    While I would love to go around and seek out housing and all and I did adore the articles written by former stratics reporter Wren Sharpbeak.... (who did some of the most awesome posts ever) for Better Homes of Britannia... I first off wouldn't have time.

    Secondly my CS2 is not compatible with windows 7 and I'm without my tools for picture posting....

    And finally.... I'm not able to be a pom pom waver... sorry. I am critical... Sometimes criticism is necessary and in the case of deco... sometimes it's desired.

    I am curious about what the Architects and Decorators of the community would like to see from a Homes and Castles Reporter.

    My ideas would be:

    Outstanding designs and/or Decor
    How to Guides
    Interviews with designers

    What else would you like to see?

    How about set up events of feature shard tours of homes?


    Say this month we feature Baja! And folk on Baja who are interested in "showcasing" their homes could contact you and then a date would be set and runes placed into a book or whatever and say at 8pm on Saturday we take a tour of Homes on Baja! And we all meet at say NewHaven and go for a tour.

    I don't know about others but I for one LOVE seeing other peoples designs. And I'd rather go visit it in person where I can walk about look close zoom in and out and all around get a good look at a fine house.

    But I think it might be fun to do things that way. You could advertise with their EM's. Advertise by leaving books all around Luna and some major gate locations to contact you regarding entering the show and then set up a tour on that shard for a set time.


    Just an idea. I know it would be a whole lot of work but I think it would be fun.


    *edit* And one more thing... if their shard is any good they would make it a huge gala event. As an RPer and someone who does many events on GL's I for one would work with someone to put on a huge tour of homes. I'd have local "celebrities" ..... Like Lady Lava participate.... add some games maybe some trivia to the event and maybe even encourage some of the hosts to have food and drinks served during the tour. Make it a shard wide event that is fun.

    Another thing you might think to do is showcase some "famous" houses on each shard.

    Every shard has famous houses.... Like MoA auction house on GL's...

    Lady Lava's house.

    Things of this nature.

    I like this idea. I don't have many characters built up on a lot of shards yet, but I was thinking of doing the shard idea with screen shots on here.
    But if people are interested and would be able to help with the gating I'd love to do your idea fully.

    And people that have favorite houses on any shards, feel free to message me about them. I'd love to try to work up to doing a monthly spotlight..
    Maybe we can start a post where everyone can post their favorite decorators and then once a month there can be a short interview and some screen shots of their favorite work.

    *added*
    Since Tazar told you his ideas, I figure'd I'd share a few of mine.
    Obviously I already posted I'll be doing Halloween, This will probably be multiple posts spotlighting different shards.
    I also will be trying to do some posts based off themes.. i.e. farmhouses and ponds/rivers.
    As well as different museum and library designs. [Both rune libraries and normal libraries]

    Not only do I know some of the best designers and decorators on GL's but I know where they live. *grins*...

    And I'm more than willing to help you at least here on GL's.
