7.12: He Said She Said Game

I need some more time to collect all the hair nominations and set up the voting (any seconding of the suggestions so far would be appreciated!), so in the meantime, a new activity: a game my friend taught me that she called the He Said She Said game.

How it works )

If we get answers quickly (like > 2 by Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday), I'll run multiple rounds. It's fun when you quickly get to see the story you made, so ideally, just fill out the form really quick and we'll get multiple rounds in. :)

DEADLINE: (Sunday June 29, Tuesday July 1), Thursday July 3 @ 11:59P EDT (3:59AM GMT)
POINTS: You can fill out one form per round for 10 points each round

7.11: Hair Battle - Nominations

I've been wanting to do this for a while! Basically we're going to have a series of votes to determine who the Final Fantasy character with the best hair is! There are multiple categories, so multiple ways to have the "best hair". But first, I need help with nominations! I've already put in some nominations for some of the more bizarro categories (that hopefully have some good nominations from more obscure works), but now it's your turn to make suggestions!

The categories! )
Nomination rules / how to nominate )

DEADLINE: Thursday June 26 @ 11:59P EDT (3:59AM GMT)
POINTS: 2 points for nominating in a category or suggesting categories, up to 30 points

P.S. These are the kinds of things I come across when searching for Final Fantasy hairstyles. And now you have a pretty good ballpark estimate of how long I've been planning this activity.

7.09: Song Lyrics

For this activity, your task is to give a Final Fantasy song of your choice lyrics! They can be serious lyrics or you can go the Brentalfloss parody direction. If you have a song and lyric style in mind, go for it! Otherwise, there will be a suggestion/requests thread to give you some ideas of songs that might work well with lyrics.

You get 20 points per stanza for up to two stanzas -- you can write two stanzas for a single song or write a single stanza for two songs. What counts as a stanza is usually about four lines of lyrics. Taking Blinded by Light as an example:

Section A lasts from about 0:11 to 0:33 and repeats again until about 0:55 (two stanzas)
Section B then picks up from 0:58 to 1:30 (could be one or two stanzas)

Basically, if the same melody line repeats exactly, each time it repeats will count as a separate stanza. Lyric writing is kind of hard, so I'm going to be lenient about what counts.

DEADLINE: Sunday June 8 @ 11:59P EDT (3:59AM GMT)
POINTS: 20 points for writing for writing a stanza of lyrics, up to 40 points; 5 points for requesting songs, up to 10 points

Hey all! I'm sure everyone has heard of scattergories but if you haven't, see below on how to play!

- There will be 10 and a given letter for everyone.
- Your job is to have an example for each category that begins with the given letter
- For example, if the category is Games and the letter is F, "Final Fantasy" works as an example, so does "Fallout".
- You get 3 points for a unique example, and 2 points if it's not unique.

Final Fantasy is pretty vast so it's likely that everyone will get full max points, but hey, points!

The given letter will be R! Fill in the form below and submit!

This activity ends Sunday June 1st 11:59PM EST!

7.06: "Advice Animal"-style Memes

I hope I can explain this. The challenge here is to take a Final Fantasy character, put their head over a pinwheel background, and make them into an Advice Animal-style meme.

Some examples of Advice Animals: Socially Awkward Penguin (sums up awkward scenarios), Courage Wolf (all about motivating people to live courageously), and Good Guy Greg (meme summarizing that legitimately decent guy you know). They often feature a two-line joke, setup on top and punchline on bottom. More information on these kinds of memes at the Know Your Meme page.

Your task is to do a Final Fantasy-themed meme of this type. For example, you can have "Ridiculously Optimistic Snow" and then make some example memes inspired by his FFXIII antics.

So to get 30 points for this activity:
(1) Decide what your meme will be about, name it, and make a template for it (e.g. in an image editing program). There might also be tools to do this, but I'm not sure.
(2) Using your template, make 4+ examples of how you'd use it. You can do this fairly easily in an image editing program, but there are also definitely tools that help with this (quickmeme, memegenerator, etc.)

DEADLINE: Thursday May 23 @ 11:59P EDT (3:59AM GMT)
POINTS: 30 points for making a meme and 4 examples

Hi all! It's time for: MINORITY RULE!

In this luck-based game, I will give two choices (A vs B), and all you need to do is reply to the appropriate question thread with your selection and pray that you are part of the minority! This is because at the end of the deadline I'll tally the answers and the selection with the most votes loses. They get eliminated, and the winners will go on to the next round, and so on until there's only one winner left. In the case of a tie, players will have to re-vote again. If there are two people left at the end of these rounds, they'll both win.

- 5 points for participating
- 10 points for surviving each round

DEADLINE for 1ST QUESTION: Wednesday, May 14th, 11:59 EST

All comments are screened.

7.03: Tag Banners

As is traditional, gonna start this cycle off with some tag banners! This challenge is super easy: just make a small banner with your name/ username, the class you've been sorted into, and a picture that fits your class. You can then use this tag banner while sorting, submitting to contests, etc. (anytime you'd need to specify your team name).

Tag banners should be no more than 350 px wide, and 200 px tall. (Wider tag banners okay as long as the height is significantly less than 200 px.)

Submit your banner in the comments to get 10 points for your team.

DEADLINE: Thursday May 15 @ 11:59P EDT (3:59AM GMT)
POINTS: 10 points total for submitting a tag banner
