I'm game for some of that Gogreen. For highest caravan raid or loot would have to be a screenshot, or some other way aside from the target verifying they did indeed lose X amount (then they'd know who it was ha-ha) ..for networth gain/loss per week I could see saving the ranks for various games myself each few days. Could do personal and guild even.

Good ideas Gogreen ;> pm me your kdm # and game for a few free turns this week for the suggestions.

Has anybody ever considered trying to beat each other at "Sven BomWollen" for turns?

heres one
who has the most active Icons they have created
it would be cool to reward those creative people who help all use useless dolts
maybe have it so the character must post in the event thread with an active Icon

well, not exactly events, but: splitting the free turns page up into sections with the buttons being direct linkthru's to the voting page would be a gd idea, and reduce the reward to say.. 1 or 2 points each..

more voting links might be a gd idea, if they were generally put together so incredibly lazy ppl are closer to the vote page when they click the vote button. (but the voting links either rewardless or a reward on a 1week timer, maybe) even 1ce per age might be an interesting one :)

aaand to further the idea of bringing ppl (back) to the game, perhaps an automated ...

well a system wherein account signups have a "referrer" section and if ppl refer accounts that spend say 3000 turns (or whatever) the referrer gets x amount of turns free

event: most review posted on mmo sites :P

My idea really isn’t an event, but how to improve on event awards. When a player is awarded turns, is it possible to place a button or link on their realm’s main page that says something like "Lotto 160 - Click here for 30 turns"? Players wouldn’t have to worry about leaving their realms in a position where they will have wasted turns, and be able to use their awarded turns at their convenience.

Another tourni of Hurt/Heal would be cool in comments, it's been awhile.

Maybe we could do a "guess the alt" as well. Where people make up alts and then do a so many word post in that character. Afterwards people have one guess as to who the Alt belongs to, and if anyone guesses right they can win a few turns or cash.

Or a poetry one. I always liked poetry events.


Might be a while until we get a response though: the Voice is doing things off the game.

We so do. I'd even be willing to help run it - and would recuse myself from voting, too.

I haven't read through all of this, so sorry if I say something that has been said a thousand times before :P

What about a poker tournament? No chips to bet, but turns ;)

Evernight already has a MySpace which was created as part of the buildup for Massacre.

There is a stickied thread in Comments about it.

http://www.myspace.com/evernightgames

Not sure that there are many people actively 'advertising' as a 'top friend' or posting messages about the game though. I suppose there may be a possible turn incentive available for advertising via MySpace. Will have a think about it.

-----

Heal or Hurt, is a cool idea as long as someone is prepared to run it. I dont have the time to dedicate to being online for closing rounds etc.

Gerien, message me over PM if you want to set it up.

----

Iado, I am in the process of writing such a tool. But for now, until I find the time to finish it, I have to do it manually.

----

MoP,

Poker might be fun. With the chess tournies, we usually leave it down to the players to organise. It's easier with this type of thing. I have no problems with any kind of tourny being run for turns prizes as long as it's open to all.

PM me if you want to set something up
George! Get the Dragon .. Yes Dear
Claim Events turns by sending me a PM containing:
Realm Number, Game and the Event(s) and Prize(s) you are claiming.

Heal/Hurt is incredibally hard to run unless you have the time to sit glued to your computer while rounds are going :P But I think it'd be fun to see another one.

Event Name: Canon Mixer


This would be where you take the names of the personalities of Canon and jumble them up. You get 25 names, 1 point a name, a bonus 5 points if you get all 25 correct. I'd even be willing to do it myself, should the Voices need a break.

I've seen this done on other boards. How about predicting weekend box office results? ie ranking what will be the top ten movies this week, closest to the actual results wins. Enter by end of Thursday, results mid Monday?
