Project Community! [For weasyl art project/event brainstorming!] by Jotaku

GOODNESS THIS TOOK LONGER TO SET UP THAN PLANNED /wipes brow
Anyway, I went ahead and made a forum post for my previous journal:
https://forums.weasyl.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?4500-Project-Community!

I've dubbed it Project Community, and I highly encourage those to post on it who would like to brainstorm/work together to create community projects and events to better help Weasyl not only gain a stronger sense of community, but also grow as one.
I've included a couple things that were advertised to me earlier as well! (Including the Comment Project, Badge Exchange, and a raffle). And will probably get to posting weekly to monthly [Project Community] news journals regarding projects going on around the site.

AAAAHHH PLS THO I would really like to discuss working out a Weasyl Fantasia or something jflksd;jf
Also I cannot reply to my own thread until someone else does SNORTS
So yoooo if someone could comment and get the ball rolling? 83c;

    gahh I'm absolutely pants when it comes to brainstorming, but whatever everyone eventually settles on, I'll be sure to participate/advertise it ;v;!

    • Link

      Oh awesome! Would you like me to put you down as a user willing to advertise stuff? : o
      Hopefully some people who DO like to brainstorm and put together projects will stop by ahaha

    You can put me on the list of people willing to help advertise for sure. I also know my art isn't superawesomesauce or anything but I could probably offer up sketches and/or smaller traditionally colored pieces (headshots, colored sketches, etc.) as prizes for some events. At least, I wouldn't mind being asked by individuals seeking artists. : ) I've been on plenty of online art sites but have never really thought of them as a true community (or maybe I'm just generally too shy, lol), so the prospect of something more along those lines is appealing!

    • Link

      Awesome, I added you to the list!
      Thank you so much for offering! :D
      for sure, if you ever wanted to chill around the thread and throw ideas and opinions around on possible projects, that would be awesome!
      I think such a thing could be a good way for lots of people to make friends and such >V<

    woow you rlly put allot of time into that thread ^__^ it all sounds very interesting.

    Sadly I dont have anything weasyl related projects to offer atm then my Iron Artist challenge ^_^. I am redirecting ppl form fa to my weasyl to read all about it, so I hope that helps :P My weasyl only raffle recently ended, but I might offer more raffles in the future. Just doing the best I can to send as much as possible peeps to weasyl!!! We can do it!!! Weasyl go weasyl go!

    I will try to brainstorm about ideas and share them in your thread when I have them :P! You already mention a few good ones :3

    Thanks for putting so much effort to give Weasyl a future! Its rlly nice and aweseoemmm! I rlly like to have Weasyl my main account and that weasyl can grow a bigger community!

    • Link

      Yay thank you! I look forward to discussing/working stuff out with you there.
      Unfortunately an iron artist doesn't quite follow under the events I plan to advertise there... but raffles and things that offer prizes are! :D
      So if you do offer one, lemme know and I'll include it!

      • Link

        hehe I know ^__^ As soon as I have some raffle or something else up I will let you know :3 thanks allot!

  • Link

    +1000 loves to you and this whole idea uwu

    • Link

      HNNN THANK YOU I hope it is successful /anxious fidgeting

      • Link

        it's okay! c:
        whispers although you can add me to the available artists list too if you like, as well as the advertisers :>>

  • Link

    I used to be a community moderator/ volunteer on deviantart and featured daily deviations. I know weasyl does not have a fancy thumbnail sharing ability, but in my experience, doing journals featuring artists and artworks you find of interest is a huge help in building community spirit. Artists love to have their work featured and seen. :)

    • Link

      This is true and a good idea!
      With my Project Community news/journal posts I may try to offer something like a feature in the future... : O
      Thanks for the suggestion! :D

  • Link

    YES!

    Props to you for getting this started!

    • Link

      Thank you! I hope it is successful! *m*

  • Link

    Weasyl Fantasia sounds very interesting.

  • Link

    I'd love to be on the 'users offereing services' list…I think it would be a fun way to help the community!

    • Link

      Thank you! I am definitely adding you down for that list! :D

    The con badge thing is a real nice idea, but maybe we can get something started that's similar but for icons or little portraits, or the like. I for one like to enter into secret santa like stuff and drawing people's characters, but making the badge is a bit much for me. I don't have the supplies to make the badges, we do have to do that right? Am I understanding the conbadge exchange correctly? You make a badge and send it off? If you don't know that's cool, I will ask them. I just thought I would ask and throw the similar idea out there at the same time.

    • Link

      I do not know, as I'm not affiliated with the Badge Exchange and have never done badges. So you'll have to ask them!
      But I can put down the art exchange down for a suggestion, and if you would like to try and get it rolling through the forums as something or organize with other users, then by all means do so! :D

      • Link

        Hrrrmmmm... I don't know... seems like a hefty responsibility, don't know if I can handle that. Or have the time for it... I guess I will talk to the ones that do the badge thing and see what they have to say.

  • Link

    Okay, the fantasia sounds awesome. How would we start that up? I'd also be interested in helping out on projects, though I'm a bit lost in most of this.

    • Link

      I'm trying to get discussion for it going on the thread--so if you wanna join/post there, that would be awesome!
      I have never participated in either the dA or Pixiv Fantasia, so mostly I'm looking for people who HAVE that can tell me more about how the events went down. Otherwise, I am open for ideas/suggestions of course!

      Pretty much, if you wanna help with things right now, definitely recommend joining the thread and just trying to help brainstorm/provide input. if you see an idea you really like and wanna try organizing, that would be awesome too!
