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.
Ah, I see. I'm not entirely sure if Pokemon Showdown or w/e it's called can host Mafia games. :s

Quote originally posted by Razor Leaf:

Can you explain this one?
Pretty much what Zeffy said. A bunch of people sign up in a thread, just giving a vague idea of what they want their icon/banner to look like. After however many days of signing up, sign-ups are closed and the host uses an RNG to assign each person another person for which they need to make an icon for, as per their description. So, for example, Julie might post saying she wants a green icon. Bob has also signed up, and gets a PM from the host saying that he has to make Julie's icon, so he makes a green icon and PMs it to the host. Everyone does this (nobody can tell anyone else whose icon they're making) and then at the end of however many days, the host posts all the icons and who they were made for, but they don't say who made the icons (optional rule). It's basically Kris Kringle/Secret Santa, but online and using icons or banners.

That said, if an Icon Contest is being held, it would probably be best for this to be held later on, ie during Christmas. n_n

These two sound fun. Though I'm not sure how the pair a person one would work, could you explain please?[/COLOR][/QUOTE]

WELL. To tell you the truth, I haven't fully thought of the ideaaa of pairing a random person lol (it was just a random idea :3) BUT it's around the lines of pairing a person for a day and then of course, doing pairly things.

Putting him/her on your signature/chatting with him/her the whole day/spamming the person's VM wall/etc.

It'll be fun. Getting to know a specific person in a day. [/SIZE][/FONT]

I wouldn't mind a Borderlands 2, Halo, or even a fighter game event seeing as MvC Orgins will be released soon.

I don't think it can (yet? it's still in beta after all). I can still get the Pokémon Online server up again if there's enough people that want to play mafia. I've always wanted to try it.

Quote originally posted by Iqid Loopz:
- 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.
Soooo it took me a while to think of mini games for this event. So here what i thought of

There will be 5 teams, as in 5 regions (5 Olympic rings, if you know what I mean) if dont know the 5 Pokemon Regions then wooow ' Each team will either have 15-20 athletes (I haven't decided on numbers yet)

Each event will have "category mini game" (Solo, double, triple, team)
(Solo) The winning individual with the fastest time/points wins.
(Doubles, Triples, Teams) The team with the best combine total time/and or points wins.


Spoiler:
Event #1 -The Decathlon

Goal - On a organized course(which I may do soon) Run, bike and swim/surf through out a chosen region and course as fast as you can.
Rules - Each athlete is given 5 repels and 1 max repel. A bump into a object is a 5 second add to your total time, and a Pokemon encounter is a 10 second adding.
(Solo & 5 athlete team competition)

Event # 2 - Defeating Whitney and Milktank

Goal - Defeat Whitney and her team as fast as possible
Rules - No OP teams (I'll have to add more rules)
(Solo & 3 athlete team competition)

Selected Pokemon and Points System
Spoiler:

Chikorita/Charmander/Mudkip - 4 points
Spiritomb/Dratini/Eevee/Aerodactyl/Snorlax- 5 points

Rules - Your able to use Ditto to breed and Fire type Pokemon to hatch
(Solo & 5 athlete team competition)

Event # 4 - Pokemon Battle!

Goal -
Become victorious in the tournament
Rules - No cheating
(Solo, Double and if possible triples)

NOTE: Even though its going to be a event outside of the Olympics but in the Get Together. This event has a Gold Medal on the line! <--- that's the difference.

Event #5 - 17 Types

Goal - Catch 1 pure type Pokemon of each 17 types of Pokemon as quick as possible. Quickest time wins.
Rules - No hacking to get them, and you can only use Pokeballs and you're unable to attack the Pokemon your going to catch.
(Solo & 3 athlete team competition)

Event #6 - World Champ!

Goal - Defeat Pokemon Champion at the highest difficulty (if possible) as quick as possible. Quickest time wins.
Rules - No cheating, duuuhhh. Each time you fail to defeat the Champion, 3 minutes will be added to your total time.

(Solo, doubles and 6 athlete team)

Event #16 - The Medal Total Count

Goal - The Region with the most Gold Medals win.
Rules this implies with all events - You MUST be honest on the result you get in your events.



