[X]PendaPalooza was the very first event users created… and it’s been going strong ever since! This is the 19th time players will come together to help new players get a strong start. Seasoned players play to find new investments, spend new pie, pick up achievements, and, for the first time, they can send [X]tra [X]eaves to friends and new players. START NOW
[X]PendaPalooza will run for
72 full over 100 hours. Players have from Friday February 26, 2016 1000am E.S.T. to Monday February 29, 2016 at 1000am E.S.T Tuesday March 1, 2016 at 7:00pm E.S.T. to connect with new players, reconnect with old friends, and build wealth.
[X]tra [X]eaves are extended through March 15, so you can continue to send and collect for two full weeks after the event!
This is the nineteenth event of its kind – a carnival of buying and spending that helps newer players dramatically improve in wealth, and older players find new investments, and allows everyone to broaden their networks.
This event is also QUITE a bit of fun! =)
There will be TWO streams open: one for those with UNDER 2,000,000 shares Outstanding (i.e., how many shares of your stock have been sold), and one for OVER 2,000,000 shares Outstanding for the more experienced players.
When [X]Pendapalooza 19 officially opens, you can post your ticker. You WILL NOT be able to post your ticker until the event actually begins. There is NO requirement right now to sign up, but you will need to be a member of this group once the event is underway.
In addition, several folks will be running [X]Pendapalooza NINETEEN (19) specific missions in conjunction with this event.
1. What is [X]Pendapalooza?
It’s an opportunity for many players, especially newer ones, to be bought, and for more seasoned investors to spend – that is, helping out others while finding new investments. It’s a positive, active, 48-hour buy-a-thon, and it’s all about paying it forward.
2. What does it cost to play?
Nothing. You don’t need to spend anything, but you DO need to be in this community and to put your ticker into one of two queues, which thereby registers you.
3. OK, what’s the catch?
Um, nothing. Seriously. If you don’t want to buy anyone else, you don’t have to. (Although you’ll probably score more sales if you buy. Don’t forget to use shout-outs, as they will really help your EA score, too, which will improve your dividend rate. Plus, it’s just good manners. 🙂
4. When does it run?
The event will start at 1000am.. E.S.T. on Friday February 26, 2016 and run for a full 72 hours ending at 1000am . E.S.T. on Monday February 29, 2016 Consult and compare local times here:
5. When I can put my ticker in to the buying queues?
We’ll open them just before the times above. Then you can expect things to get very, very busy … very quickly. (Don’t sweat it, though, if you’re not able to join in at the start. You’ve got 48 hours to get involved!)
6. I’m new to this whole [X]Pendapalooza thing. How long has this been around?
Ron Heigh (e)PWND and John Gushue (e)JOHNGUSHUE should be credited with the organization of the 1st [X]Pendapalooza along with collaboration from (e)ADRIEL, (e)EDUPRENEUR (e)REIGN, (e)BEN, (e)ALLIE,(e)CLATKO (e)FEEDTHEWORLD and(e)NORTHLANDFOX. The first one was held in May 2011 – and just for a few hours. We all had so much fun, we vowed to do it again. The full-day format soon followed. This is the 2nd time the event has been 72 hours! This is the 19th time this event has been done over a 5 year period. It is Empire Kred’s 1st community, member driven event.
7. I don’t have much money to spend. How can I best stretch my eaves?
Your buying strategy is up to you – you will no doubt see great advice in the discussion boards, from many different members – but you will also be helped by missions that will be targeted ONLY to members of this very group. This will provide a very large amount of eaves, so keep your eyes peeled. The idea, again, is for experienced players with large portfolios to share.
8. Do I have to stick around the full 72 hours?
Nah! We won’t!
9. Is there a Facebook group where people involved in this can hang out, share great tips and dynamic advice on social media?
Why, yes! Visit the [X]Bar group on FB right here:
10. Is there a suggested amount for spending?
Nope. Totally up to you, as always, about how much you want to spend, and on whom. Don’t forget, though, that this event is created in the “pay it forward” spirit, and it will likely be hard to resist getting involved. Even a small amount will help build your connections.
11. I’m afraid that people will dump my stock right away. Is this reasonable?
Selloffs are a hazard everywhere on the Avenue. We prefer to see this as a way of making contacts … and HOLDING them. Being a good investment should keep your shareholders around (did we mention the importance of shout-outs, and how they help your Empire Kred score and dividends?) for the long run.
12. What can I expect to happen to my price and account?
We’ll all have to see, but in every [X]Pendapalooza so far, most players have seen substantial gains in share price, number of shares sold and net wealth. This is especially so with new players. The increase in your portfolio will depend on how much you spend!
13. How do I see how many OUTSTANDING Shares that I have sold of my stock to determine which thread to post in?
By clicking on your Social Stock profile on Empire Kred.
