[EVENT] Xmas in July 2019

Mon Jul 01, 2019 11:31 am

X-Mas in July!

Table of Contents

It's that time again!

It's time again for our biannual exchange of gifts!

How does it work?

If you're unfamiliar with traditional Secret Santas, here's how they work! First, you leave the information for one of your characters; name, appearance, anything of that nature. After everyone has signed up that would like to participate, we'll take the names of each person and give them out to another person randomly to make a gift. Finish the gift for your recipient before the due date!

Gift assignments are done round robin style, so your giftee and the person giving you a gift are different people.

REMEMBER! If you fail to turn in your set by the deadline, you will be put on our Contest Ban list. This means that you will be unable to participate in all 'Souls OOC events and contests until you complete your assignment for Xmas in July. It isn't fair to your partner otherwise!

Great! What info do I need to post?

Timeline of Events

  • Signups: July 1 - July 8
  • Information distributed: July 9
  • Due date: August 1

Some things to keep in mind...

  • Please do NOT sign up for Xmas in July if you have no idea how to draw or make a table, graphics, etc.
  • A tableset includes a table, avatar, AND signature. You're welcome to include more, but please have at least these three things unless your giftee specifies otherwise!
  • Drawn art MUST be finished and colored and a minimum of a headshot/avatar. More elaborate pieces are definitely allowed, but unfinished sketches and uncolored lineart are not!
  • Please keep in mind board-wide graphics rules and guidelines.
  • Please only request items for characters at 'Souls.
  • In an effort to ensure that everyone receives their gifts, please remember that participants who don't finish their gifts by the due date will be barred from participating in contests and other board events until they complete their part.
