2010-07-12 [Nioniel]: :)

2010-07-12 [Daisy le Fleur]: Woohoo, thanks for the advertising in your house =)

2010-07-12 [Nioniel]: No problem!
Would you like me to do a mass invite?

2010-07-12 [Daisy le Fleur]: Hermm...well, that is up to you..if you know of people that would be interested and wouldn't be peeved about being "mass invited." Some folks are very touchy.

2010-07-12 [Nioniel]: Ah, well, if they don't like it, they don't have to participate, and it could give the contest a good bump.
I think mostly that if people don't want to participate, they simply won't do more than look the page over real quick and move along onto their other business.

2010-07-12 [Daisy le Fleur]: I agree, and ditto on the page bump!

2010-07-12 [Nioniel]: W007!
*goes for it*

2010-07-12 [Flisky]: Is there a deadline???

2010-07-13 [Skydancer]: Hmmmmmm.

2010-07-13 [sweet.tx.tea]: *lurks*

2010-07-13 [Daisy le Fleur]: No deadline has been set, this contest has been running for quite some time now.. heh heh, just needs more interest!

2010-07-20 [Foxy Shazam]: I like this concept. You should try for a photography version of this contest. Could be fun, and there could be humorous entries :)

2010-07-20 [Daisy le Fleur]: Not bad.. I wouldnt mind adding a section for photography honestly. Anyone else think it would go well?

2010-07-20 [Nioniel]: I'd like to say yes, but honestly, participation has been way down on this site (clearly) so I don't know that you'd get more than one or two entries.

2010-07-20 [Foxy Shazam]: That is true, I must admit. It would be worth giving it a shot, though, I think. Why not try something like a trial period? Open it up for a month and see who is interested. If it's less than five/ten people, close it down. With the right advertising it could have potential. If not this "trial period", try a public poll and see what the photographers from similar wikis think about the idea?

2010-08-21 [Rondel]: Count me appreciative of the invite. I've only recently come back to this site after a long period of social inactivity, and it was the invite that led me here. I'll have to see if I can get something done up in a reasonable period of time; I know that I found Wynken, Blynken, and Nod to be a surprisingly useful inspiration for one of my first oekaki experiments, even though the result was far outside of my usual style... ...I think this kind of genre can be useful for getting people to play with ideas that might not otherwise have occurred to them. I know I found some of the entries to be a surprising departure from the kind of imagery I associate with some of the entrants (including some whose artwork I tend to remember and look for, whenever I see their names on an art site) -- but a good one, don't get me wrong! :D

2011-02-05 [Crimson]: I haven't felt like doing anything in quite a while...but I've recently read some of the fun...more morbid versions of these fairy tails so I have a little inspiration.
Now if I could only get my scanner working again...or buy a new one...

2011-02-08 [Daisy le Fleur]: Most of these came from the Grimm Brothers who were not so "Disney" about the morals and depictions of characters I"m always interested to see what folks come up with.

2011-02-27 [Crimson]: I just wish they still circulated the original "Grimm Tales"...the ones that included all the sexual references and violence...not the "toned down" version that is out now. :/

2011-02-27 [Viking]: It is still available. You just have to look for it.
