Welcome to OMEGA, a charity created and run by me, Ahlise.I've been a member of Gaia for many years, though I have been more sparse these past couple years than back in when I first started. However, I am back now and here to help the community with their pixel dreams. I had always intended to make a charity atone point, but never got around to it. Luckily for all of you, I have finally gotten around to it.

I will hold competitions for the artists, writers, and graphic designers, as well as reward those who stay and chat in the thread. While I will have a little form for you to list your quest, participation will be a must to receive a gift. I will not reward those who come for gold then never show up again.

Currently, my donation bank is fully funded by me. I will be accepting donations, though I will never ask for any. I will do my best to maintain a high balance so we can keep this going a long time. I will update the balance once a week.

OMEGA Bank Balace is:

Rules
User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.

1. Follow the TOS. No exceptions.
2. No drama, flaming, complaining - just lay off the negativity. I strongly dislike people who are constantly negative.
3. Begging is a no-no and it will null your chances at winning contests or receiving donations.
4. Conversation is highly encouraged. I like to talk about everything and anything.
5. Be polite and respectful to everyone.
6. You may participate in one contest category at a time. If you win the contest, you must sit out that category for one round, then you may participate again. You may still participate in the other categories. This is to keep the winners diverse and so no one wins twice in a row.
7. You may be lucky and receive multiple donations. So stick around.
8. Using mules to abuse this charity is not allowed.
9. Excessive bumping or spamming is not allowed. I don't want to see someone posting over and over to themselves to grab a page count prize. It will not be awarded if I observe that.
10. If you have any questions, concerns, or nice words, feel free to let me know.

Application and Donations
User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.

Once a week, three people will be chosen to receive large gold donations towards their quest. If a person was chosen, they will not be eligible again until a month has passed.

Normal donations between 10k-50k will be presented to those who have filled out an application and stayed and chatted. You probably won't be donated to right away. I would like to get to know you first. Please do not spam my inbox either.

Please post this if you are hoping to be considered.

Nicely done layout. I often find the more flashy layouts over whelming and are TL;DR.

This is tasteful, easy on the eyes and not too much to read, good job.
