We hope you’ve all settled in to Xenforo and are enjoying your stay! It’s been a long time trudging through the red tape, but we’re finally free from Tapatalk’s evil reign! And with the new forum comes an exciting new event from your very own Feature Team! May we introduce:

THE NUZLOCKE SHOWCASE SPECTACULAR

During our discussion regarding the Extravaganza, many have expressed interest in a non-competitive event. While we think retaining the Extravaganza as a competition is for the best, we believe there is a need for another event to highlight runs without a contest. Thus, the Showcase Spectacular! A collection of runs to celebrate the creative minds and hard work of you lovely people. This event is designed to put a spotlight on all runs, with a special focus on the new and up-and-coming, as well as other sorts of content on the forums.

“But how will we determine which runs participate in the event?” you might be asking. Well. We need you, that’s right, you! To submit your runs to us! It doesn’t have to be a traditional Nuzlocke, either! Got an OA? Something in Creative Content? An event run? It’s eligible! (Limit of one run per member.)

All of them will be thrown into a spreadsheet, and a random number generator will pick 10 runs per medium by chance. Those lucky members will be given the choice between these options for their showcase slot:
  • A short interview (3-4 questions)
  • A fanwork created for you by a fellow forum member
  • A shout-out to another run that you love
  • A shiny new banner for your signature with a brief run synopsis
  • A creation of your own that you feel best shows off your run!

Those who are not picked for the full showcase treatment—never fear! Every run that is submitted will receive a featurette-sized blurb written about it. Everyone gets a little something!

To participate in the Spectacular, please fill out the form below. Submissions begin on August 1st! You have until August 31st, 11:59 GMT to submit your run.

Submission Form!

Schedule for the Spectacular will be as follows:
  • August 1st - 31st: Run submissions
  • September 1st - 30th: Run selection and preparation
  • October 1st: The Nuzlocke Showcase Spectacular is live!

We hope many of you will participate. We're really excited to roll this out. Enjoy your new Spectacular, Nuzlocke Forum!

I said yes to being willing to create a fanwork, but I'd like to note I'm a video guy... I've got limited talents. I hope, if I get chosen to create a fanwork for someone, that I get some say in what that is? I don't think anyone wants me to draw them a comic. :sweatdrop:

@Couples-Consoling Hey there! Sorry for the delay.

However the fanworks will be assigned, members will not be expected to go outside of their current abilities for the Spectacular. Play to your own strengths. :)

Does the run need to be on this forum currently? I don't think my run's been ported yet. (It's also still in disarray since I can't fix the links...)

Hello! As much as possible, we would like the run to be on Xenforo currently and functional for it to qualify for the showcase.

Thank you!

Hello, everyone!

With the deadline for submissions past us, I'm happy to say that we have already chosen the runs for the Showcase!

All run authors have already been messaged over the forums and we are awaiting their reply for the showcase. If you're reading this and have received a message from me, hopefully we can expect an answer from you soon!

To those that submitted a run and were not chosen, fret not! We will still have a little something for you for your participation.

See you in a month!

Hello, everyone!

I know the first post mentioned that the Spectacular thread will go up on October 1st, but unfortunately, we did run into some complications on our end.

We have worked it out though and to that end, the Spectacular thread will be going up on October 25, Friday.

Thank you for your patience and thank you for those who have already contributed to the Showcase so far.

Be seeing you soon!
