The weather grows cold, wet, and angry, the day grows short, and an orange moon hangs huge in the sky, casting an eerie glow on dusty old threads of the past. The time is at finally at hand for you, Star Army members, to raise these dead threads from their festering tombs using the the dark arts of THREAD NECROMANCY.

Rules of the event:

  • Post a thoughtful reply to any discussion thread that was started over 3 years ago (October 2016 or earlier) to revive the thread.
  • Setting discussion or "on topic" threads about Star Army are preferred but these can also be old approved submissions that need updates.
  • Don't bump old RP threads.
  • Only one post per topic counts.
  • Avoid one-liners. Spammy posts may not be counted at the staff's discretion.
  • Contest ends at Midnight EST on October 30th and winners will be announced October 31st.
  • Staff members (with yellow banners) may participate but cannot win the prizes. The prize will go to the next highest-posting regular member. FMs and GMs are not counted as staff and can win.
Prizes:
  • The first ten participants with over 20 posts necro'd will receive a free Star Army patch mailed to them upon request (NSMC or Hinomaru) - must be claimed by the end of November.
  • The winner will get to submit a character to Wes to get character art for with a value up to $50.
To claim your prize, post a list of your necro'd threads in this thread. The person with the most threads will win. It's OK to post more than once to show your progress as you go.

Some clarifications to answer questions we've been asked:
  • Submissions Reviewers and Character Reviewers are eligible to win
  • Adding OOC notes to a wiki page that doesn't have them and then posting in the approval thread to say you added them does count.
  • You can still get credit for posting in a thread that another member recently necroed, subject to the "thoughtful and not spammy" guideline. The reason for this is we want to encourage discussion and not just bumping.

I got to say, I'm kind of disappointed only two people participated, and nobody posted enough to get the free patches. But we did generate some really interesting discussion on stuff, which I'm thankful for.

I'll Admit I kinda of stop since a few people said all my necro's was kinda of bad. Will saw It was fun going through and learning some neat things about Sarp and also seeing some of my favorite creations the threads they came out and spawned from which was awesome.

I'll participate next year, Wes. :] I was avoiding doing so because I really enjoy it and go overboard, but that's not a very good reason in hindsight!

Honestly I was hoping to necro 100 threads myself this year but I didn't manage it due to time constraints. Also once other people started posting I tried to reply to all of their threads too (I mean the point of this was to have conversations).
