:pointr::pointr::pointr: :new:The Ball has now ended. The winners will be announced soon! :) :new: :pointl::pointl::pointl:



:bulletred::bulletgreen::bulletred::iconsomeconfettiplz: THE LINKERS GRAND BALL :iconsomeconfettiplz::bulletred::bulletgreen::bulletred:



dALinkSystem is feeling very festive and wishes to show our appreciation to all of you in the Linkers Community. We cordially invite you to participate in our annual Linkers Grand Ball. Every member of dALinkSystem  is welcome, and encouraged, to participate. This isn't a contest. It's not a matter of Linking the most or the best. You just have to Link.
There are fabulous prizes available just for participating! :iconsparklyla-plz:

We're a little late getting our Ball underway this year, so it will be extended so that all of you who wish to participate will have an opportunity to do so. Also, there is a minor change to the rules of participation. Please pay close attention to those rules so your participation will be assured :thumbsup:  

The Linkers Grand Ball starts the second you've finished reading this blog and will end at the stroke of midnight (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time, January 8,th, 2013. The winners will be announced soon after. What time is that where you are? Click this link to find out: GMT Time Converter


How to participate:

:bulletgreen::bulletred::bulletgreen: The first thing you must do is comment on this journal. Tell a joke. Be random. Say anything you want. Draw something in Muro. The point is, I want you to talk to me so I can talk to you :D

:bulletgreen::bulletred::bulletgreen: Secondly, Link 2 (TWO) newly submitted deviations. Deviations submitted after November 1st , 2012 are considered newly submitted and will be accepted. Linking will be verified. Your deviations must be Linked in order to participate. If you don't know how to Link, or need help Linking, please ask and our team will happily assist you :)

:bulletgreen::bulletred::bulletgreen: And finally, send a note to dALinkSystem  with "The Linkers Grand Ball" in the subject line. Include the thumbcodes of your 2 newly Linked deviations. Please do not submit your entries in a comment on this blog.


Other Important stuff:

:bulletred::bulletgreen::bulletred: There will be three winners chosen from all participants. You do not have to submit to a particular category this year.

:bulletred::bulletgreen::bulletred: Winners will be chosen entirely at random. Each participant will be assigned a number. dALinkSystem will then use a random number generator Random.org to determine the prize winners.

Hey, it doesn't get simpler than that does it? So let's get this party started! :party: We hope all of you will participate. :eager:


Prizes for EACH winner: (currently)

  3 month Premium Membership (or equivalent points) for each winner from Echostar08
20 points for each of the three winners from feigenfrucht
One a4 print (Subject to availability and not a dA print. Choose from her gallery) to each winner from moyan



Journal features:

dALinkSystem
Echostar08

Nameda  


If anyone is interested in donating a prize, please note us ASAP. We would be very grateful for any other prizes as well. We'll update this blog as more prizes are added.

Stupid question:
So there are two of our works? Not two works by other people that we link to one of our own? ^^;
Reply
:iconechostar08:
Echostar08 Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013
Not a stupid question. I'm happy to clear this up for you :)

Two of your own works. Each of your works Linked in your artist's comment box to one (or more) works from other deviants. Does that help? :)

if others who have subs would react more often I probably would have links to all my newer devs but many don't care to even answer my request.
And its a pleasure

OMG I keep forgetting to link things this year. x.x Gah I feel bad now...

Also wish I could donate this year but I don't have the time to do the same prizes from last year, and there's not much else I have time to do either. (Pretty sure it was this place I donated prizes to last year? Dunno. All I remember is I had one person never claim their prize and now I forget who it was..... x.x)

You must remember to Link! :D

Yes, you did donate prizes last year and they were much appreciated. No worries that you can't donate this year though. I'm just happy you're participating in the Ball :)

You're not the only one who's been absent. Lots of people have, including me :( I'm trying to rectify that though.

Another Grand Ball! :dummy: Seems that I finally have to upload something new then (instead of just planning to do so ^^). It's nice to see the group get more active again. Oh, and I will feature the winners in a journal.

I think that would be better, don't you? I mean, since it's not a contest with place winners I think it would be best. Thanks again, Erdtrud :huggle:
