Hey you! 

Welcome to the Events Team in House of Misfits. You're part of the team that hosts weekly events to keep the community engaged and close. Events are important, especially in a mental health community, because it helps give our members a break from the world. It's a place to breathe and meet others who are going through the same issues.

Basic things about the events team

  • Your role is to set up events. Sometimes people will ask you to set up events for them (games, movies, etc.) That's totally fine.

  • The quota is one event every two weeks. It's okay if you can't, just let a Head of Events know so they don't think you just took the role and ran.

  • Anything you need, including any questions you have, goes to Head of Events team.

hosting an event process

  • Prior to the event, ping it in the Events channel, with time and date. If there is a prize, mention that too (will talk more about prizes later in this manual).

  • 15-30 minutes prior to the event, make a ping reminder.

  • IMPORTANT: DO NOT MAKE A PING THAT THE EVENT IS OVER. Simply type "Event is over" BUT DO NOT PING.

Prizes

Games

  • Winners of games are entitled to a prize of no more than 250 cake (only if it's an individual game like CAH or Skribbl).

KARAOKE NIGHT

  • All singers will get 250 cake each.

"Post a picture of..." Events

  • 250 cake for selfies

  • 100 cake for non-selflies

Example of this event:

  • Post a picture of yourself in your favorite shirt [250 cake]

  • Post a picture of your pet [100 cake]

Getting prizes awarded

When the event is over, send the list of people to be awarded by typing it out in the Events channel. Ping @Head of Events.

And that's all there is to it! Let me know if you have any questions!
