"100 shard give away"

Post by Hitori on Mon Sep 24, 2012 5:50 am

Feel free to post answers in this thread or PM to me in game if you wish.
Hope this will make things clear now xDDD

If you would like to be put on an "important update list" PM me in game. Though checking in here is still recommended.

The reason
It seems a bit odd that someone would spend money on shards... then turn around and give them away. Correct? Well, not for me - I've been doing it for years, in other forms... never in an online game. I've noticed that a majority of users have a hard time gathering their shards for that aura, or for a reroll on a Res or Zan. So when I heard that Lsm was planning a shard appreciation event I thought: What a perfect time to plan something of this manner.
I pondered quite a while, I could have just have 5 people lolpm me and taken the first 5... but that excludes all the people that can't be on at the time I am. So finally, after asking a few users of our community I decided on a mini-event. I hope this event to be a success, as it's the first time I've done anything like it. So please, leave feedback on what I could have done better or do different... after the event is over. Who knows, if it turns out well I may do something similar to this in the future!
Now, without further ado... the event itself:

Staff award section
This thread's primary function is the poll for the staff only portion of my shard event, though it will contain most of the information on this mini-event. First off, I'm doing a staff only portion to show my deep appreciation to the staff that volunteers their time to keep this community going. I'm speaking from personal experience when I say: I know how annoying it can be. Users, even staff, please vote for your favorite staff member - remember, this person will win 20 shards. Again, thank you for everything you do. **Poll ends noon Monday the 1st of October.** IF poll closes before then, pm your vote in game.

Bahahaha, Hitori always fails: You can still vote for Nameloc1667 - I derped typing the list. My apologies T.T

Chi-edit: Nameloc1667 added to the poll options.

User award section
To avoid an unnecessary amount of threads I ask that you post the name of your favorite user. The user that gets the most votes at the end will win 20 shards. Only votes posted 7 days after the creation of this thread will be accepted. ~ 24 hours, 1PM Game time on the 25th, until this is dropped and a new event selected. If you wish this to stay, please post your votes~

Natural problem: A majority of users will vote for themselves~ New event to take this one's place, sorry for the inconvenience.

Arbitrary Question
This is the time to let your imagination shine. Now this question really has no right or wrong answer. I will be evaluating the answers, along with a couple other people. Three top answers will be pulled out and given 'first', 'second' and 'third'. The other two judges aren't part of the WoB community, so that favoritism of a user isn't a problem. You guys that don't like this sort of thing, don't worry! There's still two three more events and I'm sure you'll find yourself fitting in one. ** Due to the nature of this event, I find it necessary to offer a little bit extra to the second and third place users.
Only answers received by midnight game time on the 27 are accepted.

** This event was fairly hard to determine the winner. We sat down for a couple hours just talking about how we were going to determine who won. We assigned a point value... each of the three of us could award up to 10 points per answer - the one with the most, obviously, won. They were all great answers for the most part, if you didn't win don't feel bad.

<V> Prizes <V>
1st) 20 shards
2nd) 15mil souls/yen
3rd) 10mil souls/yen
4th) 10mil souls/yen - Fourth place is really a 'second' third place. We had a tie between Zeke & Ava, so I decided to just give them both a yen/soul reward.

Clarification**
For this section, answer the following question: Why do people care about what 'everyone' is doing

Riddle
Color of blood i am , my power no one can withstand. I rule this dark, fruitful, part of the land. My 7 deadly sins by me they stand.

Then answer was, Lsmjudoka:
-Blood is colored red - if oxygenated... he's the only red admin.
-Dark, he's the king of HM...
-Fruitful land - his rank.
-7 deadly sins - there are 7 other staff members.

Fourth & fifth event
TBA.


<V> FAQ: <V>
Q: Whut? Why are admins on the list? Lsm can have lolshardslol.
A: Because I wanted there to be admins included.
Serious answer: They're part of staff~
Q: Who can participate?
A: Everyone o.o;;


<V> Comment <V>
So this is just a popularity contest....
A: No, the favorite user was for because shut up.



The prize?
As stated in my journal - I will be giving the winning user of each event 20 shards, for a total of 100 shards.

Rules and other stuffz
1) Please, conduct yourself properly in this thread - flaming a user will result in the vote not being counted.
2) *Clarification: Please only vote once! - If it becomes apparent someone is cheating they will be disqualified from claiming their prize.
3) I reserve the right to extend any period of voting if need be (i.e. smaller than expected amount of votes.).
3a) I reserve the right to make slight changes to planned events, in a case by case manner.
4) If for some reason the winning user declines their winning, the prize will be offered to the next user in line until it is accepted.
5) The favorite user & staff member may not reflect your opinion, it's just for fun. Don't take it too seriously.
5 a) If favorite user doesn't turn out well within a few days, it will be replaced with another event and a consolation prize of 4mil will be paid to the leading user.
6) Have fun!
.::If it wasn't made clear: All responses, and answers, etc., should be made in this thread OR PMed to me in game, if you don't have a forum account/don't want everyone to see your answer::.

* If you don't have a forum account and wish to vote, please send me a PM with the subject "vote - staff/user" in game and I'll tally them.
** I reserve my vote in the case of a tie.
*** Shards transfers will occur at the same time, even though some events may be concluded before others. Please be patient, you WILL get your shards.
