guys. hey guys. so we have a few more announcements regarding GSW:

Color:
2013 color is red!
Explanation: 2003.. 2013.. it matches up, and we have to repeat at some point, otherwise it gets too crazy going into different shades of colors and such.

Contests: Actually.. does anyone have any ideas for a good contest? We won't be doing Rainbow contest, and we're trying to find ideas that don't involve spamming the main GSW thread too much (i wasn't there for the first GSW but looking at the pages the bump contest was insane)

Dates: so when is GSW happening? July 7th - July 13th. get hyped!

Schedule: we usually have people that're like "s**t, I missed screenies!" so we came up with this schedule (still up for debate, what do you guys think?)

(times are in eastern zone)

July 6th: 11:30PM Gathering for opening screenies (In Friendchat)
July 7th: 12AM Opening Ceremony/Screenies (In FriendChat)
12PM, 3PM, 6PM, 9PM, screenies
July 8-12th: 12AM Screenies + Avvie Contest Winners announcement (On Days where it applies)
12PM, 3PM, 6PM, 9PM, screenies
July 13th: 12AM, 12PM, 3PM, 6PM, 9PM Screenies
11:30PM Closing Ceremonies Gathering/Screenies (In Cow Base, FriendChat will expire around this time)
July 14th: 12AM: Overall Winner + Class Winners Announcements + Screenies (In Cow Base if still open)

i know i know, it might seem like too much, but this isn't a "dude you need to make it to every screeny holding", but more of a "oh hey, you can't make it to one? it's cool bro, just come to the next one"

Themes/Thread: themes will be announced early june (for sure the first week) and the thread will be open at the same time

FAQ: can anyone think of commonly asked questions during GSW? i'm adding more to the FAQ section, some questions I already have are:
1. about colors/sashes
2. when screenshots take place (will have schedule)
3. what timezone are we in (all times are eastern)
4. when does a day start/end

I don't know how much I'll be participating this year?
It overlaps my birthday [10th] and I might be going to do something that day. Possibly the weekend after. Amusement paaaark
And I can't do anything at midnight during the week or anything during weekdays because I still have to work over the summer.
Especially if it's EST or something, that's 1am for me.
Edit// Yeah, 1am for me.

But for contests, I assume avatar contests and "most spirited/helpful/whatever" will still be around?User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.

also the midnight thing is like a tradition, it's just kinda spelled out now for people to know about lol

BAH eastern time! If I have a closing shift at work any of those days, I'm in trouble. The latest is the midnight screenies, which is 9 pm for west coasters.

Yay for Central time, I guess. o.o Then again, I have to be at work at 8 AM according to my newest hiring information today. So I probably won't be able to do much at night, either.

Meh meh, Calculus 3 is sooooo tiring! sweatdrop

Oh wait, I totally lied.
12a EST is 11p CST.
What even are time zones.
I may be able to partake in the traditions then.

I'm really not feeling the excitement though?

i have a fairy by my side
So, I'm catching up on season eight of Supernatural and omg the LARP episode is great. I mean, besides Felicia Day being awesome as per usual, I love that they didn't just make fun of LARPing like other shows do when they have an episode featuring it. I mean, yeah, they had moments that were like "Wow, these people are dorky", but they also went into the escapism and fun of roleplaying. Plus, Dean was totally into it! xD He loves dressing up.

Personally, I only play pen and paper rpgs. But, live-action role-playing looks like it'd be fun! I'm so self-conscious I'd probably feel silly, though. <u <;;


still have to finish season seven :/
