Look for my new thread in the Pubs and Clubs


Final Goodbye

Ducky did it, the Templars tried it, but Moon wants to take it a step further. A fundamental dream of most users are the coveted Yorick Day Wings. Now is the chance to prove they belong to you by being an active member of the community.

This may be a contest but most importantly it is about bringing the community into a new level of engagement. The loving, generous nature of Zantarni has not changed, even with my many years here, but our ability to interact has seemingly faded as unimportant. The feeling of home that we gain from being here is too good to let go.

Let us bring it back together.

Fundamentally this thread is a chance to connect again wile gaining riches.

This contest has no time line. You, the users, and your commitment shows when the time comes.

3 thousand pages, when this thread reaches that many posts, the contest will end.

Many may be stuttering at the prospect but I know, absolutely know, that we are capable. I have seen pages fly by with excited chatter, even on this site which can be considered small. There is no small conversation, no small friendship here.

Let us talk about:
Announcements (New Topics) are always titled as such so control find is enough to find them and they are posted in red for the header and my green post color is removed. The current topic will be in the title. Past topics will be in the third post.


There are two stages to entering. First we want to see that you will stay on the site. We love newer users but this is about really reaching the community. For such a wanted and rare item I have to make sure it goes to the best user, the most committed. The qualifications show that you are willing to stay on the site. The second part of entering is all about posting. Your previous posts do not count in my eyes. They do not exist, this is all about what you will do from this point on.

Qualifications for entering:
You must have been a user for 1 year with 300 posts.
You have to have made 3 threads.


Code:

Username:
Screen shot from members list: (Make sure your username, join date, and post count are clear.)
Links to Threads: (If you do not have three make them.)
Screen shot from See Your Posts:


Member List
Member List example
See your Posts
See Your Post Example (Total and Side bar user name must be included.)


About members list:

Quote:

Q. How can I search the member list?
A. To search in the member list, you have to play with the URL, as you can't currently scroll through the pages normally. You need to edit the number in the URL: each increment of 50 is equal to a new page.
Use the link below and change "0" to another number to see the next page, going up in increments of 50:
http://www.zantarni.com/memberlist.php?mode=joined&order=ASC&start=0
If you edit the link to read "username" instead of "joined", you can search the pages by usernames in alphabetical order:
http://www.zantarni.com/memberlist.php?mode=username&order=ASC&start=0
If you know the user ID of the person you are looking for, you can mouse over the PM icon in the member list to see the last user ID on a page, then you'll know if you're close to finding the person.


Any posts shown on your member list screen shot will not count for the posting part of the contest. All new posts must be made.

Posting for a chance:
You will welcome 10 new members. (Edingtol's Gates)
You will post in 20 new threads (If you are like me and have already posted in a great number of threads brain storm some ideas and make a new, interesting, thread. A Tip: Quests seem to need a great deal of help.)
You will make 3,500 new posts.
You must post in all the threads that have shown important to the site.

Important threads:
Zan Musings- This thread may be the most important thread on the site. Not only does it have a great amount of information and helpful links but it has a plethora of history as well. Not only did it recover from deletion from hacking, twice, in '07 but it is where our Queen has helped many individuals.

RAMS: A Charity of Apples- Apples weren't always a trip to the food shop away. Once apples had to be collected, tediously, around the forums.

HSTF- This may be the most influence thread for community. Many newer members felt welcomed by this thread. This is the one thread on this list you won't need to post in but it will remain on the list. Why? Because it made me want to create FOTY. Back then, not that it was long ago, it started the whole idea. A rich(ish) Ducky getting Yoricks as a page prize for a huge marker in his thread. The idea tumbled from there. (Sorry but this thread is no longer around. Remember it though.)

The Shugga Shack- Shugga has been a growing member of Zantarni for some time now. This thread is wonderfully active and her charity is inspirational, a thread that truly encompasses the mission.

Talk Talk- Umaeril has provided a place for introductions and very cute contests for getting to know other members.

-LOL Cat's Hangout-- Cats and funny pictures, need I say more?

The Dragon's Inn: A Place of Old Dusty Wonder- This is the oldest thread still run by the original creator.

The Lurkers Lair: Please Post Quietly- Maybe if we crash the party they will scatter and help other threads. (But Please don't anger the lurkers.)

Peekaboo: Who do you See?- A thread about who is always there, perfect, we know who to hassle about posting. I kid!

Peekaboo was a thread that I wanted to see a comeback for, even made a declaration to make it so, but I can't do so alone. Now you get to help me.

Purkle-licious! Purkle-tastic! Purkle-riffic! Purklerama

The Tavern that A.L Built

Meldric the Elder's Secret Fanclub- I can't resist adding this one. I remember starting an rp with a friend involving Meldric and a mystic banana/eggs, good times.

