Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Preliminary announcement

Post by rjaguar3 » Mon Jul 02, 2018 10:22 am

I am pleased to announce that I will be hosting the 14th Summer Hiatus Challenge beginning July 30, 2018.

I am looking for volunteers for the following roles:
  • Editors: nonplayers who will proofread and fact-check questions, assess difficulty and balance.
  • Playtesters: nonplayers who will play drafts of the questions in advance and offer feedback.
  • Guest category writers: players or nonplayers who write categories (if a guest category is used, the author receives the maximum points available for that category).
Such a massive undertaking as the Summer Hiatus Challenge would be difficult, if not impossible, without your help--thank you! If you are interested in helping out, please post in this thread or send me a PM.

The guest category submission form is available at https://goo.gl/forms/obqX0JTsWLOBKPG32.

Happy to be a guest writer again, though others may prefer that I not contribute any topics this year :lol:

I'd be happy to write questions, play-test and edit as a non-player.

I'll be a guest writer. I'm willing to play-test too, if needed.

I've submitted questions the past few SHCs, and I have some more to contribute this season. And if you're looking for an editor or playtester, I'm at your service.

Working on my questions. The form doesn’t allow for pictures - I can do text only but if there’s a way to include pics, well that would be grand

If you have the picture(s) on a site like imgur, you can put the link in the "additional information" space for that question, I think. Whether the game-runners are willing to use questions based on pictures, I'm not sure.
