Runes can be dropped off at HOT Auctions with your item submissions every day at the regular item submission times of 12:30 CST and 7:30 CST!</P>

    We would love to have everyone meet at the West Britain bank after the contest and judging so we could do some caroling around Britannia. If you were around on LA last Christmas you will remember how much of a blast that was! ....so dust off those holiday outfits and lets have some fun! </P>

    If you have any questions, feel free to PM Vahne or Crimson Rose or ICQ Vahne at 144046399 and Crimson Rose at 93625144!</P> </font color></blockquote>

    Dont usually bump threads but this one has gotten lost in the crowd.
    Please please folks..we know it is a busy time for all but try hard to be available on the 29th for the contest. Would be so sad to not have many participants for this. Try as we do it is increasingly hard to get shard wide events to happen.
    This was one we thought would be something that everyone could do.
    So try hard to participate.
    Happy Holidays.
  7. I copied this from the HOT Auction site: "You may submit items, pick up checks, claim returned items, or flirt with Leia at our H.O.T. Auction house each day at 12:30 and 8:30pm central time." Are you going to be there tomorrow, Christmas Day?

    Still working on mine... been having too much fun celebrating but next couple days I'll get back to it lol [​IMG]
  10. Vahne must have added that to the web site. While I have nothing to do with the contest, I did agree to take runes that people want to drop off for the contest. Because of the holidays, I was not doing submittal times but will start back up on Monday at 12:30 pm cst so you can drop off runes for the contest then or at other submittal times after that.

    Pffft it's been like that since the website was created, why is it always me who gets blamed for such silly things?!?!

    Keep those entries coming folks! We have a few great designers that have already submitted, but you don't want to just let one of THEM win the 1 mil grand prize now do ya? Remember that you can backup the current design of your house if you are afraid that you won't be able to return it to your Pre-christmas design.

    For those who absolutely can not make the submission times for HOT, you may ICQ me at 144046399 and meet me to drop off a rune.
