    Who is interested in Mardi Gras?

    I am happy to announce Mardi Gras has made FIRST PAGE and is climbing for number of views. No page since LAST OCTOBER has had more interest. Put it this way, no event has ever gotten as many views as fast on Arkadia Forum. None.

    THAT IS HOW MUCH INTEREST THERE IS.

    This event impacts all of Entroipa. Every planet has people wanting to come. Every Society has a place to gain new recruits with the exposure. Every LA, Every Shop, Every Trader everyone. It is a huge free party for all hosted by those who want to give back.

    It is refreshing. Entropia is filled with busnessmen trying to make a buck off your back, and scammers just trying to steal it. This is an event designed to lose money, and put it in the hands of the little guy, at a party. At a Parade.

    At Mardi Gras.

    YOU ARE INTERESTED IN MARDI GRAS.

    thats why you are here.

    two weeks until the event, 1/5 of the tickets now sold! Not bad for a few days! Thank you for everyone who bought tickets today. I would like to make either more keys or more terramasters as throws. Any suggestions?

    The monied players have exercised their power and had a post removed from this topic. I have adjusted things accordingly. This is not the first time the forum moderators have acted to censor one of my posts to benefit certain players in the game. I understand that the forums, as well as the shops and channels, are controlled by powerful, rich players and will not risk the event over the issue. It is a badge of honor that such extreme steps would be taken to steer this event.

    I apologize for any confusion.

    It was I who exercised that power not a moderator. You stated that I have done that to benefit certain players in game... No, I did it to benefit the others who use this forum and prevent a derailment of a promoted event. Questions? If not please do continue your event promotion post and I wish you the best of success for the planned event.

    For those of you who may be concerned that this may hurt the reputation, interest, or attendance of this event, be assured, it is quite the contrary. The powers that be have finally recognized how much Mardi Gras can impact them personally and financially, and have made an attempt, at this early stage, to exert some control over the event. Poke the bear, and sometimes it notices. Although their involvement so far has purely been negative, that can turn around.

    First they ignore you.
    Then they mock you.
    Then they fight you.

    Then YOU WIN.

    There are still two weeks until the parade. Big wigs or not, forum or not. EU support or not, the parade will go on. We have a Court, We have free stuff to give away. We have a plan and are sticking to it.

    You have a King.

    We will Crown a new one in 2020, and if someone thinks they can do better, maybe they should EARN IT.

    THAT STARTS NOW!

    Who thinks they can be a better King of Mardi Gras? Step up or shut up.

    Anyone wishing to be the King of Mardi Gras 2020 should really start a discourse, or how will we know who to vote for?

    Do you really want me to run this again next year?

    Make sure you all vote to crown me as the 2020 King of MardiGras. I will assure that next years event is as bountiful if not more as this years MardiGras Event. There are many things in play being stored for some heavy action. So, come March 2nd, at the 2019 MardiGras event be sure you set those event votes my way and you will be assured that next years event will have just as many if not a lot more giveaway items available, fancy good things to look forward to, long term planned, excitement filled, community oriented, and pertinacious decisions. *I meant to say Party-do-dacious*... :D

    Vote Kain Dewey Fall to be crowned the 2020 King of MardiGras, peasants of Entropia. :eek: :D
    Yeah, I said it. Best believe it is

    I will be a good King to represent the people, so vote for me :D

    Pre Parade To Do List:

    Divide throws
    -I have over 500 throws of various stacks
    -Each stack needs to be divided into 5 stacks for each Parade section
    a sixth stack needs be be held back for the afterparty
    -Court Members need to empty all inventory items into storage before receiving throws as to not mix in personal items.
    If you give away your personal items, it is because you did not do this.
    -Court members need to divide what they are given into a large stack for their section
    and two smaller but equal stacks, one for the rest of the parade, and one for the end of the parade

    Final Walk Through
    -Court Members should walk through the parade route at least once with me, preferably in a group
    -Mentally note the best areas to distribute throws

    Throw Procedure
    -Court should have a single chat window with #mardigras and #local open, at least.
    I am borderline on using the planetary trades or #rookie
    -Open trade, wait for chat post, if it does not come in a timely manner, substitute lesser throw
    if the trade is not accepted in a timely manner, move on
    -CHAT POST is a statement containing the item name, such as "I got a (item link)"
    -It is up to the parade goer to know they have to post in chat to receive throw.
    If they can not find or follow basic instructions, it is not our fault. Its not like this post was not advertised
    -all throws should be given out by the end of the parade, any that are left over should be returned for next year

    Free For All Warp Service Needs be Secured
    -Money in the bank for one free Warp RT>>Caly>>Cyrene>>Ark
    -planets will be removed if not necessary
    -other planets will be added if needed
    -there will only be one set of free warps, unless more tickets sell
    -Schedule is TBA, I figure two hours for parade and one hour for the Warp Service,
    so starting roughly three to four hours before the afterparty

    Small Step will be our DJ on Atlas Heaven Radio,
    Tune in and we can all be on the same station
    www.atlashavenradio.com

    Free For All Warp service will start at 20:00
    On my keyboard, the clock is period ".", and displays in system

    RT>>Caly>>(Cyrene?)>>Ark
    Lets find out how many clowns we can fit in a SF!
    Capacity is 50 people


    All one needs to is friend with Scrog, our director of transportation
    and be added to the team
    sto your lootables before summons

    Summons are how you get on the ship,
    you CAN ONLY be summoned from the planets surface.
    You must not be in Hell, A cave, The Gauntlet, The Thing, etc.

    There will be two summons on each planet
    Get chat info from Wizard, our pilot, if you are going to log

    There will be a free TP run once we reach Arkadia

    Come Early!
    Walk the Parade Route and pick your spots
    Quarry>>Outpost>>Harbor Island>>Harbor South>>Harbor>>North>>Bar
    Spawn Vehicles to define route at Outpost
    Sweat @ Outpost
    Gather @ The Mardi Gras Sandrunner @ Quarry @ 22:00

    There will be two groups of people at the parade.
    The PARADE consisting of people giving out items and vehicles
    THE Attendees, who will be stationary on either side of the route
    If you are handing out things, keep moving
    If you want things, stand still on either side of the route
    You are encouraged to spawn vehicles as long as they dont block the route

    If you can not attend, but still want to help
    Press B and go to Arkadia and buy a ticket to the afterparty. Every little bit helps.

    Many thanks to:
    www.atlashavenradio.com for providing the soundtrack to this universe changing event.
    Thank you Wizard and the XXXII for your outstanding performance and professionalism.

    Thank you to all the people I volunteered to help distribute throws,
    you made the difference.

    If the goal was to show a few noobs more about EU, spotlight Arkadia, and have fun, then it was a raging success. I can not really judge because I am not impartial. It could have been better. People I depended on let me down. Noob wrangling on a warp flight is always stressful. Ticket sales were not as I hoped, and therefore it put a time crunch on things. And the update and removal of dropping items were a huge impediment.

    That being said, people really rose to the occasion, there was very little complaining, and a surprisingly small amount of greed. People sure acted like they enjoyed it. Despite the requisite confusion that comes with not knowing what to do or what was going on, I had fun, and we had fun, so it was a good thing. I have not gotten a single complaint. That is odd.
