Ladies, gentlemen, and others of 10000 Islands,
I'm proud to announce the 11th House Cup and Shield (mandated by NS185-1) will be taking place this coming month of January. This will officially last from 00:00 January 1st through until 24:00 January 31st (unsure what timezone it is, but whatever timezone Cerb's Accelerator 2 is in).
As usual, the competition will be held using Cerb 's Accelerator 2.0. If you do not have access to that, please PM the Minister of Immigration HumanSanity . Any recruiting done that is not done using Accelerator 2 will be void and not count.
For those unfamiliar with the rules, here's a quick recap:
The competition runs for one month. The competition will begin one month after the election of the Lyonesse East Senator. It is the LE Senator's responsibility to build awareness among house leaders and in house threads about the competition leading up to the starting date.
During the week leading up to the starting date, the LE Senator will remind House leaders to update their rosters (*whistles nonchalantly*). CTE nations will be placed in a separate section, and WA nations should have (WA) placed next to their name.
During the period of the competition, participating nations will utilize the Accelerator to contact new nations and recruit them to the Islands.
The Accelerator calculates a monthly point total based on the recruiter's performance. At the end of the competition week, the LE Senator will access the "Top Recruiters" page of the Accelerator to determine the points accumulated by each participant. The LE Senator will then contact the Immigration Minister to receive the total for each recruiter of nations that came to XKI for the duration of the competition. In addition to points for each telegram sent, the recruiter will earn twenty points for each successful recruit.
The LE Senator will then add these points to a House Grand Total, each participant's points being added to their House's total. The House with the largest Grand Total wins the House Cup. The LE Senator will then calculate a per capita total based on the number of Accelerator-eligible nations in the House. The House with the largest per capita value wins the House Shield. These awards remain with the House until the next competition.
Houses with Nations who send over 500 telegrams will be eligible to receive the House Sceptre. This award will be given to the House of the nation with the highest success rate, provided they are willing to share their telegram.
(Please note that unlike the House Cup and the House Shield the House Sceptre does not qualify as a House Competition that is mandated by law under the new House Achievement Plan (NS 218-4).

Please make sure your rosters are up-to-date, if not you may not be allowed to participate. PM me or post in this thread when you've updated your roster.
If you're new to the recruitment and our house system, here are some brief instructions on how to take part.
In September, the XKI will be hosting the Tenth House Cup and Shield Competition. This is a tri-annual competition whereby houses in XKI compete for the bragging rights as the best house in XKI. To be eligible for the competition, you need to have a recruitment accelerator account, which requires you to be at least 2 weeks old and must have at least 10 forum posts. You can spam post here to achieve the 10 forum posts criteria: 10000islands.proboards.com/board/15/taco-island
Recruiting is very easy because we have the accelerator.
Also, you will need to join a house (obviously). To join a house, you'll have to visit this page 10000islands.proboards.com/board/152/10000-islands-generations-houses and post in their respective threads to join the house. And you are all set to participate in the house competition.
