Winter Ball 2019: The most wonderful time of the year...

Post by CitrusGender » #528443

[center]It's beginning to look a lot like Robustmas
Everywhere you go
Take a look at that mime and clown, they're griefing once again
With horns and toolboxes that glow[/center][/i][/color]


Hello! I'm happy to announce that I we will be continuing the honored tradition with the 3rd official /tg/ Winter ball! We've come such a far way since we did the original one, I'm so happy to see that the event has garnered such a wide following and I'm hopeful we can do the same this year!

What is the Winter Ball
The Ball Roleplay oriented event where people get together to have some fun and actually enjoy being in the presence of other people. It's a cool place where lots of fun spontaneous conversation happens. They often have extremely beautiful maps made by our wonderful mapper team that you're encouraged to explore. Players are allowed (but not required!) to ask people out on a date to the ball but don't feel bad if you come up alone! It's a wonderful experience and I recommend everyone to try it out!

When will it be?
The ball is expected to be the 28th of December, 4:00 PM EST, but this is tentative. I've started to work full-time now, but I want to make sure we get it perfect this year!

Where will it be?
This is tentative, but it will likely be on the EVENT HALL SERVER. It's been held there for the past few balls so I'm thinking it should be okay again for this year.

What is expected when I attend?
Nobody is going to be a traitor during the ball. If you murder people, expect to get banned. The ball originally was supposed to take place outside of a round, but this will be its own thing. So if you connect at that time, the only thing that will be going on in the server is just the ball.

How can I help out?
These events come from the community and it's the community that makes these events all the better. I am looking for a few things in particular:

!Mappers for the Ball!
We had a ton of success last time with the tool boxing event with mapping and I want to do it again. If you have any experience in mapping or you're interested in drawing out extensive map ideas, please contact me directly at the /tg/ discord at @CitrusGender⁽ʷᵃᵗᶜʰ ᵘʳˢᵉᶫᶠ ᵈᵘᵈᵉ⁾#0366. If you contribute, you'll get a fancy rank for the duration of the event and access to our mapping channel for planning. Please just note that we're on a bit of a timeline.

Dedicated admins during the ball
We need around 5 admins (sorry players) to only take ahelps and probably forgo spawning in during the ball. It's extremely chaotic, we had 100 ahelps last time during the last ball and about the same during the toolboxing event. It's safe to say that our admins are some of the most valuable assets during these events and having dedicated admins to cover the event are a godsend.

Security during the ball
If you're a player with a good note history, feel free to ask any of our admins to fit you out in security gear for the duration of the event. We'd appreciate people who maintain order during the ball and it helped a lot last time.

The map still needs to be made, I mean it could possibly be made on the 22nd but I would need to have all hands on deck when it comes to making the map. Though, I can't imagine that it would be that much of a dealbreaker and I'd think the extra time would lead to a much better map and experience.

good morning,

my name is bobbahbrown and i am a player on tgstation. i just wanted to help lessen the survivor bias that my friend citrusgender is having to deal with by saying i have no problem with the date of the ball. in fact, i foresee no issues in my ability to attend the ball given its current date schedule. most people won't post this kind of message, so remember to take non-able-to-attend-ees with a grain of salt please my friend citrus as i told you yesterday.

thank you for reading this message, and i hope you are having a great weekend.

all the best,
bobbahbrown

Also in other news, someone offered to run a table top game for the ball called Blades In The Dark. Supposedly it has a cool criminal setting.

Obviously this has been all mostly put together thanks to Citrus. But I'd like to put it forward for next year that we can vote on a date perhaps?
As I'd personally really like to do this event but the 28th is basically not possible for me. Not that a vote would necessarily mean its a date I can do but it might mean a larger percentage can? Guess thats what a vote would show!
Whatever

Big announcement!

We'll be doing a talent show for this ball! You're all invited to show off some talent that you might have during the Winter Ball.

Everyone will get 2 minutes (or more if requested) to show off their special talent. You can specify in the google doc if you'd like to add additional items (else you spawn with none.) Additionally, if you would like to spawn in with an outfit of your choice (other than a clown) please specify the outfit in the google doc.

Mappers are also encouraged to come up with maps during the ball by making 15x8 to show off something spectacular that you'd like to show everyone.

Signup here: https://forms.gle/VbG1baJehhsYqPm8A (joke responses will be discarded)
Feel free to DM me on discord if you have any questions.
