Woah, so this talk about Halloween actually gave me an idea! Since the traditions for Christmas and halloween are slightly different, we can change the premise a little if we want to! We can't really send treats like you are suppose to get at halloween, but we can perhaps do something along the lines of sending people a picture via pm or call out to them on a special thread for it of our personas in any halloween costume that we want to draw ourselves in (or as someone in the shops to do it, which would get more business in for them), say trick or treat! and the people have about two weeks to send something back, whether that is a doodle, prey points, simple edit etc. They should be quick little gifts since it is not a one on one interaction but rather giving stuff to multiple people.
Are people interested in something like that? I would be down for that
That's an interesting idea! But I dunno how much time everybody would have for a custom thing for each trick or treater. Maybe just like a general thing, like... one person has a thread where they have little doodles of candies and the code to put it as your avatar or in your signature. Kinda like leaving out a candy bowl for people to get. And of course, some people might only give out 1 thing and that's totally fine. Just leave it up to people to see how much effort they want to put into it.
Yeah, that sounds like a good idea for the code thing, since a lot of people DO just leave out candies (and on here, there is no way that the first person can just hoard all the candies). As a clarification, for the custom thing, it is really only meant to be a five minute thing, or prey points or something that doesn't take long at all, unlike with SS that it is more encouraged to put more effort into it. However, people can decide how much they want to put together for the people gathering "treats"! I think that'll be part of the fun of it!
It seems like you might get pushed into doing this though Vegas, so I can step in for a secondary helper/co-host if needed I guess. Halloween is on a Monday this year, so I will be online for at least part of the day, but there is both a weekend and midterms which means I won't be only for the couple of days before that, so I wouldn't be a first choice for the main host. I don't know if you need two people for this though.
