The Comment Corner is a month-long commenting event that I’m hosting in the Writing Chat and the SSWLchat that functions like Camp Nano, with little badges as a prize. Sign-ups for the event open a month in advance, and I'll give you guys a spreadsheet to put down your name and your comment goal. The sum of every participant's goal will be the combined goal.
Every comment counts as a "point." Comments on storylockes and SSWL/Video runs gain an extra half point toward the combined goal only, not toward personal goals. I might introduce other bonuses for future runs of the event, depending on how they go.
The sign-up deadline is the day before the event begins, but latecomers to the event can still participate! Their goals and comments won't contribute to the combined goal, though, just their personal ones. This is so the tiers for badges don't get thrown off mid-event.
Comments will be submitted normally through either server’s shout outs form. Which form I use to pull your comment submissions depends on which server you indicate when you sign up. You’ll have access to a spreadsheet that’ll let you see where you stand with your personal goal and where we stand with the combined goal.
Tiers and Badges
As we progress through our combined goal, we'll unlock badges for signatures, or wherever else you want to put them, at: 10% of the combined goal, 30%, 60%, 100%, and a stretch goal of 125%. (The stretch goal percentage might change for future events, to make sure it's feasible but still challenging.) Badges will also be personalized with your username and final comment count if you reach your personal goal as well.
An example for the start of the event:
For 125% with a completed personal goal:
Since latecomers’ comments don’t contribute to the combined goal, they’ll get their own separate badge for completing their personal goals.
Themes and Mascots
Each event’s badges will change depending on the theme we decide on before the event starts. Let your brains do their creativity thing, I'll do my best to pull together a badge set that represents what we go with. Throw suggestions for a theme and/or mascot Pokemon in the servers’ respective events channels, and I'll run a poll a week or so after sign-ups start so we can all decide on one.
- The event ends with a roundup of all the runs we commented on together.
- The event will run three times a year: in June, September, and February.
- In the Writing Chat, you can join the Comment Corner role if you'd like to be pinged for future runs of the event, including sign ups, suggestions and polling for themes/mascots, and weekly check-ins. Just type "!rank Comment Corner" to add or remove yourself from the role. (I'm looking into a similar role for SSWLchat as well.)
