Huh. I missed August. Must've gotten sharked to death.

Anyway, you all know the drill by now! I put up some nifty OCD threads, you comment with any ideas for plots or events that you'd like to see happen, and maybe someday they will! If you leave a new idea, I'll update this handy-dandy spreadsheet here, all the better for keeping track of what has and hasn't been done yet!

Pride Reminder!

That's this weekend, folks! The Parade will be on Saturday, and there will be a Picnic on Sunday! There's a post with more information, sign-ups, suggestions, and brainstorming over here! If you'd like to run your own event of any persuasion in conjunction with Pride, feel free!

Hey, all! It's a new month, which means I'm taking a break from all of this 'staring outside at the rain on Canada Day' that I'm doing in order to bring you a shiny new brainstorming post! You probably all know the drill by now. I put up some nifty OCD threads, you comment with any ideas for plots or events that you'd like to see happen, and maybe someday they will! If you leave a new idea, I'll update this handy-dandy spreadsheet here, all the better for keeping track of what has and hasn't been done yet!

Please hold for OCD or I'll unleash a soggy moose upon you! OCD is up, brainstorm away!

Yes, it is time! Fandom Island is a place with a vastly varied sort of population, (and a vastly varied sort of player base!) and it's about time we celebrate some of that! On the weekend of July 8th-9th Fandom will be celebrating it's first (possibly annual!) Pride weekend! Yes, the whole weekend will be set aside for events meant to celebrate love and identity, and anybody is welcome to join!

Anybody. We won't be putting up with any Trans/Bi/Ace/Aro exclusion garbage here, though given that everyone in this game is basically the most awesome, I'm not predicting that becoming an issue. Y'all are valid, my dudes, ladies, and gentle-enbies. If anyone wants to say otherwise, they're welcome to meet me out behind the shed, where I'll viciously chew off their kneecaps.

The festivities will kick off on Saturday, July 8th, with a Parade! Anybody on the island is welcome to ready their best rainbows and participate, or simply come out to enjoy solidarity and acceptance and unity and defiance. All that good stuff! There will be minor OCD in the comments for this one, mostly to get a feel for numbers, though registration in advance isn't necessary if on Saturday morning you wake up with the urge to throw everyone and their puppies at the parade anyway. Bonus points for puppies. Puppies make everything better.

They'll continue on Sunday, July 9th, with a picnic in the park! There will, of course, be the requisite food and mingling for the picnic, as well as any activities that people might want to suggest or organize. I'm basically demanding a bouncy castle, here. Halifax has conditioned me to think that no Pride is complete without a bouncy castle. There will be OCD for this stuff, too, naturally!

On top of all of THAT, we're opening the floor for anybody else who might want to contribute an event of any sort to come forward and do just that! Does your character want to run a pancake breakfast, some manner of sporting event, a LGBT+ film festival, drag show, or what-have-you? We'd love to have it! This stuff will be up to individual players to post over the weekend, and the OCD thread for this can be used both for coordinating and making sure nobody doubles up on any awesome ideas you might have! If you're planning on doing something like this, please lay claim to it in the OCD before going ahead and posting that weekend, thanks!

This isn't to be confused with the yet-to-come BDE brainstorming post. This sucker is for random events and whatnot that people would like to putter around with in the game!

Remember that anything mentioned here isn't guaranteed to happen, that still needs to go through the proper adminly channels, but that stuff mentioned here has happened, too. Mmm, delicious weekend events.

Hey people!

It is officially fall, when the leaves flutter from the trees and young people's fancies turn to thoughts of exposed bosoms and gnawing on roast turkey legs.

(Is that not how it goes?)

On Saturday, Oct. 8, Fandom High will be celebrating the season with a trip to the Maryland Renaissance Fair. We've done this once before, in 2011, and it was a lot of fun; we're excited for the repeat. Activities will include vendors, performances, a chance to play dress-up, elephant rides, and all the ye olde faste foode you can shove in your pie-hole. The day is being organized IC by Didi and Deadpool, who will get up flyers about it over the next few days. It's open to students, staff and townies.

