Winners Have Been Picked!

Hope you all enjoyed!


Hello People of SBN

I was reading a thread on the forums here, and someone wanted contests. They suggested a building
contest, and me being a builder I wanted to try one out. So here I am proposing a building contest
for you all!

Information On It
New Date: Sunday, August 28th. 4 PM EST.
The contest will go as follows:
You will be given a 30x30 area to build in on the day of the contest and you will have to create the build that will be given on that day (Hue hue, hiding the theme). You will have one hour to build the given theme, and then the builds will be evaluated by the judges. And of course, you will be provided with materials. The time designated will be when building begins, please arrive earlier then that as I will need to make sure that everyone is at the area. Late arrivals will be admitted however they will not be given extra time. Also make sure that it looks good in default, as that will be the texture it will be judged in.

Prizes!
Now then, I can't hold a contest without prizes now can I?
The prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
New Prizes!
1st Place will be awarded a rankup or if you can't be given a rankup (you're an MVP), you may give the rankup to another player. (If you don't want that we can work something out hopefully)
2nd place will be awarded with 250,000 multiplied by the amount of people that attend the event.
3rd place will be awarded half the amount of 2nd place.

Rules
I'm going to be laying down the law here, and if you break any of these you will be disqualified or worse.
1. Flying is strictly prohibited to give defaults and VIP's a fair chance against VIP+'s and higher.
2. Do not mess with other players (i.e. walking around their area if you finished and bothering them, etc.)
3. Do not build before time begins and do not build after time stops.
4. Only one person per plot, also do not build outside your assigned plot.
5. Do not use materials that have not been provided for you within the chests at each plot. (You may craft things with the blocks provided.)
6. Build team members are prohibited from participating, however they have been given the privilege to judge the builds along with me.

EVERYTHING HERE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE, PLEASE MAKE SURE TO LOOK AT THIS ONE MORE TIME BEFORE THE CONTEST BEGINS! THE DAY OF THE EVENT CAN CHANGE AS WELL.
That means rules, prizes, etc.


If you have any issues, I'd prefer it if you sent me (Axewarrior) a conversation here on the forums.

Also please say if you will be participating here, as I would like to make sure I have set up enough plots for people to build in.

I've posted this before, but word needs to get around. Things work differently, and we didn't scam donors out of their money, kit balances will come soon.

The way kitpvp ranking works, is that you get more money dependant on your rank. Donators rank up faster, meaning they do get more money indirectly. VIP gets 125% xp, VIP+ gets 150% and MVP gets 175%. The more you rank up the more money you get per kill, as listed below.
Lvl: 0-50=$1
51-100=$1.5
101-200=1.75
201-300=$2
301-400=2.25
401-500=$2.50
501-600=$2.75
601-800=$3
801-900=$3.25
901-999=3.50

Once again we reach a new month on the Shadowblockz server, which of course means more staffing changes. We'll start with the sad news, and get that over and done with. Due to both players having much less time to play on the server and moderate recently, we are saying a fond farewell to both @Samii and @Powelus . I'd like to personally thank them both for the hard work they've put into this place, and hope to still see them around sometimes in game.

Now, as we say goodbye to some staff, this opens a window for new players to step up into a new role of server moderation; and so it is with great pleasure that I welcome @GummieBear047 and @EverFell into the position of Helper this month. Make sure to congratulate them if you see them in game, and remember, the first few weeks are always the hardest. While i'm sure there'll be no issues, i'd like to remind players that the helper position is designed to ease players into the concepts of moderation and help them settle in.

Although i usually lock these, I'll end this thread with a question: What would you like to see the build team revamp? We have new spawns for most servers, but is there anything you think looks dated and could use a refresh?
