Welcome to the Task of the Month forum, also home to the Task of the Year challenge!
With the advent of new features on DreamViews, users can look forward to a much more convenient way of obtaining their wing badges after completing the lucid tasks. Although it will still remain a necessity to post the important details of the dream in which a member has completed their task (in the appropriate month's task thread), they are now offered the benefit of being able to report their success directly to the Task of the Month group leader. This allows the group leader to directly approve of requests upon verifying that the member completed their task, which should allow for faster response times to requests.
All members will find a new option available to them under their permission groups tab in the user control panel. An individual may select a number of different tasks (either Basic, Advanced, or Yearly tasks) from the list of new usergroup options.
If you've already completed your lucid task, I'll detail how to go about requesting your permission in a few brief steps, which will be accompanied with a visual aid.
1) Click on the "Control Panel" link on the upper right hand side of your screen.
2) Under "My Settings" >> "My Account" click on the "Permission Groups" tab.
3) Select which lucid task you have completed.
4) Click on "Join Group" to go to the next step.
On the following page (after selecting Join Group) you'll need to enter a Request Reason. Here it is recommended that you enter the url of your post in which you detailed your lucid task. If you do not know how to do this, go to your post and look at the upper right-hand side of the post. There will be a number (ex: #26) and a checkbox. Clicking on the number will give you the url of the post in your address bar at the top of the screen. Copy+paste this into the "Request Reason" box.
After you have done this, click on "Send Request" and you're finished! The only thing left to do is for the group leader to review your request. This can in some circumstances take up to a day depending on their schedule. In the meantime we hope you enjoy the forums.
