I too have been wondering about this. Is it happening this year? Anyone seen Ammy around? I'll be happy to spearhead it if not :)

And we might even be able to pull Smeag in again. :P At any rate, I think there are enough of us who have been around that we can pull it off. I always love it, so let's go for it.

Might as well start tossing date ideas around now, so that half the summer doesn't go by before we know it. :D

I'm actually not too busy this summer, so I'll be able to participate fully this year. :) I can help out if you need it. :D

Hmmmm, how about the opposite of Fairy tales? Like vampires and such. Sorta like the temptation of darkness?

To be honest, I would much rather wait until we have results from last year before we start organising this years.

I think it's only fair on everyone that entered and spent the time. I'm not saying that this years wouldn't be fully completed, but I personally, would rather the time I spent last summer was rewarded before I spend X amount of time this year.

Results never came out? :blink:

I guess I never noticed because I don't really care so much about the tallying and votes and such. I join because it gives me a reason to make graphics and stretch myself. That being said, I'm all for continuing it even if we forego the voting. So that's just my two cents worth.

I know one theme idea tossed around last year was the world, where you'd do things featuring major cities across the world. I think that would kind of cool.

You'll have to get in touch with Ammy or Smeag to get the results. I had forgotten about not getting them... but I don't mind since I just had fun doing it...

I know what you mean though JF..

----

So sort of Villains of sorts and mystical beings? Vampires, Werewolves, Ghosts... etc

Well having fun is one thing, and I don't want people to think that I only care about points.... but I did a lot of stuff last year that was different for me, and I was proud of it. I was looking forward to hearing what the judges had to say, and if they had any advice to give me. That was one of the points about the cook-off, to be nudged into doing things we wouldn't normally do, and to be given feedback for it at the end.

So yeah, I am a bit bummed over that, as it was part of the cook-off and I'm not going to lie, I was looking forward to seeing if I would get any rewards for my hard work. It was also part of the cook-off.

I like the idea of the world or cities.

I'm gone for a portion of July but I'd still love to have a GMC this year. Hopefully I'll be able to do it for at least a little bit. And maybe have two again? And have the second be a little less intense, I had fun doing both last year, although I was super tired out for the second round.

I like the world idea as well, or perhaps an out of this world/world theme. Possibly?

*pops in*

Umm, well I know I never really participated in this, but doesn't this happen during RotR? Which is the real reason I'm posting - are we having one this year, or just foregoing the entire RotR celebration? :erm:

Off topic, sorry, but I was wondering how this summer was going to work. :blush:

^ I *think* the GMC was always seperate from RotR Aratman, don't quote me on that though.

So are we all in agreement for a Wolrd/Cities theme then?

@Darky :: I think another 2-pater would be a great idea, incase anyone is unable to attend one of them.

@JF :: I'll see if I can get in touch with Ammy about the results as I agree, although I was mainly in it for the fun it's always good to get feedback and such.

@Ara: yes, the GMC isn't part of RotR. I know last summer RotR was kind of a burnout. I was thinking about some ideas for this year and such a few days ago, but I don't think that's for this thread, haha. :P Perhaps we ought to start up one of those too.

@Darky: I loved the two weeks as well. I don't know exactly how you'd do a less intense one, though. Did we do requirements at all for specific graphics? I forget. If we did, then I suppose we could lessen those..?

Hope I/we didn't come across as pointing fingers or singling you out or anything JF. I do agree, feedback is nice to have.
