We are Under Construction


It looks like we'll be moving back on to this group in the future! But first we need to do some cleaning. In the meantime, please do continue to use the-OCT-list! We'll be moving all that info over here again once we're ready.

Hello.
It's Aegypius-X
I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to... um. Anyway.

As many of you have noticed, this group hasn't updated in quite some time. It hasn't updated on a regular schedule for even longer than that. I don't know where everyone has gone, but c'est la vie. I'm sure everyone has their own individual reasons for not being here. And while that's perfectly fine, it's left a lot of you asking where you can find new OCTs to join.

I tried a few times earlier last year to get this place going again. It didn't really take. A few newer people tried to help, but they weren't given proper instructions on how to add updates (it's probably way more complicated than it ought to be) and several things were changed on one page and not another. New OCTs haven't been added. Old OCTs haven't been removed. Getting everything going and in order again is a project we just don't have the manpower for.

What I've done instead is create a brand new group called the-OCT-list, with staff I trust and what is hopefully a more streamlined way for us to get listings up. I'm inviting you all to join me, to share and find your OCTs there. We're small and empty right now, but I hope that will change very soon. There will be staff opportunities in the near future as we grow. I hope we can make you're OCT lives much easier.

As for OCT Followers, I'd like to thank you all for being here. This has been a great group for so long, and it's been my pleasure to help run it. But barring a sudden and miraculous recovery (which I would certainly not mind being a part of, btw), I think it's time to say goodbye.

~Aegy

I'll assume that someone failed to mention that :iconplanetimpossibleoct: originally had a deadline of April 1st and has made it indefinite until there are 16 entries.

That would be a correct assumption. :) Thanks for the update on Planet Impossible, and we shall correct our records shortly~

Hey there! Sorry, but I'd like to point out a correction for :iconsurvivethenightoct:! I'm hosting it on my main account, so that would be here at ParzifalsJudgment, not OCT-Willpower, sorry!

Thanks for the promo, though!

Man, always wanted to do an OCT. Was going to about a year ago but got super-busy, and pretty much have been ever since. Such a shame, because I feel like they're one of the coolest things that happen on deviantART.

Me too.
But my problem is that I always switch my interestings to something else, like
"oh I really LOVE this game so I'm gonna play it!" -played about half of the game-
"oh wow this series is so awesome, gonna watch it!" -watched only the first season-
"ah hey I started a new art project"  -...- you get the idea. xD
It's really hard to stay focus on one project. ^^

I wanna participate in an OCT but none of the ones listed catch my interest : (

Then I suggest you wait for one which catches your interest. You may not know it, you might do great in one. :)

Its a bit slow this month, a lot of tournies had set their start dates for during or just after winter break. But we get new ads all the time, I'm sure something will pop up :)

May I help? I have much free time and I pretty much don't know how to spend it. 
So, I at least want to do something productive. Helping others. :)
I also want to be updated about the OCTs, so, why not join you guys?

There is a small typo with #ThePublisherOCT's audition deadline; it closes on the 17th of August, not the 27th. Don't want anyone to get mixed up! DX

My OC is incomplete and probably doesn't meet the standards of a real OC

Most if not all of the OCT Veterans have more then one character, if you feel the one you're creating is not ready, create another whose more suited to a certain OCT and learn from that character, see what you can do better next time ;)

People move on to other groups, lose interest in OCTs, leave deviantART, get burned out from spending too long doing one thing..... There are many reasons why the old staff members have begun to drop off, all of which are perfectly reasonable. :) We like to keep people here for as long as possible, but ultimately, we are volunteers. And it's just time to get some new volunteers! :D

"Do you love OCTs?"
"Do you have a lot of free time? Or even NO free time?"
"Do you spend all your time on deviantartART anyway?"

...

Where do I sign?
