I am pretty sure this activity was our most successful one in the history of this comm. Everyone seemed to get sucked into it and made a ton of icons. I never expected this - I thought I was the only one who still remembered and liked song sets. Boy, was I wrong!

97 icons in 17 sets by 10 makers, in order of submission this time )

Thank you so much for participating, everyone! <3

Feel free to comment here or on each maker's threads linked next to their name.

Our next activity will be posted next weekend.

The roundup for our last activity will come soon(ish), but first, a poll:

What kind of activities do you like doing? I'd just like to get a feel for what we as a community like the most.

You can check as many as you like! I'm always going to make sure that the themes are alternating/rotating, and I will prefer the types which get the most votes.

It's challenge time!

Comment with Just One Thing you've accomplished in the last 24 hours or so. It doesn't have to be a hard thing, or even a thing that you think is particularly awesome. Just a thing that you did.

Feel free to share more than one thing if you're feeling particularly accomplished!

Extra credit: find someone in the comments and give them props for what they achieved!

Nothing is too big, too small, too strange or too cryptic. And in case you'd rather do this in private, anonymous comments are screened. I will only unscreen if you ask me to.

Go!

Guess the Equinox vidder!

Now that Spring Equinox is live, it's time to play Guess the Equinox Vidder!

Remember: if you already know who made the vid, please don't reveal the vidder; inside information ≠ a guess. And if someone guesses you correctly, don't comment to say so! (At least, not until after reveals.)

Here are a couple of past guessing posts if you want to see examples of how this goes: Spring Equinox 2017, Fall Equinox 2017, Fall Equinox 2018.

So take some wild stabs in the dark, or carefully analyze editing styles, or whatever you'd like -- and post your guesses here!

Creative Jam

Welcome to the eightieth Crowdfunding Creative Jam! This session will run Saturday, April 20-Sunday, April 21. The theme is "Identity Crisis."


Crowdfunding Creative Jam

Everyone is eligible to post prompts, which may be words or phrases, titles, images, etc. Prompters may request a specific creator, but everyone else may still use that prompt if they wish. Prompts may specify a particular character/world/etc. but creators may use the prompt for something else anyway and post the results. Prompters are still encouraged to post mostly prompts that anyone could use anywhere, as this maximizes the chance of having creators make something based on your prompt. Please title your comment "Prompt" or "Prompts" when providing inspiration so these are easy to find.

Prompt responses may also be treated as prompts and used for further inspiration. For example, a prompt may lead to a sketch which leads to a story, and so on. This kind of cascading inspiration is one of the most fun things about a collective jam session.

Everyone is eligible to use prompts, and everyone who wants to use a given prompt may do so, for maximum flexibility of creator choice in inspiration. You do not have to post a "Claim" reply when you decide to use a prompt, but this does help indicate what is going on so that other prompters can spread out their choice of prompts if they wish.

Creators are encouraged, but not required, to post at least one item free. Likewise, sharing a private copy of material with the prompter is encouraged but not required. Creative material resulting from prompts should be indicated in a reply to the prompt, with a link to the full content elsewhere on the creator's site (if desired); a brief excerpt and/or description of the material may be included in the reply (if desired). It helps to title your comment "Prompt Filled" or something like that so these are easy to identify. There is no time limit on responding to prompts. However, creators are encouraged to post replies sooner rather than later, as the attention of prompters will be highest during and shortly after the session.

Some items created from prompts may become available for sponsorship. Some creators may offer perks for donations, linkbacks, or other activity relating to this project. Check creator comments and links for their respective offerings.

Prompters, creators, and bystanders are expected to behave in a responsible and civil manner. If the moderators have to drag someone out of the sandbox for improper behavior, we will not be amused. Please respect other people's territory and intellectual property rights, and only play with someone else's characters/setting/etc. if you have permission. (Fanfic/fanart freebies are okay.) If you want to invite folks to play with something of yours, title the comment something like "Open Playground" so it's easy to spot. This can be a good way to attract new people to a shared world or open-source project, or just have some good non-canon fun.

Boost the signal! The more people who participate, the more fun this will be. Hopefully we'll see activity from a lot of folks who regularly mention their projects in this community, but new people are always welcome. You can link to this session post or to individual items created from prompts, whatever you think is awesome enough to recommend to your friends.
