This sounds super fun, but I have a few questions before I consider joining. I don't want to muddle things up after the fact. Tongue

1. What is a ninja?

2. Is there a requirement for how many projects need to be entered throughout the craftalong? My schedule gets really chaotic (I'll have nothing going on for a couple weeks, when next thing I know I'm not at home except to eat and sleep). Would I be risking losing pts for my team?

3. Do we have to part of every geekdom a team represents? (For example, Team of Ships and Men has a few I've never seen before)

4. Can we declare our own set of geekdoms?

I'm really sorry if these questions have been asked before. With 80+ pages to this thread, I just didn't know where to look. Thanks so much!

let's see if I get these right.  Tongue

1.  a person who is working independently.  someone who is not part of a team.

2.  nope.  craft as much or as little as you wish.

3.  oh no.  if you don't know some parts of a geekdom, that's perfectly fine.  work with what you know.  but you can also learn about other parts of the geekdom.

4.  this one I'm not really sure about.  I know you kinda can if you're a ninja, but I'm not sure about teams.  pinkleo or someone a little clearer on this would definitely be helpful here.   Cheesy

Ah, thank you, Krafty  Wink. That helps a lot. I just found the ninja bit going through the info post again, whoops. I guess I should read more thoroughly next time.

How do I join? Do I send a PM to pinkleo or do I just declare it here?

Man, everyone's projects are coming out so awesome! I feel like a slackster because I haven't even finished anything yet. Sad
Haha, "slackster," I love it!  But don't worry, the games are long and summer has just begun! 

I'm going to join you "slacksters". Smiley I've only submitted one challenge so far, May's Battle Royale! But I have plans...so many plans, just not enough time!

You don't need to do anything special to join.  Just post a project that completes one of the prompts or challenges, with the appropriate project header (found in the first post) here in the thread.

But over in the Nerd Games thread, not here in the discussion thread. I get them mixed up all the time  Roll Eyes

And you can declare your team/ninja by posting your declaration before posting a project. Just say what you want!  Smiley

Kiss KK, jennie, and for your great guidance! Kiss

YES!  If Craftster has a board for it, then it is accepted in the Nerd Games. (And really Craftster has a board for everything! Cool)  The main rule to remember is that "Players must craft to the best of their abilities and have a minimum of 30 minutes of crafting time per submission."  ....and have fun! Grin

you're welcome!  I know you have a life, and since I don't, I'm happy to help out when I can.  Cheesy

ok, so I kinda have a life, but it primarily consists of working on this *#^$!(& project!!!  I still have a LONG way to go, and I'm beginning to wonder if I'll be done by the end of the month!

I also have an idea for a research project, but I don't want to list it yet as I'm not starting on it until my current back breaking/eye straining/finger killing project is done.  my research project won't be anything like this (if anything it'll be easier).  shoot.  actually, I have 2 ideas, but I want to do the other one first.  besides, I don't know if I have enough stuffing for the second one...

Looking forward to seeing the project, Krafty!  Smiley

I haven't gushed enough about how significant this craft-along has been in my life.  I had been suffering from a months/year + creative block, and this craft-along has busted me out of it completely; I keep having more ideas and more excitement about new projects!  I'm exploring a new medium for me, embroidery.  Previously I had only done one embroidery at age 8 or so and a few odd pieces with some decorative stitching on them, but nothing like a real piece of art.  I've also enjoyed playing with miniatures and mixed media, and will soon be endeavoring some papercraft as well as felting.

You've got to be freaking kidding me!!! With the masterpieces you are pumping out Ludi, you don't really expect us to believe that this is a new medium for you!!!  Wink  Well, if this is new, I cannot wait to see what you can accomplish when you've mastered it!!!!  Holy crow!!
