Today we begin ROUND THREE of our Animation Summer Jams event, where every 2-4 weeks we'll announce a new theme and everyone is invited to create animations around said theme. Points will be awarded each round, with winners announced at the end of the summer. You don't have to participate in every round but you'll have the most opportunities to earn points that way.
The Round Three theme is THE PROBLEMS OF THE FUTURE.
You have three weeks to create an animation that explores a problem you could imagine people experiencing in the future.
Include "ProblemJam" in your tags so we find your entry!
Minimum length: 15 seconds (you can make it longer).
Music must not present licensing / royalty issues. Good resources include the Audio Portal (see Creative Commons info or ask for permission), an original composition by a teammate or one of these many royalty-free resources.
Your entry can be funny, serious or something in-between.
As lead animator, you may partner with background artists, in-betweeners, colorers, writers, voice actors, musicians and sound effects artists.
The lead animator is the one who earns points in each round of this event. Support members may work with multiple animators and change things up each round.

Your Friends section is now mobile friendly and will load a lot faster, especially for people with lots of friends. As before, you can place your friends into groups and sort by those. There have always been larger plans around this system; we'll see how things go!
On your account page you can now set your status to always appear offline, if you don't want people to know when you are on-line.
