First off, I, once again, apologize for the lack of updates or seeming activity. In the past few weeks, it's been harder and harder to get a hold of my fellow admins, so little has been done in the meanwhile.
Though I would like to present something that *Frayta and I think will help bring more activity in our responsibilities, and within the packmemebers': A contest!
Simple concept; very open to interpretation:
Present something that symbolizes, and embodies Winter.
No real restriction besides it must be furry (normally I would say canine, if not wolf, but our pack has such diversity now that it seems unfair to do as such), and it must involve no season besides Winter. Setting, character, time period, what they're doing- that's all up to you.
Being a better writer than artist, I would be more open, and willing to say written pieces are allowed entry, but perhaps discouraged. We couldn't effectively pit written pieces against drawn ones, so unless we get a large enough sum (I would have to say close to four or five min.), we'll be left no choice but to acknowledge your entry, but not allow any contest to be made. And it wouldn't be fair to give the only entry the first prize of winning if there was no actual contest to begin with.
Starting today, Octobre 21st, 2010, the contest will extent to the Winter Solstice, on Decembre 21st.
Prizes will come. Once again, it's not been fully flushed out with the admins as to what we're doing, and where things are going, but I believe that if nothing else, the winner should receive some boon. Whether it be extra points added to their total, or some sort of free commission. Again, I'm not entirely sure, but I did want to present the idea for you to be aware of.
So we have two months to get as many submissions as possible! The more people that submit, the better the diversity, and the better the contest is for everyone. So lets all have fun, and put forth some effort to work together as a community in some friendly competition!
