Yeeet! We Could start with the various ages of the site, and then elad up to the SM elections. Also we can do a food fight with 2-3 users randomly teamed together for us to know each other more well. And I think we should cover the site highlights, and also make a point about all about that drama so we can learn to not repeat it again.(not sure…[Read more]
People can write short stories and fanfics based on some new year’s and 5th book related prompts. Once we get all of the details done, we can start tagging people for the site recap.
We could do all sorts of things, including a memorial post. What I want to do is gather a lot of the older users together, and ask what they remember.
I agree with that. A memorial post would be great, and we can interview the older users like fudge said. Mabye we can do contests when older and younger users are teamed up with each other?
That could be fun as well. The cool thing is that I’m in touch with old users- or old users who are in touch with older users. I’m thinking that if we do this, most of the older users won’t come back, especially if they’re from the Golden Age. And I don’t think there are many MG war users left either… However, I don’t think that matters. Just…[Read more]
I agree with ur points, and the events could make the site even stronger. And when should we host it?
Cool! Mabye we could do it during April to May, since it’s quite a big event. Or we could start it before about 1-2 weeks before one true king gets published, and bc it’s summer break more people would join the event and partying.
That would be good since new people can have new ideas and more stories. It would give them an introduction to how the site has been all there years. And they would get more involved and meet more people here.We’ll invite cove and the other senior members, and other members too like blondie, orla, pinker13, and raynaevil. We can contact the golden…[Read more]
I think there’s a list of golden age users on the crystal week doc, we can used that
We should use that, that would be good. Plus, in talking to Pink, I listed a whole bunch as well, some of them might not be in that list. Let me talk to some of the users I’m in contact with, as well as Lyn. Once they give what they remember, I think we’ll have a good start.
That’s good! And for the newbies, we could post things about this around the site so they’ll know.
yeah, sounds good. I can talk to a few older users. Amber, Shade, Shadow, Gwen, maybe Tess, maybe POA, Tara, Isa, Olli, Noelle, and there may be more.
Those people would be good. I can talk to Orla, Willa, Adar, Ginger, Lyn, we’ll see about any others.
Good idea! Mabye we could start doing the older ones, and thx. The only elder member contact I have is Lynn’s so.. yeah. And that sounds good
Please do, Orla! You were one of the people we were talking about asking. Thanks for saving me the trouble of tagging you 😉
Responses are nil so far, but that’s expected for me. By Sunday, I should get two, hopefully, and I’m asking Lyn today.
*I come out of the shadows*
I can’t wait for this to happen! (Sorry. I just wanted to say that)
Oh! And, Lady, I probably said this before, but this is an awesome idea!
Good luck with planning, everybody!
Hey guys! And thanks for the compliments! Good to know that both of them said yes👍
I’m sorry, I accidentally deleted my comment.
So far, we’ve just been thinking up basic ideas, as well as contacting older users about their memories. Do you think that you could pull up some of the main ones from when you asked people?
Sure! The ones i can think of are Lyn, Gwen, Adar, Orla, Ginger, Pink, Rayna, and the golden age users. Also I saw in the comments that you got more info about the golden age users, and I contacted Lyn bot no response yet.(Idk if someone already contacted her ). And I saw a comment that you would talk to Orla, Adar, Willa, Ginger, and Lyn. Also,…[Read more]
I feel like I shouldn’t have found this ahaha
but good luck on planning, this sounds really cool!
No, it’s fine 😀
I should have asked someone with a less typically looked at activity to post about this XD
I have one response back so far. This is from Willa:
Oh, favorite memory? This is really for me, but creating the dress comp and expecting no one to get into it, but having close to fifty people ask for tags and close to 100 comments on each dress comp post. That was really special for me.
Some other favorite memories are meeting everyone. It’s s…[Read more]
Wow!!!! Just reading people’s responses makes me wish there was a way to rewind time.
I’d love to have Liv help! She’s a very good user to talk to, and plan with.
K! I’ll let her know.
And those are some people that Lyn sent me:
@shawnmendesfan, @annafan, @fairytalegirl123, @cuteypie1mint, @kiko55, @emmal, @fsa161, @otaku88
@darkfire2010, @evelynrose @salty12, @inlovewithbooks, @spiritdream1112, @themaplebacondonut, @foreverevil, @thedemigod1112, @stargalaxy9000, @itsmejazzy, @doveysapprentice, @boomboompa…[Read more]
Yeah that’d be fun! I got a response from shadow. Has anyone talked to cats? If not I can. Also in renfence to the list, tailte, Kayla, Orla, KW, Salty, and CatsRule should also be added. I think we should have like a week of events leading up to one big event? Like crystal week? And does anyone know what day SGE came out?
Ahh I recognized 90% of the people on that list. Cove, I like your idea a lot! It would be really fun to do all sorts of different events- and actually getting some of the active older users involved. There’s all sorts of things which we could do, based off of the theme- celebrating the old. We could even mention some things from the 1st book, and…[Read more]
That sounds great! We can reference some of book 3, and for celebrating the old we can do a live quiz in someone’s acitvity of the oldest things and people in the books. Or we could organize a contest of creating a bio for the readers from gavaldon? And @thecoven4ever we could add this people that you mentioned too!
And I think we should do…[Read more]
Oh and i also asked spiritdream1112 about a favorite site memory/book moment, and also some site recap event info. Still waiting for an response…
Ooh, the quiz sounds like an excellent idea. 😀 I also like the bio one… I’d love to lead up to the book 1 publication date, as that seems like it would fit in the most with our ideas. We need some way to organize the memories we’ve collected- perhaps on a doc? We could section things out like the Reader’s Story doc: divide things up based on…[Read more]
Yeah that’s a great idea! I think Book One release date is the way to go. We could have one day celebrating the times of old with like a timeline where everyone shared their best memories, another about the newest best memories, a bio contest, maybe another “search for the post” contest to get people looking through other users activities, thing…[Read more]
Nice plan!! Great ideas!!
