Entering the judging phase of the Papercuts award, I am reminded of something that I think it's good to share with the Misdirected Mark audience. It's a post about the 2014 ENies, called "Another's Accolades Aren't Your Competition"

http://ryanmacklin.com/2014/07/anothers-accolades-arent-your-competition/

One of the best things I've read about how participating (and supporting those participating) in a contest can lead to some destructive behaviors.

Excerpt:

...
Appreciation isn't a finite resource. When someone else’s work and effort is applauded, that doesn’t take away from your own accomplishments. If someone else wins an award or gains high praise, that does not diminish you.
...


He makes these three requests:

...
Creators, I ask you to respect your own accomplishments by being proud of them. Cherish the accolades you do get, and don’t resent those that you perceive you aren’t getting.

Friends of creators, I ask you to support the above by being purely positive. Don’t tear down another’s accomplishments in order to boost your friend’s spirits.

Fans, I ask you to spend some time today, and when you think about it, to thank those creators who have brought joy into your lives. Especially when you think that they don’t hear that enough and deserved some recognition that you think they didn’t get. Do so without tearing down others, and you make it easier for creators to appreciate the moment with you.
...

I know I couldn't agree more - but what do you think?
The ENnie Awards for 2014 are up today! Plenty of buzz about it on Twitter, nominees celebrating each other and fans celebrating us. But there's another side to this, where people feel slighted for...

Progress in my quest to carry a castle in a binder!

After upgrading my popup steps to 2.5" (and modding the texture from http://www.rpgnow.com/product/150142, by Lord Zse Zse Works) I was able to build 100% fold flat playable walls and access staircases!

I was interested in fold-flat boxy walls and posted a design, other designers responded, and I kept pushing the limits until we came up with a strong, tight design - and then I pushed it further to design a NO GLUE fold-flat paper wall design. Did I go too far? {Hint: Probably.} Anyway, the details are here: http://cardboard-warriors.proboards.com/post/69698/thread

I figured out an easier way to make paper staircases (a single piece), and have them be usable by minis, and fold flat!

And I'm giving the template away to the public domain forever!

Time to vote and/or check out the amazing papercraft entries this year. A record number (and a record number of first-time contributors!)

http://cardboard-warriors.proboards.com/board/156/papercuts-2015

It'll be tough to choose a winner, but the first 4 categories all required the designers upload their figs/models/tiles for FREE download!

How can you not check out the free stuff?

Many themes covered - Scifi, Anime, Classic Fantasy, Antique, Airships (and tiles), Modern Vehicles... Check it out yourself.

Someone named "Vera" (what is she, a goblin?) came to my house saying that "Phil and Chris" ordered a McGuffin and that I knew how to make them.

So.. Here ya go! (Details on how you can make your own will be posted after I get some sleep...)

This is a graph of recent messages flowing through Twitter with the #DND. It's interesting (and my staircase desogn URL made the top-10 for cluster 4 )