Yeaaa thats all I can make up right now. And most likely need some planning out and sign upa a weeks or days before the actual get-together starts. It can be fun. Hectic for organizers but a new experience, right? And plus competitors have a chance on winning a gold medal! Bragging rights for your Poke Region. And oh yea and set a World and Olympic Record!

So what you guys think?

I agree with the PC History Trivia, cos it's fun.

Maybe even sharing some of our best PC moments via screenshot.
THIS.
Other than a Minecraft event, this would be AWESOME — reminiscing is my reason to live! <3

Well, for spriters like me, I would really want a big spriting with spriting categories such as splicing, recoloring, retyping, pixel overs, blah...blah...blah... event hosted by Logiedan & Abnegation. Well, if you really want to know the details, please PM me. I don't have much time to post anymore.

Then, maybe a trade-giveaway for Black & White owners. Like you post your FC & Version. Then, post your wish Pokemon & you get it for 'free'. By 'free' I mean trade in your most useless Pokemon or either any random caught Pokemon.

★ So, here are my wants ★
~Spriting competition (Details coming tomorrow)
~Trade Giveaway


I hope you guys will consider my suggestions.

Hey I just joined January 2012 and I have no idea what most of these events are. ^.^''
But I read Olli's. Suggestion on writing pokemon creepypasta, and it would be awesome. But I wouldn't probably write myself, since I'm bad at writing stories. Oh and what's this about a movie night? :3 Could anyone care to explain to me please?

Basically someone will stream a movie (most likely Pokémon related) using something called Livestream and everyone will be able to gather in the live stream's channel and talk in the chat box whilst watching the movie together :D

The movies don't have to be Pokemon-related, afaik.

A scavenger hunt would be really cool! I also think we should have a Pokemon Gaming night/day :3

And how about a Rom Hacking/Game Dev event?

And a photography event would be nice - It's getting nicer here, now if I don't have to fiddle with my camera I may enter that.
Yeah! Like that Idea! Like ludum dare only you have to create a pokemon hack within 48 hours. It could be called PKMN Dare .

Okay, I know I'm new here, but I haves some ideas that I think should be considered. Also, I'm not sure if some of these ideas have been posted.
1. I agree with the idea of a ROM hacking competition, it would be fun.
2. A pokemon wi-fi battle tournament, using the Battle Colosseum room in PokeCentres.
3. A Pokemon contest, such as those in R/S/E, and D/P/Plt.

I think a game I call "The Great Egg Drop" would be really fun to play. So basically the way it goes is a PC member starts the game by posting an egg at the top of a thread(not disclosing what is inside), then the game begins. The first poster tries to guess what the egg contents are, if you guess right you win, if you guess wrong, you "drop" the egg and are out of the game. Then the next person tries to guess and either wins or "drops" the egg. The PC member who starts the game may or may not choose to post hints to what is inside the egg. The first person to guess correctly "catches" the egg and wins the game.

It is. However, it also caters discussion that pertains to other stuff too. And besides this get-together isn't a Pokemon anniversary celebration anyway, it's for the 10 years that The PokeCommunity has been up.

BY THE WAY, is there going to be another egg-hunt? If there isn't, then there should be! *cough*nica*cough*plan*cough*it*cough*

EDIT: I mean't scavenger hunt. The Easter event made me confused!

Nope, I have no plans to launch another egg hunt, not til Easter at least. A scavenger hunt isn't out of the question though, and even so I won't be hosting/planning it because I'm going to be involved in other things that'll take up the majority of my timeee.

I'd like to see the pokemon special abridged event from the 8th together. It seemed quite popular and it was really fun to host too.

So you'd be guessing what pokemon would be in the egg or something? Either way I'd want to play it, sounds like a fun recurring game!

Yeah. You try to guess what pokemon is in the egg. It could be any hatchable pokemon from Bulbasaur and onward!

Nica, when you said the events will be discusses in the IRC channel, do you have a specific time planned out yet?

Oh and I do support the suggested PC history events. (:

Not really, just whenever Jake's on the most later I guess. Not sure if everyone is going to be receptive of GT discussion anyway, lool.

Sounds like a good idea, and if we're lucky maybe me or someone else can provide eggs that we can give as rewards :3 (I like rewards)
