    Aksel here, just chiming in.

    I'm willing to stand behind a team challenge, be it CHOW, IOW or something else entirely.

    About the IOW badges, I'm rather puzzled, as they show up perfectly fine for me. So we'll have to get the higher ups to take a look.

    PxelSlayer, incentive is all well and good if the higher ups were more present. I've given out workshops and downloads before in the Teen Challenges, but I paid for them all myself. But I'll end up rather poor if I'm going to do it very often.

    Agreed.
    I guess this is the time when we build an altar, bring in a couple of oxes and virgins and light up that sucka.

    Also, kudos to you for going the extra mile and providing those videos on your own. Respect

    P.S. Irrelevant to all this, I won an IOW but have no badge. Would wear it with pride. ^_^

    I am definitely down for another go at the Team Chow

    This sounds exciting.

    Incentives are cool but I honestly think just the idea of working with other people is a motivator in itself. The crossover of IOW with any of the other weekly activities sound pretty good actually. It can be sort of like one of the requirements, like, for CHOW/COWxIOW provide proper turnarounds plus an illustration putting everything in context. People often like to do that anyway, but almost always (in CHOW, for instance), one suffers for the sake of the other (i.e., more effort is put into the final illustration and character sheets get rushed or vice versa). I think this might be something that can benefit from having some sort of division of labor among teamates. Well, and since the idea is already out there, why not make it into a weekly (bi-weeky?) team challenge where there can be reshuffling of themes (i.e., crossover combinations) and members even? Pros of member reshuffling: working with different people, and only people who can commit to the current challenge will be in the round. Cons: probably no long term team building/dynamics and no real defending champions or something like that. Although ok, actually I'm not really sure because I wasn't around when team chow was running, but were there permanent teams back then? (Because if there weren't then feel free to ignore what I said just now haha -__-;; )

    The challenge would have to last about a month just because a lot of team members would have thier real jobs to take care of. Also it would take at least a couple of days to form a team. Realistically it would probably be a tight deadline at a month if you figure forming a team, establishing workflow, concepting, finalizing ideas and producing the finished illustrations. Before with team CHOW I believe that the number of team members effected the number of characters that had to be designed.
    Also, it would just be like another weekly if it happened all the time.

    I'm calling dibs on the team name 'Chroma Control'

    Different teams were organized for each round (though you could keep your old team if you wanted).

    The problem with weekly team challenges is simply that making something as a team on the internet takes a lot longer due to conflicting schedules and waiting for communication.

    Really?

    All I get is this -

    No IOW badges showing up at all...weird.

    Oh well, irrelevant, what counts is - can we get a team chow or iow or a weird love child of those two? Clearly, if the public has spoken up, the time is right...

    Well I guess at least you're getting recognition from some mystery boarders out there...

    I think we just need to get the attention of an admin that can make things happen. Not sure who that would be, I don't see too many active admins these days. Maybe Arshes?

    Pxel, you're not crazy. I can't see your badge either. Super weird how it shows up for some people and not others. O.o

    The badge shows up for me but as a broken image icon.


    I'm curious how a team IOW would work in terms of splitting the work up between several people. Maybe the objective could be to do a series of images, like a few different cards for a trading card expansion.

    I, too, see the badges. I'm curious, what browsers do you use? Any ad-blockers or similar software? OS? etc etc

    dierat, that is actually a great idea. A themed expansion pack style of things would be awesome.

    I'm on Chrome with no extensions and I see a broken image on both my desktop (PC) and laptop (Mac).

    I'm on Firefox, OSX Lion, with AdBlock Plus installed and they show up fine.

    Cards are a cool idea, but we did tarot cards for team chow II, so that could be considered a little repetitive.

    True true... Monthly then? Or is that too long? Shall we give it a try? Theoretically I (or anyone else for that matter) could already start at least a team signup thread. Or... would that be impolite without mod approval?

    And Pxel, I don't see the badge at all as well. On Firefox.

    Can't see the badges and I'm on Firefox with adblock. But I doubt it's related.
