mod post  


hi guys!

I come with both good news and bad, firstly i've decided to put [community profile] theaviary on a little hiatus. Things are pretty busy with me & this comm is a lot of work. This will be for the month of April, but i'm not 100% sure things will be the same when i come back.

I know its always rough when a mod packs it in, but i do hope to ressurect this comm as ~something in the future. I think mostly the team comms are pretty quiet and it might be better to do things a little differently.

HOWEVER i don't want you to be bored, so i'm matching this up with a NEW comm that has opened, that is a little more organised and refined than this one - but with the same concept this comm is based on. I'm going to be hopefully harrassing the lovely [personal profile] digitaldesigner to take some of the open challenges too :D



DW: info | sign ups
LJ: info | sign ups


So please please please consider joining there, and checking that out while we take a short break over April. Results WILL be up for the month of march and there might be 1 or 2 more challenges. You're also welcome to continue to do challenges if you want - just be aware your points might be a little meaningless :D

ARGH this post is tl;dr now, so feel free to ask questions in the comments/tell me how you feel.

February's Fandom : Leverage  
Each month will also have an broad theme that ties into a fandom. You do not need to know the fandom, you don't even need to like the fandom, it'll be loosely related to the games & lottery challenges for the month :D

I know not everyone will always be happy about the theme, but i'll be sticking to reasonably popular fandoms to try and keep as many people as happy as i can. If you'd like to suggest a fandom, feel free!

The theme for February will be Leverage

FEEDBACK

I would love your feedback! too many challenges, not enough challenges, you want more games/graphics/fic/social posts etc?

Also you can earn up to 150 points for the month, after that your scores will be BANKED, and you will be set back to 0 points for February. You can continue to enter challenges though, after 9pm EST jan 31st they will count for Feb.

Stuff  


I didn't do a saturday social post this week, i'll try and make sure they are every second week though.

As far as reminders go, trivia is due on the 15th :D
Challenge 012: Trivia Tuesday January 15th 9pm EST time | 20 points

Now, its almost the middle of the first month and i hope you are enjoying yourselves! I know there are a lot of challenges, but obviously with the point limit you can't do them all, so hopefully its not too stressful.

You can check your current points on the spreadsheet at any time.

NOW. onto the big stuff. I'd like some help! :D I was wondering if anyone would like to be a team captain so to speak for your nests? just make sure people are having fun, getting reminders, posting social stuff?

I'd also really appreciate suggestions, feedback & any challenge/social ideas you have! you can leave them here or at any of the mod posts.

tl;dr
- hope you are having fun?
- would you like to be team captain?
- do you have any feedback?
- would you like to submit challenge ideas, or host a challenge?

HELLO  


The Aviary officially opens in a few days!!! YAY.

Some of you already are well on your way to 150 points for the month, but over the next few weeks there will be weekly games, trivia, & a few random short challenges. Each month there will be ONE lottery challenge.

Each month will also have an broad theme that ties into a fandom. You do not need to know the fandom, you don't even need to like the fandom, it'll be loosely related to the games & lottery challenges for the month, of which there will be a total of 6.

I know not everyone will always be happy about the theme, but i'll be sticking to reasonably popular fandoms to try and keep as many people as happy as i can. If you'd like to suggest a fandom, feel free!

The theme for January will be Supernatural.

Mod Post  


Hello! Occasionally you'll see not just challenges but mod posts and perhaps social posts here, I WANTED TO SAY HI. I'm super excited we already have almost 30 members, which to be honest was my aim, because 10+ per team is exceptional and i can't believe we're almost there.

Over the next two weeks, I'll be posting more challenges for January, and Perhaps a couple of december only challenges.

Some Quick things
- there won't be any time-based challenges here with the exception of perhaps bingo. there will be a few luck-based challenges compared to the others which require some skill.

- you can check your score and your teams score at any time on the spreadsheet. I will be entering the points as soon as i get your comment, rather than waiting til the end of the challenge. Its a good idea to check regularly to make sure i don't make a mistake

- if you have any suggestions, want to host a challenge, or have an idea for a challenge, let me know! i'm sure you'll have great ideas that i haven't even thought of yet!

Hope you have a great day :D
