For all you hosts, I'm around to make lovely thread CSS/Graphics again if wanted. :]

Last years: 1, 2, 3

These all used the same recycled CSS unfortunately as I was a little pushed for time last year! This year however I'm promising you all unique designs, if you do want any that is.

(If we're using a universal-ish design across the board though, like we were meant to last time ^^', ignore everything I just said!)

As well, I'm available as backup host if necessary. (Super flexible in regards to time, as ever)

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 up 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(emblem)! Bragging rights for your Poke Region. And oh yea and set a World and Olympic Record!

So what you guys think?

Though I highly doubt this can even happen.

Second of all, I think RMXP and programs like that costs money, and I sure don't have any expenses to spare XD

So even though I would be willing to try it at least, I'm not too sure the less RH-oriented guys would be as willing.
Hmmm,
1. True. That is true... Then again, a similar thing can be said about graphics XD... Or maybe that's just me.... However, there are good tutorials out there that allow you to get a basic grasp of them, enough to create something simplistic yet awesome. Plus, you've got websites such as stackoverflow.com and stuff that'd allow beginners (and others) to find out why something isn't working.
2. RMXP has a 30 day trial, which'd allow judges that don't have it to use it over the get-together. As for pure ruby and java, you could use notepad if need be to build it, and running it is simplistic enough. IDE's are different, but Eclipse(for Java) is free, awesome, points out errors, and runs the code as well.

Hey, that's not so bad of an idea! Thing is, if I recall correctly from past Skype sessions, not many people were keen on voice chatting either. Still, that doesn't mean we can't try. 8D

The thing with voice chatting is that you'd need at least a few people to voluntarily talk, but in this case where there is going to be a mass group, it'd take at least max 6-8 people to muster up the courage to voice chat and keep it going.


But we'll come up with something once the planning gets going. :>

I mean to say that, Twi, that not many people might be comfortable with voice chatting. =P

But of course, all we have to wait for is PC's own Harlequin to take the stage, er, mic!

Lololol. That's why I said that it'd take at least max 6-8 people to muster up the courage to talk. Because if those people would talk, then everyone else would get into it and start talking as well, of course as hosts we'll have to partake in the voice chatting as well, to promote it among the group, aka that's where Harley comes in and Grace us with his Blunt and to the point wits and charm~

I'd like to see a Design-a-Pokémon contest (or create a Pokémon, whatever doo-hickey you please to call it) again this year. The past few design a Pokémon contests were fairly successful and fun. I'd be up for hosting that again too if no one wants to since I have a lot of ideas for it after last year's. Still, just a suggestion :p

I don't see why people wouldn't be comfortable talking if they have a mic .-.

So when does the planning phase start?

Agreeing with the above regarding skype and people who are shy to talk in voice. Surely you need about 4-6 people to start a convo. But optionally, 1-2 of them have to be the hosts. xD

But then like, voice chatting is optional on skype. there's always IM for those who want to join the event but don't have a mic.

Is it just me, or does it look like not a whole lot of people are intrested in this years GT?

Usually we'd have 2-3 times the events by now and a lot more pages in this topic.

A good chunk of events have been suggested but the OP hasn't been updated yet.

Although I must agree, usually we're supposed to have 100 events suggested by now and we're supposed to be in the planning stages. NOT THAT I'M RUSHING OR ANYTHING. Like... it's understandable.

Has anyone suggested singing contest yet? I think I might be up for it as a participant. :D

Yeah last year there was tons of pages by now full of events suggestions by now. Though last year was because it's was PCX so we had many people come back for the 10th anniversary. I'm hoping we get more suggestions as the GT gets closer.

Singing content sounds fun.

Based on what time of the year it is right now, most people are busy with school/college/uni ---exams and finals...and some are on vacation. But as Megan said, it's understandable, so we should be getting more people on board once they've finished with schooling and studying and the what not. Although even though I don't mind waiting around, I would like to get the planning started, 2 and a half weeks are going to go by fast and we need all the time we can get to plan and organize our events, but like I said, I don't mind the waiting around.

I at least agree on getting planning started as soon as possible, especially for events that have already been settled with its hosts, that way the events aren't rushed.

I'd really like to see some Pokemon X and Y related events. I think PC could use X and Y to promote this year's get together as a pervasive theme.

For example, the design a Pokemon event could challenge participants to design a fairy type Pokemon, a ride-able Pokemon, or some other pertinent theme. Likewise, in the creation of a story-line event, there could be a prompt to write the story-line for the X and Y game or something more nuanced to X and Y. Even if the event has nothing to do with Pokemon, we can still tie in events like the Skype Event by promoting the connectivity of X and Y as explained at the E3 Round Table.

Activity on the site has spiked recently because of the X and Y discussions, why not try to use that as the connective thread? Just a thought.

This is actually one of the ideas that I'm planning to implement if ever I get to be the host of the design a Pokémon contest (and if they approve of the design a Pokémon contest).

(There may also be a potential ban on the T1 decks at the moment like ED/Prophecy which completely unbalance the game for other decks, but we'll base that on opinion)
Sorry but was there ever a yes or no to this? (And the majority of the other ideas in this thread?) We'd like to know whether or not we should start planning it since it's getting pretty close to the date. We've already started a tad but we'd hate for it to all be in vain, as I'm sure other people have been thinking too :p

Hopefully (most likely) I'll be getting confirmation from TwilightBlade to post all the approved events. Trust me, we're literally on the brink of the beginning stages of actual planning, so don't worry!
