I thought it might be nice if we had a competition of sorts. It has been several years since the Deviant Group has had one. Although, the problem with having one would be that we don't have anything to offer as a prize to those who participate. It would help if a few people could volunteer free art commissions or subscriptions to the winner(s). The contest could be nearly anything from a morph contest to a contest about the different weaponry and spacecraft from the series. This contest is about you guys, remember that. I want this contest to be held by what you guys want it to be about. Post your ideas below in the comments and I'll see about holding a vote on the best ones.
The new models for the rerelease of the books have been revealed and it's causing something of a stir within the Animorphs community. In the books, Marco is explicitly described as being half-Hispanic, with darker skin and hair. The model chosen however, is white. Nezumi9 asked us to pass on the message and to tell our members about a petition to change it. Her original message is below.

"As you probably know, the new cover models for the re-release have just been posted www.scholastic.com/animorphs/c… and we on the LJ Animorphs community think that the Marco model doesn't fit his character's description at all. I've created a petition to change it www.ipetitions.com/petition/ma… and I was wondering if you could post a blog entry about it? Any signatures are really appreciated and I'd love your help. ^_^"
The scheduled chat event has begun! So far it's just me and kryptocow, so come on down!

I am going to suggest a time.

You tell me if it works for you.

EDIT: The time has been moved forward by one hour. Hopefully, it still works for all the people that said it would work. And hopefully, it works better for everyone else.

So the time is:

Saturday, January 29, 2010
1:00 PM PST
2:00 PM MST
3:00 PM CST
4:00 PM EST
10:00 PM in Berlin

It's a week away, so we can fiddle with it.

And I'm still open to all suggestions for event themes.
Also, I'd love more information on the schedules of all interested people. :)

And in case you forgot what I'm talking about here, I'm trying to arrange a chat event for Animorphs fans.
The chat room can be found here: chat.deviantart.com/chat/TheJa…
The original journal entry on the subject: animorphs.deviantart.com/blog/…
This is something that other groups have done, with great success. I thought it might be a nice idea for getting Animorphs fans together.
Basically, I would create a chat room and we would plan events that any interested members and watchers could attend. Is this something that we might be interested in doing? I figure it shouldn't be too difficult to find a time that works for most people, since we don't have a huge number of members. Unless that's me just being hopelessly optimistic. ;) If you are interested in this idea, please comment. Also, I'm welcome to any ideas for events. I've already thought of organized rp and fan-fiction writing, line by line. I'm open to all ideas. :D

EDIT: The chat room has been made. Find it here: chat.deviantart.com/chat/TheJa… Now to plan an event. :D

EDIT 2: If everyone that's interested could please give some times that they're usually available, I'll see about getting a time set up that works for as many people possible.
