    This is the first month long Creative contest! You can work on it as a team or as an individual. Your build should look like it took a month to make and it should follow the theme. You will be judged entirely by players. It is possible to be promoted with a contest build. Anyone of any rank above guest can play.

    Rules are as follows:
    • Don't freak out if you don't win
    • Don't grief obviously
    • If you want promotions in a group build, have set areas in which each player builds
    • Don't copy (either your past builds or other's)
    To enter:
    1. Tell me you're going to participate by posting here
    2. Build something nice in the terrain world, in your apprentice plot, or in one of the contest apprentice plots at /warp Monthly
    3. Create a warp or ask an admin to create a warp to your build when you have finished
    4. (Optional but recommended) Take pictures of your build
    5. Post warp (mandatory) and pictures (optional) here if you took them
    Post in this thread to request a plot at /warp Monthly

    After the contest ends, the thread will be locked and a poll will be created. Anyone can vote on the poll. The winner is the person with the most votes. When voting, you should judge builds by whether or not they adhere to the theme and then how visually appealing the build is.

    Winner gets a free Steam game :D

    The theme for this month is steampunk. The contest will run from Sunday, September 7th to Tuesday, October 7th.

    You have a plot there now, just do /plotme home in the apprentice world

    I shall take part in this event of which you, Nava, hold so dearly. I shall build it in my Apprentice plot. However, there are a few issues of which I would like to ask you and acquire your wisdom specifically for this scenario. The main issue being whether the use of world edit is penalised, as I know it was during the old contests that A3 and Teh set up. Another question is, if we don't fill the plot completely, will we be persecuted? Or will we be judged on the skill of the particular area that is finished?
    Those we're my only two concerns. Thank you for holding such an amusing event.

    I would imagine that while WE would not be penalised, it would place you in an alternate category to those who are not. In the same way placing B2 builds up against those built by the best Arch's would be somewhat unfair (Generalisation, I know)

    As for the filling up the plot (again, my understanding/opinion), it would be a matter of how well the rest of it is filled up. I know that for my build, I intend to make it in the sky (#Spoilers), and making it a perfect squared would be somewhat ugly.

    Hmm. Will I be able to participate with singleplayer builds?

    Jojomojobfh Your plot is Monthly Plot II at /warp monthly

    Building with WE is fine, if there is a clear disparity between World Edited monthly builds and non World Edited monthly builds then separate polls will be made. How much of the plot you fill doesn't matter much, since it is possible to build in BII. Obviously, the more you build that is quality the better, but I'd rather you work on the detail of your build than the size of things.

    Soph and I decided that we probably shouldn't participate because were so busy with school, so we don't need out plot anymore. Sorry for the inconvience.
    (and the fact that we have no building skills)

    It's supposed to be an anachronistic amalgam of English Victorian period styles mixed with a gritty industrial revolution factories/machines. Think airships, steam engines, pneumatic devices, and mechanical contraptions with a lot of gears showing. Also, leather. Tons of leather. And goggles.
