Events

Drop party

The drop party will be the last event held at the Wikifest. It will be held at the party room, where all the donations will be placed into the chest. The lever will be pulled and the donations will be released in balloons for everyone to collect. Donations are always welcome and appreciated. Don't feel embarrassed to make a small donation. Items like Runes, ore, logs, gems, and even the lower armour/weapon types are more than fine. The hope is that the chest will be overflowing with a huge variety of items, so there will be something for everyone. Good luck!

Donations: If you would like to donate item(s) to the drop party, please list your name and your contribution. Please note that ALL donations must be FREE-TO-PLAY items! Pay-to-play items are not accepted because this would not be fair to our the free players among us. If you have a pay-to-play item you would like to donate, please sell it and donate the proceeds to the drop party.

Planning

The schedule goes as following...Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 15:35, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

  • All attendees meet in Falador square in world 107 at the beginning of the party
  • We shall have discussion for 15 minutes.
  • We will all players proceed to the Party Room. Take out what you're going to drop and one player bring an extra 1k. After everyone is done (we need to be sure) then they may spread out and the player with 1k left may pull the lever. I'm assuming everyone knows how the Party Room works?
  • We shall now play games for about 30 minutes. Listed bellow are games.
    • Stronghold Race - 1 Moderator stand at the entrance of the Stronghold of Security. 3 Players must race to the end of the Stronghold. The rules are that if you have finished a level before, you are not allowed to use the portal or you shall be disqualified. There will be four party moderators watching the portals, each set at a different level. First player to finish wins 10k. This game may be played once.
    • Hide and Go Fally - A moderator (party not p-mod) hides somewhere in Falador. Rules are, you may not use the mining guild or the Dwarven mines. The hider may hide in an upper story of a building, on the walls of Falador or in the White Knights Castle. Variety of places to hide. Now there is also a moderator/admin timing the game on the ground. After 10 minutes, they may call back all players and the hider if they are not found. However, if a player manages to find the hider the hider must follow them and they can return to Falador square to collect their 10k reward. This game may be played as many times as possible in the 30 minutes.
  • Now each person may chose one of three things.
    • Those who like to pk may go to world 17 (I think that's a pking world right?) to do so. Members, remember to bring f2p armour and weapons because this is in f2p. We may do this under the moderation of two party moderators/admins level 90+ (it's a pking trip).
    • Members who would like to may go play pest control in world 59. We will all travel to Port Sarim TOGETHER and take the boat to the outpost. This is not a PC world so we have no company. If our crowd of people is bellow 5 then we must go back to the party or some may go pking.
    • The party may continue for those who would like to stay. We'll just do what we did with the games. Hide and Go Fally and Stronghold Race. We need at least 3 party moderators to manage this.

Well there's our schedule. I hope we don't get any looters for the Drop Party, however world 107 is almost never crowded. If it is then we will have one users go and look for the least crowded f2p world. Then, they will tell all other users to come on clan chat or private. However, everyone must have private chat on friends only for hopping incase anyone tries to follow.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 15:47, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Events

Suggest events for the Fall Wikifest of 2007 here!

FTP pking for those who want to.

Castle wars? Pest control? Start our own riot? Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 01:09, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

No riots. Castle Wars and Pest Control are pay-to-play. We need to work out the logistics of pay-to-play activities, which should be held after the free-to-play activities and the drop party. Slayer-icon.png Gangsterls Divination-icon.png talk02:36, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Perhaps a wilderness run in f2p with monk robes? We could all be a team and (try to) kill people. BUT, our level differences would get in the way of effective teaming. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 05:47, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
Me and Atlandy planned the entire schedule out. I will place it in the section above.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 15:21, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
I suggest that we play more than one minigame. There are plenty of other things we can do like Barbarian Assault, Castle Wars, Trouble Brewing, or the TzHaar Fight Pits. Dtm142 20:19, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
Indeed, but those are too far away from Castle Wars. PC is relatively close. All we do is walk together to Port Sarim and take the boat.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 21:15, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
A parade around the world to get there :D ? Dtm142 23:08, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

A riot would be awesome... or a chain party lol. Second-abyssal-whip.png Spitfire Dragon sq shield.png talk 10:28, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

We're not going to riot. That's against the rules and we can't encourage that as a fansite. Dtm142 02:09, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

With respect to Barbarian Assault, myself or another moderator could use the lunar group teleport to the Barbarian Outpost if we want to do that. Dtm142 02:09, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

This is terrible! This is supposed to be a F2P party for once, not some wiki mod hotshot's member super exclusive PC'ing party! I say, as long as there is the party, It should stay in F2P. Over and out. Flango2 user·edits·chat·sign here, please11:23, 31 August 2007 (UTC)

As I saw it, the main party events (meet-up, F2P games and drop party) are all F2P. I saw the options at the end were what people could do as the main party is finishing. I personally, will probably do one of the following:
  • Join the PC group (because I'm not done PC since it changed)
  • Hang around in the F2P world (if people still chatting)
  • Go off and do my own thing (probably working on some skills)
Anyway, that's just my interpretation. Amaurice talk 15:03, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
I think Amaurice is exactly right. The main event is F2P. The drop party and the meet and greet are the main foucus' here. After that is completed, a schedule will be put up to tell people where the groups (F2P and P2P) will be heading next. Anyone can join either, or none. Scythe.png Atlandy 15:12, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
I want to do more than one thing on members. The last wikifest apparently sucked, so I want this one to be a success. There is much more to do on the members game, and the entire party isn't going to be members only. There will still be f2p events going on at the time of the members part. It isn't an "exclusive PCing party." And be grateful that we have an f2p section. Some fansites don't even consider that. Dtm142 01:32, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
No offense, but it clearly says that there will be a party going at the time of PC and Pking.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 14:15, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Moderators

Discuss moderators and their responsibilities here!

