Hello zOMG! community!

It's that time of year again - time for spooky tricks and delightful treats!

This year, since we won't be having an in-game zOMG! event (sorry Owlie! gonk ), we wanted to make sure to have some fun contests for all you passionate zOMG! players to enjoy, and possibly win some great prizes!

In the middle of our recent move to the new building, we uncovered a....box. It looked like an ordinary cardboard box to be sure, but after dusting it off and opening it up, we found a big surprise. Inside this seemingly mundane box were some real world Gaia store items.. and some of them are zOMG! related items! We'll also have some virtual zOMG! items to giveaway too! (these weren't in the dusty box though...) What better time to hand out treats than at Halloween!

Read details about the contests below, as well as learn what prizes you could win!

Hope you'll all join me for some Halloween fun, chat, and contests! And you never know, I might have a few Halloween tricks up my sleeve that I am not telling you about. You know, just to keep you on your toes! ninja

~~Contest #1: zOMP! - Z'oh My Pumpkin - Pumpkin Carving Contest! ~~


What's Halloween without jack-o-lanterns? Carving pumpkins was always one of my favorite things about the holiday, and I think we need to keep this fun activity alive - zOMG! style!

You may or may not remember, but when zOMG! first launched, I carved a zOMP! pumpkin for an office contest. It was the the best pumpkin I've ever carved - even had an angry garlic on the side. This year, I want to see what you can do. If your pumpkin is one of the winners, you could score some sweet loot!


~~ Contest #1: zOMP! - Z'oh My Pumpkin - Pumpkin Carving Contest Rules ~~


a) Contest entries will be accepted from today, October 15, 2012 until October 31st, 2012.

b) To enter, all you need to do is carve a Halloween pumpkin with a zOMG! theme. Once you have your jack-o-lantern complete, take a picture of it, and post the image in this thread with the following information:
Quote:

* Username
* Contest # (either 1, 2, or 3)
* Name of entry
* Brief description of your entry - what does it represent>


c) Your pumpkin carving design must be a unique design - no using the pattern on our downloads page to reproduce Ling's design from a few years ago! biggrin

~~Contest #1: zOMP! - Z'oh My Pumpkin - Pumpkin Carving Judging & Contest Prizes ~~

Entries will be judged by Gaia staff members on a variety of factors - creativity, quality, unique design, etc. As with all artistic contests, we'll pick the winners based on which we think are really cool and which move us in some way. As always, judging artistic pieces (even pumpkins!) is a subjective process so please know that even if you aren't a winner, it doesn't mean your pumpkin carving is bad! We're sure they will all probably be pretty amazing biggrin

This contest will have three prizes! If your pumpkin is selected as a winner, you could win one of the following:

First Prize - a zOMG! hoodie jacket and a $25 Gaia cash card
Second Prize - a zOMG! hoodie jacket and a $25 Gaia cash card
Third Prize - a zOMG! hoodie jacket and a $25 Gaia cash card

Note: Winners will be sent a private message from my siskataya account, and you'll be told how to claim your prize.

Best of luck to all entrants! biggrin

~~Contest #2: "Server Lag Monster" Design Contest ~~


This year, we have often heard loud cries that dound very much like the following: "Oh noes - the server lag has struck again! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! HALP! Recycle the servers! Recycle the servers!!!11!!1 AHHHHHHHH!!! gonk "

We know the lag issue has gotten some of you bummed out on occasion, so we thought a fun Halloween contest would be for you to draw/represent this most soul-crushing, game-wrecking, horrible experience-making game lag in monster form! So, to that end, welcome to the "Server Lag Monster" Design Contest.

If that lag were a monster in zOMG!, what do you think it would look like? Maybe have 900 eyes and big green teeth and tiny arms? Perhaps a giant purple blob of blobby game-wrecking evilness? We'd love to see you all try and represent what this monster would be.


