Commenting Challenge Addendum
« on: January 15, 2015, 04:00:52 PM »
This is an additional challenge that is in the spirit of the original commenting challenge but totally different. Also, takers participate on a weekly basis and a fresh round commences every week. The weekly quota for participants is 5.

Personally, I have a bit of a fetish with wanting at least 3 comments/votes on each of my subs (3 just happens to be my fav no.). So the challenge is the following:
Comment on 5 or more subs that have less than 3 votes. Only voted is NOT an acceptable comment. Stubs also acceptable but it has to be one that you've read and found promising of expanding into an actual sub one day.

In return, the prize will be 1 comment on a sub of your choice (anything across the board and including the option to reserve a unique Moonlake vote for a future sub *available with this offer only) to be completed before every Strolenati Sunday or thereabouts (it depends on when you post your choice and the length of said sub, it might wind up in next week's slot due to timezone differences or time taken to read for a long sub, I'm in Australia).

Additionally, if 20 or more subs(stubs) that have less than 5 votes(comments) are found and reported here in this thread, 1 comment is also offered that is separate from the weekly quota.

I like this idea
Chosen of Aktagarti – Divine Synod Guild – Level 1
Might: 2 | Agility: 3 | Wits: 4 | Charm: 3 | Spirit: 4 | Power: 2

The old man, grey-haired, braid hanging down.
He is clothed in faded brown robes.
His craggy face is turned up, bathed in moonlight;
He looks for his goddess to smile upon him.

Actually the format of a weekly round was partly inspired by the multiple round you suggested for the upcoming quest yesterday. I've pledged myself to the Strolenati Sunday so these and other things roped into one gave birth to this addendum challenge.

Obtaining a list of undercommented subs is easy -


http://strolen.com/browsing/locations/none/none/20

for example. Select a category, go to the sort options on the right, select comments ascending.

True, I use this method too but frequently I get slack and just randomly browse. Anyway, my criteria is based on votes which sometimes isn't quite the same thing as number of comments (although not sure what's the ratio of mismatches). I included part b thinking that it would be good to compile here a list of all subs/worthy stubs that have been undercommented and/or undervoted.

After some more contemplation, decided to change terms to keep part b separate from weekly quota and increased number of subs/stubs that have to be reported.

Ok, i'm game. Will review 5 subs with less than 3 votes over the next 48 hours!

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

No, I don't think I got up to the yucky bits yet, I just have length aversion in terms of reading on Strolens. I'm also a little buried under with reading assignments here at Citadel and others self assigned at the moment so I break stuff down in sessions to read.