If you have questions or comments, leave 'em here. Otherwise, see you at the fair!
[identity profile]
Okay, we have odds numbers of signups for both students and adults, which is making attempts to do lineups impossible. So, if anyone wants to either sign ONE MORE PERSON up in either category or retract one of their signups, they would be my hero. Only the first offer for each students and adults will be accepted and I will kindly force any follow up volunteers to stick to their commitments. :D

This is more crucial for adults than students, for the record. Worst case for students is Frank having dates with different drinks.

Okay, all good now. Thanks!

Hi, I've been working too much this week and am tired. Here's a last call reminder for 3MD. Rosters have evened out a pleasant amount, but if anyone else wants to join, I welcome you gratefully.

Thank you all again for your interest in 3MD. It is appreciated.

3MD reminder!

Don't forget, 3MD is this Saturday and signups end Wednesday night!

Speaking of signups, I asked for guys and you delivered. We have enough people signed up to guarantee 5 rounds of dates and for once we're not hurting for guys. In fact, you responded SO well that altogether 74% of the people signed up are guys (9/12 students, 8/11 adults). So - in the last request I expected to make two weeks ago - if there are any female characters who would be interested in signing up to give the lineups some variety, it would be appreciated.

I truly love this stuff. Genuinely, thanks for the response (and for keeping me on my toes). :)

3MD the 21st!

Sunday, September 11th, 2016 10:13 pm
[identity profile]
Hey, look at the time. My watch says it's about 13 days to Three Minute Dates. Yes, my watch is weird. Anyway, the most important date - the one on the calendar - is Saturday, September 24th. If you sign up in the comments to this post, you can have the joy of up to five short dates (in the name of romance or friendship) with a random selection of people!

The traditional rules:

*3 Minutes = 10 pings, up to 5 from each character. You can of course take a ping or two to wrap things up, but please be efficient. If you're going to need more time with the new love of your life (or of the night), there will be a regular Caritas post set after 3MD.

*3MD is open to both adults and teenagers. Teachers and students will never be paired together, but students and townies might be, provided they are close enough in age to not be too weird and possibly illegal, or I can't avoid it for some reason.

*A strong attempt to pair characters up by sexual preference will be made. That said, gay/bi characters may end up with straight characters who have absolutely no interest. Or straight characters may end up together. That happens frequently.

*You can sign up with as many on-island characters as you want, but please keep in mind that each one commits you to up to 5 threads with people in all sorts of time zones with all kinds of schedules. Try not to sign up more than you can reasonably handle. That way everyone can have a chance to complete all of their dates.

*The post will go up Friday evening (September 23) and will be available for slowplay through the weekend. The bulk of the playing should take place on Saturday, but if you need to wrap things up on Sunday, that's fine. If you sign up and later find out that you won't be around at all on September 24, PLEASE let me know to take your characters off the list, especially if you've signed up with multiple characters. And if you know you won't be around at all that day, please don't sign up. It never feels good when somebody has a bunch of threads without any interaction.

*You might have noticed my use of the words "up to 5" a few times. Based on long-term sign-up trends, quite frankly, I don't expect to have enough signups to do 5 rounds. We'll see how sign-ups go! Student boys and any adults have been the low trends the past couple years, so please give it a thought ESPECIALLY if you have either of those. I'll be your friend if you do!

*Also, 3MD turns 21, so there's going to be an open bar.

If you're interested, please leave a comment to this post with your character's first and last names (written the way it should be called out during the event), type (student, teacher, townie) and gender preference (if any). Comments are screened by default, questions will be unscreened and answered. Signups will be open through Wednesday, September 21 at 11:59 PM Central to give me time to smash random numbers together.

