Kael's Christmas Event! Points can now be spent!

Postby Kael » November 28th, 2011, 9:32:59 pm

**EDIT**I deeply apologize to everyone, but all my files were wiped from my computer. It's not working well at all right now, and there are multiple things wrong with it. I have currently loss ALL my art files and will not be able to make everyone their badges in a very timely manner. I am extremely sorry for this inconvenience, but I hope you will still be able to join in on my first event Somewhat resolved, but I'm still a bit limited...
Problem solved! :yey:

So I planned to have Christmas giveaway this year for my friends in real life like I did last year, but then I wanted to host an event of my own for you guys here on MagiStream as well. It will sort of relate to the pictures I hand out to my real-life friends, but I will have prizes for those who participate here. c:

And I hope for you guys to enjoy it as well.

If the sentence or paragraph begins with a *, then it indicates that the sentence is discussing important general information or rules.

There is a free option, which everyone gets, and an option to spend a little bit of gold if you feel the free option is not enough.

*You may join at any time before or during the event
*Please fill out the form so I will know that you are joining
*In a way, it is a guessing game. I will release a picture a day, which I will post here. They will be posted on my two dA accounts if you wish to follow those, as well
*You guys will get THREE free guesses per day to guess what type of animal will be on the card (please do not ignore this rule)
*You may start guessing as soon as you post the entry form. Your first guesses can also be in the same post
*I will give hints regarding the animal on the card the day before that card is released, so it will not be a complete shot in the dark
*Each correct guess give you one point, which I will keep track of
*Your guesses do not have to be too specific, but they cannot be too generalized, either! (elaboration in spoiler below)

*These points can be spent at the end of the event (January 1, 2012)
*You cannot earn more than one point per day
*There will be multiple prizes (no gold or creature prizes, just art from me), but some will not be revealed until the event ends
*points can be saved even after the event ends; you have as long as you need to decide what to do with your accumulated points

I hope I broke that down alright. I apologize if my explanations are confusing D: If they are, please let me know!

*Now if you don't think that three guesses are enough, you have the option to buy another guess for 1k each
*You may buy up to 5 extra guesses
*The trade must be sent before or after you post you guesses for the day or else your extra guess will not count
*This means 3 free guess + 5 bought guesses = a maximum of 8 guesses per day
*If possible, I would appreciate it if you could post your guess in a format similar to this: (look at spoiler below, please)


There is also a mini-badge that I will prepare for everyone who it participating. It will have your username on it, so nobody can enter without me knowing (so I can properly keep track of everyone!). You may post the badge anywhere on MagiStream you want c: It will also be linked to this thread

Form:
Code: Select all
[color=#800000]I Would Like to Join![/color]
[b]Username[/b]:


It should look something like this:

Simple, right?

This is a daily event, because I didn't think up of another way to host the event I had in mind. And this is the first event I've ever held, so please excuse my mistakes ^^; If you have any suggestions or questions, feel free to ask!

~This is still a work in progress until the event starts. I will release the first hint on Nov. 30, and I will post the first card on Dec. 1.

'Prizes' and 'Rewards'

Postby Kael » November 28th, 2011, 9:34:11 pm

**Points can now be spent~
When you are spending points, please say specifically which sprite you want, how many points is it, and total points spent.

If you are short 1-2 points, I will let you still have the sprite, just please mention it in your post.


...and if you have extra, you can opt to either:
-gift the points to another user (just mention their username)
-ask for random SB creatures (I will send one per point)

~Places~

Accumulated the most points:
    1st: silflame - 33 points

    2nd: Piney - 31 points

    3rd: Hanako - 28 points

*Point totals can be viewed in the above post.

If you participated for __ days, you get ___ points


There will also be rewards that can be bought with points! They will be little sprites, and some will have very simple animations. But the actual sprites will be a surprise until the end of the event, so do not fret if you don't think you can win any of the prizes!

Besides, prizes aren't limited only to those who have participated the most or to those who have the most points. Points can be spent on little prizes like these:
Elks- 1 point each

Narwhals- 3 points each

Unicorns- 4 points each

Ice Phoenix - 5 points

Kitsunes - 4 points each

Reindeer - 6 points each
