I've been thinking about something we could do weekly, like CotW, to start here on KotWjcink but I can't really come up with any ideas beyond game of the week. Which, with only 6 console versions to choose from, might get old real fast.

So does anyone have any ideas for a new *otW thing-a-ma-bob?

Uhh, I’ll try ...

https://files.jcink.net/uploads/katamariontheweb/emoticons/jungle.gif got run over by a katamari that got away from https://files.jcink.net/uploads/katamariontheweb/emoticons/prince.gif .
The next day, nobody could tell https://files.jcink.net/uploads/katamariontheweb/emoticons/jungle.gif from https://files.jcink.net/uploads/katamariontheweb/emoticons/opeo.gif !

... uhh ... Jokes are a good idea, but I sure don’t think I’m funny enough to write them. https://files.jcink.net/uploads/katamariontheweb/emoticons/wacko.gif https://files.jcink.net/uploads/katamariontheweb/emoticons/lol.gif

So I'd been thinking about this, I almost immediately wanted to suggest a Game-of-the-Month and include more than the 6 console games, but now I have an even better idea:

Challenge of the Week! Yes, definitely cycle games, but that's not enough, we should encourage the residents of this forum to push against the other scorers of that week and potentially push our overall Hall of Fame scoreboards higher! (But primarily focus each CotW to the scores presented for that week, maybe only a passing mention of who the board's 1st place for that score is at the bottom of the post as a guide to surpass.) I think it could get some competition going and encourage revisiting the old games under the guise of just one quick round. [If you're anything like me that single 5 minute try turns into 20 and an hour.]

And if the particular week holds a challenge that is on two, or more, games then maybe just hold that many scoreboards that week. Just clarifying, I don't mean to run the 'Tutorial' or 'Money Round' score on every game, I just mean that I know for sure Katamari Forever has exact repeated maps from old games and I've never played Beautiful Katamari or Touch My Katamari to find out.

And a further thought is alternating between Katamari on the Console or Katamari on the Go (with PSVita and PSP games mixed with the iOS games) every other week and introducing the new challenge each week, but technically letting them run open for two weeks [until the next challenge of that type, on the Console or on the Go, is up] to allow everyone enough time to get a score in, and also to keep one of each kind of challenge open all the time so people who only have one kind of the game or the other never have to adopt a "oh this week isn't for me" feeling before they even check the forum.

Moonjake, I like the idea but for me, I'd never be able to take part. I don't have any of the systems hooked up anymore that can play a Katamari. And while I like the idea, I feel it may end up how CotW is, no one posts. No one has posted in the CotW this week, yet there's lots of votes. A thing of the week that requires a lot of effort might go no where. I've learned that in the past.

So yeah, I couldn't think of anything beyond silly little things like Royalty of the Week or Game of the Week. Level of the week? That again somewhat alienates people who haven't played all the games, so does gotw in a way too.

Oye. I can't come up with anything good.

So I've got a thought...dunno how easy it would be or if it's different enough than CotW, but here it is all the same.

So i love Cousin of the week, but as you've said a bunch, after a while everybody kinda knows who everybody else likes and why, so chatting about the votes can get samey or non-existent. However i think the concept itself is still really solid, but i think it just needs more variety!

Enter Item of the Week! (IotW)

i feel like it'd be pretty similar to CotW, but just with random items from across the games. and votes could be for many reasons! maybe you have a particular memory associated with an item? maybe it evaded you for ages and finally rolling it up was super satisfying! Maybe you've found a hilarious spot in the game where the item is used? (could even inspire folks who can still play the games easily to post some picks of their finds?) Or maybe you just love rolling up bananas and so you vote for that one.

we could also take it one step further and if available, actually show a pic of each option? just in case someone has't seen a specific thing before, or if the name isn't clear (that devil something musician guy from forever comes to mind)

Finally, it could be fun to try and connect the two, maybe some of us could write a little short something tying the CotW and IotW winners together? kinda like June used to(still does?) do with the Cousin winner?

https://files.jcink.net/uploads/katamariontheweb/emoticons/shrug.gif i dunno, might be a stupid idea, but there's my two cents!

I think the IotW could be fun! I was also thinking of maybe a song of the week?

Song of the Week sounds like the most inclusive idea so far.

Item of the Week was an idea I had but... there's too many. So I didn't say anything.

I like Item of the Week but how do we narrow it down? I mean, there's over 4000 items in the game, that's a ton to choose from.

Song of the Week isn't a bad idea either. Instead of the katamari condo, it would be the katamari billboard chart. https://files.jcink.net/uploads/katamariontheweb/emoticons/lol.gif

I had an idea of Category of the Week, but there's still a lot of categories in the collection.

I still think this is the best one yet.

You can, I just didn't hit the button at the bottom of the post, so I used the code button.

Oh, ok. Wasn't sure if it was a bug or something.

So if we did songs...

Would it be every song from every game?
