View Full Version : 2007 Eyes on Final Fantasy Elections [Take 2]



Rad Zak

Yo yo gangster flow. Times are changing here at Eyes on Final Fantasy. Like the old saying goes, out with the old, in with the new. Election time is rolling round again, and Election Booth? He is the old. He is just...that FACE. Us? We are just... that ace. We are also Rad Zak.
<o>
*hails Bruckner*
<o>
The grass is always greener over the fence past 6 neighbours, and we are that 7th neighbour. We're here to pick the Eyes on Final Fantasy Elections up off the ground and forward into the glorious new future. whatyagonnado. This fire was either accidental or started on purpose.
<o>
*Sits and stares and sits and stares*
<o>
GODDAMMIT PROTO! Will you marry me? UNLEASH THE FURY!! *copy paste DUH!
<o>
Don't trust any of them. We are the only sane ones here.
<o>
(only a knowman can save us now.)
<o>
The Setup
You all know how the Elections work, right? Well, we’re going to spell out the rules anyway. Firstly, there’s the issue of how the forum will be divided up.
<o>
This year, we’re separating it into five sections: General, Staff and Reference, Nerds in Paradise, The Quickening and The Smell of Fear, and The World is Square...and Enix. Each party may assign between 3 and 6 members to each section of EoFF. This means that to be an official party, you must have at LEAST 3 members for each section—however, if you find yourself in a bind, you may choose to cover only three or four forum sections, rather than all five sections. Still, you must keep at least 3 members in each “group.” This means the minimum number of members an official party can contain is 9, while the maximum number of members a party is allowed to contain is 30. Now, for the Parties.
<o>
The Parties
By the end of the BURNING RUBBER PERIOD (see below) your party must submit to us, via PM, a list with the following:
Your party leader
Your official party signature/banner
Your official party mascot
Your official party slogan
A finalized list of your members and the sections they will represent, styled like so:
General – DarthVader, Chodaboy, Mr. Deeds, Levian
Staff and Reference – TheCandyMan, GuyFawkes, Superman
And so on and so forth.
<o>
This year, things will be split up a bit differently. Here’s a lowdown of how things are going to be run.
<o>
The Time Frame
I bet you were thinking about ignoring the rest of this thread and setting up an Election Party thread as fast as your little fingers could work, huh? Well, hold off! Things aren’t going to work quite like they always have. Right now, we’re in the beginnings of the HYPE PERIOD. The HYPE PERIOD will consist of this weekend, and will officially end on Wednesday, 12 am UK time.
THE HYPE PERIOD (Duration: 3 days)
What is the HYPE PERIOD, you ask? Well, between now and Wednesday, feel free to blabber about the Elections in this thread, with your friends, in the shower—we don’t care! You have this time to think over whether or not you’d like to form your own party. Feel out your friends (or feel ‘em up, if they’re that kind of friend) and see if they’d be interested in joining your nebulous party. Maybe think up a slogan and a party banner—whatever you want! This is the preparation period for all of you to get ready for the Elections, and will hopefully guarantee everyone starts out on fairly even footing.
THE BURNING RUBBER PERIOD (Duration: 5 days)
As of midnight UK time on Wednesday, April 25th, The HYPE PERIOD is over and the BURNING RUBBER PERIOD has begun. At this time, you are free to create a thread for your party and let the spamming planning begin. By the end of the BURNING RUBBER PERIOD, you must have officially submitted your party to us. This is the beginning of the race, and you can read up a bit more on what kind of stuff you need to have done in the BURNING RUBBER PERIOD in The Setup.
THE RAVING KIWI PERIOD (Duration: 5 days)
Once the BURNING RUBBER PERIOD has come to a close, we’ll confirm the parties participating in the 2007 Eyes on Final Fantasy Elections. Then the tasks will be sent out. You will have five days to complete your group tasks and have them submitted to Rad Zak, at which time a new thread will be compiled with all of your submissions, which leads us to the final period…
THE HOME STRETCH (Duration: 5 days)
At long last, we’ve reached the end of this cursed event. Well, they’re just beginning now, but I’m sure that’s how we’ll feel in a couple weeks! During THE HOME STRETCH, all of your fantastic submissions will be displayed for the world to see, and the voting stage has officially begun. You’ll PM your votes to Rad Zak and then simply await the results. Or you could be an activist—to ensure the success of the Elections, bug your friends and make sure they all vote.
<o>
And that’s it! That’s the schedule. Note that we may extend the time frame of these stages by a day or two here and there to insure things run smoothly. Also, while you guys are busy working on your submissions or your voting or whatever, feel free to PM us asking for more time if you need it. As things stand, we feel this will work out about as well as that time Kramer made those hilarious black jokes drove to Michigan to make a fortune recycling bottles. Now, get ready for Wednesday and start posting excitedly ASAP!

