Rules Reminder

Friendly reminder that any city you pick as a host for this event will have to be at least Senator if you need the prospective host to build a stadium or multiple stadiums. jphgolf4321 (talk) 19:52, 21 August 2016 (EDT)

Or the city would need to be in the old world. Camelfantasy (M e h) 20:09, 21 August 2016 (EDT)
No large stadiums will be built. If there is one there, we will probably use it. Ben6331 - Mayor of Ben Nation and Director of Towns and Cities since 2015 (talk) 08:49, 22 August 2016 (EDT)


List of events

When would the official list of events come out? If theres a PVP event, I think I am able to help you out with that category:D VernCow - Director of Steak and Cows and Milk (talk) 02:19, 22 August 2016 (EDT)

PVP arenas are not allowed in the new world. - soso123 - that one guy who keeps complaining about broccoli (Is this a page about copying polar bears from Sedna?)
Doesn't have to be in the new world lolVernCow - Director of Steak and Cows and Milk (talk) 08:48, 22 August 2016 (EDT)
There will be no large stadiums. PvP on the streets. Ben6331 - Mayor of Ben Nation and Director of Towns and Cities since 2015 (talk) 08:49, 22 August 2016 (EDT)
PVP on the streets? Sure..t I have a better idea if you need it... tell me via /mail.VernCow - Director of Steak and Cows and Milk (talk) 08:51, 22 August 2016 (EDT)

Central City

I'm pretty sure Central City isn't allowed to hold any events similar to the NTO and someone probably put it there as a troll. Camelfantasy (M e h) 15:34, 22 August 2016 (EDT)

On this one I agree with Camel, Central City's mayor is Frumple (who probably doesn't know what this is) and technically is an incorporated city. Skelezomperman (talk) (contribs) (email) 16:49, 22 August 2016 (EDT)
I'm removing the Central City bid. Ben6331 - Mayor of Ben Nation and Director of Towns and Cities since 2015 (talk) 17:30, 22 August 2016 (EDT)

Kenthurst bid

I would like to nominate my city of Kenthurst for this event. Kenthurst had a stadium (probably needs a revamp), has an Olympic pool, Tennis courts, a Boat Race course (which can be lengthened to go throughout the entire canal system), and a big city atmosphere. I am not in the position to renovate my stadium however, but I am willing to pay hundreds of $$$ for someone else to renovate it.--Aliksong (talk) 16:53, 22 August 2016 (EDT)

Alik, if you want to bid, please use the form I have linked to on the page. Ben6331 - Mayor of Ben Nation and Director of Towns and Cities since 2015 (talk) 17:28, 22 August 2016 (EDT)

New Sports

I suggest you add two new sports: spleef and horse racing! -Yellowitcher

I also agree with this! Vulpicula (talk) 16:48, 24 August 2016 (EDT)
Spleef: No
Horse Racing: Yes!!!!!
Ben6331 - Mayor of Ben Nation and Director of Towns and Cities since 2015 (talk) 08:15, 25 August 2016 (EDT)

Elecna Bay will be able to host:

  • 100-400 meter track events + Relay
  • American Football
  • Canoe Slalom
  • Rowing
  • Swimming
  • Marathons and such
  • Spleef
  • Judo
  • Archery
  • PVP
  • Road Race

But may i just ask how do you plan on making golf? - mine_man_

The golf will probably be more on the lines of miniature golf, also, road race, pvp, and archery are planned. Additional events will be looked into depending on the city's landscape. Ben6331 - Mayor of Ben Nation and Director of Towns and Cities since 2015 (talk) 11:57, 25 August 2016 (EDT)
Xilia and Formosa will bid only if spleef gets accepted :P -Yellowitcher
Spleef may be accepted, but I believe spleef arenas are only Senator and above. Ben6331 - Mayor of Ben Nation and Director of Towns and Cities since 2015 (talk) 13:48, 25 August 2016 (EDT)

Water Access

How big exactly would the body of water have to be? Vulpicula (talk) 16:48, 24 August 2016 (EDT)

A decent sized lake or river will work. Ben6331 - Mayor of Ben Nation and Director of Towns and Cities since 2015 (talk) 08:15, 25 August 2016 (EDT)

Update?

