Please Register or Log in to view images Welcome to the brand new event from iPod touch Fans forum: Happy Halloween, today, October 24th, 2009. While it's not exactly on Halloween, you now have twice the opportunity of getting 'delectable' treats, so I suppose that works out nicely. This has been the product of a lot of hard work, so I hope you're duly satisfied with what we've worked on. The rest of the competition threads will be up momentarily. Happy Halloween is a new kind of event, a complete departure from Fantastic Friday. You will not post in this thread to win codes. If you want an application, you're going to have to do some hunting. Or should I say trick or treating? Please Register or Log in to view images With each search, you will encounter a variety of obstacles set up to entice your imagination. First, each search will lead you across websites, through videos, text, and photos. Second, you will encounter 'ghost members,' who will help guide you on your way to winning some codes.

After the competition is over, staff members will judge performance of the general assembly and team members, and some of the prizes will be given out to the few best. GENERAL ASSEMBLY The general assembly is the general forum population. If you were not selected in the teams thread in late September, this is how you participate. Users can chat about their experiences, give hints, or simply party it up in the iPod touch Fans' Unofficial IRC Channel, set up by Andy Huang. You can join it by connecting to irc.freenode.net and joining the channel #ipodtouchfans on your IRC client (ChatZilla, Colloquy, etc.) Alternatively, you can use the web interface to get chatting. Challenges for the general assembly will be announced in this subforum, so everybody can view them. Each challenge will have its own thread, so you can see what application you might want to be going after. TEAMS For the purposes of this competition, teams were made. Teams participate separately from the General Assembly and have their own prizes to win. These prizes will be more difficult to obtain, but are worth more, as they do require some teamwork. The team prizes will also come in troves, so they will be more worth the while. Team communicate in their own private IRC channels, staffed and watched by iPod touch Fans' moderators. Teams can connect to the IRC channels by the above method. Team challenges will be simultaneously be announced on every private IRC channel and sent by private message to all team members. The teams are Black, Orange, Green, and Cream. Regular team members will not be allowed to participate in team events. Please note that the teams do not mean anything save for this event. The IRC channels will immediately be closed after the event. RULES Members must immediately post that they've redeemed a code so staff members can remove it from the available codes and begin cleaning up from the event. Team members must do the same, albeit in their IRC channels. In certain cases, certain details must be given in order to verify the claim. Staff members have the right to kick members out of the competition at any time. No ifs, ands, or buts. Redemption of promotional codes requires a US iTunes account. For sake of shipping, winners of the Mass Effect skins and the Red Alert posters cannot live outside of the United States. Another prize will be substituted instead. If you are banned during the competition, your promotional wins will be voided, you will be disqualified, and the competition for the code will be given to another user. Users must not spam news about this competition ANYWHERE. TUAW had enough from last time. Please Register or Log in to view images Any users caught doing so will be banned and disqualified. To celebrate, Manic Nimrod has reworked his theme sQ and is releasing it next week. So... yay for Ryan.
