TheFifteenthMember Yes. You're creepy. I can't say we'll miss you while you're gone, so it'd be best if you did go. We all win that way. TheFifteenthMember 22:18, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
Hello! To make sure that the community projects remain alive, we should continue our annual EoYE. Reflecting on recent years, it's clear that the most successful events are those that don't require a huge amount of time, effort or skill so I suggest that for 2016, a year slightly lacking in activity, we adapt the user trivia contest from back in 2014. My idea is we split into two groups (individually works too but teams are more fun) and each person writes three interesting/shocking/embarrassing statements about themselves, two of which are lies. Each group has to guess which of the other team's statements are true. Do discuss your thoughts for improvements on this idea or propose an entirely new idea if you have one!

On a mostly unrelated note, I am planning to Editor-in-Chief a magazine issue to release in January, which would include the EoYE results as always. However, depending on the amount of content sent in to the wiki's email, the issue will probably be reduced to a smaller number of pages. I haven't worked out any details on how this would work and I haven't even updated the Journalist Spot with this because I'm lazy. But that said, everyone please send in as many pieces as you can so that we have enough to publish the issue and discuss your thoughts on the magazine's future. (P.S: If anyone is willing to take on the role of EiC, get in contact.)

The idea of another user trivia event sounds good. If I remember correctly, the format which was used last time worked quite well, and we didn't have too many difficulties seeing the event through to completion. I like your above idea, FM, so long as you're able to flesh out the details in such a way that the event will go smoothly.

When you said, "Each group has to guess which of the other team's statements are true", are you saying that the opposing group would already know which user had put in which three pieces of trivia and would go from there? ...or will the opposition be completely unaware of which trivia had been sent in by which user? The latter sounds a bit complicated to me if indeed it is the case. Otherwise, well done on taking the initiative!

I meant the former, sorry for not being clear. As for details, people would send in their user trivia by email, one person will be in charge of handling those emails and will not be allowed to compete in a team. The trivia will be published to teams and they must find their own method of communicating off wiki to discuss answers. Each person will send in their answers via a googleform.

Also, I'll point out that people who want to share trivia but not compete in a team would still be able to participate; they can send their trivia to the email and both teams can have a crack at it, which is still fair.

What's more interesting? Two truths and a lie or two lies and a truth? TheFifteenthMember 00:50, 30 August 2016 (UTC)

I vote two truths and one lie, that way we learn more about that person! :D Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 19:09, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
We should probably get a working system going as well as sign ups by mid-october. That way people have all of November to send in their facts and December to play. Eternal Flames KHD.pngChainoffirePizza Cut KHD.png 03:42, 28 September 2016 (UTC)

I was really looking forward to this. Rex Ronald Rilander (talk) 03:55, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
