Sorry! I ran away for the weekend but I see you've found a site to host your picture- which is good, because the dropbox link wasn't working! Thank you for working it out!

Sure thing! Any hosting site is fine as long as it doesn't require special passwords, registration, logging in etc - for the general public to view it.

Billions of blue blistering barnacles! I just looked on jobs of others to see how they are done, but I saw some have pretty much idea like my! And ones even named alarm clock too! I hope you dont think im stealing the idea, because i started to think the idea almost as the event started, but i was too lazy to start painting it xD, and i even talked to Apollo.

If you've got the required 3 purchasable furniture items, can you also use a non-purchasable item?

Like the big homun in a jar or something?

lol!

The contest doesn't close for another 24 hours.

Only then can the deliberations begin to decide the winners...

Judging can take several days, to weeks to even months... Depending on the entries, the prizes and a whole lot of other factors!

Patience...

OKAY everyone! I got a little sucked into the TV for a minute, so closing was a few minutes late, but this event has officially ended and I'll be moving it on to the judges now! Please allow us a couple of weeks to review these incredible entries! Of course as soon as I know, I will post! (And believe me, I get just as excited with anticipation as everyone else does!)

Thank you everyone who entered!

Thanks Dexla for another awesome-tastic event!


I would like to apologize for the size of my original image, I'm still getting use to my drawing programing and finding out which sizes translates on the web as waaay too big!


*Also, no animals were seriously hurt in the making of my drawing



Cheers!

I can't tell you all how impressed I was with each and every entry! When I first asked Apollo if I could run this event, I worried that no one would understand the idea behind Rube Goldberg machines, much less how to incorporate them into our piratey lives, but day after day, your creative ideas came pouring in and I stared at each one and made little joyous squeals. Be proud! You are an impressive bunch of scallywags!

Many thanks to the super speedy judges! I couldn't do this without them. My personal thanks to Apollo for allowing me to run this event, and for all his support, both technical and moral!

Without complicating the post you've all been waiting for...

Honorable mentions winning a ruby (red) starfish:
Hollowgrace of Hunter
Ecastasy of Cobalt
Greylady of Malachite
Robroy of Opal
Asphyxiated of Cobalt

Additional honorable mentions winning a gold starfish:
Tilted of Viridian
Rustylove of Cobalt

In a tie for 4th place, winning one item from their inventions:
Culture of Hunter's "In the Defense of Viking Raids" - wins a red ship's bell
Adrielle of Viridian's "Rum Supplying Invention" - wins a vase of red wildflowers

***The following 3 people also win a red and gold ribbon***
In 3rd place, winning three items from his invention - a red ship's wheel, candles, and a pedestal:
Masters of Hunter's "How to Recolor a Familiar"

The 2nd place winner of the renamed sloop "Ruby Goldfish" (which just got a fresh paint job of red railings, and gold sideboards):

Stotiger of Sage's "How to Walk Your Pony! You Lazy Pirates."

And last, but not least, winning her very own Ruby Goldbird (a red/gold unnamed parrot):
Tams of Malachite's "The Team Machine!"

Prizes will be delivered by a dashing and stealthy OM soon!
CONGRATULATIONS to the winners and thanks to all of the entrants!
