Does anyone know who the owner is of this webpage? It doesn't appear active anymore.
I would like to see them get it going again. I wonder if it's possible.

Thank you, I just figured it out and was coming back to say I messaged the owner. I will tell them about this forum if they are still active.

ok, I did it. She said that right now Devthon isn't active. I told her about the forums and left a link.

I hope we could get that going again because having creator competitions is an amazing idea. If not, we can also always make our own at some point ;)

True Cookie competitions are always good. Devathon competition has a lot of work put into it. It would take a little bit of time to make all the rules and such but it definitely could be done. I hope that Devathon returns in the upcoming months.
The creators here would be a great starting point to making a competition. Pixel pusher is also so new it might take a few months to build up enough audience to get a good amount of entries.

hmmm

I can talk to Gothic and see where she would like to take it.

Contests like that are a lot of work for not much reward. The drama lamas also show up from time to time ruining what joy there was in pulling it all together.

That said I do want to make contests here a regular thing. Any ideas peeps have on that front, types of contests, how to run them, what kind of prizes... feel free to share.

I was involved in a similar contest a long time ago. Meshers paid a fee to submit a mesh for the contest, (a room and furniture items in this case) usually around a theme. Out those mesher fees came the prizes. Multiple meshers would particpate in a single contest and I believe the entry fee was 20k if I remember right. The participating meshers would vote on the entries.

It wasn't a bad idea but I withdrew from participating because I felt the judging was not impartial given the entries that won -- it was pretty obvious.

I would suggest that voting be completely transparent, that the judges votes be made public to avoid the appearance of impropriety.
