I was going to do a COW for Halloween, lol.
The absence of COW has nothing to do with people being "duhhh uhhhh ehhhhh"
Same with my lack of art output, I don't have time since I have other stuff I need to do. Work > ??? > Next art contest > COW is my priority.
... but let's be HONEST: the lack of activities is not DUE to the absence of COW, ChOW and Doubles.
As I have said countless times in the past, there is stopping you guys from making an activity thread
(apart from providing a shitty/no starting picture).
It doesn't have to be like COW - actually it would be better if it wasn't ,since there's a shit load of constraints (time, theme, competitiveness, and some non-existant obligation to the host).
Do something simple. Don't have a thread dedicated to baked beans, that's a shit idea. How about ... "Draw a Shark" thread, or "Draw a Cheeky Octopus".
In short, I'd prefer people created their own activity threads, rather than comment on the lack of them.
