    AE is now officially happy... :)

    Don't worry Thande... I'll try and keep my quirkiness to a minimum in judging... :D

    Looks about right. Although to be fair in past contests we've never really turned down people who joined in late as it were. This initial sign up is more to figure out how many contests there should be. If a lot of people initially sign up we'd likely add on one or two more contests. As it stands right now I'm thinking six rounds with the seventh being the final.

    Good and I've already got an idea of the first map challenge.

    Ooo... :)

    I take it that the Ideas are PMed to the judges once you've considered them?

    When will Round 1 start?

    Yeah but if you or Thande have some ideas put them out there.

    Well as Scarecrow recommended we'll let this thread stick around till the 11th or so getting the word out and then I'll post a thread soon there after detailing the rules. That thread will also be for comments etc. Then a day or two after that I'll post the challenge. (Don't worry I'll PM you and Thande with the challenge a little before that so you guys can comment.)

    If we're still able to join in, then I'll like to do so. I only use MS Paint though.

    It is open to all and there is nothing wrong with MS Paint (as I've said I use it for all my maps).

    Oh thank god, I'd almost given up on AH.com, jonesing as I am for another Map Contest! Count me in, and this time I'll try not to disqualify myself for various, minor but fatal POD infractions like last round...

    All hail the Map Contest and the Conclave of Twilight!!*

    11th sounds good to me, unless there are any objections. We've got plenty of contestants.

    Well. if this is some sort of official list, I'd like to note that I am not, in fact, Lord Gratten. Although that does sound cool.

    No, but I hear Thande takes bribes in the form of old porno mags (assuming they are not sticky and are usable).


    :)


    There it is then. After the 11th I'll write up the rules thread.
