More-Submarines-Please Challenge

Posted by ballightning on June 12, 2009

Spore Forum Post

The Spore Aquarium is nice (especially with all the new starfish), but it needs MORE SUBMARINES!! 

This fish tank randomly pulls in hand picked creations from Sporecast collections of aquatic creations. 

Create an amazing submarine in the More-Submarines-Please Challenge! 

What will the challenge winner get? 

1st Place: A chance to be featured on Spore.com 
Top 10: A spot in the rotation of Submarines in the Spore Aquarium as seen on the Tools page 

Your creation: 
• must not have any parent authored by a different creator. 
• must not have any offensive creation in its lineage (any parent or child creations). 
• must not have any links or references to other sites in the submission’s tags, name, or description 

Submissions that do not meet the above criteria will not be considered for a feature 

Additional Requirements: 
• Your creation must look like a submarine 
• It can be made in any editor 
• To submit a creation: publish it with the tag mcsubmarinechallenge and post a picture and link to it here on the forum 
• You can submit as many creations as you’d like 
• All submissions must be in by 11:00 AM PST Tuesday (07/07/09) 

Challenge FAQ 

Q: Do we get to vote for the winner from selected finalists as we did in the UL challenge? and if ‘yes’, given the mixed reactions to the UL challenge finalists, will it be possible to win multiple entries into the final (a good thing imho, means quality is considered first) and finally, will we be getting another wonderful poster? – PseudoFrog 

A: Yes, we’ll select finalists for you to vote on. Finalists will be based on creation merit, not author. This means that if a player enters 2 amazing creations, they might both be finalists. We will aim to include a diversity of authors in the finalists list, but keep in mind that since multiple entries are allowed, we want each entry to have an equal shot at getting a fair judgment. 

I know this is a somewhat controversial decision, so again, we’ll see how it goes. As always, your feedback is more than welcome. 

No promises on a poster just yet. I’ll see what I can do
