Overview
A basic review of how everything works ^.^
  • Hearts = Used for trading for Event Item Rares or Red Packets.
  • You can get Hearts by posting in the forums, playing Chance! or playing Firecrackers.
  • Any currency will carry over day to day until the end of the Event.
  • However, unused event currency will disappear after the Event is over!
  • Red Packets = Used in the Special Event Store.
  • Red Packets are equal to 25 gold (ie: a 100 gold item would cost 4 Red Packets).
  • You can get Red Packets by trading Hearts with Li Mei (me!) at the Shrine.
  • Unused Red Packets will disappear after the event is over.
  • Event Items (rares) will start being released on February 12th.

Event Currency Overview
Only two currencies this time. :)

Hearts are used to get Event Items (rares) or to trade for Red Packets. And Red Packets are used in the Special Event Shop. For more information - continue reading!

Hearts: How to collect them
There are three ways to collect these currencies:
1) Post in the forums.
You will earn 0.40 of a Heart each time you post in the forums.
Spamming will not be tolerated, even if it is an event. Warnings will be handed out the same as on non-event days.

2) Visit the Fireworks game every 15 minutes.
Every 15 minutes you can visit Lise and play Fireworks - you have a chance to earn between 1 and 3 Hearts each time! Good luck!

3) Visit the Chance! game every 30 minutes.
Every 30 minutes you can play a free game of Chance! - and you have the potential to earn between 0 and 20 Hearts! Alternately, you can pay a few Hearts for an extra game.

Red Packets: What are they? and How to collect them.
Once again we will have Event Store Currency for this event - horray!

Each Red Packet is worth 25 gold in the store. You can only pay in Red Packets if you choose to use them, however. You can't pay part in Red Packets and part in gold! In the cases where the price of an item isn't an "even" Red Packets, you may "pay" a little more or a little less while using Red Packets than you would using gold.

To obtain a Red Packet or two, visit me at the Shrine. I'm happy to trade 15 Hearts for 1 Red Packet!

How to Collect Event Items
Please remember that no event items will be released until February 12th!


Step One: Earn currency!
(To check how much of anything you have, just look at the top bar anywhere in the event forum.)

Step Two: Visit Vicktoria at the Festival Booth.
(Say 'hi' for me!)

Step Three: Click on any unlocked thumbnail and
solve the clue in the box that pops open underneath the thumbnails.
(If it's locked, it's not released yet!
If you have trouble solving the free clue - an easier clue is available for 3 Hearts. The clues will lead to somewhere on Menewsha.)


Step Four: Visit the page the clue is telling you to go to and click on the chocolates box.
(Scroll to the very bottom of the page. If you don't see a chocolates box there, you've gone to the wrong place! Try again.)

Step Five: Return to the Festival Booth and click on the thumbnail again to collect your prize!
(Enjoy!)



WARNING: On the last day of the event, don't wait until the last minute to collect your event items! Get all you'd like collected ahead of time!

Q. Is there a limit to how many event item rares I can collect? Do they have to be collected in a specific order?
You may collect as many of the gifts as you have currency for, as many times as you like, whichever order or item you like. (For example, if you only wanted to collect the third item, you do not have to collect the first and second as well.)

A. Please post your browser (ex: Firefox), browser-version (ex: 3.1), and operating system (ex: Windows Vista) and let us know what problem you are experiencing, if it happens in all browsers you try; etc. Posting screenshots may also be useful. We'll do our best to troubleshoot - but we need more information than just, "this isn't working. :c"

No - we can't retroactively award hearts, I'm afraid! But at least you're still earning gold for your posts. ;)

Hey there, the event looks very promising (it's my first one here). I'm really excited about it this far!
I'd like to point out a couple of things that I've noticed that I am not sure if you're already aware of..
1) Replying in this forum by regular and quick reply is acting a wee bit buggy - I got a couple of notices against double-posting / being told to wait 15 seconds before posting again when I had made only one post
2) The avatar that shows up in the top right of the Events forum but not on the rest of the site (even after saving and refreshing my avatar on the avatar editor page), appears to be from a few hours ago, plus the features don't look quite right - I'm not sure if this is specific to me and something that I've been doing or if it's related to the way things got coded for this forum's layout?
