I'm sure there a few other Pokémon that are related to fall too like Sawsbuck (fall version) and Carnivine.

Annnd we need to decide on the date soon. Does Saturday, October 27th (for EST?) sound good?

Another idea: we could have an exclusive emblem for this Community Day that's Halloween themed (i.e. Gengar on it instead of Emboar).

Because a lot of people would be busy on Halloween. 8( The weekend before Halloween should be good enough.

Well, that was just an example. There's probably something that fits it more.

Actually ya, people barely play OU here let's choose a NU mon instead!!

tbh it's a matter of finding images really, but if a NU Pokemon then I vote Misdreavus or Haunter.

27th October sounds like a pretty good date. Close enough to Halloween anyway. :)

On the subject of emblem, I'll definitely vote for Banette. It's a scary Pokémon AND a NU one...not a very good one, but still! ^^

Okay so, the first post has been stylized to a more appropriate Halloween theme. The tournament themes have been updated, along with a schedule that accompanies them. All tournaments will be "Best of Three" this time around just so you all know (instead of flip-flopping like last time). Planning has now ended, and now we just wait until CommDay is here! Also, a Halloween-themed emblem will be added soon.

Reminds me of the hikers

The trick or treat thing was just me being stupid to get 25char, but uh I guess you could do something where like users can be 'houses' and you get 'candy' if you win, not really sure lol

Oh, I thought I saw something similar on Smogon. I'm probably thinking of that Darkrai moveset named "Trick or Treat" lol.

I may not be able to make it for the 27th, haha, since it's technically gonna be a good chance at actually going to a Halloween party without having to worry about work in the morning. But if there are gonna be any people hanging around on the 28th or 26th I'll be happy to chill with them. :D

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?

Sorry, but moving it to Sunday would make it inconvenient for everyone planning to stay until midnight or so (weekday comes after). ;( Community Day will (probably) always be on Saturday in the future, unless it's winter or summer break. But yeah, activity usually lasts for another day after CD.

There isn't much of a demand for it (I've only been asked once before this). However, I might set up a poll for whether or not we should introduce Wi-Fi tournaments on the next Community Day once this CD is over.

I'm going to end Community Day 7 early. We simply don't have enough people online to continue this. Hopefully the next CD will be more successful than this one. Also, I think we should hold off on starting another CD for a month or two (Thanksgiving or Christmas theme perhaps).

I'm just bumping this to let everyone that CommDay 8 planning has started. There is a poll for deciding the date, so please vote if you're interested!

I'm up for two commdays really but woohoo did raise an interesting point. What if there weren't enough people for either? Personally, I have no problems in attending since I have no obligations on both days but the possibility of not enough people showing up still stands (I think this is also the problem with past commnights, hopefully it wouldn't happen). Hopefully we can push this through!

don't see the downside to two commdays aside from more work for wolf and it being his idea suggests to me that he is up for that.

I thought of the same thing as well, actually even asking people "who would say no to two comm days?!" I think woohoo voted no because he thought, basing from the past comm days, that comm day = promotion day due to auths being given out after the last comm days. Not quite sure though so don't quote me on that one. I just want to push this through. :3

That's on Thanksgiving; most people are busy that day, and I certainly will be. That doesn't give us much time to prepare anyway.

True, but Nica and I figured that the previous Community Day was unsuccessful because of the lack of advertisement and notice. And if the NYE CommDay doesn't work out, it's no big deal. It really depends on you guys if you all are interested enough in participating.

Indeed I am, but I might need extra help for hosting it. I can't guarantee that I won't be busy on either days.

Well, some may get sick of CommDay if there's too many of them haha. Speaking of promotions, I could hold off on them until the NYE CommDay for the purpose of giving it an activity boost.

Annnd I take that back, I'm afraid I'm not sure whether or not I'll be busy on New Year's Eve. I don't want to back out on this much later on when we have already planned everything. As a result, I'm going to stick with only one CommDay on Dec 22nd. Besides, many others will be busy on NYE anyway, but this doesn't mean that those who will be here can't celebrate New Years Day. And hey, if there are enough people online, there can still be tournaments. Anyway, moving promotions to the NYE CommDay would be silly, since they're more appropriate for the Christmas-themed CommDay (presents!).

Also, let's hope that Dec 21 won't be the end of the world, haha!
