As first order of business, it transpires that I managed to schedule the competition right around the time of finals and, whilst many of us are still in education or have other ties, this was a bad mistake on my part, something that I will do all that I can to ensure doesn't happen again. As it stands, the competition, for those that were interested, or could be interested, will be re run in a few months time, so stay watching for that. I would really, really love for people to become involved and produce humorous, thought provoking or tear jerking art or stories that can be showcased and, perhaps, win a prize.
Moving on, I feel that the name of this group is outdated. "Zelda Fan Comics", whilst a good and descriptive title, for myself, has the feel of being gimmicky and, perhaps, a little un professional. I know that most, if not all, on this site are not professionals at this, there are some incredibly talented hobbyists out in the community, so saying the name doesn't feel "professional" could seem a little odd. What I am basing this against is other groups, such as Zelda Doujin and Zelda Library, who's names, whilst descriptive, fit what it is that they are trying to achieve. To me, it feels that the current name, as I've said, feels out of place. As such, I would like to change the name, however I need good ideas and the money (
) to do it. This change may not happen for a few months, perhaps after Hyrule Warriors and Smash Brothers are released, and the new Legend of Zelda title for the Wii U is announced. Perhaps this could also tie into a slight change in scope of what is accepted, however any change of scope is merely a thought, currently.
Aside from that, I'd like to take this opportunity to hope you all have a good summer and that you have time to explore your creative sides.SwissHope(P.S. - Donate points here to help the group. Just remember to say that this is for the group.)
