Paper Playful was established to help both Paper Crafting Challenge Organizers and their Challenge Participants. Our purpose is to maintain an orderly format so that players can easily see what challenges are currently offered. It is also designed so that Challenge Organizers can announce their winners.
Two dedicated individuals are regularly allotted to each day of the week.
For example: on Mondays, the same person always does the list of Monday Challenges, and another person always does the list of Monday Winners. The assigned day was determined when the Challenge Organizer has completed the questionnaire and submitted their Challenge to be added to the Paper Playful listings. Challenges which applied to Paper Playful as being published on Mondays will find their challenges and/or winners published on the requested day.
Many Challenges are posted on specific dates, rather than days. Coordinators follow-up on those Challenges a weekly as well. These are known as Other Day Challenges and Winners.
While we would love to include all on-line crafting challenges, there simply is not enough time or man-power to do that. At this time, only challenges which include Paper Crafting will be listed.
Paper Playful Coordinators give up several hours of their days/weeks to perform this act of charity to the on-line community, but occasionally something comes up, resulting in late postings.
Do you have a regular Challenge which would benefit from being added to Paper Playful? We will gladly advertise your Challenge and Winners at no charge. Just click on the Questionnaire Tab at the top of the blog, copy-and-paste the questionnaire into the body of an e-mail and fill it out, and e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attention Challenge Blog Owners: A few suggestions to make our job a little easier:
It takes a lot of time to visit each blog and search through the posts for the Challenge Subject Matter, the dates of the challenge, and especially, to find Challenge Winners.
After visiting the first 5 or 6 challenge blogs, the coordinator can get a little bleary-eyed because each blog has their own way of doing things. We love when Challenge Coordinators:
- use easy-to-read fonts
- use a different color font for winners
- change the size of font for relevant information
- use the tabs on top that say "Current Challenge"
- use the tabs on top that say "Current Challenge Winners"
- or place the information prominently on the blog so our Volunteers can easily find the information
All of Us at Paper Playful.
