Hello Amassment members! :heart:

Are you ready for a new event? Our second challenge of 2017 is called Something New and, as you may have guessed from its name, its aim is to push you out of your comfort zone and explore something you have never done before (or have tried to, but didn't succeed). The "new" part may be very general (an anime shrine) or specific (a female videogame character). It's up to you to choose what will be the focus of your shrine!

Rules

Before joining remember that:
  • Your shrine must have a new element, something none of your current shrines have.
  • Any shrine subject and size is accepted!
  • You are welcome to sign up for more than one subject and join other events or member run marathons held at the same time of Something New.
  • You CAN plug your shrine on the board as well as on your own website/social media accounts.
Sign up

To sign up for this challenge please post the following information in a reply to this post. If you do not want to reveal the subject of your shrine, you can send me (Sofia) PM. As always, sign ups will remain open throughout the event but the deadline will remain the 23rd February, no matter when you signed up. Should you need to make changes to your application or drop out, please let me know!
Name: ---
Collective (optional): ---
Subject: ---
Your "new" element: ---

When your site is ready, please plug it in the Something New subforum with a 200x40 button.

I'm not sure if I'm supposed to ask my questions in this thread as well, but here they are:

1) Does it have to be a completely new shrine or can I add new elements to an existing shrine/massively revamp an existing shrine so that it becomes "new"?

2) Can the "new" part be something technical/design related, i.e: implementing a new script, making a non-responsive site responsive etc.?

Thank you in advance.

Your "new" element: Animation Character instead of a video game character.

(is it okay if i sign up for this. I was just planning on doing a fanlisting since I got approved for it, but I decided to expand it into a shrine. The site already exists per-se, just sent it in today. But there is no real character/shrine content.)

Questions are totally fine!

1) While we would prefer that everyone sign-up with a new shrine, we can make exceptions, especially if it's a site that hasn't been online in a while. Otherwise, it would go into our Shrine Revamp marathon. However, if it's something you feel strongly about wanting to include in this marathon as you will be making incredibly massive changes, feel free to PM either myself or Sofia details for your plan and we'll discuss it further. We're pretty flexible!

2) The "new" element can be design related as long as it's something major you haven't done on any other shrine before!

Your "new" element: --- American TV Animated show character!! This is a throw back love for me that I have recently began to re-indulge in. I have never made a site to an animated TV show character before, and I am excited to give it a shot! :D (Also she's an alien and I've never made one to an alien either hehe)
