SIGN UP BEFORE JULY 10TH!!!

Marv, Phatphil and I were talking and we think another scav hunt is in order.

Discuss possible methods or task suggestions we could use to make this one even greater and not burn out like the last.

i suggest:

-less teams, more people; let sign ups take place over more time.
-.05 increase in point value to a task for every day it goes uncompleted. round to the nearest point. (make points not 1 and 2 but like 5 and 10) to increase desire to do hard ones.

there should be a system to reward players who got all out on a task. no more eating gummy worms or shaving an inch of your leg.

Looking at the list, I see the first two pages in post count as being huge targets for who should be signing up. we have a ton of dedicated members! sign up for the scav hunt, even if you can only do one or two tasks!

thanks NFS.

What do you guys think about teams? should we have a third... or should it be just two this time?

With the amount we have now..Make it two teams. How they going to be chosen? We could do captains. I think that would be fun. We just gotta line everyone up on the line next to the wall.

OK like last time, yes it can be done, but you need to send the list to one of the mods to review before it gets posted. To make sure there is nothing that will get us in trouble.

Shunut has offered to be a judge. I will also offer to judge the hunt.

do you think we can do this w/o a break this time? I think we could try to make it easier on judges so they aren't bombarded (harder tasks) but i think the break really ruined it.

You definately just double posted.

What is this "break" I didn't do this last time, so I have no idea.

one of the judges had to go away for a week, so we had to put it on pause. in that time, everyone lost interest.

Depending on when you guys start, I might be on vacation as well, I didn't think of that. Although I'm pretty sure I will have access to a computer everyday I'm on vacation except maybe 2, because I'll be in a car. I'm leaving July 9th and will be back home around July 22nd. Although the only days I don't think I will have access to a computer will be July 9th, I'm going to try to get my mom to give up her laptop so I might have that. Then probably 2 days between July 19-22.

Yes you're welcome to. I don't know if we'll have a deadline but I guess if we get even teams we'll keep it even so any new comers will have to find a second player to make it "fair"

How are we going to choose teams? And if by captains..who's going to be the captains?

I can be one if need be although there are 2-3 weeks I'm not around in July and August so..

no need to choose teams until next week when we have an approved list.

i'd really prefer it if our dedicated members who haven't already been corrupted by modship played :rolleyes: but if you're not up for playing... we might add a judge for adding point values to people who went above and beyond... aka combos, vids etc.

sry, family reunion.... getting on top of the list. No, it won't make tasks unfair if you just come up with the idea... I'd modify them so they make more sense/are more general, then mods will look through them and make sure nothing is out of place or inappropriate. NO NEED FOR MORE JUDGES
