    On a side note, would you mind leaving a summary of sorts to each of us winners of what the judging panel liked about each of our entries? It would be nice for note taking for the next decorating contest and look for info to improve with. Thanks, again!
    I concur that is an actually great idea. As a competitor, I am only aiming for first place. With such good competition all around, and people putting a lot of effort and being serious, it would be fair to know why the judges voted the way they did, what they were looking for, what differentiated 1st, 2nd and 3rd etc.

    I want to know the mind of the judges, see how they think. This is my personal subjectiveness speaking and by no way do I condone everyone else's entries as we all did great, but I personally thought the blood throne room, Halloween pumpkin patch, graveyard, and the blizzard entries would likely place in the top 3. If we could understand how the judges operate as a collective unit, then we could be more objective and detailed in our approach as to please the judges- otherwise to be honest in some sense this all feels like a lottery that I don't know how to feel about at the moment.

    Also, I would prefer, if possible, we have same judges for each decorating contest. Appealing to the same panel consistently means we know how to formulate and please the judges. If we have a different judging panel, that could lead to unnecessary variation- for example, if I was a judge in this contest I would probably list my preferences of winners differently (probably blizzard, graveyard, and pumpkin patch respectively as 1st, 2nd and 3rd- once again please note I do not condone other entries, this is just my personal opinion), and that could have changed the results. That is why I am suggesting to have the same judges all the time, so we don't have to worry about such changes. I know this is probably unfeasible, but if it's possible that would be preferred.

    Nonetheless, I would like to congratulate everyone on great entries! This was in my experience, the most fierce p101 competition in recent times that I have entered in.

    Cya next time,

    Re: 2018 Halloween Bunkhouse Decorating Contest

    One last thing, my autumn leaves mount reward is 7-days. I was under the impression that it was permanent and was excited to equip it whenever I desire, but I am quite sad about this. I think you should have specified that it was 7-days. If I had come second place, I would have likely gotten this mount due to my preference of rewards, thinking it was permanent, but would have been more disappointed then I am now. If I had known it was not permanent, and if I did rank higher, I would have preferred the hoodoo bundle or 10000 crowns prize instead.

    That is all.

    You're not the only one who was given the wrong impression. What was supposed to by my "companion prize code," turned out to be a few 7-day birthday mounts with an Ashes of the Armada pack instead of one companion. Something isn't sitting well with the prizes you and I received, and I ponder about the integrity of the awards we were given, especially since they're given to P101 Central by Kingsisle, themselves.

    This is utterly disgraceful. I am very disappointed at the current state of affairs. I at least hope Insurgent got his hoodoo bundle. Upon this my autumn leaves didnt even turn up in my gift box. But I am glad it didn't, I dont desire a temporary mount anyway.

    @Willowdreamer given what has happened in regards to prizes for me and @Crushcut and potentially even @insurgent8, can you please contact KI about this. This is not fair at all.

    Once again thanks for managing all this, and I hope KI responds appropriately.

    I've had that problem where the Nutcracker companion I won some time ago didn't show up in my Gift Box either. If your Gift Box becomes saturated with unclaimed items, then new gifts will not appear. I ended up redeeming some items, and my nutcracker shows up in my Gift Box. Maybe redeem some items from your Gift Box first, as this probably is just a simple display error.

    Re: 2018 Halloween Bunkhouse Decorating Contest

    First of all, as to the judging - there really isn't any way to assure the exact same judging panel every single time. When a contest ends, I recruit someone to help me determine the winners, and it's just a fact of life that the same people may or may not be available. Sometimes things are just subjective and trying to cater to some particular set of "guidelines" would only serve to squash the wonderful creativity you've all shown. I would NOT want you to think about how your ideas are going be viewed, rather, I enjoy seeing what you members can come up with on your own. If I said that the panel likes dragons, then every entry would have dragons and all be very much the same. We would not have seen dungeons and blizzards and pumpkin patches.

    @GoldenGuardian - I only wish I could award 10 different winners every time rather than having to choose only three, but when everyone is THIS GOOD, someone's good entry is not going to be a winner. Yes, the other entries you named are very good, and asking why the winners won instead of them is almost a rhetorical question. I'm not lying when I say that you members make it hard to determine winners and places -- it cannot be explained other than "choices were made."

    Finally, as to the prizes, we have been made aware that some of the prizes are not redeeming as intended. @Jester is working with @Bat Masterson about this, and we do hope to be able to resolve the issue. Please be patient rather than angry or disgusted.

    And, almost as a PS, @Crushcut is correct -- the gift box has a maximum number of display pages, so if you redeem some things from the top of your list, you should find additional items appearing.

    I was able to redeem the hoodoo bundle and companion with no complications.
    However, I was also wondering about the Autumn Leaves Mount. I won the mount from another one of the central contests, but it was also 7 days. I contacted CelestialMoon about it, but I have not gotten a response. Thanks again Willowdreamer!
