I may have kind of sort of maybe missed the last party, and I believe a couple others did as well, so I hope I'm qualified to throw another party for the heck of it!

Date: TBA

Time: TBA

Place: Starting in Avery's Office, I don't know where it may migrate from there! Realm Vadima, as always.

Of course, anyone is qualified to throw a party. But here are some hints about throwing parties that I have learned through my attempts.

1)Choose a day that the majority of people would have off, such as a weekend, or maybe a holiday.
2)Choose a date that is far enough in advance that everyone has time to see the post, check their calendars and respond. I usually pick a date that is at least a week ahead of when I post the party announcement.
3)Don't forget to post a time, and the time zone. I like to evenings, since the majority of players are available then, most will have already eaten dinner and such. And, don't forget, we have pirates from all over the world who play and party, so it's very important to post the time zone.
4)well, you already have a realm posted so please ignore this one.

I also find that's it's a good idea to make sure that there are no other parties occurring on the same days as yours, and that your party has something unique about it, whether it's the meeting place, or one of the planned activities. But, don't try to schedual the party activities too much, these parties tend to just drift off into the spiral, and whatever happens, happens.

May I make another suggestion?

Give an ending time as well as a beginning time so people don't search in vain for the party after it has ended.

Aso, once the date, time, and place is announced, re-announce it with every post, so people don't have to go searching through the thread to find the final time and place.

The biggest problem is the moderation of the board. It could take hours for any post to show up, so, please, make one last post the day before, and everyone else, PLEASE don't respond.

It's one of those sit around and sigh about how the summer's ending parties. Like the last one but different. Maybe a bit of PvP?

Hello, I hope to be able to make it to your party. I am not 100% positive as to whether I will be able to yet, but will better know next week some time. My son starts up baseball this upcoming week and we haven't received practice scheduling info yet. And weekends are a bit busy to begin with, for my family.

But if able to, I surely will join in on the Spiral partying.
