December Building Contest?

Postby ravenpie52 » Tue Nov 29, 2016 10:30 pm

In order to celebrate the holidays, why don't we do a themed building contest? The theme could be to build something for a winter holiday and/or winter itself. I could level out a plot of land near town that could be used for future building contests. Then, within that plot of land, there could be sectioned off areas with a set size in which people can build.

The creations would need to be anonymous in order to hinder bias (With lettered or numbered plots). For the first half or more of December, there can be a stage of building, where people go online when others aren't, or at least making sure people aren't by the building area when they are working. Then, for the latter portion of December, there can be a community voting period. We have to be clear that there can't be any foul play while voting of course. I think the system will involve putting items into chests next to the builds. The Minecraft community is small and tight-knit enough that I think people can be held accountable.

There can be 3 categories where people submit a single vote for each:
Creativity, thinking outside the box
Craftsmanship, how skillfully built it is
Theme, how well it encompasses winter and/or the holidays

I will spend time building the plot before the 1st of December, so I am going to want proper feedback on who is interested in building pretty quickly. I need to know around how many plots are going to be needed. (Yeah, I'm cutting it kinda close, but I just got this idea now.)

Remember anything built close to the town could get overbuilt if and when the town needs to expand.

I'll make it decently far away, but not so far away that monsters spawn. ;)

Perhaps I can throw a little something in....the structure I like most will be copy+pasted (yes I can do that) in the upcoming town plot next to the Newbie Apartments, for decoration.

Re: December Building Contest! (Begins!)

Postby ravenpie52 » Wed Nov 30, 2016 8:02 pm

Okay everyone, after hours of work, the plot is finished! We can now begin the building portion of the contest. The deadline will be decided in a little bit and we will set a date for the start of voting.

I put a message board at the site in order to post the contest rules, so make sure to read it if you want to participate.
The location of the site is the very Southwest corner of the safe zone in the town dimension. I recommend heading West first, then walking to your left (South). That way, you see the front of it, instead of the back or the sides.

Okay, I've pushed this back as far as I could, I originally wanted to have the winners decided on Christmas, but instead, we should start voting on Christmas. So, the cutoff time for building is officially 12:00 pm on American Central Time on the 25th. Then, the voting period will end on the last day of December. The winners will be announced on the 1st of January.

You have until the bolded time to build your entries. After that, voting should begin.

EDIT: Since there hasn't been much building at all, I've extended the building time to the end of the month!

Well, there are two creations now. It's a lot less than I was hoping, but oh well. I will give it a week from now for the voting.

2 is better than 1, and 1 is much better than 0.

Because the festivities will end soon I'll preserve my favourite one ready for next winter.

I think I found the plots but there're no buildings or anything....so there'll be no reconstruction for this Christmas.

Sorry but I can't copy+paste something that doesn't exist.

Oh whoops! I can always rebuild mine, I have a version of it in a singleplayer game. I guess I asked for everything to be taken down too quickly!
