Because then for people at one extreme the contest will run from Friday Midnight to Saturday Midnight, whereas for others it will run from Saturday Midnight to Sunday Midnight. So everyone gets to do their film during the weekend.
Awesome idea, Stefan! 😀 I’m for that all the way.

Well, from early morning to late noon and then since I’m apart of the Youth’s Worship Band, I have practice ruffly from 2 to 4. So, you see it’d be pushing it if I try to get any animating done on Sunday.

Since you’re doing multiple days, perhaps instead of defining definite 24 hour periods you allow people to define their own. You pick a week and during that week someone can PM you (or your European or Australian associate) to get the theme info. Once they get that info back, their 24 hours starts.
Even more clever would be to set up an auto-responding e-mail address. When someone is ready to start the contest, they send an e-mail to a specified e-mail address that automatically responds with all of the necessary contest info. That way they can start exactly when they want to and you can check the time on their incoming e-mail to know right when their 24 hours should be over.July 26, 2005 at 4:00 pm #120441
I’d thought about letting everyon choose their own date, but I figured that it would be too hard for me to message everyone right when they wanted. Instead I’d planned on Running the contest on all 3 of those days, then having anyone who can’t make in on any PM or Email me so that I can set them up on a seperate day. An auto responding email adress- I never even thought of that! I’ll look into making one, that would be an excellent Idea.July 27, 2005 at 7:59 am #120586

Grumpy spoilsport that I am… the whole point of knowing you are animating with a number of people around the world at the same time in this comp is being lost. Plus, I don’t trust the theme won’t slip out. People say all kinds of irresponsible and badly thought out things in chat all the time. I know this sounds negative of me, but an unintentional slip up for a second could ruin the basic premise of this comp.