~~Contest #2: "Server Lag Monster" Design Contest Rules~~

This contest is really easy to enter - everyone can do it! All you have to do is draw or design your idea of what a Server Lag Monster would look like, and post an image of it in the thread during the time the contest is running!

a) Contest entries will be accepted from today, October 15, 2012 until October 31st, 2012.

b) You can use any creative medium to create your diabolical masterpiece - paint, CG, pencil, ink, chalk, doughnuts thrown on pavement, live walruses in a line - we don't care! Well, as long as it is appropriate for Gaia. No explicit or inappropriate materials eek and no copyright materials - this must be your own design!

c) Once your monster is created, post a picture of your design here and provide the following information in your post:
Quote:
* Username
* Name of entry
* Contest # (either 1, 2, or 3)
*Medium (e.g. CG, pencil, chalk, clay, etc.)
* Brief description of your entry - what does it represent



~~Contest #2: "Server Lag Monster" Design Contest Judging and Prizes~~

Entries will be judged by Gaia staff members on a variety of factors - creativity, quality, unique design, etc. As we said before in the Contest #1 rules, we'll pick the winners based on which we think are really cool and which move us in some way. As you all know, judging artistic pieces (even Server Lag Monster designs!) is a subjective process so please know that even if you aren't a winner, it doesn't mean your pumpkin carving is bad! We're sure they will all probably be pretty amazing biggrin

This contest will have three prizes! If your pumpkin is selected as a winner, you could win one of the following:

First Prize - a zOMG! Kokeshi Doll tote bag (the last one we have at all!), a Fluff Monster plushie, a zOMG! monster plushie, and a $25 Gaia cash card.
Second Prize - a Garlic monster plushie and $25 Gaia cash card
Third Prize - a zOMG! monster plushie and $25 Gaia cash card


Note: Winners will be sent a private message from my siskataya account, and you'll be told how to claim your prize.


Best of luck to all entrants! biggrin

~~Contest #3: Spooky Screenshot!:~~



Hey everyone!

Well, dang - the original contest I had in mind cannot be done. D'oh! Not to worry, we think a "Spooky Screenshot" contest will be just as fun. All you have to do is dress up your avatar in Haloween gear, head into zOMG!, and take some screenshots of the action! Feel free to have other people join you, add captions or alter it in a photo-editing program. It can be funny or scary - whatever you can come up with!

Once your final entry is complete, post your image entry in this thread with the following information:
Quote:

*Username
* Title of image
* Description of what is going on in the screenshot


Remember that contest entries will be accepted fromOctober 15, 2012 until October 31st, 2012.

This contest will have three prizes! If your screenshot is selected as a winner, you could win one of the following:
First Prize - A Sweetheart Ring, an Abuse or Integrity Ring (your choice), a Ghost Ring (it is Halloween after all!) and 500,000 gold!
Second Prize - An Abuse or Integrity Ring (your choice), a Ghost Ring (it is Halloween after all!) and 250,000 gold!
Third Prize - A Ghost Ring (it is Halloween after all!) and 100,000 gold!

Have fun and best of luck to all entrants!

~~ User Run Contests! ~~


Hey everyone! It seems that the spirit of Halloween cannot be limited to just my little contests - some of you want to have Halloween contests for the zOMG! forum too. Awesome - that's the community spirit!

If you want to have a companion contest featured in this thread, just post your contest in the thread, then I will link to it in this post.

A couple rules to remember if you are hosting a user-run contest:
a) You have to post rules for the contest in your post - they must be clear and concise.
b) You must have the items/gold you are promising as prizes before starting the contest.
c) All contests must be Gaia appropriate - no having contests that violate the ToS!
d) In the case of a tie or winner dispute, I'll read through the contest rules, view the entries, and make a determination on a winner. This will save both yourself and the contest entrant the hassle of sorting the mess out.

A couple rules to remember if you are entering a user-run contest:
a) These contests are user run, and the prizes will be determined by the contest holder based on the rules of the contest.
b) Make sure to carefully read the contest entry rules - don't want to be disqualified for missing something!
c) All entries must be Gaia appropriate - no posting entries that violate the ToS!
c) In the case of a tie or winner dispute, I'll read through the contest rules, view the entries, and make a determination on a winner. This will save both yourself and the contest holder the hassle of sorting the mess out.

