Bonfire Project: Community Gathering

Post by tainn » Fri Nov 23, 2018 12:35 pm

Hey there!

This thread serves as the main base for anything and everything on the matter of the bonfire project.

About

This project is designed in hopes of collectively bringing bz players together to play and have fun on relatively forgotten, yet great maps. By setting the time and date of these smaller events up in front, it attempts to bring in a smaller level of organization, in order to get the interested people together on the same place at the same time.

The psychology behind the project is meant to be quite lax, however. There are no plans to have strict schedules and consistency for these gatherings. It is planned as a flexible project, adapting to the wishes of its participants and their availability. While I do act as the host of these events, anyone is free to take on the initiative and host a gathering of their own. Whatever the case, please, be mindful of each other.

Contribution

Anyone can contribute to this project, mainly through two factors:
  • Be present at the gatherings when available :)
  • If interested, please, do comment below or send me a private message, stating which map you would prefer to play on next, as well as your preferred time of the gathering
Why 'bonfire project'?

Bonfires are used during various celebrations, holidays, events, or during some social gatherings, so it seemed like a nifty name for the project. It was named a 'project' because it sounds cool to do so, shh

Template

While you can use whatever format you desire and find informative, should you host any of these gatherings yourself, you can use this preset format:

description: map name
date, time: day month year, time (timezone) (converter)
server, port: server, port
more info: strayer

With the release of the project, let's set the first entry up already;

date, time: 25 Nov 2018, 18:00 or 6 pm (GMT) (converter)
server, port: bzflag.allejo.io, 5103
more info: strayer

It is set for more than two days since the time of this post; this should also act as a test of responsiveness.

It will be difficult, but if time permits, I'll be there.

Hey Zehra,

Awesome! If some other time would be preferable over the one set for the current gathering, please, do share it either here or via a private message. This goes to any other interested players as well. I will attempt to stockpile any time (or date) requests I receive to formulate a schedule that fits the majority for any further gatherings we hold.

The evenings tend to work a bit better for me, usually around 11PM GMT/23 UTC works best for me.
Saturdays and Fridays are usually days I'm able to be active in as well.
Still, if the notices are in enough in advance, I'm usually able to work with most schedules. :wink:

Just a reminder to any interested players passing by that the gathering is scheduled to begin in an hour!

After consulting with a few other regulars, I have come to a conclusion that these forums, as they stand right now, are not one of the best channels to organize events or gatherings on, considering that even most regulars do not check them out frequently.

While I will be keeping this thread open in case that ever changes, it can be assumed that further gatherings will primarily be planned via private messages now, or some other community source that is active at that time.
