• Effective October 15th, all Youtube content threads that are posted within the creative media section will be subjected to being moderated before being displayed. Over the past year we've noticed lots of new members and a few old members that come here to advertise (obviously here since we're the largest Kingdom Hearts fan base community why wouldn't you) their Channel to promote new subscribers, likes, and displaying their media. However there is a huge difference between creative constructive media criticism, and borderline advertisement. So please, before you post here, understand how the creative media section works, if you have any questions or concerns regarding this change please reach out, we always like to hear ideas. Few might not like this idea, but it does help keep my section stay organized and not crazy looking, I would like to keep the traditional platform of what the section main purpose is for. It's to help build new and old artistry to an entire whole level.



    Here's how it will work :

    • If you post a thread within the creative media section that is youtube content related to your channel, it will be moved to the "Creative Media Youtube Showing Content thread", a sticky'd thread where members can all over discuss and see everyones content all at once rather than making it self promoting, by making your own thread, if you get my drift. The whole idea behind this is to get members involved in everyones media, and the purpose is to showcase your works, but not self advertisement right? Its all about the constructive criticism and giving everyone the same feedback and layout of how display and showcasing video media should look like.

    • If you have already posted a thread regarding your youtube content, you will not be affected by this change and your thread will be untouched and you can continue to post and discuss accordingly with your peers.


    Social Media Advertisement Content :​

    Now I know lots of new members (out of the blue suddenly became youtube friendly, you're not slick) be-aware that you cannot use the Creative Media section as a gateway to advertise your media without wanting, giving and receiving criticism from your forum family. The idea behind the Creative Media is to help showcase and help improve everyones work or arts, whether it's digital, traditional, etc. Not to promote then leave, it's not fair to the community.

I've been working for a while on a card game where players play superheroes and fight bad guys. I'm at a state where I have enough to make some mock cards to try out the badic gameplay a bit. For mock cards I'll be using some regular drawing paper (sturdier than normal paper so if possible it could be used for further tests instead of becoming a crumpled and torn mess after 1 game), but I've been having trouble finding the same type of cardboard for actual cards. Does anyone know where I could find that?

If you're going for cards the size of traditional playing cards, you can easily and cheaply snap up a deck or two of blank playing cards. In fact, even if you are planning on unusually sized or shaped cards, I'd recommend you use blank playing cards for the prototyping phase since you'll spend it constantly changing this and that, so it's best to go with the cheapest option. Since you're at the prototyping phase, I'd recommend either something like this, which is blank on both sides:

https://www.amazon.com/Blank-Playing-Cards-Casino-Quality/dp/B01H4CZQ14/

Or something like this, which at least gives you a pre-printed obverse, which can be helpful during prototyping because it gives an at-a-glance information about which side is which. That might sound silly but you may already know what I mean from your paper prototype.

https://www.amazon.com/Bicycle-Blank-Face-Back-Deck/dp/B0036ZHC2A/

Although be aware that the first item I linked gives you 214 cards, while the second gives you 52 for more than half the price of the 214 fully blank cards. You're paying quite a bit just for some fancy backs.
