Is EGD Happening This Year?
« on: February 10, 2019, 08:30 am »
Posting this here because I doubt anyone will see it in game sharing. Just wondering because I haven't heard any mention of anything about it yet and it's coming to that time when we should probably start thinking about it if it's going to happen. Would be nice to have what could possibly be one last EGD

If it happens, I'd love to participate, whether that be as a judge or as a participant. We should definitely try and make something happen. :)

I'm sure if we did do one this year, a couple of people will hopefully decide to make a game for the occasion, I can't see myself making one unless I was entering it into egd.

Yeah, I feel like there are people who don't really makes games anymore but they still do when EGD comes around. I imagine it would also have some hype around the fact it could possibly be the last one too.

Idk if anyone is running it or not yet. If not I'd like to put my name forward but as I've run it before I'm happy for someone else who hasn't done it before to take it. I would at least like to judge though

I haven't hosted it before, however it has been a very long time since I've even seen an Epic Game Drop considering how long I was off the forum. I'm interested but also may not be the best choice, so we'll see. The only thing I don't want is for my game to have the lower featuring standards if I participate.

No offense, but isn't it all editors? I would make a game, because I started on my egd game a year ago

As far as I know, anyone can run it. I'm almost certain I've seen it run by non-editors at some point in the past. If it does happen to be all editors, however, I'll just participate and make a game instead. :)

Has meta ran it yet? I honestly think he would be the best choice, or lordeldar, because they have experience, and care about the Ms, and are editors

I disagree with Meta, he is too inactive. This is also evident because Meta no longer runs the editor recruitment due to his inactivity and the process going so slow.

So lordeldar or any non-Editor could run the EGD instead?

He isn't inactive, plus he's been wanting to get EGD for a while.

Just because Peppered is slower than Meta doesn't validate your point. Meta was still slow with it. I wouldn't be surprised to see the moderator recruitment get taken over either. We need someone who checks the forums frequently and is capable of keeping up with EGD.

Meta is. He worked hard for the recruitment in the past, and sometimes it's not your fault if your busy. If you read the thread he said he was sleeping three hours a day just for exams, and guess what? He still kept up with recruitment

Just going to point out I know why Meta lost the editor recruitment and it's not because of inactivity. I'm not going to say why as I don't think it's been publicly said yet and idk if people want me to reveal it but inactivity isn't the reason.

I still think he should run egd, recruitment and egd are different things, that's like losing your editor badge just because u falsley banned some one as a mod

I know it's not his fault, but if that was his situation and he was busy, maybe he shouldn't have stepped up knowing he had those exams.

Apologies, then, but I still think he's too inactive to run something such as EGD.

Exams are temporary, they don't last your whole life, they last like a week

I can run EGD, although I've forgotten how it usually runs so I'd have to see some archived threads.

To answer some questions, Meta was NOT discharged for inactivity, and none-Editors CAN run EGD.

I mean if anyone wants to mod recruitment to be taken over I could help with that. But I don’t know if it will, Peppered has a good system going I think.

Peppered's system is fine, she's just way too inactive and not very involved with it. Sean had to take it into his own hands to initiate voting. I would like to run the recruitment again one day in the future too. 8)

In what ways was I slow with my system?

You should probably be on the forums a bit longer before you run it again since you lost the position for abusing powers previously.

You weren't online much and I'm pretty sure the tests took a while, but as Ethan said that's probably down to the exams you had and I apologised for my mistake.

You should probably be on the forums a bit longer before you run it again since you lost the position for abusing powers previously.

I know, I didn't mean in the near future but rather the forseeable one. To even earn the moderator role back at all would be a huge second chance. :)
