Hello all! Just making an announcement that Game 5 will be ending on February 28th. Do try and rack up those points while you can! The alliances are neck and neck at this point. Keep it up!

The poll is now closed, and I think everyone can see the results? Not too sure. Anyway, it was 10 yes, 8 not sure but willing to try, and 1 no. So.. the alliances will be Black Mages + Thieves versus White Mages + Monks + Soldiers + Dragoons.

I'll be removing people from their previous alliances and re-adding them so be prepared for a bunch of LJ notifs, heh.

On a side note four members have been contacted regarding low participation and they've not responded, so they're being cut :( As before, however, if you missed the PM for whatever reasons and decide that you'd like to join again, all is needed is a PM or a comment somewhere to let me know. We don't demand participation but we definitely remove members who aren't earning points so that we get an idea of the team sizes.

Aaaaand Game 5 starts tomorrow!

We've made some changes so that reminders are now done in [ profile] airship_lounge instead of respective team communities. Please contact [ profile] breyzyyin with your email address if you would like to be on the mailing list (for those of you who don't have the time to check LJ that often)

Please help to promote [ profile] ff_land if you can! <3

WE ARE URGENTLY IN NEED OF SOMEONE TO CREATE BANNERS FOR OUR NEW ALLIANCES: BLACK MAGES + THIEVES VS THE OTHER TEAMS I'M TOO LAZY TO TYPE OUT. We need them for point updates (I think we only need one for each alliance.) If you would like to volunteer, just let me know here!

Hello all! I apologize for the lateness, but there should be nothing stopping us from starting Game 5 on Nov 15th.

Let me introduce your mod team -- these are the people you want to contact if you have any problems.

Neutral - [ profile] lightofeilia, [ profile] sunflower_mynah, [ profile] toffeethesnob, [ profile] the_404_error, [ profile] xinnk
[ profile] airship_lounge - [ profile] sai_salamander, [ profile] sunflower_mynah, [ profile] toffeethesnob
[ profile] moogle_workshop - [ profile] sunflower_mynah, [ profile] toffeethesnob (art), Yin of [ profile] breyzyyin (fanfic)
[ profile] ff_minigames - [ profile] toffeethesnob, [ profile] the_404_error, [ profile] lightofeilia
[ profile] ultima_arena - [ profile] lightofeilia, [ profile] xinnk

We will have no team mods this game. What's going to happen is that reminders will be posted about twice weekly or once weekly over at [ profile] airship_lounge. Once again, I'd like to remind all members that you can post in your team community even if you are not a team mod.

As soon as we decide alliance (see post below), I'll add members to their respective communities and we can get on with Game 5!

So the mod team deliberated for awhile about the next game's alliances, and a point came up:

Black Mages and Thieves have yet to be friends!

The only balanced way this can work out, however, is the two teams versus the other four combined. And, in fact, if you take the scores of the previous game and apply them to this potential alliance, it's about even.

As Game 5 starts Nov 15th, I'm aware this is kind of late, but if you could respond to the poll regarding what you think about this potential alliance, it would be great.

Hi, guys! As some of you know, we had Participation Banners bought using gil this game here. [ profile] chacusha, who made these lovely banners, has offered to continue making them for Game 5. So this poll is to ask your input for what you'd like to see in next game's banners. :)

And while we're at it: you can check your gil here!

Hi! These are the full score breakdowns of each community, in chart form. I'm pretty fail at coding, I'm afraid, so let me know if these don't work for you or something.

This is part 1 of the endgame feedback. I apologize; it's been hastily put together.

All comments will be screened. You can also send me a PM if you want to remain completely anonymous (screened comments can still be seen by semi-neutral mods).

The text-entry areas only have a max of 255 characters.

General & Classchange )

Um, I think that's it. Part 2 will be up shortly~

The poll will be open until November 3rd, Saturday.

Game 4 ends today!

It's been a rather quiet game, but we're hoping to speed things up for a more lively Game 5, so we're setting a start date for Game 5 for November 15th.

For new members, this will probably be your first between-games period, no? Sadly, during this period, all point-making communities close for tallying. The only communities open will be your respective team and alliance communities, and [ profile] airship_lounge.

This game, however, we're making a few exceptions. [ profile] moogle_workshop closes tomorrow, on the 2nd of October, so get your fanworks in quick for some few last-minute points! [ profile] ff_eventsquare will be open until the October 15th, and you can earn points until then. [ profile] ff_classchange will also be open until the 15th. Final results/game winners are expected to be up by around the 25th.

We're working hard to minimize boring times during this period, but remember that [ profile] airship_lounge is open for posting by any member, so feel free to spark discussions or just start a "what's everyone doing lately" post.

This is quite important as during the between-games period, a members cut will be done. [ profile] ff_land does not require extreme participation in order to stay a member (we appreciate lurkers too!) however we do a necessary cut to estimate team sizes so we know how to balance out the teams for next game. Any participation in [ profile] airship_lounge up till the start of Game 5 will still counts (remember, you earn gil for posting in AL and you can use your gil to buy stuff).

I'll put up a list of members who might get cut shortly before Game 5, and all you have to do to stay is comment on that post telling me you'd like to stay. That's it :)

During this time we also put up some feedback. Mod feedbacks will go up shortly after this, and general communities and activities feedback will be done by [ profile] arivess soon after too. We'll also be putting up rule changes if there are any, so if you have a suggestion or if you've found a loophole, please tell it to any one of the mods.

Finally, we're going to have a couple of mod positions open, so if you're interested, be on the lookout for mod applications, which will go up shortly too once all the mods have responded to whether or not they're staying on.

I believe that's it? Kinda lengthy, I know. Good game, everyone! Let's see who wins :)

Hi, guys. Sorry for the late announcement, because I just got confirmation of this.

Eventsquare booth runners: please post your booths now? Keep them under members-lock until Ets declares the event open, please.

Thank you all so much.
