I voted for 2x2 - but a question - will the size parameters determine what we are voting on in the upcoming weeks or would the next set of choices be the same regardless of the size the community selects
yes im kidding, i dont know myself either, and i dont like it also that not everyone who wants to get it, will be able to get it. at least thats what i understand under contest. but we will see, maybe its a weekly contest and lots of people can get it in time.I know you kid, but that's just it, there are a lot of different contest set ups
1. Everyone who shows up gets a % chance of getting a prize
2. Everyone who completes a specific task gets a prize
3. The first contestant to do a task is the only one who gets a prize (or first 10 /20 etc)
and many more.
Personally unless it's #2, I don't think I'll like it.
On US live the CM said it's a prize for forums contests, the last of which was for people to make up an Elvenar Holiday. The top 5 as chosen behind the scenes were revealed to the players and voted on. I disliked this for a few reasons
1. Linking a non-elvenar skill like creative writing to prizes is a little off.
2. The top 5 were chosen by ___? No one knows, but I'm guessing they weren't professional writers, or English professors.
3. Once the top 5 were revealed and a poll was made, it became a popularity contest ( I got messages from more than one of them asking for my vote)
Maybe other servers have better contests?
i agree with you that its like deciding which direction to walk in the dark. and i doubt my answer on poll 1 will be still the same after i have seen the result of poll 3I'm not sure how we are supposed to make an informed vote with no information or discussion.
It's like asking us to pick the color of a new vehicle, when we don't know if it is going to be a bicycle, a train, or a 747. Also we have no idea what the vehicle will cost, how many will be available etc etc.
I love that Inno is trying to involve the players in a decision, but this is falling under the same category as when Timon says "We are doing something, but can't tell you what, or when"
If we can't discuss the subject of a community based building when discussing the size of a community based building, then this thread should only be a poll, and be completely locked to comments.
After all, what possible comments are there on shape? (and it is shape, not size since they are all 4 square options) 1x4 and 4x1 are very very much the same thing, and 2x2 is only slightly different in that it can be buffed, and in theory needs a little more road.
Some players will feel that a 2x2 is easier to place, and some players will think a 1x4/4x1 is easier.
Having players post "I like 2x2 better because it is easier to fit" or "I like 1x4 because it is easier to fit" repeatedly is rather redundant when the poll already reflects those opinions.
So as I said if we could stay on topic by voting for which size you would prefer that would be lovely and you will make me a very happy bunny
Well this is good to know. The idea behind this new community-based building is to reward the people who are active members of the Forums.No, we're not creating entirely new buildings just for 1 or 2 players but the exact ways to obtain it, will become more clear in the future. The idea behind it, is to reward the people who are not only players, but active members of our communities
