This will always be an issue with events as the time will never work for everyone, yet people will still want to participate. I couldn't make the event since I worked 8 hours till 10:30pm PST (it was busy as -_- where I worked till closing) and by the time I got home I was too tired to log on and see where things had got. I did leave my gifts I got for others with zero though the day before - even though pretty last minute as I didn't get my work shift till less than 24hrs before hand.

 

Dunno about other people but I was pretty close to not handing my gifts over to some one to pass out for the event just because of not knowing that day would become busy for me. :\

 

As I said, Secret Odins might have missed the event due to a variety of factors, some of them definitively valid (like yours).

 

PS: I can't believe I didn't took a screenshot of Michaelleli for my album! It was the perfect chance! :p_laugh:

My SO failed to show up but its okay though coz I didn't put much hope on it actually :heh:. Anyways, big thank you to Brave` for the consolation gift :ok:. Really appreciate it.

 

The event was great overall and kudos to Zero for being a great host. Looking forward for the next year SO event. Good job everyone  :no1:.

I was there, he wasn't.  I gave you the item when I gave the item for the other person who didn't show up..


Okay, I'll amend the OP.
 

The problem was, us in the back couldn't see whose turn it was, and sometimes people opened random chats, so it was easier to move forward to see you talk. :x You need more megaphones. :3


The biggest problem I had with using the Megaphones was that I got flooded with PMs from random people asking me what the event was about. It became a big issue with me trying to keep track of who's getting gifts and who was part of the event and trying to talk to me. If there was like a Miniphone that announced things only on one map, I'd be more inclined to use that instead.
 

So what happens to those whos secrete odin's was a no show?


They'll just have to wait until their Secret Odin contacts them. I only have gifts from those who bothered to PM me and tell me they weren't able to come.

I think for the megaphone problem, yell something like "The event will be starting soon!" (and then /ex to prevent question spamming).

This way, the people who signed up for the event would know it's going to start soon, and come over. The people who don't know what's happening would not know where to go, thus have the place much cleaner >.<

I can't really /exall when there were people in the event trying to talk to me through all the conversations going on.

What would really help is if the Megaphone didn't reveal who was talking. Making it an anonymous announcement like the Santa in Prontera announcement would be really nice, since I wouldn't get any PMs from random people not part of the event.

You can actually store the megaphone in storage and transfer it to another character. Try announce it on one, log off, and hop on your other so no need to /ex

As much as I would like to bring DB parties back to Luoyang, I don't think my event is a good way to go about it.

Did you? Sorry, I couldn't keep track in all the chaos. Plus, someone unloaded a whole bunch of gifts on me as a thank you so I'm having trouble sorting out which in my inventory were Secret Odin gifts and which were thank you gifts. >_<


Maybe I had a second secret Santa that gave you a gift for me ahead of the event?

Grandious event Zero!
You're great for hosting that kind of event.

Oh how I wished it stayed like this for the entire duration of the event. Would've gone by a lot faster.

Ikr? Thats what should be. But I sit in the back row when event started, and I cant hear who's being called. Calling names by creating chatroom should be visible even from far aback, but the problem is with long IGN

For next year, maybe you should organize it with some people. Particularly to sort the names and prevent skill spamming. A sage with ME and a pair of performer to push people back maybe? XD


Oh and thank you to Kara Vixen that become my Secret Odin /thx. So happy with Costume Sakkat now /kis2
Hope you can stay untill event ended but I guess that was pretty late for you

I underestimated the viewing range for text chat. I apologize for my oversight. I'll definitely consider having people situated AROUND the sleigh platform instead.

Yes, I didn't foresee how bad the skill spamming would get. Hiring players with Silencing abilities and performer players to help push people back would help for next year's event.

There was a fireworks finale with Disneyland music. Video should be up by tomorrow or so. It's been a while since I've done any video editing so it's taking me some time to re-learn the basics. x__x
