First of all - I'm going to be taking about three weeks off so that I can finish my course work for this year. (Anyone want to write a historiography paper for me? Please? No? Okay.) It would be great to have some guest newsposts to fill my Friday newspost slot during this time! If you're interested, please comment here or send a message to myself or kawaiidaigakusei.
You can continue to send me news while I'm away as I'll still be checking my messages, but it might make more sense to send it straight to kawaii.
Anyways, irrevenant had suggested under my last newspost that it might be fun to do monthly themed art competitions, which I think is a great idea! My idea for how that would work is that I would announce the theme around the beginning of the month, and then everyone would have until the end of the month to send me their entries. I would then put up all the entries in a newspost and announce the next month's topic.
The main thing I'm unsure about is what I could offer as prizes to the winners. A comic plug? A fancy banner/trophy? A piece of fan art?
I kind of like the idea of having a different trophy each time that winners can put in their profiles/signatures, but I'm not sure if that's a terrible prize.
And would you like to see winners determined through anonymous polls, or just chosen by me? I'm leaning towards a poll as I don't want to be responsible for any hurt feelings, but I can see how that might become a popularity contest.
Please let me know your thoughts!
