Quick Things You Might Want to know

1. This is not in order of when the events will take place.

2. They will certainly come with more detail when each one comes out.

3. Events will overlap, time-wise, and this should be fine!

4. Members may participate in as many events as they would like to.
In many cases, Admins. will be allowed to participate, and there may be a couple of events where watchers/supporters/friends, can also participate!


:note: Please keep it in mind, that it is possible, that not every single activity listed above, will actually end up occurring. Most will, and the bigger ones, hopefully will. It is also possible that a couple of the activities may change.
While this has been in the thought-process for a couple of months, the placing of it in writing as of now, is its first time- and it's all very preliminary, however, it is CERTAINLY time to get celebrating!

What YOU Can Do Starting NOW to HELP!

CALLING ALL: Fellow-Administrators, Members, Affiliates, Watchers, Friends & Supporters of Unframed-Nature...

1. The number ONE thing you can do to HELP with this BIG EVENT, RIGHT NOW is through PROMOTION!
:eager: :eager: :eager:

"HOW??" You Might Ask!

HAPPY TO HELP YOU, HELP US! :D

As there are several ways...

A. Put this whole thing, (journal), as a personal Profile Page Journal! :la:
(If you don't have that kind of ACCESS, you could copy/paste OR SEND GROUP a Note, and we will send you the PASTE, so that YOU could PASTE it.)

B. Or AT LEAST, place the thumbcode of this journal, into a personal Profile Page Journal of your own, and simply write a couple lines about it!
:iconlawooplz:

C. Place the thumbcode, in a Custom Box in a Visible Location on your Profile Page! :w00t:

D. REQUEST this Journal to your GROUP, if you are an AFFILIATE, or ANY OTHER GROUP, Willing to HELP OUT!!! :iconcatlaplz:

E. REQUEST this Journal to your GROUP, if your are an AFFILIATE, or ANY OTHER GROUP, Willing to HELP OUT, and...
maybe, perhaps, even do a bit extra by making it visible, or saying something special about it, in a Custom Box, or Journal?
:flirty:

F. It would be great of ANYONE, who thinks this TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION, is, even remotely a good idea, to at least :+fav: this Journal. :D :nod:

G. You could also create some POLL on your Page, but somehow with the LINK to this Journal, as a great way to promote it! :dance:



2. Okay... you knew this was coming...but the other thing truly that you can do to HELP with this BIG EVENT, starting NOW, is through the DONATION of POINTS, :points: .

Yes, points, points, POINTS! ;)

Well, this IS a BIG EVENT, yes, and we DO plan to hopefully have LOTS of prizes and HOPEFULLY, a VARIETY of PRIZES- that would be really, really cool, to have a variety of prizes-

I've been here long enough...  heh, heh, well not quite the decade, but long enough to remember the days when we gave out a lot of different types of prizes- and while sometimes, I am starting to see that a bit more again, I do wish we could move further in that direction.

I'm NOT saying, away from POINTS! ;) But... at least toward trying to be creative in what else we can GIVE and APPRECIATE, as Prizes!


But, for now, it would be great to get started with some points :points: to build up for some of these individual events, activities, and contests! A couple of the events will definitely be BIGGER and we'll be hoping to give out MORE than some of the smaller activities.

:flirty: Thank you so truly much! :flirty:


I may be asking for some help from certain individuals, as we get closer to certain contests and other events...

But as of NOW, I just want to say,

Thank you SO MUCH, in ADVANCE to EVERYONE, who CELEBRATES with us!! Thank you to those who do ANYTHING to be of Support & Help to this HUGE EVENT, of ONE DECADE LONG OF THIS GROUP BEING ACTIVE, and DEFINITELY MUCH THANKS in ADVANCE goes to EVERYONE who participates....

Hello Laura dear! :w00t:
I'm just... speechless (which is rare) to even see you- this means I'm excited beyond words, to have you aboard our team here at Unframed-Nature !
I just want to say, you are coming in, in the middle of a very different time, when things are... not running quiet "normally"... (what is normal- rhetorical question really... ;) ) anyhoo, but yeah, right in the middle of things running a bit differently. There should be no submissions in your submission box to even work on, as I've closed them through the 11th/12th.

We usually close them every other month from the 1st-8th. But anyway, this may give you more of a chance to look around and read up on that back area. There is a lot of good info. back there, even if it may seem overwhelming at first. Just please, no pressure- cause at the same time, we ARE a very easy going laid back group. And we will help you if you have any Q's. Leave group note, or even note to me, though I am behind. But do feel free to really dig around in the Back Area, don't be shy! :lol:

Take things at your own pace, and later we'll talk about if you want a mentor. Several have or have had them, it's perfectly fine if you do. In fact, if they are here regularly enough, it's a pretty good idea. For now, just ask those who are here the most.

My email should be posted back there and all over my profile page. IT IS OPEN TO YOU. That is often a better way to reach me directly, and you MAY do so. :D :D :D

Last but NEVER LEAST, HAVE FUN! :boogie: :w00t: :boing: :squee: :dance:

And THANK YOU for your CONGRATS! :heart: :rose: x12
and great idea, promoting with a POLL, and wow, FB, too! Awesome! :glomp:

Hello Tea!:wave:
I'm truly happy to be around!:la: I've a lot to learn and I hope I won't make any mistake:blush:

I've seen there are no submissions (apart my suggestion to a fav because I fell in love with a photography ;) ), and I'll definitely take advantage of this time to read and study some. Thank you so much for inviting me to send you a note! I definitely will if I have some question in mind. Kelly also invited me to do so if I need help, I've received such a lovely welcome!:love:

I will!:la: And thank you for your congratulations:blush:
Oh, it's the least I can do! I shall do so with the next activities as well. It would be nice if I got some people to check and join the group! :la:

Belieeeeeve me, we all make mistakes, I still do, all the time! :D
 Just ask anyone on the team...
you don't really have to, ;) but if you did, they would tell you! :nod:

So don't worry IF that happens, k? ;)

Just cause you joined this group, you didn't become a superhero, (I know you are disappointed and hoping that this is what happened when you joined this group as an Admin. :lol:

anyway... even then, THEY make mistakes! :giggle:

(okay so your reply I saw here, put me in a good mood! :) )

YAY on Kelly! bergunty is such a sweetheart and big help around here- honestly don't know what I'd do without her! :heart:
Hugz to you both.