+DG's Pet DayCare+- I once ran the Pet Center and as someone doing a better job DG deserves some love.

Why did you just shoot the person above you?- I was a major poster in this thread at some point.

The first thing that pops into your head

Word Association Game

Count to 50 Before a Knight Posts

Lets Count to 1 000 000!

The Shop Around The Corner

Scarz Shoppe of Curiosities & Assorted Items- If it wasn't for Scarz I wouldn't be on this site. When I first joined there was a problem with my account and he contacted me right away by email to straighten it out. He even gave a very generous donation. This donation helped me with my decision to start questing ever item on the site.

People who have completed the challenge:
Keres

The people that made us want to stay.

Book quotes that are worth reading twice. (From your latest read.)

If you had to put on a presentation or performance with a group what would you best contribute to it?

From Clausey:
Hmm... favorite cookie? And why?

How about... have you ever hate something (food/sport/etc.), but you still eat/play/do/watch/etc. it? How come?

If you could change Zantarni, what would it be?

What's the funniest thing that you have ever heard if it was out of context?


Alright I have another little activity for you. This one won't be for cash prizes but I think it is a good thing seeing as we will get to know our users a little better.

The internet has a lot too it and zanny members are not just here but else where on the internet too.

So what I would like to know is do any zanny members have any blogs or websites? What are they deticated too? Is it because your a fan of something or for showing skills?

I myself have an art blog dedicated to ink drawings as well as making stuffed animals. A link can be found in my sig.

Another close friend of mine, who was once a recognized member of zantarni gave me this idea to ask about zany members and their websites do to his new video blog for showing his progress in learning the guitar.

http://www.youtube.com/user/Compodulator?feature=mhee

The problem is that people don't appreciate education and culture anymore. Anything that takes serious education to understand, appreciate, or know about is considered high brow, elitist, and stuffy.

There's also the problem is a severe lack of education for knowledge's sake. It used to mean a great deal of good things if you could discuss politics, philosophy, art, and history, and how they all interrelated. Having that kind of knowledge meant you were from a good family, or could easily enter a higher social status. It was a good thing to know these things, simply because a good education, and appreciating knowledge, was highly valued.

But now? If you major in any of those things, or enjoy any of those things at all, and you're a hobo or a barista. We don't educate anymore for the sake of learning, knowledge, and improving the world. We educate to get test scores, funding, and dead-end mid-rage jobs. The people who love learning and knowledge and thinking rebel against these kinds of jobs, and usually end up even worse off.


Our social classes have reversed. Professors are actually paid very little, unless they're at a big name school on the tenure track(A thing most schools are doing away with). I think I read a statistic a while ago that said most people with PH.D's are actually near the poverty level of earnings. People who choose to go to school to learn thinking skills or things that were important 100 years ago (History, phillosophy, ect) are now looked down on and scoffed at.


It's just the way the world is these day. People don't want lofty knowledge. Brains have been rotted to the point where cheap entertainment is celebrated and renowned, while the great thinkers and communicators of our day have been relegated to serving coffee and writing blogs to communicate their thoughts.

(Quote by Better Then You Are, Gaiaonline, AD)


For those of you that participated in the last topic I have a post that I thought was very nice to go along with it. If you really enjoyed the topic maybe you wouldn't mind a writing from a girl in the position we where discussing and how small things made an impact on her choice.

http://fishingboatproceeds.tumblr.com/post/24974859506/on-the-weirdest-week-ever#notes-container

Second of all I have a new quote for you to comment on.

"Every time you spend money, you're casting a vote for the kind of world you want."

Do you have any scruples that make you not buy a product? Do you feel you should be willing to spend more on a product in order to support that type of product? What are your thoughts here?


A poem from Sceadu Phoenix:

I think the Flight will bring more posters yet.
It's starting slow, but it'll grow I'll bet.
The posting doldrums can be hard to bear,
But I am sure there's lot's for us to share.

I will admit that I am not here much.
My posting rate (if you can call it such)
Is very low, which makes me frown a bit.
For I've not got much else to do but sit.

Perhaps I shall endeavor to regain
Momentum for that section of my brain
Responsible for thinking what to say
So I can flex it here most every day.

And now I'm rambling, which is odd for me. o_O
I think that I shall toddle off to see
What I can do to quell my wandering mind,
But I'll return to tell you what I find. >.>

Almost perfect. I need, on the "see your posts", the total at the top to be included.

http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g12/50294/stjurti.png


That way I can see the total change of number of threads. That way I can prove you posted in 20 new threads. Also please include your side bar so I can see that it IS your account that is being affected by the new number.

I'm off and on too much, I think, to really be considered active here. But this will be interesting to pop on and watch progress.
