Fall Cleaning Event!
« on: Sep 19, 18, 07:40:50 AM »

Though this event is better known as our "Summer Incentive"  or "Spring Cleaning" event we've repackaged it as Fall Cleaning because, let's face it, we should clean year round.

Over the past few years this event has been incredibly successful:
  • 2011 was our first summer of running this event and we tidied up and locked 27 threads.
  • 2012 was our second summer and we challenged the board to beat the 27 threads from 2011, and you guys pulled it together and trounced that mark by locking 53 threads
  • 2013 was our first spring, but third time running the event, and locked a total of 43 threads during the event.
  • 2014 was our most successful event with 124 threads closed.

Since last event we've accumulated and written a lot of posts and once in a while we lose track or they drop off. This fall we're empowering all members to finish their arcs and open threads!

Compose a finale post (or several!) to close out any unfinished thread, include "The End" in the finale post, then lock it. You'll earn 25% of the points you earned for the ENTIRE thread, regardless of when it was written.

So for example.. if I finished a thread in which I earned 100 points, I would receive a bonus of 25 points for completing it; and that's on top of any points I earned for the posts it takes to complete the thread.

What are you waiting for? Get to it!

You have six weeks (ending October 31) to complete your threads. Points will be calculated throughout the event and posted in batches.

The event starts TODAY!



Submit Your Closed Thread

To help ease some of the workload on the Staff for this event we're requesting that everyone who finishes a thread use the form below to submit it for the points bonus.

Code: [Select]
[b]Thread:[/b]
[b]Thread Link:[/b]

The thread must include "The End" to indicate it is a closed thread, and it must be locked. If you cannot lock a thread because the originating writer is not around, leave an indication in your post that it needs HBC to lock it.



Please let me know if you have any questions or require clarification. All open/live threads are eligible but must have at least one post to close them out. For instance, you cannot return to a thread and go "oh yeah, this is done" and receive points for identifying a completed thread. However, it'd be super helpful if you'd point out these already-completed threads if you find any that aren't currently locked.

Use the "Lock Topic" option at the bottom of the thread, under the breadcrumb menu. The message icon option inside the post editor doesn't do anything but change the icon.

You'll need to communicate with your writing partners for those threads that they started, as you'll only be able to lock the ones you've started yourself.

Locked the above threads.

Your closing posts on the threads you locked will get you the bonus from the fall cleaning event. As most of them were less than 250 words, however, you'll still get docked a few points each post for not meeting minimum word count. If you want to go back and expand those posts to meet the minimum word count requirement before points are tallied at the end of the month, you're welcome to.

Just FYI!

let's say a thread gets two more posts from the people that are in it. do the bonus points only go to the person that says "the end"?

Yeah, just the final post triggers the bonus. This is aimed more towards cleaning up old abandoned threads rather than continuing current ones.

Home is behind, the world ahead, And there are many paths to tread
Through shadows to the edge of night, Until the stars are all alight.
Then world behind and home ahead, We'll wander back to home and bed.

Hullo friends.

Just to clarify, the Fall Cleaning Event is meant to encourage writers to close out and lock old threads. Rewards for this event will only be dispensed for threads that were initiated before the event began.

Both still need to be locked but are concluded.
