GTF House Cup 2017 - *SIGN UP THREAD*

HOUSE CUP 2017 SIGN UPS!

Hey lovely people! It's that time of the year again where gays from across the forum all come together and battle it out in the biggest annual event we have here- House Cup! In order to get things started and put together teams we need you guys to sign up! so please comment in this thread and let us know if you're in.


House Cup 2017 Hosts/Judges include:
Mattyk
Corrdorr
Tim.
KrisCross
Cobalt
Nab21
& Myself (Ethan)

As you can see this years panel features a return of two of last years magnificent judges: Matty and JT along side 5 new additions including newly appointed moderator Kristof, the triumphant trio of captains from Middle Earth:Corey, Nabeel and myself (Being champions of the house cup we command a high standard of entries ;) ) and to balance it out a bit we have last years losing captain Tim, we hope that this position allows him to see what a good entry actually looks like.

As you are all aware this year Jack will be stepping down from hosting duties whilst he goes and plays with ladyboys in Thailand has a busy summer. He has left some pretty big shoes to fill but I am certain that this years team of hosts and judges will not disappoint.


Please read this if you do not know what the House Cup is or how it works.


[Reveal] Spoiler: So what is the House Cup?
Hello! The biggest event on GTF will be back for a third successive year, after running in 2010, 2012,2015 and 2016. You can view the House Cup sub-forum from last year here. I think practically every active member of GTF signed up last year - close to 100, and I'm hopeful it'll be the same this year.

This year will largely be the same in terms of structure and time. However, a larger group of hosts will be used to ensure everything runs smoothy - from Popularité, to the challenges, to the theme selection.


So what exactly is the House Cup?

The House Cup is a competition that runs throughout summer, typically with four teams going up against each other - you may have noticed the tab next to Chat rooms at the top. There are three components to it: the weekly challenges, Popularité, and forum contribution. Points are on offer for all three of these, but the emphasis is on the challenges. Challenges last year included lip syncing, editing, writing challenges, and dress up challenges. Aside from the competitive aspect of the competition, it is a really good way to get to know other members - each team has a Skype chat, and I witnessed a lot of friendships form out of it last year.


What will the theme be for this year?

Previous themes include Harry Potter (2010), Legends of the Hidden Temple (2012), Avatar (2015) and Clash of Cultures (2016) - the new theme will be selected shortly by the hosts when we feel we have one that is going to be universally popular and is a theme every member can apply themselves to, as has been the case with the previous four. Please give your ideas and nominate any themes!


Can I be a Captain of a team?

Being a team Captain is quite a big deal - you've suddenly got 20 other members to deal with and you will get to know them. But it should be fun, as well. Last years team captains were Corrdorr, Tim., Muddylegs/Angel, and Quinn/Circles - they all did a fantastic job in helping to bring their team together. The House Cup simply does not work without captains that are enthusiastic and really want to win and engender some team spirit. Feel free to nominate any member or, if you want, put yourself up for nomination to be a team captain. Whilst its expected everyone will have a couple of busy weeks in summer, you will need the time and effort for this.


Can I be a Judge?
No

What are the challenges like?

You can find examples here! If you have any ideas on new challenges for this year, put them forward.

Creative Writing
Lip Syncing
Dressing up
Art


You do not have to participate in challenges. You may just join to play Popularité and get to know your team - that is perfectly fine. Members choose what challenges they might be interested in.

Let's get this party started! HERE is the current House Cup discussion thread, feel free to offer any ideas or suggestions you have here, and nominate some potential captains xD
