MORE WAYS TO HELP TWWM GROW

We would like to see TWWM continue to grow as a collaboration between all of its members and hope that these opportunities to volunteer will be a fun opportunity for those of you who are interested in taking a more active role in the group. This is unrelated to the staff roles and is simply a way to donate your time, help others in the community, and contribute to the growth of TWWM.


Volunteering will not be a separate role in the group
We have decided that the best way to give collaborative opportunities to as many interested players as possible is to do regular volunteer projects rather than create a new group role. Our recent poll indicated that over 100 group members were interested in taking on a volunteer role and this is would be a very difficult number of people for us to coordinate on an ongoing basis. I do not wish to put a limit on the number of players able to make contributions or make it a restricted position in the group. Your generosity means a lot to me, I want this to be a fun and inclusive opportunity and not limit it to a small number of people.

Volunteer projects will be posted regularly
When there is a project available we will update this journal and send a notification out. Different projects may have different requirements. For example: if we are seeking a writing donation for a certain project we will prioritize the use of volunteers that have already been submitting writing to the group. There may also be other stipulations to be determined on a case-by-case basis.



Sprout 2 Types of projects

Volunteer projects fall into 6 basic categories:

ACTIVE PROJECTS



Sprout 2 by garden-corvidaeArt donation: Front Page Banners Sprout by garden-corvidae

We are currently looking for future front page banner artists that can create our top header and our monthly prompt banners. Each month two artists will be picked and contacted by one of our Curators with the theme and details of the month. If you have been a front page artist before, please don't hesitate to apply again!

Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! Requirements: Artists should show willingess to draw scenes with detailed backgrounds and be able to finish a scenic piece in 2-4 weeks. Artists that specialize in crafts should show a good eye for nature photography.

Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! Additional notes: We accept all kinds of visual media, be it digital art, traditional art or photos of crafted esk in front of a nature background. The piece must always be created for the upcoming monthly theme and cannot be one of your previous artworks. All our artists are always featured on the bottom left side of the front page. Works created for the front page can be scored even if they do not show esk (please contact staff for scoring assistance), they can however not show any other made up species.



Signing up to volunteer:
 To apply as a front page banner artist, please reply to the featured comment below with 3 works from your gallery, that show artworks with scenic backgrounds that you have created, or photos of crafts in front of natural backgrounds you've taken. The works do not need to feature esk. We will reach out through notes and assist our volunteers privately!


Please reply here if you are interested in volunteering as a front page banner artist!

These threads will remain open until we feel that we have a good amount of volunteers, we cannot give an estimate of how long this will take and there is no set deadline. It is possible that not all volunteers are chosen to be a front page banner artist and that some artists will be contacted without having applied here.

We are currently looking for future Greenhouse banner artists that can create the banners for our upcoming Greenhouses. There is currently no set list of which NPCs or Greenhouse stories will need banners, so you should be comfortable drawing a variety of different backgrounds. If you have been a Greenhouse banner artist before, please don't hesitate to apply again!

Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! Requirements: Artists should show willingess to draw small scenes of backgrounds without characters in them and be able to finish a piece in 2-3 weeks. 

Dot Bullet (Lime Green) - F2U! Additional notes: The artworks should be drawn digitally or traditionally. The piece must always be created for the Greenhouse story in question and shouldn't be made of one of your previous pieces. All our artists are always in the respective Greenhouse journal.

Notes: My preferences are more open landscapes like mountains, deserts, beaches, etc. I’m not the best at forests

I’m willing to give it a try. Note I need at least a few weeks notice in advance for any volunteer opportunities as my life is chaotic and unpredictable
