    So after Rares Fest id like to run another UO Stratics Chesapeake contest....and I would like to get feedback from all of you on what type of contests you would like. If you have any ideas please feel free to share them.
     
  2. Since spring will be right around the corner, how bout a Down On the Farm house deco contest? I'm sure with all the new grapevines, hedges, variety of vegetables and SA baskets it would be great for the creative types(not me).

    Something that is not a decoration/housing contest. Seriously. Anything other than that.

    Best screenshot with *NO* house on the screen, best real-life Ultima reenactment, funniest recorded movie (fraps), make a song from Ultima, just DEAR CTHULHU NOT ANOTHER DECO/HOUSING CONTEST!

    House deco contests I kinda leave to the Homes and Castles section but something with spring is a good idea. What about Spring backpack art? Not sure how many people have done this but you put items into a backpack and basically decorate it, snap a picture and send it in.

    Best screen shot... I like that as well.

    High Seas oriented chain events.... like best Epic Ship Battle picture?

    Best idea for a new "rare". Include item description, what it should drop from, what it does (if anything).

    Rare: a GM. It drops from everything, but it has a 1/1,000,000,000 chance to drop. Just like ze goggles, IT DOES NOTHING!

    Backpack art contest are fun. Of course it would need a theme. I won one of these backpack art contests on Siege once. It was winter orientated.

    For us here for spring, one can run a backpack art contest that involves spring things in backpack art or shammrocks etc. I mean I can see it a backpack art shammrock made of glistening green nox crystals etc. or nightshade and pearl. :) *just an idea*

    Another spring idea although contests could be worked INTO such an event, we did it over there 2x stpatty spring celtic festivals, ie drinkin :) and a huge scavenger hunt. The one was spring orientated and the other was a scavenger hunt fetchin *GREEN THINGS* !

    Contests could be worked into a spring scavenger hunt making it even a week long series of events or contests !

    *we used to have Moonglow Spring Festival here ya know ? * :)

    Remember all those events ?

    I Won a book writing contest here...about a poor woman whom mourned by Blackthorns grave and her tears made...shammrocks and spring flowers appear via some magical green elves. Someone else wrote a book too, called GOLD over the Rainbow or something...think his name was Winfield. :)

    THINK SPRING thing festivals celtic or st. patty or just spring greenery, think leprecuns and bunnies and scavenger hunts and bring back old stuff that was fun from Moonglow festival...maybe I get to use my chr. MOONGLOWFESTIVAL again to make sashes for everyone FREE EVEN ! lol

    PS one could also include a lost art form...green thorns and vorpel bunny bashing events/contests wearin o the green even...bod cloth that dark green, folks providing the cloth, making everyone GREEN...and folks providing thorns and everyone gets to bash bunnies. Then have some random drawing for winning prizes of ...GREEN SPRINGY things ...like a spring token. Some folks older even newer maybe never/got had those spring deco. tokens. They could be nice prizes to get said tokens after shard wide bunny bashing via green thorns !
