Intro + Posting Rewards
HAPPY PLAYER APPRECIATION MONTH ~
We are approaching our one-year anniversary, and we (the staff) had been wanting to do something like this for a while, so we figured it was high time we got a nice little month-long player appreciation event going. The month of August will be our annual player appreciation month (with a little bit of staff appreciation thrown in there)- we hope you enjoy what we have planned for you guys!
◒ Player IC Posts
For each in-character post that you make during the month of August, you will earn 1/2 of a participation point (PP). So, for every two in-character posts that you make, you will be able to add 1 PP to your PP tracking post! The PP will officially be handed out at the end of the month- in the meantime, please post in this thread to keep track of how many IC posts you make throughout the month. At the end of the month, the admins will go through to double-check the posts and award the PP.
(Admins & Mods do not earn PP, so, sorry my friends, we do not qualify for this. Temps, however, can still earn PP.)
◒ Staff Mod Posts
For every mod post that staff make during the month of August, we will get one "ticket" for a raffle that will be done at the end of the month. Thread closing posts do count; official OOC posts (like this one) do not count; admin posts in character indexes do not count. At the end of the month, four "tickets" will be RNG'd. Winners will get a TM of choice; however if one person wins multiple times, all consecutive prizes will be changed to Love Balls so that one person doesn't get a bunch of TMs if the RNG decides they love them. We should also keep track of our posts in this thread.
(Temps can participate in this.)

A couple cheesier events with small randomized rewards, this is a great way to both reminisce on the adventures of some of our older, active characters as well as laugh about, discuss, compare, and so forth the quirks of our characters. Look for the threads in the Member Chat forum to join the discussion and to nominate your character for one or more of the titles! There are a lot of them, so I think that every character could potentially win at least one!
The player has to nominate their own character- this ensures that only active players and characters are winning the rewards, and we're not just throwing prizes at characters who may or may not ever return to appreciate and use the prize. Your characters have to have been approved in order to be eligible, but they don't have to be finished with their starter yet.
We might add some questions later on if these are all answered really quickly, so that we can keep the discussions going and prizes flowing! If you have some suggestions for possible questions, you can PM them to me and I might use some of them if we end up needing more.
◒ Who's Best?
These are questions styled like, "Who has the most ___?" This is aimed to reward our long-standing players and characters that have participated in many things. There can be multiple winners if there are ties for certain titles. The prizes will be given out at the end of the month. HERE is the link to the thread where you can read the titles up for grabs, nominate your characters, and discuss!
◒ Most Likely To...
These are titles that anyone can win, really, from the newest to the oldest, because they are mostly based around personalities! These will likely take a lot of discussion and voting from many different people, because these are not black/white yes/no questions like the "Who's Best?" questions are. I am willing to accept two-way ties, but no more than that, so for many of these there might be hearty debate! Keep things friendly or you and all of your characters will be banned from winning anything. Prizes will be given out at the end of the month. HERE is the link to the thread where you can nominate your characters and discuss/debate the winners!

◒ Plan Future Quests!
Want to be entered into a raffle to win a TM of choice, evolution item of choice, or held item of choice (except, no EXP held items)? Of course you do, because we all love goodies.
As you've likely surmised already, to be entered in to the raffle, you have to craft a quest suggestion for us! We would like to have more quests available for your characters to participate in, but we're running dry on ideas for them, so... help us, help you.
There are just a few little guidelines and suggestions that need to be mentioned. First off, you can submit up to five quests. A mere couple of sentences will not suffice as a viable suggestion- each quest suggestion must actually be well thought out, having AT LEAST one plump, full, delicious paragraph describing the quest. More than that is preferable, however. Three or even four paragraphs is ideal. You can suggest restrictions or rewards for the quest, if you like, but that is not required. Also, we (the staff) reserve the right to edit and tweak your quest suggestions.
Post all quest suggestions in THIS THREAD, please!
At the end of the month, four "tickets" will be RNG'd to determine the winners. You will only be able to win once!

Rewards - Terrene Yearbook
Fresh off the press, Terrene's first yearbook! Funny photos, serious photos, and a lot of memories to look back on during Terrene's first year as a site. It was great to see everyone voting and discussing who won what titles, and who would most likely do some of the best and most hilarious things in the new world. Let's take a look at the victors!
◒ Who's Best?
Shae! You win a Fluffy Tail!
2. Who has the most Pokemon in their team?
3. Who has visited the most areas in Terrene?
4. Who has completed the most topics?
5. Who has the most enemies?
6. Who has the most friends?
7. Who has met the most player characters?
8. Who has completed the most socials?
9. Who has completed the most devs?
10. Who has completed the most quests?
11. Who has the Pokemon with the highest loyalty?
12. Who is the most literally and actually insane?
13. Who has the least amount of money?

18. Who has killed the most Pokemon?

c. Who is most likely to visit every single area on Terrene?
d. Who is most likely to be a homebody and never leave their starting city?

f. Who is most likely to hit on every single character they come across?
g. Who is most likely to become Terrene's Ebeneezer Scrooge?
h. Who is most likely to catch a hundred Pokemon and (re)invent the circus, bearded lady included?
i. Who is most likely to die the lamest death (and what would it be)?
j. Who is most likely to have to fake their death (and why)?
k. Who is most likely to get married, have children, and live the stereotypical happily ever after?
l. Who is most likely to catch the first Dragon?
m. Who is most likely to get slapped right across their face, and totally deserve it?
n. Who is most likely to accidentally kill their friend by telling a joke so hilarious that their friend couldn't stop laughing and suffocated?
o. Alternatively, who is most likely to accidentally kill their friend by telling a pun so terrible (read: amazing) that their brain imploded?
p. Who is the most likely to be Terrene's Beyonce?
q. Who is the most likely to be the Luigi to someone else's Mario (ie, the underrated sidekick and never the hero)?
r. Who is the most likely to star in a dev thread that will be so emotional it will make everyone cry?
s. Who are the most likely to get together and stay together? (Either romantically or BFFs, obviously there are two winners for this question.)
Congratulations to all the winners!!

Rewards - Quest Contribution
Everybody loves having quests to complete, and your efforts in helping up drum up more is the best. We appreciate all the suggested quests you all submitted - in fact, a lot of them are already in use. As promised, we will be drawing 4 raffle tickets, with each player only winning once.
HOLD THE PHONES! It seems that the numbers came back - Since only 4 players submitted quest suggestions, that means you ALL GET PRIZES! Kira, Desk Lamp, Rixie, and Chaos, you all get a TM of choice, evolution item of choice, OR held item of choice (except, no EXP held items). Please post in the MOD REQUEST to claim your reward!
