Although the project is on indefinite hiatus, this group will stay open to anyone and everyone, although updates will stop. If anyone wishes to chat, I'm always available, although I've been less active on deviantArt recently so there may be long stretches between replies.

Thank you everyone for coming along for the ride.

    * Male, female, background template
[Skye: Endless Realm] - Male Avatar Template by muddymelly [Skye: Endless Realm] - Female Avatar Template by muddymelly [Skye: Endless Realm] - Background Template by muddymelly
    * Note that due to the low resolution of these photoshop (.psd) files, it is suggested to manually scale the images up before drawing on them; and then possibly scaling them back down when submitting them.

(2) SUBMISSION FORM
+ You will need a Skye username.
+ Also requires files to be in .psd format, and below 10MB. If multiple .psds are to be submitted at once, it is suggested to archive them into a single .zip file
+ Sometimes the jotform "goes over quota" or is otherwise unavailable. In these cases, it is suggested to wait until the beginning of the next month, when the jotform quota will reset and submissions will be open again.

(3) (fan) GROUPS: connect with others!
+ [ SKYE: WORLD CHANGERS ] FACEBOOK GROUP
    * A place for artists to upload and share their designs with other artists and Skye Citizens.
    * (tumblr post) original Help Needed Post for artists and coders to help with Skye, which eventually spread into:
    *the formation of the Skye: World Changers Facebook group, as well as the #skyeworldchanger and #skyeworldchangers tags on twitter and tumblr [and deviantart]

-- (BETA) FORUMS The beta-testing forums from Aug/Oct 2014, which are still running and in use. Come chat! Anything and everything goes, even spam. When signing up, it is suggested to use your Skye username for easier recognition.

6. Previous Contests
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1. Introduction
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Not everyone expresses themselves in a manner directly suitable for creating fashion [ie not everyone wants to design clothes directly]. Therefore, this contest is being hosted to bridge that gap and to create unique, inspirational ideas directly from the community at large.
Note that this contest will be hosted simultaneously on this Deviantart group, on the Discourse forum, and on the Facebook Skye: World Changers group.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
2. Rules
~~~~~~~~~~~~
In the beginning, a theme (or multiple themes) are announced. These will generally be broad categories, for example "Autumn Equinox." Submissions are accepted relating to the theme.
Acceptable submissions include:
    - inspirational phrases

It seems that regular members can't submit to any folder other than the featured folder, and I can't unlock this option. So I'll be promoting everyone to contributor, which will allow submissions, until I find a more efficient way. You'll have to agree to being promoted manually though.

Alternately you can submit to Featured first and I'll manually move them to your folder.

Sorry about the trouble! ><
