A challenge, while I'm away

Posted November 14th, 2011 at 7:17 AM by Mr Cat Dog

I've got a load of regulatory exams coming up over the next week-and-a-bit, so have decided to take a DLoA (demoted leave of absence) from PC until I'm done with them. I'll still be on PC during this time, but it'll be much less frequently, and without any modding powers, obvs.

That being said, while I'm away, I have a challenge for anyone who's willing to accept it. It's based off Patchisou Yutohru's PokéCommunity Challenge, but it's much less detailed/stringent. For those of you who've apparently been feeling very pessimistic about this place for whatever reason, or those of you who want to be challenged, or those of you who just want a free emblem (yes, I've made stole an emblem as a prize), or just those who wish to participate because you think it'll help PC, or those of you who want to participate for the fun of it, here's what you need to do:
  1. Welcome at least one new person to PC every day.
  2. Create at least one new thread every day, but about something meaningful, with plenty of scope for discussion.
  3. Every day, go to an area of the forum you haven't been in and see whether you'd like to stay there. Post, if you can...
  4. Every day, start a conversation with someone you've always been shy about getting to know. You might not get a response, but you'd be surprised at how many new friends you'll make through this method.
  5. Try and make your favourite forum the best place it can be: report more, post new threads, contribute to thriving discussions, whatever works for that place.
  6. Comment on more blog entries if you have something to say. Alternatively, if you have a blog, make more blog entries for the PC populace to read about.
  7. Suggest an improvement for PC, or give constructive feedback about this place in CQ+F.
  8. Go in the PokeCommunity Chat. If it's quiet, try and stir up some conversation. If it's busy, try and jump right in with the chatting and such.
  9. Make sure that when you do post, it's something that you can be proud of, as opposed to a basic laundry list of answers to questions. If you have any anecdotes that might fit in, let us know; if you have any bits of trivia, please share them. Just try to make each post as meaningful as it can be.
  10. Have fun here, and accentuate the positive in all that you do at PC. The main reason we all come here is for fun and relaxation... right?
So, there's the 10-part challenge. I'll be a mod again on November 24th, so if you want to take part... you've got until then. Good luck, everyone!

    Good luck with your exams. I disregard the challenge part completely.

    Too bad we can't make this part of an announcement.. I think it'd encourage more friendliness!

    Yeah, an announcement would be nice since it doesn't seem like many people visit the blogs.
