Post 2. RULES of the CHARITIES ON PARADE GAME

Grand Prize is a SEALED 2006 Thank You Letter!
The Grand Prize Winner was ~~cAnDyCrAzE~~ !


Each participating charity has agreed to post a clue somewhere on their first page in big (size 20) orange letters. The clue will lead you to the next charity in THE Parade.

The object of the game is to follow the clues and build THE Parade of Charities in the correct order. Then PM the parade to me.
TO WIN, PM me the list of charities starting with the first one and listing them in the correct order. Every ticket holder who correctly builds the Parade will win a small prize. One of those winners will be randomly chosen to win a SEALED 2006 Thank You Letter Grand Prize! And here is your first clue:

The Rags to ... well not Rags Charity realizes that ria11 really likes reading rules, so there you will reach the next clue.


WINNERS' CIRCLE:
(if I PM'd you that you were a winner and you don't see your name here, please PM me so I can correct the oversight!)

2k BUMPING CONTEST!


Okay, Calling All Ticket Holders! Let's get this party started with a lot of bumps to get the thread some attention! I will be running tandem bumping contests: one for individuals and one for charity tag teams!

INDIVIDUAL BUMPERS

Rules:
*Post in the thread and NUMBER your bumps.
example:
ANYbody
Bump #1

*Bumps must be numbered sequentially (1,2,3,4...)
*You may use the word "bump," a graphic, or another posted word/phrase --just please be consistent --it makes it easier to check!
*The bumper with the most bumps wins
a January Thank you letter
Second place wins 1k in Gaia gold,
and third place wins 500 gold.
350g goes to 4th place
150g to fifth place!

*Start bumping on Feb.15th at 12:00AM your time zone--ends midnite on the 19th your time zone.



CHARITY TAG TEAM BUMPERS

Rules:
*Register your charity's TEAM in the first post by listing the name of your bumpers. Each needs to be a valid ticket holder to compete. Yes, a charity can have a team of ONE! 3nodding
example:
Sample Charity Mule
My team for Sample Charity is XYZ, Abbadabbadoo, and Zima Bump #1

*ONE team member at a time may post in the thread and must state the charity's name and NUMBER your bumps. The sequence of posts might look a lot like this...
example:
XYZ
Sample Charity #2

ANYbody
Bump #7

XYZ
Sample Charity #3

Lucky1
Lucky Charity #19

Zima
Sample Charity #4
(here Zima has taken over and XYZ is no longer bumping)

*You may use the word "bump," a graphic, or another posted word/phrase --just please be consistent --it makes it easier to check! SO have your team all use the same thing!
*Your Bumps must be numbered sequentially(1.2.3.4...). And only one team member can be bumping/posting at a time. So if someone else starts, the person posting previously needs to stop.
*All members of the stated team must bump at least 10 times. Yes, I will be checking!
*The charity team with the most bumps wins
A JANUARY 2006 THANK YOU LETTER!!!!!
Second place wins 1k,
and third place wins 500 gold.
350g to the 4th place
150 g to the 5th place winner

*You may register your team anytime BEFORE February 15th, but the bumpers may begin bumping on February 12th--yes three days before the event to let the buzz build and give us the best contest we can! Remember for bumps to count you need a TICKET from Santa! heart

Post 11 - TO PARTICIPATING CHARITIES: HOW TO SET UP THE PARADE!

Here's what it should look like when it's set up:
In this thread I will post the first clue. In big orange letters it might say, "Find the Apple in ABC Charity." So ticket holders will go to the ABC Charity and find an apple. (They'll note that the first charity in the parade is ABC Charity.) Near the apple will be another clue in big orange letters. It might say, "Go to the Links in the Beta Charity." So ticket holders note the first charity in the parade is ABC Charity and the second one is Beta Charity. Then they go to Beta Charity and find the Links post, where they find the next big orange clue to the next charity. For this to work, ABC Charity had to PM me their clue to the apple. And Beta Charity had to PM me their clue to the Links post. Then I PM'd Beta Charity's clue to ABC Charity, and they posted it by their apple. I'm still not sure this makes sense, but we'll keep working on it until we get it, because I think it will be fun.

* Your charity's clue must be submitted to THE Santa Claus via PM no later than February 11th so I have time to set up the Parade. Please make sure the name of your charity (as it appears in THE List of Charities) is included in your clue. Also, the clue should lead to a post on the first page of your charity.

EXAMPLE: "See Santa's Workshop in the Every Day is Christmas Charity for what's next."

* The clue I send you must be posted no later than February 13th so that when the fun begins the 15th everything is in place. If the charity that your clue leads to does not post their clue in time, I will have to eliminate them and adjust your clue accordingly, so please stay flexible on the 14th.

Any questions, please PM me! Thanks!