I propose that all party moderators wear a special costume to identify them at the event. We should discuss this on IRC or clan chat ASAP. Remember that it must be:

  • An f2p outfit.
  • Relatively cheap, but difficult enough to get that most players wouldn't have it lying around in their bank to prevent impersonation.

Those are my thoughts. Dtm142 20:13, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Emerald amulets or necklaces may be a good idea. Or some kind of tiara.Second-abyssal-whip.png Spitfire Dragon sq shield.png talk 10:25, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

We need to discuss it privately to prevent impersonation. Dtm142 02:07, 31 August 2007 (UTC)
Rather, however I feel no need for outfits. Especialy for the Pest Control players and Pkers.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 14:13, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
Here's an ideal outfit. (Do NOT include the cape, I forgot to unequip that.

http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/9858/wikifestadminattemptxk9.png

Hopefully, you'll all accept it, as I'm now 98% broke on my RS budget (I only have around 200 gp) due to buying the stuff. I have enough of the outfits for ten people, including myself. 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko)
I'm not wearing wizard robes, a ruby amulet and equiping an iron longsword. In Neville Longbottom's words, When hell freezes over.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 15:03, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
I already have the hat, top and legs, so I'll just go make the amulet and sword to wear in the f3st! Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 21:49, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
Ilyas, if you're too egotistical to wear a costume to a drop party, that shouldn't stop the rest of us from wearing it. I can't see the image :| Dtm142 22:06, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
The point is, why wear a costume? If the people comming really ARE from the wiki, they should be able to check the page and see who is and isn't a party moderator.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 22:13, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

I've made myself, Ilyas, and Dtm "Event Moderators" - basically the overseers who manage the scheduling of the events and can approve changes to the schedule. I also made myself the Level 1 Stronghold Race mod, the Drop Party mod, and a Pest Control mod. As for costumes, we should be fairly well-known to all. Wearing normal equipment would help us avoid the attention of party crashers, we'd look like a clan or something if we all had the same outfit. Besides, I'd like to wear my most expensive p2p equipment into f2p just to look cool =P. Slayer-icon.png Gangsterls Divination-icon.png talk02:07, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

I now have the costume, and I think it's quite a good decision. I mean, who wears that combination of stuff? Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 05:24, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

We don't need Pest Control moderators. That would be just plain dictatorship, because if you're bussy and a party mod tells you to close the gate, you can't say no, can you? We don't need PC mods.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 19:49, 4 September 2007 (UTC)
Also, I understand what you mean when you say "attention". When I go to f2p, I get comments about my "red sword" and my "iron platebody" (granite platebody) being noobish. But still, we should all be able to wear our normal outfits, not anything special.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 19:55, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Further discussion

Any other discussion goes here!


I don't think you could assemple a skull sceptre in a half hour. When they first came out, it took me 45 minutes just to get one piece. I think we should just have a race from beginning to end of the stronghold, and post a party mod on each level to make sure nobody uses the portals. It would probably also be worth mentioning that players need their bank pins and recovery questions set to do this game. - Oj (who still hasn't fixed his siggy :P)

True, ok we see who can get to the end first. We need four volenteers to make sure nobody uses portals. Ice I could assign you to the job before we go pking.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 14:44, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Yeah i say no to the skull sceptre building that would take at least an hour to assemble. Dangerbunny1 23:23, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Depends on your luck i made 1 in 10 minutes just becuse i found the right skull half and bootem half of sceptre on ground and in 2 kills of catablepons and ankous i got it....--Attack Ancient Fofo Slayer 03:11, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

If we do a race someone (me possibly?) needs to be at the end to keep track of who gets there and when. I have Hypercam, so I record who gets there and when so there can be no cheating with someone saying "I was there first!" when the person may have never been there for another 5 minutes. Dragon medium helm! Whaddaya know?Chiafriend12Better than rune!I have 12 friends. 03:59, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

You need 4 attentive mods at the end of EACH level to make sure nobody cheats...--Attack Ancient Fofo Slayer 18:38, 2 September 2007 (UTC)

I've already said that and covered it. Atlandy volenteered the 3rd, I've asked ice about level 4 and I'm doing 2. The first level... meh we can find someone.Yellow partyhat.png Ilyas Talk Contribs 18:49, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
Maybe we can do a Simon Says game, I could be the volunteer. :) Mr. Reeves 19:54, 2 September 2007 (UTC)
