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.

Let's thank him!

ImperialShadows

A while ago our good member ImperialShadows decided it was time someone took control of the Classic-Pirates.com newsletter and volunteered to become its editor. So now, it's time to praise him for all the hard work he has put into bringing us that wonderful publication every month!

Congratulate ImperialShadows here.

Update: Since this story was originally posted, the newsletter program has been discontinued, replaced by the blog you are now reading. ImperialShadows, however, has continued his news duties in the form of posting here and carrying over the graphics for the blog itself from the former site.
