Hey friends and familiars, 'tis that time of year again when the air gets chilly and spooky feel of Halloween starts sneaking into our lives... Okay, maybe that's a tad bit dramatic, but you get the picture.
So usually we have an annual Trick or Treat. Based on the News and Announcements section we haven't had one since 2013, but I don't recall it being that long ago, so I'm hoping that it's just hiding in some other part of the forum and that we didn't skip the whole thing for two years.
Anyway, for those who don't know how this works or even for those who need a refresher, our trick or treat event is essentially a 'secret santa' type of event but set during the Halloween season. So, if you sign up, you will be put on the list of participants. Once entries have stopped, you will be messaged by yours truly with the info of who you'll be gifting this year. This event DOES require you to gift whoever it is you get, so if you're not going to be creating something to give to another member, please don't sign up. It's not fun for the other person participating to not receive their gift. This has happened in the past, so please, don't sign up if you're not going to participate the way you should.
So, in summary...
You will have until October 15th to sign up for the event. To do so, just reply to this thread letting us know you want to participate.
Between October 16th and 17th you will get a PM from me, telling you who you'll be gifting this year. DON'T TELL THE PERSON YOU GOT THAT YOU'LL BE GIFTING THEM. It's a surprise.
You have from the time you got your PM to October 31st to make your gift and post it as a reply to this thread, and finally revealing who the gift is for.
If you have any questions or concerns on how this works, feel free to ask.
And as for what gifts qualify... I mean, it's anything, really. Most people do signatures or avatars, but if you're a wordsmith you could write a short fanfic, a poem, anything like that. I remember one year FlipMode did an interactive power point presentation for a member. So it literally could BE ANYTHING you put your mind to. I believe in you, you got this!
List of Participants
Entries are now CLOSED.
You will be contacted in the near future to tell you who you'll be gifting. Keep an eye out for a PM from me.
Due date extended until November 5th due to PMs going out late.
Greetings fellow internet dwellers! It has been a while but the staff felt this announcement was needed in light of recent events
We are more than aware that drama has been kicking off again recently, due to a certain member who is now banned, and there are suspicions around someone new who joined the forum
I ask everyone please, do not just jump to conclusion about new members. Treat them with the respect and kindness you would like to receive.
On that note, if you do see a member causing drama, bullying, abusive... anything that breaks the rules of MLK DO NOT GET INVOLVED. Please use the report buttons and message a mod. It is what we are here for. Alot of the drama these last couple of days has been because people all started responding to the troll/spammer/hater. Just don't do it please
Also around this the chatbox got removed and then replaced. We are aware there are problems with it. We are going to fix it, please just have some patience. It is also worth pointing out that, yes the chatbox can be used to talk about anything.. doesn't have to be TLK related. However it is still part of MLK and therefore falls under its Universal Rules. Follow them please, and like before if you see someone breaking the rules let us know, even better take a screen shot and show us
Now some good news. With myself and Shadowfax back to work, Carl/Julie starting work, The staff have decided to expand our numbers... I wish I could say there was lengthy discussion, but I can't. There was unanimous agreement on who should join our team. Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome your new MLK Moderator:
Welcome to the team!
Guys, let's be honest. The site is showing its age, especially the FAA, which I wrote in college 7 years ago. I attempted a rewrite 4 years ago and attempted continuing it last year, but was swallowed up by either my later years in college or more recently my more-than-full-time job and side projects galore.
I need help giving MLK a fresh look and livening up the development once again. I'm posting this here because we've got to have some talent right here in MLK. It would be great to find a TLK fan who wants to help, even if you're just getting started with PHP.
Feel free to PM me for more details. I'd rather open lines of communication than spill all the details here.
