The '''Creatures Community Spirit Festival''' is an annual event in the [[Creatures Community]], started in 2004 by [[Erin]], [[Liam]] and several other community members. The Festival was an attempt to bring some life back into the community, and did, to a point, with a [[metaroom]] ([[Zaharo]]) being released, and a few [[agent]]s and [[COB]]s including the [[Purple Mountain Hootch]] by [[malkin]], but many were disappointed with its length - originally a mere week. In the future it will be a fortnight-long festival (minimum), held roughly over the first two weeks of August, starting on a Sunday, with various events happening around the community.

==Overview of this year's festival==
 
This year the CCSF is centered around the idea of '''Give Back''' with a theme of '''Nature'''.
 
  
Quite a few [[agent]]s, [[room]]s, and [[breed]]s will hopefully be released, and some Important Announcements will be made, as well as a few brilliant new websites.

Revision as of 09:17, 25 July 2018

The Creatures Community Spirit Festival or CCSF in short is an annual event in the Creatures Community, started in 2004 by Erin, Liam and several other community members. The first Festival was an attempt to bring some life back into the community, and it did, to a point. However, many were disappointed with its length - originally a mere week. Now, it is a fortnight-long festival held roughly over the first two weeks of August (Autumn) or November (Winter), with various events happening around the community.

Volunteer coordinators initially ran the festival two years in a row before handing over the position to a new candidate; thus each year had one more experienced coordinator and one new recruit. The Festival also relies heavily on volunteer developers and translators that make up the rest of the team.
