Re: Build an Island - Win a Mirror and Other Trinkets! [Deadline June 1]

What time zone are you in? The timestamp for the post on my computer says 12:17:14 AM, and it's on MDT, an hour later than Puzzle Pirates game time (which coincides with real-life Pacific Time). My last edit, at 12:22:05, puts me within the deadline by a good thirty-eight minutes.

Well, even if it is one hour after the deadline, it is a pretty impressive model. I would vote for you to be included in the contest. At the end, one hour won't hurt anyone, and that is some impressive artwork. Easily the best model of all.

It wasn't submitted late at all, but before the deadline. We are on Mountain time and I was sitting here the whole time Geri was working on submitting the entry. Game time is Pacific time, which is one hour later than we are here, and she had her entry posted well before 1 a.m. here (hence, before 11:59 p.m. "game time").

I agree, it's a great model! She put a lot of work into it.

I give a big thumbs up to all the models!

Re: Build an Island - Win a Mirror and Other Trinkets! [Deadline June 1]

'Kay, one last time: there is no reason for my entry not to be counted. The final edit to my post was made at 7:22 AM Greenwich Mean Time. The official time of Puzzle Pirates is Pacific Daylight Time, or GMT -8.

7:22 AM - 8 hours = 11:22 PM.

I hope this clears up any misunderstandings about the deadline-compliance of my entry.

I guess they will reveal winners for both eventa at the same time, It may be taking them and the judges a while for the writing one.

Re: Build an Island - Win a Mirror and Other Trinkets! [Deadline June 1]

We're working on the judging. It's only been a couple of days, and we want to get more opinions than just Nut and myself, so it may be a few days longer before our judges answer those PM.

Judging for this contest will be done before the writing, though. We won't hold back one for the other.

Re: Build an Island - Win a Mirror and Other Trinkets! [Deadline June 1]

There may not have been a hundred entries, but the quality of the entries was amazing. I was quite impressed with how accurate some of you were and how creative you were. You did a wonderful job. Below are the winners for this little event:

5th - Admire - Green Knobby Coral
4th - Serducho - Green/black Handkerchief
3rd - Verse - Green/black Ribbon
2rd - Quitex - Green Mirror

And our winner....

1st - Geronimo - Green Rose

Thanks for the incredible entries mates, they were quite the site. Prizes should be delivered by a helpful OM as soon as he or she gets the chance.

Re: Build an Island - Win a Mirror and Other Trinkets! [Deadline June 1]

Quitex, Geronimo is a girl. ;)

Yeaargh, I won! That is awesome on many levels. I'd say that is very much worth the insomnia and insanity and increasingly foul-smelling paint clay.

It's been a pleasure working on this contest, folks, and I hope ye all enjoyed it as much as I did.

Congratulations, everyone! I really enjoyed seeing all the entries.

Yep, I thought Geronimo's entry was best too, but as objective as I try to be, there's no doubt a bit of bias on my end since she's my kid. ;-)
