Namaste, Boolpropians!
Happy April Fools, everyone! I'm really bad at it, so I'll merely wish you a happy one! Oh, look over there!
:duck: :splat:
Did I get you good? April Fools!
See? I'm so bad at this.

We have a few announcements for the month of April, so buckle up! The first one is the Medal Hoarder Medal has landed. As an unfortunate side-effect to the limits of our beautiful Boolprop, we're only permitted 81 medals to be collected and displayed at any time. This hasn't been an issue for a long while, but recently we've started noticing several people nearing the daunting 8-1, and knew we needed to do something. Teresa and Julie have worked tirelessly to find a solution to this problem, and such the Medal Hoarder Medal was created! I know this might upset some, but please be kind, this isn't something that can be helped and the moderators and admins are doing what they can with what we have!

Another medal topic of note is a friendly reminder that we've revamped our Let's Build It challenge! The rules have been totally readjusted and we've been aiming to do more unique and easier to accomplish build options, so please come check it out! Participating alone will net you a MEMBER STAR and 30 House Points! Participating in 5 events will net you this medal: Image So come on in and join the party! It doesn't need to be a brand new lot to count!

One final announcement is more just an alert for those who like participating in SimNaNoWriMo hosted here on Boolprop: SimNaNoWriMo's date is being moved. After a lot of discussion, we've decided to try pulling SimNo back to July. For the past two years we've done SimNaNo in September, but there's been a lot of talk of people having trouble due to school and other commitments that often occur during August and September (as it's a very common moving time here in the states, too). Due to this, we've decided to try moving it back to the month of July this year to see if that allows our members more room to breathe between SimNaNo and actual NaNoWriMo, as well as for our members who are in school or otherwise busy during the months of August and September. We'll be talking more about this as time goes on, but we wanted to let you know ASAP so you guys can adjust your mentality for a different month this year!



Image

This month has a focus on a SURPRISE challenge! We'll be releasing one later this month. It's on the super hush-hush, need-to-know basis... :shiftyeyes:
I'll give you a hint: Easter Eggs

  • Chase got a Kudos for his DOOM. An Alphabetocalypse from calientequeen, who says it's for "inspiring me to start my own Apocalypse challenge! So funny to read and I can't wait for more!"
  • Mojot89 left a Kudos for gretski6 on her A Drifting Nomad for "sticking it out after some house fails. You can do it!"

I love the idea of SimNaNo in July... though I don't really have school or any other commitments. Oh wait, damn, I'll be away at the beginning of July! Guess I better prep and schedule some posts, then! What, giving me license to play ahead? Don't mind if I do :)

Congrats to everyone on the kudos and SOTM things, and THANK YOU for my kudos Ceresin :D
