  17. Caleb SilverFlameJuly 11, 2011 at 7:45 AM

    Just to be clear, can I have things outside the walls, but it won't be walkable space? For example can I hang 80% of a fountain outside the dorm room showing just a bare 20%?

    ReplyDelete
  18. i can use notepad or anything to write my paragraph? because i need buy Microsoft work :(

    ReplyDelete
  19. john lifehunter You can just write your 2 paragraphs in the entry email if you like or on notepad.

    Caleb SilverFlame The only things that is allowed to be seen is the inside of the dorm. If you have to go outside the walls to take a screenshot that is not allowed. Fountains where you float them half way into walls are ok because you are still only showing what is inside the dorm room. You may go as high as you like but you must stay inside the dorm room area for images.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I accedently forgot to post my name, can I reply and say it?

    ReplyDelete
  21. If one of your pictures doesn't have your wizard in it dose it make that picture disqualified or the whole entrie disqualified?

  22. Question 1: send a message with your wizard name
    Question 2: as long as your in the first screen shot and the 2nd picture is of the same room , yeah that is ok.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I forgot to send my name aswell but I read 1 and 2 and luckily I'm in screenshots. But just sending 2 Paragraphs from the req info. And 2 screenshots of good images and yourself to you we get entered yes? :D

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  25. Please remember:
    Along with the screenshots, you must have your 2 paragraphs details in rules and your wizard name.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Question: Instead of the crowns, can the winner be given a sub instead? I am sorry prizes are as stated. Grand prize is the gift card and it can either be used for crowns or sub as any gift card works.

And where i have to write paragraphs? In message or attach text file? And does it matter if peoples will do some grammar or other mistakes as long as it is understandable? Thank you.

    Answer:
    Each para cannot be more than 5 lines long, not sentences. You can make them 2 lines if you like but cannot be more than 5 lines. You can write it in the message or in text file. Don't worry grammar is a part but not a big issue. Judges are looking for what you say about your dorm.

    Does the pet dragon have to roam in the dorm or we can have him with us like a pet? I bought a dragon and i painted him yellow and light blue but on pictures that i took his colors look darker.I hope that is not a disqualifying thing, cause there is nothing i can do about that. Greetings from Iridian Icecaster :)

    Answer: as long as he is in the room and you talk about him in 2nd paragraph ,as pet rules. All entries are judged fairly. Judges understand that some pictures might vary from graphic cards.

  43. Hey Paige when you say that stay within the dorm space does that mean we can only use regular dorms or does it mean we can have a big space room and just stay within that room ? and also do we have to craft the bucket or are we allowed to buy it at the bazarr?

    Answer:
    Ravenwood school dorm room. You must stay within the space. Yes you can go all the way to the ceiling. You must stay inside it. Floating an item to look like it is part of that wall is ok but you must show only the inside of your dorm room.

    Answer:
    Yes. 5. Pet Dragon ( Wizard City must be yellow with Light blue) in color

  53. Can we hide the column behind something else

    ReplyDelete
  54. Can we hide the column behind something else
    Answer: It should be seen in one of the 2 images.
    In 2nd paragraph you have to talk about it so would defeat the purpose of using the item if you just hid it.

    Where do you get the housing crafting station?
    Answer: Bazaar or Furniture housing shops starting at Krokotopia

    When you take the screen shot of your dorm with your wizard, does it matter where your wizard is or facing? or it doesn't matter as long as your wizard is in the picture?

    Answer: No does not matter which way your wizard is facing. Just let the judges see your dorm. If you want to angle your camera view see you see your wizard but more of the dorm that that okay too.

    Answer: On your keyboard there is a key Prt/Scr This will take a screenshot of your wizard101 game screen. Now go to documents and look for a file called Wizard101. Inside that file are all the images you ever took while playing.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I think that lines is confusing and some may think it means sentences. that's what happened to me since most of the time paragraphs are measured by sentences. could you be understanding to the people who thought it meant sentences? it isn't stated in the rules to be lines and not sentences. sorry, i just worked really hard and i would hate to get out for a little mix-up. thanks

    ReplyDelete
  98. 4. Something green (floor ,walls or seeding will not count as this item).It can be anything else you want it to be.

    ( No more than 5 lines will be allowed for each paragraph. You may add a title.)

    If it only takes you one line that is ok. 5 lines is like lines on paper.

  102. Dear Paige, I'm almost done with my Entry, but I was confused as to what you meant by "Lines", do you mean Sentences, Lines on the E-Mail Screen, Lines on Word, ect. Want to make sure I get in as much as possible, but I don't want to disqualify myself!

    Thanks Much!

    I have been watching the bazaar and I have seen them in there. You may also use a friends crafting station.
    I tested this and you only have to finish Wizard City crafting quests and you can craft this bucket.

  131. Hello Paige, I need to ask you a question. My friend Valkoor Darkwraith on Wizard101 has an amazing rig bridge that I told him I would see if you would come to. He would be so happy if you came to see it. He has had a rough few days, and both of us would be so happy if you came. If you want to come, Tuesday, July 20 would be perfect, at 4:00 Eastern time, realm Wu, area one. Look for Evan Liontamer.

    Thanks for reading!

    Dear Paige, I've read all comments now and the rules too but my dorm is laid out in such a way that to fully understand what's going on i would have to take 3 snapshots. I made a sort of half-and-half dorm with like 2 segments in it and i want to show 1 pic of 1 side, 1 pic of the other, and 1 pic of the whole dorm. Can I please do this, if not I'll try to find a way but it'll be very hard. :( Oh well... I hope i can send 3.
    You're awesome for doing this Paige!!!!! :D
