We have One Page, One Month coming around the end of Creature Feature, and the next Challenge starting then is very open in premise, too. Lots of sites can be made. Amassment tends to die down from around the end of October to January, and people go back to school in August, so having a longer marathon start in August and run through the end of the year makes sense. People will have more time to work on sites during their busy times.
I personally like the idea of running even limited Event ideas for six months, so members can participate around their busy lives. What we could do is run a couple limited events at the same time, staggered apart, so members who have time to finish early won't be bored, and can start a new event, and other members can still take their time or participate in either event later if they are busy.
So what we could do is start Challenge 1 in January and have it run through the end of June. Start challenge 2 in March and have it run through September. Challenge 3 starts in July and runs through December. That way the three overlap, and members can participate in all or any of the three, or focus on just one for a longer period of time if they are busy and need the extended time.
And of course we'll still have 1P1M, Clique Happy, banner trades, etc occurring throughout.
This. Perfect!! :D I'm glad that Creature Feature was as long as it was because I joined Amassment rather late and I'm still able to participate!
I also like that there's a lot of time to get things done and to echo others, I like seeing other sites as the marathon goes on.
Also I LOVE those plans! I'm pumped to see a One Page, One Month event soon! I know exactly what topic I'm going to do it on as well, provided I can actually keep it to one page. :P lol~
I'm really excited to see what the future event subjects will be. :)