~~Updates and Information! ~~


Hey everyone! This is where any contest updates and information will be posted biggrin

* This contest is open to all Gaians - if your country allows you to enter such contests, you are free to enter biggrin

* You may enter each contest up to a maximum of 3 times

* Ok, so some of you international Gaians might not have easy access to pumpkins. Not a problem! Just, erm, carve something similar you can get your hands on - a melon, squash, etc. We'll pretend it is a pumpkin!

* One note about the hoodies - they tend to run in super large sizes, so you might be swimming in it if you win it! Oh well, better too much hoodie than too little, right? XD

~~Winners List ~~


Hey zOMGaians!

Well, we've finally managed to pick the winners of the zOMG! Halloween 2K12 contests. Let me tell you, it was a tough process. All the entries were fabulous - we're so impressed with your creativity, style, and design ideas. Well done to everyone who entered; we're so proud of your efforts!

That said, these were contests, and we did have to pick winners. We based our selections on a variety of factors - skill, effort, creativity and unique design, humor, etc. In short, each winning entry was selected for a variety of reasons! Congratulations to all the winners biggrin

===============================

~~ Contest #1: zOMP! - Z'oh My Pumpkin - Pumpkin Carving Contest Winners! ~~


FIRST PLACE: Winner of a zOMG! hoodie jacket and a $25 Gaia cash card is: Krissim Klaw
Krissim Klaw
Username: Krissim Klaw
Contest: 1 Pumpkin Carving Contest
Name of entry: Don't Go to the Light!
Brief description of your entry: My entry is of a zOMG Robofish who has managed to lure in some unsuspecting coral fluffs. I always felt the Robofish part of the map was one of the creepiest parts in the game, especially your first few times to the shallow seas. A winding dark narrow passage way where it is easy to get left behind. Those ominous lights. Plus, I thought the lighting effect of their lamps would make for a fun pumpkin carving. Remember, NEVER EVER go into the light. eek


The design was a wrap around the pumpkin so I had to take multiple photos to try and get everything in.

* starzXnight
* Name of entry: Attack: Out of the gates
* Contest # 1
* Medium: uh... pumpkin x:
* I wanted to make it seem as if the animated that reside in the general Deadman's Pass area were banding together and coming out of the gates that normally hold them back :] The gate's design was actually referenced from the loading screen/just standing outside of the gates and looking at it. On the right side, I have some of the animated that you encounter in Deadman's Shadow, and on the right side, I have the animated that you encounter in Deadman's Pass.

~~Contest #2: "Server Lag Monster" Design Contest Winners! ~~


FIRST PLACE: Winner of a zOMG! Kokeshi Doll tote bag (the last one we have at all!), a Fluff Monster plushie,a zOMG! monster plushie, and a $25 Gaia cash card is: Red Kutai

Red Kutai

I'm still working on my other lag monster concept, but since the first one is essentially complete, I thought I'd go ahead and submit it.
User Image
(I've heard the details can be hard to see on the dark background, so you can find an alternative here.)


Username: Red Kutai
Name of Entry: Lagmia (the Lag Hag)
Contest: #2, "Server Lag Monster"
Medium: Vector (Inkscape)
Description: Despite the name, she is obviously based more on a gorgon than a lamia - the latter just puns better with the word 'lag'. While gorgons (and lamia) traditionally take on the features of snakes, Lagmia takes on the features of slugs, and snails - arguably nature's laggiest critters.

  • Gaze: Much like Medusa, Lagmia is capable of petrifying any poor soul unlucky enough to meet her gaze; rather than stone, however, she uses paralysing lag. This attack affects any player that is looking her direction at the time that she uses it, possibly with a 'warm up' which allows players a chance to turn away before it's used.

  • Slime: Lagmia leaves a sticky trail of slime wherever she goes; this slime can be used to trap players, slowing them down and holding them in place as they struggle fruitlessly. This effect is what we commonly know as 'rubber banding'.

