Operation Thank You Poop! - CLOSED

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 3, 2012, 9:03 PM



Contest is closed! Thank you for all the wonderful participation! :eager:

If you forgot, you can still send your note to inknalcohol as long as you've already flung poop at the targets.

Give us a couple days to sort out the results and expect a post on Tuesday at the latest.

Community Volunteers put in loads of time and effort to support the literature community on deviantART. They promote happenings, host contests and events, and search tirelessly for Daily Deviations to feature. That's just to name a few and there are plenty of other job requirements they fulfill!

They're also volunteers. As in they're not paid for all their excellent work! Not even a dime.

Operation TYP is all about repaying those efforts! We want you to show all your appreciation by leaving a lovely thank you message for our Community Volunteers! But you cannot simply say, 'Thank you!' It's not devious enough! You must give them a proper thanks by flinging poop at them, too. It's not just any poop. :no: It's Thank You Poop!

Why poop? We've recently manufactured heard a rumor that literature monkeys fling poop as a way to show admiration for a fellow deviant. It seemed like a nice and fun way to express your appreciation. We challenge you to be like a literature monkey and fling poop for the day!

Your task is to visit a Literature Community Volunteer's page and leave them a sincere thank you message for all their hard work. Don't forget to fling poop at them!

To make your poop flinging task easier we commissioned the lovely mirz333 (Mirz123) to create an appropriate plz emote! The plz account is not required, but who can pass it up?
:iconthrowpoopplz:
(To use the plz account type :iconthrowpoopplz: in the comment box.)


You may visit the following targets on this poop flinging thank you rampage!



Target #1: :iconbeccajs:

BeccaJS is often found posting relevant threads in the Literature forum, and recently wrapped Critique Week for projecteducate. She’s currently Racing for Life.

Warning: The Tiger may or may not eat you. We suggest fleeing after flinging your poop.


Target #2: :iconhalatia:

Halatia is our latest CV to end her term with well over a year of hard work for us. As she was a CV when preparation for this event took place a few weeks ago we knew she deserved to be included. You can find her working hard at Anthropology-of-Self!

Warning: The Raptor is most likely to eat you. Throw poop at your own risk.


Target #3: :iconikazon:

ikazon is often found allegedly flinging poop promoting community activities and hosting critique nights in the CRLiterature chatroom.

Warning: The Monkey is crafty. Don't be surprised if he has a trap waiting for you.


Once you've tired yourself out from all the poop throwing thank you's (and washed your hands), send inknalcohol a note with links to your escapades. For each target you fling Thank You Poop at we will enter your name into a drawing for prizes. If you throw poop at all 3 CV's we will enter your name 3 times. Note: Spamming the same CV with poop 10 times will be hilarious, but will only count as one entry, sorry!


Eligibility Requirements and Rules


Read these requirements carefully. They are not suggestions. They are required!

:bulletblue: Note inknalcohol with links to all your poop flinging adventures.

:bulletblue: Include a kind thank you message!

:bulletblue: Fling poop in the message!

:bulletblue: Limit 3 entries.

:bulletblue: Deadline: Feb. 4th, 2012 @ 11:59 PM EST.

Note sure about the deadline time? I use this Timezone Converter.

.

:bulletyellow: Not sure how to link to a comment?
When looking at your posted comment, you will see a timestamp next to your username. It may say something like 'moments ago' or '2 minutes ago.' That's a link.

Right click the link, and select 'Copy Link Location.'

Then paste the link in the note and we will be able to pull up your comment.


Prizes!


Participation Prizes
We're all about the participation prizes! :dance: Deviants who qualify will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of the following:

:bulletgreen: 5 winners will receive 200 points!
:bulletgreen: 4 winners will receive 100 points!
:bulletgreen: 10 winners will receive 50 points!
:bulletgreen: 5 winners will receive 20 points!



Creativity Prizes
We're part of an art community, and we'd like to see you flex those creative muscles! Make them laugh, write a poem, impress them with your muro skills if you can! Be creative and have fun with it because each Literature Community Volunteer will be asked to pick one deviant to win a special prize:

:bulletgreen: A Trollface Knapsack!*

Trollface Knapsack by deviantWEAR

*We're giving out three total, one per community volunteer. If a community volunteer declines to pick, inknalcohol and thorns will select one.


Your 24 hours has already started! Hurry, hurry!




We can't wait to see all the entries!

Done! :) I sent the comments to the 2 CVs and 1 past CV and then I sent the links to =fenris242! I hope that's enough. It actually took me a long time, because all of them were poems, though only 2 rhymed throughout the thing!

It was hard but fun! :D

You both are so amazing for being able to keep up with things like this, and to make dA such a fun community for everyone. You're honestly one of my dA Idols and I hope to be able to help out as much as you have. ;w; :heart:
Once I become old enough, I'm going to become a CV too like those awesome people and help out as much as you guys and the CVs! (or try at least)

You all are awesome for events like this. :meow:

I'm sorry to say you have not shocked me with this contest announcement... and I'm not sure if that realization should shock me, or just sadden me. :D

And since you of all people deserve some thanks also, I should very much like to dedicate this poem to you:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
I fling poop first,
And run faster than you.

Haha! Not even a little 'wtf were they thinking when they cooked up that plan?' :giggle:

The question isn't whether you can run faster, but can you run longer? :iconrunsiesplz: <- It runs 24/7. Can you? :eyes:

:iconthrowpoopplz: You're an awesome CV and always helpful even when I ask silly questions. You deserve all the thanks you get so THANK YOU! :glomp:

We debated including other CV's in this, but weren't sure how it'd be received. We were fairly sure (but not 100%) lit volunteers would take it well, and didn't want to risk annoying anyone, especially if we hadn't really talked to them before. Maybe we can put together something (a little less risky) for volunteers in general. :eyes:
