    We want to start having weekly creative events, similar to survival.
    What appears to be the most likely time is Saturday 4-5pmish CST.

    At first we're probably going to start of small and see how it goes, just testing one or two ideas. If it proves successful we might try and adapt it further.

    My thoughts were having quickbuilds;
    We can use the new plotworlds to make better contest areas, as we can customise the place and plots have boundaries ect, We could do 20 minute quickbuilds in the guest plot world (32x32 plots) and 60 minute quickbuilds in the builder one (100x100), this also allows guests to take part in some events.

    The alternative is doing what we did before, bigger month long builds, maybe in teams ect. <- doesn't rule this out, as we could do it during seasons/at certain times eg easter and xmas.

    We can't really offer prizes, but if the events do become popular we could maybe see about creating tags for players, or maybe gifting the temp world edit rank in certain situations, depends.

    Lets hear your thoughts! What times are good for you? What contest setups would you like, themed build or not? ect ect

  2. *Just an idea, maybe have like a tag for the entire team during the event that is happening if we do the long term builds.

    *Getting back to the quick build idea, Maybe have a tag that lasts until the next competition saying which competition they won, and if they wanna keep it they have to keep winning.

    I really like the idea of quick build competitions. I would enter in a heart beat. Sounds really fun. Also custom tags for winners of bigger events sound good. I also like il0v3an1mal5_39 idea about defending your title.

    Perfect timing for a fall harvest theme

    I believe that that was the first theme that was chosen :/

    Maybe a cave theme? It requires quite a different building style type than most of the other themes. Mostly because of the 'no houses' rule.

    This didn't really pick up any interest, so I'm still not sure whether its worth doing
