    Halloween is just around the corner, and that means it's pumpkin carving season in the States! Unleash your carving tools and other creative cutlery to carve up a Halloween-themed jack-o-lantern.

    Submission Date: October 21, 2019 - November 4, 2019
    Winners Announcement: November 8, 2019

    How to Enter
    1. Carve your choice of pumpkin, squash, fruits, or melon.
    2. Snap a photo with a hand-written postcard displaying your character name and www.playredfox.com/nine_dragons.
    3. Then click the UPLOAD A FILE button below to submit your entry.
    Submission Tips:
    • Try to take the best picture possible, as picture quality helps make a good impression on the judges.
    • Get the lighting right. Some jack-o-lanterns will look best lit up at night. Others call for a dramatically cloudy daytime sky or even full sunshine. Experiment to see what looks best for you.
    • Pay close attention to the background of your carving.
    • You can have a look at past winners here.

    well, i would recommend if there are other choices. like players do it with photoshop or other Data view program not in real life. cuz we dont celebrate dat in our country and i know some players in game who dont do that neither. plus we dont and we cant get the tools even if we want to. dats another problem. the last problem is that im in military and i rarely open and things gone very wild since labor event, and we all wanna have fun in game like together, not a specific group of ppl and other ppl go smell their "axe" for good if u know what i mean.
    so my msg to u GM is : " please consider all players in ur contests and events not just some certain groups, cuz thats called over-stepping and dats no good in business knowing dat a player got more than 10-20 k CC cant enter the contest because his condition and place cant help it. I hope i made myself clear. We all wanna have fun, u wanted to make the new relicks and all the P2W stuff do it ur the GM and u know ur game system, but turning contests like dat, i mean not all in the game are even celebrating this event in real life anyway. Thank you GM.
    Please Try to Fix this issue by any means <3.

    the least thing that would happen to a soldier while carving a fruit or any shape lets say cucumber for example, any Major that sees him do dat would be ready to shuv it up his ..... u can deduce it ^^

    Geez you're really upset because a photo contest during Halloween is to take a pic of something you carved. That is a huge tradition for people here. It makes all the sense in the world. What would you have the contest be?

    I think the rules are clear to all. It`s a contest, no need to give a hand and force somebody to change his post if it was badly described.

    Clearly I miss read the post and thought they wanted us to have the game site in the background of our pics to make sure we were taking real pictures.

    I will be uploading another pic of my pumpkin with my post card and the web address :)

    Wish more people were entering the contest :(

    LoL
    Dude!... why u act like a fool?
    GM is doing the right thing at guiding on the correct way of posting, Bankz did a great job on his/her carving and I would hate to see a carving with lesser quality would win just cause of a small detail like that.. Ahri is doing the right thing

    Is it that u dont think u can make it better? u trying to eliminate competence? come on.. u made a post without a carving or the structure the contest requires.. so u would be desquilified by ur own criteria by later editing ur post..

    Play nice and go carve ur best... ;)

    First of all it is not me who is acting like a fool, but GM taking away Bankz `s chance to check his own picture again. His own chance and way – not with GM`s help. There still was a time for her/him to improve the picture.
    GM had never pointed out errors in contests before. Doing so now suggests special treatment, what I`m pretty sure Bankz don`t want.
    Bankz did a great job on his/her carving – agreed, I like it too. But tere is something like fair play, I hope even in 9D world. All should have equal chances, and GM should limit itself to assessing the work when time is over. My last word: Would she/he have a chance to win without GM`s help? No.

    Regarding my post – read the rules, there is nothing about editing own post in the future. So I`m free to do it on condition that I do it before the deadline.

    Ok
    1. The GMs have no reason to give me special treatment.
    2. If you look at past events, GMs have told players to tweak their posts (look at the old "guardian and me" event post if you want proof)...
    3. It can be seen by all contestants so they don’t make the same mistake I did which is helping them.

    I will say I was confused simple because the website was a link that made me think they wanted us to post the main site in our pictures.

    Now I’m just gonna wait and see all the wonderful pumpkin/melon pictures that people post :)

    So.. u saying it would be "fair" to get him disqualified out of a technicality?

    so much for Fairplay...

    Man, u trying to make an argument from a player trying to participate in a contest on a fair and clean way, then GM comes and do his/her job (nicely i must add) arguin that Ahri is helping Bankz... Dude, thats on the job description!

    Jelousy is a bad bad thing...even worse than foolishness
