How long have you been on Voltra?

Since Day 2. So since Sept 2nd, 2017.

- Have you experienced the anniversary event before?
Yes. All of them. I haven't missed any events on Voltra although some of them I wasn't that active in because of rl.

- What kinds of items do you think we'll see be released?
They will all be related to the NPCs on Voltra. I don't know which ones, or how many but that's normally how the block parties work.

I only joined 6 months ago, but have been active for the past couple months I think? So this is my first anniversary event. Not sure what to expect as far as EIs go!!

I really want to try the item design thread, but first I gotta come up with some ideas! I already submitted a memory in the memory thread lol.

I knew you've been here a while, but didn't realize it was since Day 2! Congrats, old-timer! Good to know that the event items will all be NPC related. That makes sense and it could make for some interesting items!

I should probably answer my own questions too -

- How long have you been on Voltra? A: Not quite a year.

- Have you experienced the anniversary event before? A: Nope. Apparently I joined just after this event ended last year

- What kinds of items do you think we'll see be released? A: What Total said^^ because she said it - lol

- What parts of the event are you planning on participating in? A: Right now, I don't know - I have to check out the options more

@Aisukohi: Hi and welcome! A memory already submitted, huh? Good for you! It's usually interesting to see what items are suggested for those contests, imo. I may do that too. We'll see

What parts of the event are you planning on participating in?
I didn't see this one before. Oops XD
I'm probably going to do all of it except for maybe the item design one. I'm really bad at coming up with ideas for items.

Well, what kinds of items do you like to play with for your avatar? That's one way to think about items

That's a good point. I feel like I would like more ribbons. I don't know what style or wear on the body. We already have a few.

Voltie Posted 3 weeks ago ( 2020/09/2 02:13:51 )
Yes, this place as in Voltra. I needed a change of pace, and a new perspective, and an easy but active distraction for those times when I wanted it. And thank you.

I can't wait to see the ideas others put forth too for the autumn accessories commons.

I might participate in the other threads too once I read up on them more.

Ribbons can be fun, versatile, interesting, intriguing... they can be a lot of things! It's a good idea!

@Aisukohi: Yes, I need to read through the activities and see what happens in terms of my time and obligations, really, to see whether or not I participate in some of the activities. Regardless, it will be interesting to see what else is suggested

Thanks, but it's not a finished idea yet. XD
I'm glad that your question got me thinking.

Voltra has been so key for me. I feel like I always need an internet home to just get away and chill.

@Aisukohi Hey there. I didn't realize that you joined 6 months ago. I guess with COVID I have no more sense of time.