Anyway! Brainstorming post! That monthly post where we storm our brains to come up with stuff to keep us somewhat more entertained than usual from time to time!

I'm not sure how it came to be March already. Weird year. The weeks take roughly a month each, and I could swear each month is only about a week long.

Anyway, it's time for the monthly brainstorming post! You know, that post for ideas and stuff, if there's anything you want to see come into being, from random events to Big Damn ones. The list for past ideas is over here, and I'll update it to add anything new anybody might add this time around.

Remember, just because something's been discussed in this post doesn't mean it'll necessarily happen. Somebody's still got to get the ball rolling on that stuff, develop the idea, take it to the admins and make it actually be a thing! But this is a good place for spitballing with the general population of the game to gauge interest or help fill in gaps that might be in your own planning.

Please hold for OCD! And we're good to go!

3MDXX Last Call

[identity profile]
Hey all! Signups for 3 Minute Dates end on Wednesday and if there are any adults who might be interested in some speed dating on Saturday, their signups would be GREATLY appreciated. Otherwise I'll have to go through the terrifying process of shattering tradition and reducing the event from 5 dates to 4. I know, history's greatest tragedy.

But otherwise, if anyone else is interested, there's always a chance of making a true personal connection with someone, possibly influenced by love potion. Or, more likely, you just get a nice conversation... possibly influenced by love potion. But the fun thing is that for the first time in a bit, the students are actually reasonably balanced. Thanks, student boys! My organizational skills thank you.
[identity profile]
Hey everyone! We've been at this for 200 years, so you know the deal. 3MDXX is a week from Saturday, so if you'll be around on 2/6, give a thought to signing a character up. Especially if you have an unattached woman about town, because so far we have two adult women and one of them is exclusively interested in women. Which could prove entertaining, even if I would like to avoid it staying that way. And I'll never complain about more signups in other categories, too. NEVER.

I'll do one final reminder and beg next week, because I treasure tradition.
[identity profile]
You know how counting things over time inevitably makes you feel old? Well, guess what? THREE MINUTE DATES IS TURNING 20 on Saturday, February 6! Our in-game speed dating can almost drink legally in the real world!

The ground rules are largely the same as ever. If you'd like to participate (ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE STUDENT BOYS, I'm getting that begging in early), please sign up in the screened comments to this post with your character's name (how you want them listed in the post), type (student/townie/teacher), and gender preference for their dates (if any).

But this isn't just a regular 3MD. This is 3MDXX, and as such we're straight up copying the special stipulation of 3MDX: There's a looooooooooooove potion stuck in Caritas's ventilation system above the lounge (and ONLY the lounge, sorry Tino). Throughout the dates, the HVAC may send that love potion your way and make you fall MADLY IN LOVE with your date. Once the date is over and you move, thus ending the potion's spell, it's up to you to figure out what happens. Did that love potion awaken feelings? Is it just embarrassing that you flirted THAT hard? Is it immediately forgotten because you got another whiff on your next date?

And just like 3MDX, it will be a joint RNG/opt-in process. If you would like to have me randomly assign at least one date where your character is influenced by the love potion, please let me know in your sign up. I'll give each round a 1/5 chance of getting whammied, so if the RNG is weirdly in your favor, you could get prompted a few times. You can also choose to have your character influenced for any date you pick.

3MD is a bit of a commitment as it is signing up for 5 threads (if the signups are there... I nearly dropped to 4 last time, so be aware that it's a possibility) of 10 comments (5 per person, which somehow equals 3 minutes) with people with all kinds of availability and time zones. The 3MD post will go up late on Friday, February 5 and be open for SP through the weekend, but the bulk of playing should happen on Saturday. If you sign up and later find out you won't be around at all on the 6th, please let me know so I can make the proper adjustments.

So, all that said, if you're up for five good times (and five easy chances for interaction), please sign up before 11:59 PM CST on Wednesday, February 3. Comments are screened by default!

