Re: Valentine's Event! Win nauseating stuff!

I was wondering if an entry by created two people will be allowed?

Re: Valentine's Event! Win nauseating stuff!

I think this was asked before, but never answered.
Are we allowed to include both lets say a letter, along with some art all in one entry devoted to one OM/Dev?

But nauseating stuff is fun!

 
If you make something physical and also want to send it in, then PM Thalette to arrange this.


Before I bother Thalette, are their rules that define the "something physical" which we can send in? Size limits, weight limits, non-perishables, etc.? Should something physical be along the lines of large, well-made prints of moodily-lit photographs of interesting kitchen utensils?

If two people make an entry, that's fine, as long as you're willing to share the prize if you win one. Any prize would go by default to the person that posts.

Mmmmmmmm, kiiiiitchen utensiiiiils... *cough* Sorry. Lost myself for a bit there. First, be clear that you don't have to send anything physical in at all. This is purely if you end up making something and have a desire to send it in. I would think that size/weight limits are your choice, as they will affect mailing costs. Other constraints - I'll check with Thalette. I would think that perishables are fine as long as they're coming a short distance, aren't acutely perishable (chocolates good, bananas bad) and you're happy for the people in the Office to demolish them rather than them being forwarded anywhere else. For something essential two-dimensional (like the delicious kitchen-utensil pictures) there is probably less to be gained from sending something in, but I don't remember seeing any whisk or spoon pictures in the Office, so who knows? ;) If you have any specific questions, or want to check on something unusual, PM Thalette. If there's an answer that would benefit from being shared generally, she will post the information in here.

Yes, as long as it's in one post.

In this thread. I will change the thread title to say "Winners Announced" and include a link to the winners' post in the first post.

Will there only be given out 1 Familiar for the overall winner or a Familiar per section (OMs A-E; OMs F-Z; Devs)?

In other news, its possible to wrap a box in a box...


And, can you wrap another box that is wrapped in a box with another box and so on and so forth until you have a box wrapped in a box wrapped in a box wrapped in a box wrapped in a box wrapped in a box?


and inside the last box is???

Yay!!! a golden apple...but don't try to bite into it or you'll be going to visit the dentist for valentines day...which would be REALLY harsh! :P

The split is purely to keep the entry threads manageable. Just one familiar will be won.

*laughs* Everyone should have one! :)


In other news... I have been getting a lot of PMs asking me to make edits to entry posts / delete posts / fix links / fix images / tidy up, etc. I will be deleting some posts as I bilge the entry threads every now and again, but on the basis of the number of requests for edits I've had, I think I really have to say now that I can't do this. I strongly suggest that you check your text carefully before you hit the Post button, and that you use Preview to check format, quotes, images, links, etc, are working.

My apologies to people that I'm letting down, but I think there will be a lot of entries and I can't be fixing them all!

If you completely booch an entry post, then feel free to post a second one with the corrected links or images. However, my best advice is to check more thoroughly before posting the first time!

A sneaky way to change the image is to use a website like Photobucket, where you can "update" the image with the same url by deleting it and uploading another one by the same name. It's useful if you need to fix little things in your art and can't edit.

Aye, I haven't been asked to changed an actual image url so far, but that's a good way round it if you need to update your entry.

You don't have to be an OceanMaster or Developer to *enter*. The targets of the tokens should be OMs or Devs, but anyone can enter.

Re: Valentine's Event! Win nauseating stuff!

I have an awesome idea!

If we do decide to play a song on the viola, does it have to be love-ish or can it be creepy. And does it have to be our own or can we use someone elses music and come up with lyrics or a storyline to it?

lol! I was thinking of pulling my viola out of the closet and write a song too, but I fear that it has been years since i've played and I wouldn't want to be responsible for bursting anyone's eardrums. But I would love to hear your entry!

On a side note, does anyone want to dance? Cephalopod excluded, I've heard he has eight left feet...anyone...anyone?

I have a question. You say entries to two oms and one dev. Can I possibly make it one om and two devs? Don't make me cry in having to choose between the devs of my choice. :(

No, sorry.
Only one Dev or there will be Too Much DevLove. The Valentine Code is a harsh master, and hard choices come with the territory.

Fine I'm off to cry.....


And to KP: I get it now. Pogo explained it to me. :P I didn't get the shoes part.....


Maybe it has to do with shoe size? :P
that would be funny to see on mythbusters


I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with shoes, mate.

Re: Valentine's Event! Win nauseating stuff!

I'm useless at things like this and I've never managed to do something like that for someone I was actually in love with. I will therefore proceed to play Sweet Child o' Mine VERY loudly and forget this competition along with all my other troubles.
