    so me and @Courtneyyy was having a lil' discussion, and we thought it'd be nice to have mini events for holidays that are not as celebrated as those as popular, such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentines etc, we came up with one idea of customizing spleef to a colour theme of each holiday, to bring some attention to holidays and make people not feel as left out (cause as you all know, on Meep we have a varying community and would like everyone to feel at home!)

    We wanted to find out what everyone else thought of this idea, whether you think this is a good idea, or possibly just a waste of time and thinking, but please, if you have a better suggestion please do say!

    (also if you're feeling lazy there is a poll up there so do us a favour and clicky clicky)

    But... Everyone is from the US and the staff are UK/Autistralia?

    What about July 4 (American Independence Day), October 31 (American Halloween, you didn't list it, though we had some half-ass event for it last year) New Zealand bank day (whenever that is because it has a fun name) or whatever it is y'all celebrate in the U.K.

    Maybe do seasonal events (no prizes or anything just give it a summer/fall/spring vibe at appropriate times, of course it's probably more work than it's worth but it might be cool)

    However, most of the events have been bland, uninteresting, and grindy at best. I can't speak for Easter, but Halloween and Christmas were hardly playable, except for the economy-breaking rewards. Maybe remove so much rewards and grindy aspects, by making players compete against each other rather than mobs or whatever. (For example a leaderboard of who's Killed the most mobs with the top 5 receiving appropriate collectible items rather than shattering the economy with a fairly easy to obtain unbreakable pickaxe)

    Tldr; make us compete against each other for smaller rewards.

    Like a summer spleef event could be fun!
    (Who's won the most games this summer or something idk, too easy to exploit but that's a basic idea)

    As the quote below me says, I think we should have seasonal decor around spawn, since it's around springtime. Instead of doing holidays that aren't widely celebrated for a day, we should have the 4 seasons winter, spring, summer, & fall/autumn.

    No significant amount of players lives outside the US, UK, or Australia
    Yes, we have that one Swiss guy. And the Greek one. And the NZ sponge. But realistically, we don't have enough others to bother about. Will you really confuse the 98% for the 2%, especially since their language isn't allowed?

    Oh wow something unique that doesn't shatter the eco?
    ah yes the other shoe drops

    Honestly the events existing at all seems pointless. I would never invite someone to meep to try an event, they ruin the eco for the current players, and waste the tech's time. What is the point @whoeverishouldmention

    Let's go with @NinjaRoxy

    the problem with the events AND quests is that they are the exact same every time. fetch quests are not fun nor entertaining, and events are just killing mobs and wasting armor for eco killing items.

    Well, we can't stick to mob grinding events as they don't appease everyone, I for one don't want to be spending hours punching mobs with a chance of something to drop, I'm just wanting to bring some attention to celebrations that aren't as widely celebrated as the bigger ones, and as for the eco, simply redecorating spleef won't do anything to the eco, as spleef gives a reward no matter what it looks like, I just thought it'd be nice to make those not living in the widely known areas, and for us to add in more celebrations to make meep seem as lively as ever, such as we could have pinks, yellows, blue and all bright colours in a spleef arena to celebrate the day of the dead!

    Competitions between players with custom item prizes would be fantastic, kind of like the old mob arenas where it was a swarm of people and staff flew around spawning in mobs of all sorts.

    wanna go?

    This thread was made for the purpose that we celebrate events that aren't so well known, this DOES NOT INCLUDE 4th of July as that is a known event and is celebrated in america.
    Also for the record I couldn't care because we have tea and no guns, so hah
