How to snag those elusive Togs!


<img:stuff/aj/28425/1319420234.png> Guard Reports: For every three (3) legitimate guard reports you make, you earn one (1) Tog. You must write "Community Service for Togs" at the bottom of your report for it to be valid. (Guards: After three legitimate community service reports are made, please send the names to [Stephen].)

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1319420234.png> Art Donations: For every twenty (20) different pieces of art contributed to Elfpack that are accepted and approved, gain one (1) Tog. Send a message to [Stephen] with a link to the artwork and where it was donated.
          Note: Art must sport quality and originality, must be uploaded to Elfpack, and must be free to use (see Elfpack Graphics). Submitting the same piece of art in various colors or with only slight variations will only be counted as one submission. Pieces that appear devoid of effort will not count towards total.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1319420234.png> Goofy Elfpackers: For every photo featured by Goofy Elfpackers Elfpacking!, you will gain two (2) Togs. The photo must appear on Mainstuff to be valid. Send a message to [Stephen] when your submission is featured to ensure you get the Togs.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1319420234.png> Featured Poem: For every poem submitted by a member and featured on Mainstuff via Elfpack Featured Poem, the member who submitted the poem will gain two (2) Togs. Send a message to [Stephen] when your submission is featured to ensure you get the Togs.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1319420234.png> Elfpack Jokes: For every joke submitted by a member and featured on Mainstuff via Elfpack Jokes, the member who submitted the joke will gain one (1) Tog. Send a message to [Stephen] when your submission is featured to ensure you get the Tog.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1319420234.png> Quotes from Elfpackers: Every quote submitted by a member and featured on Mainstuff via Quotes from Elfpackers, the member who submitted the quote will gain one-half (0.5) Tog. Send a message to [Stephen] when your submission is featured to ensure you get your Tog.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1319420234.png> Official Contests: Some official contests will offer Togs as official prizes or as an incentive for entering. These amounts are monitored by the Toggery Committee, and must be approved of before they are given.

<img:stuff/aj/28425/1319420234.png> Elfpack Suggestions: For every valid suggestion that is made and used by the Elfpack Council to improve Elfpack, one (1) Tog will be rewarded to the member who placed the suggestion.

An official page has to be a full length page to earn credit for the Tog, and creating multiple tiny pages instead of one decent sized one to try to get more Togs, will result in no Tog being given.

Q) Why do workers get Togs when I do not? That's not fair!
A) Elfpack's volunteers perform all the work to keep Elfpack running and fun, and do it for free. We use Togs as an incentive to keep them working. :) It's a form of reimbursement for the hours they put in here.

2012-11-21 [Stephen]: @Jimmy: If you had one featured and didn't get a reward, them PM me and I'll assign a Tog to you. :P

2012-11-21 [Deg]: Well my goodness. Just give yourself some Togs, for goshsakes. Everyone knows you've earned them! If you feel uncomfortable rewarding yourself for specific things, maybe just do it by a timetable, like a paycheck. You do active work at a pretty damn daily pace, so give yourself, I dunno, two togs a week. Or a few every other week, or something. Like a paycheck! Don't be lame, haha. <img:img/mood/257_1112669320.jpg>

Back to my original point about togs...I totally get that they're not totally relevant anymore, their primary purpose has pretty much been put on hold, but my whole point is just trying to get more people interested in more things. More activity around the site and whatnot. Even on a very small scale. So all I'm going to do, when I tell people they've been featured, is mention that they got a trophy coming (at which point I'll have already messaged you, [Stephen], about getting on that) and that they've also earned 2 togs and if they'd like to receive them to also message you. The one thing I feel bad about is that they always have to message you for these things because if you get bogged down with too many messages, they probably won't receive their prizes in a timely manner and thus may get discouraged from participating in something again.

But...I'm getting ahead of myself, haha. I mean, EP has to be really, really active for any of these things to happen and it's not there yet. Just...just trying to help.

2012-11-21 [Stephen]: x)
A paycheck, that's kind of funny.

