  • Christmas Calendar 2008


    It's that time of the year again, where plans for the christmas calendar are beginning slip into my mind and turning into plans. The last three years has been very successful and Chosen Art is proud to stand as the ONLY site around doing this kind of thing every christmas for the fans of certain fandoms. The calendar of last year was the most successful one as of yet, drawing hundreds of visitors every day, giving away all kinds of graphics, such as wallpapers, icons and textures. There was videoclips, music videos, even an exclusively written christmas song by the very talented Rob Kuhlman (known in the Firefly fandom) for christmas eve, interviews and fun facts. Over the years shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Supernatural, Gilmore Girls, Bones and Veronica Mars has made an appearance in one way or another.

    This calendar is anticipated and looked forward to by many people all around the world, and of course this year will not be any different. Plans for what it will entail are being made. I've picked up the pen and begun writing things down in my secret Dana.TheDudes.Nu book (which is pink and really cute *lol* ) about what will show up this year. Of course I will not be telling you guys because, well, obviously it'll spoil all the fun and take away the whole point with getting a gift every day that you don't know about *grin*

    WANT TO HELP OUT AND BE A SECRET SANTA?
    Over the years, I've always brought in help for the 24 days of christmas, to give you a widespan of gifts, ideas and talents. Graphics artists, record artists and music video makers, among others, has been a part of it all. So now I'm opening things up for this years team. Do you want to be a part of online history and experience the fun and joy in being a gift maker? If so, please read the terms below and then go for the "write new message" button in your email program and write down why you want to be a part of it all

    Your area of expertice can be anything: You can be a graphic maker, music video maker, fanfiction writer, singer/songwriter, transcriber, be one hell of a PA and find those hidden clips of the stars that people have never seen!

    What is demanded of you
    1. First and foremost, do NOT sign up for a job on the team if you don't intend on fullfilling your duties and leaving me hanging rushing to throw something in because you didn't get your act together. (yes, that's harsh words but I've had issues in the past on this detail)
    2. Be sure to turn in your work in time as stated below, and don't be afraid to contact me in the process.
    3. What you make for the calendar can not under any circumstance be posted anywhere else BEFORE the calendar has revealed your work, this will spoil the whole thing and the work will no longer be special for the calendar.
    4. If the assigment you're given isn't going your way in terms of muse and inspiration and whatnot, please contact me ASAP and we'll figure something out, most likely solution is that your assigment will shift to better suit your needs to be able to fullfill the things from the get go.
    5. Do not reveal that you're a part of the christmas calendar team. This will be made public together with your gift. All to make everything more fun as well since nobody will know what to expect if they don't know you're a part of it.

    When applying for a place on the team please fill out the following and send it to [email protected] with "Christmas Calendar 2008" as subject

    Name

    DATES

    (if you send your work in earlier, this is not a problem. This date is the LAST day of handing in your work)

                I know, it's going so fast. It feels like I JUST finished up the 2007 calendar..

                I haven't had a chance to choose the team and send out the missions yet so if you send in an application within 12 hours, you're among the people considered for the team!

                            I did get some really awesome people to sign up, both from here and from another forums and lj-coms, which makes it that much more exciting because YES, we will be having NEW, NEVER BEFORE SEEN items this year! (and by items, I don't mean an icon or a wall *grin* I mean general themes and things that are offered )

                            Maybe next year hun. This year your can view it like this: You can sit back, and enjoy the ride without all the work

                                    Just a reminder that the calendar will be starting up in 13 days. Be there, or be giftless!

                                      I was sitting there thinking about Christmas earlier and realised how soon this would start, I was gonna post something, but didn't get round to it.

                                      Now that I have, I'm so excited, this year is gonna be great, I think.

                                        DANA.THEDUDES.NU IS CURRENTLY UNDER ATTACK

                                        Currently my domain is being hacked, as I'm typing this message. I don't have any access to my server beyond the domain itself so I can't do jack shit about this but wait about 6-8 hours until my brother gets up and can get some kind of handle on the situation. I hate NO idea how extensive this attack will be or how much it will damage my domain.

                                        This effects EVERYTHING on my domain, including this calendar. I have NO idea when things will work again, how much damage will need to be fixed or anything beyond that, since I don't know how far they'll take this attack. I was hoping to launch the preparations for the calendar as early as today but that is no longer an option.

                                        I'm HOPING that things will be back to normal within the weeks end but I DON'T KNOW

                                        So far the sites attacked are: pretty as a PICTURE, The Meaning of Oz, Beautiful Strength and the domain's front
                                        Hopefully they won't reach Chosen Art or Roadhouse since these are the biggest sites (unfortunately so is paap, but that's already gone to hell)
