Official Contest Central Changes

Hello.

With the update, we lost some things and we fought to have some back. We are still fighting (avatars), but it is time to announce some changes:

HTML Custom Usertitle

New price!!!


We lost this prize after the update. After a couple of months, it's back, pricer. Now, instead of it costing 3 CC points a month, it's now 10 CC points.

New size is max 174 x 80 and file size (this is also important) is max 249kb.
It continues to have 70 characters to code.
Edit (Jan 13, 2020): it was changed for 100 characters to code.

It is a prize that only Admins can activate. Each time you change the code, an admin has to approve it, so tag @Rinoa in the Café Prize Thread.

Also, do not abuse putting oversized stuff there.

HTML Custom Usertitle Extensions:

Members who bought HTML Custom Usertitle before the update will get it back + extensions:
Expired in November: Around +1 month
Expired in December: Around +2 months

New Prize

Now, costing 3 CC points for a month, there is the Coloured Custom Username. With that, you will have access to a colour palette. Bold and italics don't work with this prize, only colours.

Also, this prize do not work along HTML usertitle.

So after those changes, the current prize menu is this one:

1 Month
Coloured Custom Usertitle - 3 Points
Sparkles - 5 Points
HTML Usertitle - 10 Points
175x350 Avatar - 12 Points
---
2 Months
Coloured Custom Usertitle - 5 Points
Sparkles - 7 Points
HTML Usertitle - 14 Points
175x350 Avatar - 17 Points
---
3 Months
Coloured Custom Usertitle - 7 Points
Sparkles - 9 Points
HTML Usertitle - 17 Points
175x350 Avatar - 21 Points
---
Extra Name Change - 18 Points


Image sizes

Just as HTML Custom Usertitles max size file is 249kb, entries for graphic contests in GotW are also following this pattern. This is related to copyright issues and fair use laws.

CC Points

Master List
is updated with Participation Points of June-October period:

There is a new thread to help you all to keep track of your received points per month:

Other NF Contests

There os also another new thread to keep track of contests in other sections:


As I mentioned, we are still fighting to get avatars the way they were before the update, at least regarding optimization. We ask you to continue to give your feedback in the main Update Thread. Just remember to stay respectful there, please.

Hey @Majin Lu hope you are doing well, I know last year has been a bit mad but I was just wondering if we will ever see the return of holiday contests at some point again in the future?

Hey! I hope we return with them, even Elusive Prizes, I just don't know when. Things are getting changed here and new forum name is one of them. The new EU copyright laws are affecting anything! It depends on "you know who"...

Now about the fun part of the event, being active and having fun, I'm most on mobile (data) for some months and when I get in a laptop (like right now) is when I take care of some stuff that needs one. I think I'll be fully back in 1 month.

What are photo and graphic of the week?
Contests of photos taken by members and graphics created by members following themes:


why the change, just curious?
For some time already and for many reaons, there is a decrease in activity in contests.

For now, since the demand is low, making each contest in a different weak maybe will help with those members with schedule problems, at least.

Now, about changing the deadlines to Saturdays, there are 2 reasons: first is that now, with a new theme flash on mind, members will have the other day (Sunday) to take a picture/start to create a graphic. The other reason is that I've started a degree and I have classes Mon-Sat, so I wish to have Sundays to rest.
