We're announcing a change to the TNL! Speed Modeling challenge, moving it to an optional event. If you want to take part in speed modeling in any particular week, you can either sign up on the night or email me in advance at Jenny@caligari.com and let me know you want to participate. On those weeks where we get two people wanting to take part, then we'll host the challenge! On the weeks where there are too many other events and no-one is able to take part, then we simply won't host a speed modeling challenge.


So it's up to you, our community, as to how often these challenges take place! Subjects will now be decided on the night, by those present, so it should be a lot of fun. :)


Thanks, Jenny

I would hate to see these challenges fade away. I will always be willing to participate and I know a few others are too (prodigy). I really look forward to this segment. C'mon people, participate.

No plans for these to fade out :) The main thing is to step away from press-ganging people into taking part each and every meeting, and instead let you the community members decide when one happens and when it doesn't. When folks feel in the mood for a bit of a speed model challenge, then it will happen, and it will still give the TNL! League points too of course.


On weeks when folks are too busy, too tired, not feeling creative enough, and so on, then we can simply not have one that meeting.


For exceptional meetings, like our Thanksgiving Special Thursday Night Live! in two weeks (Nov 15th), we'll still be having the challenges! That one on the 15th is to model a lego Pilgrim and lego Native American (Indian - though in some parts of the world that might mean "someone from India" hence the other wording for clarity!). You only have to model one of those if you take part, not both :)


We are still looking for registrations to take part in that one, so do sign up - the Thanksgiving meeting should be a good one (with this speed modeling, the first ever Clinic, and the announcement of the trueSpace Mentor results)!

Anyway, we hope these changes to the Speed Modeling will simply make it more fun and more in line with what the community wants.


Thanks!

Tom

hm... perhaps the first person to step up can request to challenge another member there then?

I think we can say that is up to the community! The idea is that it should be folks who want to take part, rather than Caligari waving the whip and insisting two people take part each week ;)


If everyone is good with being challenged then that's fine, we leave that all up to the potential participants :) However the community wants to run it is fine (while Caligari staff do take part in speed modeling sometimes, we still want it to be the users that decide how best to run it).


All ideas and discussion are welcome though - its your contest :)


Thanks!

Tom

We want our TNL! event to go as smoothly as we can, and it's always best to email in advance to tell us that you wish to take part in SMC for the next TNL! event. We will also ask for participants in the beginning of the TNL! event. But we do not want users to feel pressured to having to do this every time.


It's important to have a fun time! :)
