Forum Events
Most of you know and participated in the Secret Santa event, but now I am posing a question to you all. Should we just keep it at one event or should we add more? The point of the thread is to discuss possible holiday events, general events, and forum-wide contests. If you post here, please have a suggestion for a contest or event or feedback for an idea(why you like it, possible problems, etc, NOT just 'i love it').

Ideally, I can see events happening every 3 months or so. If they are too often, they lose their appeal and the amount of time doesn't put pressure on you guys to participate constantly. Possible holidays include Valentine's Day, Easter, and Halloween(if you suggest any, they should be celebrated internationally, not just in the US like Thanksgiving or Fourth of July). The events themselves don't need to just involve exchanging gifts, maybe they could be contests or raffles.

As for contests, I really would enjoy adding these into what we do. We could have separate categories for dollmaker dolls and handdrawn ones(whether we divide this into pixel-shaded and tool-shaded is up to you guys) and a set group of judges(the number would vary based on the number of participants and would probably consist of mods or older members). These could coincide with major holidays. This isn't meant to replace the handdrawn contests going on, it just is supposed to bring the forums together as a whole.

Also, another idea for a contest is to have a major one done over 6 months to a year. Obviously this would be for members who plan on being here for a while. It could consist of smaller contests and eliminations(like American Idol or Next Top Model, for example) with a title won at the end. There would be a set group of judges who could give feedback to the participants and would place a bottom two, for which you guys vote.

These are only ideas, not anything set. Other ideas are welcome and encouraged since this involves you guys. None of this can happen without you, so let me know what you think.

A raffle might be a good idea, it just seems a little more complicated. As for the America's Next Top Model thing, we could do it with different things, handrawns, dolls from dollmakers, perhaps stories, or something like that. It seems like a good idea. I would also think of Mod Appreciation Week, which is where the users could give a moderator a gift or make a little note in their signature.

^ Ooh, the mod appreciation sounds good. :]
Maybe we could do something like the Secret Santa event for Valentine's day? Everyone could be assigned someone to make a card for, and keep it anonymous by writing, from your secret admirer?

I had an idea and I made a thread for ita while ago but only 2 people have replied. It is in the general discussion and is a party in favour of the moderators. Look and see.
I am also quite sad because I missed the secret santa event so I would like there to be another one.

^ I know, but not a lot of people responded to it, so its not really that big. We could have different themes for each day. ^^ Such as Music Day, we could change up a song to make it thank the moderators. ^^

Xx_Pixie_Dust_xX 12-29-2008 01:34 PM

^ Yeah, each day could be in honor of a different moderator.

Heva_Banana_Mad 12-29-2008 01:34 PM

Yeah do you think I should ask for the thread to be closed or just wait and see if anyone replies.

Well, basically, we only have 3 active moderators. So that wouldn't really work. I love Heva's idea about a resolution for the moderators. ^^

I have a brilliant idea! We could make a thread entitled Moderator Thanks thread. Where we could do all these ideas and more! for instance every week one of the mods could pick one person they think has been extra fantastico that past week.

A valentine's Day one would be fun. The "Santa" could be called cupid or something. I think that Easter would be cool too, with like an Easter Bunny.

AS for the Next Top Model thing, you could have something like everyone dolls, [hand drawn or a doll maker] a character, and they dress up for certain "photoshoots", using the same character throughout the entire competition, but being able to change certain things about them, [i.e. pose, hair length, make up, etc] and eventually, the one who had improved the most would win. So say for instance someone started off with a pillow shaded doll, and in the end they made a beautiful hand drawn after the multiple times dealing with the judges critique, said person would win.