I should probably just start doing these things on Sundays. The first Saturday of the month is a busy time around the island, it seems!

Anyway, for those not in the know, these posts are OOC posts that go up once a month for FH players to discuss ideas for island-wide shenanigans and other such nonsense. They've been used in the past to brainstorm random events, like those Tabula Rasa events where people on the island forget everything, right on up to Big Damn Events- that time David Bowie in tight pants made a big maze on the island was the brainchild of a brainstorming thread.

It should be noted that while these posts spawn a massive amount of awesome ideas - there's a compilation of previous suggestions put together here for everyone's convenience - just discussing it in a brainstorming post isn't a guarantee that these events will happen on the island. Actually making a BDE take place, for example, takes a buttload of planning and organization, and needs to have admin approval before it can go anywhere beyond the planning stages. Random events need to be cleared with the admin team as well, though they're typically a bit more straightforward to put into action.

I'll be putting up a bit of OCD within the post, with explanations as to what each thread is for. Until then, hold tight and wait before tagging in, or I'll subject you to all of Jono's shirtless icons. OCD up! You've all avoided Jono's shirtless icons for another month, well-done!

Hello Fandomites! I'm here to announce an event! Next Sunday, October 18, we're having a scavenger hunt!

How it works is this: we'll have teams of two, who will spend from morning until evening Fandom time to run around town, collecting or taking pictures of items that they'll present at the finish line. The first team back with all/the most items wins.

As for what we're collecting, well, that's why we have brainstorming! In this post, you can submit ideas for items that people can grab, or if you have a character/business who would volunteer an item, you can do that here. What we come up with in this post is the list of items you'll be looking for.

Signups end at midnight on Thursday, October 15. At that point I'll assign the teams, and run the RNG to see what order the teams come in. Results will be emailed you to the next day to avoid spoilers for the rest of the game, and also because if you want to preplay, or work anything out with other teams or players for items, you have a few days to do that.

On to the OCD!

As a final reminder, sign ups for 3MD end tomorrow (Wednesday) night. At the moment, well, things are going to be a little different than usual. Due to the way townie signups have gone, I'll probably be reducing it to 4 rounds unless there's a few people signing up just under the wire. There will still be something for "Round 5," whether it's just a free for all or a group date round or something, but I don't have that figured out just yet. Okay, there's enough adults to justify a fifth round. Thanks! I'll still take more signups, of course.

With the students, a lot of girls will be dating only girls.

I'm curious to see how exactly things turn out this time. :) Still with girls dating a lot of girls.

3MD Reminder

Thursday, September 17th, 2015 07:18 pm
[identity profile]
Something I learned recently: There are 45 students listed in the character directory. 13 of them are male. Unsurprisingly, the student signups for 3 Minute Dates (signups open through Wednesday!) are in roughly the same proportion. What I'm getting at is that if you play a boy who likes girls, or a girl who really likes girls, you're in for a good time if you sign up for 3MD!

The adults are a bit more fluid, let's say, but are relatively low on signups overall. So if you have an adult who might be up for conversation, friendship, and maybe romance, there's plenty of space open!

Enough shilling for now!

A week late for what I hope are obvious reasons, but don't think I wasn't tempted to see what ideas any of the game's alumni might have suggested, if they managed to find this post through the flurry of stuff that was getting posted last weekend.

Anyway, the list of past suggestions is here, and OCD is on the way up and ready to have at!

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't curious to see if last weekend gave any people some 'omg remember the thing? We should do the thing again' ideas.
[identity profile]
Hey everyone. It's 3MD time! SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26! What better way to end the month than with a series of dates running 3 minutes (a.k.a. 10 pings, 5 from each character)? I'll tell you. There is no better way. Do that, then wait for the month to end.

