    I think the hard stuff works better for the holidays, because we're taking our own culture and putting an SW twist on it, thus coming up with some really funny veggies.

    I don't think I could do these type of challenges every month I might pass out. lol

    But that's just me . . . and I could be 8-}

    For me, the challenges wiith lots of requirements are kind of hard, especially when they're high on the absurdity scale, because it's harder to do something that's in-character and not contrived. But that's just me, and not just here, because I've found that at other sites, too. At my site, I've found we get the best results when we just give one or two details to be worked in, and maybe throw something technical in to challenge our writing skills (must be first person, cannot use a certain word, etc.).

    Hmmm... I see the points both of you have...

    Better to keep it simple and have the characters -in character- than make it absurd or difficult to make them not Han and Leia anymore...

    Is any one else having trouble with the boards tonight? Pages are loading very slow for me, and they're incomplete (no avatars, no fancy border pics, etc).

    I'm having the same problem . . . the boards are acting funny.

    As far as the challenges go - I think the really specific ones like this past March one is good every once in a while. Just to keep us on our toes. Like I said before I think they work great for holidays, just not every month.

    Another idea is if we have lots of requirements, maybe make it something like "Pick any two of the following..." or something. Multiple choice, and let the author run with it.

    Are we doing one for April by any chance?

    Perhaps one that's generically spring-related?

    Yes, there will be one for April... I've just been super busy, and DRL is kidnapping me like mad.

    soooo....


    I doubt I'll be able to update until at the very earliest this weekend - latest, Monday night. So look for it this weekend or early next week :)

    Ok Ladies and Gents, We're currently working on a Re-vamp of the index - and we're starting in a new thread to boot so we have the space we'll need.

    So the New Bespin Café is [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Message.aspx?topic=23630153&brd=10304&start=23630219]Version 2.0[/link] which means we're going to be locking this thread and asking everyone to head over to the other one!

    Hope you like it - drop Lady Padme a note and tell her how much you like her new buttons!

    Update is completed.

    Locking this thread so that the new one will thrive! Thanks everyone ;)[:D]
