Hello all,

I hope you're having a great day so far! While we wait for the upcoming official launch date reveal on August 21st, I was thinking of ways to liven up the MapleStory2 Forum. With that said, how likely are you to participate in Forum events? -- not only those hosted by Nexon, but by the community as well. I've hosted contests in the past with prizes (e.g. Karma Koins) and would be more than happy to get the ball rolling on this. One example would be the Design a New Class contest, which would be graded on a combination of creativity and the artwork itself. Just trying to gauge the level of interest based on current Forum activity. What are your thoughts? Do you have any other ideas or suggestions?

Active Events:
Design a New Class Contest (8/19-9/30)
Maple Storyteller Contest (8/22-9/30)

    Sounds pleasant! Looking forward to see what you'll be coming up with.
    Sadly, most contests are about creativity so I'd probably not get very far, but hope you'll be making many people happy. :)

    Thanks @DanDK!

    Most likely I'll be selecting a panel of judges for those of you who aren't participating but would like to support in some way!

    I would love to see more community-hosted events as well. :) If you do decide to follow through with the idea, I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us!

    Events hosted by community are always pleasant experience as well as great idea to spend some time with other Maplers and liven mood on the forum so I'm eager to see what surprises you store up your sleeve. I'll definitely enjoy and support any incentive coming from playerbase.
    Kind regards!

    Based on the results from the poll, I'll be moving forward with a forum event!

    To start off, I'm in need of 4 judges for a Design a New Class contest and will be reaching out to several of you. Ideally the panel will include a mix of moderators and other members from the community. If any of you are interested in being a judge, please feel free to send me a private message with a quick blurb about yourself -- this will likely require a time commitment of up to 1 hour per week. Keep in mind that I'll be going through your comment history before making my selections, so I'll be looking for volunteers who are active in the MS2 Forum. As soon as I've confirmed the panel of judges, I'll be posting the event in FAN MEDIA. Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!

    Thank to those of you who voted thus far. :)

    While we wait for the official launch in October, I'll be hosting another forum event. This will be posted in Fan Media alongside my other contest. Keep an eye out for it. :)

    More events to come in the future!

    Hot damn, you're on a roll with these forum event. I hope what you're doing can inspire other maplers to host similar events for the community and best thing is that it doesn't even have to be for nx codes, it can be a portrait or drawing of the winner's character, a custom ugc template or whatever clever thing they can come up with.

    Hi @Sekundes_! I've kept this in mind based on feedback from the community, so that is why I decided to host the following: Maple Storyteller Contest (8/22-9/30).

    I hope you consider participating!
