In honor of Labor Day and because none of these feel Herculean, we bring you the Seven Labors of... well Labor Day I guess.

We're asking that everyone try to complete at least 7 of the 15 tasks identified below.

1. Comment on a review or session report
2. Correct an entry.
3. Create or suggest an RPG Geek related Microbadge.
4. Do some geekmodding
5. Make a geeklist
6. Post a file
7. Rate & Comment on games
8. Start a PbF
9. Start a thread in one of the general forums
10. Submit a New item to the database
11. Submit articles for a periodical
12. Update your collection
13. Upload an image
14. Write a review for RPG Geek
15. Write a session report for RPG Geek
16. Contribute here: GM Workshop: Call for Designs - Subscription Thread

Most of these aren't easily tracked (or it would be a lot of work), so this is on the honor system. Once you've completed at least 7 of the listed tasks between now and September 30, come back to this thread and say so. We don't have it yet, but there will be a microbadge commemorating your completion of the seven labors of labor day.

Thanks as always for your hard work and support of the geek.

If I make a geek list, does it count twice? Or do I have to make two?

And what is the missing 14th labor?

Corrected. Thanks for your help. Believe it or not, seven people saw this before I posted it.

I don't think it counts if you do the same item more than once, but just today I submitted 2 issues to the database, uploaded 2 cover images, submitted several new periodical article authors, added the articles for the 2 issues, and tweaked my collection. I have no life.

I like these challenges -- always good to give me a nudge to contribute a bit here. Here's my seven:

1. Comment on a review or session report.
Done.

2. Correct an entry.
Corrected/updated description for publisher Netherland Games and (consequently) for Bloodstone Press.
Also added website link for Bloodstone Press (pending approval).

4. Do some geekmodding.
Did a round of GeekModding. Queue wasn't bad: 93 images, 8 videos (I didn't mod any videos), 2 links, 4 articles, 3 data.

7. Rate & comment on games.
Rated and commented on everything in my collection (only had a few to do).

11. Submit articles for a periodical.
Explosive Runes (Issue 9 - Aug 2010)

12. Update your collection.
Added a few items.

13. Upload an image.
Uploaded image of logo for Netherland Games (pending approval).


This got me back to an occasional pet project of mine: go through this list: (Companies in current domain with no images) and hunt down company logos to upload. In the process, I also get the rep image sorted, and sometimes an official website link.

The science of history is a great bulwark against the stream of Time; in a way it checks this irresistible flood, it holds in a tight grasp whatever it can seize floating on the surface and will not allow it to slip away into the depths of oblivion

Steve, should we have a badge for those who finish all 15?

let's save the overachiever badge for next year

Well, really let's do a survey

Poll: Should we have a participant and an all in badge?
We currently have one badge for anyone who completes at least 7 of the 15 tasks. Should we have a second badge for those who complete all 15?
  Your Answer   Vote Percent Vote Count
Yes, that might motivate more labors from more people.

No, it seems like overkill.

I think just a platinum 7 would work. I also doubt that you couldn't create a great design.

I'm more disappointed that you aren't subscribed to me and haven't been correcting every typo I've been making.

Okay, so in the last couple of weeks I've done:

2. Correct an entry.
3. Create or suggest an RPG Geek related Microbadge.
4. Do some geekmodding
7. Rate & Comment on games
10. Submit a New item to the database
12. Update your collection
13. Upload an image

Turns out that just getting a new book in the mail was enough to require 2, 4, 10, 12, and 13.
