Retro Week 2016: 25th April - 1st May -- Get involved!

25/04 to 01/05 is Retro Week on SONM!
That's right, in just over a month's time Super ONM is going back to the past for a healthy dose of retro gaming goodness! We'll be celebrating the games of yesteryear from Nintendo and beyond, with a great selection of featured threads and retro discussion. Of course we have our very own Retro Forum here on SONM where you can talk about the classics all year round, but we hope to see more than the usual faces joining in the chat during this event!
Image
To make Retro Week 2016 a success we want you to get involved. We already have several videos planned for our SONM Network YouTube channel, but we could make it even more chock-full of content throughout the week with more user-made videos. A retro game review, a look-back at your favourite games of your childhood, or whatever else you might have an idea for - get it recorded and send it in, and the video will be featured on the channel for everyone to watch and enjoy!

We'll also be featuring threads throughout the week by stickying them, making them global, and/or featuring them on our front page, as well as tweeting them out. If you have a thread idea, be it a poll on everyone's favourite NES game, a written review or a retro quiz over in FG&Qs, let us know! If you don't want to plan that far in advance don't worry though - just make the thread at any point during the week and we'll be looking out for great content to promote across the site!

Everyone who contributes towards Retro Week, as well as helping to make this community event a success, will also receive the Retro Week 2016 profile badge Image - so please do get involved!

Been waiting for an excuse to continue my Pokemon Red Nuzlocke. Sure, I'll bite.

If this had been announced before me and joe did a blind race of super mario 64 the other week I'd have actually recorded my end

I haven't made an actually decent thread in a very long time I'll probs do a retro-tinged version of the quiz I did a little over a year ago in GNC if that's cool.

SONM's Retro Week 2016 kicks off next Monday, and there's still time to get involved! Of course you can make threads at any point during the week, but a reminder to anyone wanting to create content for the SONM Network youtube channel that we'd love to have the videos uploaded and ready to go before the week begins - so don't forget to PM them over!

Damn, I'd love to be involved, but I'm still writing my uni dissertation. I might be able to make something over the weekend.

I think I'll do some retro game reviews for this week. I reckon it'll be a good bit of fun.
