Things are now ready for Phase Three and I hope you are, too.
As mentioned before, this phase starts on September 1st and it will last 2 months.

Here's the new spreadsheet.

As you can see the teams are small but pretty even. Hopefully the one person difference won't be too big a handicap for Platypus. And there's still the fact that I will keep doing activities for the team in last place anyway.

If you were cut because you missed the poll or you changed your mind and you want to keep playing with us please reapply/comment here, we'd be happy to have you back.

Welcome to Anything Goes, an interactive community for games, puzzles, challenges, and more!

Please excuse the dust, I am still getting the community set up and looking nice. :)

The community is now open for applications. The first phase will begin January 1st, 2012. The time in between then and now will be used to assign people to teams, for everyone to get to know each other and set up their team comms, and for me to find mods for each team.

If you are interested in modding a team, please note that on your application! Mods have been picked for the teams now, but if you are willing to step up should another mod be needed, feel free to include that on your app.

If you would like to pimp the comm (you'll get 5 points for a pimp later on!), please feel free to use the following code:

Rules & FAQ


1. Be respectful to each other
2. No cheating at any games or activities
3. Spoiler Policy: No spoilers from episodes of things that have aired in the last 2 weeks, or a movie currently in theaters. Please try to be respectful of spoilers even from older media, and post spoiler warnings as appropriate as well.


Q: Is participation required?

A: Nope! At the end of the phase anyone who has not participated at all may be cut (there will be a poll option for non-participators to find out if they want to stay). During the phase nobody will be cut unless they withdraw from the comm.

Q: But then won't a team suffer if there are a lot of non-participators on it?

A: Nope! Team assignments will be based on percentages of activity participation rather than straight up team numbers. Eg, if Team Squid has 20 people but only 10 participate, and Teams Platypus and Puffin have 10 people each but all of them participate, then new members will still go to Squid since Squid has only 50% participation but Platypus and Puffin have 100% participation.

Q: So what is this comm about?

A: This community is similar to other land comms which you may have heard of. There will be games, activities, challenges, etc, that members do for points (and for fun!). At the end of each phase, the team with the most cumulative points wins! What do you win? Mostly just cred and self-respect. ;)

Q: If it's a land comm, then what -land is it based on?

A: Unlike traditional land comms, there is no centralized theme this comm is based on. Eg, tvrealm is a tv-land community, fantasyverse is a fantasy-land community, etc. Anything Goes is not based around any sort of fandom. This is why I'm not even calling it a "land comm," but an interactive comm. :)

Q: Are there any fandom-related activities at all?

A: You betcha! There aren't lots, but there are some. Many of the activities are just fun games or challenges and have nothing to do with tv shows or movies. Some of the activities are fandom-optional. For example, one challenge might be "write a story." This could be fanfic, if you wanted, or an original story with your own characters.

Q: So for the fandom-based challenges, what fandoms are allowed?

A: Literally any. TV shows, movies, books, comic books, video games, even bandom. Some activities may be naturally semi-exclusive, eg a picspam challenge would preclude books. But those are kept to a minimum.

Welcome to Anything Goes!

This is an interactive community consisting of games, puzzles, challenges, and more, with three teams competing for points. The subject of activities are not always fandom-related, and there is a focus on variety of activities! So there are some graphics challenges and some writing challenges, but lots of other things too.

If you want to pimp the comm (you get 5 points for it!) you can get the code here!

These are the teams:

Team Squid
Team Puffin
Team Platypus

Team Squid is currently closed. If you really want Squid, you can still put it in your comment, but be aware it may be a wait before you get in.

Fill out the following form and reply in a new comment to this post to be assigned to a team. :)
