Tenth edition of the posts in a day record

Post by Hunchman801 »

― July 12th 2015 ―

Record day will take place on Saturday, August 8th CEST (Central European Summer Time: UTC+2).

― July 2nd 2015 ―

The poll was set up. Please vote for all the dates you think you'll be available.

― July 1st 2015 ―

For the tenth time, Pirate-Community is organizing a posts in a day record. Here is a short description for those of you who joined recently:
Hunchman801 wrote:Each year since 2006, we organise a posts in a day record at PC. The whole thing is quite simple: it consists in posting the most possible messages in a predetermined time span of 24 hours. The goal is not only to break a new record every year or bring more activity to the forums, but also to shuffle our topics in order to bring new discussions for the following year.

This is not a spam contest, and useless messages are obviously not welcome. However, the special conditions during the record day will be the cause of a certain leniency, especially as concerns old topics, which can be bumped freely.
Last year we beat the previous record again with an incredible 31265 posts! Can we do better this year? That's up to you!

The rewards rise to the occasion: each post is worth 15 Tings within the given time span, and then come the bonus Tings: 1500 for participating, 1500 for beating one's previous posts in a day record, and 3000 Tings for the winner. For example, last year someone earned the insane amount of 64560 Tings that day.

As for the date, I would recommend a Saturday in August, but I'd like to hear your thoughts before I set up the poll.

Get ready to have fun! :partyhat:

My first record day. I'm anxious, if not excited.

But since it's my first, I would let the others determine the date.

Holy fuckin' shit, my keyboard is broken. Well, I guess I have to do the RD on my phone, I hope it will not overheat like the previous rd.

Oh, Hunch, don't forget to disable the "Last message" function. :wink:

Well you said the repair guy was coming in a week's time, that doesn't exactly take you to August.

Hunchie, you might want to unlock the “Lie to me” topic during the RD. ;)

Also, I might just rank up, which would be nice.

The first or second saturday of August would be great for me. Maybe the first one would be most ideal taking in mind the general summer holiday period in most areas.

It'll be the first RD where I'm not coincidentally on a trip so I think I'll give a 400-600 post goal a shot. :)

I'll try to reach 1000 posts this time...no all-nighter for me, I was completely dead last year...

Second weekend of August is the best for me...gotta gain a lot of tings.

Damn that's an impressive set of records. Regardless, I'd be willing to at least give a Top 10 spot a shot.

I would think it's not that farfetched to crack the top 10. Especially not in these dark times.

If we're basing it off that, then as long as you get a good 1000 posts then you probably could make top 10 provided not that many is that dedicated but we do have some real sportsmen for this event so who knows? :P

Especially Serza here who thinks 4000 is plausible.

The stats master kicks into gear within my brain...

According to last year's edition, sure, cracking Top10 spot is easy (you know, PluM reached less than 800).

HOWEVER, we only beat the previous record by roughly 1200 posts. You know why? Because in 2013, although only 3 people went beyond 2000, there were A LOT of people writing more than 1000 posts, way more than in 2014.

It depends on every year and people's availability for the record day. But beware! If you are aiming for a Top10 spot, you gotta be a bit dedicated.


A few advices:

- Disable temporarily sigs so your pages ca charge themselves faster.
- Prepare several pages in parallel.
- Put priority on the quick answer feature. This way, one less page to load!


You can also go for the lazy-ass 1 post participation and earn yourself a sweet 1515/3015 tings boost.

If they can participate, members you will probably see a lot (based on previous editions and current activity):


- Serza5 (between 3000 and 3800 if she's not ill, 99.99999% all-nighter, supreme champion and record owner)
- RayFist (scored up to 3300 posts, runner-up of the Queen of Scotland)
- Master (almost reached 3000 last year, while having to use a smartphone at times)
- Hoodcom (reached 3000 posts last year, entering the 3k club, with OCG, Serza5, and Rayfist)
- OCG (2014 runner-up with 3000 posts. Wasn't entirely available last year. Possible all-nighter)
- Shrooblord (almost reached 3000 posts in 2014 edition. Possible all-nighter)
- Saerleiya (around 2000-2500 posts average. All-nighter in 2013 AND 2014. Had trouble with Internet connection last year)
- Hunchman801 (around 2000 posts average, possible all-nighter. Got trapped by UK time in 2014 and started at 1 AM GMT+1)


They may surprise you:
- DandyGuy (reached more than 2300 posts last year. Went almost unnoticed due to his focus on one particular topic, The You Game. If he's in, be ready for the ultimate level of spam)
- Adsolution/Tech (opened a few high-octane/much-troll topics during RD 2014)
- Haruka (might have a bit more time than last year)
- Bradandez/PluMGMK/Imco97/Rolesfamily/Incognito/Harpic Fraicheur/Emshomar/Pirez/Keane (caaaaaaan theeeeeeey do it? Very active members this year overall)
- Matyuv (only posts emotes, but they really stand out during RD)


Well, that was quite the news feed.

If I forgot some of you guys, it means you are going to be very active on RD...right :hinhinhin: ?

EDIT: RECORD DAY STARTS AT MIDNIGHT GMT+1! IT CORRESPONDS TO:

- 11 PM IN UK
- 6 PM ON EAST COAST
- 3 PM ON WEST COAST
