    UPDATE: Due to specific requirements needed to make planned features work, we have changed the way voting/judging will work. Staff members will be choosing the best haunted house that fits our needs. We hope you understand that this change was made to allow another event to take place. Thank you.

    Description
    We are looking to spice up our Halloween Hub and you can help! Halloween is one of the scariest times of the year and we are looking for someone to design and build a haunted house that will scare us out of our shoes!

    Rules/Guidelines
    • Aesthetics are the most important part! An entered house with very little detail will not be taken seriously and may be disqualified.
    • You can build and enter the house on any plot you have access to, as long as you personally build it.
    • Any secret features must be marked (such as redstone secret walls) as they will most likely be replaced by custom plugins.
    • House MUST fit in a 23x19 area. You can view the area in the Hub.
    Friends
    If you want to have your friends help, that's awesome! However, the person who submitted the contest entry is the one who will receive the reward.
    Rewards
    • Grand prize: $30,000 (build located in the Halloween Hub)
    • Second place: $20,000
    • Third place: $10,000
    • All accepted entries: $250
    Submission
    Stand at the front of your house and type /contest submit. From there you will be prompted to agree to the rules and submit your entry. Entries must be submitted by October 15, 2016 at 11:59pm (EDT).



    Judging
    Judging will begin on October 16, 2016, located on the forums, and will close on October 22, 2016 at 11:59pm (EDT). Winners will be announced on October 23, 2016.

    Quick clarifications/questions..

    1. I assume the default mine craft texture pack is preferred for the house to be build in?
    2. Which dimension is the front of the house, the 19 block side or the 23 block side?
    3. What is the max heigth of the house allowed?

    You can use any texture pack, but screenshots of your build to be voted on will be in default.
    Front of the house is 23.
    Max height.... Let's say 60?

    Thats grand so. I use Chromahills (and its back and brown stained glass would look cool for Halloween), but default it is!
    23 front, good to know... and wasn't thinking of going to 60 high, but also good to know... might be good to make the bottom floor a few blocks higher then base level (to hide redstone if any interesting ideas hit me!) :p

    Keep in mind that and redstone features will most likely be replaced with plugins to work more efficiently.

    What's plugins? And do it absolutely have to be a house?

    Don't worry about the plugin side of things and yes, has to be a house.

    Good luck!

    I never build one before too and I'm more a redstoner, but I rarely can do competitions like that. And I have some ideas in mind... Just hope that I have enough space on my plot.

    Submitting it holds your spot in the contest list. You can submit it and continue working on it, but if you submit a half-done house, the submission will be rejected.

    Sorry, but the last post doesn't make sense to me!... ?... We can submit our entry and continue working on it... but an unfinished submission will be rejected! ... is that not a contradiction?

    ItsmeJoey already said that we can only submit our build at October 15 before noon. It is all that simple. You can only present your work when you finished it. Do you give half-done homework? Same here. Hope this helped

    It's a long time since i submitted homework. :cool: That said, I've never submitted any half-done. :D

    For fear of going off-topic, and at the same time, sound like I'm dishing another player (apologies in advance:oops: ), Chaomatic's last post is not helpful at all!:rolleyes: ... As submitting 'half-done' homework is exactly joshwenke seems to be suggesting!

    ...All that said, mine will be finished today, so I'll just submit it then. :p

    It's not to be sorry or not, Ruslana (cool name btw). I can't see my errors very well, so feel free to correct me, unless that it is for bothering me. I re-took a look carefully and saw that I misunderstood.
    You're familiar to me. Seem I saw you somewhere else...o_O

    You're taking the "half done" too literal. It's mainly saying, don't submit your build and then keep working on it. If we come to approve your build and see that you're still working on it, we will consider it "half done" and reject it. We give you a long deadline for a reason, I suggest that you take all the time you need.

    Yes, you build it on a plot in Creative. If you read the post completely you'd see that you type /contest submit, when finished ;).
