Can I propose the use of the following tags for easy browsing?

[Idea] For brainstorming and molding a simple idea
[Workshop] or [Polish] for events that are almost done but just seeking feedback.
[Help] For people looking for support in form of judges, etc
[Discussion] For general talks about events
[Spoiler] or [Trailer] for people wanting to talk about an event that is ready to go soon (I'm thinking about this
[Template] for event templates :p

Anything else?

A few more posts I scrounged up...however I'm not too sure if the planners would want them moved:

Since you used my post as an example of [Spoiler] I feel the need to explain why I did this and did it in the original Global Events forum.

This is a very large event. A lot of intense setup by the entrants. I wanted to give them some time in advance to get their maleable substances since some folks have to order them online or travel miles to a store that supplies them. Although, it turned into a [Teaser] for the event itself, I feel it would not belong in this particular forum as I was not asking for assistance or ironing things out for the event itself.

Oh! I thought of a tag!

[Rehash and Suggestions] Its always good to rehash an event postmortem to find out what went well and what didn't go well and offer suggestions on how to fix the parts that didn't go well.

Yes! Teaser was the word I was looking for. And I agree...teasers may serve its purpose better either in here or in global events depending on the effect the OP wanted. Sorry to use you as an example.

If someone is looking for judges for an event, should they make a thread here now?

I'm going to suggest an additional [Info] tag for topics that are intended to be timeless and provide information in general, as opposed to being related to one specific event.

Would it be useful to have an Ask Uncle Apollo thread for quick or general questions about events and event support? If so, I'm happy to create one and attempt to respond. It might end up saving email and PM time in the long run!

It's an interesting idea, but there are quite a few of us who can answer that questions in that vein. (at the very least, we can cite precedent and give input) Maybe a general questions thread would work better?

I think this is an excellent idea. There are times when I need a quick answer to a question only an OM can provide. Go ahead and start the thread and I'll be the first to post in it!

I agree... This would be wonderfully helpful, Apollo! I am always coming up with questions only an OM could answer, and it usually seems like I shouldn't fill up the events@puzzlepirates.com queue with a bunch of piddly questions, so I mostly just go without answers.

I'll even post my current question: Which OM moderates this forum? I need to know who to beg to sticky the "Events in Planning Calendar" thread. Creating a calendar was one of our major goals for organizing event planning, but I am doubtful many people will use it if the thread is usually buried beneath a page or two of event ideas.

I also would love to have an Ask Uncle Apollo thread. Um, I almost blush at the thought of calling you 'Uncle' though so thats not going to happen.

Edit: I dont think its weird or freaky >.> ok, kinda weird, but not for any reason I am willing to explain in public.

I need a better way of managing those, I've simply not had the time to do another update... >_<

I moved the tag guidelines up to my first post, is there anything else I should put up there?

It could potentially be moved to the wiki where indexing by pirate name/ocean could be done under nominated/awarded sections or something like that. That way people could see if Xyz pirate had already been nominated for Abc event. Just depends on what your managing needs are.

It is a race, cook island to descartes.
ye may ONLY use sloops and must pay 2k-9k for someone to work on sails on yer ship (depending on rank, able 2k dist.3k so on but ults are 9k no matter what) Whoever wins gets 100k (I hope OMs give me that money to give to the winner and 2nd place) and second place gets 40k. If anyone gets a headstart then they get nobody to work on their ship except them. There will be 1 person on every ship that watches (they will NOT be allowed to go on stations or the vessel that the ref was on will be disqualified) If ye get a worker then if ye win first or second ye MUST pay them 5k if ye got second and 10k if ye got first.
Those are the rules for it.

It's entirely up to you. As you can see from the existing threads, people use a variety of tags to express what they want.
