Spirit Day!

It's a week of fun, games, and healthy competition! Welcome to the ToO's first-ever Spirit Week, "a game of knowledge and skill"! \:D/

Spirit Day!

Postby LizzieG » Fri Aug 21, 2009 5:14 am

Friday is SPIRIT DAY! \:D/

Who won the epic Music Day song challenge? Before I tell you, I would like to share with you the two songs that were performed: The Rainbow Unicorns Song and The Peanut Butter Lollipops Song. (All the song lyrics are posted here for your reading enjoyment. :) )

Now what about those results? Right here! \:D/

It's Friday, everyone! Happy Spirit Day! Enjoy the $4 Post Day in its honor! :D There won't be a regular group challenge today; rather, the week-long challenge (coming up with a shop item) will take its place. As usual, everything's due TODAY, at 11:59 PM, EDT (via PM to me :)). Oh, and I should add that the final results probably won't be posted until later on Saturday, since I'll be away from my computer most of the rest of that day (I'll be on in the evening today, though, if you have any questions).

WEEK-LONG GROUP CHALLENGE

Come up with a shop item - complete with a short description, long description, and small image - that creatively shows the spirit of the ToO! :D

STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD!

PM me a picture of something yellow and purple in honor of the old ToO! \:D/

AVATAR DRESS UP DAY - SPIRIT DAY!

Today's theme is a color theme! When choosing your avatar, just make sure your team's color is prominent. :) Also, I decided to amend the new avatar policy slightly: from here on out, all teams will earn a certain number of points directly related to the number of avatar-changers, without any minimum percentage required. :)

Colors chosen based on your team name! \:D/

  • Peanut Butter Lollipops!: Red
  • Captain Crunch and the Cereal Killers: Blue
  • Rainbow Unicorns: Rainbow
  • The Rath of the Israelites: White

---------------------------------

Current Scores:

Peanut Butter Lollipops: 92*
Rainbow Unicorns: 90*
The Rath of the Israelites: 66
Captain Crunch and the Cereal Killers: 28
I love the \:D/ smiley

Great job on the songs everybody! \:D/ I loved the singing. :yes: I was hoping to be able to join you with singing our team's song, but I was thwarted by a missing microphone adapter. :x Grr...

Just as a reminder, spamming is, of course, highly discouraged. If your posts start disappearing, you definitely need to add more content to your posts! ;) Everybody can consider this a friendly warning.

EDIT: I finally heard all the songs, and was incredibly impressed! :D Lizzie, your song for the results was very nice, and looking at the songs, I can see that you had a really tough decision! Good call. DAM, way to step up and get bonus points for your team! Nice job on the song. :yes: Rainbow Unicorns, the way that you were able to make the song a group effort was really impressive. I recognized a familiar voice or two in the song - good stuff! It's too bad that Laura never found the right mic stuff, because I know she would have given everybody a run for their money if she had! Way to go, everybody! \:D/

That's about how long the song will be ruined for me, too, Lizzie. \:D/

Apparently not impressive enough. :x

I'm looking forward to seeing the team results for Spirit Week. \:D/
