Howdy-the event was great, however if I may suggest, create various dummy accounts (like rsw events) to have hider's cc and a seeker's cc. We had numerous seekers blabbing about nothing on the cc, including those who came in just to spam and never looked, and hiders constantly asked to be picked, so it was hard to see chat from the leaders[b]Axslayer33[b]-the ultimate killer 17:48, March 6, 2011 (UTC)

You think at the next one we can count the wildy? Larmonas55 01:34, March 9, 2011 (UTC)

Only if the event was specifically designed to go into the wilderness, and pretty much only the wilderness. Going into the wilderness as part of an event would lead to luring and such. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 01:38, March 9, 2011 (UTC)

Lesson learned?[edit source]

Semi-protect the page after the event starts, eh? --Saftzie (talk) 03:50, March 6, 2011 (UTC)

So you're suggesting every single time an event comes around, whether it be a Wiki event or an event in-game, to protect the page? (; sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 18:00, March 10, 2011 (UTC)
Recap: The ET was using the page to communicate with participants in real time during the event. A vandal (yes only one, but one was all it took) was consistently blanking information. It took two people to battle the vandal until an admin blocked him.
So between having an admin standing by, ready to block unpredictable IPs on a moment's notice, or having an admin semi-protect the page, at least temporarily, during the event when the page information is time-critical, I think the latter makes more sense. The alternative to either two is having a squad dedicated to revert changes to the one page several times per minute, and that is clearly ridiculous. So, yes, proactive is better.
As for your distinction between "wiki" events and "in-game" events, I don't follow. Hide and Seek was a wiki event held in-game, so it was both. There's no distinction. --Saftzie (talk) 19:11, March 10, 2011 (UTC)
Battled the vandal, eh? How did they have time to arrange this? --Henneyj 11:35, March 11, 2011 (UTC)
Nothing was arranged, so can you be more clear in your question? --Saftzie (talk) 05:39, March 12, 2011 (UTC)

Timezone[edit source]

All the wiki events are at a real bad time for my timezone. You should do more events at different times not always at about the same time.

We plan to spread them out a bit more. sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 18:00, March 10, 2011 (UTC)
