MOD POST [ Additional Suggestions; Festival 2007 ]  
As the time draws closer, I think it's important that everything is done orderly and timely. I have already developed a list of events and ideas for the festival. Some are return ideas and events that were very successful, such as our "caption contest" and our "festival soundtrack" thread. However, it would also be nice to mix in some new things to keep things interesting and new. This is where you guys come in. We had some wonderful suggestions last year, and some more would be greatly appreciated.


If you would like to contribute an idea for the festival, please do so here. For members who participated in last years festival, if there is an event or contest you really enjoyed and want to see return, please let me know here! Yep, just comment here.

Also, this is the time to voice any concerns you may have. If there was something you hated about the festival, feel free to let me know as well. No point doing something no one liked.

For those who need a refresher of some of the things accomplished in last years festival, here is the 2006 NejiTen Festival Directory.

Those wishing to assist me in the festival, please leave comments for when the Help Thread is posted tomorrow. I really do appreciate the enthusiasm though! This is looking to be an even bigger and better festival then last year. Thank you all for your cooperation. ♥

Let's do the Round Robin again. It was fun and I enjoyed it. Only this time, we should add a rule about the ending of the Round Robin (since last time, there was no ending).

That can be done. I think I have a quick solution for that. :D Thanks.

no festival without the neji!abuse :OO

I second Round Robin! I have no writing skills myself, but I loved reading it. Also, I really enjoyed the 10 for 10 challenge and the Scavenger Hunt, so something like that would be much win ♥

As for new things, hmm. maybe something like the awesome that was the Team Gai fanart entry you had in your journal some time back, just NejiTen? you know, since none of us can resist the pretties. :D

If I can think of anything else, I'll be sure to let you know. wahh, I can't wait for this! *spin*

A Neji abuse CRACK THREAD? I support.

=D =D =D
Cat: NejiTen [ hearts ]light_flower on December 11th, 2007 01:50 pm (UTC)
I fully support this suggestion XDD

I'd also like to support a SHIRTLESS THREAD, in which we gleefully post things involving shirtlessness, mudfights, interesting things done with edible products, and nosebleeds.

Gratuitous fanservice, by the fans!
Cat: NejiTen [ tell a story ]light_flower on December 11th, 2007 02:34 pm (UTC)
.. APPROVED. I like your way of thinking 8D but shouldn't the top secret load of smut be added to that? :o IT WOULD BE COMPLETE!

Can't live without it!
Toboe LoneWolf: [Naruto] Don't You Daretoboe_lonewolf on December 11th, 2007 06:03 pm (UTC)
Well, due to recent LJ policy additions then we'd have to mark the thread as "Explicit Adult Content" and some people would not be able to comment logged in...we'd have to have two threads then, one to be flagged "Adult Concepts" and one with "Explicit Adult Content" and I don't know if we'd be able to keep both active. It depends on how we'd want to organize this...

Cat: NejiTen [ in your arms ]light_flower on December 11th, 2007 09:06 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah, you're right. :| but then, hmm.. We'll make a post EACH. and then we'll link them together and command everyone to post in both(if they can) at least once a day OR ELSE *insert cruel NejiTen-less punishment here* ♥

Cosmo-san: NejiTen [ training ]blooming_cosmo on December 12th, 2007 07:41 pm (UTC)
I believe that can be arranged. :3

*___* *pleased*

*is pleased that you're pleased*

lawl I'm excited and confused XD
'whoever posts the most fanart wins a prize' contest!"

If we set a time, maybe we could all meet on a oekaki board? You know, those live ones where you can draw and chat together.
Toboe LoneWolf: [Ouran] Say What?!?toboe_lonewolf on December 11th, 2007 11:43 pm (UTC)
Oh! I was totally going to suggest a "community drawing" get-together!

The problem is, where do we get an oekaki board...XP
Cat: NejiTen [ hearts ]light_flower on December 12th, 2007 07:05 am (UTC)
*raises hand* I LIKE THIS IDEA TOO.

