Are we gonna have another MAP Contest or not?

The other thread turned into an off topic rant..

I am keen on the "INN""TAVERN" Theme.
I Like the Idea of keeping it to One Page.

"Official" is a strong word, but yes, the game's afoot ...    ... Just start building ...
The first one that is finished should make a clear thread in the Maps forum. Something like: "Contest: Inns & Taverns" .

And I think Rant is a rather harsh word.

Giggle-fest is more appropriate.   

I can't wait to see what people come up with. Have we decided on basic rules yet? So far we have:

1. All art can be used. Including new never before seen art, but you must post all the new art when you post the map. If people do not have the art packs - it will just encourage them to get them.

2. Everyone will be the judge. Poll or just a count of votes. The winner will get to choose the next building type for the following month.

3. Seven days are needed for voting and voting must be done before the last day of the month so that the winner is declared on the first day of the next month.

4. Inns are the first building type.

5. Other rules can be added by popular demand

6. It all must fit on one page. Multiple floors allowed. (But minimal exterior work?)

7. Give it an appropriate title (backstory optional, but nice, like who owns it, how old it is, maybe previous names or infamous events).

8. Most important rule... Enjoy yourself.

Well, here we are 5 days into the month and nobody has posted a map for this yet?

Sheesh, you all must really be sweating the competion to not post something.

I just have to work on the Ruined Manor first ... it's big and difficult (I'm a perfectionist <sigh>). But, I have a great idea for an inn

And then there is the stuff I do for others, I like doing that too

One more question: When are we going to do the first CSUAC contest? That will be a great way to promote the standard!

Recommendation--hold off on the CSUAC contest until after April is complete--that will allow some time to knock out all the kinks.

OK, so as I understand it, we have a tavern / inn contest with a deadline of 23 April. Voting takes place from 24-30 April.

Recommendation: Subject line starts with CONTEST:

Do we want entries stickied until the contest is over?

EDIT: How many times can someone enter?

That's just showing off C.
I'd say as much as you like. We want to have as much maps as possible, right?
Hack, somebody might have a few good idea's for inns, so why stop at one then (no, I'm not going to enter one inn in a dozen different colors ... )

I think:
1) to keep the voting simple, we should be limited to one entry per player. If they make one, then make another better one later, the first should be pulled (change the Subject line, unsticky it, whatever) from the contest

2) the entry should begin with CONTEST

3) the entries should be stickied until the voting is over, at which time the winner gets stickied for the month of May (since this contest is mainly for bragging rights )

4) Kepli gets smacked just for suggesting that he'd make the same inn in a dozen different colors

Anybody else?

Maybe instead of stickying them all you should create one thread for them--twenty different stickies on the Maps board could be kind of a problem...winner stickied for a month is not.

And I think one of the rules should be 'Only new material'. I doubt anyone's going to enter a map that won the 'last' contest or whatever, I just think it should have some originality. (And don't complain that I'm cutting corners, *my* first map was a [so-so] inn.)
Or at least limit them to those made since the 'Map Contest' thread, so that if Mystery Cat or grimcatch's maps were for the contest they could be included.

But hey, I'm just a noob, what do I know

I've stickified the current contest entry. I'll continue to do so until too many complaints are raised.

As soon as voting is done, I'll unsticky all but the winner.

Make sense?

Watch Kepli make a greyscale inn and throw us all for a loop!
