Round 3 - Part 1

30 contestants are left. Your task is to divide yourselves into 3 groups of 10. You can do this however way you see fit. Be careful on how you do this, as you will be asked to complete a group challenge once it is done. Try to use this thread to discuss and come up with your group assignments, but you may also use pms, ims, etc. After the assignments are made, each group will get its own thread to complete the rest of the challenge.

This part of the event will last for 18 hours (~10:00am Pacific time). At the end of that time, all those not in a group will be randomly assigned to one. You will not be penalized if you are not part of a group by the time this phase of the challenge is over, so please do not fret if you are not in one.

Team Fruity! :ichigo:

Heath
04-06-2008, 01:21 AM
I'm happy to join any group that wants me for this task.

Edit: Or y'know, Rye could post seconds before me and do it that way :p

Bahamut2000X
04-06-2008, 01:22 AM
Doh Rye claimed all the good ones.

But I'll have GoBo yet! So go me, how about it Gobo? Wanna team up and create the ultimate team!

Araciel
04-06-2008, 01:25 AM
Ara, PG, and the Cap'n are recruiting! Check your inboxes!

Goldenboko
04-06-2008, 01:25 AM
They're probably gonna have us see how well we'd work with other Cid's Knight, so...

I'm gonna make a list of people I think I'd work well with:

Dynast-Kid
Rase
Roto13
oddler
Flying Mullet
Bahamut2000X

EDIT: Bahamut! Yes, team now! :D

Rye
04-06-2008, 01:27 AM
By the way, if any of you I asked are interested in Team Fruity, PM me, reply to this thread, IM me, whatever. I guess it's up for first comers. I really think we'd all work really good together, because we all have something good to bring to the team. :bigsmile:

Is that a yes, Heath? I'll assume it is!

:ichigo: Team Fruity: :ichigo:

Team Fruity! :ichigo:

I swear she put that in seconds after I posted. >.>

Hey Rye maybe my team (GoBo and me) should merge with what you have of your team. That right there seems like it could be an epic group. Me and GoBo are pretty awesome just by ourselves. :cool:

Goldenboko
04-06-2008, 01:31 AM
I agree with Bahamut, I'd like to join team fruity, I think I'd work well with you guys.

Pant Leg Eater from the Bad World
04-06-2008, 01:45 AM
Baaah! Of course, this starts just as I have things to do.

PM me, and I might join your team.

But I have things to do, for now. I will be back... I hope.

EDIT: I want Roto, PG, Flying Mullet, and Rye. But it seems I won't be getting what I want today.

blackmage_nuke
04-06-2008, 01:46 AM
I dont mind going in the team that has a gap after they've decided thier members unless anyone wants to ask me. If I had a preference i guess it would be anyone who frequents the FFVI forum because thats where i am alot of the time.

If you change your mind,
I'm the first in line
Honey I'm still free
Take a chance on me

Dolentrean
04-06-2008, 01:50 AM
Alright, I will be willing to join any team, I don't know that many of you that well really, but hey, I'm still here so I must be some use.

If someone wants me in there team just send me a PM or ask me to join in this thread. I would rather be asked so I can be with people who are more serious and organized, but if not I will live with being randomly assigned.

EDIT: I am going to send out a few PM's to see if I can join some teams, but feel free to say no, I would rather be in a group who thinks I would be useful than them just having me for the hell of it.

blackmage_nuke
04-06-2008, 01:55 AM
A question!!!

So does only one or two groups get to the next round or is this judged on an individual basis even though it is done in groups?
Im assuming this is a round based on teamwork so this information might be crucial to group decision and activity.

Its ok if you dont want to reveal too much about the round though.

qwertysaur
04-06-2008, 01:59 AM
If you want me, I'll join team fruity.:ichigo:

Jess
04-06-2008, 01:59 AM
Okay, I'm in Team Fruity! :jess:

Rye
04-06-2008, 02:02 AM
To be fair, I want to give the people I invited first a chance to get back to me. It wouldn't be right to ask them first, and then just cut them out in favor of people who are asking now. If they don't get back to me in a decent amount of time, the others on the team will decide who else we want! :jess:

ljkkjlcm9
04-06-2008, 03:05 AM
I can work with anyone.

