@GlaxusPlaxus I already made a comment adivising that we shouldn't make this about plague because it really isn't, but there IS discrimination against plague that needs to be addressed. It's a lot more visible to us so I understand that you might not know about it, but it's there.
UMAs get rejected for having anything that remotely relates to plague aesthetic, yes even bone spikes like the ones in the wasteland get rejected for "looking like suffering". Any anatomical part of our our flight aestetic was outright banned, some UMAs from years past get refused from reprinting because it's "too gorey". We have no coli venue, last year's RoR apparel looks nothing like anything plague would ever produce, it was just a piece of clothing. Ah yes, green bards, the staple of plague.

In any case, this is not the subject of this thread and I would very much like to not make this gorgeous annivesary event about our flight, or any flight that isn't either earth or water. Let them have the spotlight! :)
If you wanna talk to me about this you're welcome to shoot me a DM, I would love to talk about it!

Snek put it very well - we get the short end of the stick on a bunch, but this event shouldn't be about us.

[quote name="qunii" date="2021-06-08 12:37:52" ] I feel like a lot of people over-hype themselves for upcoming things like this and then burn out in disappointment when said thing doesn't meet their high bar of expectations. Not just on FR, but on the internet in general. I think this is pretty cool tho, I love the idea of community interaction events like this and I love that Earth is in the spotlight for it! [/quote] Really spot on

I was hoping for something to spend some treasure/gems, but I will to see what the rewards will bring before spending any. I got a couple gen1s I want to complete. I just hope one of the rewards will be worthwhile.

While I am disappointed we have to wait to find out what we're getting, I am excited about the new event! They could use these styles of events for a lot of things. I think it's a great new edition to the site and hope they re-use it more in the future!

Almost everything I wanted to say has already been said, so I only got one more thing to add:
I'm really glad this event is super low key and specifically doesn't reward higher participation or have a leaderboard. It would really really suck to have exclusive items that are gated behind grindey mechanics (bc the only way you can get more supplies outside of dailies is coli and exalting) and having a leaderboard for individuals goes against the spirit of the event (collaboration). ALSO in the USA it's finals season for most students so it would suck for them to not have the chance to grind or have to risk their grades to do that :')

Also for anyone who played DV: isn't this just the spring event that everyone hated, but with all the parts that caused drama removed. I remember ppl calling dv unethical for forcing people to check in with the site constantly and ofc there was drama around cheating and privilege when ppl got on the leaderboard... No way fr would have seen that and put that in their event

I also don't think fr NEEDS to incentivise participation- tons of people exalt and play coli every day anyway, so even if there's ppl like me who will only do the bare minimum I'm sure a lot of people will be participating

[/quote] Really spot on [/quote] agreed. it's fun to theorize, but ultimately it's safer to keep your expectations low so you won't get super disappointed about something that was likely not going to happen anyway. plus, it's easier to enjoy things that way, at least for me.

Crim is also accessible more than once a day. She's every hour, I think.
