it's a matter timing, I guess...
2007-07-06 [xido]: @.@p lmao!
Yes, it's true that not enough people dress up everyday, but I would say that our elftown-vampir
I think we should open up one or two of the dragon sessions (or any of them that are ready, for that matter) while that one is still going, and announce the winners of the ECM Vampire all at once, like [Sunrose] suggested to me... But that is just my opinion.
I also would like some input on the working rules of the ECM RPG Sessions, if anyone has a moment...
PS - the move went well, now is the finding of a decent job that I will not loathe working at... ;) That's where I need luck! I am going for something related to media and graphics and/or communications
