PARTICIPANTS MUST SUBMIT THEIR WORK TO Scarlet Ayleid BY 15 September 2013 VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE

Please use the template below for your Private Message title
Code:
Official OtLand Mapping Competition (v1->3) - Forum Name
V1->3 Indicates that you may only submit up to 3 times.

  • 1 - Original submission
  • 2 - Re-submit
  • 3 - Final submit, no changes allowed after this
This month's theme, "Seasons - Passage of time"!



I'll explain the theme, we want people to map 1 area only, but then in each different screenshot, we want to see how that area changes between Spring, Summer, Autumn (Fall) and Winter. In the image I posted above, its the same tree under different seasons, I only used a tree as the example to make it clear, but you can do any kind of area you want, urban, forest, mountain, beach, etc..


Good luck and have fun

It feels like the general activity of the forum has decreased since the change to XenForo.. :/
Maybe people have a hard time navigating around, especially to sub-boards

I don't see why people would have a hard time navigating the forums. Everything is in the same spot, it just looks different.

Yes, but it's either that or people have left the mapping boards entirely.. :/
nearly nothing new being posted. Compare this thread to the thread last month, a lot more activity then.

Only three people that are going to be trying it so far, which is surprising because it's a moderately good subject. I've also noticed that there has been significant less activity in the mapping section, it's pretty saddening.

Usually we get tons of sign ups, but then half the people don't submit, so having fewer submissions is actually a more accurate number of how many submissions we're getting

mmmmm unfair to pin it on XenForo, not many would leave jus because the forum is a different color =P

has much more to do with school just now starting (along with general mapping slowly dying)

It's a semi big amount of work for this contest. So some people may not have time for it, I may not end up submitting but I'm trying my best to finish it, I have nearly finished my summer piece.

I am hoping I have not lost my piece during my re-installation of my OS.
