Event Rules and Info.

Postby Voice Circe » Tue Feb 11, 2003 5:55 pm

Collecting Turns

PM Voice Aeneas with the following information:
  • Link or name if the Event you won turns in
  • Number of turns you won
  • Kingdom number and game it is in that you want the turns awarded to
Up to 80 turns awarded per 1-week intervals. The exception to this rule is when a special Event awards a full set of turns.
*Note, this is subject to change as Events participation grows and turns awarded grows with it.

General Evernight Rules:
  • Do not make an ass of yourself.
  • Do not post bug reports on the boards, over ICQ, or in IRC unless asked specifically by staff.
  • Do not spam or post redundant messages.
  • Do not post kingdom numbers or kingdom names on the boards.
  • Pornography, Piracy or other illegal material is not allowed.
  • Do not post links or advertisements to hate or Anti-Evernight sites. This includes racial, ethical, or sexually related sites.
Event Forum specific rules:

  • Do not cheat to win. In scavenger hunts, do not copy someone elses links, etc. We all know what cheating means.
  • The winners thread is for staff use. Just because your name didn't get listed doesn't mean you didn't win. Check the event thread itself for winners.
  • Do not attempt to collect turns for an event you did not win, or more turns than you earned. This will result in a warning and a ban from participating in future events.

Player-sponsored Events

In the past we have had great success with player-sponsored events. I enjoyed them and I believe the players did as well. They will work by the old rules, those being:
  • A staff member must determine prize amounts (if any are to be awarded) for any thread started by a non staff member.. This person must be Events Staff or Admin.
  • Any event started for awards in-game must be done with permission by Admin or Events Staff prior to said event being posted and played, no exceptions.
  • Events may be started with no prizes, but must clearly state in the opening post that there will not be a prize. Satff may chose to change this at their discretion.
  • B. Your event must follow this format:
  • Event description
  • Means of winning
  • Means of submitting (in thread, by email, etc..)
  • How the judging will take place and who will be judging it.
  • Time it will begin and end.

1. Total turns per two-week interval has been increased as of 03/03/04.
2. Turn intervals decreased from 2-weeks to 1-week as of 04/17/04 to accomodate Lottery winners who also win other weekly Events.
3. Total turns awarded per person per week increased to 80 turns from 75; will take effect as of 01/23/05.
4. Player-sponsored event rules & turn donation rules revised as of 28/10/07.
5. Turn donations no longer allowed as of 05/10/05.

We have decided to stop the practice of being able to donate turns to another account or player. Players wishing to gain turns through the events need to be participating in the events. Turns awarded for events will only be awarded to the person who wins them in an event for his or her own use.

We have relaxed the rule about only Staff members posting events in this forum. All players are now welcome to start events.

However, any event thread started by a player (rather than Staff member) will not include prizes by default. Anyone offering turn prizes without Staff (Events or Admin) authorisation will be warned.

If a Staff member wishes to grant turns for a player started event, that is their call. Do not post threads and expect for turn prizes to be added to them.
