YWSers of all ages, would you give your attention to me?! This July, staff is rewarding all members who can complete the Team Tortoise leaderboard (link) with a bright, new, shiny badge unique to this yearly event!

Despite our great efforts, there's not much racing to it, actually. One review per day is all it takes, but if you're inclined to do more...then by all means, do more! ;) There's no need to sign up anywhere as we can track your progress on the leaderboard system.

Do you think you have what it takes to be a wonderful tortoise? Staff thinks you do. Staff thinks staff does, too! At least, we hope so.

This would be a wonderful opportunity, if you haven't already, to join the Knights of the Green Room and/or one of the many fabulous clubs we have sprinkled among YWS. Who knows? You may catch the attention of secret societies, lurking in the dark. You may even be crowned a coveted title in a faraway Discord land. Who knows what could happen?

It's all up to you, YWSer.
Get to crawlin'.

Whoosh.

This staff thinks everyone can do this. This staff is actually just a stick that is very clean. This staff believes in everyone that they can win this awesome badge.

Let's make this happen, everyone! <3

@Rydia Hopefully those parentheses mean something math-related that's super cool meaning your percent of dedication to this goes over 100% for this and not two zeroes. :p

Does that mean that you need to review every day or just have a total of 31 reviews?

@MJTucker Glad you asked this question! Reviewing every day of the month is what Team Tortoise is all about. That should've been specified a little more clearly in the main post though Lumi did mention a review a day was all it takes! To answer your question, yes, it's a review a day for all of July.

Feel free to ask any other questions though and those of us who are around can answer them the best of our abilities, friend. ;)

Does this mean you might join? o:

Wish I could, but I can't. I'll be at a camp for part of July and won't have access to Internet.

This seems like the perfect pace of reviewing to go alongside Camp NaNo. I'm in!

Hello there, participants of The Great Tortoise Race! I've took some time out of my day to make a banner we can use. This is to show who the review came from, of course! >:D

Image

I admit it's a little small and I can resize it if it is! Just let me know if it's hard to see when posting at the ends of reviews. Feel free to use this if you want to! Have some Tortoise pride. Not only that, but have fun and good luck out there this month! The code for this is below if you're wanting to use it.

Code: Select all

Edit: This one is actually a more appropriate size even if it doesn't look like it here! Use this instead:

Code: Select all
