Workshop Wonderland logo.png

Workshop Wonderland was an annual community showcase and charity event hosted by void~. Anyone who was willing to participate was encouraged to design winter-themed submissions encompassing anything that could be submitted to the Steam Workshop: weapons, cosmetic items, taunts, War Paints, or maps, and upload them with a special thumbnail designating a contest submission. These would then be compiled into a large showcase at the end of winter, for the community to enjoy. Each participant would receive an in-game medal, as a reward for their time.

In 2017, the showcase was rebranded as Nightmare Before Smissmas, and expanded to additionally include Halloween-themed submissions.

In 2015 and 2016, there was also a charity drive to support SpecialEffect, which would award users who donated over 5 USD to each charity drive with another medal. Players could earn both the participation medal and the donation medal, if they so desired.

Trivia

  • "Special" means either different from the rest or better than the rest. "Snowflake" is in keeping with the season, but is also a traditional metaphor for either uniqueness or fragility. Note: clinically exceptional emotional fragility is a serious consequence of developmental delay, requiring accommodation for success in education, and should not be ridiculed.
    • Traditionally, a "special snowflake" was intended as a supportive compliment to someone perceived as unusually different from others. The snowflake continues to be a metaphor and symbol for disabilities, especially those with social challenges.[1]
    • Recently (c. 2000s), "special snowflake" is a criticism of a person who is prone to taking offence from almost anything, or who is too emotionally fragile to cope with views that challenge their own.
  • Golden Snow, as referenced in the description to the Special Snowflake 2016, refers to biologically contaminated snow.
