I was thinking the other night. Late night thinking is often dangerous for me, as once I get on a train of thought it will never leave me be. However, it's when I come up with my most brilliant ideas.
After doing some searching on the forums, I have realized it's been about one year since Traiturtle has been our Community Manager. Searching the forums, he first popped his head on our forums around May 3rd 2012. Despite our varying opinions on the state of the game, I think we can ALL agree that Trailturtle has been one of the greatest blessings to our community.
So I got thinking, we should do something to celebrate Trailturtle. I didn't want it to be just a costume contest or such. I want something that not only says "Thank you!" to Trailturtle, but applauds what he does by bringing the community together.
My idea? On May 3rd, 2013, let's dedicate a day to offering to help people out in CO, especially new players. Shout out in Zone offers to help people with missions. Ask if people need advice on how to put a build together, or how to play a specific AT. Offer newbs some tips for PvP. Ask if people want to team up for Adventure Packs or Comic Series. I'm sure there are other ideas you all can come up with.
Let us celebrate Trailturtle by showing our strength as a community. No specific time, let's do this for the whole 24 hours of May 3rd server time. No, I'm not expecting each of us to literally be on for 24 hours, I mean that if you are playing any time during that day, dedicate time to some CO volunteer service. Myself, I've got work during the day, but I plan when I'm on in the evening (starting 6 or 7pm server time), I'll be helping other heros out.
