Alright alright, I know it seems like I've ran out of ideas... and really I did, because you guys have been doing all these creative entries, so why not put your creative minds to make a creative contest yourselves? Why not, you'll do better than me anyway.
Alright, this one is a little different. There's only going to be 1 winner, who'll get into the first closed beta. What you have to do is create your own contest.
It must be:
-Mature
-Challenging
-Interesting
-Related to Dawn of Fantasy in some way
-Use the first 2 contests for guidelines

Your contest must feature 1 first closed beta winner and 2 runner up winners, like the first 2 contests. The user who wins this one, will get a key to the first closed beta and their contest will become the 4th contest.
I don't think I need to say more, so go ahead and jump into our submissions thread and begin creating your own contests. Cant...wait...to see...entries...
Same business - 10 entries then deadline will be announced, unless it will be going too slow. Enjoy, good luck and have fun!

Alright there has been a little bit of a thread mishap so your replies got deleted, thankfully there were few of them.
Anyway I just wanted to remind you that so far we have 2 entries and that's not very good, since we need to hurry up to host 2 more contests instead of one, so I suggest you guys run in before I put up a deadline without the recommended amount of entries (10).
Thanks.

Okay peeps, I'm THIS close to cancelling the contest. I guess nobody wants to get in the beta anymore? Alright. You guys got 1 more day until it cancels. There's too little entries.

Perhaps try something small like betawatcher.com and let em know you got a few beta keys on your fan site via contests, hopefully they'll add that, the site and contest will get some more hits and things will pick up, good for DOF all around.

Alright because of the unfortunate participation the poll has started. Everyone may vote, and I will have to see about what to do with the winner, I'll have to have a talk about this with the developers.
Also an important note: the next contest will be very important, basically like a homework assignment for you guys which the devs asked me to run so keep that in mind for when it comes around in a few days.

What a shame more didn't participate. I voted, I was a bit disappointed though. I was hoping for something really different and original. I went for best storyline.

Sorry about what happened Ltio, I know how it feels to have everyone ignore your project :S.

Well I voted for Manufacture a Map, I wouldn't mind seeing descriptions of deserted wastelands, deserts, coasts and maybe even jungles XD.

Lets hope the Devs have a proper solution for choosing the winner.

Well currently the winner will be based on the poll, I will however consult the developers about it since this seems to be a short ended contest.
For the next contest, however, the devs and devs only will be picking as many winners as they like. You will have to write an essay and they will read each and every single one and pick out the ones they chose. So everybody be ready for some real work, and not fun creativity until the 5th contest.
btw, sneaky, I seriously have to ask you sometime, are you male or female? Your username really doesn't tell, sorry, but you seem to be around a lot now and I just don't wanna get confused.

Since when isn't writing fun creativity?

It is creativity but it's more like a serious essay. I tell you again, the developers have asked me to host and encourage this contest so I expect maximum participation from whoever didn't win a key yet. This is important for you, for the developers and for me as well as the administrator of the website, since I am responsible to make sure that we have enough fair entries for the developers to pick from. So please don't let me down, and of course the developers, they need good beta testers willing to report bugs with a proper description and details.

If they won't, I'll enforce it :)
Well no I won't be that strict but I'll be heavily encouraging it.

Hmm, key or not, will it acceptable to submit one for the next contest even though I already have one. I'm intrigued.

I'm curious on that one as well. I figure if it's something fun maybe just submit for fun as opposed to a key. But again it depends on the specifics.
