.:New Contests!:. [12/28

We'll be using this thread for posting about any new contests that pop up over time to minimize the number of threads we are spamming you guys with. =) With that said, I wouldn't be posting about this if there wasn't a new contest going on right now! O= It may be a type of contest we've held before, but it's one that we haven't seen in a long time to say the least. Why don't you head on over to the contest area and check it out for your chance at winning a Mysterious Egg and an item to match!

Family means nobody gets left behind, or forgotten.

You, my family, are my greatest treasure .
I won't let that be stolen.

Welcome Contest #16!

It's a little bit unusual, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the topic! This one will last a long while, but I hope it'll get some people excited~




Dear Diary,
Today I died. I was killed by
this thing (ugly) in some place.
I leave all that I own to my cat Guppy (cool stuff!).
Goodbye cruel world,
xoxo

It looks like Contest #17 is up before contest 16 has even ended. I just couldn't help myself. o ^o

An update for the entries of Contest #16.

Please post in the Contest #16 JUDGING topic and tell us where we're supposed to move your entry(ies).

Concerning this, we have finally decided on a universal system for those bonuses. You gain the RP bonuses, if applicable, of the original topic location. This means that, for this contest, if you move your entry to X RP area, you do not get its bonuses. If your entry was not done and you continue posting, then from then on, you may add the bonuses for the future levels gained there.

Handy example is handy:

Joy and Andy's posts in the Contest Area - +1 to everything/5 posts
Joy and Andy's posts in the Sa'fir Coast, once moved there officially - +2 Endurance bonus applicable/5 posts

So if you posted 10 posts while in the Contest area, those 2 levels get +1 everywhere. If you then gain a level in Sa'fir Coast, after the entry was moved there, you can start applying the +2 Endurance bonus.

This is universal and everything will work like this from now on.
The only exception we had to this rule was Whisper Forest, since the area didn't exist at the time.

Does this make sense? If not, feel free to ask any question.

There appears to be a new contest available. Why don't you all go check out Contest #19 and use those creative minds of yours for us?

With the sneak peek of the new breedable, it looks like you can help us try to make more markings for the Soveris. Come and join Contest #20!

A Baal verified guide of where markings can go has been added to the top of this post to clarify any confused users working on their entries for contest #20. I hope this helps, and good luck!

So I sort of realize that four winner's slots is sort of really small for the amount of markings that are really catching my attention. As a general question, I wonder how everyone would feel if more winners are chosen? What I mean is that there would still be the four top winners who are chosen for their outstanding creativity and design, but if more entrees are chosen to add to the marking roster, those are also given a small reward? Or perhaps given an entry into a raffle or something?

Anyway, this isn't official or anything at the moment, I was just wondering what everyone would think of that idea? Would it be infuriating? Or would more people enjoy seeing their markings being used on the site? Just curious! :D

(Also sorry if this doesn't make AS much sense as it should. It's like 3AM here. << >>)

I'm okay with more winners than four. o3o For me personally, seeing a marking I created officially on the site is prize enough for me. But what about Alonia prizes? o3o For those that do get accepted but don't get into the top ranks?

I am not as fine as I seem
Pardon, me for yelling and telling you green gardens
Are not what's growing in my psyche, it's a different me
A difficult beast feasting on burnt down trees
Freeze frame, please let me paint a mental picture portrait
Something you won't forget, it's all about my forehead
And how it is a door that holds back contents
That makes Pandora's box contents look non-violent
Behind my eyelids are islands of violence
My mind ship-wrecked this is the only land my mind could find
I did not know it was such a violent island
Full of tidal waves, suicidal crazed lions
They're trying to eat me, blood running down their chin
And I know that I can fight, or I can let the lion win
I begin to assemble what weapons I can find
'Cause sometimes to stay alive you gotta kill your mind

I don't mind seeing more winners that receive smaller prizes. =) I'm seeing quite a few that I'd love to see too, so yeah. Definitely. XD I'd say an Alonia pet is a bit much since those are customs (so worth easily as much as some of the other prizes), but yeah. More winners = good

True, but places first through fourth are getting custom breedables. o3o Maybe keep first place as it is, change second place to 1 custom (either paragon, lucain, or a random diosol), third place to an alonia pet, and fourth place is ks only?

I definitely am okay with the idea of more than just four winners, seeing as there are quite a few different markings that I like, also. I think I at least have a favorite from every user that entered, so yeah, I'd love to see a good number of the entries as official markings. As for the prize itself, I don't have too much of an opinion, be it a small prize or a little larger of a prize.

Edit: Though I will say that I don't really think the prizes for the existing top four should be altered, since they were already announced. o3o

Meh, personally, if any of my markings were to get picked, seeing my marking all over evelon would prize enough for me. ^^ I just made the suggestions to give Baal ideas.

But then again, I did opt for an alonia prize instead of a custom lucain when the arach marking won a contest, so maybe I'm just weird. xD;

More winners means more gorgeous markings all over Evelon, right? X3 So I say, go for it! Maybe give all the winners a choice of smaller prizes, like, say, a choice between so much KS, a few GT, and maybe a Chaos Draught or something.

These lofty thoughts are killing me
Preoccupied by what I could be
I get so high on my ideas
Don't call me down
But you can meet me where I land.

I
Left the bay
In pursuit
Of lucid dreams
Now I
Drive for days
To make my way back to those old familiar places
