Sorry. My foggy brain last night was only recalling the definition of inanimate object. No challenge to Slytherin's slaughter was intended.
Hey, no worries. I remember being bitter two games ago when Hufflepuff's Unlimiteds (how Voldemort will NOT die) contained a lot of repetitive stuff (like "he will be poisoned by (insert a chemical element here)"). Stupid me, really.
Nat's task didn't say "inanimate object" specifically, so we sort of took a bit of liberty with the interpretation, I guess... Anything to win the game, in the true Slytherin fashion. And God knows we deserve it, after so many years...
No bitterness here. I'm very proud of my house. We did well with the members who were able to participate. This was the first time I felt like I really contributed to my house's total.
That's the spirit! We, too, agreed that even if we don't win, we still did a fabulous job and are proud of it. Everyone did well.
I'm super proud of everyone. For the first time I can remember, it didn't come down to a battle between two houses with one or two lagging very far behind. You guys all did a ton of stuff.
Here I thought you were announcing final points
And thanks for hosting! That's a huge task in itself.
I thought that, too. My heart actually skipped a beat.
Ditto on the thanks to Nat. I can't even imagine hosting this - such a mammoth task, and you did it so well. Let's here it for Nat, folks!
Sorry And aww, thank you!! It was fun
Me, three (thinking it was a points update)!
I'm procrastinating on essay writing by reading through all of the tasks. This has been a phenomenal game -- everyone deserves a good round of applause, 'cause this game has been a blast!
I vote we should throw a party for Nat for tackling the challenge of counting up all the points!
Nat iz awesomesauce!
Oh yeah, GO NAT!!!
YOU ARE THE BEST!
Finale will reveal itself!
This is a long, long page
Thanks to Nat for all her hard work!
before I get banned, just want to say congrats to all who answered the questions.
I have had far to much going on, most of which came out of the blue (Deaths and Pregnancy's) just to name two!
Sorry I was no help at all, good luck to all!
Please have done well . . .
Because I was bored and feeling silly.
What can I say? Boredom results in LOLPOTTERS.
First off, I'd like to say that I'm proud of all of you for putting in all that work. And also, you're all crazy
No one requested to see score sheets, so I'm posting now. If there's something a little off, I might have taken points off, or there might have been something like music where people got full points individually for contributing to recordings, but the house only got the points once.
Miana Kenobi: 4456
So, congratulations to Slytherin! I don't think I've ever seen that many points All of your members (except Zap) get house colors for the week (you MUST stay silver on dark green). And our Head Girl and Runner-up Head Girl are both Slytherins as well! Congrats, Idri and Ant After the week is up, you'll get to keep the house colors for 72 hours (Ant) and a week (Idri). Slytherins, PM me the icon you want and I'll upload right away
As you all know, new feature! Desappearers get game banned. That means (going down the list) C1-J2 to spycoder9, see you in 24! You can register a sock and post on that
Like I said, everyone played a great game. I had an awesome time hosting (until this morning ) and I really hope everyone'll come back round around round (Maybe this summer, after we've all rested )
A couple people mentioned wanting to bring up points and how they should be changed for certain tasks, specifically fanfics. Now's the time
Oh wow... You actually counted them all in one day? I tried to at least split it up when I could so I wouldn't go insane.
PS, congrats Slytherin
I had that many points? Wow. I did almost everything the last week.
The point value on fics should definitely go up. Or the word limit should come down to something like 500, since that would scale better with what's a fifteen point task.
The other thing that should really come up is that musical task. The parodies are worth 40 points, yet somehow the musical task, which involves writing multiple parodies, is only worth 45?
ETA: ALso, WOW, Slytherin. That's all I can really say. WOW. There was a time when a HOUSE getting 8000 was unheard of.
Holy heck! Look at all our points!!
I am so proud of my wonderful team! Hugs & totally-not-inappropriate-kisses all around!
Clearly PK should be forced to wear the colors of the winning team.
Great job everyone. Especially to Jedi-Ant and Idrelle.
