Bearville Rainy Days’ 3rd Anniversary Contests!

Haven’t been on BRD in a while? Or maybe you haven’t had the chance to join at all? Well, now’s the perfect opportunity to come (back) to BRD!

In honor of its third anniversary, Bearville Rainy Days is holding three massive contests for rare ACNL items, Bells, villagers, custom rank titles, and more! YOU could be one of the seven total lucky prizewinners – and you’ve got a great chance of winning if you get started early! So what are you waiting for? Get recruiting, posting, and writing starting today!

For those unfamiliar with Bearville Rainy Days, we’re a completely drama-free place to talk about games like Bearville, Fantage, Line Play, ACNL, and whatever other things might catch our members’ interests in the future! And if you don’t want to talk about gaming all the time, that’s fine, too! We also have lots of anime and kpop fans. Basically, if you’re following this blog, you’d probably love the content on BRD!

We’ve also always had a casual, laid-back, friendly atmosphere. Our community is close-knit, but we welcome new members with open arms, and we’d definitely love to have you on our forum!

You can become a member of BRD here.

Note: Our recruiting contest runs from January 1 to March 1, 2017. Our posting and writing contests both end on January 31, 2017.

Another Quick Q&A Post for BRD Users…

Katie and I are both guessing you’re wondering some more things right now, so I’m going to answer your inevitable questions!

Some of the questions from this post apply here, too.

Question 1: Why is BRD randomly redirecting me to the Forumotion homepage?
Answer: Because Forumotion is stupid. Again.

Question 2: OMG!!! DID FORUMOTION CLOSE BRD?!?!?!?!?!
Answer: No, other forums are having the same problem. We’ve tried going to a bunch of Forumotion forums and they all redirected us to the homepage. Considering some of these weren’t ever BV-related forums, the problem is also not that Forumotion decided to close every forum that ever talked about BV.

Question 3: When will Forumotion stop doing this?
Answer: We don’t know.

Question 4: Have you considered moving your forum to [insert other forum host here]?
Answer: Well, we’re used to Forumotion, it works pretty well most of the time, and it’d be a huge hassle moving EVERYTHING on BRD to another host. So no, we’re probably not going to switch to [insert other forum host here].

Question 5: You’re aware that BRD fixes itself as soon as you post these things, right?
Answer: Yes, we are. Shh… Don’t jinx it…

We hope this post answered all your BRD-related questions! 😀 Once again, if you have any other questions, please feel free to leave a comment below!

A Quick Q&A Post for BRD Users…

Hey! I realize you guys are probably all wondering a few things, so let me answer your questions right now!

Question 1: Why can’t I get on BRD?
Answer: Because Forumotion (our host, for those who don’t know) is doing something stupid right now.

Question 2: Why is Forumotion stupid?
Answer: Because it is.

Question 3: Am I the only one who can’t get on BRD?
Answer: No, nobody has been able to get on for most of today.

Question 4: What’s Forumotion doing?
Answer: Either they’re updating something or doing maintenance. They’ve done this before. It hasn’t gotten any less annoying over the years.

Question 5: Did the admins know about this beforehand?
Answer: No, we’re just as confused as you are.

Question 6: When will BRD work?
Answer: We don’t know, but probably (well, hopefully…) by the end of the day.

I hope this post answered all your questions! If you have any more questions about BRD, feel free to leave a comment below! 😀

Anyone interested in an art trade?

So commissioning things has made me really want to do art. 😛

If anyone wants to do an art trade with me, now’s your chance! Some things to keep in mind, though, since I’m not the world’s best artist/have to draw with a trackpad:

  • I can be pretty slow. Please don’t rush me, or else you won’t get as good of a drawing.
  • I only draw people. If you want me to do something else, it’s going to turn out terribly, just FYI.
  • I don’t generally draw hats/hair accessories, but I can try. I can also try detailed stuff, but I might end up simplifying anything too minute.
  • I’m not the best at drawing specific poses, so your character or Fantagian or whoever is probably not going to be doing anything crazy. I also can’t really draw people sitting down, sorry!
  • When I’m done the lineart, I will show you how it looks in the comments. If you have any concerns, let me know then and I’ll edit your drawing. I would like you to do the same for me.

For an example of my art style, you can see my Fantagian in my banner (full picture here for reference):

HI ANNA

Yes, I know I goofed with the hair at the bottom, but that’s not really going to be an issue unless you ask me to draw Rapunzel or something…

So if you want to do an art trade with me, comment below with your references! (If you’re wondering why I haven’t listed mine, that’s because it kind of depends on who responds to this post. :P) It’s better to ask now rather than later, though, because I’ll probably only do this with one or two people, plus I’ll be going out in a while.

