JR Craft's Best Home - closed!


Flaw

1. What is the contest about?

On JR Craft, we come across a lot of amazing homes that get no recognition from the other citizens whatsoever. With this contest, we wish to put your home in to compete with the others.

2. Can I build a new home just for this contest?

This is not a building competition, per se, where you are given a dimension limit, asked to build on a theme, or such. So can you build a new home? The answer would be yes and no. Yes, if you plan to stay in that house for a long period of time. No, if you plan to abandon it after this contest is over.

If a newly built house does win, we will keep a check to see if it used afterwards. If not, you will be disqualified and your prize would be taken away.

3. Can I at least make changes to my current home?

Yes, feel free to give your home a finishing touch, if you'd like.

4. Where do I submit my entry? How long do I have?

You have to submit your entry Please follow the guidelines or you will be disqualified. The contest will be open for 7 days, from 12 June to 18 June.

5. When will the results be announced? Who will vote/judge the homes?

The results will be announced after a minimum of 5 days. However, there is no certain date. The voters need time and we can't be sure how long it would take for everyone to vote.

The entire staff, including Helpers, will vote for their three most liked homes. Apart from staff, Gold members will also have the opportunity to cast a vote. We may take Citizen+ on board as well. Keep checking here for an update (will be added as an edit) as to whether C+ are included or not.

6. What are the prizes?

The prizes are yet to be decided. We will update you with the rewards very soon. Stay tuned!

Have fun! :D

Mechris, please read the 4th point again and post where required.

Anyway, good luck everyone :)

If citizen+ is judging will we still be able to enter?

Probably yes. Still discussing with staff.

Are we allowed to be in the creative world to build this?

Are you ready to make yourself a home in Creative? or would you rather have it in Survival? Make it wherever you want to, but remember the bottom line: you must use it even after the contest is over. It has to be your main home, not an abandoned house.

When I heard that the theme was houses, it really brought my hopes up, thinking I could build an amazing one in the creative world, but no :( I dont like this theme, I'm not entering. (consider yourselves lucky :P)

how do you put in a screen shot? and should it be interior as well as exterior?

On the appropriate thread that Flaw mention (), do not use the quick reply at the bottom of the page. At the top of the page, above the first post towards the right side, there is a button labeled something like 'Use Advanced Editor', which is what you want to click.

Now when you post your entry, you can use the attachment upload (below the field for you to type up your post) to upload attachments, and if you click the link on the picture once you've uploaded it that says something like 'Place In Post', it will show a thumbnail where your cursor is in the text of your post.

Then people can click on the thumbnail to get the full sized picture. :)

Hope this helped!

I may enter, I may not. I'm not liking my castle anymore, and I made a mistake of letting people build houses in front of my castle gates, and now I've got a lot of abandoned houses. Except for uUShyGuyUu. He was very active (still is too) and not only told me he was leaving, but gave me ownership of the house's region so that I could give it away to someone else.

If I do decide to enter (it's about 50/50 right now), it would be strictly for fun, and I would not be able to guarantee it would be done on time for the contest. However, I would allow it to be judged on an as-is basis, and I would just finish on my own pace. Furthermore if I do enter (and it isn't already disallowed), I will not be casting a vote.

Entering and then voting just doesn't sound right to me. If I don't enter I will vote, though.

And kudos, Flaw! Epic idea for a contest! :D

Screenshots are stored in ..appdata/roaming/.minecraft/screenshots . Once you locate that, you will need to upload them here using the button below the text entry window. They will be pasted in at the cursor location.

I've thought about it, and (mainly due to the amount I've been on/not been on the server so far this week) I'm not going to enter. I do want a new house, but I want to plan it out and take my time building it. :)

So... Do we screenshot the inside too? Or just the outside?

Or could I record a video of the inside and out and post that?

Two screenshots, which ever way you like :)

Although like you said, both inside and out would be better!

And kudos, Flaw! Epic idea for a contest! :D

It's rstoy's idea :P
