The Whaleman is quite an iconic figure/meme in the Wolfire community.

Here's a short blog post which explains its origins.

Minelord has been quite close to the Whaleman, as can be shown below

and in many birthday videos

and he tells me that his birthday is near!

Preferably on the 17th of October, we'll be celebrating his birthday and to make it the biggest event ever, let's have a think about it!

Personally, I've been thinking of a whaleman sculpting competition, but that might be a bit much for casual joiners... so comment with any ideas you have and let's get this party under way!

    Whaleman sculpting competition for regulars and whoever else is interested, with the judges being the entire OG staff plus the OGW complement.
    Competition happens beforehand, and the public judging on the event itself.

    And the announcement of the competition includes mention of honourable mentions for the most impressive non-whaleman art pieces! Total artistic freedom!

    The winner of the whaleman contest gets his sculpture declared the official Whaleman's image!

    An additional mini-competition might be like 'Best OG-related minecraft skin!'.
    Um.

    Yeah.

    Perhaps the first thing we should do is announce the first competition, and paste our whaleman in a wiiiiiiiiiide open space, make a warp, and declare the playing field open to contenders.

    I like the idea but wonder if it might be on the ambitious side... how do we get an audience?

    Should we be talking to David/Jeff/Aubrey for help?

    Oh and btw, please vote on ideas by clicking on the button on the top right of posts!

    Should I build an epic redstone birthday party game or should I wait till the next birthday party? If not, I need ideas for something relevant. I don't know whaleman well enough :p

    Does whaleman eat cake?

    Or should we have a net of fishes? (a bit difficult in Minecraft... so maybe a cage of fishes?)

    No fishes in Minecraft so maybe err I dunno, sculptures of fishes in an iron bar cage with a mini whaleman standing in the middle?

    Maybe that's too much...

    SPONGBLoRB will be there as always, don't worry about that.
    There will be no Plankblorb.
    Come on, guys, Whaleman time!

    Hello, sorry I've been silent for so long!

    I have a legitimate reason though... as @Thijn now knows.

    I'm in a weird situation where my laptop is completely nonfunctional all of a sudden...

    It has problems with the fan, gpu and other stuff which basically means I can't use it.
    (I'm writing this from a college computer in case you're wondering)

    Please everyone, help Glun and have a great party! I will be there in spirit.
    Sorry @Glunnator...
