Hum... perhaps I could try to be in this thing? If so I call dibs on the bathroom! Fwe he he... Kefka's ghost would have a blast making the people wait in line to use it... and no I would not use toilet humor.

The bathroom's taken, but we already decided "doubled" rooms are okay, so by all means go ahead, Ti- Phil.

And I just got word from McDuffies. As soon as we sort out who's going to be making the actual site, he'll lend the Spacejams password to that person so he can put it there.

I'll have my logo idea up in different versions by tuesday at the latest.

And I choose the cellar.

So far, theloserhero has taken the ballroom, I called the conservatory, and at least two people, a moderator, and a stray dog want the bathroom.

Anything else is fair game, I guess.

Also: do you want to use keenspace's updating system for setting up pages and all (In which case I'll asign you a year you can use) or you just want a folder and do it all manualy like Yarpsdat with Carebears invasion?

First one is definitely easier. Downsides are, you're stuck with pages design that I made and your first and last comic are linked with "Previous" and "next" button to the rest of spacejam which actually can be considered a bug, but I usually let such harmless bugs skip.

There can totally be a breakfast nook! I just thought rich people who usually lived in mansions had breakfast in bed... or had it in a veranda or a conservatory or something weird.

A verandah is a nice place for breakfast in the warm months, sure ...

A conservatory, on the other hand, was sort of the mini-concert hall. Not much of a place for eats.

On hosting:

I think it's logistically easier for everyone to have their room in their own site, with their own design, linking to a central master page and possibly to one another, like the Highwayman event was done last year (was it last year?)

If people are taking dibs on specific rooms, I stake my claim for the family chapel :)

Dare we use image maps in this endeavor?

For instance, I could have a clickable door in my picture that could lead into a central hallway where the ghost guide could point to several destinations... each linking to someone's site.

p.s. I don't know how to use image maps. ^_^

Me neither. I think we should just add the door (or something as simple as a sign saying "click here to go to the next room/main map" and make the whole image the link button. And then make it very clear on the page that you click on the image to move forward. Simpler.

Game parlors are for billiards, foosball, and darts.

If you're not RPGaming at the dinner table, you're not really doing it right. ;)
