    How about a few COD playdates in the community or anything else?

I mean, he can't exactly be awake all the time, lol.

    Megan would be good for those in UTC/GMT -8 to 10 timezone areas whilst Harley would be good for his side UTC/GMT +12 to 8.

    If any one of you objects or have something to add on, then I'm all ears~

    I'm looking forward to this, since this is my first GT.

    Also, speaking of video games maybe some sort of League of Legends event, or tournament? If people are into League of Legends, that is. I can iron out the idea.

    If you're doing a retro gaming event, I can help with that too!


    Going for the iSketch I'd love to co-host it with Shawn along with AWsquared , also just saying, a lot of people would love for it to be an event, and I'm pretty sure that it'll get tons of activity too~

    I'd love to see a Yugioh tournament (either Duelling Network or YGOPro) being held for the GT, if that appeals to people? I was thinking either Match or Tag games, or possibly both depending on demand. I'd be more than happy to host it if people are interested enough to take part, but the big YGO fan base on here bodes well I think :)

    (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)

    What an amazingly amazing idea. I'd do it at least.

    That was in response to the post above me. In case that wasn't you know, incredibly obvious.

      Here's an alternate Minecraft suggestion: have a Creative map for people to build Pokémon-related things in (pixel art, models, buildings, whatever). It'd be open throughout the GT weekend, and the map be made downloadable afterwards.

      I couldn't host it myself, but I think it's a nice alternative to a UHC event (it's the exact opposite of it, in fact).

      I looked through and notice that an icon/banner contest hasn't been suggested yet... I remember during the 2011 Holiday Hop we had one of those contests where users took stock images and made a banner or an icon based on the theme of winter. Could we have that again? :3

      Well...Why not both?

      This is something different, too.

      I didn't technically say I'd help host an iSkecth event, was just agreeing with Kura's suggestion of an oekaki/whiteboard event and said I might help host it if it becomes an actual event since Kura will be gone for most of the GT weekend. Though ISketch/o is pretty similar to an oekaki/whiteboard. I'm already co-hosting the Radio Nights with Dave (Antemortem) so I may or may not be able to help co-host the iSketch event or whiteboard/oekaki thing. Depends on my time.

      Unfortunately I wont be here to attend this get-together, as I will be on a mini vacation-adventure that weekend but hopefully others can have fun with it!~

      I gave the whiteboard/oekaki a spin for my money, and it's not bad, it's just that you need Java first of all and the Google translate plugin thing, since the whiteboard thing is in Japanese... It only translates the text in the page into English and the mechanic itself is wholesomely in Japanese... The interface is a bit like MS Paint, but like an really old windows 95 and below version. So I think people would want to use iSketch over the whiteboard/oekaki, since IS, requires only Adobe Shockwave installed in your computer, and most people shouldn't have a problem with that than more or so with the whiteboard/oekaki (has Java*). (Hope everything I said makes sense , typing this half awake...)


      Anyway, you can just pop in whenever you like then, AWsquared. Ante will be needing you more, since the radio will be pretty busy and popular, he'd need it.

      I'll be with my man, Miss Doronjo (SHAWN) with the iSketch AFTER he makes up his mind that it... xD

        Anyway, pretty damn slow to respond to this, but thanks for volunteering to be co-hosts for Skype Chris, Megan, and Twi. My parents might be a butts about me being online all day so your assistance is appreciated. =D

          I leave town on the 6th [July] for the beach so I'd like to at least try to participate in something, maybe the raffle, before I leave town. I love PC, but I'm not sure I'll be spending beach time participating.

            There are two events I'd be more than happy to host.

            1: A livestream session where I will design 5 sound effects based on the five most popular requests from the people of Pokecommunity. If I cannot effectively synthesize a particular sound, I will select the next sound with the highest number of votes.

            Each sound will be produced in up to three different DAWs (Digital Audio Workstation) and I may also answer any questions about sound design to the best of my ability.

            The livestream will be hosted during the 7th of July, starting from 5 PM GMT (unless something comes up where I am unable to host the stream). I will provide a backup streaming time if necessary.

            2: Starting on July 6th, I will post an essay about things such as:

            The meaning of life
            How I overcame depression and self-pity
            An introduction to a new way of thinking
            The 11 Forgotten Laws
            Some of the greatest teachers on the subject of Self-Development and Living
            My 15 favorite quotes of all time
            My advice to those who are struggling emotionally

            These subjects will each have their own post, possibly more than one, depending on their length. Please read this essay with an open mind, as some of it may be unusual to the average person, maybe even absurd. But to anyone who seriously wants to achieve anything past mediocrity, I suggest you take your time and study some of the information I've gathered over the last three years. You might just learn something valuable.

              I would like to see a ROM hacking event where hackers could go and ask questions if they need help with something in their hack. Hackers could also go here if there are simply wanting to chat about their hack and get some good ideas about what to implement into their hack.

              There's actually already a thread that's available 24/7 for everyone to use (which can be found here), so I think an event based on asking for help would be a little redundant. 8)

              1st is fine, but 2nd, how will this include the readers? I mean it's great and all, but shouldn't a community event include everyone?

                There was an event, I think, 2 years ago?, that I quite liked - it was a scripting event, where entrants posted a script and a video demonstrating it. Now, what I'd like to see happen, is an event like that. While I wouldn't be able to host it, if it was for RMXP or ROM hacking, I think it'd be cool to have an event where entrants code something and post it, and could be judged based on a number of different things.

                However, on a similar note, one event that would be quite awesome, and one that I would be able to host, would be a Java coding competition, where entrants are required to code something related to one or more themes, and post the .jar code, a link to the source, and a video (optional, but screenshots required). Personally, I could see it as a way to broaden the scope of a lot of people in terms of game dev, as there are tons of games made in RMXP, but not nearly as many coded in another language, such as C or Java.

                Oh, looks like Skypes all taken care of. Well I'm here if I'm needed.

                Suggestion: Pokecommunity One Hit Wonder.
                The members will take event in writing a song of any genre, best song wins. Though the song has to happy rhythm (or not..) that will keep us tappn' our feet.

                  Since I have Team Fortress 2 now, I'd be more than happy to help co-host. But I am not certain since I may get Skype. But I am more than happy to be a back-up cohost if all possible. :)

                  I'm not too keen on that because like Skype requires a money subscription to video chat lol

                  If you can find a way to get say, 8-15 people on board, then by all means do it!

                  I like the idea, but a couple things about the Java one.

                  First, Java/Ruby isn't easy to pick up in a hurry (it took me about a year to even get the concept of C, personally) like scripting and I don't think many others without any experience can either.

                  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.
