ND Challenge 6
PostPosted: Sun 26 May, 2013  Reply with quote

Welcome to the Sixth Normal Dream Challenge of LD4all!
A challenge to test and improve dream recall, quality and clarity of recorded dreams, as well as the ability to incubate non-lucid dreams. It also serves as an encouragement to read others' Dream Journals and vice versa.

The points have been calculated!

It has been a very long challenge. You (hopefully) mastered the four elements, with the additional fifth element within your dreams. Did you learn anything about yourself? Maybe you did, maybe you didn't, without further ado... here's the winner of Normal Dream Challenge 6!

It is...

Yev
With an astounding 216 points, this challenge's winner is Yev! Brute-forcing his way through with an astounding 75 normal dreams, 58 fragments! I'm proud of you (because that's pretty much how I won the last NDC)

The runner-up is...

James_UK2008
Right behind Yev, with 207 points, exceeding even Yev's normal dream count with 77 normal dreams, 10 fragments and 9 lucid dreams!

In relatively close third position is...

Marvin
With a respectable 185 points, Marvin is on the spot for the bronze, with the highest fragment count of 78 and a normal dream count of 48!



And the rest of the contestants:
(Name - Total Points - Fragments - Normal Dreams - Lucid Dreams)
4. Scipio Xaos - 120 points - 2 - 32 - 5
5. Mew151 - 65 points - 13 - 24 - 1
6. moogle - 38 points - 0 - 19 - 0
7. Magnus - 19 points - 10 - 3 - 1
8. Ghosteh - 15 points - 0 - 1 - 3
9. Sandra - 7.5 points - 3 - 2 - 0
10. geekboy - 0 points - 0 - 0 - 0
10. mr_Block - 0 points - 0 - 0 - 0

Detailed scoreboard

And that concludes the Normal Dream Challenge!
Next taskmaster will be Yev! I'll be waiting!



Disclaimer: The scoreboard is currently in flux, which means that I give the contestants 48 hours to suggest changes, depending on their performance, as in, if I had missed any lucid dreams, chainings, reality checks, tasks completed, you can let me know and I will fix the scores.

Also, I left out the subjective scores, which means I did not score for the most far-fetched task completion and the readability of your amount of NDs, LDs, chainings, task completes and such.

Edit: Scores have been locked.

History:
ND Challenge 1 - TM and Initiator: Dreamjutsu - Winner: Ysim
ND Challenge 2 - TM: Ysim - Winner: moogle
ND Challenge 3 - TM: moogle and Eilatan - Winner: MagykKatte
ND Challenge 4 - TM: MagykKatte and Ysim - Winner: Eilatan
ND Challenge 5 - TM: Eilatan - Winner: Fate
ND Challenge 6 - TM: Fate - Winner: ???

Rules:
Recall:
1 points per fragment recalled
2 points per normal dream recalled
3 points per lucid dream recalled

Techniques:
1 point per chain [1]
0.5 points per reality check performed, successful or otherwise [2]
1 point per recovering lucidity [3]

Challenges:
10 points for current task completed
5 points per late task completed [4]
5 points for personal challenge completed
5 points for current task completed while lucid
2 points per late task completed while lucid
2 points for personal challenge completed while lucid


Subjective:
1 to 10 points for providing a clean and well-structured Dream Journal [5]
5 points for the weirdest/most far-fetched incorporation of current task.

[1] - Chaining means that you wake up from a dream, but immediately go back to sleep and see either the same dream or a different one. The chains are cumulative for each sleeping session, meaning you can get several points for chaining if you wake up, go to sleep, see a dream, wake up again and go to sleep, see another dream, etc.
[2] - Every reality check you perform in a dream will net you a point, even if it does not get you lucid. Reality checks performed while lucid will not reward points.
[3] - When you are lucid, but feel lucidity fading and you use techniques suited for regaining lucidity (such as spinning around, rubbing hands or focusing your gaze on one object), every time you recover lucidity that way, you will get two points.
[4] - You can complete multiple late tasks (but not the same ones!) per dream (including lucid dreams).
[5] - I am lazy, you will be rewarded for making your DJ easier for me to find the rewardable points. Every contestant will be given points depending on the quality of the Dream Journal, once per week. Examples will be given in the post below.

Important changes!
Please read

Change #1

Because I am lazy and I like any contest or challenge being organised and easy to navigate, this challenge will be stricter in terms of how the contestants (that is, you) should present their dream journals.

I will not request complete overhauls, but I will appreciate notifications in your journals so I can give scores most efficiently and accurately.

As an example, this is how I formatted my entries in the last ND Challenge:

This is how I formatted my list of dreams, with a proper link to the DJ entry. It gives a concise overview of what the taskmaster should be looking for.

This is how I formatted my Dream Journal for the time being. It does not look different than usual, but I have added notifications that help the taskmaster navigate. I would REALLY appreciate if you did the same.

Change #2

I changed the scoring system a bit. I reduced the inflation by starting the lowest score from 1, not 5. I like it more that way. The actual value of the scores has not changed.

There are now a few more variables that are eligible for scoring, those are reality checks, lucidity recoveries and the dream journal quality (subjective). The latter will be subjectively scored by me, ranging from 1 to 10 points depending on how easy it was for me to navigate and score from.

My Personal Task may change before the NDC starts depending on whether or not I complete it for the LDC.

I like the rewrite for the main post. Makes it much easier to read and understand the rules. The only thing I'm not too comfortable with is modification to our dream journals. While I understand making the posts we put up in here more informative (like pointing to a current DJ entry with a link) I don't really feel like it should be the responsibility of the contestants to pepper their entries with flags unless they would like to, themselves.

I do intend to start formatting my NDC update posts like I have been doing for the current LDC as they are much more informative than my old method. You can see it here. I don't think I will be making much of a change to my DJ entries, though, so I kinda forfeit the well-structured DJ points.



Current LD goal(s): Find and chat with Cardia again

It starts when there are 10 signups, and then I will wait for 3 more days.

It does't look like more people are willing to join, so I will close the sign-ups on Sunday, at 21:00 EEST (Eastern European Summer Time). The challenges will begin on next Monday.
