Artisanal and Bardic Changes

SunnySunny Member Posts: 94 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
I was reading the newest ANNOUNCE NEWS #4586 and found it a bit lacking in details. In it there seems to be hints that the A&B are not going to be held regularly anymore. Was curious if that's just a mislead or if there is a bigger plan in the works. As a follower of Lord Scarlatti, I am very curious on this subject. I know I haven't been submitting any real pieces yet, except for this last one, but I'd very much like to know what to expect in the future with the Artisanl and Bardics. Thanks!

    The Artisanal and Bardic contests won't be held on a regular quarterly basis anymore. Instead we'll open contests on occasion when we think it's fitting! (I.E July for the Death and Undeath themes.)

    My exact thoughts, word for word.

    Would be very disappointing if artbards were even MORE spread out, now. *sigh*
    Huh. Neat.

    Thank you @Nicola. I was curious if that means there will sometimes not be any at all?
  • NicolaNicola Administrator Posts: 492 Achaean staff
    When between contests there won't be an Artisanal or Bardic contest running, correct.

    @Nicola as a trade-off can we have more greathunts? (or any :angry: )
    Huh. Neat.

    The change makes me sad, really...

    And you won't understand the cause of your grief...

    Oh honestly! my first attempt at a bardic wasn't that bad you had to scrap the whole competition.

    @Nicola Are there going to be any further changes to the contest, like any of the rules? Will the credit prizes stay the same despite having a shorter period to make the visual/written art? Also, don't forget to add the contest and additional info (like the theme) to UPCOMING
    You know, that one thing at that one place, with that one person.

    Yea, that one!

    When are results going to be announced? 

    The anticipation is killing me! <3 you guys for doing these things.  Judging all the time must be crazy busy.
    Commission List: Aesi, Kenway, Shimi, Kythra, Trey, Sholen .... 5/5 CLOSED
    I will not draw them in the order that they are requested... rather in the order that I get inspiration/artist block.