If you'd like to participate, please sign up in the comments with your character's first and last names (written the way it should be called out during the event), type (student, teacher, townie) and gender preference (if any). Gender preference will be a primary factor in pairing people up, but is entirely dependent on how signups go. You can sign up with as many characters as you'd like, but please remember that each one is a commitment to five threads, so please make sure you can handle those commitments.

The 3MD post will go up the evening of Friday, September 25 and be open for SP through the weekend, but the bulk of the playing should be done on Saturday. If you sign up and later find out that you won't be around at all on September 26, PLEASE let me know to take your characters off the list, especially if you've signed up with multiple characters.

If you're interested either for dating opportunities, excuses to get some scheduled interaction, or just to make the balancing of lineups easier for me (PLEASE!), please sign up before 11:59 PM CST on Wednesday, September 23th. Comments are screened by default!

We interrupt your regularly scheduled BDE shenanigans to bring you August's brainstorming post! Complete with a link to the list, so you can see what brainstorming has been brainstormed before!

OCD is on the way, you know the drill. All OCD is posted, and you may brainstorm!

Yesterday's regularly scheduled brainstorming post was postponed slightly due to the holiday, but it's here now for your possibly-slightly-hung-over idea-sharing pleasure!

Here's the stuff that's been suggested before! Have at it!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the party and came up with a whole bunch of I Never prompts! From Sunday through Saturday, ANYONE IN FANDOM can use the following prompts for inspiration throughout the week with Irony (along with OOC planning and coordination) to do some things they've never done before. Whether it's actually Irony setting something into motion or just your character being more open to, say, making out with a stranger because of something in their lives is up to you. Or if your character has done these things, they still CAN do them. They just won't have Irony's influence. But peer pressure works just as well!

Please note that in the comments to this post are some OCD threads if you have questions or want to brainstorm some stuff out.

And with that, the list of things that, if your character has NOT done them in the past, you can choose from:

Hi, I still exist. So does Johnny, I swear!

So, this summer I wanted to bring back a little thing we did a couple years ago, where a group of students had a party, played some I Never, listed a bunch of things they'd never done, and then spent the next week totally doing those things because of the personification of Irony running around.

That's right, the riff on Death finding ludicrous ways to make sure people die is back, and just like in that dumb film series, the sequel has to be bigger. So, while there will once again be a 6th Floor Common Room party on Saturday, June 27 where I Nevers will be compiled into a big list of prompts to inflict upon people, this time Irony can affect anyone on the island, further reducing the accuracy of the word "Irony."

Last time, I Nevers included changing hair color, turning into animals, getting tattoos, being hung over, going to a strip club, and - OF COURSE - mooning the principal. How these things actually happened was up to the player, whether it was Fandom magic or peer pressure or just feeling like Zoe needed to see their butts. They might be magically influenced or it might just sound like a good idea when someone else suggests it. The important thing is that if they hadn't done one of those things, for the following week they were suddenly likely to do it for some reason.

The same rules apply this time, only wider. If your teacher or townie has never mooned Zoe, well, maybe you'll have a prompt to do so. It seemed like a good idea at the time! And maybe a dog stole your pants.

The party will go up (early, for SP) on the 27th, the list of I Nevers will be posted the morning of the 28th, and then the spirit of Irony will influence things through the end of July 4th. So hopefully nobody says they've never shot off fireworks in the nude because that could end poorly.

The only restrictions are 1) no "I never murdered someone in this room" or anything like that because of course, 2) the party itself is limited to students, and 3) Irony will only influence people who have NEVER DONE THAT THING THAT IS BEING DONE. If somebody chooses to moon Zoe completely of their own free will, that's their own fault.

Questions? Comments? Large bags of cash with non-sequentially numbered bills?

I actually agonized over whether I should post this yesterday before I decided that if I didn't have any brains or time edgewise to participate in a brainstorming post around Welcome Picnic day, nobody else was probably going to either.

So! A brainstorming post, only one day late! Complete with a list of previous ideas!

Have at it!
