      Cool Contest of the Month in April 2018

      Contest of the Month in April 2018

      Hello!


      Since the competition is over and people seems to be in their peak performance I would love to setup another friendly contest for better motivation in course of April.
      Unlike classic competition, it's not mainly focused on dream control and lucid activities. It is less time consuming and more casual, because posting digital dream journal entry on Dreamviews is optional and scoring is simplified.

      LIVE SCORESHEET


      Rules


      - There is no need for registration, just write your first post not later than 7th of April and you are in
      - Continuously post your results at least once every 4 days if possible in the contest's thread which starts on 1. April at 20:00 of your local time
      - Contest ends 1. May at 11:00 a.m. your local time
      - No cheating!
      - Use healthy self-criticism
      - Posting your dreams on Dreamviews DJ is optional, since lot of people dont record their dreams in english and in digital for, so it is less consuming to write it twice with translation, but if any interesting experience is involved, everyone apreciate your sharing
      - Recording your dreams in your own way of dream journaling is necessary for valid points (paper/electronic/audio), but no need for showing evidence. (Be honest to yourself)


      Skill level categories

      Please choose your level category to be to compete in group with competitors on your scale of level. The rates listed by the leagues are suggestions, but if you're feeling bold, feel free to try a higher league. You can switch your group during the contest (if you are too good, you can just jump to higher group or vice versa)

      Expert - 1 lucid/2 nights to 1+ lucids/night

      Intermediate - 1 lucid/week to 1 lucid/3 nights

      Beginner - less than 1 lucid/week



      Points categories



      Wbtbs (Wake back to bed)

      - For valid points do some activity like dreamjournaling, reading or better wake up from bed and do some activity that makes you more awake and aware from the usual groggy state in the bed (walking, sitting and reading, eating, stretching...) Choose what form suits your wbtb the best
      - 1 wbtb = 1 point
      - limit of wbtbs is 3 per night (max 3 points a night)
      - for valid points, you don't need to become lucid after wbtb


      Dream recall

      - for valid points dreams are recorded (written by hand, pc, audio record...)
      - 1 recalled dream fragment = 0,5 point (fragments from the same dream are limited by total 1 point and it can't exceed 1 point for the full dream from the same dream) Same dream means your remembering specified theme or connection in one dream
      - 1 non lucid dream recorded = 1 point ( memory of action or series actions in one dream)


      Lucid dreams

      - 1 lucid dream recorded = 5 points ( If it's series of DEILDs, it's 5 points for all DEILDs in total. Advantage for Deilders is in lucid dream time category)
      - semi-lucid dream is not counting as a lucid dream, but as non lucid dream


      Lucid dream time

      - one of the main pillar in this contest is to focus on the ongoing time in lucid state and knowing the precise lucidity duration, always keep this on mind
      - longer lucidity = more points
      - be sober in estimating the time spended in lucid dream
      - 5 minutes being lucid in a dream = 1 point

      1-5 minutes category = 2 point
      6-10 minutes category = 4 points
      11-15 minutes category = 6 points
      16-20 minutes category = 8 points
      20+ minutes = 10 points
      Maximum points in one lucid dream time is 10 points
      (for example 42 minutes dream time = 10 points)
      (for example 14 minutes dream time = 6 points)
      Every single lucid dream has its own points for lucid time


      Scoring template

      - please try to post your points clearly and simple but choose your own way. For example my system:

      Day 1
      1 wbtb = 1 point
      3 fragments = 1,5 points
      2 dreams = 2 points
      1. lucid dream = 5 points
      10 minutes in lucid dream time = 4 points
      2. lucid dream = 5 points
      22 minutes in lucid dream time = 10 points

      night total = 28,5

      contest total = 28,5 points


      Prices will be announced on the way

      CONTEST STARTS 1. April 20:00 P.M. OF YOUR LOCAL TIME, GOOD LUCK!

      I need some motivation right now lol. But to be safe, I'll sign up for beginners.

      Since I see you counted last night's dream, I might as well do the same.

      April 1st:

      1 dream recalled (NLD)

      Night total: 1 point.

      Comp total : 1 point.

      I'll sign up for intermediate. I usually have short lucid dreams. A 5 minute lucid dream is a long one for me! Do we get 1 point for time if a lucid dream is less than 1 minute long?

      Yes!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I'm actually in the holiday period!! Count me in for the Beginners area. Oh, by the way, this isn't an April fool's initiative is it? Or is this competition actually legitimate?

      Welcome dolphin! =) yes good point, if it is less than minute, it counds as a minute so 2 points if you agree?

      Welcome KarlaB! The timing was confusing sorry about the date, but the contest is actually legitimate.

      This is great! I just broke my dry spell and hopefully this will keep me going. And since the focus isn’t on dream activities I’ll slow down and enjoy the dream rather than rushing to get points.

      I’ll sign up for intermediate.

      Just to be clear, to get points for any type of dream, they must be recorded, however the journal entry does not need to be posted here, correct?

      April 2nd:
      1 non-lucid: 1 point

      Welcome welcome!

      Yes... That's right, because dream journaling is fundamental. For example I recalled about three dreams last night, but didnt record so 0 points for me =(

      I only remembered and recorded one more fragment yesterday so +0.5p

      Comp total = 2 points

      Nights 1 and 2:
      0 points - Dry spell still persistent... And I'm not joking when I say I can recall almost nothing.

      2wbtb=2p

      1d=1p
      1ld=5p
      5min=2p
      Night total=11.5
      Comp total=13.5

      Finally lucid, but somehow i knew that im dreaming and even told dc that this is a dream and used telekineses, i forget to do my initial ld practices which help a lot with deepening lucidity.

      Livescore sheet updated!

      For new players, you can use your dream journal and count points from 1. April even if you came later

      More fragments. One was of DBZ, and the other was about getting in an argument with a donut shop owner and, later, Po from Kung Fu Panda becoming a DJ.

      April 2018 Dream Contest - Night 3

      Fragments (x2) - 1 points

      Sub-Total - 2.5 points
      Competition Total - 4 points

      EDIT: Woops! Miscounted the points!

      EDIT2: Guess I technically started a bit later. Adjusted title.

      Alright =) welcome... About the points under a minute: i didnt realise that lot of people have ld lasting less than a minute so i think in this case it would be fair to count maybe 1 point less than minute but count it as a 1 minute in your total time, that would maybe motivate people little bit to hold the lucidity longer =) well i let the decission about this points on you and i will specify it in the next competition because i cant edit op now

      Im in! Beginners for me, im lucky to get lucid once a month.

      But first, I’m a bit confused.
      2 questions... how can you tell how long a Dream was? The best I can do is say that it was in a certain 90min period (usually between 6-7:30am)... any length I record would be a guess. I hope that’s ok.

      My second question is about points... when you say a 5min LD is 1 point, but right underneath it says a 1-5min LD is 2 points, which one is it? Or am I just reading it incorrectly? (I wouldn’t be surprised)

      Welcome finny! We count time points only for lucid dream and if you are truly lucid, you can observe time similar to observing time in reality. And for the second question lucid dream is 5 points + points for the lenght of lucid dream. Hope i wrote it understandable
