Today I released a frequently requested feature for the MessageBot - a way to ask people questions and respond to their answers. The prompts extension lets you create custom prompts for a server :slight_smile:

(I tried to make a pixel art of chains since this has been called chained triggers before… but I’m no artist XD)

Day 13 is up! The tree building competition went really well, so its going again, but this time with snowmen! Build a Snowman, get server credit



lol i just noticed this 12-13 days late

I’ll think about doing one if the conditions are right

@Bibliophile (just a suggestion) having 2 people is a great plan when something needs to be cancelled, it could be easier for you to have them create some kinda of commitment so it’s less likely they’ll cancel last minute or something else (like not being able to cancel the event 20 hours before the event starts or something)

Would you like to see a contest/event hosted by me?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Maybe not?
  • Probably yes

If so, I’d like to do one on the 15th

Maple seeds. But oranges to heal. Many injuries, many oranges.

You forgot the Sunrise Hat.

Nope, I specifically left it out because it doesn’t keep you full anymore. It slows down your “food loss”, but doesn’t stop it. (Assuming standard world settings)

Day 19 is up! Take a picture with Santa!
