So the Halloween Festival has been done, and it was a success at most! What are your thoughts on it?

Did it go well?
Was it better than you expect?
Were you disappointed?
What do you think we could do better?
What can we add?
How can we organize it better?

Complaints?

Anything?



P.S. Whoever chose the last option is going down.

Well I thought it was awesome. :D

I wasn't really sure what to expect, or how it would work, and I was pleasantly surprised at how it did work, and furthermore how addicting it became.

I thought the organization was perfect to be honest, and the only thing that I can say in a possibly negative light is that the clues were a bit more based on signatures etc, than I thought they were going to be. In fact, I didn't actually know signatures, avatars would be clues! We were all too busy looking at the other guests posts to see what they liked and disliked! XD

Although not really working out the clues or guessing the killer, it didn't matter much to me. I still had a great time.

I'm sorry that a few people I would have liked to have seen there, couldn't join, but on the whole, the amount of people that posted was a nice little number, and it was pretty easy to keep up with on the whole. So although I feel sorry for the people that missed out (whether because they didn't want to join or couldn't make it) I'd like to see the same amount of people active next year. :teehee:

And that's about it really. :-)

*sigh* I really wish I had participated... :( I guess I can only hope that people will say they loved this enough so that we can have it again next year.

I thought it went great! It was hard for me to keep up at times, but I like that Kit updated the first post with important info. The clues did seem a bit far-fetched, but maybe next time we'll know to dig deeper! lol Overall, I had tons of fun and hope we get to do it again!

I. Loved. This.

Seriously, the Hallowfest was amazing. I even loved the fact that the clues went off of siggies and stuff, but the clues were pretty obscure, so that it could hardly be expected for anyone to ever catch on. I liked the challenge, but maybe some hints dropped in as to what the clues pertained to.

And I was sad that I'm so far behind time-wise that the killer was announced at like noon on Halloween my time, so I never stood a chance of being there. But of course, that's not the mods fault.

I will definitely definitely definitely participate next year. I'm already counting down for it.

It was an awesome Idea, but I wasnt able to be a part of it actively for most, due to the dates (I was on school for half of it)

The HallowFest was AWESOME!!! :swoon: I loved it! :bounce: I wouldn't change a thing... and I think it went pretty smoothly. :yes: Sure, it moved fast but the updates helped a lot so that made it just fine.... even if we never guessed the killer. :P

:hug: thank you all the mods!!

I really enjoyed this Halloweenfest! I didn't know what to expect but it turned out to be a lot of fun! :-D

Indeed, it was moving really fast and because of the timezones it was hard to keep up, but it wasn't impossible to be updated because of Kit's first page overview.

I do agree with the others that from the clues it was too hard to find the murderer but I guess that was because we didn't know what to expect.

Overall I thought this to be very well organised! The idea of a Halloweenfest is brilliant (*applauds again for Kit and all the other Mods*) I have a great time :)

Big applause to Kit and the mods! I had an awesome time!

My only complaint was that you should have thought of this sooner. :P

Oh yes, and the thing about the clues, but if you had thought of it sooner and we had done it before we would have known what to expect. ;)

Next year I think we'll be better with practice. :D

Ooo man, this was awesome! I really enjoyed being the first ghosty... :teehee: Though I couldn't go on as much as I wanted to, I still really enjoyed myself!
Oh, and my only complaint is that it moved tooooooo fast. But I suppose nobody can help that :P

I had a great time trying to guess what the clues could have meant and just hanging out with everyone being a weirdo. =P Definitely joining next year.

The clues were a tad out there, but it kept us interested. ^_^
