    I recently came back & as such am still trying to get cought up on whats going on so please forgive me if there is already something going on.. If not.. Well I hope to find people who'd be intrested in taking part in something like this.. :D:D

    I propose having starting a Housing Design Festival to be done once every few months.. ie.. Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter.

    *Open to players on all shards/all facets
    *Contestants are given a date, ie: May 15th with which all entries must be submitted & done.
    []Entries Include:
    ~Shard/Facet
    ~Location/Coordinates
    ~Name of Home & Owner
    ~Contact Info
    ~Short Description Of The Theme/Design (Less than 50 words)
    *During the course of the following week, a panel of judges (3-5) go around and tour all the entries based on a few different criteria. (Originality, Design/Layout, Decoration/Theme, etc)
    *At the end of the week a get together/festival is held where there will would be a meet and greet, trivia, door gifts & prizes (Mum would would HAVE to bring cookies.. :D) & then we would announce the winners. (Those unable to attend the get together would be contacted and could pickup their prize at a later date. (Prizes would be arranged to be picked up on players perfered shard)

    So what do y'all think??

    We just did a winter themed contest that ran the month of january..
    We didn't really get a huge response for it though.
    6 Players won prizes out of a list of items off the UO Game Codes store including house teleporters.

    There will be another contest when things get settled.. I don't know when that will end up being.


    I more then encourage you to also run contests though, It's always fun to see the different homes that get submitted.

    Its not like the olden days. People dont want to be bothered winning gold and other fun prizes and you end up more frustrated then not. Our connest was in the summer of 2010. Never again.

    If I had more time, I would love to run more contests on UOHomeDecor. As it is, I'm still porting things over and redoing the site and no spare time to handle a contest at this time...however if someone wanted to work with me to run one, i'd be all for it.
