Advent Planning 2017!

A couple of years ago we did an Advent challenge which was really successful and brought forward a lot of graphic words, so we're going to try for that again this year! Now, I'm not as on to this as kaige68 was back then, so I'm going to try to short cut things a bit from her one, so bear with me if it doesn't make sense - feel free to ask questions!

I know we don't have as many people active in the comm now as we did then, so I hope even those who don't usually make graphics will give this a go this time. My suggestion is to use a graphics site online like ipiccy or fotoflexer if you don't have Photoshop; I've made most of my icons this way and although I'm nobody's expert, they've mostly turned out okay!

So, to the plan!

Part 1 - Comment here with fandom/s and/or fandom pairing/s that you'd like to see more graphics for, ideally something you might be willing to make for too. Please do this by this Friday, 24th November!

Part 2 - On the 26th we will post the results and ask for people to sign up to make graphics for a fandom/fandoms in the 24 days leading up to Christmas. What we want for each posting is a minimum of two icons for each of the fandoms that you picked. You want to make a banner, a love bar, a vid that's all good too! Two per fandom is the minimum, there is no maximum! Graphics do not need to be seasonally themed. You do not have to make graphics for all the fandoms you nominated, and you can pick other people's nominations to make them for; we just want all 24 days covered - so you can choose more than one day and/or fandom.

Part 4 - Start posting on December 1st! Remember that posts can be scheduled in advance, so just because you'll be out of town on Back to the Future day doesn't mean that you can't do that day.

Part 5 - On December 25th, everyone posts something else graphic that either sums up your year in contributing to the word count, or about something special/particular that stood out for you this year (whether that's to do with the comm or just your own real life is up to you)

This should increase our graphic count by at least 50 graphics, and probably more! Not at all shabby! AND it gives to everyone in the community with grab-able graphics!

IT'S ALL WIN!!!

So, comment here with fandoms you'd like to see represented. Be current, be obscure, be quirky, it's all good!

You know... I recently downloaded screencaps of all 10 eps of Mindhunter. So, I'm good with that.

AWESOME! Suggest some more fandoms too if you want. I can imagine it's going to be a small number of us choosing more than one day and one fandom, and going wild with it! ;-)
