I'm really enjoying reading everyone's comments here. I was the staff memember who hung out in the Adventureland Bazzar most of the day, keeping you all out of the isles.
We lucked out by having a CM in that area who enjoyed her job but was very dilligent in her duties of keeping the isleways clear. At first I didn't get along with her, I viewed her as the "enemy" but I felt that was not a good mindset to have so I made friends with her and she had such a great attitude. We then worked as a team for the rest of the day.
We didn't realize that so many teams would be in that shop to look on that wall all at once, and then stay there for as long as they did. It did not take long for that area to become very crowded, so it was quite the challenge to make sure we were not disrupting the flow of the shoppers in that store.
I did notice a few teams took the opportunity of being near other teams and using the time to exchange postcards, that was smart.
I love working this event, I am a social butterfly at heart, I love saying hello to all the teams and seeing familiar faces.
Our main discussion after the event was how to describe this event to new comers, and people who may have interest in this game, so they are not overwhealmed on the day of the event. Some new teams did very well with the quests, yet some were frustrated and did not enjoy the event. With over 500 people playing, it is so hard to build quests that are challenging to everyone but not too frustrating.
I helped with grading after, and who used black crayon on their answer sheet? That was the most unique looking answer sheet. I had to chuckle over that one........ Some of the answers to the Bad Robot question were amusing as well.
