Chatterbox: Chirp at Cricket

CB anniversary sign

CB anniversary sign ups! The CB's anniversary is sometime in June (What was the date of the first post admins?) and I remember the first post that really caught my eye before I even posted was a backpages CB anniversary video. It was lovely and the CB really is such a beautiful place. I would love to make a video dedicated to this community. If you wish to join fill out the form below! I will need people to provide art, editing skills, quick videos for editing together, quotes and things like that.


Skills/what you wanna do:


I think we decided upon June 18, but I'm not sure.

@admins Thanks! @NiteSkiies Wow your camp starts early! Do you think you could play a piece for us and upload it? The cover art would be great! We'll start this on May 14.

I May be able to record it, but I just realized that my house is NEVER quiet and I don’t really have a good recording setup. I’ll find out what I can do and get back to you. Admins, any updates yet?

...I'm assuming the Admins have gotten together to agree to post a video again for this? Because otherwise it wouldn't work. Anyway, sounds cool!

Name: Azalea

Skills/what you wanna do: Art! I can also play guitar and ukulele?

Ideas: Well...we could do animation for part of it, maybe? But I've never done that before... 

Actually, we have not agreed to post it. I'm just querying our Webmaster, Admins, and Editors now to see if we're able to do it again. Stay tuned. . . .

Here is a link to the 10th-anniversary video:

Name: Peregrine

Skills: I can do quotes and I would love to write the script.  I like doing hand lettering so if there is any need for that I would also love to do that.

Ideas: In the beginning I think having a sort of fairy-tale gate that opens slowly as the words "welcome to the Chatterbox" appears would play into the fantasical world of the CB.  Then the camera would move through the gate as more words appeared, "a place where anything may happen". Or something along those lines.

Also, you can't uplode music or videos to the Chatterbox.  The 10th aniversary video was an exception in which the web master got involved to allow it.  The Admins just don't have time to review videos as they explained elsewhere (correct me if I am wrong please, Admin).  I don't know how we are going to get the music recordings and video sections to you so you can compile them.

Oh sorry everyone! This might not work out but we could still make like a collection of art for the anniversary.

Skills/what you want to do: I can find some quotes from around the CB! Also I can draw some pictures!

Ideas: QUOTES. Like how in the old video there were some quotes that captured the CB into a little... I don't know. Just, they sortta... were the CB in a nutshell. And, ART. THE CB HAS SO MUCH ART THERE NEEDS ART.

So, we should have like a couple of sections-

We should first have a sort of gate-style thing open into mist, and the words, welcome to the chatterbox.. should appear, then they fade and the words ...a realm of mystery and chaos appear! 

then, it fades out and all that's left is mist, until it fades out into a map! 

we should dive down to This Month first- y'know, go in order. the MCU planners, as well as some old, abandoned Ella's-MCU threads should be there. THEEEEN WE DO QUOTES RELATED TO THIS MONTH AND SUCH!

then chirp at cricket, put some si buildings and whatnot there, and some other cbers. THEN QUOTES RELATED TO CAC

etc, etc, etc. 

hope you like it!

Name: The Sage Wolf

Skills/what you wanna do: I could do a piece of art that's like a "CB personified" thing or edit! I could also make a list of what makes the CB special.

Ideas: If the video doesn't work, we can make a thread with everything on it!

I'm attaching a GIF I made to see if that might work. @admins, feel free to delete it if you can't reveiw it. It's just an animation of a droplet of water falling.

As long as you say you made the gif, that's it's not copied from another website, then OK to post. I think it will work. Here it goes . . .
