Contest/Event suggestions

Recommended Posts

Suggested it on the survey but a custom Gasr Emoticon contest ? Just for a less extensive art contest that some of those that feel like they aren't as artistically inclined as others might be able to get into.

 

Also something based around drawing Pablob would be fun too, like a Pablob costume event?

We have an artist on retainer that will be making a Pablob themed emoticon set for us along with animated ones as well!

 

+ We have already had contests that involve drawing Pablob.  We'll certainly continue that!

I was wondering if we can have a big event in support of victims of sexual assault/ harassment. To use our artwork and give victims a voice. I'm hoping our art from this event can make some change for others. Maybe have it spread out to other social media. 

 

 

 

We're currently discussing this, thanks for the suggestion.

Not "Official" Gasr emote. Just something fun like a react style emote (someone throwing money, sad empty wallet, or weird faces)

Summer solstice is on june 21st ♥ there's a idea !

Maybe something related to the sun or maybe something like Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" since midsummer is, as quoted by wikipedia: "the period of time centered upon the summer solstice"

I'm fairly sure that GASR around valentines day has not done a charity and I've been looking into it. 

Valentines day is a huge day that revolves around you being with those you love and hold close, however, In many cases that "love" isn't exactly that. 

Valentines day is the biggest day for those who suffer or have suffered from domestic abuse have to face.

I was wanting to know if possible could there be a charity event for those who donate to a domestic abuse charity / organization receive something? Art from particular artists who'd be willing to offer? Elite membership?  etc. 

I'd love for there to be some light shed on this & for people to help those who suffer from this, its covered up by a lot of the mushy gushy things on that day. 

 

There could also be other charities!! It doesn't just have to stop at domestic abuse, I know I've been looking into finding a place to donate feminine products and personal hygiene to the homeless.

Botanical Event :llampret: Maybe for the end of winter, just a cute floral event. Maybe a week of art prompts for different mediums (poetry, story writing + art/comic, digital art, traditional, screenshots, etc.) Prompts such as; Botanical Witches, Botanical Aliens, etc. Random ass idea tbh  :sideeyeha:

I was just curious if we are planning to have another Earth Day event, I know it's still a bit over a month away, but I really enjoyed last years, plus you can never spread enough environmental awareness :flower:

I'm not sure that's something we will be doing at the moment, since it's very niche. When we host events, we try try to build them around something that the vast majority of people would be interested in! You can however, host your own event! That option is always there for you. :walove:

I think it'd be awesome where we did an event for the houses where we either create a character or dress our characters up in house uniforms! Idk if there are uniforms already made, but we can also have an event where we ask each house to design a uniform for the school!! Then make a template for characters for users to fill in like on DA when they make groups for certain themes. Does that kinda make sense???? LOL

Maybe we can do a event based on American Horror Story?

* suggesting *

 

Create overlays based on the seasons 1-8. Individuals pick a season or describe why they like something in ASH. Maybe also do a drawing event connected, where artists draw and paint a theme about AHS.

LOVE this idea! It sounds so cute and would help us all come together as well! Thank you for the suggestion. :) :blove:

Hey! I unfortunately think that the AHS theme is a bit too niche to create an event solely based on it (I love it too though!). However, we could definitely work on some horror themed events if you guys wanted something sort of spooky! Another reminder that you can also do member hosted events if that niche idea is something you'd really like to see. Feel free to suggest any other ideas you may have for a horror themed event though!. :) :lazierblush:

Trunk sale for art?

Basically the idea is to get a group of artists that have premades that have been sitting for awhile in their shops that are not really selling, or new artists that don't have a ton of exposure to sorta put them on the map. It's not as structured as an auction because it has multiple themes so it's more collectic, the idea isn't really to be an auction but it could be, might be simpler to just have a flat price. You can hype up the event prior so people are aware of it (mostly so they can have money when the time comes). My personal opinion, I like to know about auctions or events that require money ahead of time.

 

Summer slumber party / Bundle up Tuesdays / Flashback Fridays, basically just more movie nights it could be chick flick, comedy, action, etc. I always find it fun to join in on the movie days when you guys have them and it's really easy but it relies on the mods schedules, maybe get a trusted mod assistant to also help stream in case a mod gets tired or something happens? I'm not too sure how that would work. You don't always have to provide an reward such as a badge, it could just be for fun. 

 

Maybe an event that focuses on the members talents, being taught a talent, or somewhere in between? Say you have a green thumb, you can show an easy way to take care of eucalyptus plant. If you are into sewing, you can show someone how to make a bag. If you are super skilled in video games, you can take a group of newbies under your wing and show them how to play. Showing someone how to make jewelry or cook, what recipes you use or love. I'm sure there are tons of family recipes because we are all diverse and come from different parts of the world. Sharing your passions with the community and also opening up common interests so it helps interactions and brings more people to be active. I know it doesn't guarantee members to be more active but it's nice for people who are more introverted that you have something in common before talking, know that people who are participating are friendly, and are open to making new friends.   

 

Auction themed around different planets/galaxies, black & white, drawing in a different style, favorite movies/music, fan art, eras, favorite Disney movies, different cultures, different alcohol beverages, comic book styles, get inspired by different cities / countries, architecture(more of an inspiration on what that person would be based on how the buildings are built), or fashion trends that you love.

 

Sweater Weather, use a template of a sweater and allow everyone to color or redesign / do anything they want and allow members to vote on which sweater they like the most (Fall / Winter)

Pumpkin Spice challenge, you can get members to spot pumpkin spice anywhere(not on the internet) and the most unique item will win?  (Fall / Winter)

 

Online games are always a fun option, Scribble, Scrabble, Overwatch, League, World of Warcraft, Ark, Minecraft, Raft, Stardew Valley, Tera, etc.

(These are just suggestions, I know that there are some off topic threads.)

 

I'm not sure how realistic these ideas are but I thought it was worth a shot. :fingerguns:

It's clear you put a lot of thought into these ideas and I think you have some really great ones. :blove:I absolutely love the idea of our members teaching each other something new, it'd be a really great way for members to branch out and maybe even find a new hobby in the end!

I think it would be cool if we had an event where a non-artist sketches something and then that sketch is given to an artist who will finish it off with their own interpretation. I was thinking maybe of having artists who would like to participate to sign up and the event mods can give the sketches to them, to make it a little more challenging and random :hee: Just an idea to let both non-artists and artists participate! And both can get their own badge :ey:

 

I was inspired from rossdraws, below are some examples!
