RAPTURE Online Mirror [August 25]

Poll's closed; date chosen was August 25

There will be an online mirror of RAPTURE on August 25 to be held on a to-be-announced Discord channel. This date can change if enough people request (e.g. there's a nationwide political protest that everybody wants to attend, or the actual rapture takes place on that day). I anticipate starting at sometime Saturday evening EST and continuing for the next couple hours or slightly less than that. RAPTURE is only 5 packets and I'm not writing more, and we got through it pretty nicely at VCU in about that time.

Unless there is a truly apocalyptic number of signups, I anticipate playing this as a shootout. These arrangements are subject to change depending on popular demand. A signup link may be found here.

Now that I think about it, doing this Saturday morning EST would be pretty silly. Much better to do this afternoon or evening, but I am still open to suggestions.

Everyone signed up to play should have received an email to the effect of "this is happening I'll send a Discord invite Friday." If you did not receive such an email, let me know.

In other news, this is still happening and I'll send a Discord invite Friday. It's not too late to sign up!

Everyone who's signed up to play as of right now should have just received an email with a link to the Discord. Additionally, at least one person has expressed interest in spectating. If you've already played this and would like to quietly watch, I'll probably also share the link in the main quizbowl Discord because why not.

I forgot to mention in the most recent email but this'll start at 7PM tomorrow and continue until we run out of questions. If you aren't able to make it to part of the event, let me know, but you don't have to show up on time or stay for the whole thing. I hope to see everyone there!

Congratulations Moses Kitakule for winning the online mirror of RAPTURE! Thank you to all who were able to attend. Those stats should be correct, if they're not then I counted wrong.

This was fun to write and fun to read (my voice is probably damaged due to my shouts of "FIFTEEEEEN" but it was worth it). Because there is at least one more mirror that was recently declared to me, this set is not yet clear. Comments and feedback may be made in the private discussion forum. After the Canadian mirror, I'll wait a bit before I upload this set to the database, because by now the run of side event weekends is probably over. I hope everybody else had as much fun as I did.

Edit: fixed small error in score.
