Your Quest

Postby Pattertwigs Pal » Jun 29, 2014 2:42 pm

Noble Knights, it is time to prepare for your quests. The Free Horses of Narnia and the North and the Guardians of the Toffee Tree will compete for the title. The contest will be run on Central time. It is suggested that for the duration of the competition that you change time zone setting on the forum to [UTC – 6] Central Standard Time WITH “yes” checked for Summer Time. Please read through the following very carefully.

Beside the HQ threads, each team will have a chat thread at their disposal. The Free Horse will use the Games and Blogs chatroom and the Guardians will use the General Movie Discussion thread. If you are caught in the other team’s chatroom, your team will lose 5 points.

Daily challenges:
The marshals will not post the points for a day until the following day. A day will be from 12:01 AM to midnight.
Games and Blogs Challenges:
At least 3 different members must post.
Teammates post 5 times in a row in a game - 5 point
Teammates post 10 times in a row in a game - 10 points
Teammates post 15 points in a row in a game - 15 points
One of these challenges is allowed per thread per day. You must post a link to the first post in the links thread by midnight Central time.

Around NarniaWeb Challenges:
Next to each the date, is listed a forum and a goal of the number of posts your team should try to make in that forum by midnight. You must post a link to your posts in the links thread in order for it to be counted. The marshals reserve the right not to count a post if it is too light in substance. Teams may post links to posts above the required number if they are worried about substance. Each post made up to the goal number will receive one point. The first team to reach the goal gets 10 bonus points and the second team 5 bonus points. The first team finished will be determined by the time stamp on the post itself and not the post in the link thread. At least 2 different members must post.

So apparently the directions I thought are crystal clear are actually muddy so I shall try to clarify.

What is the same as last year.
1. Teams are trying to earn points.
2. Forums are still featured.
3. Bonus points are still awarded for creativity and substance.
4. LWW is still featured for the month.

What is different.
1. We are asking you to paste a link to your posts in the link thread. (with more posting opportunities this will make it easier to for the Marshals to find posts)
2. More forums are featured.
3. Forums are featured for different lengths (a day at a time or a month)
4. G&B daily - instead of trying to post as many times as possible, the goal is to work with your team to get 5, 10, 15 posts in a row.
5. Daily featured forum (ex. GMD), instead posting as much as possible in the forum you are given a daily team goal. (This is to help prevent burn out and minimize the effects of team members who are vacationing, etc.)
6. Instead of being awarded points by per post in the monthly challenges (posts in Man Behind the Wardrobe and LWW) points will be awarded for groups of 5 posts (basically, you want to post in these two forums as much as possible)
7. Fan Art is now included. Each week your team should try to post a certain number of works of art (see the weekly sections for details).

General advice:
When in doubt post a link. The marshals will decide if the count or not. I would suggest keeping a list of your links in a document until you are finished posting for a time.

I put together the quests in a calendar forum. This is to supplement not replace the quest post. Hopefully, this works:
