I've been asked to host and run a Secret Santa this year. Anyone that wants to participate just post here and on the 10th I'll distribute names to everyone via PMs so that everyone can get each other gifts. Edit: Because I was asked "What is this secret santa thing?" I provide some context: Secret Santa is a Western Christmas tradition in which members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they give a gift. The identity of the gift giver is a secret not to be revealed. Rules! Do not spend any money! This should all be home-made. Use your imagination! It might be an image edited, it might be a song, it might be anything! But the idea behind this is to have something that will cause a good impact, and that doesn't spend any money! And try to make it look nice, if possible! Remember that someone else will also work on a gift for you! Everyone will get their gifts! Do not share who you're giving the present to! The idea is for it to be secret! Also, do not give out your gift until the actual date! Me, or Nowea will be making a thread for the dispersal of the gifts, and everyone will be able to post the gifts from there on! It's a lot better if your gift is designed in some sort of way that fits the person you got! this is a young site, so you probably won't know much about the person you got, but you can always be creative, lurk what kind of things he/she posts, the mods he/she likes... Or you can just do something cool, regardless of who gets it. Lurkers be warned: You're invited to this! No one is obligated to participate in any sort of way, but these events make a community! It's a way to get to know each other and to integrate ourselves as a community! So don't be afraid to step in and say "Ah, fuck it. Let's do this!"
So, on the subject of trying to get some more activity here, I'll fully admit that I'm not all that great at coming up with events and the like, but something that seems to usually be a pretty good bet with you guys is speedrun tourneys. Now, I'm down for a speedrun tourney on a small scale, but I'm curious about a few things. Does anyone have any ideas for what they think would be interesting to speedrun? Does anyone have any ideas outside of a speedrun tourney that they'd like to put forth for an event? We're really open to just about anything at this point. Once we get enough suggestions, I'll see about picking one for us to start with, and if there's enough, we might even put them on some kind of rotation. Ideas! Post 'em! Let's go!
