The 24-hour bash is a tradition of Y!PP, dating back to early beta-testing on the Azure Ocean. On Azure, Gaea Island was won by the Rudder Revolution (RR); in celebration, they organized 24 hours of events straight - spending more than a million PoE on prizes. It was such a success that they repeated it at the beginning of Midnight, this time based on Guava Island.
Silver Dawn (SD) held a similar event only a few weeks later, with a Leap Year theme.
The 24-hour bash was then forgotten for more than a year, until the No Homers (NH), who owned Gaea Island at the time, resurrected the concept and held their own 24 hour bash to celebrate the wedding of Greasy and Longshotz.
