PokéCommunity Get-Together 2012
Event Volunteering

Excited yet? The party is only a few weeks away (September 24 - September 30) and now the events are decided! We're all ready to go, right? Nope! We need hosts now, and that's where you guys come in. For those who don't know, the Get-Together is when the community comes together and participates in different events to have fun with other members. All of the descriptions describe what the event is about, but as for how they're actually run is up to the hosts! If you'd like to host an event just post what you're interested in volunteering for.

Volunteers are required:
  • To manage events for a minimum of three days. Events may run for up to seven or run on staggered days. A public calendar will be used to mark the dates and times your event is running.
  • To know the kind of event they're taking. For example, if you have little experience in ROM hacking, you shouldn't take a ROM hacking event.
  • To have good time management. Things must be timely - event posts and planning, for example. You must also be ready to post threads at specific times - these are times that you specify, or the default event starting time.

Anything in orange has a host, or a co-host already and doesn't need anyone else volunteering for those events. We will add more hosts if they are required.

You can also volunteer to host as much as you want, but you won't be guaranteed to get everything you asked for. As soon as you're accepted you'll be given an event organisers badge and access to the planning forum where you can plan your event. More specific details will be given to those who are accepted as event organisers.

Event organisers are also encouraged to make their event names fit the anniversary theme.

Core Events

I'm all up for hosting the Slogan Competition and/or Song Parody Competition, IRL Snapshot Contest or Anime Snapshot Competition, if you'd accept me! I think they'd be great little events to run, and proved to be especially fun to participate in last year. :3 And I'm very keen in hosting alongside others in the MC event. :33

Eh, I'd volunteer to help out with crossword/word search but I'm a bit compressed with the times I'd be able to do it. I can make time to help around 6pm CDT on weekdays.

Everyone knows that the internet is managed by millions of tiny gnomes and
goblins working in sweatshops in Africa and Eastern Europe. Do you really
want to encourage that by staying on here all day?

Why not stay up all night to get lucky instead?

I can help with the "Gaming Events - Team Fortress, Borderlands, etc" event. Would the game be up to me to decide, or the community? Because I don't want to accidentally host an event on a game that not very many people have.

It'd be up to the hosts, however it should be things that are well known (such as those included in the title) so you can get as much participants as you can.

I'll volunteer for hosting the movie nights, possibly with Alex depending on when Uni starts for him. It does fall under a week of school, but I'm sure I'd be able to make some time :D

I co-hosted movie nights last year so I'd love to do it again! Especially if Olli's able to do it too since he streams tonnes of stuff anyway. :D Been looking forward to this for ages \o/ We've already got a good idea of what movies to show and how to work the whole thing, so it'll be pretty quick to set up :D

Thanks. I would ask the community first what game they would prefer playing. I also need to make sure that it's a game that I have, otherwise I probably would have to host a different game.

I can host PC or PS3 games, and I can be flexible with the time. The only "popular" PC game I can't host is Team Fortress 2.

I would host any of the word games/searches/crosswords/etc. And I'd still like to do the other word game I suggested in the suggestions' thread, if that's still possible. I've got it all prepped if anyone wants to look over it.

Pokémon Pairing Word Game

To play you have to guess the pair of Pokémon whose names both match the letter clues. Each clue has EXACTLY TWO Pokémon that fit it (and no more). You have to guess BOTH correct answers to get that clue right. That’s the challenge.

This quiz uses the official English names for Pokémon. Just so we’re clear. Spelling obviously counts if you want to get the right answers, but if you misspell when you submit your guesses that won’t count against you (unless it’s not clear from your misspelling what your guess is).

You must use all the spaces in a clue. (For example, a clue of “S L O W _ _ _ _” could ONLY be answered with Slowking and Slowpoke because Slowbro is only 7 letters long and the clue is 8 letters long.)

All the matching letters will be shown. (You won’t see a clue like “_ L _ F A _ _ _” for Clefable/Clefairy. Their clue would read “C L E F A _ _ _”.)

Pokémon with non-alphabetic characters (Farfetch'd, Ho-Oh , Mr. Mime, Mime Jr., Nidoran♀, Nidoran♂, Porygon2, and Porygon-Z) will not show up anywhere in this quiz so don’t worry about guessing those.
