There is a building on my campus that is decidedly labyrinthine.

This task will be AweXome!

I created a much more interesting ariadne based task some weeks back and they used this?

surely there must be an official list of tasks
and a failed list of tasks?

are new tasks chosen by committee?
or voted on?
either way
unorthodox tasks could be supported by sf0

Tasks are submitted by the player base, and depending on which ones are popular, SSI approves them and they appear on the official list.

However, tasks that are not approved by SSI can be completed unofficially, in which case people usually vote for it by voting for your player photograph.

The task submission page does note that tasks are chosen by a rotating board whose membership varies a little bit depending on when you visit it. And I have no idea who Nasia is, but she frightens me.

As it is of course impossible to see the tasks that haven't been approved yet, the alternative approach for Level Zero praxes is to explore the [i]retired[/i] tasks, which include some pretty awesome stuff.

Great first tast for Oman Zero team/ perhaps combining two tasks? +1
posted by Sundroplets on November 8th, 2008 8:11 PM

Since becoming party of SFØ and starting ØMN I have been trying to galvanize the troops to let the fun begin. It's been slow going, but I think the key is to organize a task for all interested newbies.

While there isn't an actual labyrinth in Oman, many of the forts and souks are described as "labyrinth like". However a maze is just a place you can get lost in, a labyrinth as indicated from my research says they are "Ancient Paths of Wisdom and Peace". I want to try to incorporate Wisdom and Peace into our exploration somehow.

So I'm thinking of combining two tasks, 1) Make a public art installation (which will be a labyrinth and 2) Play in the labyrinth.

We have a lot of artists in this little enclave of the world..... perhaps we could make an labyrinth art installation with their input. Is the desert a public place when you live on a one strip of road of desert in the middle of Arabia? :)

Morte: When Zer0gee sent out the email for this task I absolutely knew that I had to be there to do it. I've always wanted to go play in that maze, but I either never had the money or no one wanted to go with me. I got there an hour early, so I ende...

MsGoblinpants has an absurdly poor sense of direction. So poor that in order to know her left from her right, she makes "L"s with her hands. It's pitiful. But surely even she could learn to navigate a labyrinth meant for children? To make this a ...
