Dragyn wrote:@ Cat - Well I'm not sure how to explain it to you. No. I'm pretty sure Radiuhoh has a pretty easy list to work off. No one said it was a matter of skill. It was more a matter of experience. 'This person asked for all historical, but this person hasn't ever done a historical doll in their life. If they get frustrated they might give up and not finish'. It doesn't matter if the person pardon me, 'sucks', if I saw they've attempted a historical doll in the past, I know they can handle the list. There were very few 'changes' made to the randomness. But I had to check it anyway. Now, that you hopefully understand it, do you see a problem with the way I've done the sorting?
I understand why you feel the need to do it, I just question the methods.

Just because someone is not familiar with historical dress does not mean that they will not be able to make a doll of it. For instance I got my person and my first thought was to make them a steampunk doll that correlated to one of their requests (cuz I know they like steampunk and fantasy stuff), I don't know much about steampunk but a 5 min search on google can fix that.

For the most part people know going in that there is a chance that they will not get a person or topics that they like, that is the risk that they take, and hopefully those people who are dedicated will make a doll no matter what. I don't think that it is fair to assume that one person will become frustrated with a topic, especially since I doubt that you asked them, opposed to another. If you look back at other exchanges, and especially pageants, just because someone has more experince does not make them more likely to finish a doll (even if it is more challenging).

I HAVE A QUESTION THANKS

Since I'm doing many dolls, do I have to save them in one file at the end when I'm done and sendin' to the elf, or can I send in different files?

I think it'd be cute if you had 'gift wrapped' them. All together maybe with a sticker and some text. << Just me.

But it's up to you unless Marly disagrees

When we give them to you. :|

No, seriously, we're not 100% sure. No later than the 31st, but it's hard to say based on the fact we have 13 dolls to make for no-show entrants so their giftee's aren't giped. If you submitted a doll you WILL be given a gift made specially for you, whether by your original gifter or by a staff artisan/seasonal artisan. If you did not submit a gift for someone else, and yours was not made, we are not making you one.

Optimal unrealistic goal is the 26th, but don't expect them until the 31st. Yes it's 'christmas' inspired but it IS the Winter exchange so if we miss Christmas by a week, oh well.

Can we post our dolls on DA if we have already submitted them/ give them to the people ahead of time? I know we did that for the re-doll exchange, but I don't know if you want us to wait this time.

You can post them on dA, however, don't contact them. If they come across it that's allright but if not, it's more of a surprise! :)

TG- Your person actually didn't submit a doll for their giftee, so if you want to scrap it it's up to you. You can still finish it and submit it to them personally if you'd like, but we're not working on a make-up gift for them. If you finish before the gifts are released, PM an admin and see if it's still possible to get it added if you really want to.

As a whole, if a make up gift is being made for your person, you may not still submit at this point. All of the make up gifts have been started on or finished already by our wonderful staff and seasonals.

Also, if you did not submit a gift, and your giftee did not, and you still want to submit your gift late for your giftee (since we're not making them one) you will not receive a gift either, if yours wasn't submitted either.

To check if your giftee submitted theirs and if you can still submit a doll, please PM me and I will let you know.

Again, if a make up gift was being made, you may NOT submit still. Personally, I wouldn't waste my effort finishing a doll for someone who didn't make a gift for someone else. But it's up to you really.
