The theme for Contest 37 will be No theme/Whatever you want. Entries will be accepted for 12 weeks, from now until Friday, March 16, 2018. Submit your entries in this thread with pictures and a description. Please start a new post for each entry instead of putting multiple entries in one post.

Be sure to read and follow the rules of the contest listed below. (Seriously, read them, follow them! If you have questions, just ask.) Also, as always, please don't put any pictures in here that aren't actual submissions. Also, also, please make sure we can see your picture here on MAIL. This is a MAIL contest and we are not responsible for roaming the entire internet to find your entry picture.

If you plan on entering the contest, let me know in here with an "I'm in". Okay! Ready, Set, Go make something that is... nothing or whatever you want!

______________________________________________

Contest Rules
1. Entries must be previously unsubmitted work. Entries must be at least 2/3 maille woven within the time frame of the contest. The remaining 1/3 can be any maille previously woven or any non-maille. Maille consists of any rings, metal or otherwise, or ring substitutes like scales or pop tabs. Non-maille consists of things like beads or wire wraps.

2. You can submit as many entries as you like.

3. Pictures and descriptions of the entry must be submitted to the contest submission thread before the deadline, by hosting the pictures offsite and placing the picture in your post with the Img link. Please don't make us hunt for your entry because it is posted on another site. (In other words, you need to use an image hosting site to place your picture in the entry thread. They are free to use, you just have to register with them to create an account. Some examples of image hosting sites are TinyPic, Photobucket, Flickr, and ImageShack.) Pictures must be a MAXIMUM of 100KB and a MAXIMUM of 800px per side.

4. The submission period for entries generally lasts 12 weeks. After the deadline for contest entries, the contest organizer will create a voting thread with all the entries, to be voted on by the membership. The entire membership may vote, each member having one vote. Polls usually last one week before the winner is declared.

5. The winner of the contest will receive a colored shield by their avatar with a number corresponding to the contest they won. The winner will also be granted automatic inclusion of their suggestion on the list of themes for the next contest.

6. The contest organizer may invalidate any entry. If you have concerns about your or any other entry, please contact the contest organizer with a PM. If the contest organizer deems it necessary, a new thread for public discussion will be opened.

I'm in. Now the difficult thing will be to think of what to make.

I just now saw this as the homepage feed for me hasn't updated for months. It doesn't seem to matter whether I'm logged in or not.

Is it just something weird with my browser, or is it broken for everyone else, too?

Front page headlines are currently impossible to add. It’s broken.

OK. There for a while when the home page wasn't being updated I was afraid mailleartisans was dead! I'm glad it's just a malfunction. I'll keep an eye on the forum main instead of the home page for now. Coif Cool Smiley

i made this Collared Vest out of BA 14 swg 5/16 9/32 and 1/4. the main weave is a diagonal snake skin pattern with tree ring thick rows of each ring size. sorry about the bad focus but i only took one shot of each side cause i was in a rush and bigger pieces are just impossible to shoot anyway..

Wow.

If I was in this for the winning, then I might as well give up now. Fortunately I'm not in this for the winning, but the challenge.

Indeed it is about the challenge. But with a theme of "no theme", I'm finding it impossible to think of a "challenge" to challenge me!
