1  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Strange Doll Swap (S/U CLOSED; S/O 06/28/16) on: May 26, 2016 06:35:00 AM
Super excited to be partnered with JoyfulClover!  Hope to do some stalking and planning this weekend.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Re: Acrylic paint for terra cotta pots in patio/yard/garden? on: May 26, 2016 03:29:15 AM
I've used it, but I sealed it after.  It took a few coats for the opacity I wanted.  Maybe if you don't want to seal it, you could add an acrylic medium so that it is a little more water and sun proof?  Even a quick coat of Outdoor Mod Podge on just the painted areas would help it hold up.  If you're only planning on the pots lasting a season, then the paint alone might be fine.  Just expect some weathering/chipping/fading.

--RAFFLE FAQ--
What are Raffles, and how do I earn tickets?
Raffles are drawings that take place at the end of the some seasons the Nerd Battles.  You can earn Raffle tickets by completing prompts or Research Projects, or by completing special Raffle Ticket Bonus Opportunities.  At the end of the season you will be awarded your tickets and have the chance to enter them into the prize drawings of your choice.

When are Raffles held?
Raffles are held during the Summer and Winter rounds of the Nerd Games.  You earn tickets year round.  Tickets earned in Spring and Fall carry over to the next round (Spring ---> Summer; Fall ---> Winter).

What are Raffle Ticket Bonus Opportunities?
Each season, special opportunities to earn extra Raffle tickets are available.  There is one ongoing Bonus Opportunity called Throwback projects.

What is a Throwback project?
Throwbacks are projects you crafted, but never turned into the Nerd Games for points, or posted anywhere else on Craftster.  There is no time period when the projects need to have been crafted, but they must have taken at least 30 minute to complete.  You may submit THREE Throwback projects per season.  Each Throwback project will earn ONE Raffle ticket.
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / --Medal Central-- on: May 22, 2016 09:38:49 AM
--Medal Central--
Medals are awards that can be earned by crafting items within certain categories, or "Events."  Medals are not additional prompts, but just an opportunity for more Nerd Games involvement.

Medal Guide
--You have the opportunity to medal in up to five different Events.
--Each project you complete may be submitted under one Event only.
--For your project to qualify for an Event, fill out the Event section of the Completed Project Header when you turn in your project.
--If you complete three or more projects in a single Event, you will medal in that category.
--All medals will be given out during the end of season Award Ceremony.


If you complete:
THREE projects in the same Event you will earn a Bronze Medal.
FOUR projects in the same Event you will earn a Silver Medal.
FIVE projects in the same Event you will earn a Gold Medal.



Events
Yarnology:  Any projects that utilize yarn.

Fabricology:  Any projects that utilize fabric.

Paperology:  Any projects that utilize paper.

Foodology:  Any projects that are edible or otherwise food-inspired.

Craftology:  Woodworking, jewelry, clay, or any projects that do not fit into the other Events.



The Events do not need to be the main focus of the project, but just utilized in some way.  For example, an obvious choice for Yarnology might be a crochet project, but it might also be a project where yarn was used as doll hair, or as part of a bracelet.  Of course, many projects could fit into multiple Event categories, but you can only choose one Event for each project.


Medal Report
The numbers on the chart represent the total number of project each player has submitted for the indicated Event category.  A new chart will be released at the end of each month.