Thanks for reading! 🙂

Sisterhood of the World Blogging Award AGAIN

Anna tagged me, so I have to do this again. Rules are in the last post. 😛

1. Is Seth your lord and saviour?
I’d need to get to know him a little better first.

2. Do you ship Jared and I together? Be honest, I’m waiting for that one person who doubts our relationship.
Yep! 😉

3. What are your opinions on yanderes and yangires?
I know you mean yandere males, but you’ve made me want to watch Mirai Nikki. Well, you and the theme songs for it.

4. Can I ask you a question?
Sure! But, uh, isn’t that what you’re doing right now? 😛

5. What’s the point of wearing popular fantage items and having a high level?
It’s just like how rare items were on BV. If you wear popular items on Fantage, stupid people will like you for no real reason. Also, it proves you are a copycat.

6. If you have stalked us to the full extent, what is the biggest lie Jared and I said about our relationship? What do you notice that doesn’t make sense that we have said about ourselves? (There are actually two, and if you find them great job! I’m not going to tell you if you’re right or wrong though.)
Hmm… Something about your guys’ location, or how long you’ve known each other. I don’t know, I haven’t really thought about it.

7. Have you used Christian mingle? 😉
No, because I’m not Christian, nor am I over 18.

8. What would you do if suddenly God came down from the sky and said, “I am God.”?
Honestly, I have no idea.

9. What would you do with a billion gold?
Hmm… I’d buy the stuff on my wishlist, probably. (I need to make a page for that…) Then I’d give some Gold to all my friends and save the rest for later.

10. I’ve always wondered, why is Cloud82 so popular?
Right now, I’m guessing it’s because she’s selling off all her stuff for money.

BRD Updates

Hey, so if you guys were wondering what’s happening to Bearville Rainy Days, here’s a quick post to catch you up to date! 🙂

Our posting contest ended on October 1st! For those not in the know, a posting contest is where people compete to post as many times on the forum as possible. We even have a topic where people can spam and double post to their heart’s content! (Well, you do have to count, but yeah.)

Our recruiting contest is still ongoing – you could win $10 worth of Gold for FREE or Bubblegum at minimum price! There are still other prizes you could win, too, such as Angel Wings or a Cute Polar Bear Hat. Really, what’s not to like? This contest ends on November 28th, so you’ve got plenty of time to catch up with the current leaders!

We also have a surprise contest coming up sometime this month, so be sure to look out for that! 😉

But what can you do when we’re not holding a contest? Well, our anime and KPOP forums, despite having been added just recently, have gotten a lot of attention so far! I know a lot of people on FTWP like talking about these things, and guess what? A lot of BRDers do, too, so you’ll get to make lots of new friends who share your interests! 🙂

What are you waiting for? Join BRD today by clicking here! Feel free to say I recruited you if you want, but you don’t have to. It’s all up to you!

A Small Rant

Okay, so I know I’m Canadian and stuff, but there’re a few things that have REALLY been bugging me today. This isn’t entirely about Fantage, but I’m posting it here because some people need to see it. If you’re sick of posts about what day it is, don’t read this one.

Also, I didn’t get a very good night’s sleep last night, so I might sound a little incoherent and/or bitchy. Sorry about that.

Blog Ratings

I’ve seen other people do this, so I figured I might as well give it a try. 😛 Just comment your blog’s URL here and I’ll visit. I’ll probably offer a different perspective from other raters because I’m more used to BVWP, which was generally quieter and focused a lot more on BV than FTWP seems to do with FT.

Note: I’m going to try to be completely honest here. If I say I dislike your blog, it’s not meant as an attack on you. All the criticism I offer will be constructive, and if you don’t like my advice, you don’t have to take it or even agree with it. Just don’t get mad at me if I don’t like something about your blog. Again, I’m used to BVWP, which was very different from FTWP.

What I will be rating:
Appearance: Your blog’s theme, background, header, etc.
Posts: The quality of your posts and whether or not they have to do with Fantage (or whatever your blog’s topic is).
Pages and Widgets: The overall quality of your pages and widgets. No, quantity is not quality in my eyes.
Originality: How well your blog stands out from other Fantage blogs in my eyes. Will I remember your blog, or will it blend in with all of the other blogs I’ve seen?
Overall Score: Pretty self-explanatory. What I thought of your blog as a whole.

All scores are out of 10. I’ll also provide comments alongside the scores explaining what I liked or disliked. Please don’t rush me, because I’d like to be thorough with my ratings. 🙂

Thanks for reading!
