August - December 2011
12/3/11: Edit: Although the opening credits for Legend of Korra were leaked online earlier today, there's word going around that show co-creator Mike DiMartino has requested that the video/link not be reposted. Though I can't seem to find anyone linking to the actual comment, with the effort they've put into making this show, I can't imagine that this is how they would want it to premiere. So I'm removing the link out of respect; sorry guys.
11/21/11: The results for the Pumpkin Contest are up; congratulations to Jade (@_@), Daniel, Dave, Philip, Emma, and Mod's Choice winner Angie! Thank you to everyone who entered and voted, the contest will be back next October and I hope you will be too. :)
11/16/11: Do you like the internet? Do you live in America? Have you heard about the Stop Online Piracy Act bill, or SOPA? If not, it is really something that you need to read about, as it may affect many of the websites you visit, potentially even this one. There is a round-up of info and links about it here on the DH Forum.
(Also, voting for the Pumpkin Contest ends this Sunday. Results on Monday!)
11/7/11: Voting for the Avatar Pumpkin Carving Contest has begun! We have fourteen lovely entries, and prizes that include a Korra amigurumi doll and a White Lotus beret! Voting will stay open for two weeks and everyone can vote for their five favorite pumpkins, so I hope you will help vote and spread the word. Thank you! Results will be announced on Monday November 21st.
10/29/11: Entries for the Avatar Pumpkin Contest are starting to roll in, and photos of the Korra amigurumi doll prize are up! Still looking for more contest prizes if anyone would like to provide one, and of course looking forward to more pumpkin entries! Good luck with your carvings, and hope you all have a happy halloween!
10/1/11: Happy October, and time again for this year's DH Avatar Pumpkin Carving Competition! There's been a lot of great Legend of Korra info released this summer, so I hope to see a lot entries this year. And if you're in an area with the pumpkin shortages, don't worry, the contest accepts all carve-able veggies. :) Prizes so far include a 5-inch crocheted amigurumi Korra doll (photos coming soon), and the always-present custom fanart. We need a couple more though, so if you would like to provide a quality prize (be it fanart, crafts, etc), please email me for more info. Thank you!
