Default Camp Happy Heart 2017 Planning Thread

I'm being told to choose my courses for next year, so we need to figure out CHH 2017.

Welcome to the first annual Camp Happy Heart Planning Thread! In which we ask the important questions:

-Who is proctoring it?
-What will the teams be called?
-How many teams?
-When will sign-ups start?
-Why are we doing this?

the answer to that last one is "For the sake of tradition and to preserve the memory of Build-a-Bearville!"

Let us discuss and plan.

The NUMBER ONE thing to make sure of that we do this year: avoid a repeat of Feed-a-Bear. XD

I think the top thing to figure out, though, is: who will proctor it? It was incredibly stressful for me last year, but I DID have a lot going on too (and I made a HUGE mistake with Feed-a-Bear)...

Yes, definitely no Feed-A-Bear repeats
I'd proctor if nobody else wants to, I think I'm going to be pretty busy this summer but I could manage updating scores once a day and such. But if someone else wants to do it they are more than welcome.

The famous Feed-A-Bear Fiasco was from last year's CHH. One team was seriously lagging behind, so I created a challenge to help them catch up. It wasn't a super hard game (Feed-A-Bear), they had several days to do it, there was no limit as to how many times you could play. And unfortunately I didn't set a challenging enough score minimum.

Both teams took that way too seriously, leaving me struggling to keep up with the score.

Pages 7-10 show the Feed-a-Bear Fiasco

~*~*~*~*~*~

As for expectations, here we go:

Depending on the amount of signups before CHH starts, we can have 2-4 teams. 2015 had four teams, and 2016 had two. A one-person team is a little harsh, and isn't really a team... Players are assigned to teams randomly right before CHH starts.

If someone joins after starting, sign them up. Assuming there are two teams, and currently seven players, with team amounts 4 and 3, then the person joining would go on the team with 3 people. If there are eight players, with amounts 4 and 4, they go on a random team. After either one, basically keep alternating teams people get assigned to.

After someone posts 10 times, their team gets 15 points.
Creating team chat threads earn 100 points. Setting your avatar and signature to something related to your team earns points - up to you, I guess, but I'd suggest 20 each.

Challenges are kind of crazy, as they are basically either 1) text challenges, or 2) games.

1) Text challenges are stuff that you do with text. Writing acrostic poems is a standard. We've also written parodies of Bearville songs, ran Bearville songs though Google Translate, and written a few different kinds of poems.

2) Games are typically accessed via the Wayback Machine or Build-a-Bear websites for other countries. (That last one requires a LOT of searching for a website that hasn't made the switch.) We strictly use older Build-a-Bear games as well as two Bearville games that we have links to. I plan on making a comprehensive list of game links soon.

Scores need to be updated basically daily. (Especially if a repeat of the Feed-A-Bear Fiasco happens.) Challenges typically last 3-5 days.

And then a typical rule: team with the most points wins.


And I feel like this is confusing so feel free to ask questions. XD

It's 15 points for every 10 posts anywhere on BI
100 points for a chat thread. The rest is whatever you want. I think you covered everything else: thumbup:
