It's now slightly past the middle of the month, so here's a belated Town Haul time request.

What time and day should the next Town Haul take place? Suggested days include Saturday December 20, Sunday December 21, Saturday December 27, and Sunday December 28. Times will be averaged out based on what people say. Remember: give your ideal time. Don't say, "I don't care what time it is," only for the meeting to be at a time you can't attend: speak up and give an ideal time!

Topics to Discuss:
  • Should we rename Fanfiction to Literature? Or create a separate Original Fiction folder? We got tons of writers in the WSW, especially with our National Novel Writing Month experience, so should we rename the Fanfiction folder to better reflect everything we write? Or should we create a new folder altogether for original prose works?
  • Nothing else! December's been pretty slow and somewhat peaceful, but if you have any issues you want to discuss, comment below and we'll cover it!
  • General Project Announcements/Publicity: Got a project you have or somebody's else's that you like? Tell us about it!
If you cannot make it, please post your concerns/announcements in this post. As always, with the possibility of bringing up controversial and hot topic, just remember: keep it civil. Luckily, we've done a great job of bringing up dangerous issues with ease in the past, so let's keep that up.

(Note: For future reference, members can call these, too: that's how this all got started, anyway. Just post a call for a meeting time in the group comments; especially if there's a big pressing issue needing to be discussed.)
So to make the signup for becoming a pokemon trainer easier and more organized for me I have created a spreadsheet for people to sign up for the pokemon rom hack. So if anyone wants to be it just sign up here. Also if anyone wants to help me out during making whether it be creating sprites or making custom music, you can just ask!   spreadsheet:… . Also, News! The gaming tourney from summer is now In winter as well, so this'll try to be a semiannual thing now!… Here's an availability list to make organizing this for me easier. There's a steam group for it as well,… so when  an event will come up you can see it there. IMPORTANT NOTICE!: So I know I don't have all games, I know people here like games like LOL and DOTA so, if you wish to host an event for it, contact me. Please note you will recording so there's footage. Also the tourney will be streamed at so if anyone is free, someone can moderate chat. I believe that is all for now I hope to see ya all at the tourney!~ :iconkeinecat:
EDIT: You can edit those documents also here's the possible games on the list so far:…

It's that time of year! Time for more cross-community animations for A Very Walfas Christmas 2014!

As usual, here are the rules and submission guidelines. Be sure to read them over carefully before starting on your sketch. Over the course of every sketch video we've had, several people got mad after they put in tons of effort for sketches they could not submit. Remember to follow the guidelines, and you'll more likely see your work realized.

  • Preferably, do not make a sketch longer than a minute. However, sketches that run long may be cut into several parts as a running sketch.
  • Touhou Characters Only. No author avatars, no original characters. This is about the Touhou cast. You can have extras like human villagers or random youkai, but use them sparingly.
  • No copyrighted music. All music must be available freely through the artist or via Creative Commons license. This is so we don't get any copyright strikes against the WSW video channel.
  • There is no limit to the number of sketches you may submit. You can submit as many as you can animate. The only catch is that if the final video has trouble rendering due to runtime, some of your sketches might be cut.
  • Virtually anyone may submit sketches. To give you an idea of how open this is, a guy at a restaurant I was compiling the sketches at submitted the 2012 "Christmas Gif" gag.
  • Remember: Not every sketch will get into the video. Some will be cut for quality reasons, others for runtime, others for format reasons, and others for violating the submission guidelines. Don't fret: just upload the video on your channel and we'll gladly link it in the video description.
  • DEADLINE: MIDNIGHT OF DECEMBER 23rd, 2014. However, if you can get your sketch submitted before Spaztique finishes editing, you're fine.

Producers collect sketches and help people find animators or sketch ideas. To become a producer, have ready access to DeviantArt, Skype, Raidcall, and/or DropBox or some way to send sketches over to Spaztique for editing/compiling.

Dedicated Animators:
Dedicated animators will take your sketch ideas and animate them. Both animators and the sketch submitter are credited during each sketch to show who made what. If you want to become an animator, just sign up and have your animating software ready.

Wax Editing Software (It's free!):
Want to animate your own sketch? Good news! I've recently discovered a new freeware video editor that's actually quite good! I've tested it before, and it works! Introducing Wax! Think of it as the Gimp to Sony Vegas: multi-layer editing, multiple rendering styles, even particle and 3d text effects! However, like Gimp, there is a learning curve, but there are tons of tutorials on the main site to help you get started.

With that, we all look forward to the sketches and ideas you got in store for us this year! If you got ideas to submit, or want to become an animator or producer, comment below!

I have a question about the "Fanfiction" folder, do entries have to be a "fanfiction", or could it also be original stories?

I was just asking cause by what I read in terms of description and title, it seemed to be restricted to fanfics and I just wanted to make sure.
