    Special thanks to @Toukans for making the banner! ♥
    Let’s spread the love this Valentine’s Day with a day packed with Valentine's Day events! We’ve got:
    Secret Valentine’s Day CardsMM Valentine’s Day BannerValentine’s Day TriviaValentine’s-themed RaffleValentine’s Day Movie Screening

    ~~~

    ❤️ Secret Valentine’s Day Cards ❤️
    You guys remember back in grade school you all made Valentine's Day cards for your classmates and they had nice goodies? WE’RE DOIN’ IT TOO! Similar to Secret Santa, each person will be assigned a secret Valentine and their task is to make a Valentine’s Day card! Please note: These are kept SECRET. Do not go around telling others who your assigned Secret Valentine is. These cards should contain “To:/From:” and a short sentence that show some love, lots of appreciation, and/or a compliment! The point is to share the love this Valentine’s Day! Now, I know I started this kinda late, but I think we have plenty of time to make something simple and cute! Here’s what we’re kinda going for!

    DATES:
    RULES:
    FORM:

    ❤️ MM Valentine's Day Banner ❤️
    In the thread that will release everyone's cards for each other, instead of spending hours making a banner, I thought it'd be cool if we made one together! Kind of like a drawpile! No sign-ups needed, either PM me on Maplemation or Discord a PNG of your signature (username or preferred name)! You can add a little doodle next to it if you would like. Simple enough, right? So if you don't think you can't make a Secret Valentine's Day card in time, you can still be a part of the MM Valentine's Day banner! This will be posted on the Maplemation Facebook as well! I will be accepting these up until February 12th!

    RULES:

    ❤️ MM Valentine's Day Trivia ❤️
    This sounds interesting, huh?! Basically, I will ask each of you a different question, related to something Valentine's Day or of the like. On Valentine's Day, along with the thread, I will post a trivia quiz of all of the trivia I collect from you guys!! Take a fun quiz and learn some more about the members of Maplemation! :)
    To sign up, just simply message me on either Maplemation or Discord PM's and ask to be part of the trivia! I assure you, I will not ask extremely personal questions. For example, what's your favourite type of candy and what does an ideal date sound like for you? I will send out all of the trivia no later than February 6th. I expect the answers back before February 12th, so I have enough time to compile it all! >_<


    ❤️ MM Valentine's Day Raffle ❤️
    An event is no fun without fun prizes! For this MM Valentine's Day event, we are hosting a Valentine's Day-themed raffle! Here are the available prizes:
    $5 Steam Card from @Tra-La-Tracey
    Cute character Art, and a portrait from @Toukans
    Drawing from @Aquila
    Sprite from @Karasu

    These are some sick prizes, am I right?! Or am I right? To enter, you have to participate in the Secret Valentines card exchange, banner, and trivia! The lucky raffle winners will be announced in the thread posted on Valentine's Day!!
    *Prizes will be distributed by the corresponding raffle prize givers after; guaranteed within 10 days after Feb. 14th*


    ❤️ MM Valentine's Day Movie Night ❤️
    To end the lovey-dovey day, I'm hosting a movie night on Rabb.it! We will be watching Lady and the Tramp and discover more innuendos/secrets we didn't notice as kids!! The movie will be 6:00PM PST. Schedule accordingly! I will post the Rabb.it invite link both on the MM Valentine's Day thread and in the MM Discord. Everyone and anyone is welcome! :)

    ~~~


    ...Wow, that's a lot to take in, huh? Well, the main dates are in the Secret Valentine card exchange portion~ Remember to sign up for the card exchange by the 5th! I know that's only 3 days... but I believe we can have a great turn out! This will be fun, y'all! :DD Can't wait to see the final thread on the 14th! :D
    Remember, if you have any questions, feel free to @ me in the MM Discord or PM me directly! :) <3

    ~Tracey
    tldr;
    Card exchange sign-up - use the form and post here
    Banner participation - PM or DM me a png of your signature
    Trivia sign-up - PM or DM me and I will send you Q's on Feb 6th-ish
    Movie night - Lady and the Tramp | 6PM PST | Rabb.it

    ❤️ FAQ ❤️

    Q: How do I enter the raffle?
    A: You must participate in the three events (Secret Valentine's Day cards, trivia, banner).

    Q: For the banner, what do we draw?
    A: I just want to represent everyone who is in the community! I would prefer a drawn signature (not typed); You can have a drawing/doodle next to it. As long as you follow the rules, anything goes! Before the 13th, I will be accepting these!

    Q: How can I be part of the trivia?
    A: Easy! Just tell me you want to be part of it, via PM on Maplemation or DM on Discord or just @ me on the MM Discord server!

    Q: What if I don't know my Secret Valentine very well?
    A: Hit them up on Discord (without being discovered! :o)! Lurk around the forums and Discord server to see what they talk about and make a positive statement about it! ^-^

    Q: Do we sign up for the trivia and banner by the 5th as well?
    A: The sign-ups deadline on the 5th is only for the card exchange. Anytime before the 12th, you can sign up for the trivia by letting me know and send me a PNG of your signature for the banner!

    Q: For the banner, can we include our Maple characters?
    A: No please~ This is intended to be a drawpile-similar banner, not a collage. D:

    Q: For the banner, what format would you like and how do you want it?
    A: Please refer to the rules in the original thread! PNG, transparent background, and properly coloured.

    You can use Google Drive (make sure to allow permissions to everyone), Mediafire, puush, Dropbox to upload a .ZIP/.RAR file of your character. Alternatively, you can post a concept art of your character, like what Prickly and Kim did!

    Just as Tracey said. OR, if you're like me, you can upload a file OF your character for the public to see. That's how I got the photos I wanted in the threads I posted.

    I wouldn't get my hopes up, Kim. The Secret Valentines are randomly assigned.
