For the first time in over a year, BlockBox is holding a build contest! Before I get into contest details, I’d like to give a warm welcome to Josh (joshypants99) who after nearly three years with us and well over two years as moderator for us has become a part of our administration team. Not just because he’s my favorite either: he’s hardworking, responsible, and due to his prior technical knowledge he was an obvious choice. In his short time working with us, he has begun to work on finally opening the minigame server, fixed several issues, and was even the one to set up the world for the build contest.
I’m not sure if he’s trying to put me out of a job or what but The BlockBox team has been working on getting this contest ready for quite a while now, so be sure to thank Josh, the rest of the staff, and the Architects for all of their work.
As you’ve probably noticed, the server has taken on somewhat of a space theme since 1.8. As such, the theme of this contest is spacecraft! How would you fly (or warp, or bend the fabric of space-time, or…) Steve around the cosmos in style? The rules are as follows:
- Your build must be some kind of space vehicle!
- Only one entry can be submitted per player.
- Entries must be built entirely by the participant; in other words, no help from friends. (Maybe next time?)
- All entries must be built in the contest world. You can get to it by typing /warp contest.
- All server rules apply.
Builds will be judged on originality, quality, and adherence to the theme. Winners will have their builds incorporated around the spawn, and other prizes are likely but yet to be decided. All entries are eligible for building ranks. To mark your plot for judging, type /p done. The planned deadline for the contest is April 21st.
That’s pretty much it! If you have any questions about rules, ask an Architect or a staff member.
