- Thread Rules -


scream - Follow Gaia's ToS, obviously;

scream - Do not quote the first post, or any of the posts mentioned at the bottom of the first one;

scream - Keep quoting to a minimum, you are allowed to quote, there is nothing wrong about that, but try to quote as little as possible;

scream - Do not bump unless you are alone, there is no reason to bump if there is perfectly good company to chat right by your side;

scream - Keep conversations as clean as possible, don't fight or post anything with sexual content, its nasty, get a room;

scream - Don't advertise, if you want to, PM me to put your banner or ad in the 'Banners' section. If the ad is in your sig, it's ok.

scream - Don't beg. Although I encourage people to give to each other and be generous, I won't tolerate people coming here sobbing for gold or items;

scream - BE NICE TO EACH OTHER, I can't stress this enough, don't be mean to other Gaians, chat, be nice and don't bother people;

scream - Try to be literate please, this isn't a chat room, so you have all the time you need to type in what you want to say. No "shakespearing" required, just try to use punctuation conveniently and cut back on the abbreviations. This doesn't mean abbreviations are prohibited;

scream - Don't bring drama to the thread. It's ok if you just vent a little about a bad day you happened to have, but don't do it daily nor spend your time here complaining. If you need help, or someone to talk to, you're more than welcome to PM me, and I'll gladly listen.


scream - These rules may be changed when I see fit, I might have forgotten a rule, and I'm free to change the rules when I please;


If I or any mod spot anyone breaking these rules you'll get in serious trouble, if you break one accidentally, its okay, everyone makes mistakes, but if you persist on breaking them, you will be reported to the staff and your posts will be deleted.

Here it is everyone: The Thinker Badge!

User Image
Thinker Badge: Can't talk now-- thinking.

Getting it requires, you guessed it, thinking! Zuu Yorkers are awarded with this badge every time they submit a good idea for a contest.


To enter, send me a PM labeled "Thinker" and a description of your idea. Later you'll receive a reply with your entry's score.

The ideas will be weighed according to the following criteria:

0/10 - Feasibility of the suggestion (if it's doable or not, how easy it is to make sure someone won, etc);
0/10 - Fun (is it a fun event that everyone will enjoy? Does it envolve tiresome grinding? etc);
0/10 - Creativity (imaginitive ideas are rewarded with extra points);
0/30 - Total Score (sum of the points won in each criteria);



exclaim Rules exclaim

Submiting
arrow You may submit as much ideas as you wish, each will count as a separate entry.
arrow Only entries sent via PM are considered valid.
arrow You are allowed to suggest events based off websites and tools outside of GaiaOnline but only if they require no download or account to use.

Winning
arrow You win if you reach ~25 points. After you win, your suggestion will become public and everyone will be able to make suggestions about it. Even if the event ends up changing completely, you still won the badge. The people that helped change it after that won't get the badge.
arrow If I get the exact same suggestion from two people, and if that suggestion is picked as a winner, a random number generator will be the tie breaker.



______________________________________________________________________________



Do you like the thread? Of course you do.
Do you want a badge? Do you want to help the thread grow?
What if I tell you there's a way you can get a badge, WHILE helping the thread out?

Say hello to the PR badge:

User Image
PR Badge: Hello!

The PR badge is a easy-to-get award given to anyone who carries around our official banner for 7 days in their signature.

User Image

All you have to do is copy/paste the following code into your sig:

Large code banner - visible by everyone
[url=http://www.gaiaonline.com/forum/friends-chat/zuu-york-fear-the-void/t.44228041_1/][img]http://i246.photobucket.com/albums/gg119/Zuyu/picasioncom_b0ca29323e9a168a815c51a4e247a611.gif[/img][/url]


Shortened code banner - visible only by Gaians with some safety features off
[url=http://tinyurl.com/ZuuYork][img]http://tinyurl.com/ZuuBanner[/img][/url]



While it's prefered you use the large code, either one is fine.

Here's how you win it:

(1) question Everyday you must PM me, or a mod, with the tag "Public Relations Badge", and enabling your signature to show.
(2) exclaim On the seventh day, you'll be granted with the badge!
(3) blaugh After that you're free to remove it, since you won't lose the badge if you do.

This thread, formally known as the Y.A.C. is more than a year old, and it's been kept alive much thanks to my mods.

A long time ago, I decided I wanted to reach out to the Gaia community with something fun, and wanted to make new friends while I did it. So I created a Avatar Contest thread at the Chatterbox.

It was one of the best decisions I have ever done! I had so much fun, heck, everyone did! The problem was that, since I live in a different timezone, I could only be online with my buddies during late nights on my time, which were afternoon-ish on theirs -- of course I couldn't do this everyday, I have school to go to in the morning.

Many times the thread withered and died a little, but someone always came in to give it some love and defib. And I decided I loved the thread and the friends I have made here way too much to let it die.

So ok, I don't have enough time to update a Avatar Contest thread, the contests were closed for some time now and all we did was come inside to chat amongst ourselves... easy, let's turn it into a hangout thread and completely close the contests, and that's just what we did.

Over 700 1000 4000 pages with no spam at all! (check it out, I dare you xD) All bonding. <3
So come and post, I'm sure we'll love to have you here ^-^

As of some time ago, I decided to make small events, to spice up the things around here. They are very dependent of my free time, which, since I'm in college now, is very limiting. Still, I do my best :3 and I give badges to the winners! You can check those out in the award hall section.

Here's a gallery of the thread's art, doodles we made of each other xD
By me: [x]; [x]; [x]; [x]; [x]; [x]; [x]; [x]; [x]; [x]; [x];
By Hunter: [x]; [x]; [x];
By Oni-chan: [x]; [x]; [x]; [x];
By Requiem: [x]; [x];
By Rowdy: [x]; [x];

If you doodled us and are not posted here, please PM me with your doodle and I'll add you to the gallery! ^-^
(and please, no more "doodle" puns rofl )

ALL MODERATION IN THIS THREAD IS TEMPORARILLY SUSPENDED.

At the moment myself and Pluz are enough to keep an eye on the place. 3nodding

Being a moderator here is a temporary job. By temporary, I means it expires every six months or so.

If you were a mod before and wish to renew your position, just PM me saying so, and it will be done.

If it's the first time you're applying to become a moderator here at Zuu York you'll need to spend a few days knowing the regs and making friends around here. If you really want to help, then you can PM me about it, and we'll discuss your position.

Keep in mind that I can demote you at any time if I feel you're not fulfilling your duties properly. It has never happened before though, so lets hope it doesn't happen at all. ^^


To sum it up:
Mods that were demoted can be promoted again just by asking;
New applications need to be personally approved by me;
After someone has been approved, they gain a "Moderator" badge, and with it a free pass to return to their mod job whenever they please by request only.
