What's that sound? It's the sound of SPRING! It's time for everyone to come out of hibernation and shake off any remaining snow flakes! Spring is here and we are READY to hop into April and celebrate with a seasonal site theme and colorful creations! We're excited for another community collaboration where we truly see the diversity and sum of our creativity come together.

Do I put all of my eggs in one basket? shopping_basket

Forget what you've heard about this silly phrase. During this themed month-long event, each member or team can enter up to five spring-themed creations! We welcome skins, maps and blogs or any combination of them. So you don't need to put all of your eggs in one basket; in fact, we encourage you to let your creativity blossom and submit something in as many categories as your creativity allows! As long as your entries relate to spring in some way, they are eggcepted in our Spring Fling event.

Event? Hrrrm. This means no competition, no judges and no final leader board. Okay, so what's the point. This event is for the pure fun of creating something together as a community and seeing the theme shine through! At the end of the event, each participant will receive a special award for their trophy case. Go alone, team up, hip to the hop, it's all good.

card_giftcard Okay, I made a spring thing! How do I fling it!?

Here's how you submit your entry, it's quite simple. Make sure your thing is spring related. How it relates to spring, is up to you but feel free to use the description when it's an abstract relation. Upload your creation to one of the following categories: Projects, Skins or Blogs. When submitting the entry, check the box indicating it's for the "Spring Fling Community Event". Budda-bing, you fling'd-a-spring-thing.

To add to the event hype between participants, we encourage you to diamond, favorite and comment on your favorite spring submissions this month. Maybe share your favorites in a wall-post or gather them into a collection! We appreciate receiving feedback on our creations.

Relax, you have the full month of April!

Even though this is a non-competitive event, we encourage you to do your best. The event will be active for the entire month of April, so don't rush it! Here are some tips for each category:

If you enter a project, we encourage you to share a world save or schematic so that we can use your creation in Minecraft. You can create any kind of project. That includes land, air, sea, space and time structures, adventure maps, redstone contraptions, organics, terraforms and pixel art. Be sure to include some good visuals (screenshots) and a clear description with your project to maximize the experience.

If you enter a skin, go for good usable character skins that people can use to dress-up spring-style in Minecraft! Start from scratch rather than using any default or common base textures. There are several Minecraft skin editing programs available but we recommend PMCSkin3D! If you need some help getting started with skins, PMC member Beanie made this excellent video tutorial on the basics of Minecraft skin editing!

If you enter a blog you naturally have more options than we can give advice on. The blog section allows for all kinds of writing, including stories, poems, articles and interviews. Write to impress and shuffle in some proper grammar whenever possible. Dot your i's and sip your teas as they can be hot.

If you enter artwork or a video, I love your unharnessed creativity and you can use the blog section to share it! We don't require featured images for blogs but a good one can raise an eyebrow or two resulting in more views so it's a recommendation. PMC member Chiaroscuro wrote a great tutorial on how to create featured images which will help you to create your own.
