This is where we will link to all the splendid community building threads, discussion threads for each forum, and rules for weekly/monthly comps/collabs! (Instead of sticky every single one of them)

Voting threads are where you vote for your favorite entry!
Discussion, like in signup threads, goes on only in the GD Chat, and not in the voting thread, although you can definitely say why you voted for whom!
On the corner of Jett Avenue and Twizzler Lane, there's a small nook of a cafe. You've walked by it several times, but not once felt like going in, until today...
You walk in and are greeted with a strangely strong scent of peppermint, with warm air lofting over your entire body, biting away the cool air that the harsh outdoors left on you. You're warmed up immediately and once you're able to look around, you see people, many people; most of them hutched over with a pencil in their hand sketching something on paper. You walk in, and right off the bat you're welcomed into a group of eccentric young artists with eager artistic discussion to be shared.
Welcome to the Writers' Pad, a magical place populated by elves, fairies, gulumphs, and kikykikykikykikies. Here, the writers of ZU can hang out and discuss the mighty art and their mighty works. Don't be shy! You won't be plintzed!
This thread can be used for:
Discussing writing with friends
Talking about books, authors, poems, etc., that inspire you
Talking about the writing process; giving updates on what you're currently writing
Requests for help on a piece of writing
Sharing drabbles or short works you don't think need a thread
So, yeah! Get on board the discussion train starship! Start chatting!
Now that the monthly art contests are gone, I was thinking about something we could do in place of it. Something we had a brief conversation about a long while back was a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly themed art activity. We could pick a theme or artist or art style or other start point to use as a seed for making a periodic group art show. So... poetry, music, drawings, all the things we already post in the Creativity Corner.
The magic and charm of ZU lies within its main characters; namely yOU guys :> and one of the most fun things to behold are different drawings that ZU'ers have done of one another; and this is the place to share them.
It doesn't matter if they're humorous, silly, epic - if it is of a fellow ZU'er, feel free to post it =D!
How does it work?
* Write down what you do every hour awake on the set dates.
* Draw every hour another day.
* Post it in this thread.
* READ EACH OTHERS COMICS AND APPLAUD.
* Happily wait for the next date with excitement.
-Creator of the Moment- an ever-expanding exhibition
Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the Creator of the Moment. Here, we will compile a list of the various artists found here in the Creativity Corner. From painters, to musicians, to poets, to graphic designers, all shall be featured. Each month, a person will be named Creator of the Moment and be highlighted in this thread. We will cycle through each of the forums so that each (Artwork, Writing, and Graphics Design) gets fair representation. In essence, this is an expansion of the Artist of the Moment than Vynrah ran, as well as the Designer of the Moment that Caleb ran.
Have we missed out on posting your community event? Do you have an idea for one and want to know what we think? Do you have an idea for an amendment to the rules of a contest? Do you have anything else artsy or creative or anything the like that you'd like to talk about with us?
Feel free to message your modly mods Buu, EzloSpirit, Strawberry, Caleb, or Holden!
