7.26.2015>> [Announcement] Skype group, Group Super, & Mission Features



Skype group:
Just a reminder to any members who have traversed the dA chatroom only to find it barren. We have a skype chat group that is bursting with life! If you are not a part of the skype group, note the group with your skype name and we will add you to the party as soon as possible! If you don't have a skype account, we highly suggest getting one because skype is the place to be!


Group Super:
Although our premium membership does not expire till March of next year, because of the sudden price hike of "core membership" (#STOPTHECORE), we worry that the same will happen to the cost of a group premium membership. 

In all our years running the group, we've never had to pay the 'normal price', but that may change. Should deviantart decide to return to the 'normal price', it is unlikely that we will ever ask members to donate to the group fund ever again. 

As that hasn't happened yet, we hope to gain the funds to extend the group's premium.
If you have any spare points lying around, any amount will be much appreciated!

:icondonateworldtrain:

As soon as we hit the amount we need, we will extend our group's premium.

We thank everyone in advance for all the help and love they have poured into this group. 
Please don't spend more money than you need to in order to buy points. Especially if you intend to boycott the current prices of a premium membership!

Features from missions:
We realized that we haven't featured any location/mission related art and wish to amend that.

To keep everything as fair as possible, we limited the amount of times an artist had a hand in the artwork to prevent over saturation of a single person's art in the featured folder! We've chosen one to two deviations from each location starting from 2014. Featured art will receive 1CP each.

Since we will be rearranging these deviations as best as we can according to the dates they were submitted, they won't be seen unless someone were to open the featured folder. So, we wish to recognize these members and their art for their fun and creative ways of completing the assigned missions.

7.26.2015>> [Announcement] SURPRISE! New member results!


Sure, we said the results would be out on the 30th. Well, we lied. Now let's unveil our new and returning members!

:icontheaymanman::iconobichobi::iconsildrae::iconalbo-beati7::icongaaralover-chan::iconnoizi::iconthatlazybear::iconqueencrow:

Congratulations and welcome to the group! We hope that you'll continue to enjoy your stay on the World Train and join us for more crazy adventures! You will all be added to the registry in the next day or two. Thank you for your patience!

If you weren't accepted, here's what you can do:
    :bulletgreen: Note the group and ask why you weren't accepted. 
DO NOT:
    :bulletred: Contact individual admins via Skype, notes, comments, facebook, etc. etc.
               Admins have been instructed to redirect you to a group note and then ignore further questions.

Now, we know that the RP requirement has been difficult for many of you, new and old members alike. We extend a huge thank you for participating and helping out! We'd also like to recognize the hard work of one member in particular who has at least 9 roleplays!
:iconcrownplz:
:iconrainbowsparkleplz::iconsolitairre::iconrainbowsparkleplz:

Old members who participated in the RP requirement, this is for you. To receive the rewards for your RP Req roleplays, please coordinate with your partner and count up individual word counts. After that, note the group and title it 'RP Requirement'. In the note, include the word counts and a link to the document. We would like the old members to note the group since you'll have multiple RPs to send and this way, it'll cut down on the amount of notes we will get.

If you wish to continue the RP, just make a mark in the RP doc of where you're at so that when you resend the  RP later on to collect the rest of your rewards, you'll only count what wasn't sent earlier, if that makes sense. 

If you have any questions, just leave a comment!






Old journals will be moved to Google Drive at the top of every month.

Just to clarify for those that are working on the picture. Please, PLEASE save the unframed image as 700px x 495px. This would make it easier for me to link them together. You may upload the framed version to dA but at least send me a note to the stash of the one without the frame! Sorry about the inconvenience you guys.

Well than! I can easily resize for you if you keep it around this size when you're working on it~ gyazo.com/4a730fcdea7aefc53465…

I used auctionrepair.com/pixels.html at a standard 75 dpi.

Is the wedding event only for official members and are unofficial members able to draw art and submit it later if they make it into the opening? 
Reply
:iconstabrina:
Stabrina Featured By Owner May 4, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
It's only for official members because the due date for submissions is the 10th of June. New members will be announced mid July. ^^"

Naaaw that's a shame~ I've been rping Fern with Cinder and it's honestly the single most sweetest thing I have ever rped.
Am I allowed to still do a polaroid and submit it to the group if I'm successful in the opening indicating that Fern only just recently found the picture after going through her stash of hoarded items? (She's a compulsive hoarder). 
Reply
:iconstabrina:
Stabrina Featured By Owner May 7, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
The polaroid memes are used only for specific events to prevent members from abusing their use. What you could do though, is draw 'fan art' of the wedding, if that works. :) Then if Fern gets into the group, you can submit it and receive the rewards for it.
