    Well the snow statues on WBB Origin are now pink, for Valentine's Day I assume, but we still have a fully Christmas deco'ed Luna Bank.

    Trivia:
    One of the two "Christmas" songs that prominently feature a winter ride in a sleigh (can't remember if it was "Sleigh Ride" or "Jingle Bells") was originally written as a Valentine's Day love song, that got co-opted by carolers.

    Which is really funny, because most places that get snow in the Northern Hemisphere get FAR more snow in February, than the December two months earlier (though this year might be an exception).

    *shrugs* no offense taken, the design is loosely based off my design.

    ... and it is a garden. Is what it's supposed to be.

    The garden looks good SM. I like the moongate. Thanks for your efforts.

    The santa was good, for what you have to work with.

    Another problem with the LS design is that you cannot enter the gate that is on the Yew Tree, I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a moongate or if it is there to tele you to the roof of the bank but regardless there should be a teleporter to get on the roof and the gate on the Yew Tree should be removed.

    and yes, there are 3 icicles left

    That was intentioned, not sure why it wasn't implemented.
    You have to realized, most shards have the banks half-implemented.

    I think it looks nice, Stupid Miner. Much less busy than some of the others as well. Did you do an interior design also or just the exterior?

    Heh, i was using MS Paint and got fed up, and didn't do the inside.
    Besides, what would I do for the interior? Have to keep it a functional bank after all.
    It's supposed to be as if the WBB staff decided to put a garden outside to attract business away from Luna.

    But you can enter the gate on the roof either on the roof or from the ground inside the bank. Not bad.

    Really? That's interesting. I guess moongates like Shrines don't have a z-axis limit.

    so the gate should be on the ground somewhere, not on the roof

    I understand you made the design and such, but it was their job to implement it, why did they implement it in such a shoddy way?
