It's time to wrap up another year on the forums with a bit of craziness and hopefully a serious increase in activity! That's right, it's The Week of Randomness!!

The usual rules apply.
1. The event will run from Sunday Dec 2th - Saturday Dec 8th (US Mountain Standard Time, which is the default time setting on the forums).
2. Every single day of the week will be different. Details for each day will be posted in the schedule at least a couple days ahead of time so keep checking this post.
3. There is no need to "enter", if you post during the duration of the event you're automatically entered.
4. You will be judged each day based on how well your posts comply to that day's rules.
5. Quality of posts and number of posts will also be taken into account (the higher the quality of your posts and the more posts you make the better, assuming they follow that day's rules).
6. Each day people will be awarded first, second, and third place for that day and each of those three people will be awarded points. Whoever has the most posts at the end of the week wins. However, you will not be told who won each day until after the week is over.
7. To avoid screwing things up, the daily rules do not apply to RP posts unless specifically noted. Following the daily rules in game threads is good, but only so long as you don't break the rules of the game itself.

Schedule
Sunday the 2nd: Party on, bro! It's totally Talk Like a Drunken Frat Boy Day, so grab a beer and start chugging!
Monday the 3rd: So yesterday's theme had something to do with birthday parties for fat little boys, right? Doesn't make much sense if you ask me, but Completely Misunderstand the Post Above You Day is easy enough to figure out.
Tuesday the 4th: We may have had a horrible hurricane season combined with lots of bitter political battles and a bad economy but hey, it's not all bad. After all, today is Look on the Bright Side Day.
Wednesday the 5th: Confucious Says that today is Spout Lots of Bad Proverbs Day.
Thursday the 6th: Today is, uh, hold on, I'll think of it... Ah yes, Forget Your Lines Day.
Friday the 7th: All applaud Amazingly Awesome Alliteration (Day)
Saturday the 8th: SUPER COMBO MIX-UP DAY (On this day you can use either of the following combo themes. Note that you're allowed to switch themes between, but NOT in the middle of, posts.)
--Option 1: Talk like a drunken frat boy who can’t remember his lines and misunderstands the post above him.
--Option 2: Spout lots of alliterative bad proverbs about the bright side.


Prizes
1st Prize: Award Image, Special Blooper Reel Strip
2nd Prize: Award Image, Cameo in Winner's Blooper Reel Strip
3rd Prize: Award Image

Man... this was the worst possible time for me... I've got two final papers due on the 6th and one more on the 11th. Plus that test to study for... I probably won't be able to get my usual sprites done at all... ;_;

Sorry to hear it. Maybe next time I should ask everyone for both their first and last choice for weeks and go from there.

We were supposed to chug something yesterday, right? But what chugs? Trains I guess. And a blast was mentioned... Ah, I got it. So, I hope everyone had fun on Blow Up a Train Day. Meanwhile, the themes for Tuesday and Wednesday have been posted.

No matter what else may happen, today is the day that Thursday theme was added to the first post, and that makes it an awesome day.

It's time to announce the winners! But first, the summary...

Sunday: Talk Like a Drunken Frat Boy Day
5 Points – Poison
3 Points – Silver
2 Points – Neo

Poison, Silver, Neo, and Shauni all started out strong. Poison took the lead with her art, and Neo just managed to edge out Shauni for third.

Monday: Completely Misunderstand the Post Above You Day
5 Points – Neo
3 Points – Poison
2 Points – Silver

Poison had another great drawing, but all Neo's awesome posts allowed him to push past her for the lead.

Tuesday: Look on the Bright Side Day
5 Points – Neo & Shauni
3 Points – Poison
2 Points – Silver

Neo and Shauni both made a lot of good posts, tieing for first. Poison had another drawing and some good posts, but her low post count held her back. Silver had a couple good posts, but only a couple, leaving him in third.

Wednesday: Spout Lots of Bad Proverbs Day
5 Points – Shauni
3 Points – Silver
2 Points – Neo

Shauni won this day due to sheet post count. Meanwhile, Silver just managed to slip past Neo for second. Poison, meanwhile, got busy and didn't make much of a showing for the rest of the week.

Thursday: Forget Your Lines Day
5 Points – Neo
3 Points – Silver
2 Points – Shauni and Poison

Silver had the best posts, but Neo won the day due to number of posts. Shauni and Poison had a couple of nice posts a piece, tieing for third.

Friday: Amazingly Awesome Alliteration (Day)
5 Points – Shauni
3 Points – Neo
2 Points – Silver

Activity this day was kind of low. It basically came down to post count.

Saturday: SUPER COMBO MIX-UP DAY
5 Points – Silver
3 Points – Neo
2 Points –

Silver and Neo were the only posters on the final day (other than me). Silver got the win due to post quality and using both of the two posting styles.

Final point totals:
25 - Neo
20 - Silver
17 - Shauni
13 - Poison

It wasn't as busy as some past years, but I hope everyone had fun!

Oh man, only four of us? That's... pretty sad... oh, well. I managed to come in second despite not having much free time! I've protected my title as a super great random person!

You still have my sprite sheet from last time, right? I'll assume so, based on its inclusion in the award banner, anyway.

Only four people posted (other then Josiah) during the entire week? Dang.

And...I got fourth place...Welp, that's what happens when you get hit by an art block, and become quite lazy/busy. Good job to the winners!
