The community spoke and here is our answer.
We will be pushing the official Chaos year from 851 to 856 with an addition to the Timeline. Since the Incursion there has not been a staff run event to focus a new update on, but there have been significant player generated events that have caused ripples across the face of the galaxy. We agree that there is no one better able to explain and do justice to these events than the people who participated in them. Any board events are fair game- the bigger it was, the more people it involved, the larger the ripples in the community at large, the more likely it will be chosen for inclusion in the timeline.
Every six months, if there have been no staff organized events, the Timeline will be updated to reflect the member generated content that has occurred in that time, and the Chaos timeline will be moved forward.
There are two categories:
Write Up - The short entry itself, explaining the event, what happened, and who was involved. These should be short and punchy- they are not meant to be comprehensive but an overview. These will be judged on things like: Clarity. Balanced Reporting/Lack of Bias. Accuracy.
Art - Submissions should be square pieces without a border (as that would be applied to the finished product). These should represent a snap shot of the event it is intended for. There is no hard size limit, as they can be resized to fit, but keep in mind the end images will be on the smaller side and some detail may be lost if they are submitted too large. These will be judged on things like: Clarity. Relevance. Visual Appeal.
Members may submit things to one category, both categories together, or may collaborate with each other to submit an entry that contains both. There is no limit to the number of entries you can make. Multiple people may submit entries for the same event. Staff will judge and compile, and admins will have final editorial rights. From the chosen entries, a new timeline will be created and posted.
Submit to this thread using the following:
Category: Write Up/Art
Submitters: Optional, if there is more than one person who worked on this.
Event Name: ex. Endgame, The Invasion of X
Relevant Links: If this event spread over many threads, link the primary thread. Additional are optional.
Entry: The write up and/or art itself.
We sincerely look forward to your submissions and creating the next step in the Chaos Timeline with you all!
