    ok i have 3 questions here.. so here goes.

    1. do we have to decorate the dorm room with respect to past, present AND future? or we have to choose any one of those timelines?

    2. do we have to write the 2 paragraphs in different word doccuments or in the same one?

    3 are the 2 paragraphs we have to write is more like a short story in which the 1st paragraph explains how u relating your story to time travel? ( like how it all began and why i am time travelling etc )

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1. You can choose any of those. Judges choices will be; one for past, one for present and one for future though.

      2. No you can just write it in the email, notepad or wordpad if you like. I know I will have younger players entering. Main thing to think about it to make sure both tells the judges about your dorm and items, as per rules.

      3 That would be up to you on the first paragraph. If you want a short story paragraph that works too. Paragraph 2 Judges need to know how you worked your 5 items into your theme.

  11. Paige, another question...do you want us to crop the icons out of our picture? (such as health and mana) or is there another way to make the go away?

    ReplyDelete

    1. You can crop your image to remove your back ground and such. But I would rather you keep icons. Because if your removed them you wont be able to show yourself interacting with that mean item.

  12. Paige DreamcloudJuly 9, 2012 at 4:10 PM

    When you say show us interacting does that mean show the press x prompt or take the photo after you press x?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What that means is showing that you can either press x. if you are using interactive items such as music player you must show the screen where you are adding music. How ever you interactive with item is what you need to show.

    2. Paige DreamcloudJuly 10, 2012 at 6:54 AM

    Is Time Travel like the name of a show or something (I was thinking kind of Dr. Who-ish) or do you mean time travel in general?
    Also, should the room represent some time and place in history, or the act of time traveling?
    I also assume the plant doesn't count as the interactive item, right?
    And can I remove the icons from the screen for the two screenshots that don't involve the interactive item (you know, the ctrl+g method)?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Time travel is the theme for this contest. You can make any time travel theme you wish. Must be past , present or future.
      Plant will not count as interactive item.
      You may not remove icons when you show your wizard interacting with item it would be remove how you are interacting with it. You may remove icons on the other shots , yes.

  59. I just read the new category - yuletide.
    I am confused. Does that mean there are 2 different contest? If we submit a dorm, does it automatically enter the travel AND yuletide contest? Do we have to submit twice with different paragraphs? Can we enter the same dorm for travel and yuletide?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yes, it is kind of like a contest within a contest. You will need to enter the yuletide with Christmas in July theme separate.

  63. Hi paige how will you announce the winners like there name i know you will announce it on the page, but like how are you going to use the names? On the e-mail do we have to include anything about our wizard? And is it required for us to show on the screen shots the 5 items? and can I use a garden Gnome as a red item? Also for the interactive item like a bobble head do we have to show you the head bobbling or the sign that says press x or click to bobble. Also can we just press F12 for the screenshot that seems to work for me

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I will create a winners post here on my blog with the winning dorm rooms. No real names I want your wizard name yes, as per rules.

      It will sure help the judges if they can see your items.

      Garden gnome yup that is red :D press x would be great for those types of interactive items.

      F12 works as your prt/scr?

    Hi Paige, i have a quick question.
    When i read the rules, I saw " No more than 3 screenshots " and I was wondering that if you need no more than 3 screenshots and there are 5 different thing you need us to take a pic of, can I maybe have 2 things in one screenshot?
    For me I would have 2 of the 5 things in one, then 2 more of the 5 things, then 1 with me interacting with something.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No more than 3 screenshots. One of which has to be of you interacting with your item.

      Get the best views you can of your dorm with the items in it. Yes you can have more than one of the 5 items in each of the screenshots

      Delete
  68. Sorry if this is really stupid, but, can you enter both contests, yuletide AND time-travel on the same character? Like, decorate your dorm for time-travel, take screen shots, and send email, then redecorate your dorm for the yuletide contest? Btw, are you the judge?

    1. Yes. If you enter the time travel theme you may enter the yuletide too.

  69. Hey Paige, does a fiery reddish orangish color count as red? I'm using my sunbird pet in my dorm, and it'd be great if he could count as 'something red'. I'm not sure if he's yellow and red or yellow and fiery orange, though. Plz tell me if he counts, so I know what my five special things are. Thx!

    1. Sunbird from pet level 58 is yellow. Small fire bird like the 3 pip spell are red

    2. I typed the wrong name, my pet is actually called firewing. It's definitely not pet lvl 58, so I guess it's the red one. Thx a lot!

  75. Hiya! Well my plant is being stubborn on Time Travel entry so I decided to give the Yuletide in July a go on my death char while I'm waiting. I'm sure this is going to be a silly question but...I was wondering where you can get the holiday wallpapers. They weren't with Felix, that I saw, and definitely not in the crown shop. My guess is, I'm going to have a very hard time finding one xD

  84. Hi Ms MoonShade. What a lovely contest you are running. Bet you are ready to pull your hair out.

    I was reading and you said that the teleporter was not interactive or could not be used. But if you are not leaving you room can you not use it as interactive.... Don't want to give it away so just asking.

    1. Yes. But you have to show the screen where you are marking in your dorm room. You cannot use it if you leave your dorm.
