I'll have to bail out on this comp due to time constraints. I've decided to animate the DCSS and NH tiles (yes, all of them) for a bit of a side project. 20 down, billions to go.

It's suprisingly easy. I just hope it turns out with the constraints of the paperdoll system.

Good luck to everyone in the competition :)

Just a reminder, there's about eight hours left until the deadline, so don't forget to turn in your entries!

Aww man, I've been doing IRL stuff the last couple of days so I totally forgot about this.  Should have done it early like the first contest.

Any idea how long it'll be until the results are posted? I'm looking forward to reading the submissions.

Actually, the results are already done but, given that the only people who entered are already Supporters and only two people actually submitted entries, I decided to postpone the next contest. That's not a very good excuse to keeping THIS contest indefinitely suspended; once I get to my home computer I will finish things up.

In the meantime, just as I did before, let me know if you are interested in entering another contest. There's not much point for me to keep this thing going unless there are a number of you willing (and motivated) enough to have things ready in time for each deadline. If a week is too little time, I can increase the submission period: let me know what I can do to make it possible for more people to give this competition a try.

I'm still willing to do it.  I'll make sure I remember the deadline next time.

I could get involved. Just finished up finals, and at the very least I could share things that would help newcomers.

I'm still up for this - I enjoy the writing/research.

Gamehunter, I don't mind writing something for Pain Elementals to complete the current set of topics (obviously not for competition purposes) - I just need a few pointers because I've never tried farming or any other advanced tactics against them. What I can do at the moment is a breakdown based on weapon damage/traits like Elephant did for the Demon topic last time. Unless, of course, you want to reuse it for another contest :-)

Thanks for posting those! Is is all right if we add sections to finished topics on the wiki? (I'm thinking particularly of pain elementals; like theduck, I'm not really qualified to write a comprehensive guide, but I can do better than nothing. :)

So what's the status of this project?
In a nutshell, still waiting for more people to be interested.

I apologize that I haven't gotten around to handing out prizes for the previous one but, given that the only people who entered have won previously, I figure there wasn't much of a rush to get it done.

Is is all right if we add sections to finished topics on the wiki? (I'm thinking particularly of pain elementals; like theduck, I'm not really qualified to write a comprehensive guide, but I can do better than nothing. :)
I have no qualms with players adding their own content to the Wiki at their own pace. The whole purpose of this contest is to get people motivated to actually write, but if you feel like you can contribute regardless then I am wholeheartedly okay with your own attempts.

I'd be interested in the contest!  I haven't been on this site much and haven't played the game much lately because I've been busy, but I'll put in an entry or two if you want to start up again.
