Secret Santa Summer Nodeshell Challenge 2011
August 5th - 18th
Secret Santa: An event in which employees of an organization are required (either explicitly or through peer pressure and the threat of being a social outcast) to purchase gifts for another, randomly picked employee on or around Christmas.
- Sign-ups are open from now until August 9th. We're doing this fast and dirty, folks.
- If you sign up, send me a nodeshell of your own choosing or design. If it is uncreated, for anonymity's sake do not actually create it.
- On August 10th, any new nodeshells will be created by me or another third party and all the nodeshells in play will be randomly assigned to participants.
- Participants will have until August 18th to fill their assigned nodeshell.
I don't know, I'll probably throw some GP
- Can I submit a nodeshell that is already in existence?
- Can I submit a nodeshell that is created by a user other than myself?
- What kind of nodeshells are you looking for? Creative? Factual?
Who am I, your mother?
- What if I do not like my randomly assigned nodeshell?
- Someone else's nodeshell is cooler than mine. Can I fill it?
After you have filled your own assigned nodeshell, you may post write-ups under other nodes in the quest. If someone fails to fill their own assigned nodeshell, this may be the only way to unlock HIDDEN FUN STUFF (see below).
- A nodeshell in the quest has inspired me, but I'm not even playing. Can I fill it?
Yes, but please wait until after the contest is over!
- Wait, so are people going to start filling other peoples nodeshells after they're done with their own... do we still get credit if someone gets to ours first?
Yes. You complete the quest by publishing a writeup under your assigned title, regardless of how many are already there.
Nodeshell assignments are pipelinked below. Elves who have successfully filled by their nodeshell will be bolded. Nodeshells that have been successfully filled will be bolded.
HIDDEN FUN STUFF!
If all nodeshells from the contest are filled by the deadline – regardless of who fills them – those elves who have successfully filled their own assigned shells will be given the option to proceed to a SECRET SUDDEN DEATH NIGHTMARE ROUND where they will compete to receive a ¡¡¡mysterious prize!!! in the mail.
NIGHTMARE MODE UNLOCKED.