Honestly, I want to work with all the people that don't think they will win. I'm getting tired of all the same people that people are picking to win this competition. No offense to them or anything, but I think us lesser knowns have just as good a shot, and this is a good time to make a name for ourselves.

send me a PM: OR
Aim: ljkkjlcm9

so far I got Takara and I
Team Underrated represent!

7 out of 10 people have responded to be on Team Fruity. I'd recommend that all the other people I asked respond ASAP! :jess:

Linus
04-06-2008, 04:41 AM
Wow, I just woke up. This team concept sounds cool but I'm not sure what the implications are for advancement. I'll join Team Fruity because Rye is super-creative and active on les forumos.

Rye
04-06-2008, 04:46 AM
Awww, gee thanks, Linus! :jess:

Linus
04-06-2008, 04:58 AM
Also, this is the team with all the chicks.




:jokey:

Rye
04-06-2008, 05:22 AM
Anyway, I'm going to bed now. All the people I asked should PM me regarding Team Fruity. The team has 2 spots left, so you best hurry. We'll probably have our full team by morning, so we'll be ready to start.

KentaRawr!
04-06-2008, 05:38 AM
Interesting concept. It'll be odd, though. The winning team has to compete with itself.

Del Murder
04-06-2008, 05:58 AM

I will say that there is no guarantee that the 'winning' team will not have any people cut. However, they will probably have the least amount of people cut.

There will not be a 'losing' team that gets cut entirely.

ljkkjlcm9
04-06-2008, 06:02 AM
makes perfect sense to me

You're gonna have to work well with others. Obviously the winning team had a lot of people that could communicate and work in a group effectively, so they'd have the least amount cut. I'm enjoying seeing this little "contest," if you want to call it that, progresses, and look forward to the future rounds. Hopefully I can make it through this one too!

It seems that Rye is having no trouble finding members for her team, so I'll go for the second person to send me a PM asking me; Doltrean.

EDIT: He decided not to wait for me so I guess I'm on Rye's team if she'll still have me. xD

Dolentrean
04-06-2008, 06:36 AM
Sorry Roto >.< Like I said in my other PM, I expected you to go to Rye's team right away.

Roto13
04-06-2008, 06:42 AM
blackmage_nuke PMed me asking if he could be on my team. I don't have a team yet. :P

I thought you were on Dolentreans team until you edited your post

edczxcvbnm
04-06-2008, 08:23 AM
*shakes head* This is so insanely disorganized. It would be a lot more organized if people could make threads instead of posting random comments about stuff from PMs. As far as I can tell, it is just a god damn mess. Know what...fuck it. Thread make in General Chat.

Edit: Okay...So this is what I know right now.

Team Fruity:
Rye
Heath
Jess
Flying Mullet
DK
Ouch!
smittenkitten
Linus

To me everyone else is fair game and is greatly disorganized. So I will just go all out and promote a new team

Team Awesome:
I will PM everyone who has yet to join team fruity.

This should hopefully facilitate the creation of the remaining 2 teams.

Potential Team Awesome members:
Araciel
Bahamut2000X
BG-57
blackmage_nuke
Breine
Captain Maxx Power
Chaos Is the Key
Crossblades
Dolentrean
Dynast-Kid
edczxcvbnm
Goldenboko
IBPengwynZ
Jigsaw
Kentarou
ljkkjlcm9
oddler
Pureghetto
qwertyxsora
Rase
Roto13
Takara

Expect a PM shortly. I will be going to sleep and updating the status of replies in the morning.

04-06-2008, 08:58 AM
You forgot team underated which is really just ljkkjlcm9 and Takara from what i gather

edczxcvbnm
04-06-2008, 09:00 AM
Okay...Now everyone should have gotten my PM. Sorry if you didn't.

But everyone is going around through PMs asking people if they want to join teams. That is not gonna work. Just post what small faction you have decided to be a part of. I told Goldenboko I would be a part of his faction so

Team Awesome
edczxcvbnm
Goldenboko
Dolentrean
Bahamut2000X
Others

Team Underrated:
ljkkjlcm9
Takara

I don't know who else he has asked to join up with him but I say everyone is free to try and join this. It isn't like we get to pick who the other staff members are if we become the next CK anyway.

