Welcome to Getting to Know You, NOVEMBER 2020 Edition.

 

The rules as they currently stand ( we all know most of you rebellious lot will ignore most of it, but one can try)

 

1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.

1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 

2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
3. Questions are going to be posted between 8:00 hours and 12:00 hours CET. ( Central European Time)
4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.

 

All HAIL WOOF!

Question November 1st.

If you had to live a week without internet, what will you do to keep yourself busy?

 

I've got plenty of DVD's to watch and mini's to paint so I think I'd be fine.

 

I would probably struggle to adjust for the first day or two though, I waste far too much time just mindlessly browsing the 'Net.

I would probably get more crafting done, read some things, & generally be more happily productive.

I have, of late, been spending less time on the internet. It has less interest for me other than emails.

Read, paint, abuse the Playstation, watch vhs and dvds. When I was in Austin, the rathole I was staying in often would lose internet for up to two weeks at a time, so this is something I'm somewhat used to. I've been having a paranoid little feeling that the internet might go down at some point in the next few months, so I've been raiding the Gutenburg Project for pdfs something fierce these last few weeks.

I have plenty of paper books, role playing games, board games, and miniatures to paint.  None of that requires electricity, let alone the internet. My manual typewriter is about to go in for service, though, so it would be best if I wasn’t attempting to work on any lengthy writing project.  Actually, the idea of a week without the net sounds rather appealing right now...

That would also be a week off work (wouldn't that be lovely....) so all the painting!!!  Also board games, maybe a couple games of Legion, actually get some reading done, and probably watch a few old DVDs (our "cable" is internet based, and our pvr is "cloud based" so none of that would work.

I'm going to go with what most suspect would happen within a day or two - go outright bonkers! 

 

Sure, we have books, DVDs, and I have more than enough minis to paint but my favourite time passer REQUIRES an internet connection (Elite:Dangerous is online only).  I've done the loss of internet for a while, it isn't fun. I survived and managed, but yeah. Not my kind of thing. 

 

Edit: now, if it were things like go without forums or messengers for a week, sure. I could do that. But no internet period? I like being able to look up recipe possibilities....

      Wiggles was a freebie with the Squealers core set, which are primed and ready to be painted. He was pretty easy to paint and a lot of fun.

      Reaper Challenge League 2022
      1) Intro
      2) How It Works
      3) Types of Challenges
      4) The Raffle

                         PDF Check List               Discord
                         
      Intro:
             Welcome to the Reaper Challenge League (RCL), a system that rewards fans for completing community-based events and challenges. This will all be conducted via the Reaper Miniatures Discord, where there is a system in place to track points and administer raffles easily (see below).

      THIS IS NOT A CONTEST ----- This is meant to be a challenge against yourself to see what you can accomplish, not a contest to compete in against other people in the community. So enjoy your time in creating stuff and have fun doing it with everyone else!

      Only Reaper minis will be accepted except for in the Freebie/Bust categories. You can use any paints for submissions, the only exception is the Limited Palette challenge.

      How It Works:
      Users can submit photos of RCL projects on the #submissions area on Discord and receive points depending on the tier of challenge.
      These points can then in turn be used to purchase raffle tickets which will be drawn quarterly, with a large annual raffle at the end of the year. Only Reaper minis will be accepted for submissions, except for in the Freebie/Bust categories. You can use any paints for submissions, the only exception is the Limited Palette challenge. Each quarter, a RCL raffle shall be held during the last seven days. This ensures that people have ample time to enter tickets or finish any entries so your points may be exchanged into tickets. On the last day of the quarter, the raffle will be drawn, and winners posted. At the end of the year a larger raffle will occur that accounts all accrued points points you have earned yearly (spent and unspent).  Terms and Conditions may change at the discretion of Reaper Miniatures at any time.

      Type of Challenges:
         All entries must show some sign of trying and not just throwing paint on to get some quick points. In keeping of the spirit of the league, challenge yourself and see what you and others are capable of. The amount of points that each one challenge will grant are in the () below, as well on the PDF for the 2021 chart. Reaper Challenge League PDF
       
       
       








      The Raffle:
           The raffle will happen the last 7 days of each quarter, This will ensure that people have ample time to enter their tickets or finish any entries they need to complete before drawings. Tickets will be pulled on the last day of each quarter!
          This will all be done on the Discord server, as we have a bot that is programmed to keep track of members points and how many tickets they have. We will use this bot to open the drawing and for you to enter and participate with the system. The drawing will stay open for one week before doing the drawing on the last day at a set time!

      Thank you, the team!

      Frequently asked questions
       
      Q: I am just wondering if one model can be turned in for two different categories? 
      A: In the spirit of the challenge, we would like it if you submitted a different model for another challenge. As this isn't a contest and meant to get people hobbying. 🙂 so you would just be doing yourself a dissatisfaction!!!!!
       
      Q:  Since the Reaper Discord moves so insanely fast, how will winners be notified? 
      A:There will be a channel that is static that is read only, for raffle winner and other announcements. 
       
      Q: Will the raffle draws be things that can survive through colder climates when shipped? 
      A: Not to sure on the exact prizes but this ties into your third question, I can hold things for you if cold climate is an issue and ship it at an opportune time.
       
      Q: For the Quarterly holiday - what are you looking for for Q1?  Like would just, any winter/snowy model be ok, or do I need to figure out what a MLK day themed model would be? 😜
      A: The rules are very loose, as this is not a contest and is meant for you and others to hobby!!!!!! So if you think its a holiday or a special day? By all means paint something and present it under that challenge category, as long as you spent time and effort into making it, I will recognize it. As an example if you wanted to paint something that was for your birthday! i'll count that!
