MES Wiki Initiative

Hi Folx
 
Please forward this to all lists and groups!
 
The National Coordinators Office in conjunction with Regional Coordinators and the NTA are very pleased to offer this new program.
 
**** MES Wiki Initiative ****
 
In order to offer both a more interconnected game, and a new way for talented MESers to earn prestige, we would like to present the Wiki Initiative!
 
The idea is that wiki-savvy members can receive prestige in exchange for building viable wikis for others’ characters, including images, links, and appropriate descriptions. The initiative will include some templates for wiki generation, and guidelines as to what constitutes a complete wiki.
 
If you’re interested, read on!
 
For each PC wiki, the creating player will be awarded 5 Regional Prestige in Non-Admin Game Support
 
For each 5 PC wikis, the creating player will be awarded an additional 5 National prestige in Non-Admin Game Support
 
For each Venue or Domain wiki, the creating player will be awarded 5 Regional prestige AND 5 National prestige in Non-Admin Game Support
 
The process for being awarded prestige is for the players to create Character, Venue, and Domain wikis using the premade wiki templates (see below) or by creating their own templates, provided they meet the minimum standard (see below). The creating player will then submit the link to
their DC, who will verify that the wiki meets the minimum standards. Once verified, the DC will submit the award in the Recommendations to Regional/National section of their report. The RCs/NC will then award the prestige in their respective reports. The wiki history pages can be used to resolve any questions over who did what and when, should the need arise.
 
Players can receive prestige for wikis made any time during the current chronicles. DCs should keep an eye on monthly caps, and batch up recommendations as needed to stay within the 30/month cap.

Phoenix FGoTM – January 18 – 19, 2019

Heya folks!

Our Domain out here in Phoenix is gearing up to bring you our annual
Featured Game of the Month, coming up January 18th – 19th, 2018!

We’ve got our location all locked in – the Holiday Inn and Suites
Phoenix-Mesa/Chandler. This is the same location we had last year, as they
were so good to us. Our event wizards wheeled and dealed to get us twice
the playing space this year!

For those who were unable to attend, the Hotel Website is below:

https://www.ihg.com/holidayinn/hotels/us/en/mesa/phxme/hoteldetail?cm_mmc=GoogleMaps-_-HI-_-US-_-PHXME

*Please do not make reservations yet*, as we are awaiting a code for our
discount rate. That said, we don’t have a limited room block – our discount
will be available as long as they have rooms available in the hotel!

We’re working on updating our website, we’ll pass on the link when we’ve
got that shored up. Of course, we’ll release more information as the Domain
decides on which venues will be hosted!

Hope to see you in Phoenix!

April game reschedule

The April game is scheduled during Vampire Ball, which many of us will be attending. Do we want to reschedule game to the second Saturday, second Friday, third Friday, something else?

We won’t be able to play at Nat20 those nights, but several players have offered to host at their houses so there are a variety of site options.

Please vote on the Facebook poll at https://www.facebook.com/groups/308108735878869/. If you don’t Facebook, you can also email your preference to AncientGambleDC@gmail.com

Thank you
