More information on Spirit Week is here! \:D/ (The first post has been updated with this information)

Image

August 17-21, 2009

'Spir-ət 'Wēk (noun): A week set aside for the showing of emotional support for one's educational institution. It can be manifested in the exhibition of school colors in dress and decoration, attendance of athletic events, or verbally in the form of chants or cheers.

Some of you may have had personal experience with school Spirit Weeks, others not so much, but wherever you fall on the spectrum, we're sure you'll enjoy this ToO-ized Spirit Week! \:D/ However, instead of choosing teams based on actual school rank (freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors), the teams will be chosen randomly. On Monday morning, a new Spirit Week forum will open up, as well as private sub-forums for each of the four teams.

Each day, there will be three challenges related to that day's theme: a group challenge, an individual challenge, and an avatar "dress-up" contest:

Avatar "Dress-Up Days": Changing your avatar to a team-specific theme related to the main theme of the day (for example, on Odyssey Day, one team might be assigned "Odyssey characters," while another is assigned "Odyssey albums"). Users who participate by changing their avatars will need to post their new avatar in a certain thread in their team sub-forum to get credit; the team with the most members "in costume" will earn that day's "avatar points." Nothing fancy will be required for the avatars, but if you need help with your "costume," well, that's what your teammates are for! \:D/

Put Your Heads Together!: Whether it's trivia questions, riddles, or a game, this daily challenge will best be solved by teamwork! Points will be given to the team(s) that best completes that day's challenge.

Stand Out From the Crowd!: Similar to the daily group challenge, only for individuals. Instead of only one winner each day, however, all completers will be rewarded equally.

Avatar and group challenge points will be added together to determine the winning team (aka the recipient of the Spirit Trophy! \:D/). There will also be a week-long challenge that will factor in too, as well as points for deciding on a team name (the sooner you decide on a name, the more points your team will get!). The points for the individual challenges will be tallied in a separate category; for example, if you're doing both the individual and the group challenges, the points you earn from the individual challenges won't affect your team's standing.

Spirit Days:

Monday: Bible Day
Tuesday: Game Day
Wednesday: Music Day
Thursday: Odyssey Day (and kick-off of the Passages Countdown!)
Friday: ToO Spirit Day!

Bummer, I'm out of town all week. I'll be on the internet probably 5 minutes a day. Would it still worth me signing up if I was on theToO 2 minutes a day? If so, yes. If not, no. \:D/

Typically you are signed up because you posted here. *i hope I dont end up on his team8 (No offense but a player who cant commit to the group is not particuarily helpful)

Um, I doubt Taq and Lizzie are going to ignore someones comment on "Well, if I'm on 2 minutes, will that be helpful?" and just add them when they probably can't be in the contest. If Taq and Lizzie are that heartless, then you're probably right. In the end, I didn't think they were... so, I doubt Danadelfos has signed up... the admins read every post, I'm pretty sure.

And If I'm on Danadelfos's team, I'm all for it! :)

(That's the second time I've laughed so hard...)

Sorry if I made you feel like that. But, I I would assume even if you posted you wouldn't be automatically put on the list of participants. Regardless of the "rules"...
