The YouChew Festival -- Final Preparation

In preparation for the upcoming two-year anniversary of this incarnation of YouChew Poop at the end of March and beginning of April, as well as the three-year anniversary of YouChew as a whole on May 24, I am pleased to announce the preliminary organization of the YouChew Festival .

This forum has been around for a long time, and this year, we’d like to celebrate our anniversary with a shitload of events – not only events organized by the staff, but events organized by the userbase at large. We’ve grown a great deal since the days of Vanilla and Conrad’s administration, when sixteen users on at one time was a lot. We’ve grown to the point where we can have large scale community events.

It is with these things in mind that we will organize the Festival.

Overview

The Festival will take place from March 21 until April 6 .

The most important part of the Festival is that it is primarily not directly organized by the staff, but rather, the users will be placed in charge of organizing the events. The staff will provide events of their own and provide the stage for the events, but the Festival cannot be successful without the combine, collected efforts of the userbase.

Users will apply to become Festival Organizers, a usergroup which will comprise all those involved with the Festival preparations. These users will have access to a special private section of the forum, where preparations will take place.

Applications to become Festival Organizers will begin now and close March 13 , to allow time to sufficiently prepare events.

Festival Stalls, Kiosks, and Pavilions

The events of the Festival – in keeping with the name – will be referred to as Stalls, Kiosks, and Pavilions. What kinds of stalls and kiosks will be at the Festival?

All the stalls and kiosks will be located in a centralized Festival section of the forum, which will be active only during the Festival.

The stalls and kiosks don’t need to be anything particularly elaborate, though they certainly can be, and we encourage users to be creative. Just because you might be able to organize an event in a context other than the Festival doesn’t mean you cannot organize it for the Festival. Collabs, contests, art activities, and the like are good choices.

The best events are those which can last for the entire duration of the Festival or most of it and involve a great deal of people. Activities that lots of people can join in will ensure that the Festival is a success. There is nothing wrong, however, with events which are relatively short lived. Screenings of high quality videos in YouTube streams or elsewhere could be fun group events organized as part of the Festival.

Organizers will receive Kermit medals for organizing events, and winners of approved contests are eligible for the Elmo medal.

Some potential options are listed in the section below.

So you wanna organize an event?

What do you have to do to organize an event?

First, have an idea of what you want to do. Next, answer the following questions:

What is the general nature of the event? Summarize the event.

How do you plan to operate the event logistically? Provide as much detail as possible.

Who are the organizers involved with this event? (Note that you can team up with several other users to organize an event if you expect it to be large and need more attention than one person acting alone.)

Send your answers in a PM to the Postman (found here: memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=17195 ) account. The staff will review your application, and if your idea is accepted, we will invite you to the Festival Organizer group, and you can get started organizing your event!

Here are some ideas you might consider if you want to organize an event.

Face Painting: Organizers draw on users' avatars.

Activity Book: In the formula of the TF2 activity book, organizers provide users with template images to edit and post.

Avatar Request: Users request small, quickly produced images from organizers.

Short Poop Contest: Organizers pick a theme or style of poop and judge users' submissions.

Music Exchange: Users post links to music downloads. Organizers neatly arrange the music in the first post for easy access.

Art Competition: Organizers pick a theme or style of art and judge users' submissions.

Don't limit yourselves to these ideas, though. Be creative!

    Who will all be using the host account? (or is that classified xd?)

    I'm curious because I'd like to know if I can get an answer/thought about an idea any time a mod is on, or if it's just Rabbit, etc.

    I'm curious because I'd like to know if I can get an answer/thought about an idea any time a mod is on, or if it's just Rabbit, etc.

    If you're talking about a poop contest, I thought the idea was for there to be a short (or maybe a few short) poop contest(s) which can be organized on an individual level.

    I think, if a poop contest were to be done, the organizer should not be the sole judge, though. Maybe that one could pick a few other organizers or non-organizers as judges, and they could each review each submission briefly and give a 1-10 rating. I don't think that would conflict with the idea (to have an easily-organized and themed poop contest) if those judges were at the discretion of the organizer.

    Now what Ing said about a collab contest sounds good, but I'm not quite sure how that would be done. Would each collab be made by a team, who would compete with each other team?

    Dunno, but maybe it's in a secret prepping room when it can be unveiled in a shiny new coat?

    That topic IS a beta, after all.

    Axe, just because you can't think of something doesn't mean you can't participate!

    Me, I think I might try to organize a CD-i collab.

    That sound fun to anyone?

    And there's plenty of time to work out kinks.

    I like the idea of 'contest' winners getting on to the main account, but I'll have to wait on Rabbit's hearing to see if that's gool.

    We'll have more than just me operating the host account. At the moment, there will be two or three mods using it probably.
