2009-11-13 [sweet.tx.tea]: December 5th. Eep. That's how I date everything. :/

2009-11-13 [Linderel]: I've seen that method before, but it makes no sense to me. :P

2009-11-13 [sweet.tx.tea]: *le sigh* Horrah for Texans and our strange method of doing things.

2009-11-13 [Kyrinn]: Texans got nothing on Alaskans in strange methods of doing things. *strips naked and jumps into a nearly frozen over lake* lol

2009-11-14 [sweet.tx.tea]: That's because in SA, we never get close to freezing lakes. :P

2009-11-14 [Kyrinn]: Ah true! But we also have 23 hours of light in the summer and boredom sets in quick. XD You never, EVER tell your kids to come home before it gets dark, because then you will not see them til around October. 

2009-11-14 [Linderel]: [Kyrinn]: Sounds like Finland - especially north of Finland - to me. :P Well, the light doesn't last quite that far into the year, but otherwise...

2009-11-14 [sweet.tx.tea]: Hahah! I have always wanted to witness this.

2009-11-14 [Kyrinn]: haha its freaky to go to work in the dark, then get off work in the dark, eight hours later. XD 

2009-11-19 [Duke Devlin]: WOW! I wish we had that much sunlight! (Meaning the 23 hours :P) I think ours might stretch to around 12 hours a day... In the summer. :P I think we're currently on about 9 hours.

2009-11-19 [Kyrinn]: its fun to get up in the middle of the night and hear the birds singing in the trees. at 2am. lol THough it also makes more combats wtih my son who thinks that since its still light out, its not bed time. >.<

2009-11-20 [Rice]: Yeah but if we had 23 hours of sunlight id feel bad for the rapists and serial killers..they wouldt catch a break would they. 8(

2009-11-20 [Yume Youki]: XD lol, good point

2009-11-20 [Rice]: And robbers....NO ONE THINKS OF THE CRIMINALS D8

2009-11-20 [Cillamoon]: Alright guys, what the hell are we talking about? Does anyone have any new contests they would like posted or any updates that I need to know about?

2009-11-20 [sweet.tx.tea]: We are talking about Alaska in Winter and Summer. Try to keep up? :P

2009-11-21 [Yume Youki]: AH!

We're not supposed to talk about this kind of stuff on official wikis!

*becomes a hypocrite* Shoo, all of you! Go off into your own little worlds! XD

2009-11-21 [sweet.tx.tea]: *scatters?*

2009-11-22 [Nioniel]: [Cillamoon]: for your Knight Me! feature on Mainstreet, the text says "Earn you Crest by proving you can uphold the virtues of the honorable Knights of old."

I think that you meant for "you Crest" to read "your Crest?"

2009-11-23 [sweet.tx.tea]: I noticed that about a week ago and forgot to report it. :/

2009-11-23 [Nioniel]: :)

2010-07-29 [Chimes]: Me? In charge? :P I'm the slacker. Sheep, m'dear feel free to help.

And suddenly I've turned this into a game of 'who can get there first?' :P

2010-07-29 [Nioniel]: It's your hat, it makes you look important. :P

2010-08-25 [*Phoenix*]: My contest's being featured!!!!!!??? O.O YAY!

2010-08-25 [Chimes]: All contests that go on here get featured. :P That's the point of this page. All contests that are listed on this page get put onto the Mainstreet Calendar, hence MC, in the hopes of getting them more entrants. It's a nifty little device. :P So every time you host a contest comment here and we'll feature it. :] It'll randomly appear on the right hand column thinger, underneath the search.

2010-08-25 [*Phoenix*]: I know what the MC is (and basically everything you just said), but my contest hadn't been put up yet and now it is so I was excited..........Way to crush my excitedness.....

2010-08-25 [Nioniel]: No crushing, just explaining. :P

2010-08-26 [Chimes]: I thought you didn't understand, what with the... punctuation. :P Sorries!

2010-08-28 [*Phoenix*]: lol. It's okay. *hugs [Chimes]* I was kinda teasing, too. I was just excited. ^^

2010-09-11 [Eyden13]: My old constet is complete and now I've got a new theme and entry number:

2011-01-04 [Cillamoon]: Nioniel, would you be so kind as to move all of the ones that I had posted to the "Deadline by Entry" area? I would appreciate it very much, thank you. I've had no recent activity but would love for them to be there in case participation picks back up around here.

2011-01-04 [Chimes]: Also, the EPRM shouldn't be here, to quote the wiki: "These are unofficial contests run by Elftown members."

2011-01-04 [Nioniel]: Lami - All set! :)
Cilla - Done :)
Chimes - Removed them. Only added them because of a forum post made by (I think) Silvie, stating that official events belonged on the Mainstreet Calander.

2011-01-04 [Chimes]: Yeah. I think they go on the actual calendar but not on this page. :)

2011-01-04 [Nioniel]: Good to know! :D
