Hey guys, this competition is supposed to be a fun interactive event for EoFF. While we appreciate that people are getting really involved, our intentions for this competition was never to cause people to get too invested, too obsessed, or too hurt over it.

So take a deep breath. Relax.

Have fun with the challenges, do your best, but if it doesn't work out please don't take it personally.

If you get cut, hopefully you'll have fun reading the confessionals and cheering other people on. Basically, you guys, don't stress!

I can't say I wouldn't be pretty sad if I was cut, but I wouldn't let it hinder my posting here. Just because you don't have an admin or CK or staff title by your name doesn't mean you can't help out. :D

To be fair to those that are taking this too seriously, you're dangling a <b>very</b> large carrot in front of them.

But Miriel Tyra, you snap at girls who just laugh when they get kicked off of the competition! They don't know where you come from! :jess:

Hey I'm just here to have fun. If I don't get the job, someone more qualified probably did, and it's for the betterment of the site. If I do get it, yay.

I would've thought taking stuff like this too seriously wouldn't be mod material anyway.

If you're going to give us a confessional we have to fill out regularly and then post the results in strange "brackets" of sorts, then expect us to freak the fudge out!

I am sure most people came into this contest without much hope of winning, but then all this, "everyone has a chance of winning, just do your best guys" is what got there hopes up.

For shame staff... for shame.

Then I'll be happy! HAPPY I SAY!

I'll be so happy that I'll put a thing in my sig that says "I survived to round <insert number here> in the CK trials! I'M A WINNER!"

We all know it is at least slightly rigged towards the people that they believe could actually make it. Just read my confessional, I explain it all in there. Oh wait...

As well we all should. Just not to seriously. We have to keep a happy attitude about it because Miriel said no sadness.

Anyways, while I will take this seriously while competing, until I lose(if I do, big IF:p ), and then I will cheer my favorites on. Again, see confessional. Oh wait...

Isn't this just common sense for being a good sport?

Yes, which begs the question....why do we need this thread? But we all know the answer, and I'm not going to say it.

You can't kill what's already dead...Shame on you for filling them with false hopes, Rotoshop.

This is the first time I ever did something like this and it is kinda exciting. I don't really care if I get cut off (If I do make it to the finals then that's just a plus but personally, being one of the trainees already is an honor), maybe it ain't my time to be a CK yet. I will try again, nothing could dampen my spirit.

KentaRawr!
04-05-2008, 05:07 PM
Well, I guess I'm taking it a bit too seriously. I've barely posted in any other section at all since this started, and when I look at the other people in the competition, it looks more like the fun of the Ciddies than anything, and yet it feels entirely different to me.

Captain Maxx Power

Also on another note we've been explicitly told we're being monitored CONSTANTLY, especially in our confessionals. It wasn't said outright, but it was hinted that if we didn't stay active in the confessional is would hamper our chances. So yeah, if we're freaking out that's why.

Randgris
04-05-2008, 05:55 PM
We need to update our confessionals? I thought it was for a one time thing?

Goldenboko
04-05-2008, 05:56 PM
I agree with Maxx, seriously mixed messages. Don't freak out, just a game, don't be offended, but... EVERYTHING YOU DO INCRIMINATES YOU AH!

Rye
04-05-2008, 06:43 PM
Yeah, they want you to update them. I update mine about once a day. Not that much. xD

You're obviously doing fine if you're still in the game. Don't start spazzing and second guessing everything you do now.

Bahamut2000X
04-05-2008, 11:19 PM
I agree with PG. If your this far then your doing something right and have shown to have some level of maturity, activity, and the other CK qualities they are looking for.

Really I wouldn't spaz too much. Just check up a few times a day and go on with your life if you need to.

Lucky me I have no social life so I can stay on all day. :monster:

I hope that doesn't give you bonus points.

Do you think I would be so sneaky as to do something like that for bonus points?

I'm lucky enough that this started on my Spring break. And right after I got back from my traditional road trip. So I can just sit around for the next couple days and be here for it. At least until my evening plans kick in.

But once school starts I will be back to mornings before school and evenings.

If anyone doesn't know how to cope with the stress I can always quote from my stress report on "How to Cope With Stress". :) If you need to talk I'm always happy to talk to eoffers. ^__^