Well, it still holds that there's very few things from the Tog Store that I don't have, anyway. x) I think offhand I could get one more Pet Slot, and probably another Unique. I know there's a Toggery Card I'm going to buy once it's released to public sale. :D

As to bogging me with messages, I check my messages at least once every day or two for new messages, and scan the content. If it's important (or quick), I handle it on spot. The only delivering I'm not really fond of is the EPA, because those take like an hour to do, and doing them in parts can end up with confusion, upset members, and occasionally trophies not being delivered. xD

Honestly, it's mostly things I need to actually respond to with more than one line, or something that'd require a decent amount of page editing that tends to get held up, most of the time.

It's good to try to help! I like suggestions. Also, I completely agree with you mentioning both Togs and their trophy to people. (:

2012-11-21 [Stephen]: Annnyway, I credited [HeAVenShallBuRN], [Cerulean Sins], [wolvie] and [sammie h!] for their missing Togs from GEE!

Granted, there's still missing Togs from the last couple of entries on Elfpack Jokes, in addition to a few other things..

From what I know, no one has had any Togs rewarded since Valentine Cupid, so I'll check past official contests and fix any missing Togs from those and try to get the Mainstuff Features also caught up..

2012-11-21 [Stephen]: .. or maybe not since before that. ;;

I don't see any official listing for ANY contest in 2012. So I'll just reward from every official contest to date since the start of 2012. >_>

2012-11-21 [Deg]: <img:img/mood/257_1112669482.jpg>

2012-11-21 [Stephen]: Well, that took more work than I had hoped it would. x)

All official contest rewards are updated, as are Mainstuff Features for 2012. Some people might have gotten double rewards, no idea. >_>'

Now to send out all the Guestbook messages! <img:>

2012-11-21 [Deg]: Wow, you got a lot of work done! <img:img/mood/257_1112669837.jpg> Thanks! I appreciate all the togs, haha.

2012-11-21 [Deg]: I nearly forgot I had competed in all those contests! T'was a pleasant surprise.

2012-11-22 [Stephen]: Heh, you're welcome. <img:>

I think next up on my list is getting the Giffie-Pet Store fixed up. Since I'm the only employee at the moment, I might retire the fairy for the time being and revert it back to how it was when members signed themselves up for pets..

I also need to go through the Tog Bank / Toggery Registered List and remove people who have been gone more than 100 days. x)

2012-11-22 [Deg]: Hmm, good ideas all around! <img:mood10_gif.gif> As always, if there's anything I can do to help...

2012-11-22 [Stephen]: Well, removing the Togs took me almost two hours. x)

The Tog Bank is nearly completely updated now. There's still some missing Togs, but it's really not my responsibility to track down every possible Tog every possible person has earned. I did the majority of them, at least. x)

2012-11-22 [sammie h!]: Is there a tropy for goofy elfpackers elfpacking yet as if so I haven't received it lol

2012-11-22 [Stephen]: I'm aware you haven't.

Yes, there is a trophy. I know that you know there's a trophy. I've been doing things, pretty much non-stop, for the last five and a half hours. The three people who were featured before you didn't get their trophies until yesterday. You'll get it before your feature is changed. =P

2012-11-22 [sammie h!]: Ok, I thought they maybe changing the design and that's why I hadn't received it yet lol. :D

2012-11-22 [Stephen]: Nope, the trophies are supposed to be changed in the future, but the Graphic Bosses are busy and thus they haven't been yet. :P

2012-11-22 [sammie h!]: Oh ok and sorry I have read the part I was meant to read and its ok, ill start over so I know x

2012-11-22 [Deg]: Patience is a virtue! Haha. <img:sutN.gif> [Stephen], you've done amazing work today. Major kudos. Now take a breather before you are forced to explosively implode.

2012-11-22 [Stephen]: That sounds like it'd be messy. <img:>

2012-11-22 [Deg]: Quite! <img:k-gif.gif>

2012-11-22 [sammie h!]: <img:> lol
