    Talking Another Fabulous Collage-a-thon, Feb 13-15

    Mark your calendars for another fabulous collage-a-thon over Valentines weekend, February 13 - 15, 2009.

    It's open to everyone, and is open themed.

    Start time (in your time zone - when your clock says 5:00 pm Start) February 13 at 5:00 pm
    End time (in your time zone) February 15, 2009 - 11:59 pm

    We'll open the official thread a few days before the CAT, with details on how to post your pictures to the thread, etc.

    We hope to see you there!

    sweetest-sin, can you please be more specific? Personally I think that a little bit of chatter is fun... and too much chatter gets distracting in an a-thon. I love lots of posts with awesome art, and don't like having to go through pages of stuff to find the art. But that's just me. Is that anywhere close to what you mean? Or am I just rambling again.

    Yeah I like a little chatter (helps to keep the thread up top too) but I try to keep it down and post with pics when I do chatter.

    A Flikr gallery in the first post, with a link to this thread? That way you can still chat but see all the cool cards in a gallery. Just a thought.
    What?

    Or maybe we could get a gallery post in the "Swap Gallery" area? I'd be happy to coordinate that if you don't want to HHC.

    If each of you would tell me what your favorite card is that you create during CAT I will incorporate that into a Swap Gallery sheet. And then, maybe we can also nominate our favorite card from another person from the weekend. I'd send that to our wonderful admin and they could post for posterity..

    If we did a Flickr gallery we could post every CAT to that same spot in the future. I admin several groups over there and could help get that set up, too!

    Well, if all you cool people are playing I may just pop my head in and see what's going on. Frankly I LOVE the chatter and am a big chatter offender. It's not worth CATing without it. I look in people's gallery's to see their cards.

    (The Queen of Chatter speaks: ) I agree with Kati, the chatter is part of what makes the CATs fun for me. In the CATs I've been part of, I trade more cards the more enthusiasm there is, regardless of the # of cards I've made. People seem to want to be where the action is.

    I can see how chatter can get a little annoying for someone who isn't down with that kind of thing. Still, I've noticed when there are HOURS between posts the # of participants really starts to drop off, and stays that way. Maybe we can find a happy medium in here somewhere?

    I think getting through the intense chatter is most distracting for those who only have a couple of hours to play and want to do some trades... well I am speaking for myself. I've only had limited time the past few and was focused on the art posted.

    Some folks only post their cards to the thread... (I check galleries too) so you still need to sort through the posts.

    A special gallery for easy viewing for those of us with limited time could be good... although posting in the thread is what it's all about. And with some newer folks, figuring out two places to post could be a bit much...

    We're not going to make everyone completely happy, but we should be able to make it workable for all.

    Thanks for all the input!

    Hmmmm...I *may* have to collect a couple more supplies and join y'all this time around. (I am not entire certain that I am a very successful collage person though. Possibly I should work on it LOL)

    I love chatting, but like it even better when I can see all the available trades in one area. What if we do a post at the beginning of the thread with our availables, and keep editing that post with all our pics, instead of it spread out throughout the thread? We can make comments, but at least all the pics will be right there on the beginning pages.

    I like that Flickr idea-r. I've been cutting out clip art all evening ... I am preparing! hmmm ... I think I feel the flu starting ... it should hit me about February 13th at 4pm ... just in time to get home from work and stay in all weekend! I guess I can be well enough on the 14th to make dinner for my valentine ...
