Just thought this might be of interest to some [tumblr.com profile] esamastation is holding a "random hikaru no go event" on tumblr

details below:

Random Hikago Event
Announcing the Random Hikago Event (to hopefully breathe some tiny bit of life to a pretty much dead fandom), between 8th and 14th of August, 2016. Or somewhere around that time. Entries can be whatever. We’re not picky. Just, you know. Hikaru no Go stuff, that would be nice.

Here’s some prompts to use, if you feel like it. It’s really not required.

1. Nigiri (procedure common in Japan at the beginning of an even game to decide who will play the black stones.)

2. Fuseki (arraying stones. this normally occurs in the first moves of a game so fuseki is often used as a synonym for opening.)

3. Honte (the proper move; a solid play that leaves few or no weaknesses behind and has a followup.)

4. Miai (denotes that there are two different options such that, if one player takes one, the other player can take the other.)

5. Seki (mutual life. in its simple form, it is a sort of symbiosis where two live groups share liberties which neither of them can fill without dying.

6. Atari (the state of a stone or group of stones that has only one liberty.)

7. Yose (moves that approach fairly stable territory, typically enlarging one’s own territory while reducing the opponent’s. because the typical yose occurs in the endgame, it is at times used as a synonym for endgame.)
Idea was to do a thing per day or something like that but seriously, Hikaru no Go is pretty much a dead fandom, I’m pretty sure we’d all be happy with like random scribbles and doodles too. Make origami, write some meta analysis, make a Sai-plushie, do whatever, post your masterpiece and tag it #random hikago event, and you’re in.

Hikago Day!

Not Ready For Prime Time (Fandoms), or otherwise known as Not Prime Time, is a gen, het, femslash, and slash multifandom secret fiction exchange for medium sized fandoms. The name was taken from the nickname of the SNL cast who were called "Not ready for prime time players" when the show first began. Basically? This is for the fandoms that are medium sized and are not megafandoms.


They're currently doing nominations, more information here: http://npt-admin.dreamwidth.org/45922.html

Hikaru no Go is already an approved fandom, but I thought I'd mention it here, and there's no guarantee getting Hikaru no Go if you sign up as an assigned fandom. But the more Hikaru no Go fans who participate the more likely there will be Hikaru no Go fic! And I know in the past there's been people who missed out as they didn't have 3 different fandoms that they were willing to both request and write for.

Not Ready For Prime Time (Fandoms), or otherwise known as Not Prime Time, is a gen, het, femslash, and slash multifandom secret fiction exchange for medium sized fandoms, including any RPF fandoms with under 20,000 fics.

It's currently taking sign ups from now until April 30th. There's a few people who have signed up for Hikaru no Go, so while there are no guarantees on being matched with that fandom, I thought it might be of interest to members of this comm. Here is the sign up form. If you need an AO3 account invite, please let me know - I have lots to spare!

Love to re-imagine your favourite characters in exciting and unusual situations and have the knack for writing exciting stories? Then come and join the fun at SMASH! and participate in our fanfiction competition!

Imagination is key! Just think about it…

How does America get his first date with England?
What would Kingdom Hearts be like if Kairi was the Keyblade master?
Where will the Straw Hats journey end?

Tweaking the canon or disregard it entirely.

Exploration - the definition: analysis of subject; travel for discovery
“It is said that the darkest hour of the night comes just before the dawn.” - Paul Coelho
To be in on the action, write a ficlet (<1000 words) or a short story (1001-7500 words) inspired by one of these prompts. Entries will be judged via online voting by the general public, as well as a panel of reputable fanfiction authors chosen for their skills and knowledge of a broad range of fandoms. There are no restrictions on what pairings can be in the fanfic, but content must be rated G or PG.

See here for more details: http://www.smash.org.au/events/awesome-events/fanfiction-competition




Love to have more entries, and having Hikaru no Go REPRESENT, would certainly be awesome! - international entries are very welcome (the competition is run for a Sydney Australia convention)

So now that we’ve gone back to our glorious beginnings – for those who have read later on, some starting questions (no need to rot13 in this post, spoil away!)

- Did this start lead to what you were expecting later on?
- How do you feel the art compares to later on.

Hikaru no Go Layout Competiton!

For the new Hikaru no Go Chat room, I would like to hold a competition for creating some new themes!

I've implemented a tool in Layout for the chat room - that lets us have a set up where users can select their own theme to be active, and I'd love to be able to implement quite a few!

The chat room is quite easily customisable by CSS - even the green dots that appear on the side of message can be controlled by CSS, and it's also possible to embed images in the layout box etc. (http://chat.gogohikago.com/demo5.php example demo test chat [will be deleted later])

To see what CSS is capable, please check out the CSS Zen gardens - a great way of demonstrating how powerful CSS can be. http://www.csszengarden.com/



Things that your layout should do:
- Keep the sidebar easily viewable, if needed (it doesn't need to stay a sidebar).
- Keep the pastebox below functional.
- Since we intend to have a variety of themes, it's ok for it to be optimised for a larger screen or a smaller screen - we want to have a variety of themes for different purposes.


Each person entering can submit multiple themes - so feel free to share that special WAYA/KAGA theme for that little something in your life, or a utilitarian ultra mobile-friendly style that's customised for being on the go. <3 Some layout's may want to prioritise our new pastebox so that it's bigger and more easily viewable on a large screen.


Submission Process:



You will need to submit a copy of the code, any relevant images and a screencap of the implementation as it works ideally. :)

Entries can be emailed to: queenie.eiz@care2.com



Due Date: May 25th!