Also, be cool and pretend we didn't post this two days ago and respond to this thread all over again.</o></o></o></o></o></o></o></o></o></o></o></o>

Due to the server change business, the end of the HYPE PERIOD <s>has been pushed back one day, in case you guys didn't notice. So don't be makin' no parties until Tuesday night at midnight (technically Wednesday) UK time, okay?</s> Righteous.

Edit: So like, that got messed up a bit by my other personality. You don't want to listen to him, he's been known to frequent those seedy bars. The ones with the poles. You know what I mean. His mind isn't on the job.

But yeah, the Hype period ends when originally planned still, midnight on Wednesday GMT time. So wednesday evening for the American chappies. We'll let you know regardless, awright? Tubular.

I hope people don't mind that I labelled all threads to do with elections with "Elections: " - it was just getting really confusing as to which threads I want to read for casual posting and which would just end up being another party thread.

EDIT: This should also make it easy to not miss anything when we archive the threads later on. =]

I thought it'd be prudent to give you dudes a quick synopsis of the party situation as it stands right now, not even a full 24 hours into the BURNING RUBBER PERIOD.

Already taking a lead in membership are The MsPaint Party (http://forums.eyesonff.com/showthread.php?t=104531) led by Psychotic (which is already maxed out at 30 members) and The Badass Mothersmurfers Party (http://forums.eyesonff.com/showthread.php?t=104533) led by the sexy fire_of_avalon. Of course, having more members doesn't necessarily mean a thing, and we have quite a few more interesting parties in the race, as well: The Furry Party (http://forums.eyesonff.com/showthread.php?t=104532), The Brotherhood of NOD (http://forums.eyesonff.com/showthread.php?t=104534), The Hero Party (http://forums.eyesonff.com/showthread.php?t=104538), The Chocobo Lovers Party (http://forums.eyesonff.com/showthread.php?t=104554), The BAoTW Party (http://forums.eyesonff.com/showthread.php?t=104539), and, of course, the Cupermoowaowa (The new Pirate Red Mages!) (http://forums.eyesonff.com/showthread.php?t=104558).

With several days left for the parties to form, and for new ones to pop up (Diango's naughty party sems to be MIA) we'd like to encourage you guys to take a look at all of them and join the one that best reflects your own moral philosphy. Or something. Maybe just look at their cool pictures.

Elections should be fair, right? as the have changed their name ( and plan to do again in the future) and have changed the accual name of the thread they post in, they have an unfair advantage/ability through that! and what other powers does phycotic have that the rest of us don't?

The Party Formerly Known as The Final Fantasy Party now wishes to be referred to as The MS Paint Party. Whatever floats their collective boats.

In the spirit of competition, the staff definitely shouldn't mess with opponent party threads, but as for changing thread titles, merging threads, etc., they're perfectly within their rights. There's no restriction on staff involvement in parties, unlike the rules have sometimes stated in the past.

EDIT: And BAoTW and the Pirate Red Mages are now one. Forgot about that bit! Rock on you united atheist pirate people.

I don't know what party some people are in because they're being creeps and not changing their signatures.But some of those people could have valid reasons. I was about to change my signature, but I had a cake in one hand at the time. I took a bite out of it, an it was supposed to have buttercream in it, but there was virtually none in there! So then I was concerned that all my cakes could be substandard, an I wanted to check. I had a milkshake at the time, an I thought I better drink that before looking at my cakes, incase it went warm or something. So then I had to check my cakes. They were all ok, so it was safe to continue with my sig business. But then someone called me with news that was not to my liking. I decided that changing my signature was obviously a risky business, an I kept the Seals.

Basically all you have to do is come up with a good idea, a name and maybe a cool banner. When you have all that, make a thread. Just look at what everyone else did. However, you'll need 9 party members to compete in the next round and there's only one day left, so I doubt there will be many partyless people around here. But feel free to try your luck. :mog:

Just to give you guys a heads up, today is the final day of the BURNING RUBBER PERIOD. This means we're on the verge of really getting these Elections moving, so you guys all need to submit the official PM to me by the end of the day. Remember, you must have at least 9 members to be an official party, with at least three members covering at least three of the five sections.

Cowabunga, dudes. Get us those PMs! (http://forums.eyesonff.com/private.php?do=newpm&u=28178)

We extended the BURNING RUBBER period by a day so as to get in every party that wanted to officially join the Elections, and that ended last night. Expect a new thread soon, and get ready to start the meat of the competition.
