Why even try? Your sarcasm leaves some to be desired sometimes, futiles.

And since the 'official site' is not working at the moment, and looking for a registered traedmark of 'Achievement Fest' failed to produce a result, it would be best if you just kept to yourself sometimes. Go hijack another thread.

I have donated my time and resources to anyone that asked for them to try and actually pull one off (which they never do). But, I DO have an issue with people comparing a get-together with a full blown event. You want to do something like an Achievement Fest, and want some help, ask for it. You'd get it, and you'd get it from most of the people that actually make Achievement Fest happen. But even if you don't do that. Want to have a LAN party with people from the site that live nearby, DO IT. Don't talk about it. Don't consider it. DO IT. It is fun. It is rewarding. It is an experience that cannot be replaced.

You will end up with very strong friendships, far stronger than they can be just online.

But, make it your own thing. Don't compare. Don't elude to. Do it your way.

The people that put forth the effort to create something actually have an emotional investment in it. Think about your rant earlier with people blowing off this event. How long have you worked on it? How much energy have you spent? And it sucks that it isn't being respected like you deserve. So, see it from my point of view. How much time and energy and effort have we spent on our event, and would we want it co-opted by others?

You're absolutely correct that Achievement Fest is a very special thing. I have been attempting to go since inception, but have always had to sacrifice it for other pressing things. After missing this years, I told the wife there is no way I am going to miss another one. I showed her the site, and she finally 'got it'. So I am on the same page as you spiritually. I have local events often here in northern AZ with old friends, but expanding it to an online community was always a dream for me. AF made it happen, although I haven't been able to attend (yet!). I did have a fleeting thought about having/hosting/etc... a REAL AF on the west coast, but I am not sure really sure where to start. So a mini get-together is what I know what to do, and to recognize and honor AF was the hidden comment in that statement. It was meant as praise more than anything to the dedicated members of the Live communities that can make it happen.

So, sorry for the sour mood - work related and I brought it here. I normally can seperate the two. Thanks for reminding me (and other readers) of the great efforts involved in all the things we try to do as a community, whether it's a 7-man Kinect competition or a grande Achievement Fest!
Alright guys, just a few days until the end of week 5! managed to screw up the leader bonus by earning a bunch of 5 point achievements... but I know Cris is sitting around 22-23gs per achievement after 15 achievements - can you best him?!

Week 6 starts today! It's the strange one - 300 gamerscore in as many achievements as you can - I have about 54 lined up... I WANT IT!

I am tallying week 5 tonight, so far it looks close between Fsh and Cris...
