    Thanks for hosting MOC! Do templates count as 15% for MOC like they do in the gallery?

    Do we need to add links to the store when we upload to the gallery for the products we use?

    You do not have to add links, you do have to credit the kits.

    (Although, I will admit, hosts love when you link:cloud9)

    When posting in the Gallery do we just post under Challenges as there does not seem to be a MOC 8 heading?

    This is my second MOC and I know I asked this, but my memory... Well, she has my age.:giggle
    Can we use freebies as long as the designer is still selling at TLP? And Collabs with items from a designer is no longer at TLP?

    Freebies from current designers will work. Collabs that are still in the store are also fine (even if one of the designers is no longer at the store)

    Is it too late to sign up? December was a crazy month and I completely missed the announcement for this. I did last year and loved it. Would love to join in again.

    I am trying to make sure something I shared with someone else who had not done what I have been doing is correct.
    When we post our layouts in our own layout thread, do we need to have our page linked to the gallery? I thought it was in the instructions but I just reread them and it does not mention linking back to the gallery.

    Thank you to whoever answers this for me...

    I, too, failed to pre-register. Since I am going to be out of town for most of the month, I thought I wouldn't be participating. But during the morning chat I was encouraged to just do as much as I could. Is there somewhere I need to register?

    You can find information about registration in this thread (and it's not too late to register at all!):

    The MOC How Do I? thread shares how to copy the BBCode from the gallery in the challenge thread AND in the layout thread. If you follow those steps, you will have linked your page to the gallery.

    How do I add my gallery page to my forum post?
    Once you have uploaded your page to the TLP Gallery, click on your page and there will be options for sharing it on the right. To share the image full size, highlight the box under "Share BB Code" (third on the list). Copy it, then paste it into your layout thread and the challenge thread. To share the thumbnail image, highlight the box under "Share BB (With Thumbnail) Code" (fourth on the list). Copy it, then paste it into your layout thread and the challenge thread.
    @mrs2a50 Can you please confirm that the layouts should be linked the the member's gallery? Thanks!

    @A-M although the instructions do not spell it out, I will say, it is a real JOY to the hostess to be able to go thru her thread, and click on the pages and go right to the page in our gallery. We really love to leave love on the pages, and we are trying to get everyone (especially if we are hostesses of a challenge). It is a bit harder. We have to click (my gallery) on your post and then find the page.
    so............
    you won't be disqualified, but golly, I love getting love ♥♥♥

    @A-M - we do not require that you link back to the gallery. BUT, as Anne said, it makes things so much easier on the hosts, and on me, to verify compliance with the challenge. So if you are doing this, we appreciate it very much!!
