Well, in regards to the timeline of how things played out, the last fanart contest didn't go so well since it took over a year to finish.  Regardless, I'm going to move forward and do new fanart contests.  So I'm going to go ahead and open this thread for any input anyone has for future fanart contests in regards to rules and subject matter.

As for timing, I think I'm going to avoid convoluted selection processes like used in the last contest and enforce stricter deadlines.  I think it would go like this.

1.  Contest is announced.

2.  The contest is left open for 2 months for entries.

3.  The contest is closed for entries.

4.  The contest is open for one month for voting.

So this would result in each contest wrapping up within 3 months.  With how slow the forum is, I don't think we should have it faster than that, but that should be enough time for anyone to enter, finish and entry and vote that wanted to.  Maybe I would lengthen the entry period to three months, but not more than that for sure.

As far as subject matter and other rules, I'm open to hearing any ideas anyone has.  I kind of want to do a Mother's Day contest.  That would be kind of fun.  Stella Gabby Carmen Phoebe
Haven't been to the site in a while. Guess the Discord wrapped.
Hey, a shorter time for it (if it happens) sounds great.

Figured I'd reply. If not M-Day, maybe a general theme, upcoming holiday, or no theme. Smile
BradleyEX decided to close the Discord. I think it was mostly because it was slow and the amount of trolls Discord attracted wasn't worth the effort. I'm sorry if you weren't warned beforehand. I think I may have tried to tell you, but I can't remember anymore.

I definitely think the contest needs a specific theme, other wise people would submit art they had made previously which would be unfair to newcomers.

Ok, thanks for the info. Wow, delayed reply on my part.  Sweat Drop

Well, the Twitter announcement of possible future TS reminded me of the site. 
If it's real, maybe a TS revival theme.  Wink

No problem.

Well, I saw the Tweet.  I think I will wait until I see an official announcement.  It was nice of the creator of Miraculous to clue us in though I guess, but a lot can happen right now that can chagne things considering the pandemic isn't over.

And whether or not a new season of TS is a good thing is up in the air too imo.  If the original people who made it are involved, I will be excited, but we've seen a lot of cartoon revivals made by outsiders form the original productions that fell flat.  Thundercats and He-Man come to mind I think, but we'll see.  lol
