Thumbs up Competition Time

-------------------------------
Competition Time
-------------------------------

Everyone likes competitions where you can win stuff don't they? Good, in that case....

Everyone's familiar with the mundanely titled "Minecraft for Dummies..." post I started. Well to coincide with the "EOI for The Tipster" we're kicking off a competition for a new name for the hints, tips, etc sticky.

How to Enter:

Post in this thread (or pm Thermal Ions) with your suggested Name (and optional title graphic incorporating the name) for the new "Hints, Tips, etc" sticky.

Competition Rules:

  1. Open to all TOG members, and players on the TOG Minecraft Server (including our junior players, via their parents as necessary)
  2. You may enter as many times as you like
  3. Entries may be posted here in this thread or pm'ed to Thermal Ions
  4. Entries must be suitable for a thread title (i.e. text), but may also take the form of a graphical image incorporating the text which could be used at the top of the first post.
  5. A short-list of finalists will be compiled by myself, and anyone else who hasn't entered that I can con into it. You've been warned, if you enter you get out of the short-listing job.
  6. The finalists will be posted up for people to vote on. Voting open to all those per #1. Kids without forum access can get their parents to pm me with their vote and I'll manually add it in. You can vote for your own submission.
  7. Assuming "The Tipster" doesn't come up with some weird and wonderful approach which makes it null and void, the winning entry will be used as the new sticky name / image.
  8. Rules subject to change at the discretion of the DC (I've probably missed / stuffed up something here)

Closing Date:


In case people want to incorporate the name of "The Tipster" into their submission, the competition will close in just over 2 weeks - 26th November 2010 (hopefully about 1 week after "The Tipster" is selected).

Yeah, but what is the prize?

A copy of Minecraft for yourself or to give to a friend
(consider the new server access rules in regards to playing on our server however - they will still apply to the winner/friend).

If one of the kids wins, then I'll throw in something of small value for them too (worked out with the relative parent/s).