On May 27th (AEST) I will be posting a poll for the community to vote on who should get first place.

Prizes:


1st Prize, as voted by the comm = 30 Dreamwidth points

Each entrant will receive at least 5 DW points - there is no cap on number of entrants.

Seperate from this - for each person who has a theme that is chosen to be incorporated into one of the selections available from the sidebar by the moderators (based on criteria we haven't quite discussed yet) will be awared a bonus 10 DW points.



FAQ:


Will this change the default theme?

The default theme will be selected by moderators to be one that we see as cross browser flexible, and is considered to be entirely separate from the competition.

Can you post an example of the current CSS for me to work form?

Yes!


Examples of the current CSS
http://chat.gogohikago.com/style/common.css <- this is the common file

http://chat.gogohikago.com/style/default.css <- this is the default theme, and what will be swapped around with the new themes.

How it works!
This is hosted by round-robin, where people sign up for a period of time for a particular volume.

Volumes would be defined by this wikipedia list, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Hikaru_no_Go_chapters , for the number of chapters that they cover, as people may be using different translations/publications or have version which combines three volumes into one, or being using the new pretty shiny version that reduces it to 20 volumes.

People have flexibility with how they host the reread for their period of time - the minimum requirement is a summary of what occurs in that volume, and some points/questions for people to respond to in the comments. They can have one post, or multiple posts - during their two week period. (Just we just ask that at least one post / if only one post occurs during the first part of the two week period!)

Some examples of what could occur - we could have one person summarising the arc in the volume, and choosing to focus on questions for the audience, such as character development in that arc. Whereas another person might want to post a summary per chapter, spreadout across their two week period, with screenshots and commentary on that chapters events.

Sign ups are currently restricted - you can't do more than two weeks in a row, and you can't have more than six active claims at a time. If you want to split a claim with some one and share the posting for that week - that's fine too.

On April 25th, I posted a cryptic banner, with a request for trivia questions....

Now some people have guessed what I would be posting today, and why, exactly would I need those questions. (P.s. me and very have been boosting that list. you won't automatically have all the answers. We have over 200 questions! *g*)



Well. You see. What I am going to be announcing today, has less to do with hikago day in a week, and more to do with our planned comm activities for the next year.

Today I am incredibly proud to announce, the NEW HIKAGO CHAT, and additionally that sign ups for the Manga Reread will be starting today!


http://chat.gogohikago.com/chat.php


Aja has been amazingly kind with letting us use her campfire account, but we've really grown into needing our own chat. The chat room we will have going forward is a customised one using the open source PHPfreechat code.

Customised? You might say. How so?
... well why don't you come in and /nigiri {odd/even} to find out? :D :D :D

There are some things that campfire does better out of the box, but we've tried to come up with as close approximations for the things that campfire does well, and we've also implemented some very fun things that you can't do in campfire.

Such as the ability to invoke the healing power of /fistbump and /hug. :D

Very has written up a detailed document comparing the two, but here's a quick list of features.

Worried that you might be boring everyone while gushing about Kuroko? Pop into the Go Go Offtopic to talk on the side!
Or tired of only coming into a chatroom while it's empty?
No worries! QUIZBOT LOVES YOU.

QUIZBOT EVEN HAS A SUPER SPECIAL GENERATED LIST OF HIKAGO TRIVIA QUESTIONS. Being by yourself just means, that all the points are yours!

(Quizbot does have some flexibility with what it will accept as an answer, but we haven't fully tested for it's flexibility.)

I've also implemented functionality to make it easier for us to install multiple themes which are controlled by CSS. We don't have anything but the default theme live at this point, but more information on this will be coming in the near future.


Please note, for some of the approximations:

- all logs are public, with the exception of Private Messages /privmsg {nick} (a new and exciting feature for us!), - hikagomods can erase the logs if something gets in there by accident, but it's best to be careful with confidential information online. (Campfire for reference also took logs, but they were restricted to campfire accounts.)

- We've also set up a basic forum - but this is only for purposes of being able to quickly upload documents/images for purposes of temporary sharing in the chat. Like campfire, it's not meant for long term storage!

- Because it doesn't autocrop long pastes to pop out into a new window, our work around is to paste in a side room and then have people pop into that sideroom to read the paste.

So now that, that's all out of the way, come on in and have a play!

 Its coming, will you be ready?

So! I have something exciting planned for Day -8, Apr 27th, this Saturday. :D

But, I need your help!

I would like to generate a list of trivia, questions & answers.

Questions and answers, should be short & simple, as well as safe for work! I'm aiming for a list of about 55, but it's totally ok if we go over!

It is also totes, ok for them to be obvious or obscure. Although, I think I need more obvious ones.

Also, I am leaving the comments unscreened - for those who are concerned, don't worry - I'm not concerned about the answers being shared here either. ~*Trust Me*~


Some examples of what type of questions/answers I am looking for are, as below.


"What day is Hikago Day?" => "May 5th",
"What star sign is Fukui Yuuta" => "Gemini",
"What colour is Ogata's favourite suit?" => "White",
"What middle school did Tsuda Kumiko go to?" => "Haze",
"What year does Waya Yoshitaka pass the pro exam?" => "2000"

[personal profile] qem_chibati
The purpose of this post is to help track down particular points in canon.

Start a comment with a question, and people will respond with an answer.


Of course some questions may have multiple answers or require scientific analysis to answer fully.
