Pokémon Clubs 'Post-A-Thon' Challenge

Wait, what is this? An event in PoC?! No way! Well, yes way actually! Some of the members who've been around for a while might remember the "annual" Post-a-thon challenge, which is now seeing the light of day for the fourth time here in Pokemon Clubs. Basically what this is, is a small event which serves to help boost the activity in the individual clubs a bit, as well as might help give people a push on their way if they've been contemplating getting a bit more active.

So, how does it work?
Note! If you don't want to read all the text, seeing as this got kinda long-winded since I have a habit of tl;dr'ing everything I touch (even though this isn't at all that bad!), just read around the bolded parts, or check out the list of important points at the end of this part :)

It's quite simple actually! You just fill out the sign-up form below in a post in this thread and start posting! Well, maybe not that simple. Of course there's a goal and rules, otherwise it wouldn't be a challenge :p

Basically, from now on until the 10th of February, you have to make at least 45 posts within this section. However, only 3 posts can be recorded each day, and none of the 3 can be posted within the same club, so that way we get the most variety and it isn't just one club that gets all of the activity (cookie points if it isn't just the same three clubs you post in each day and if you also try to help out the less active clubs ;) ). Note that you can make use of all the days until the deadline, the days in which you count your posts don't have to be consecutive. The three posts per day do however all have to be posted within the same day, but if you post a bit past midnight that's alright, but try to make them before 3 am at least :p If you only make 2 posts one day however, you'll have to remove all posts you recorded that day. However, if you missed one or two posts during this whole thing, no worries.

Also, if you want the deadline extended a bit because you don't think you can make it in time, or because you joined a bit late, etc., just PM me, and we'll work something out. This is supposed to be a light-hearted event, you're not supposed to be stressed out about making the deadline or not :)

As a final note to the rules, "post farming" for the sake of just getting posts to record for the challenge will not be tolerated. Of course you're free to make the posts specifically for the challenge, nothing's stopping you there, but they obviously have to be relevant and contributing to the club, and at least have to have some degree of effort put into them. That means posting something like "lol i like dark types", even if it's in a Dark type club, will not be counted towards your posts in the event, and if you're caught doing it multiple times, it'll result in disqualification. Casual chit-chat about the topic of the club and sign-up posts are obviously allowed though, so no need to be paranoid about your post not following the rules. If you are in doubt about it though, don't hesitate to PM me about it, though if you go through the trouble to do that I probably won't even need to check out the post :p Basically, just post like you normally do, and you'll be alright.

And here's a list over the most important points.
  • A flexible deadline of February 10th
  • 45 posts in total
  • Only 3 posts can be recorded a day, no more, no less.
  • All three recorded posts from the same day have to be in seperate clubs
  • Post farming with unrelated posts and/or posts that don't contribute to the club will not be tolerated
  • Squirrel smells like nuts

K, but what's in it for me?
Well, obviously there'll be two obligatory emblems, one for everyone who finishes, and one for everyone who participates but don't finish. But over time I've heard several birds tweet about how lame and non-hip emblems have become, so let's present a new and totally hip prize!

Everyone who finishes will be put on a list from which we'll randomly pick one person (or two, depending on the amount of people who finishes) who'll win their own custom usertitle! If you're wondering what a custom usertitle is, it's basically just a usertitle in which you can use html to make it all colorful and awesome. If you want examples, just take a look at some of the staff members. Once you've chosen your custom usertitle however, you can't get another one (unless you win another event with one as its prize of course :p), and once you've changed your usertitle, you can't get it back. Unless it's on accident of course.

Er, questions. Does adding an update to a post count? For example, I began a breeding project Friday, and today I'm updating the post with the results.

Also, what's to be done if I happen to be the only one posting in a club on a daily basis, since consecutive posts are against the rules? Join another club?

I reckon an update would be alright as long as you mention it in the post in this thread :) And yeah, can't really help it if you're the only one posting in the club :( The entire event is more or less to promote activity across a bunch of clubs, so that's honestly what I'd hope wouldn't happen, but in that case you should probably join another club, yeah :/

Alright, that marks the end of this event. Congratulations to Eсно, Sheep and Dragon_Trainer_ for finishing the event, and congratulations to Eсно for winning the custom usertitle :) And of course, thanks to all who participated. I'll be handing out emblems soon.

Hope to see you all again next year!
