    With the ongoing pandemic, and the restriction in real life events, we have seen an increase in people holding and organising online events. As these contribute to our comunity, we wanted to recognise them for the Merit badges and so created the Virtual Event Merit
    https://library.tarvalon.net/index.php?title=Virtual_Events_Merit
    Initially, this is a silver merit, but may be expanded to have a gold leve if this seems necessary. It is also a new merit, and we are still learning how common such events are, and how much effort they take to organise, so we will likely review. Each event will count only for one person - the host or organiser, and they will need to show proof of attendance

    • Coffee Talk - Host 10 online chats or virtual meetings
    • Movie Buff - Host 5 online movie watch events
    • Achievement Unlocked - Host 5 online quizzes or trivia
    • I Was There - Attend 20 virtual events
    • Epic Event - plan an epic event. This is a nomination only merit for people who have planned large online events such as America's Next Top Gaidin

    OK, I feel like we need a "The-rest-of-the-world's Next Top Gaidin" as well then ;).

    Like World Idol, Norway is in it to win it. Also, I too look like a hobbit, so that is a plus :lol

    (If you don't take the reference: )
