So now you can post your MOCs and MODs in this new subforum and all other pirate discussion can be made in the main pirate forum. So what are you waiting for?

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.

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