I received my package from storerboughtcreations!  We agreed on sending some extras.  Everyone took turns trying on the owl eye mask and doing their best owl impression.  Cheesy



Look at those teeny tiny stitches on the little owl keychain!  Shocked



And my very own crow!  So excellent!



I love everything so much!  Thank you, again, storerboughtcreations!  It has been great swapping with you.

Great package!  The food fight foods are so clever!  That book is fantastic, too!

I think I just finished up my package for storerboughtcreations!  I probably won't get to mail it until Thursday, though.

Send outs are in ONE WEEK!

I don't really pay attention to points either, but everyone is motivated by different things!  And since there are points, I want to make sure we have a logical and equitable system.

NERD NEWS UPDATE

I've gotten feedback from a few people about the new Research Project guidelines (20 hours OR three weeks).  There was always danger in assigning a certain number of hours to Research Projects, since crafting time is very subjective.  Each person works at their own pace.  A 20 hour project for one person is a 40 hour project for another.  That is why there wasn't an hour count assigned to Research Projects to begin with, and instead it was the more vague "three weeks."  In an effort to give players more flexibility and less restriction, we added the 20 hour option.  But this opened up an issue for those that put in significantly more than 20 hours of crafting time and end up getting the same number of points.

What this revealed to me is two things:  one, there is an overall problem with our point system; and two, people feel like they're not getting adequate credit for the crafting time they're putting into projects.  I'm going to plan a point system overhaul for next season, but things will stay as they are for the rest of the current season (which ends February 29, 2016).  

Feel free to message me with suggestions about the point system or Nerd Games structure, and any changes you think could be beneficial.

Thanks!

Ten more days of crafting time left!  

I hope to finish up my package over the weekend.  How's it going for everyone else?
