Recruiting Competition

Recommended Posts

Greetings all,

I hereby open the recruiting competition of October 2012!

It will run for a fortnight, beginning the 1st of October, and ending on the 15th of October (Australian time).

Points will be allocated according to the number of recruits you telegram. However, your points on a given day will be multiplied by the number of days you have recruited in a row, as a measure to encourage consistent recruiting.

For example, if one recruits for 5 days in a row, they may recruit the following numbers:

50, 20, 40, 10, 60, for a total of 180 nations.

Their recruiting points for the period would be as follows

(50x1), (20x2), (40x3), (10x4), (60x5)

50+40+120+40+300

=

550 points

Any days missed will reset your multiplier count

At the end of the recruiting period, the person with the most points will win the grand prize, and the one with the most recruits TG'd will also be rewarded.

If you can verify to me that a telegrammed nation has been successfully brought in to the region, you will earn 50 bonus points. A recruited nation successfully brought on to the forum will give their recruiter an additional 100 points on top of that, provided that their recruitment can be verified. Cheating in this area will not be tolerated and instant disqualification will result for anyone who is discovered plumping their numbers. To do so is disingenuous to the region building process.

All recruited nations must be recorded in the List of Recruited Nations thread

All participants should also use this thread to record their tallies, consecutive days, and successes, otherwise their efforts may not be recorded and they will risk missing a reward for their gallant efforts.

Any questions regarding the competition should be directed towards The Monkye.

Happy recruiting!

No worries Zeo, it's an optional competition.

Karland, I have you at +2 for region joiners now, and have verified your forum joiner. :)

Astarial, all of your region joiners have been verified.

Sweet news!

I'll go through all of those and confirm points that were scored while I was overseas in the coming day.

Woah, time travel!

Sad to see so few participants in the competition... but it's still arguably been effective in both region movers and forum joiners (from what I've seen). Perhaps we could make it a regular event.

It's not time travel. :P

Separated out main/subordinate sections by color.

Grammar. Who needs it?

After the comp is over I'll try to run a debrief to see what I can do to keep this level of recruiting up in the longer term, given the general success of the competition thus far.
