Britt (Daestwen) is no longer around, but for something like this to happen it just needs organising. I'm sure if there were 'willing souls', they could try approaching the current Chow mods for advice or involvement...
I definitely would love to do another Team Chow! If any extra help is needed in getting it together I'm happy to offer.

I've never understood the team stuff, is it ongoing, or?
I'd like to be involved, only I'm not sure I could be relied on to produce something of a consistent good standard. I certainly couldn't compete with some of the stuff in that thread.
I've been periodically ghosting this forum since almost the beggining... way before I ever felt I had time to get involved.
Team chow was very popular and was partially responsible for making the reputations of some of the heavy hitters here. It was ran like a regular chow but with more characters required, a longer deadline, and groups of likeminded artists forming teams. I think they planned of doing more but never got around to it. Eventually the main driving forces were too busy having careers and it kinda got forgotten.
I personally think this would be good to get started again, it would help reinvigorate the site challenges (which are but a shadow of what they once were) and it would expose some of the new blood to greater popularity.
I'd love this to happen. I'm also willing to help organize this kind of thing, if need be. That said, it's up to the ChOW people, whether or not they want it going on, as well as what the topic would be.
Clark and I have wanted to see if we could get a Team Creature of the Week event going. I'd love to know whether there is any interest in that happening, if any.
