The main thread is now open! Go there!

Welcome to The Daffodil Movement pre-game show! This thread is where all of the organizing and other pre-event stuff goes on.

If you're new to the event, TDM is a cancer awareness/support movement that takes place during April every year (since 2006!) This is my fourth year organizing the event.

TDM started off small, with the aim of it being to get as many Gaians as possible to equip a daffodil bouquet all April. Now in addition to that, we get together into teams (think of like at a cancer relay) and have fun events while showing some love to anyone that has been hurt by this disease, whether directly or indirectly.

This thread was recently used to find Captains for teams, and now it will be used to have a little interest while we're waiting for the event to begin. There is also a fundraiser in the latter half of the front page.

So, check out what's going on, and have fun!^^ If you're thinking about joining a team this year, there will be plenty of Team Captains hanging out in the thread that you can chat with and see what team they're managing and what kind of things they're going to be doing with it. Undoubtedly, they will be delighted if you want to join their team.

Pre-Game Contests

Win a Nartian!
User Image
Here's your chance to win the most groovetastic, daffodilly item, in time to wear for TDM!

To put your name into the hat, just post in this thread saying you want to enter the drawing. I'll put your name on here. When the time comes, I'll do a random number draw and if your number is picked, you get the Nartian.

You may only enter once, but it doesn't cost anything to enter. However, winners will be announced in the thread and no one is going to go hunt you down if you win. So it is in your better interest to stick around. Drawing will be held at the end of March or when we get a good number of entries.

Page Contest!

The person to post on every 10th page will win 5k. Also, guys, you don't have to ask to be in this one. xD And, bumping to get the the page is, I don't know, sort of unfair. If it becomes a rule, and not the exception, the contest will be extended to every 20 pages. Bumps in the thread are appreciated, but if you come in right at the page, bump until it gets there, and them promptly leave- well, it's pretty obvious you were not bumping out of your love for TDM.

Event Fundraiser~~ heart

We're doing an item exchange as one of the fundraisers for the event. The idea is that you start with a small item, and trade up bit by bit until you end up with something pretty big.

We'll be starting with a daffodil. wink

If you'd like to trade, send a trade labeled "Exchange" with the item you want to trade to The Daffodil Movement, the mule.

Meet The Staff

TDM has team captains, but there are a couple of other staff members you may be interested in knowing about.

MoonDwarf: TDM's second-in-command. There are a lot of people that hold the VC position in the guild, but she is the true VC in terms of what she does for the Movement. Moonie can make any decision for the guild she feels necessary, and she also has access to the mule.

Keynir: Aside from being Captain of Team Lymphoma, Key is also someone who has access to the mule, sort of as a back-up. He is also the only current member of our Advertising Staff. He also handles various miscellanies like beta reading threads before they go live. He's sort of like the do-everything guy. xD

Arashi Erina: Moderator of the Events forum of the guild. Arashi makes sure everything on the events board is running smoothly. It's her job to add/remove events and make sure people are filling out the app properly. She also answers any questions about the forum. She has my number so she can text me if I'm offline and she isn't sure of the answer to something.

Captain positions filled; will not be re-opened unless someone drops out. There are still some Ad Staff positions.

During the event, 11 cancer teams will compete with one another to win a real-life donation to support the specific type of cancer they're representing, courtesy of yours truly. (Not as grand as it sounds- I'm in college and very poor.) The Team Captains are the leaders of those teams. Their job is to manage the team's HQ, which is a thread just for them in the guild.

The tentative decision for now is that all Team Captains will have Vice Captain status in the guild. (not to be confusing. xD) That is so that they can send out their own guild announcements, which doesn't seem to be a feature yet available to places lower than VC.
