The Atlas submission period for judging has now closed. Contest entries submitted to the Atlas from this point on WILL NOT BE JUDGED.

Anyone who submitted to the Atlas on time, but had their entries rejected due to application or link reasons, WILL still be judged provided they edit what needs to be edited before judging is over.

Frosty Festivities is now over! DO NOT EDIT YOUR SUBMISSIONS. Judging will run for about a week, then after results are posted - ONLY after - members can edit their submissions.

For those of you that don't want your submissions judged, you can edit at any time, but you must say in the description that your submission isn't being judged. We will be looking out for anyone attempting to circumvent this rule.

Members have one day, ending October 20, 11:59 PM GMT-0, to submit their judged entries to the Atlas. Once that timeframe passes, entries submitted to the Atlas afterward WILL NOT BE JUDGED.

As the 18th winds down, PMDU's first anniversary draws to a close. And with it... The first event of the new PMDU year is up!

Entries will be submitted to the new Contests folders. Make sure you choose the correct medium for your entries!

Thanks for sticking with us. It's been a bumpy ride so far, but we're looking for smoother roads here on out. Let's look forward to a great second year of PMDU!

Member submission to the Atlas is mandatory for group participation. This off-site database allows admins to check through member's submissions in a more organized manner while taking the load of keeping track of inventory off of members' shoulders.

Countdown ended
Sunday, October 19th @ 4:59pm

The deadline for the Frosty Festivities contest has passed! Thank you all who got your submissions in on time.

:bulletred: :bulletyellow: :bulletgreen: DO NOT EDIT YOUR ENTRIES. :bulletgreen: :bulletyellow: :bulletred:

Just a few important notices before we get to the actual conclusion part of this event:

If you DO want to be judged:

:bulletblue: You have ONE DAY, ending October 20, 11:59 PM GMT-0, to submit your entries to the Atlas for judging. Entries submitted after that timeframe WILL NOT BE JUDGED (members will still receive body paint either way, as that's a participation reward). We'll post this journal again when the cutoff time comes.

:bulletred: OCT 21 EDIT: This bonus timeframe for judged submissions to be put into the Atlas is now over. Contest entries submitted to the Atlas from here on out will no longer be eligible for judging, though they will still be eligible for the base Body Paint reward. Anyone who submitted to the Atlas on time, but had their entries rejected due to application or link reasons, WILL still be judged if they so choose, provided they edit what needs to be edited before judging is over.

:bulletblue: You may not edit your submission(s) until after judging has concluded.

:bulletblue: Members caught attempting to improve their entries for judging will be stripped of all contest rewards (including body paint) and will be ineligible for placement.

If you do NOT want to be judged:

:bulletblue: Write in the description that you do not want to be judged. Once you include this, it is final; you cannot reverse your decision.

:bulletblue: You may edit your submission(s) at any time.

:bulletblue: You may submit to the Atlas at any time.

:bulletblue: Do note you CANNOT use the body paint until your submission has been verified on the Atlas, so if you want to use it, best submit to the Atlas fairly soon.

Now, with that out of the way... Judging all of these entries is expected to take about two weeks. During the judging period, verification on other Atlas entries will for the most part be temporarily on hold, and we greatly appreciate member patience in this regard and apologize for the wait on some of these submissions. As soon as judging has been concluded the Atlas will move back to the normal swing of things and we'll start getting some of those older events out of the way.

Contest entries, as with all other PMDU events, need to have the participating team's official application(s) linked in the description, as well as include the application links for all cameoed teams. That said, we're aware that dA is wreaking havoc on links in general recently. If you're having difficulty pasting your links into the description, try pasting the link elsewhere (such as, Microsoft Word, Notepad, or a similar text editing program), write in the HTML coding for a link, then copy that entire line and drop it into the description. It SHOULD work, but if it doesn't, please let us know so we can figure out another method.

EDIT: Some members have helpfully put forward alternate methods here, here, and here, so if the HTML trick doesn't work, members can try these as well.

Atlas entries will be declined, and thus require resubmission, if these links aren't in place, so please include them as soon as you can.

Last but certainly not least, a big thank you to everyone who participated, you guys really made PMDU's first contest awesome~

Since I got a note to renew my app, I already did the new picture app, but since the m1 is not judged yet, I am not sure putting the new pic, should I make the 'not wearing' accessories one and change it?

Hey I designed this guy and I was wondering if he was too far from the original.
cailas-moon Featured By Owner 11 hours ago  Hobbyist General Artist
A bit canine for standard Snubbull, but this should be fine, so long as you keep in mind that it should be able to take its normal bipedal stance at any time.

cailas-moon Featured By Owner 16 hours ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Of course.
Videogamer80 Featured By Owner 16 hours ago  Hobbyist Writer
Alright. So... how far r u guys in the drawing and writing judging?
cailas-moon Featured By Owner 16 hours ago  Hobbyist General Artist
Let's just say there's a reason we expected judging to take two weeks.
Howlingwind87 Featured By Owner 18 hours ago  Hobbyist Digital Artist
um... can I submit a hand drawn application? I'm no good with writing or drawing on the computer, and I REALLY want to participate in this group. ._.' If not, I guess I could figure something out..
cailas-moon Featured By Owner 18 hours ago  Hobbyist General Artist
You couldn't slap the app image into MS Paint and work on it that way? For the team member pics, it's fine if you draw them and scan them in/take pictures of them, but you should be able to fill out the stats, moves, etc. on the computer somehow. You could even have a friend help with that part if necessary. Doesn't matter if it looks sloppy, as long as we can read everything.

If that doesn't work out, though, you can print out an official app and draw/write on that, then scan it in, but I'm afraid we don't accept completely hand-drawn apps. If worse comes to worst and you can't participate via art, I'm afraid the written application is the only other option.