  • Claws: Used primarily for severing connections to the server. Apparently also useful for severing heads. redface



SECOND PLACE: Winner of a Garlic monster plushie and $25 Gaia cash card is: scullylam

~Username: scullylam
~Name of entry: lag monster
~Contest # 2
~Medium: computer tablet. ps elements 6 (file resizing), sketchbook: copic edition (sketching), corel painter ess. 4 (coloring)
~Brief description of your entry: when i think of lag, it is like a troll. it comes out of nowhere. trolling seems like something a guy would do, even it be pranks and what not. lag monster is a shapeshifter. when he is about his day to day spurts of fun, he is in a human form. he doesn't seem much a threat until he thinks users are a pain in his side and he turns it up an octave. he is made of code, wires, cables, electronics. his attacks can shoot from his hands and cords he has on him. (also can attack while in human form)

>>;;;; it's in the spoiler...

THIRD PLACE: Winner of a a zOMG! monster plushie and $25 Gaia cash card is: Sakura Rosina
Sakura Rosina
siskataya


* Sakura Rosina
* Minimus Responsus
* Contest #2
* Fabric markers, puff paint, pom pom scarf (tail), shirt, image edited with Paint
* This little lag monster is normally docile and usually doesn't stray far from his home. When he does adventure away from his home, he will normally pick a player or group of players and wrap his arms around their legs, wanting nothing more than help finding a way home. Sadly, he's too young to realize when he grabs hold of someone, it causes them to slow down and get hurt (lag).

And for added information, his shirt says "Rawr", but I was a bit off center when I designed it. sweatdrop

~~Contest #3: Spooky Screenshot Winners!:~~


FIRST PLACE: Winner of a Sweetheart Ring, an Abuse or Integrity Ring (your choice), a Ghost Ring (it is Halloween after all!) and 500,000 gold is: Silk Kanishk
Silk Kanishk
~~Contest #3: Spooky Screenshot!:~~

Username: Silk Kanishk
Title of image: Deathly Joke
Description of what is going on in the screenshot: The night is hallow's eve and our undead comedian is giving a stand-up routine to the dead who rest here. Nothing but the slither of serpents and the still laughing gazes of the pumpkins respond to his humor. Which is just as well; The living would never tolerate such deathly puns.

SECOND PLACE: Winner of a Sweetheart Ring, an Abuse or Integrity Ring (your choice), a Ghost Ring (it is Halloween after all!) and 250,000 gold is: Rabid-Turtle
Rabid-Turtle
*Username: Rabid-Turtle
* Title of image: Dark Shadows in the graveyard
*Contest # 3
* Description of what is going on in the screenshot:

If you find yourself in the Von Helson graveyard when the moon is high you may just come across a sinister phantom lurking in the shadows, sometimes you hear music coming from the graves, it may just be a trick to lure you to your doom.

THIRD PLACE: Winner of a Sweetheart Ring, an Abuse or Integrity Ring (your choice), a Ghost Ring (it is Halloween after all!) and 100,000 gold is: Genius Tech Freak
Genius Tech Freak
*Username: Genius Tech Freak
*Contest: 3
* Title of image: Plans Gone Wrong
* Description: Just an average day scientist looking for things to do or work on and getting into more trouble than the bargained for. Yes he did experiment on himself to, hence why he's a wolf thing. (I hope the image size isn't too big.... I also hope I submitted it correctly or in the correct place.)

The grue strikes no once,not twice, but thrice. We all know that the grue is one of the scariest zomg creatures ever. So scary that every time you see it you have to get so drunk you don't even remember what it looks likes or how scared you were. The only way to counteract the grues fear is to bring that handy bottle of sunny D. Anyways back to the story. So our story starts by the deadmans gate and we have a crew together i wont list names because this is actually a true story and a reason why i don't do tuna runs anymore. We entered the first yellow maze and a wild grue struck. Oh well just a grue our tank had sunny d so it was all good. We wanted to clear all the ym room and gr before hpr to help the tuna person with shorbs for there blood bat. We revive and move on soon as we hit green room he strikes again god im getting sick of being drunk. We rebuff and decide to hit a different room guess what other door his brother was sitting at emotion Our tuna person rage quit and that is the fierce and scary story of the three grues.
