A few announcements!

With Christmas looming we're running a couple of contests. Over on cpfanfic we're running the Christmas Challenge. Follow the link for details. Over on the Captain Planet Club on deviantArt we're running our annual Christmas Contest. There's even prizes up for grabs! Click here to find out all the info. 

I'm considering opening up a website dedicated to the Captain Planet fandom, most likely on WordPress, due to its customising capabilities, and broad access. It will feature posts much like you see here on geocruisin, though my intent is for it to be easier to navigate, share information and be broadly accessable for the general community. My vision is for the website to be similar in structure to many of the larger fandom sites, with dedicated pages for character profiles, episode discussions, news and follower posts. Before I move forward with this though, I want to gain a general idea of interest. Obviously customising and hosting a site requires time and money so I need to be able to justify this move. It would be great if you could please complete the poll to give me an idea of interest :)

How likely would you be to participate in a dedicated Captain Planet fandom website:

All the time

If you're interested in becoming a maintainer for the site please leave a comment below. 

And lastly, I'm immensely behind in posting those Halloween fanart submissions D: Sorry!! Without further ado - Benvolieo's All Tricked Out was voted in second place.

As mentioned in my previous post, I'll be sharing the great fanart submitted for the Halloween Contest.

Third place went to our very own frankiealton! Hers was the dark horse of the contest, sneaking up to steal third place with last minute votes.

A couple of modly announcements:

If anyone has any requests for challenges, discussions or content they would like to see appear on geocruisin, please let me know and I'll do my best to make it happen. Of course, you're always free to start up discussion posts, rec your favourite fanart or fanfic, or even start up an RPG. Once things settle down with work and uni in a fortnight's time I'll get back to our character profiles and episode discussions.

The Halloween Contest we ran on the Captain Planet Club on dA has finished and we have our winners! I will be posting them here, along with the other art submissions for you all to enjoy. A huge thanks to everyone that submitted and voted.

Let's start with our runner up! Kitty Linka by the very talented Chesney. Some of you may recognise Chesney because another piece of her artwork was on display on the Captain Planet facebook page in the leadup to Halloween!

Hey everyone, I'm after a bit of help :)

When is the first time the Planeteers actually face a true, real threat of death? Like, not just facing the inherent dangers of their job, but the first time maybe they're verbally/physically threatened by the bad guy and they realise they could be facing murder instead of just actual, you know, regular Planeteer danger.

I'm sure it's in an early ep, but I can't pin down an actual example, and I want to write fic. :p

The Q&A session is over, and unfortunately due to the timezone difference I wasn't able to take part :( Did any of our members make it? Do you still have pressing questions you wish you could have been answered?

You can view the questions asked here. Below, I have included a few that caught my eye, or answered a few previously unknown points.

The answers you seek...Collapse )

Anyone else watching this unfold and thinking, 'wtf'?

I wish our fandom was bigger :( It seems like most people asking the questions can barely remember the show (and so get a lot of things wrong and/or confused), or are trolls just ripping on everything.

I hate reddit.

Big announcement guys! It's Captain Planet day this Saturday 15th Sept - 22 years since it first aired! Damn I feel old. Anyway you can join Captain Planet Co-Creator Barbara Pyle and Exec. Producer Nick Boxer for a fan Q&A session where YOU ask the questions!!

This Saturday at 3PM Eastern on Reddit AMA - Reddit.com/r/iAMA. I did a quick time zone conversion for our Aussie fans and the event will be Sun 1am EST ;) 

CP Day 2012

What questions would you ask? I was very fortunate to have my two big questions answered by Barbara herself - Bleak's heritage and Wheeler's name - but now I don't know what else to ask! Perhaps how Dr Blight got her scar? Why was Bleak dumped in S6? Post your questions below! And if you are fortunate enough to hear an answer be sure to post that too!