We could just get one of those oekakies.com ones that most japanese sites are using? They're not hard to set up, even though everything is in japanese. *been using it before* most of the buttons are customizable, no sign-ups, and for everything else we could make a simple how-to-use guide? I wouldn't mind setting up one for us and writing said guide if we went along with it. :D

edit: *headdesk* I just got the 'oekaki' part. it's 8am, can you blame me? but we could have both? on Oekakies things will be saved too. not sure about twiddla when it comes to that. but at least it would be something for us with retarded timezones? 8D I CAN'T BE THE ONLY ONE RIGHT.

*___* If you can set one up, do you think you can help me organize the oekakies thing? That would be awesome. I'll try and IM you before the end of the week after finals are done killing my soul. ♥
Cat: NejiTen [ mine ]light_flower on December 12th, 2007 09:13 pm (UTC)
Will do! ♥ I'll probably be on AIM more this weekend(you know like, the time you are on), so I'll poke you if I see you~
Cosmo-san: Gai [ kicking ass and taking names ]blooming_cosmo on December 12th, 2007 10:00 pm (UTC)
Awesome! This will be lots of fun. I can already tell. >3
Sapphire Lunasapphireluna on December 12th, 2007 09:30 pm (UTC)
I do own an oekaki board, but it's a regular one. The live board are commonly called paintchat
Cosmo-san: Team Gai [ i am yours ]blooming_cosmo on December 12th, 2007 07:42 pm (UTC)
Confused? Can I help clear the confusion? XD
Hrmmm...I shall proceed to put a modified version of this up. >D

That would be awesome! If we can set one up, then definitely. HAHAHA. That would be kick ass. XDD
Sapphire Lunasapphireluna on December 12th, 2007 09:27 pm (UTC)
I guess the confusion will clear when it starts ^_^;

Search Google for paintchat. There are some free online ones already. http://www.mangamasters.com/pchat/
This is one, however random people are there, as you can see. I'll try to ask my friend, she knows more about it.
Toboe LoneWolf: [Naruto] Don't You Daretoboe_lonewolf on December 12th, 2007 12:38 am (UTC)
Kyaaa, sapphireluna already suggested the community wide art get together (maybe twiddla? No need for a sign-up).

Hm. Just thinking off the top of my head, but a maybe a "what if" post? "If Neji did this..." and the next poster would respond with "Tenten would..." and then continue with a "If Tenten/Neji" proposal (OKAY I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE THAT IDEA CAME FROM FINALZ SCREWING WITH MY MIIIIIIIIIND)

Or a "let's see where we can find Nejiten!" like Nejiten in other fandoms (like that Nejiten FMA fanart with them as Roy&Riza) or their astrological significance or the Google Autocomplete thing I found recently or randomly one day you noticed that the buildings of your school are arranged to spell out Nejiten (yeah, so that'll never happen...except with Photoshop >D).

One other thing. Since this festival's going to be a month long event, could you make the directory "now", (temporarily) add it to the comm's link, and update it as we go? It'll make it easier to find old continuing posts (like the Round Robin, or challenge details) when time as passed and posts get pushed down our f-lists and the comm. And plus, holiday vacations and all, and it'll be hard to catch everything the day they're up.
Cosmo-san: Haruhi/Twins [ between ]blooming_cosmo on December 12th, 2007 07:47 pm (UTC)
*__* Awesome! I think I'll need to keep you and light_flower on hand for this whole thing. It will be awesome though.

I love all of your ideas though. If you have anymore, please let me know!

I was actually going to add the directory list right after I put up my help wanted list. XD It shall be up momentarily.
Cassandra's Destinymycassandra on December 13th, 2007 11:27 am (UTC)
I'm not sure if this can still be accommodated, seeing as the suggestion is quite late, but we can do something that both artists and writers alike can participate in. It's similar to the Round Robin thing (hoping I understood the system correctly), fused with both "magazine marvel" and "story boxes".

*sweat drops* Hope I'll be able to explain this properly. ^_^

Begin with a story segment (a word limit may be specified), the next person may post a fanart or a chosen magazine/book/manga scan [or any random picture]. The next story segment must relate to the previous picture. So, it's fic part, art, fic part, art, and so on and so forth.

Haha, now I'm just confused. 0_o

Oh, oh, oh! How about movie posters? ♥
ghostwriter_luv on December 14th, 2007 04:19 pm (UTC)
Maybe a raffle? Posters have to respond within a certain time frame after they are issued a number? I don't know, it sounded good until I started typing -_-;
