I don't think anyone has logged into the Holly Contest group account in many months. I know I sent a PM offering a donation of a couple Holly offspring early this year but they were never added to the Donators list either. There are several people with access to the group account so it seems strange that there hasn't been any updates since January.

THE HOLLY CONTEST.

 

This was an experiment, thought up by ArynChris, that we've done the past three years, and we rewarded the experimenters with Hollies. So, we're going to do it again this year. To sum up,

 

Those who collect the most Flamingo Wyverns, adult or frozen, in 2015 will receive a Holly egg come Christmas.

 

Why only Flamingos, and not other commons too? It's an experiment to see if we can make them harder to find in the cave and AP. It's worked well in the past, and this year we've selected a breed which shares its description and biome with the Pinks, sought-after for their BSA-- can we make Flamingos rarer?

 

To sign up: Simple! Just post in the thread and start collecting Flamingos. In your post, give us a link to your scroll and tell us how you will be listing your Flamingos (see rule 4.)

 

To update your totals: If you post again with your current total before December, we'll update your total in the second post. This is entirely optional. We will arrive at the correct total for everyone; that is why we have Total Checkers.

 

To donate: PM either the Holly Contest account or any of the hosts with access to the account.

 

How total checking and prize distribution works: If you've donated, you will receive a PM in late November or early December asking you to check in and confirm your activity and donation. This is the start of the endgame for the contest.

As soon as the contest ends, the verification process will begin. Over the next few days, available moderators and total checkers will take a look at every single Flamingo on the competitors' scrolls to make sure they are from 2015, and report the total to the other verifiers. Once this process is over, we will post the results in the thread and begin to distribute the prizes.

Not all winners will hear from us immediately (for the 2014 contest, winners were dealt with in batches of fifteen.) Winners are then given the list of Hollies, and told to select a certain number of them in order of preference, from which we will give them the highest available-- or they may choose to decline the Holly and receive an Alternate Prize. If you are a donator, we will contact you to tell you where your egg is going.

Once all the Hollies are distributed, there will be a short break and then we will contact those who requested the Alternate Prizes instead.

 

RULES:

COMPETITORS:

1. You may join at any time in the year before the contest ends.

2. Only Flamingos collected in 2015 count. Flamingos you already have count if and only if they were laid/caught on or after January 1, 2015.

3. The contest will end at midnight December 10, 2015. All Flamingos must be grown up or frozen before this date; the latest "grown up on" date we should see is December 9.

4. Please keep your Flamingos in one place on your scroll. If this is too much trouble, you can use a Google Doc instead. If this is the case, please use view links, give us a link in your joining post, make sure it is publicly visible, and update it at the end of the contest. If your doc is not updated and the Flamingos are not in one place on your scroll, we may not arrive at the correct total. However, if they are in one place on your scroll, it is not necessary to make a doc.

5. Only frozen hatchlings and adults count, not eggs or growing hatchlings.

6. Flamingos must all be ALIVE and NOT ZOMBIES and NOT WILD at Christmas time, when we go through and double check everyone's numbers.

7. You may obtain the Flamingos in any way that does not violate the TOS. They may be bred by you, caught off the AP, found in the cave, or traded for. ArynChris, creator of the contest, clarifies on this matter:

 

DONATORS:

1. You may donate at any time of the year before the Holly distribution ends.

2. You may make special rules for the recipient of your egg (eg no freezing) but these are not sanctioned by the contest, and will not be noted anywhere by the contest. The contest is not responsible if the recipient chooses not to follow your rules, and you are obligated to give them their egg whether they agree to the rules beforehand or not. Think of them more as "requests" regarding the egg's future than rules.

3. Be prepared to hold your egg for a day or two if the distribution process runs longer than breeding season. It is an unfortunate truth that this has happened in all three contests so far. It cannot be helped. To put things into perspective, last year over 150 PMs were sent out during the Holly distribution-- not to mention the ones received! It takes time to sort things out.

All donators are very appreciated. smile.gif

First place gets first pick of the Hollies, then second place, and so on.

 

There will also be Alternate Prizes, which will be nice, non-Holly eggs given to the winners who decline the Holly prize.

Note: This year we have elected to change Runner-Up Prizes into Alternate Prizes, for declining Holly winners only, since we had so many Holly winners last year and due to the relative difficulty in distributing Runner-Up/Alternate Prizes. However, if we have a low number of donations we may go back to the Runner-Up system.

Everyone is welcome to contribute to the pool of Alternate Prizes with donations.

I almost forgot to sign up this year! I've been collecting flamingos and want to be included in the contest please. They are on my scroll sorted by breed. Here is my scroll

Hello people, and dragons. I'm here to enter the contest. All of the Flamingos I've caught this year are at the bottom of my scroll. I think I have around 181 right now. My scroll link is here. http://dragcave.net/user/TheShadows Also most of them are not named, I apologize if I'm doing this wrong I'm don't generally do forums and hardly know what I'm doing. But I read the rules and have listed everything that is required I believe. Please correct me if I am wrong.

So is anyone still running this contest?

I've only just become active after a lengthy hiatus, give me a few days to find out what's what. Don't panic though something will be worked out if there is a problem.

Updated

 

Finally added everyone and updated totals.

 

Added a whopping 31 Hollies to the donation list, bringing the total number of Holly prizes to 105! Confirmation PMs will be sent out tonight to all the donors. Thank you!

 

arlais: If you still wish to participate, we'll need a link to your scroll.

 

Puppyloverdog10000: If you'd like us to use your Google doc, you'll need to allow us access. However, it looks like your scroll is in breed sort, in which case it's fine anyway.

 

Remember, everyone, all your Flamingos need to be adult or frozen before midnight on December 10, or they won't count!

 

I want to apologize for the disrepair of the thread this year. Personally, the amount of time I have left for DC has dwindled to zero unfortunately. But everyone who collected enough Flamingos will still get a Holly if I can help it. More status updates incoming later.
