Can a mod make a formal news announcement on the website's front page for this?

Thanks!

Turns out I just needed to move the topic to one of the news sections. Kinda takes up quite a bit of room on the home page though, so I'll probably move it back later today and create a new topic for the home page that links back here.

I was updating the about page and completely forgot about the three other annual contests we were supposed to run, and their associated forum ranks. What should we do with those? (I'm rusty on the thread here.) Could the Dream Splash simply be the one annual event, with those forum ranks repurposed to serve some of the awards for different mediums?

Edit: Forgot I had those screenshots on there. God, I miss this layout:



Something about it was so mind-blowingly advanced for 2005. The format was really restrictive (and would've looked terrifyingly bad on today's resolutions), but damn, that look was white-hot.

Having a nostalgia-trip, Z?

In all honesty, I don't think we have enough activity to support multiple competitions. I think one annually (or biannually if necessary) is sufficient, and Dream Splash sort of fit that bill. We can also change rules as we go.

For example, for this Dream Splash I expanded the categories and awarded titles list so we have full coverage of categories and incentive.

Just my two cents.

Two things I'd like to clarify.

1) What time zone is the end date in?

2) Are there any issues with editing an entry prior to the submission deadline?

I'll have an entry ready in the next few days, but it may require some tweaking before the end of the contest.

Uh, Z'ha'dum central standard?

In all seriousness, I hadn't really considered it. I'm not going to be a dick about it, so let's just say the latest possible 5/1 time zone there is...?

Not at all. Hell, you want to post a WIP and get feedback, it's all fair game. Just make sure the first post is edited to hold the final product for ease of viewing/considerations/etc.

I figured that was the case.

My entry may be final, but I may have updates.
