The Summer 2020 Games have ended, but the fun continues over in the Fall 2020 thread. We switched up team names, so be sure to pick your new team before posting!

One last thing. I would like to give a special thank you to @Smeddley for giving us such great prompts to craft for, and the bingo cards to add extra flair to the summer challenges. I really appreciate all that you do!

Another round of special thanks to @bluebird. She will be running a fun advent calendar event during the fall season, so be sure to check out the third comment of the thread for updates every Sunday of the coming season.

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me! Craft on, Nerds! :nerd_face:

I am so sorry I completely dropped out of existence this round, it was bound to happen one of these times!

Reminder, if you completed a bingo card PM me your address and your favorite crafting medium…

Fall prompts are sloppily up, I’ll tidy them later when I get to my computer but I know how people like to get started/planning!

Question re: the increase in Free Ranges:
Now that it’s 2 per month, do we have to use them or lose them each month, or do they carry over (so we could use all 6 in December, or 1 this month + 3 next month etc.)?

I think it’s use them or lose them.

We did make them month specific when we did the year long round on Craftster. But I think we should just have six free range a season. Everyone else agree? Disagree? If we all agree, I’ll change the rules

ETA: this season we have 12 extra bonus prompts with the advent event, so it might feel a little overwhelming. But in future rounds, I think it would be great to have six extra slots for those times that you’ve crafted something and just can’t make it fit into a prompt, or if you’ve been especially crafty in a season and have more to post.

I like that idea.

I like the idea, too! Sometimes, I have projects later that don’t fit any prompts, and I hate to “waste” them :slight_smile:

Yes, I like the idea of 6 extra slots because sometimes I either run out of prompts, or an item just doesn’t fit any prompt I have left to do.

Sounds great to me. Thanks for clarifying!