Thanks for reminding me of Team Underrated. I guess that can be the other team name.

Dolentrean
04-06-2008, 09:05 AM
Bahamut2000X also agreed to be part of Team Awesome (Or as I am calling it Truly Epic)

Jigsaw
04-06-2008, 09:05 AM
I am a great team player. My dive team in high school went all-state one year. You will not be disappointed for picking Jigsaw for your team.

I can work well with anyone, so I have no preference to who my teammates are. As long as we bring the best out of each other we should be fine.

Tasura
04-06-2008, 09:22 AM
Team Underrated for me.

Dolentrean

We still have 3 people who haven't seen the PM I sent them, one who has seen it, but didn't respond. Ed also sent mass PM's I don't know how that has went.

So far our team (presently tenatively called Something Something Something Darkside) consists of the followings;

We need five more members. PM's may be heading out soonish to those who remain.

My thanks to ed, Rye, and GB, who seem to have taken some good initiative in this even as of yet. :)

Of course. We need to have 3 teams, each of 10. If there are 4 teams, then the two teams with the least members must merge so the number goes down to 3.

I think we need to wait until all the teams are formed to have our threads made.

I'm sorry I didn't get back to you soon enough, Rye. Honestly, I'm less active on the weekends, usually only checking in a couple times a day. You've got a crew completed, though, so excellent on you. :)

I've signed up for Team Awesome through Goldenboko. Thanks for having me, guys. :greenie:

I'll be back on in roughly three hours, probably right before Part 2 of this round begins. One thing I'd like to reiterate before we get started is what Miriel posted. I had a feeling that this would eventually become a team activity and that we would be competing head-on apply directly to the forehead. Please nobody get totally upset over this and up and leave the forum or something similarly drastic.

All you guys are awesome. :choc2:

I would assume they mean can't read. What the other groups are saying/deliberating about isn't really need to know for other teams. We're each our own staff, do you think it's right to go look in staff forum? Internal affairs are internal affairs. Outsiders don't need to see it. I honestly think they didn't even need to say to stay out, it should have just been inherent.

I figured Candidate 5 would be best, because they'd have helped the community in various ways before, and becoming a Cid's Knight would connect them further to the site, so they could do more fun stuff for the forums they couldn't before, due to being more closely connected to the staff, assuming they approve.

Loony BoB
04-08-2008, 12:29 PM
I said I'd do this (I can't remember where) after the round was over, so here I go. Remember, this is my opinion, so it means little in the long run as often my opinions are shot down by the rest of staff in dramatic fashion. xD But sometimes I do okay. ;)


Candidate 1 -

Longtime member who has been around for many years.
Well known and respected by most of the veterans, but has not had much interaction with most of the the newer members.
Posts mainly in the general categories and Feedback.
Has a smart unique personality and outlook that not many others have.
Forum activity is currently moderate.

I really like this member for one big reason: They have an outlook that not many others have. If there's one thing I personally enjoy, it's diversity and unique perspective. I love it when I read something from someone in the staff forum and go "You know what, I never thought of it that way, but they're right." Well, they aren't always right, but the more different perspectives you can get the more likely you are to have more interesting discussions and also the more likely you are to cover more bases, get a better representation of the membership, etc. Now, the big flaw - as a lot of people pointed out - is that they don't interact much with msot of the newer members. I don't see this as a huge problem, more of a "lack of bonus" if you get what I mean. You shouldn't lose points for this, but you don't gain them either. There are some members of EoFF who don't really interact with anyone in particular at all, but they're still great.

Candidate 2

Joined within the last year but has become one of the top posters during that time.
Well received and like by most of the newer members, but some of the oldbies will probably claim they've never heard of this person.
Active poster in all forums, but mainly in General Chat.
Friendly poster but has the tendency to spam and be immature at times.
Forum activity level is very high

This guy, as some pointed out, is the future Candidate 4 in some ways. I would question how valuable an oldbie's opinion is if they haven't heard of someone who is a top poster over the past year! Unfortunately they are immature, and maturity is an important feature of a moderator in general. This is probably the only person I would avoid out of the five candidates, purely on that reason alone. Give them time to mature and see how things flow.

