      Spellbee's Splendid Competition 2017 Signups

      HEY! Initial signups are completed, but you can still sign up to join in the second week of the competition by posting here before January 21st.

      New year, new you! New comp, new 'Views! If you win or if you lose, don't forget... your shoes?... I'm not a rapper.

      It's 2017, which means 2 things: 1) we're starting our 5th year of survival since the apocalypse in 2012, and 2) it's time for another forum competition! Sooooo, if you've never been part of one of my competitions, check out my previous comps here, here, here, and/or here to see how it works.

      If you are interested in joining:
      1. Vote in the above poll to pick which dates work best for you.
      2. Reply to this post with:
      - What league you would like to join
      - Your average rate of lucidity
      - NEW: Your best guess as to your availability during the competition, on a scale of 1-5 (1 - incredibly busy, 5 - completely free)

      The rates listed by the leagues are suggestions, but if you're feeling bold, feel free to try a higher league.

      NEW: As discussed in the last competition, failing to stay active for the entire 2 weeks of the competition (unless some kind of notice is given) will cause you to be suspended from joining the following competition. Please don't join unless you are reasonably certain your can contribute for the entire length of the competition.

      I would like to join the Expert League. I've been averaging 5-7 LDs a week. I would rate my availability as 4/5. With the Fri, January 13 - Sun, January 29 schedule, I would be sleeping on a plane during my first night of competition, would be perhaps a bit sleep deprived/jetlagged the second night and would be going back to school on an unfamiliar schedule during the second week of competition. I'm not sure how this would affect my performance overall, but I would still be able to post scores daily. Oddly enough, I must be up for the challenge because I picked the Fri, January 13 - Sun, January 29 schedule.

      I will join. Expert. No idea anymore on frequency. As little as 2 a week sometimes, maybe up to 5 average (letting my routine slack too much), but the comp might bump that up higher. I should have a 5/5 availabilty this time. Sorry about my poor showing last time with the vacation and all.

      I'll join the beginner league! My averages have been really low, I only had 5 LDs in 2016, most of which were in the first half of the year. I should be completely free for any of the dates listed.
      2017 Goals: 12 LDs
      Successes: 7
      Remaining: 5

      Hello there! Tom here!
      I would like to join the beginner league as I am averaging 1 LD every week and a half.
      I should have about 4/5 availability for the first date listed, 2/5 or 3/5 for the rest.
      Good luck to everyone!!

      I would like to join the intermediate group. I average 2 lucid dreams a week and they have been fairly long lately. I haven't been make my a huge effort so I look forward to seeing where more effort will take me. Husband is working away from home for 2.5 months so I have more free time and don't have to worry about waking him with WBTB. Yahh I have lots of time to work on this. Any of those dates work.

      Nice! Another comp! Last one was awesome. Won't be able to do as well this comp but I'm definitely still joining! I guess I'll still be in the beginner league. Availability is 5.
      Jan 13 - Sun, Jan 29 would be best

      Sign me up for Intermediate! (I think I have been doing 1/week, and I will be fully available)

      Just looking at the poll, I'm getting the feeling people are very excited for Spellbee's competition and no one can wait!

      Guess I'll join as intermediate recently in dry spell, but with recent 2.5 lucid per week also 1.x per week overall average

      Be advised that I will be under duplex hunting, moving pressure (I voted for early since I have cable here at least thru months end)
      Sure LUCID DREAMS are all fun and games until someone loses a third eye.

      Good way to start this year! I am going with the Intermediate league although I am a bit overconfident there. Let's see.

      Availability will be around 3. There should be no problem with making an entry here now and then and counting up my points but my exams at university are around the corner which eats up quite a lot of time of course.

      I'm game, signing up for Beginner League again though. I have no idea what my LD/week ratio is, but it's low and random.
      Availability is a 2... I won't be putting in maximum effort, I might not update my score every single day but I'll definitely make my presence known when I have dreams to report.
      I'm creating animated Fractals!: HexaChronos
      Personal Records so far: Max lucids per day: 2 | Max lucids per week: 4 | Max lucids per month: 8 | Max dreams recalled in one night: 17
      Longest lucid dream: ~35min | Highest flight: zoomed out of common existence [WTF?] | Fastest speed: FTL | DILD/EILD/DEILD [X] | WILD/VILD [/] | MILD/FILD/HILD [ ]
      Interested to know how I got 17 dreams in one single night? And how I think I still could Improve? Check out my new and improved Dream Recall Compendium: The Dream Recall Compendium

      I want to join the beginner league, and my average rate of lucidity has been 10.7 LDs over the last 6 months.
      I chose beginner because I have a very low ratio of Actually Getting Something Done to Rate of Lucidity.
      As for availability, I expect a 4.

      I'll sign up for intermediate. Availability is probably a 3.5, since grad school can get incredibly hectic but January shouldn't be too bad hopefully.

      Another one for the expert league! Last couple of weeks have been about 5 out of 7 nights with at least one lucid. Availability will be 4-5 as in I will probably post most weekdays but weekends can get a bit busy sometimes.
