In about little over a month (Jan 23rd), GC will be four years old as a series. I don't think we've actually done anything as a group to celebrate these days, a lot like our missing R00Tmas almost every year. I think we should try to do something special for this, but I honestly have no clue what we would do as a community on these days which should really be looked at as special to some extent. Any ideas that don't involve trying to get me to give away free things in the thread? Posting this looong in advance since I'm fairly sure the time will be needed to first notice the thread and then actually think of something >.>

Wait...wait...nearly 4 years? THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING, WHERE'S MY TIME MACHINE? I need to go back in time and umm...fix some stuff In seriousness, not much I can think of doing, maybe have some sort of non-canon event to the side.
If you have questions regarding the DP system, Contact Me If you want to lodge a complaint about something, Contact Deshara If Des is unavailable for lodging complaints, Contact Pierre If you are hoping for sane conversation, Contact your Therapist
special adjective 1. better, greater, or otherwise different from what is usual.
So something that we can all participate in if we want to, and that we haven't done in a while or that we haven't done in such large numbers. Like maybe free-strategy-gamening. Like OpenRA, Zero-K, Warzone 2100, FreeCiv, Battle for Wesnoth, Planets Nu, etc. FFA or Teams or Tournament or whatever. Also art/writing contests/collaborations or boardgames or the like.
Really, anything inclusive and different and with more people than usual would work. We can even do multiple things one after another.

YEAH, LETS DO A TOURNAMENT!
"Cry, the beloved country, for the unborn child that is the inheritor of our fear. Let him not love the earth too deeply. Let him not laugh too gladly when the water runs through his fingers, nor stand too silent when the setting sun makes red the veld with fire. Let him not be too moved when the birds of his land are singing, nor give too much of his heart to a mountain or a valley. For fear will rob him of all if he gives too much." - 'Cry, the Beloved Country', Alan Paton