Candidate 3

Has been an active member for 3 years.
Posts a lot in the gaming forums but not much in the general forums.
Is well known and well respected in the gaming forums for their helpfulness and advice.
Calm and low-key demeanor. Hardly ever participates in forum 'events'.
Forum activity level is very high in the Gaming forums, much less so in the General forums.

This member is great when you're after a better presence and also better representation of the gamers, which is valuable considering deep down inside our index page, we are a gaming forum. The more gamers on staff, the more respected we are by other gamers, the more likely gamers are to stick around, the more likely we are to get new members due to the general nature of a newbie being to join up because of the gaming forums... or something. I think that got messy. Either way, they have a low-key demeanor which is again not a bad thing but won't help push their case, either. I like that they're helpful. Mods should be.

Candidate 4

One of the top posters in General Chat for a number of years.
Everyone's buddy. Has won numerous Ciddies in many different categories.
Generally well liked by the community, but has had run-ins with the staff due to their non-serious, jokster nature.
At one point claimed to be "anti-staff" but that posi<b></b>tion has since changed.
Forum activity level is high in the General forums. Never visits the gaming forums.

The run-ins don't matter so long as it's not happening recently, and so long as they aren't too bad. Not a good thing, but not really a bad thing depending on the situations. Everyone's buddy means nothing until you know how they react when their buddy is in trouble. It's helpful for good Public Relations, though! Ciddies obviously don't mean much. Being liked by the community is good so long as they respect him when he's serious, which he would need to show he can be. If he can, and they respect him, this is a good thing. This member has a lot of "blanks" for me because it's hard to know if the points made are good or bad. It's very hard to say where I stand because of that. I'll give this one a "Don't Know".

Candidate 5

Since joining EoFF two years ago, this person has dived right into the community and become an active poster throughout the forum.
Is constantly posting ideas for new events and making interesting, interactive threads.
Well liked by the community for their upbeat personality.
Sensitive in nature, this poster shies away from confrontation and prefers to go with the flow.
Activity level is not always constant. Periods of intense activity are sometimes followed by very low levels of posting.

This one I like. I would be very interested in this "shies away from confrontation and prefers to go with the flow" thing when it comes to staff debates, as I prefer getting a lot of input from people and I would hope that they could at least put their thoughts down and state their reasons when doing things such as electing a Cid's Knight etc. The other downside is the intense activity vs. low levels of posting... well, to me that depends on just how low. I mean, are we talking 10 posts a day for half a year and then 1 post a day for half a year? I'm okay with that. But one post a month for half a year? Er, no thanks! But the massive boost is the upbeat personality which I personally think helps the rest of the staff and community also become upbeat, and also the ideas and ways to make EoFF interesting. Some people might not think that this is important, but when no regular members are making competitions we can't exactly demand it of them, so we have to demand it of ourselves. Every now and then you just need someone who can say "EoFF is getting a bit lifeless and we don't want to lose members. We need more activity, more fun! Let's do this... [blah blah blah]" Those kind of members are what make EoFF, and if we can encourage and promote that kind of person then I'm all for it.

Really, it all comes down to what you think EoFF needs at the time. There used to be a real problem with moderating of the gaming forums, and some maybe say there still is (I'm not sure, I haven't heard that recently so I'm hoping that's not the case!). Some might say that we need more events and things to keep people interested. Sometimes people are looking for more deep discussion, while others might just say we need someone who can get us on the good side of the members. Sometimes you even need some young (but mature!) blood so you can ensure your staff are keeping up with the new members and not just living in the past.

There are a lot of things to consider, but if I had to make a choice right now, I'd go for five for the ideas or one for the perspective. If two wasn't so immature, I'd snap him up first though. We're an aging staff!

It's funny how people are asking me who these profiles were based on. None of these profiles were based on any ONE specific person. We took traits from various people and mish-mashed them together to get a group of candidates who each had a certain viewpoint and pros/cons. There was a Gamer candidate, but we didn't base it off a specific gamer. And so on and so forth.

There were certain people I had in mind when thinking of certain characteristics, but each profile isn't a specific person.

You guys may not remember, but I was a #4 once!

#2 was based on The Man.

No way XD He totally fits #4 or something...okay...he became totally anti-staff and went and created his own forum instead XP
