I was surprised and disappointed Winter Event Ending Soon thread was closed; i have searched for any related threads to post my questiions/concerns in but there are none (open/relavant).

I did my best to race every day from the start of the event. Sadly computer and other issues which neither I nor Cryptic/PWE had any control over set me back; of the 17 characters i've made i could only race 12 and of those only 1 was unable to finish. Some of my chars have an extra 160-200; more than enough for him to close the gap (he has either 840 or 880 photos). Will the Q Photos by unbound at some point or at least made account-shareable?

pwebranflakes frequently redirected inquiries to http://sto.perfectworld.com/news/?p=798511 but that article fails to disclose either the location(s) of the ferengi selling Winter Items or for how lone; i would presume until 31st Jan, the date stated for the GPL Converter.

I made the Winter Event my priority for the limited time i have to play, essentially sacrificing almost all of the opportunities for playing FE Reruns; only 1 BOff, 2 Canes and 7 (4+2+1) Lobi. Far short of what i'd hoped to accomplish.

That said i did generally enjoy the event. Some days i really had a blast! Despite the annoyance of Snowmen attacking when i'm trying to Race.

I look forward to both your reply and to the next event.

The GPL conversion consoles are located in the two Ferengi lairs: Quark's and Drozana. Always near the Dabo table.

At those consoles, the selling of all the winter stuff continues till the end of January.

Might actually get around to leveling a few of my lowbies then.
A map of known space, circa 2405 <--- Note where Iconia is. It's nowhere near Starbase 39.

In the short time I've been here, I notice Cryptic has a series of events that they "chain" to spice up the latter part of a season - and get players around for the pre-season hype...

The first one usually run is double XP weekend...

Yet to be seen this season, but ones I've seen before:

Junior Officer appreciation weekend - +50% CXP + exocomp/reman DOff if you don't already have it...

Fleet mark week - where the whole week is considered an hourly "fleet mark event" that shows up on the calendar and all missions give the bonus marks...

Logic tells me that there will be a week where the reputation event is always on, much like the fleet mark week... Yeah, it doesn't shorten the actual time of the reputation events (but remember, the timers were dropped from 40 hours to 20, I'm not asking for much more than that...)

So, outside of Dilithium (of which the only "event" I've seen was the introduction of the mines) I expect everyone to get "their turn" - even though nobody else gets a full doubling of their incomes...
50: S'Leth/Eurthyr/S. Dareau/Ardrian/Krudge/Annlova Not: Jadja
Still at it. CBS "restrictions" fell by wayside with freebie Breen. Time to re-examine ENT and ToS at tier 5, repurpose the Connie into Sci and rebuild an Akira escort into the "NX". 6 "eras", spread evenly over all the classes...

I seem to recall the 2nd Aniversary events (test the Odyssey/Bortasqu) had a character level requirement to participate. Something like Lv 5 FED/25 KDF. I presume that will be the case this year; if this year's events require different/higher levels the sooner you let the players know the better. At least 3 of my avatars will have to grind this week to make last year's minimum.

To Members of the STO Forum Community: I know about events with bonus xp; i can't always be on at those times. Mirrior Universe Incursion is min Lv 10. Please, as a favor i ask do not reply with info i already know but cannot use do to my situation (limited time/times i can play, cash for zen...). Thank you.

*You?ll earn double Expertise rewards if your character is at max-level.
Could you please have a more pointless event, maybe something like 'The Sky is blue' event, or maybe 'Grilled Cheese Tuesday' event.

Never mind, both of those are infinitely more useful than an XP event that only benefits max level players. Great job.

Thanks for reminding me I'm not sure when or why but the Defera Invasiion was revised to have it be Lv 50-only. Or the stowiki's wording threw me off...

I tested it and my Lv 2 sci was able to get there and accept missions. TY loverofwars! I haven't done Defera in so long i nearly forgot about it!

I work only a few miles from the Cryptic building.. if they had Grilled Cheese Tuesdays I would be all over that place.
