My Ranking Points
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 about 2nd part but still). We can do a trivia contest and the winner gets gifts from the person hosting the trivia thing.
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 have fun, and let people know how it was, so that they know how it could be.
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 age users who are somewhat active and people who have their contacts, Also, berry for party planning and we need people to organize some of the events for it. When we find enough people to run the event we can then post tag lists about 1-2 weeks before it starts so we can put everyone on the recap tag list.
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
Ahh I feel like I shouldn’t have commented and intruded but can I just say i love this idea!! This idea came from Pinker’s activity, right? I went through a while ago and stumbled upon her posts asking older users about their memories, I favourited all of them
It was just so lovely to read about everyone’s memories and site experiences and the people they knew, and it made me think about my memories of the site and, it reminds me of how much this place has become to me and how much of an adventure it felt like and all the wonderful people I met and continue to meet and I’m ranting – I’ll stop, I think you get the message
I could talk about my site memories of you want? I won’t be on in April- May time for when you guys do this because that’s exam season for me but I still wanted to tell you guys that I think this is amazing 🙂
Also, I’m sorry for snooping!! I’ll leave to your planning
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, I’m thinking about putting some of the event info on the hangout later on. Any responses yet?
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 so strange to me that we, the users, are spread all over the world, yet we are so, so similar to each other and are like a family. A family that’s never met. That’s so special. And meeting you was amazing. Who would’ve thought that I would’ve met someone who I regard almost like my sister, but lives so far away from me and is two years younger than me? And meeting so many other people who I regard as my family: @prstncharlie, @PINKELEORA08, @KAYLA-T, @PRINCESSOFAUSTRALIA24601, and so, so many more. I wish there was a rewind button on the site. I wish we could rewind so I could see all my family again. I know a lot of us are off the site, and it near breaks my heart that I’ll never be able to hear them again. I wish we could search up the memories, the users, the posts, that made me as a 12-year-old, a 13-year-old.
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, @boomboompancakes, @pugsforever, @polabear11, @tailagrace, @bandito
Also, I think now we could work out more of the detailed aspects of this event now. So how should we start it out? Should we have one event a time, or have multiple events occur at the same time?
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 have activities based around that…
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 something leading up like Crystal week like cove said. It could be leading up the may 14th, or the release date of the one true king. Both are important dates in the SGE publication as well. And Mabye we can look at events from past site events to get inspiration for this one?
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 theme, and put the username underneath or above it. Another thing we might want to do is ask some of the newer users about their memories on a post, to bring both together.
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, things like that. Maybe someone could make like a video compilation of SGE? Or something? Not sure if that would work, but still… and we could also have a day where we all appreciate each other. Like, ENA Appreciation day. Oh, and I think we need a name for all of this. How about…. OldandNewUnite or UnitedWeStand or OldNewandSGE or something along those lines
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 anyone here knows how to do those.
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 send me the videos I can get them connected and stuff.
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
Here’s the doc. So yeah… it has barely anything in there…
**** me being late but I have the doc so thanks
