Oh, so something along the lines of a lucky dip? Ooh, that would be cool! But how would you enter? Just sign an application from or template? The problem though is keeping things fair? How would we fairly find a person to hand supportership to? Random generator? Who will be responsible for generating the names? Just a few questions, if this were to be considered! But I like the idea nontheless it sounds quite cool!

And, I agree, I think for this get together, we need some unique events, some that we haven't seen before, or haven't seen a lot of.
Well. First, we could get some volunteering supporters or other people who'd like to take part of the event, to pay for the giftcards/whatever.

Then we could get a list of all the userids of PC and jack them into a random picker generator thingymabob. We simply spin the numbers according to the amount of volunteers who will pay for the supportership gift. If the generator comes out with a supporter one, then respin. It shouldn't take too long, there are more nonsupporters than supporters. It should be done in less than an hour.

Then, some staff with access to the admin cpanel could search for those userids, and give those lucky bozos supportership!

Simple(ish) right?



still hoping for the give zephyr cookies event

Uh... I don't think that method would really work out well. There are literally over 30,0000 members here and randomly selecting one user from all of them? Half the members don't even come back anyway. As for those who want to participate, I think there will be more who want to get supporterships than those willing to donate. A lucky dip of a -theme- would probably be better, or a graphic or something. Like a Secret Santa, so everyone has an equal role.

Well then, put a limit. Say people could register for a chance of getting supporter status. There could be X amount of slots (e.g. 100 slots) but only 50 will get supportership. It's fair. -shrugs- still not as awesome as give zephyr cookies event Also, I'd love to help out in volunteering for that event obviously, coz it's my idea. >.>

- I know this passed but idk, an event based on Olympic style competition and must involve Pokemon and PC (I'll try making creative ways to do some) and "countries" can be either types or regions, or countries/regions in real life. Again this is only one event. Team with most gold medals win. But its friendly competition of coarse. I can't host, its out of my league. Problem I can see is what mini games can we do. but yeaa that's what i can make up right now.
If we could get this to work somehow, then that would be amazing.

Quote originally posted by Derozio:
And AMV contest. That'd be epic. If I remember correctly, the PPC held before the previous one had it but its successor didn't. I want it to return.
This sounds really cool. Of course I wouldn't be making any of them, but still.

Hey how about a sprite making contest or some kind of other challange or spin off making contest???
Didn't we already have a spinoff making contest earlier this year? :/

Quote originally posted by zephyr6257:
a how much cookies can you give zephyr contest! OMG THAT WOULD BE SO AWESOME
OH OH OH OH! Why don't we have a Pair-a-Random-Person-For-a-Day Event?
Or a Gift-Supportership-To-A-Random-Member Event?
Something unique would be really fun. Not just the staples.
These two sound fun. Though I'm not sure how the pair a person one would work, could you explain please?

We have Community awards towards the end of every year.

I would like to see a Trivia that incorporates many parts of the Pokemon franchise such as the Gaming, Anime, Manga, and TCG and apply it all into one game. This too me would encourage team work since I doubt all people are knowledgeable in all those.

I... didn't realist staff were so distant that we actually needed this, haha. But meh - if it's what members want then I think staff should do it.

It will be interesting to see what a ROM hacker can do in a time that the get-together is on

I like this, 'cause a handful of staff never really talk to normal members, and this could be a way to pull them closer. ;)

What if we start a site YouTube channel. It can be where a member or two showcase fanfic, art, and games. It could really boost popularity here and with enough subs we could sign up for google ads and give the money to the site.
It seems apropriate that after 19 years this is made.

Finally another get together! YEYUH. I think we should definitely have:
- Isketch game
- Minecraft Event
- WiFi Battle

And I have a bunch of other ideas that I will talk about later if I can think. And I can help host anything if needed (I can host the minecraft server for the event); I will be on all the time when we have this Get-Together! :DDD

good idea but maybe we could have it so every week people nominate someones sprites, someones rom hack etc and then the moderator in charge of the youtube channel make a youtube video on the peoples work that gets the most vote (for example if there were 3 categories fanfic,art and rom hack then there would be 3 people who get a youtube video about their work.)

But this thread isn't to post ideas to improve the community, there about ideas of events for the get-together. This site also is ten years old, not nineteen.

Shiny Pokemon raffle. Have members donate their legit shinies in a raffle and whoever enters in the event and has their name selected wins a shiny in a trade!

I would like to see the Design a Pokemon event come back. It's a lot of fun, and was fairly popular last time if I remember correctly.

I can't think of anything specific, but something to tie into the state of the franchise at the time PC opened (Generation II being the current generation, Ruby and Sapphire being in development, etc.) would be nice to have.

The obligatory Pokémon battling tournament would be neat. We could either stick to the usual point system (use the thread for finding battles, a point given for winning, a point taken for losing, person with the most points wins, etc.), or try something new. The point system is generally the best to use because of the Get-Together's time restrictions. Average elimination tournaments (or really anything with a bracket) are difficult to complete in time. I might post again if I come up with anything...

Also, some gaming events for stuff like Team Fortress 2. Perhaps some sort of launch co-op event for Borderlands 2 if there are enough people that want one and will be getting the game before GT.

So here's my input. I have an idea that is a little more flushed out than simply saying, "Let's do an Egg Swap." My idea is essentially an Egg swap with a little more.

Each participant would breed one egg and post their friend code (Gen V) on the thread. they would have one or two days to swap the egg as much as possible/as much as they want. Then, they hatch the egg, and raise the Pokemon in question as much as possible. On the final day or two, everyone would post their final result, compare, and discuss.

I would like to see this happen, and think it would be a fun alternative to a standard egg swap. I would gladly run it if that's what it takes.

I don't come here very often so chances are some of the things I'm going to post already exist, hahaha.

- Profile contests, maybe? Since you can customise your profile here.
- Icon Contest - make an icon related to a team, the community votes on the best or there are set judges who judge the icons and the best one wins
- Some sort of writing contest?
- Does PC have a Pokemon Online server? If so, MAFIA NIGHT omg
- Secret Santa / Art Swap

I think that when we've done this before, we had two tiers for it - supporters and non-supporters. The reason for this is that supporters have far more customisation options than non-supporters so judging them against each other would be impossible and unfair. I'm up for it, though, if we do it with the two separate tiers.

I believe a small group of battlers on here regular the PO server but I don't think Mafia is a regular, or even known, thing on there. You'd have to ask someone who goes there often though.

Can you explain this one?

I completely agree with a logo-making contest! However, I'd suggest that digital and hand-made entries have different competitions for obvious reasons. I'd give that contest a go!

Quote originally posted by Razor Leaf:

Artists pick other artists, albeit randomly and secretly, and make an icon for them. Each artist can hint what they want the icon to be, but I don't think they can straight-out reveal it. (Artists, thereof, can be replaced as members/users/people.)

Not too sure, though.

I guess all the ones I've wanted have been said:PC SKYPE CALLS, Photography, TF2 Gaming night, Trivia, Movie Nights, Drawing Contests and of course the one and only iSketch.
Funny how I've been a host for every iSketch event since the 2010-11 New Year's Extravaganza but I think I'm gonna let this time pass and enjoy myself by actually doing events this year despite that I'm barely active enough atm

There was a channel for it but p much nobody has used it recently, at least. Even still, we swapped to PS now and the userbase is quite small (4-5) so idk.
