First of all, I apologize for putting these results up late. It's been a crazy week, but the Finale Review challenge is now over. Unfortunately only 9 (!!) people total entered.

The results are:

FANGTASIA: 20
LOU PINE'S: 105
MERLOTTE'S: 63

Also, here were the Bingo results: 

FANGTASIA: 217
LOU PINE'S: 300
MERLOTTE'S: 210


So, with that being said, I knew that once the show is over for the summer, this community pretty much lays down and dies. And the Finale Review challenge was a perfect example - it was the ONLY one open and hardly anyone entered.

So I've decided I am going to end the phase a bit early. I apologize and hope you had SOME fun!  

And let's announce the winner! 

Team PlacingsCollapse )

Again, I'm very sorry! Sorry this phase has been such a cluster-youknowwhat. It certainly didn't help!

But come back next year! This is a landcomm which really only seems to work when the show is on.

CHALLENGE 9
FINALE REVIEW

Challenge: For this challenge, I want you to write an at least 400 word review on the season finale of "True Blood" - any of them are fine, so if you haven't had a chance to see "Evil is Going On" yet you can also do "You'll be the Death of Me" or "Beyond Here Lies Nothin'". Your review must be full sentences, no lists. It must be newly done for this challenge, so no copy and pasting what you wrote previously in your journal. You can focus on whatever you want within the episode as long as you are talking about that episode. So talking about how Eric  kicked ass in this year's finale is great, but talking about how Eric kicked ass last season is not (of course, passing mentions are OK, but your main focus should be on the episode. 

Note: If your review is too long to fit into comment you can either break it up into more than one, or you can post it in your journal and then post a link to the review here (just make sure it is unlocked)

Points: 20 points 

Deadline: You have until 11:59 PM EST Monday September 20th

Hope you all enjoyed the True Blood season finale last night! It's time for results for the Last Word challenge! Remember, you can check out points breakdowns over at the spreadsheet.

Anyway, the last word was spoken by Claudine, who falls under Other Miscellaneous Character! The points were as such:
 
FANGTASIA: 179
LOU PINE'S: 135
MERLOTTE'S: 169

The sidebar has been updated. 

A new challenge will be up either tonight or tomorrow. 

I'll also be removing anyone who has not yet checked in at their teams' posts. So heads up! 

One more piece of news: the new headers are in the rotation! Yay the comm looks so pretty :)

CHALLENGE 8
TRUE BLOOD BINGO

Challenge: It's time again to pick your players for the next True Blood Bingo! Bingo will begin Saturday 18th at 12 PM EST. (Please always make sure to note the time: I am going to try to switch up the Bingo times so people in different time zones/periods can play - this challenge will run all Saturday. This will not always be the case, so pay attention to the information in each challenge!)

Below the cut are a list of many True Blood characters, actors, episodes, etc. What I want you to do is comment with 10 of them. Pick whatever you like.

Starting Saturday 9/18 at 12 PM EST, I will draw 5 random names. Then every 15 minutes, I will draw 5 more. When all 10 of the names you have picked are chosen by me, you cry out BINGO (in a comment, I won't hear you in your apartment ;)

Points:
First Bingo: 75 points
Second Bingo: 50 points
Third Bingo: 40 points
Fourth Bingo: 25 points
Fifth Bingo: 20 points
Having a Bingo: 15 points 

(IMPORTANT: This is new! After Bingo ends, you will have three days to link me to your Bingo card if you had a bingo and were not around to call it/were too late in calling it. I will not be checking automatically. If you do not link me to your winning Bingo card by the deadline given, you do not earn extra points for it)

And also, 10 points for just participating! It just doesn't get ANY easier!

Rules/Deadline: Once you submit your 10, you can edit your comment. BUT!! Once I start drawing names, you may no longer edit your comment (you will be disqualified) OR comment with your 10, so do this soon!

Pick 10Collapse )

ATTENTION: I've taken out the actors names and the book titles - the Bingo list was getting a bit out of hand ;) All that's left is characters, episodes and places. If I've missed one, let me know! And remember: be diverse with your picks!

IMPORTANT

I've decided to keep this phase going until the end of it, which is October 31.

So I've tallied all challenges that should have been closed - I'll be keeping track of the score at this Google Document so instead of listing the people who entered at each challenge, I'll just be posting points totals, however you can check the spreadsheet to make sure you were given accurate points.

Here's a breakdown of all the challenges which I just closed and tallied: 

Points TallyCollapse )

The sidebar has been updated. I will be putting up some new challenges in the next few days.

Also, check in at our social community, loupines (it's not the team, don't worry) and vote for some of our members at the ontd_trueblood  awards!

ATTENTION ALL 
DEFINITELY_DEAD MEMBERS

Hey guys,

First of all, I want to apologize for the (again) death of this community. reallyally has had some family issues come up and is unable to keep the community. 

Over the next few days, I will be posting results of all the open challenges and ending this phase.

Now, in my experience with running this community last year, the interest seriously wanes when the show is off the air which, unfortunately, it will in the next week. So I'd like to ask you to honestly answer the next question for me. 

Poll #1615776 Next Phase

Are you interested in another phase of definitely_dead

Yes
35(85.4%)
No
6(14.6%)
I feel I owe it to you guys to bring back the community if you're seriously interested. We've failed you two phases in a row, so if there is another this year, I promise to make it a success. But please answer honestly. 

Again, I apologize.
