A crash course in changing the world.

Hi there,why does evoke have all these dates?We want to play and it only allows us to update status and edit profiles. I'm more interested in the full mission...

I also want to play and i can't wait until the 10th for the 1st quest, or we just don't know how to play it?
Yeah! This is a bit tricky for me too. Do we really know how to play this evoke?
I honestly dont think we do but i think its about finding means to playing rather than waiting for the dates given.

Good question!

I think that this game is a game where a lot of the 'game' is what we make of it. As such, it is not an immersive world that you can explore yourself, passive-actively, like you can enjoy a regular MMORPG.

This is a weakness and a strength.

You are completely right Mathapelo - the Evoke might not pull you in with things to do, quests etc, and when that happens, and you havent made many friends on the site to communicate with - it loses its edge and many become uninterested. This is a real threat to this site in my opinion.

Take a look at this video which explains how we 'Win this game': http://vimeo.com/9765888
Thank you Raymond,i figured if i just sit wait i could be waiting forever..........
How long have you been playing?
Since yesterday, when this site launched. It's still very new. It's interesting - for some reason I can't stop thinking of this as 'serious business'. That is, I don't have the same mindset on this site as I do when I play 'a game'. What about you guys?

Mathapelo: You live in South Africa, right? Do you have a digital camera? One that can take video? If you do, I will give you a video assignment. If you complete it, I will give you points, as will many others. That is part of the game - mixing the online with the offline.

I have the same feeling about it,was just telling a friend that i should really try some of the challenges given on Evoke,i just feel i could learn from these challenges.so EVOKE IS EVOKING ME FOR REAL........
The thing about evoke is that it's a serious subject matter placed in the skeleton of an online game. In reality, what we're doing isn't a game at all.

Every submission of every mission is personally reviewed by a member of Alchemy's team. That's 6000+, easy. If we were able to just do every mission at the rapid rate, they'd be overcome rather quickly.

Stay patient.
It is a factor of the amount of information that they have to process.

But it's also important that everyone have time to digest each weeks mission. For instance the first mission is about understanding the mindset of being a social innovator, but most of what I've learned hasn't been through the first three assignments. Most of it has been through reading other people's entries and interacting with other people on this site.

The time factor is important to develop a community and a network, if they gave everyone all ten assignments at once then people would run through and get bored or pick and choose. This way you spend a week thinking about each part of the journey.

I totally agree with what you said Jeremy. Its amazing what others are saying and the inspiration that is just clicks away. Powerful stuff.

Very well put, Jeremy, and I agree too. I'm actually glad to have a week to explore others' contributions and digest what I find. If we could access all the quests now, it would be a mad rush for everyone to finish their own story -- this way, there is time built in that encourages us to meet others.

I love the way EVOKE draws me back in even though I have answered this week's questions already. Since I want to engage, I can either add more of my own stuff to my own blog (hmm... but that's like talking to myself), or I can look around, search on words that interest me, read other people's posts, and comment on them instead. Much better!

Pace yourselves. Don't burn out too quickly - lots of work ahead.

I just joined a couple days ago, and I have three weeks worth of choices to make, plus I think I will never catch up with all the contributions of others.

One thing I found confusing, as a late comer... The front page starts on the most recent episode, which didn't make much sense to me. I jumped into starting the mission even before I realized there were multiple pages to the current episode story. It might help if on the mission brief page, it referenced the story page, and maybe summarized the story so far. It worked well enough without the story, but it was a bit confusing to figure out what people were talking about.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ***tances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
