Edub's 99 Mining and Smithing Party
« on: February 06, 2018, 07:05:41 pm »
Hello guys,

I cannot believe the day has finally come where I will be able to become the first player to obtain 99 mining and 99 smithing. This has been a very long and challenging journey over the last 5 years. As much of an achievement as this will be for me I could have not done this with all of the help and support I have received from this community. Not only did I believe in myself but everyone else believed in me as well.

I am planning on having this event on Saturday February 17th at around 2pm EST. This date and time is not completely set in stone but based on the responses I received in the last post, I decided to choose this weekend to host this event. If something were to change I will update this thread accordingly. I will be dropping some items in the Seer's Party room and afterwards I am hoping everyone could join me in some mini-games like Castlewars and the Fight Pits. Anyone else who wishes to drop items can do so as well after I finish up.

I have some small asks from devs in spawning Bob (skillcape cat), along with an anvil and a rune rock in the Seers Party Room so everyone does not have to go far to see the show. I look foward to seeing everyone and I hope that this will be the best community event that we've had in years.

Countdown until the drop party:


Yours Truly,

Edub

Really hope I can make it out to this! Sounds exciting. I will bring up your request with the higher ups and see what they can do!

See you there, Edub, and everyone who will go.  As second active miner and smither, and p-mod, if for some odd reason I can't hotspot, big congrats.  If I'm there, it is too bad you can't lamp up to the 99's.  Either way....

I have a suggestion, you could login at that exact time the 2 nights before so those that aren't good with timezone conversions could login and estimate when they would be expecting you'd be up? Would be a nice way to ensure attendance.
P.s Also consider being logged in before and after to inform people if they were an hour early or an hour behind.
See you there!

Hey Dug, obviously in picking a date and time I tried to be considerate to those on the west coast in the US and some of our fellow players who are in Europe. In terms of figuring out what exact time this event would be for you, you can use a site like this for example. https://time.is/EST obviously if it is 7 pm in one timezone, and 2pm EST theres a 5 hour time difference. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for the tip, was putting in the suggestion for others, but don't worry about me, I'll probably be on for a good while to not miss it =)! Thanks a lot! :D

You could also embed a countdown timer on the original post....

Ooooh I just came back to the forums after a couple months. Looks like I missed this, but I don't see any updates about it. Was it delayed?

This should be happening this Saturday, unless something comes up.

Thank you everyone for coming today. It really was something. I appreciate everyone's support, even if you were not there, thank you! As I said in game I could have not done this without the community as a whole behind me. Today meant a lot guys, thanks to those who came out and thanks to those who were with us in spirit!!!
