Not entirely, I'm sure. "Winter activities" could encompass the various winter holidays, from Hanukkah to Christmas to Kwanza to all the rest of 'em. So folks could put in whatever holiday they themselves practice, or whatever their characters practice, or a general mix, or nothing at all, I'd think.

Draw pictures of aborigines and kangaroos throwing sandballs at each other.

Toboggin!

...Did I spell that right?

Someone should do that for winter, that's so much fun! That's like the best winter activity...aside from "sit inside with a book and a cup of hot cocoa cause it's so cold only a freak would go outside".

I think I'd do that one ^^

Isn't it tobogan?
Faith is what credulity becomes when it finally achieves escape velocity from the constraints of terrestrial discourse- reasonableness, internal coherence, civility, and candor. Thus, the men who commited the atrocities of September 11 were neither cowards nor lunatics of any sort, but Men of Faith- perfect faith- and this, it must finally be acknowleged, is a terrible thing to be.

I thought a toboggan was a type of winter hat. *c*

Almost a week since the event went live, and here are the logs stats:

On October 31st, the spacejams site received 261 unique visitors, from 81 the previous day, though the site had seen a raise since the weekend, when I put up the first rooms. So yeah, the deluge was HUGE.

On November 1st, the site received 148 unique visitors.

On November 2nd, 54; on November 3rd, 52.

I assume after that views will return to normal levels.

For that single day in October, the halloween event main page went to #1 in the URLs, with 475 hits, followed by the howl sound, with 425, and followed by the rest of the halloween pages (as in, all other events, like the sitcom and battle royales, were pushed back).

This put the October visit average up to 45, 12 points more than in the previous month, and with the visits of just that one day!

Right now, November 5th, the visit average is a whopping 77, certainly far, far more than I have ever seen.

Now let's see how we drew public.

That 31st, the most visits the event got was from the Keenspace Forums, with an amazing 379 referrals from here! After that came Coyotzin's Nahast: Lands of Strife with 30+, and of all things, Google (maybe people looking for Halloween shenanigans?). Fourth place goes to Luprand's Netrek, with 20+. The rest of us are not really far behind here.

For November, the numbers change and Coyotzin takes the lead, with 50+ referrals (not surprising, if you remember him mentioning he averaged 210 daily visits in september). Having seen it once, the forums now only made 38 visits from here, and so fall on second place. Third still goes to Netrek, with 20+ (pretty consistent), and fourth to Roland's Role of the Die, with 10+. The rest of us, again, come pretty close to this, except yours truly, since I took down the October 31st update as I didn't want it to get inside my archives. Still, somehow I got one referral in, though Google defeated me with six!

So its is a pretty solid success, congratulations are in order to everybody, and here's hoping some of us actually snagged some new readers!

Hey, I've got at least ten slavish readers that will do whatever I tell them to, at least. :D

But, hey, that's all super great! Here's hopin' everyone enjoyed looking at our twisted creations.
