2017 Word Garden
« on: May 29, 17, 12:19:44 PM »

To celebrate the coming of the summer months we're bringing back our popular Word Garden event!

During this event the Production Council & HBC will provide a list of 100 words. It is your goal to use them in your posting over the course of the month. You can use one word per post OR one per application. Once a word is used it is taken out of circulation. If the board collectively uses up all 100 words then there will be an undisclosed bonus to all those who participated!

Here is the tracking spreadsheet with the words! You must reply to this thread indicating which word you used and supplying a link to the post it was used in. Another writer will then verify your word usage and update the sheet accordingly.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1UVASDy6LRBajGRFVMt3d7IykxjzvaCBtM3YcGbLgdsQ/edit?usp=sharing

Code: [Select]
[b]Word:[/b]
[b]Post:[/b]

You will receive 10 points per word used, be it in a post or application. Applications must at least be in review before the word can be considered used. Do not post for applications until they are in ready for review status.

All words used in post should be formatted so we can see them - use the following code to do so:
Code: [Select]
[b][glow=red,2,300][color=#ffff83][u][acronym=the definition]word[/acronym][/u][/color][/glow][/b]
Make sure to include the definition with the acronym tag - afterall this event is about learning, not just about using ten cent words to impress one another!

Peer Approvals

This year we're bringing back peer approval! To alleviate the amount of work needed to support the event by Council members, any member can validate a word's proper use on the Spreadsheet. All validation efforts will receive a 5 point bonus!

The Word Garden will run from June 1st to June 30th. Enjoy the month long event!

Good luck!


P.S. No using these words until June 1st! This is our June event.
