Tell us how you feel about this new layout here! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=409681.0
All challenges are now in one area!
The Craftster Craft Challenges category
will now host not only the official monthly Craftster Craft Challenges
but it will also hold all of the category challenges run by our category moderators!
The category itself is pretty much the same except that we've beefed up the descriptions to help differentiate between boards related to our official monthly Craftster Craft challenge and our Category Challenges.
To see what Category Challenges are running at any given time, just go into the Category Challenges board
and you'll be able to see each child board, one for every category that runs challenges! Here you'll be able to see if there are new posts that you haven't seen and what and when the most recent posts were.
We hope to always have one thread in each challenge entry board; possibly a "what challenges would you like to see" thread or something similar. Once a new challenge is underway, an explanation or announcement thread will be added in.
Our category moderators will still promote the challenges within their normal categories but by having the "nuts and bolts" of the challenges in one area, you'll be able to get information about the challenges either via the category OR by visiting the Category Challenges board for central viewing of all current category challenges.
Once a challenge is over, the entries will be tagged with the relevant tag for the challenge and returned to the completed projects area of the main category. We've already done this to the threads that were living in the Challenge Archive boards for each category and those boards will soon be deleted.
We hope you like this new layout and hopefully it will make it easier not only to challenge your crafty self but also help you win more cool stuff!
Also, in celebration of the fancy new digs we hope to host a new category challenge in EVERY category in the next 3 months!
