Seton Staff Note: Feedback Wanted! Sharing Your Creative Ideas

Seton Staff Note: Feedback Wanted! Sharing Your Creative Ideas
Dominic de Souza

Hi everyone,

Hope you’re doing well!  Couple of thoughts to get your feedback. :)

1. Let’s keep it positive

Our comment boxes have blown up this past month, which is awesome. :) It’s great to see everyone having a good time, and keeping it supportive and respectful to each other.

Seton staff does monitor all these discussions to ensure a kind and supportive environment.

Let’s keep up the great attitudes.

2. Creative ideas

That being said, we’ve noticed plenty of creative ideas among the students, which is why we’re running the latest poll-set in our sidebar. Based on how much interest is generated, we may turn them into a future challenge.

Some things are truly fascinating, like composition and crochet, but we know that there aren’t enough students to justify hosting a community-wide challenge.

So, what we can do about it is something different. We can release it as an article, sharing the interesting things that our community gets up to.

The Seton staff will review what you submit and let you know!

Shoot us a comment or question either here or through our contact form letting us the kinds of creative things you do that we don’t have contests or challenges for, and which you’d like to share with the community.

3. Student Achievements

We do have a ‘Student Achievement‘ website, where we share student achievements recognized by independent groups and organizations. You can let the community know what you get up to over there as well.

    This is neat. I do have a quick question, though. Are we just supposed to tell you all what we’ve done, and how we’ve done it, or what? I’m a little confused….

      Great question. :) You can either ask about it here, or shoot us a question via the contact form to ask more.

      And yes, this is about those creative things that you do that we don’t have challenges or contests about.

        So, should I just explain in detail the things I’ve done?–On here?

          If you have something you’d like to share, then sure. …We’re not looking for *everything* you do, of course. :D For example, if you enjoy rock climbing, and took photos of the day, you could share that as an article.

          Or if you like composing music, you can send us some of your work and we’ll consider sharing on the Bulletin. Does that help?

            Yes, absolutely. Thank you! :)

    Oh crochet made me laugh, I sew all the time and would definitely enter XD

    Having said that, I think an art contest, or a photography contest wouldn’t be half bad to enter either. Though I have to say from personal experience… Its challenging to get the proper compensation for lighting with a camera in a church ^^; if there ever was a photography contest, there would have to be a prompt with subcategories like, ‘still life’, ‘people’, ‘architecture’…

    It all depends on the prompt though.

    If Seton really wanted to do Photography right and do the art form justice… Whoever puts it on might want to check out the website ‘Deviantart’ because they host contests all the time and those are tons of fun. :)

      Oooh, really?? I will have to check that website out. :) Yeah, it’s kinda hard to take pictures in Church (most of the time). If you have a little time before the event (if you’re taking pictures of a baptism or something) to mess with your camera, you can correct the white balance and stuff. Or just edit it on the computer if you have decent software (which I don’t:))

      I’m not sure I quite understand this, though – are we supposed to write articles on our interests with pictures or samples included? And how are we supposed to enter them? Through the contact form?

      Thanks!
