Hey everyone, sorry for being totally absent so far in this round. The minions got into the tracking machine and taught it to sing the banana song. It took two months to get it to stop marking the prompts with fruit instead of points  Shocked.
Anyway, we're having an awesome round so far, with more people joining all the time (welcome Algeera Smiley). We currently have 21 players, representing all 5 teams.

As in previous rounds, no prompt has been neglected, with projects submitted for all of the prompts for March and April (and we already have some for May too).

March had us dancing through the decades, and saw many of us make things for our homes and families, prompted by the 40s homemaker (16 projects). And then chillin' with the 60s flower child (15 projects).
When asked to choose between the past and the future, many of us looked back at yesteryear and the battle was decided 12 to 3 for the past.

April took us to the British kingdom for some tea and biscuits. Apparently there is much to be inspired by there, as 15 items were crafted for a favorite British something or someone.
2 distinct British favorite someones were the subject of April's battle, making for some hard decisions. It looks like the chance for traveling through space and time in a blue box won, as the battle was decided 9 to 5 for the Doctor.


How about some individual numbers, you say? Well, here goes...

Topping the chart with 17 projects is Ludi for Team Wordy, who also managed to make the machine spit cogs again, but submitting 2 research projects already (don't worry, we fixed it).
We have a whole bunch of people with 15 projects each: rockingbearranch, bunny1kenobi and gozer of Team Wordy and crazyda79 of Team Randomizer.

So far 194 projects have been submitted this round, and there's still a month to go (and it can go far, by car, train, boat, hot air balloon or unicycle).

And a lovely table for the furniture admirers:

Wordy:2060684
Multimedia:540327
Textbook:400319
Randomizer:770534
Fandom:690430

Want a link to the machine? Have some silly numbers question? Wondering about the banana song? Just send your request my way and it will be taken care of Smiley

Keep on being awesome.

I see, that makes sense.
Can you tell me what text the phrase "pile of flesh" replaced? I can't figure that one out.

I think the zombies left some stuff lying around. I still see the replaced phrases in some posts.

It might be some kind of zombie diet, eating pictures of people.
I forgot all about this till I got home from work and started seeing lots of people eating stuff on the forum, only then I noticed the rest of the changes Smiley

Oh boy, was planning on posting a tracking update today, but I think I'll wait for the zombies to pass through first.

Glad to see you, craftADDchick, I was starting to get worried about team Textbook. Thought they might have been locked in the library or just started reading something and forgot to stop (I do that a lot, and then wonder why I can't wake up in the morning).
I'm sure we'll be seeing a few more players pop in in the next few hours, as it is the end of the month.

I managed to complete a few projects, I'll post the 2 time-sensitive ones today and the rest will follow later.

Prompt: March Flash Mob
Team: Fandom
Bonus Points: 0
Project Name: flower ponytail holders
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description:
I was born in the 70s, and crochet was very popular at the time. I found a tutorial for crocheting a simple flower, so I made myself one attached to a hair elastic. Along came miss "what are you making for me?", who is always interested in what I am making, and usually assumes it's for her. At 4 years old, it makes sense, as she's the center of her universe. I told her this one is for me, so she requested one in purple.
The tutorial can be found here:

Project Picture:



Prompt: March Battle Royal - Future
Team: Fandom
Bonus Points: UFO
Project Name: watermelon bracelet
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description:
Watermelons always remind me of summer, so this project could go either way, past or future. I chose to go with future, as I plan to wear this bracelet in the near future, as summer approaches. It makes me think of all the fun stuff we are going to do this summer - beach, hiking, visiting friends, soap bubbles splashing in the back yard, and I'm sure we're going to have plenty of watermelons and other yummy summer fruit.
Project Pictures:
It might be to tell but the white part is actually a very light pink and a very light minty green.

-- Project Tracks - Quick Update --

Our wonderful gamemaker, LovelyMiss, pointed out some loose screws in the tracking machine, resulting in missing projects, and some strange numbers (it was counting some players twice). The right screwdriver (a sonic one, of course) and some elbow grease and things should be updated now.

The most up to date numbers are:

TeamPointsPlayersProjects
Wordy:1690671
Multimedia:980747
Textbook:420218
Randomizer:1410662
Fandom:450320

If you are wondering which prompts you have left, how many yummy points you've gathered so far, or any other random bit of trivia (for example, tonight is a full moon), just let me know Smiley

FreakieGeekie -we're team Fandom, we just have to like stuff, not know how to do it :-p
I sometimes can't math either, which is why I built the tracking machine, to do it for me.
I can send you the link if you want.

Thanks everyone, it's fun to be able to keep track of something Smiley
Calabaza the stats were for up to the end of January, Randomizers were super busy posting in the first couple of days of February, so you're numbers could be different. The current total for team Randomizer is 1270 points, does that match your count?

Happy February everyone!
This is your trackless tracker, reporting live from deep within cyberspace (or from her computer chair, but cyberspace sounds way more exciting, maybe I'll rename my chair).

The end of the second month of the round has come, and we're at 193 complete projects.
We have 25 members playing this round, representing all 5 teams.

As always, no prompt went uncrafted, and we even have 3 completed research projects in this round.
Topping the charts is December's Flash Mob, with 18 projects representing our various home countries or cultural roots.
Following right behind are the battles, with 17 projects each. After North winning the last battle, people have had enough of the cold, and Warm won this round, with 12 cuddly, snuggly or otherwise sunny projects.

storeboughtcreations of team Multimedia has been keeping up with the prompts and managed to complete them all so far (excluding Research), for a total of 17 projects. gozer of team Wordy, with the same number of completions, is missing just one prompt, but has a Research project to show for it. In case you're wondering, the missing prompt is "You're as Cold as Ice", so gozer can still complete all the projects.
but remember, 1 project or 20, it doesn't matter, the point is to have fun Smiley

And here are the numbers, for anyone who was wondering:
TeamPointsPlayersProjects
Wordy:1530664
Multimedia:940745
Textbook:420218
Randomizer:1090647
Fandom:430419

And remember, any time is craft time.
