Event: December (not) Daily Doodles, 2019 edition! Reply to this Post

December (not) Daily Doodles! December (not) Daily Doodles!

December again! Another year winds down and and we are all set for some fine December Doodling! This year I wanted to call it December Dooooodles due to the change of format, but someone (Nemesis) vetoed that; apparently she is the Xmas Grinch this year.

Rather than us posting all throughout December at set times for each challenge, we are going to post all of the challenges in advance. You still will need to submit each entry by the stated cut off time (which will be in each entry thread) and entries posted after that time will be disqualified. You will, however, be able to manage your holiday time a little better and have longer to complete each challenge! Judging times may vary depending on our availability, but we will endeavor to get all entries judged and prizes awarded by early January.

SO! Prepare your pens, paper and random possibly useful stuff from around the house and be ready to DOODLE with the first event closing on December 12th at 11.00am Game Time . Remember, we may require the use of holiday notions such as wrapping paper, cards, ribbons or any to complete some of the tasks so remember to not recycle holiday detritus too early!

As usual, there will be two doodles per week with each one ending on a Tuesday or Thursday. Most, if not all, of these contests will be forum-based and you will need to plan your entries so you don't miss the cut off times for each one. There will be a variety of prizes during the event and they won't be pre-announced.

There will be multiple forum threads for this event. This sticky thread will contain a running summary of events, winners and prizes. Each doodle will then have its own entry thread.


The general rules for the forum contests are as follows (stolen from previous years, but it will broadly apply to this year too)
  • Only one entry per player in each contest, but you may enter as many different contests as you wish during the month.
  • In earlier years, we tended to have Dedicated Doodler prizes for those who completed all Doodles during the month. As this is a lesser achievement with only two doodles a week, we will have to see how entries go this year to decide whether or not to do this. We'll do something for Dedicated Doodlers, but it may be something a little different e.g. a prize draw between Dedicated Doodlers rather than a prize for each? We'll see how many of you there are!
  • You must include your pirate name and ocean at the top of each entry post. Make sure you use the pirate and ocean for which you would want to receive a prize.
  • We will try to make the instructions clear for each contest. As the contests are short, don't get too hung up on the minutiae of rules. Just read the instructions and have a go at following them.
  • If we say "draw", we generally mean the creation of a 2D picture, whether that's done by hand or by computer. Where more physical media are allowed, we will remember to say so.
  • If we say "original" or "must be your own work", we mean that you must create something from scratch, without the use of game art or other resources.
  • Plagiarism: this is the use of someone else's work, claiming it as your own, and applies to all contest types. Don't do it!
  • The entry threads are going to be busy enough without chat. Keep the entry thread just for entries please!
  • The general rules on avoiding tasteless or offensive material apply at all times on this forum but we are mentioning them again here just in case.
  • Judging may be delayed until the end of the month, but we will try our best to judge as soon as possible. Winners and prizes will be posted in the second post of this thread once judging is complete, as well as a more detailed results post at the end of each Doodle's entry thread.
  • Clotho, Hera and Nemesis will be doing most of the judging, bringing in others as and when we need them. There will be a variety of events, though, and we are not going to get into discussions on the judging on any individual event.
  • We will try to deliver prizes as they are announced, but we may not always be as speedy as we would like! Please be patient with us!
  • Don't get hung up on the prizes and the winners. Lots of people participate, and only a few win prizes. Take part because it looks fun, it's an interesting challenge, and it's an opportunity to share your quick-fire skills with your fellow players or to try your hand and something different.



    If you're interested in how the Doodles work, take a look at one of the previous year's editions, linked from this page. Remember this is a new format, giving you extra time to enter.

    Aww, the pets are aces. Nice work!

    Y'know, I will probably always be wistful about the DAILY Doodles, because the creativity such a frantic rush brought out in people was AMAZING. (One year, someone made everything from supplies at their hospital!) I have to admit, though, it's good to know ahead of time that I will need to procure marshmallows. That's something I don't usually eat. They're too close to cannibalism. :D

    We LOOOOOVE the daily doodles too, but we're trying something new and hope to draw in some more folks to participate so we can go bigger and better in the future! Let's see how it goes. There's always next year!

    Whoops Cattrin was on vacation and forgot to check for doodles after mid-December.

    That just means I can binge-look at everyone's entries. :D

    Thank you! It was a very nice time on a warm island with lots of cute critters (this one's shell was over a foot long!).

    I was able to squeeze in an entry for the pet toy doodle. Everything in my kitchen is sticky now.

    I looked through the past doodles and think my favorites are Faeree's festive pet rock, Bisca's Nemesis stocking, and Phaeirie's colorful diorama!

    wb Catttrin, lucky you having a holiday. I missed the pet toys but for the first time will try the singing one. If i can do it you can do it, but unfortunately we can't duet (or maybe that's fortunate for everyone's ears!!)

    My utter and hearfelt and absolutely sincere apologies for the caterwauling in the singing doodle. I sang once for my GU hearties and they've still not recovered from it.

    Well, I think it was a lovely rendition!

    I won't be gracing all of you with my singing this year, unfortunately. I know, you were all looking forward to it. ;)

    It sounds great!
    Sincerely, everyone who sings is such a good sport. This is always my favorite doodle, even though I couldn't carry a tune at sword point.

    Thanks to the OM's for giving of their time to facilitate the Doodles. The art comps on the forums are a big part of my PP life. I always enjoy the creativity of my fellow pirates, the way one thing can be interpreted in so many different ways. I treasure any of the prizes I'm lucky enough to win, and hope we get many more opportunities to come. <3
