Event Board

Post by Kaede » December 29th, 2018, 1:53 pm

I was thinking about this for a while now.
I wanna suggest a event board (like an Information board) where active events are shown (like christmas presents or even double money tuesday), so that we know which events are still running. That could also be a place to drop the Link for stuff like the present page.



Example:

[Event Board] "date + server time" (active clock)
[Running events]
•Double Money Tuesday (available every Tuesday)
•Sparkle Sparkle (Link to the topic) [event running from ?? To ??]
•Merry Christmas (Presents spawn around the page. Open them here(Link) [Event running from ?? To ??]




Could be in Explore as a new section.
Lisia Could be the poster girl for that section :)

That's a great idea. Would be really handy for keeping track of what's going on. Things like offical contests could also be displayed there.

Maybe there could also be some kind of archive to see when past events took place and what you could do/get there? Every now and then I get asked where I got a certain promo (and sometimes I honestly can't remember) so having some kind of official list where people could look up stuff like that might be useful.

Maybe an additional link to the event board could be posted beneath the VA banner, so that you see immediately on every site that something new is going on...
Since we already have some kind of calendary function with the birthdays, I think this could be easily implemented :)

I like the idea. It will be very handy. Sometimes I can miss some events, because I don't visit main page too often :(

I like this idea. Generally speaking, more transparency about running or ended events would be nice. From the main site, one could think that the Presents Event is still running, even though it ended a few days ago. No official word from yankees, presents just stopped appearing and now we have users wondering why they don't find any presents.
The same thing applies to Sparkle Sparkle Event. There was the question if it affected DCC eggs as well. No answer to that, where a simple "yes" or "no" from official site would have stopped speculation. Now, we are unsure, if the event is still running, because yankees last post stated that the event would end when the unwrapping of the presents ends, which he said, would've been yesterday or even the day before. But the unwrapping page is still there... so... is it over yet, or is the shiny chance still higher than usual?
I think communication is the key, at least, when it comes to specific event dates, because otherwise it leads to confusion in the userbase which then leads to frustration and to the thinking that the admin doesn't really care. Which hopefully is not the case.

Sounds great. It would be much easier to keep track of what is currently running.
