    Default Who Wants Some Free REX?

    ATTENTION DIMENSIONEERS!

    Dimension Conest: Let's Go Out Today

    The theme of this contest is public spaces and places. Any dimension in game is allowed for entry.

    Let's Go Out Today: Public spaces to include, but not limited to churches, theaters, stadiums, museums, libraries, national monuments and tourist attractions. Get your thinking caps on and be creative! There are multiple categories for size, and the prize for the winner in each category is 20 USD in REX. Since the prize is REX, the contest is open to ALL shards, NA and EU.

    Exclusions: Guild Halls, puzzles, mazes, and dimensions with a private home as the focal point.

    Categories: Starter (Sanguine Shores and Warden's Point)
    Small (Dolcega Valley, Kestrel's Cry Ravine, and all equivalently sized dimensions)
    Medium (Faen's Retreat, Central Necropolis, Strozza Estate and Temple of the Abandoned)
    Large (all others, to include the loyalty dimensions)

    Each category has it's own winner!

    The Prize: 20 USD in REX

    The Rules: One entry per account. If a contestant has more than one potential entry, choose your best. Entries in more than one size category from the same builder will result in all entries being excluded.
    Entries must be in keeping with the theme of public places. See above for the definition of public spaces. Entries mature in nature will be accepted. Entries that are pornographic will not be.
    Commissioned works: commissioned works will be accepted. However, I will contact the dimension owner for entry permission. If a commissioned work wins, the prize will be split between the owner and the builder.
    Recommendations: If anyone sees a dimension worthy of entry, throw their name out there! However, contact information (name and shard) must be provided. If I cannot contact the dimension's owner, the entry will be excluded.
    As stated previously, ALL shards are eligible for participation.

    Dates: Dimension entries must be open no later than July 25th, 2013. Judging will begin on July 26th, with the winners announced 01 August, 2013, to avoid conflicting with the Trion competition that runs July 03-09. Dimensions submitted after 25 July will not be accepted.

    To Enter: Post a forum entry under this thread, with at least one screenshot included. All entrants must provide the name of the character the dimension is listed under, the name of the dimension itself, and the shard it is located on. Contact information, if different, must also be provided (if I can't reach you, I can't give you a prize, right?). For those works that are recommended or commissioned, contact information must be given for the owners.

    Judging criteria: This competition does not depend upon the current in-game system. Dimensions submitted for entry may either be old favorites, or new creations. And and all judges will be looking at the following:

    Does it fit the theme? A cozy little inn does not necessarily fit the theme, but a theater with the lights banked as if during a showing does.

    Aesthetic quality and appeal. Is your Vegas style wedding chapel crammed into one tiny corner of your dimension, or is it part of a bigger picture that creates a wonderful atmosphere?

    Flow and construction: Can I run along the rails of your roller coaster without falling or snagging? (And I do run along the rails, every time I find a roller coaster, I can't help it) Does the dimension progress in a logical order, or is it jumbled and confused?

    Good luck to all who enter!

    Know an addict that this contest would fit to a T, but who doesn't read the forums? Send them this way, perhaps we can change their mind!

    One criteria you haven't mentioned is whether or not you as a person have seen the dimension in question before. It seems that when Radish has held contests she didn't want to have looked before judging started.

    I wonder if this could be stickied? At least for the duration of the contest since there is so much activity on this forum now.

    Sticky? Meh. I'll bump this thread like a washer against a dryer.

    I do not have this stipulation. I tour so much that if someone submits an older dimension, I've probably already seen it. If I included that stipulation, that would disqualify three-fourths of any entry that existed before 2.3.

    Hope this clarifies things, and I'm sorry for leaving this out, thank you for reminding me!

    Does Shoreward Island fall into the Large category? It has the most room for what I'm building. This will be my greatest engineering feat to date LOL (well for me, don't you all go crazy and imagine stuff now... hahahaha) No, I'm not building some Harbor or the Lighthouse of Alexandria... hey, now there's an idea!

    The only place I currently have that even comes close to fitting the description would be Serenity Bay, but I'm not sure if it fits enough to be included. The lighthouse has some of the trappings of a home, but the rest of it is basically a harbor.

    I'd like to enter my dimension: Dormant Core

    Name of Dimension: Not so Dormant Core
    Name of Character in game: Miss illuzion
    Name of server: Greybriar

    I have many "public" places in my dimension including a Church overlooking the core, a large shrine/prayer area in the upper core, a crystal cave prayer area, a small shrine overlooking the entrance area, and more.

    Church overlooking the core:


    Upper Shrine area:

    @ Agrona: Shoreward Island, due to the overall item count (it can go up to 2000) does fall into the large category.

    @Zyonyx: One would expect the lighthouse keeper to dwell in the lighthouse. A harbor where ships come to resupply, sailors come for shore leave, is a good example of a public space.

    @ Missilluzion: Thank you for your submission!

    Since you asked, I'll let you enter this competition with it being entered in another. If it wins that other contest, however, this one will be disqualified, because we should share the wealth.

    It doesn't have to be a park/park theme. A public space. There are a LOT of areas that fall under the theme of public spaces. If yours is a biker bar (or whatever it may be, related to bikes), so be it.

    Your dimension must be public by the 25th. Judging starts July 26th. If your dimension is already open, that's great, too. Entries will not be looked at early, to avoid any perception of unfairness or bias.

    I hope this answers your questions!
