What's your favorite VeggieTales video? \:D/

I haven't seen most of the newer ones. I really love their Jonah movie, so if that one gets to count, that's my favourite. The story is told well and the songs are lots of fun. \:D/

Once, and it was a looong time ago, and I have forgotten most of it. I wouldn't bother to watch it again just to refresh my memory. ;)

Thank you for asking so politely and adorably, but the answer is no. :(

Do you prefer instrumental music or music with words?

Yeah, Marvin. Talk about inflation. :noway: Then we'd have to change it to $100 day.

I wish we could have spontaneous $10 day, every few months because people who happen to come on are more likely to post if they have incentive of getting $10.

Talk about a stereotype, eh? ;) Yes, some of us Canadians do actually say "eh" a lot, myself included. It's just one of those expressive filler words that gets added to the end of sentences without me even thinking about it. Just one more reason to love Canadians! We're super fun. \:D/


Graces4you wrote:Do you prefer instrumental music or music with words?

I like both at different times. I love to sing along with soundtracks and worship music etc. but sometimes I just like to listen to instrumental music and think or pray or just let my thoughts drift. I spend enough time driving to have plenty of time to listen to both every week! Today I was listening to the Return of the King soundtrack, which is fantastic, and I love the Piano Guys, but I love my other music too. I will "cheat" on this question by saying I like both a lot! \:D/

No inflation and more fun - I like it! Either convince a team running in the election that they should do this at some point, or PM me in a few months to remind me and we'll do a random fun bonus day. \:D/ Maybe we could make it a more random number, like $7.83 or something more mysterious that will keep people guessing.

I think doing a random bonus day maybe every 3-4 months would be a great way to boost activity, as long as it was announced perhaps the day before? And, of course, infrequency would be the key \:D/

It tends to be however many times EK's been elected, plus one.

That would be fun \:D/ maybe a mid winter $5 post day or $3.14 post day for pi day? \:D/

It *is* humorous because it doesn't claim to be hard fact.

@Catspaw: Why is it no longer possible to purchase multiple raffle tickets?

Four times, according to the Guide to the ToO in City Hall, as I also just posted in EK's election thread, since it seems probable that is the source of origin for this inquiry.

Graces4you wrote:That would be fun \:D/ maybe a mid winter $5 post day or $3.14 post day for pi day? \:D/

I love the idea of celebrating Pi Day that way! \:D/ I almost always forget Pi Day until I go online in the evening, but I will try to remember. I might need to mark it on my calendar or something.

It is indeed humourous because it is not hard fact! \:D/

Bookworm answered in the thread in Finneman's, but only being able to purchase one is our standard procedure, and being able to buy more was only done briefly for something specific. I didn't change any raffle settings.

Sure it is. Last time EK ran he was over the limit, but it was raised in order to allow it.

Sure it is. Last time EK ran he was over the limit, but it was raised in order to allow it.

This is the kind of limit that really should be updated periodically, since the intent is to make sure that one or two people do not monopolize the position of mayor/chief of police. We've run almost 30 elections already, so serving even 5 times wouldn't be a huge percentage of the entire history of the ToO. It is still entirely keeping with the intention of the rule to change it now and then. It made sense to change it a long time ago, and so it was changed. It will make sense to change it again in the future, because more time has passed and that is a significant factor for this type of rule.
