It’s tragic that we have to do this but after weeks of absolutely nothing from the Tumblr staff on this issue we are officially moving the challenge blog to the holding blog we have had going.
That means that all 30MinChallenge activities will be returning to one central Tumblr blog, yes. No more challenges or challenge related posts at asksolarflair or asainponyartchallenge.
This move does come with changes however. Tumblr is no longer our centralized base of operations.
We will still use Tumblr as a method of art submission and possibly as a gallery but we have learned that it can not be trusted as a primary source, as I’m sure you can all understand.
Questions, Challenges, and so on, will now primarily be handled at http://30minchallenge-group.deviantart.com/
If you for some reason have something against Deviant Art then we are sorry. Hopefully our tumblr will still keep you up to date with notices of challenges taking place and so on.
NSFW art is still accepted as it has been but it will be going straight to Derpibooru if it’s too provacative for DA and both NSFW and anonymous art should be submitted here to this tumblr.
The Rules and FAQ pages have some light updates for you to peruse should you wish.
Hopefully this will only mean good things for us! It sucks to have to restart but in a way we are branching out and may attract new artists. Also we shouldn’t have to deal with nasty crippling security breaches like the one that bit us on the butt.
As a bonus http://30minchallenge.deviantart.com/ page has a chat box and poll system we will be using! Feel free to chat at your heart’s desire and look forward to polls!
We are also uploading our backlog of art from years on Tumblr to DA and Derpibooru right now. Sadly this has to be done picture by picture and will take quite some time… but it’ll be nicely organized and tagged in the end! Consider it an opportunity to really check out a bunch of art you may not have ever looked at before as we plod along at uploading it all.
New beginnings! New opportunities! Huzzah!
Join us in rebuilding even bigger and better!
