    Member Zone Events Suggestion Thread

    Currently we have only a handful of non-Manga related forum events that we hold here; Valentine's Day, Community Awards, Scavenger Hunt and Secret Santa. These events can span from a number of days to event a number of weeks, and so the time it takes to plan and action them is usually according to the event duration.

    With that said, please use this thread to voice any ideas on non-manga events you feel could be fun to host here on the forum. The ideas you have may be still immature or rough, but using this platform, we can discuss and maybe combine them with other ideas to something more concrete.

    As per forum rules, please be respectful of other member's ideas and constructive with criticism. No bashing, insulting or any such behaviours will be tolerated.

    Please be aware and note that not all suggestions may be taken on board, or considered; depending on what other events are on, workload of the staff, time constraint and feasibility of the idea itself.

    We will try and involve members whose ideas we take on as much as possible, in hopes that it encourages more to members to come up with ideas too.

    Re: Events Suggestion Thread

    Reverse Community Awards

    - will have negative categories such as:
    Worst Username, Worst Staff Member,
    (though this may be a bad event and may start misunderstandings and quarrels )

    Change Personality Week

    -each participating members will be assigned to change PERSONALITY with other participants.
    meaning, they will use the avatar, sig, and post like how the assigned member to him/her

    ex:
    goldb will act like imperium and will always post "porn related jokes"

    Gaming Week

    -an event that will showcase different games in the website
    the games can be as simple as flash games or as difficult as detective games
    there will be lots of games and the best player of every game will be awarded at the end of the week

    Ultimate Mafia Game

    -the ultimate mafia game will be the biggest mafia game event of the year, the game's updates will be featured in the website, like hunger games and battle royale.

    Movie Awards

    -Oscars the MangaHelpers way. All members can nominate and vote for many different categories that is related to movies. There will be too seperate awards for All-Time and Current Movies

    Re: Events Suggestion Thread

    Sorry for the delay Faust, I had overlooked this post until now.

    Reverse Community Awards- That was mentioned in the discussion thread for the last awards( If I recall), or at least something similar. I think the outcome was that it'd bring too much negative discussions and may turn bitter so the idea was dropped.

    Change Personality Week- This seems more like something that would be better suited for the Fun Forum rather than a community event and it would require the user to check out a person's posts and know their habits.

    Gaming Week- Hmmm seems more like it's suited for the Video Games section this one.

    Ultimate Mafia Game- This I really like, the first thing I thought about was the broadcast/announcement of eliminations made throughout the forums, as well as general updates. I'll speak to our techs regarding the announcements stuff and a few questions about site tweaking as I really like the Hunger Game-type aspect of it.

    Movie Awards- That is actually something we've had planned since last year, but was set aside as we had other projects in the works that were seen as better suited to be launched or demanded more immediate attention. Once the project works begins again, I will give notice.

    The plan was to have an awards event for the whole of the General Categories; so it would include a music awards category, as well as film, politics/news, games, etc...

    The rest of these can simply be voted upon within their respective threads( if they have one), as I doubt the impact it'd have( mainly talking about the Literary awards here). You can simply start a voting/theme/event sorta thing within those threads, ie. a while ago there was a song vosting theme in the vost thread and then members voted on who sang best, the same can be done fort the voice acting. Boards Games Week, can simply be a thread in the Fun Forum where you play different games everywhere. All those at the bottom can be done by yourselves and so dont need our go ahead.

    How about a Search For New Moderator Contest?

    That's not how moderator recruitment works and it wouldn't be a good idea to do so. Only once during a very busy period were application for moderators made public, other than that, it is decided at staff level and the qualities the member can bring to the section and forum. It's not something that we feel should be held as an event.

    Re: Events Suggestion Thread

    Having categories for threads is a redundant as not all members frequent those sections, especially the Meet the Moderators sections; which is predominantely filled by FFers and staff members. Also, one of the only ways to gauge the threads would be spam/number of posts, which eliminates many of the other threads.

    Yes, it'll either be in May or July; depending what other event we have during this time. This thread lists all the current events we hold and the rough dates for them.

    Easter Egg Hunt was held last time. I thought it was the new scavenger hunt.

    The Easter Egg Hunt was held in March; and it's only for 3 days. In future, it'll be a mini-lead up to the Scavenger Hunt.
