NEW – Creative Critic Mini-Contest

Thursday, November 20th, 2008

Of all the participants of the Pillage the Village Contest the Creative Critics have the most arduous task - providing feedback for as many entries as they possibly can.  This is no doubt exhausting after all these weeks so we want to give the Creative Critics a little something extra...

Another Prize!

The first entrant to write 20 post of feedback (has to be a solid paragraph) before Friday 28th of November will win a 6257 Castaway's Raft.

Entering in the Mini-Contest also has strategical benefits:

  2. Feedback left in the Mini-Contest WILL BE counted towards the final Creative Critic prizes.  So make the feedback good!

New Pillage The Village Subforum!

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

The Pillage The Village contest has become such a tremendous success that Lord Admiral Phes has decided to give it its own Subforum!

Click here to go to the new Pillage the Village subforum

Everything that has to do with the PTV contest can be found here from now on!

The previous titles and descriptions of the entry threads were a complete menagerie and it was looking very disorderly. Therefore Mister Phes painstakingly retitled and described all the entry threads on the first page using the same convention. He will do so for the entry threads on the other pages as well as they get bumped.

Mister Phes also made clear the rules about how the new PTV contest entry threads should be titled:

  • The thread title should be the title of the MOC, you may include "WIP" or "FINAL" but nothing else.
  • The thread description (the one beneath the title) should contain "Pillage the Village Contest - " then either "Large" , "Medium" or "Small" depending on the division.
