This is an update for the Forum Decoration Contest!! Remember the previous thread for
Well we would like to ANNOUNCE an IMPORTANT change to the submission process and also provide further instructions!!!!
First thing first,
We would like to make a
CHANGE to the
Contest Entry Submission Process
Given that participating sections are expected to present a beautiful thread
an an entry (with number of posts making up a thread), it may be very difficult
to get it all through via PM (with a heavy load of content).
Hence, we are changing the Process of Submission!
We have thought of a way to make it easy for the participants
as well as the judges!
So here is all you have to do
Once the section members are done their FINAL THREAD
CONTENT (a series of posts making up the entry thread),
ONE person should collect all the FINISHED THREAD CONTENT, and
simply open a new thread in the Chat Clubs Section & post it.
Once the entire contest content is posted on the thread,
the THREAD LINK must be sent to the following account:
by 21st December 2011!
~to ensure that your work isn't copied, please post it on the 21st itself in the chat club section and send the link~
Upon receiving the link, we will CLOSE that thread to prevent any comments
and sent the links to the judges, who will be people from regular members
to higher DTs.
NO further COMMENTS should be posted on the thread (other than whatever each section members come up with for the contest entry)!
The Section name SHOULD NOT BE indicated anywhere on the post!
The thread MUST have a CHIRISTMAS/ New Year THEME!
*It shoudln't be based on the theme of the show!!!*
They CANNOT have any SERIAL related content on the thread.
*This is to ensure that the thread is generic to allow for unbiased voting!!!*
You may ask any one for creations, as long as they agree!
*In other words you can PM any creators on IF for help, as long as they offer to help!*
What are the expectations
As mentioned earlier, the contest is about creating a Holiday Season/ Christmas/ New Year celebration
thread, which will be judged, and the best one will be made the GA on
behalf of Crazy Creatives! It must be creative,with regards to
presentation and the ideas. For example, you must make it a grand
thread with lots of glitters/ pictures related to the season. You may
also include some activity/ game for the entire IFians to play/take part
A festive thread with multiple posts
An Aumtmn thread with single post:
Therefore, the thread has to be Grand, and you may seek any member's help , with regards to graphics/mucis, etc. It can have anything christmas/ new year related, but NOT
any serial content, like pictures of characters/ celebrities. You
should NOT include your section name on the thread, so it allows for
To do & Not to do
If you find graphics from any random photobucket account,
please reupload it onto:
or any other image uploader,
that doesnt' have any issue with bandwidth. Sometimes
graphics used from photobucket account tend to be removed
due to breaching bandwidth.
Pay a lot of attention to spelling! Try to cut down on the amount of text.
Instead try to portray an attractive post, with lots of glitter graphics, etc.
Once again remember that you are NOT restricted to a single post! You may use
as many posts as you wish! However, make sure its well planned!
When thinking of activities/ games, keep in mind that you want something
that is fun-filled and would attract many members. It can be anything
related to the season!
Please make sure it is GRAND and EXCITING and ENTERTAINING to the
ENTIRE FORUM!!! The BEST THREAD will be declared as the Winning one,
and the section that came up with will get prizes !
For further information check out the previous thread:
The individual threads will then be judged based on the following categories:
Caliber of Ideas

Is the presentation style appealing?
