Yes, I am! I have things to do and some important stuff to talk about. Exciting things and new things that are happening. A few exciting announcements and a quick cross-section of how our House is doing is in order.
First: welcome Diana Khaan aboard! We're happy to have you in our wonderful House, and congratulations to Gresee for recruiting us a new member. This is what we mean, guys. We've had two new members this week. Recruiting is the best way we can show that we're a huge ball of active-ness to the Dark Council. I strongly encourage this.
For those of you looking for students or masters, please contact Rhiann via email! We're putting out Master surveys and Student surveys to pair people up for when we get some more students.
Finally, a quick announcement. Liam's going to be LOA until the 5th of August, or probably the 8th (he's old, he travels slow), so if you need him for anything, send it to me and I'll deal with it ASAP. Cool? Cool.
Ladies and gents, August is going to be one hell of a month. Since Liam's gone and we want to try something new, it's HOU COMEDY MONTH! Prepare to tickle your funnybones and have some fun making some competitions. Most of them are designed to be quick and short and doable in about 20 minutes so that you can get your participation up and have some fun in the process. Each comp runs for seven days starting on August 1st, so here's the lineup that you need to know!
Get hype for hilarity. Have fun. Be awesome. The other Summit members will announce their comps via email when the time's right as reminders (hopefully).
There's a huge stack of gaming-related announcements that I want to go through, so let's smash these out.
Mirus, you mentioned a CF comp?
That's right, I did. We're going to host a comp. Simple: Whoever earns the most CFs during August wins. We want to promote gaming because it's a simple activity we can all do regardless of how good our computers are; Pazaak is easy and runs on any computer with flash, or tablet devices, or whatever. We want to increase our TOR presence too. And we want to have loads of fun! So get out there and earn CFs - no need to submit to the comp. Also, hint: There's Gorefest where you get double CFs. Submit to that comp when it's on... and it might give you the edge.
What's on aside from the August comps? I'm glad you asked! Here's some of what HOU has going on:
On the topic of the Leadership Rewards competition, we've already had 7 members submit to it. This is good! I'm hoping to get fully half the House submitting to this by the end of August. That's my goal. About 30 people having done this exam. If you haven't done Leadership: Rewards, do it! It's a great insight into how a medal is awarded and for members young and old it's more SA credit and also good for applying for leadership/position work.
As usual, for the rest of your competition needs, be sure to visit the Competitions Page.
I'm going to preface this with the following: This is five days. This is what you absolute legends have achieved in just five days, since I became Aedile. See for yourselves and be proud of what you and your House can achieve.
This does not count Clusters of Fire, because I get a single email for them once a week. Believe me, there's more than just this going on (Turel got, as best as I can tell, about 50 CFs last night!)
I'm going to do these from now on. I want to share and celebrate what you guys do. I want you guys to know that we do things, that your activities are being noticed - and ultimately, at the end of the day, will be rewarded.
This is what I want people to talk about in the comments! I like discussion and feedback.
This week: What should my report cycle be? Weekly, every 2 weeks, monthly? I'm curious to know what you think. And how much report fiction you're going to make me write. :P
I've been Aedile for less than a week and Odan-Urr has stepped up so much with only a slight prodding. I'm proud, you guys. I'm really proud to be your Aedile. I know not always will be this fast - and sometimes, with the right push, you guys will work even harder. I'm so super hype to serve on this Summit and I just want to take this time to say thank you to everyone for their contributions, for welcoming me as Aedile, and for being here with us all on this great journey.
You're the best. <3
