August 2016

Post by Lethe »

Hi, everyone! The end of summer has brought a lot of activity with it, and the forums certainly seem very lively these days. :heart: Let's see what we've got!

Mentor Program - If you're a new or returning member and don't know where or how to set a foot into the community, perhaps you'd feel more comfortable with a mentor at your side! :heart:

Shrine Spotlight
The winner of August's Monthly Spotlight is Counterbalance, a shrine to Jessie & James from Pokémon! Congratulations, Robin!

Events and Marathons
The Dynamic Duos Challenge has concluded earlier on this month, and you can see the results here. Make sure to drop by the event subforum to check out all the lovely shrines - there's a lot of diversity there!

The Construction Zone Challenge is still on and won't end anytime soon - hop in and get started on those shrines!

Aaaand we've started a new activity - Shrine Revamp 2016! You have up to the end of October to polish some of your older shrines so that you can show them off (again)! :D Decide for yourself how much refining you want to do, sign up, share and motivate! There are other ways to get involved, and we encourage members to help each other with their revamps as needed. :music:

So many new shrines!! And hopefully many more to come. :music:
