It’s that time of year again!

Christmas is upon us, which means it is time for another Christmas Competition! This time I am starting on Black Friday so you will have plenty of time to code you project. The stakes are going to be high. Christmas is a great motivation to code, there are ideas all around us. So let’s get moving!

Rules

  1. Follow all the community guidelines
  2. Use common sense
  3. Deadline is December 22, 2018 8:00 PM

How it works

  1. Create a project with the theme of Christmas
  2. post your project on this topic
  3. Hope you win

How the judges will judge your projects (Trust me, you'll want to read these)
  • by relation to theme kinda important, I mean, if you score five or under, your project is disqualified
  • design Just in case you didn’t know, the better the design is, the better your score is. This isn’t a contest of who can make the worst project
  • how dominant emojis are in your projects The less the emojis dominate, the higher the score. they just make the project look bleh
  • fun-ness I created a new word, like funner, or funned.

I’m not sure that we can feature any Christmas projects because I think only the winners of the official Christmas contest (that THT is probably going to make) get featured for Christmas-related projects.


#4

Thanks for adding the new tag list thing I suggested. I can make a wiki post with other prizes for you if you want? I guess I’ll do a request for the winner. It can be anything-- coding, drawing, general request.
I’d help judge if you’d let me too, but I’m not sure if that’s an option?


#5

@Dylan329 & @MyPizza perfect time of year for a pixel artist showdown!


#6

And so it begins… :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


#7

I guess I just beat them to creating contests :rofl:. Should you email them about featuring contest projects, or should I? btw, if you don’t respond by Monday, I’ll go ahead and email them.


#8

Wow, this earn the “nice topic” badge very fast.


Exactly.

Yep.


#9

Haha, I’ll be joining this showdown but you and Dylan are much better than me.


#10

@FearlessPhoenix

I’ll let you win this time to give me time to perfect my method for next year.


#11

Oh, so you want help judge this year? It’s okay if you aren’t, I just want to know.


#12

I’ll help, I was talking to Sophia or whoever the heck I replied to

And fearless


#13

I can email them :slightly_smiling_face:


#14

K, cool. Would you mind screenshotting or copying and pasting what you write so I can see it? Sorry if I sound demanding, I just want to be in the know.


#15

Sure, I’ll email tomorrow and I’ll let you know what they say.


#16

Alright, cool. Also, about the Thanksgiving contest, Dylan329 won with his turkey project, but I’m pretty sure you guys already featured that?


#17

I’m not sure if we did, I’ll check that out tomorrow too. Like the Christmas projects I’m not sure if we can feature the thanksgiving one either but I’ll see what THT says (it’s my fault because I said we could feature it so I’m really sorry if they say not to)


#18

Ah, it’s ok, the only person you’d have to apologize to is Dylan, but I think he’ll understand.


#19

Umm, not everyone believes in Christmas.


#20

You did? Well, I won’t take no for an answer, but I’m interested in this competition
