This is brought to you by one of your many group benefactors and a friend of the group who gave 350 :points: for our funding, Mr.. :iconborjen-art:! Thanks, mate!

Hello again! I know I couldn't leave you for a whole week without a journal, which was my original plan, but now that I'm discussing ideas with you guys I feel I should tell them immediately, so here goes.

As the title said, I have two more ideas for the community to consider, two that should hit the closest to home for you folks: gifts and YouTube stuff!

So, as we all know, YouTube is pretty much the go-to place to sample video games through another person, a good technique. However, many of you who have tried know that it's difficult to maintain a successful YouTube channel, especially for newer ones. My idea would be much similar to our advertising projects for our benefactors and game developers (once we get Super), but perhaps with a slight tweak.

My idea would be that the channel enter a partnership (if accepted) with DA-Gamers , each one advertising the other. As for DA-Gamer's part, if we can re-achieve our Super Group status, we would add in a few ranks (including Benefactor), among which would be Sponsored YouTubers. This isn't a big amount of advertising, but could lead to some hopeful avenues. We don't expect much in return, I just really want to help you, the community, get yourself started because... frankly, I've tried and while I failed to muster the sums, I know it would be a huge disappointment if you just spent 200$ on recording equipment just to fail.

So, that's only one idea I had. The other? Well, I was thinking of a hobbyist-only art contest with a reward of 400 :points: (5$). This would be more focused on bringing the community together rather than seeing professional-grade art. For this event I would like to invite a few professional artists to judge it as a group event. If they are too busy, I would understand because frankly, I guess it doesn't matter to many people.

I just want to thank all of you (even if it only goes to one person) for the support we've gotten for our Super fund, and I'd like to tell you that the group's owner (WAIT XERU I THOUGHT YOU RAN THIS GROUP!? I do, but more like a CEO rather than owner) has said that we will be getting the Super back and hopefully soon and she will receive all the points amassed in our fundraising projects.

This event mentioned above would act like a kiriban in celebration of our 200,000th pageview. Not a lot for many of the more noteworthy members of dA society, but for a group this is a huge amount and we'd like to celebrate, even if it is like a dorm student that happened to buy the nice noodles instead of ramen (my little joke).

Anyways, thoughts? I know a couple of you (including Requiem) have taken a particular interest in the recent journals, so... feel free to express endless amounts of rage at me for spamming you recently or any other ideas you have for the group! I'd love to hear them, be it through noting the group, commenting here, or noting myself.

Cheers and have a spectacular day!

I really like both ideas; especially the hobbyist contest one, since that's more relevant to me personally. ;)
Also, I totally don't mind the weekly-wish journals coming into my inbox as I definitely get a kick out of your humour/writing style. xD

Well at least someone likes how I write (even if it's just some backwards monstrosity of a journal).

I'm guessing you're a hobbyist artist? Wonderful! Our past contests have either failed due to underfunding or imported comps, so... oh well. I hope this one works though, coz some of you folks could use the attention ^_^

Yeah, guess I'm kinda a hobbyist. At least, I don't get paid to do this. :P I'm just not very good at what I do, lol. I hope this contest succeeds too, even if I don't end up entering. ^^

Well, based on the brief look I had at your page it was much better than most, so don't tear yourself up, yeah? You'd laugh at my attempts...

I appreciate it, but I just can't see past the flaws. :P Not quite good enough yet, hehe.
