    Ikuchan will be having her seitansai on this coming Jan 18 of next year, and with that in mind, we've decided to make a birthday message collection project!

    There hasn't really been that much plan for this project yet since it's just today when we have decided to make one, so please bear with potential lack of info, & don't hesitate to provide ideas or ask questions.

    To be honest, we're actually kind of short in time for this project given that her seitansai is just less than a month away from now.

    So right now, our initial plan is to make a poster which will be framed and can be hanged on the wall. The poster will contain all our messages. The design for the poster will be handled by @wahoho, but anyone who are willing to help may do so.

    Format:
    Typed messages only
    Character limit: 140 characters
    Language: English or Japanese
    Include your name and country (excluded in the character limit)
    Send your message at ikudonseitansai2015@gmail.com

    Target schedule:
    Dec 29 - checkpoint (hopefully, at least more than half of the messages should be sent already by this time so that the editor can already proceed with pre-designing)
    Jan 2 - deadline
    Jan 3 - design and preview
    Jan 4 - edit and review
    Jan 5 - order for printing
    Jan 18 - seitansai

    Notes:
    If you haven't received any reply from us (ikudonseitansai2015@gmail.com) then that means your message is valid and will be included.

    If you received a reply from us, then that means your message was invalid, most likely due to not following the format. We will be asking you to edit your message to make it valid and for us to include it.

    So please check your email. Thanks!

    ^

    This is actually in collaboration with the Japanese birthday committee, so it's a good opportunity to show off there's strong supporters across the sea as well !


    If anyone wants to send in Japanese, I offer my services to translate messages
    Do mind the character limit though.

    ^Oh, guessed that it was only a foreign project, and feel it a little rushed, but then is fine. Sending ;)

    ^ It is indeed a foreign project, but we're cooperating with her birthday committee just like the last time in our departure message project. Our birthday message project is separated from the Japanese' birthday message project.

    Name... Can it be an alias or nickname or does it have to be our real name? I apologize for the silly question.

    Thanks a lot to everyone who have submitted their messages! We're officially closing it now and will no longer accept newer entries. I'll post updates here once we're done with the final design. Once again, thanks!

    We've never expected that we'd reach 78 participants/messages for this project especially due to the limited time allotment for the submission of messages. Initially, our plan was just to make poster but after receiving this much messages, we've switched to booklet instead.

    We've came up with the final design and have it sent for printing already. The final product will be expected to arrive on Jan 10th or 11th. We will post pictures of it once it arrives.

    Here's the LQ preview for the final booklet design:

    Also, I'm now deeply apologizing to everyone for the inconsistencies of our decisions. We've considered including messages that have failed to follow the format we've set.

    It was the decision that I've made after realizing that I wasn't able to ask everyone who have failed to follow the format to make a revision of their messages. Also, some participants who have received a notice for revision weren't or couldn't make it in time. So instead of having those messages and works go to waste, we've decided to allow them to be included.