I put in my bid and my idea for the olympics a week or two ago and I still haven't heard about the status of it. May I please get an update? shadowboarder - every rose has its thorn (talk) 15:09, 29 August 2016 (EDT)

The rusults will ever announced tomorrow. Ben6331 - Mayor of Ben Nation and Director of Towns and Cities since 2015 (talk) 18:37, 29 August 2016 (EDT)

Senator rules

I swear freedon is senator and can't host it unless it had stadiums, in which case, that would mean it can't be hosted there. With a name like "Olympics" being given to the event I thought it would be hosted in a major stadium. mine_man_

^ as miney said, I agree, it should be a [Senator] and above hosting competition because anything below cannot make a huge olympic arena. --Allifarki (talk) 12:34, 13 September 2016 (EDT)
Wouldn't Mayor towns in SMPs be considered, too? From the rules:

"For construction perks (such as permissions to build inter-city roads and rail lines, transit hubs, stadiums, and airports), every district will be granted the perks of the next rank above it, as long as there is another district in the SMP that has that rank or higher. For example, if a 4-district SMP had 1 district at [Senator], 2 districts at [Mayor], and 1 district at [Councillor], then the following would apply:
The [Senator] is the highest ranked player in the SMP, and can enjoy their perks of building inter-city roads and rail lines, transit hubs, and stadiums.
The [Mayor]s can also enjoy the same perks that the [Senator] has, because there is a [Senator] in the SMP and [Senator] is the next rank above [Mayor]."

Granted, Freedon isn't in an SMP that I know of, and even if it were, there aren't any Senator cities nearby for it to ally with, so the rule can't be invoked for this specific case. However, something to be considered when deciding on host town(s) in the future. Pueffie (talk) 15:23, 13 September 2016 (EDT)
Wait, Ben said "No large stadiums will be built." And the rules page said that small community stadiums and gyms are allowed at all ranks, the town doesn't need Senator rank! So, I think Freedon can still host this event. Do not call me SOS. I won't save your ship. ;) (This page's usage is to prevent people calling me SOS.) (Today's song: Clarity)
Technically, road racing is just around the town roads, archery can be on some kind of shooting range, fighting can be in a small building with a fighting area marked out, golf is in a field, and boating is in the water. Therefore it is possible to not have any stadiums at all. Camelfantasy (M e h) 22:16, 13 September 2016 (EDT)
I just don't know how golf works in Minecraft. Also, he said it's fighting on the streets. Do not call me SOS. I won't save your ship ;) (This page's usage is to prevent people calling me SOS.) (Today's song: Clarity)

Date Conflict

Ben...is it possible you could move the National Town Olympics to another day, like the 15th, so they don't conflict with TacoBurritoAThon? The 8th is the only day I could really get in October that both myself and AP_Red could show up on. Skelezomperman (talk) (contribs) (email) 10:34, 24 September 2016 (EDT)

Well, both me and SoSo are both free that day. Ben6331 - Mayor of Ben Nation and Director of Towns and Cities since 2015 (talk) 10:37, 24 September 2016 (EDT)
Could you possibly find another day that you're both free on? I mean, don't forget that you're literally opposite each other on the globe. Skelezomperman (talk) (contribs) (email) 10:38, 24 September 2016 (EDT)
Then one week later? But I think Ben would need to wake up earlier to see me earlier :P - Do not call me SOS. I won't save your ship. (This page's usage is to prevent people calling me SOS.) (Today's song: Pity Party)
Well I just learned you're starting it five hours before TBAThon starts, so yes I'm going to drop my request for you to move dates. Skelezomperman (talk) (contribs) (email) 10:58, 24 September 2016 (EDT)
