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.

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.

===Planned Releases===
 
*The [[C12DS]] team is planning to release the metaroom during the CCSF
 
*[[Gardenia]] metaroom
 
*[[Life Kit#Life Kit #3 for Creatures 2|Unofficial Life Kit #3]] for Creatures 2

"Downloads week" began on Day 8, August 7th.
 
====August 7th====
 
* [[Amanora]] released the [[Snow Norn]]s for [[Creatures|Creatures 1]].
 
====August 8th====
 
* [[Amanora]] released the [[Butterfly Norn (C3/DS)|Butterfly Norn]]s for [[Creatures 3]] and [[DS]].
 
 
 
===Events and Games===
 
Another interesting part of this year's CCSF is that it will have several feature articles, in tribute to certain people, metarooms and agents.
 
 
 
The Festival web-games scheduled were unable to go ahead due to a lack of small prize donations. With notice perhaps this can be arranged in time for next year's [[Creatures 10|anniversary]] Festival.
 
 
 
This is also an attempt to bring the German and English communities together - [[Alien]] has offered to help translate the website to German so that the other half of the community can participate in the festivities. Hopefully some more interest will be raised in this side of the festival soon!
 
 
 
===Donations and Prizes===
 
The deadline for contributions for the 2005 festival was August 6th.
 
 
 
==Ideas==
 
Have an idea of an event or competition that could be held? Have a different idea about how we could improve upon the festival? Please post it on the [[Talk:Creatures Community Spirit Festival|discussion page]]!

The Creatures Community Spirit Festival (or CCSF) 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.
