    Good day, sheeplings! It's your favourite guest host: me. Jacky's a bit busy in February, so I'm here to provide you with some quality content in the form of another PAW contest! You know how it goes, there's TROPHY POINTS™ up for grabs for the top 3 in each category!

    Now I know January's PAW is still going on, but I figured I'd get this out nice and early so you have a little more time to procrastinate.

    P is for Photography:
    Something you can do by yourself -
    Incidentally, February also has a Singles Awareness Day. So let's take pictures of some hobbies we have that you only need one person for. Yo-yos, knitting, jogging, if you can find a nice moment to capture on something along those lines, you might be a winner!

    A is for Art:
    National Bubble Gum Day -
    Draw some art to commemorate the joy of bubble gum. You know, popping, chewing, whatever you like, so long as it features our favourite chewy goodness. Ah, my favourite food that I don't actually eat.

    W is for Writing:
    Confession -
    And let's not forget Valentine's, eh? Write a romantic confession. You can incorporate this into a story if you want (or a poem) but just the confession itself is enough. Might make more of an impact with some build up, yes. Either way, get sappy and release your inner romantic this February!

    And those are your topics for the month of February, I'm waiting for your submissions~

    Now then, the way you send me your entries is via PM. That's PM for Private Message, but if can get a Prime Minister to do it, I'll be impressed.

    Title your PM as: "PAW February 2020".

    Include entries for all the contests you wish to participate in. One entry per category. You can take part in all of them or only one, or two of your favorites if you so choose.

    For images, please use a website to upload them. I recommend imgur, but you can also use photobucket or whatever you kids use these days.

    You have until the 27th of February, and we'll start the voting the next day, finishing up with declaring winners 2nd of March!

    Thanks again for hosting this for me! I love the topics you picked.

    Just one question: Last month @Max Rockatansky (I think it was him) would have liked a poem topic so I was wondering if a poem confession is fine too? I think that's a really romantic way to confess.

    So long as it’s your first time winning that particular prize. Unless they’ve fixed that quirk/added more trophies.
    Guess I’ll either be working on my theory or branching out for the art category because this topic sounds super fun and I have ideas already though the medium is limited.


    Ohh a poem would be nifty. ^_^

    I'm doing it out of request. As for how many there are, I'm just running one myself.

    Looking forward to it, Hotaro!

    Yeah, that works. I'll allow it and add it to main post.

    I have one duplicate trophy myself, at least.

    Fair enough and thanks for doing so! ^_^

    Likewise. ^_^


    Nifty! Thanks! Like everything else, these should be new works, right?

    That’s for a different event. I’m just going on what I was told about the points/trophies for PAW by an admin back in September. I specifically asked about them. Maybe we can get clarification on this matter then? @sweetjacky do you remember the conversation? If there’s been an update maybe there’ll be more incentive for trophy point hungry repeat people to join. If not, then clarification would be good so they don’t whine when they win and get no points. ^_^

    Yes, as always.
    Huh, that makes no sense. @Marco Polo @sweetjacky if the users are supposed to raise their rank through contests, of course they would need a trophy for each PAW win to make any progress. I recommend you adjust your stance on this, at least in the light of the current ranking system with more ranks than the previous one.

    It wasn’t a stance so much as an ability thing. They were working on it. I just was wondering if an update had been made to their ability to award more than one of the exact same. But it would just be a matter of naming it like yours are, right? Numbered for each time they win a particular level of a category? That would create a bunch of additional, unique trophies technically but such is life. There are multiple repeat winners. *shrug* It could increase participation/activity, which is the idea. I dunno. I’m just brainstorming here ^_^

    If my understanding is correct, does this mean that even if you won, let’s say first in Photography for 2 months, you only get 1 trophy? Because I checked and I only got trophy points for my September win. And I won in October as well.

    Exactly that. Unless they’ve changed something which is what I’m trying to confirm. I’m entering no matter what lol.
    So I can finally check my trophies to confirm that despite multiple wins of various places in a few categories (thanks to the graciousness of the voters), my PAW trophies look like this with no duplicates: CD28FFB0-EF24-4207-AE17-4E499FF60922.jpeg

    Re:Trophy Points
    My plan is to make trophies for winning the contest a certain number of times. Unfortunately I haven't gotten around doing it yet because it's probably gonna take some time as I have to go through all the old contests. I might need some more time before I make the trophies but don't worry, it's still worth participating in PAW because the trophies will definitely come and in the end the contest isn't only about trophy points but also about the fun and creativity it comes with.

    I’m going to challenge myself and write a poem. Also, the photography topic is kinda hard. I need to think this through. Hmm.

    No need to overthink it. Or do you just have so many good ideas it's hard to decide on one?

    Okay I have a question about the writing part, how long should it be? Or rather what is to long? I want to know that before I can even think of start writing :)

    I say if you’re writing, go for it. I’ve never seen a limit. It’s about the quality and the more submissions, the better but it’s not my call. ^_^
