I really, really wish I could, since I missed the show of solidarity on Monday, but I won't make this one, either... unless it's still going at 8-9pm Eastern.
I hope an enormous amount of people do make it, though, and stand strong!
You know, this being Virtue, there's nothing saying we can't have people host costume contests every hour on the hour starting at 5pm Eastern and going as long as anybody wants to get another one going. I think there's SGs who have weekly contests, but heaven help me I never kept track. (Besides I've been almost exclusively redside since City of Villains launched, and the action was nearly always in Atlas.)
Anyone here better aware of these things and know the SGs I'm talking about? If nobody else does, I can try to get in contact with their leadership and see if they'd like to coordinate efforts. Virtue's a solid choice in my biased opinion, because we rally costume contests like nobody's business. I plan to be in Atlas at 5 EST for support but can't guarantee I can be actively engaged or help oversee anything until about 8pm Eastern. (I'm full up on Virtue characters so I'll have to use my existing Paula persona, but she's with City Hall, so for RP purposes maybe I should see if I can arrange for more time-free-active-participation during the 5+ block...)DJ Pheonyx:
Want to see if Agent Crypto and DJ Templar want to continue on the theme through their broadcasts?Regarding /e protest:
My personal thought is that it's hilarifun to have the great big /e protest with all the masterminds' pets included. However I'm also not sure everybody finds it comedy gold versus confrontational/inflammatory... and we're still in the "Phantom Zone" of finding out what our real options are going to be. We want NCSoft to like, appreciate, and respect our love for City of Heroes. If anybody's personal feelings are on the line in a way that might negatively impact our efforts, now's an excellent time to treat those impressions with respect and conciliation...
This is a show of appreciation for the truly awesome work Paragon (and past Cryptic!) folks have done for us, so I'd personally like to see folks keep the focus on APPRECIATION! That takes a lot of work and coordination, but in my experience, the payoff is hugemongous. There's a laser-fierce power in maintaining the Focus of Cohesion, which is hard to appreciate until it's felt in practice -- like these threads!
Gah, this got long, I'm supposed to be working and am ultra-behind! Keep up the awesomeness, friends, see y'all soon. <3
