Best Halloween Ever 2010! (Contest)
 
Note: There seems to be some consternation over this concept. Perhaps I can explain it with a simple analogy. In December 1898, Gaston de Chasseloup-Laubat was the fastest driver in the world at 39.2 mph. In 1997, Andy Green became the fastest at 760.3 mph. Gaston was the fastest, Andy is the fastest. Any superlative term implies "up to now" automatically. Things change. If it were 1898, Gaston would be "the fastest". That is no longer true. Therefore, in 2007, that Halloween was the Best. In 2008, that Halloween then became the best by surpassing it. In 2009, they were all blown away and we found a new Best. That will become no longer true on October 31st of this year. Prepare yourself.

IT IS TIME PEOPLE! Time for my favorite holiday of the year, and time to make it better than it's ever been before!

How can we make it the best ever? Well, we're having a contest to achieve that.

1 - To enter, present a surprise to your fellow Hamumians on Oct. 31st, 2010.

2 - I will award you somewhere between 1 and 200 Yerfbucks for your surprise. Do something incredibly amazing, and you can earn even more than 200. Thousands, really, though I don't know what you could possibly do to justify something like that.

3 - The amount awarded for your surprise is entirely at my discretion. It is based on three factors: How much effort I think you put into it, how much fun I think your surprise will bring to the community, and a special bonus on top for doing something really surprising and cool that I think people won't be expecting!

4 - This year, no asking me how much something will be worth! You can ask your fellow Hamumians who have entered in the past, they might have an idea. But remember to keep your surprise a surprise!

5 - No, entering a Halloween Horror world is definitely not a surprise (even if you normally don't!). Any Yerfbucks related to that are entirely separate. Please do an HH world though!

6 - Please keep surprises Halloween-themed, as this is supposed to be The Best *Halloween* Ever.

7 - Your surprise must be something good. Don't surprise us with one of those pictures that screams at you, or with hacking the website to be covered with profanity.

8 - I'll definitely help you out. If you need me to put something up on the website, or whatever kind of things I might be able to assist with, I am there. I don't have much spare time at all due to my work, but contact me well in advance and we can discuss what and how much I can do to help you. Don't ask me to program you something or draw or whatever, but I can host files and that kind of thing.

9 - Could this contest be any more vague? Possibly, so count your blessings. The whole idea is to surprise your fellow Hamumians with a treat (tricks accepted too, if they're not bad), so I can't tell you what to do. Dig deep into your creative brains and smoosh them out! Do something that nobody else would think of!

10 - Late entries NOT accepted! Get it done before Oct 31st, so you can wheel it out in time! It's the best HALLOWEEN ever, not All Saint's Day.

11 - However you go about delivering your surprise, send me an email on Oct 31st to make sure I note that you did it and can dish out the yerfbucks.

Questions? Surely you must have them. Post away! Just don't give away your surprise publicly!

I remember last year we made threads for each of our surprises, is there a policy on that this year?

Jamul 10-02-2010 11:05 AM

Re: Best Halloween Ever 2010! (Contest)
 
I don't think there ever was a policy... your goal is just to share your surprise with everyone on Halloween. Doing that with a forum thread is certainly a handy way!

Me and Kacper8000 are doing a joint entry, will we have to share the yerfbucks?

Re: Best Halloween Ever 2010! (Contest)
 
I'm not going to decide how to divide things up for you! The prize is based on the creation, so that's how many yerfbucks you'll get. You decide what to do with them!

Of corse you can! You can do anything about Hamumu. For example, Megadogs entry last year had all the trophies in it. You had to kill all the ponies!

Well, you're supposed to share it here on the forum! If you have some kind of file you need stored, you can contact me and I can store it on Hamumu.

Welcome to October the 31st!

Here's your (possibly early for most of you) present!

Tada! It's a SWC world!

Try it out, and if you are in the 31st too, then post as well!

Re: Best Halloween Ever 2010! (Contest)
 
share it as in: everybody gets to use it (or hear it, or see it, depending on what it is)

contact: to communicate. an email is a form of communication

no website is required, neither is publishing.

I sent a Supreme with Cheese world I made to the world tester guy today. That's my Halloween entry, though I don't know if it will be considered late. Unless you want me to send it to you?