Does anyone know that video… stuff whether you call it?
The names sound nice! I would help with the name, but I suck at that.
I could make one with iMovie, probably if people could fins SGE videos
I love the iMovie/general slideshow idea. I think that if we all worked with it, it could be really cool.
I thinking something like SGE Storylines or something like that for the title. It seems to fit, but if you have any ideas, do share.
Ooh the movie idea sound great! And I think we should make a doc about the site memories like the A reader’s story doc. Cove, and i think we should do the search for the post activity that you suggested. And love those names! But I don’t have any title ideas for the iMovie/slideshow thing…
Also the book 1 release date does fit the whole idea, now I think about it.
We should definitely have a doc! We could also do a little bio on a whole bunch of older users, like the Best Things About People doc. Things they did, what they wrote, who some of their closest friends were… That sort of thing.
Can I… make the doc please?
(Since I feel like I’m not really helping you guys with the planning)
And also I think the doc should be private until the event officially starts becuas of the issue with doc vandalism. And we should include a bit about the best thing about the users, it sounds great!
(Sorry ahh, I probably shouldn’t be commenting or have found this post at all, but I was looking through your activity, Fudgy [aaaand that sounds weird but whatever lol])
But I think this is a really cool idea! If you guys ever need help, I’d be willing to pitch in on anything! 🙂
(Now I’ll leave again hehe)
Thanks Leila! And how is the doc coming, @pinker13?
And while the doc is being constructed what about we think about some questions for the quiz. One that I was thinking about is when is the first time that Sophie sees Rafal?
I don’t think the font matters as long as itxs easy to read, and Idk about the title. I’ not really good with titles…
Hmm…for the quiz we could do like when’s the first time that who met who. Or Mabye the last thing a character did before they died or something like that.
Ooh, that could be fun.
If we’re going to do the iMovie/slideshow thing, we’re going to need to get a bit of a start on that now. I can do Google Slides, and share it with you, or possibly Powerpoint… Lots of black and white, for the theme, with splashes of bright colour. As for the doc, I can ask Erin how she did fancy borders and such, unless…[Read more]
I’d prefer iMovie simply bc its more professional and you can add music and stuff, but anything works! If we could ask people to submit their SGE fan art, writing, maybe songs that relate to SGE, things like that, I can put it all together. Oh and maybe we could get a couple people talking about SGE and what it means to them, and if they can s…[Read more]
IMovie sound great! And cove I think we should add some fan submitions to it. Should we make a post about it now, or can it wait till later? Meanwhile, I’ll work on some potential questions for the quiz. And for that I think we could include some questions about this site too.
Fan submitions, SGE contest winners, SGE parodies, that sort of thing. Also, have we gotten any responses for old users? I’ve gotten nothing from the two I’ve asked, but I suppose there’s lots of time.
Yes, ask Erin about the fancy borders for the doc! I shall get the doc soon! If I remember to do that since I have the memory of a (insert animal that has bad memory here).
I’ll tag her then. Also, I have no idea what animals have short animal spans XD
According to someone, it’s a goldfish. But Idk if that’s true tho.
Here’s the doc. So yeah… it has barely anything in there…
I FINALLY GOT A THEORY
So you know how the swans are always looking at each other for the past books, right? And I’ve figured that there are 2 opposing sides in each book like:
1. Good vs evil
2. Boy. vs girl
3. Old vs young / good vs evil again
4&5 truth vs. Lies
However, book 6 is the 1ST boom in the series that the swans are looking towards…[Read more]
That makes too much sense… YOU GOTTA BE RIGHT
sorry for my lack of proper grammar
And @Soman Chainani if you see this, can you please confirm it or at least tell me how it is? Thank you👍
hm…. I don’t think so, this was a little far-fetched after i read OTK and soman never replied to this. Still, it was a really fun theory to make!
Oh my god guys I think I just thought of something, but I need as many brilliant SGE minds on this as possible to see if this could be some gold mine I just hit or if I’m just going crazy.
So Rafal said The Schools and The Storian reflects back their Masters’ souls
So with The Schools that reflection is more obvious
Book 1: Good (sparkly, nic…[Read more]
Dude! Wth!! You cracked the code! You are a genius!!!
Best fan made theory ever.
This honestly blew my mind and rattled me a little. Well done on the theory!
How did you come up with this. This honestly makes so much sense!! I was wondering why Soman would choose to make two Rhian’s. Why choose a name you have already created for another character. And now that you explained that the Pen has no specific master. It needs something to wrote about, so it used the people of the woods. Amazing theory! Best…[Read more]
Thank you, ALL of you, so so so so much!! As for how I came across this whole theory, I was rereading the books and I came…[Read more]
this is so great! i reread the books too, but i never actually connected everything. u probably don’t care, but my patronus is a Siberian cat and obviously i’m a hufflepuff
Maybe tedros’ opponent is the storian but because man is pen the storian is a person now…
O my gods! What the frick!! BEST THEORY EVER!!! YOUR A GENUS!!!!
I HAD TO READ THIS TWICE TO MAKE MY EYES WORK.
G E N I U S.
So you’re saying King Rhian was a distraction so people would forget about SCHOOL MASTER RHIAN? Soman is a genius. So are you.
And when you said everything is connected to everything, I started to think why Evelyn would name her child Rhian….
Oof, but I have a feeling Soman might do this to mislead us into thinking everything we think is wrong, but he might also be right so…
Ooof that’s crushing…. But seriously your theory is so GOOOOOOOD! Wooow and the 2nd one really answered my questions
Aww well I still think this is a AWESOME theory. Really great job!
