    It's time to start a new monthly build competition!

    Build competitions are done on a special FLATLANDS world map and in CREATIVE MODE! In that world you're able to build anything you want, and even fly! Inventories are separate from the survival world, so you cannot transfer items.

    Theme: Something Spooky!

    Competition is over! Vote for your favorite here: October 2016 Build Contest VOTING NOW OPEN

    Since Halloween is this month we want you to create something spooky and creepy! Use vines, spiderwebs, and pumpkins to make a spooky house - or maybe create Count Dracula's castle? It's up to you and the winner will be determined by top vote from forum members who cast a vote.​

    RULES:
    1. Competition begins October 1, 2016 and ends October 31, 2016
    2. On October 31 or November 1, staff will take screenshots of the completed builds and post them to the forums to be voted on by you and other server members. This is an open vote!
    3. Only builds in the special world will count towards the competition. Use command /contest to teleport there. (This world will only be available on October 1 through October 31, 2016)
    4. Please place a sign in front of your build with your name on it so we know who built it!
    5. Do not build below bedrock.
    6. Votes for best build will take place on the forums. Make sure you have an account to vote with!
    7. Voting will open November 1 and close November 7, 2016
    8. drsprite and the Admins are exempt from competition and cannot submit a build.
    9. Greifers will be disqualified and banned! We utilize block logging data and can tell if competition builds have been tampered with.
    10. Building anything offensive will result in disqualification and/or a ban from the server.
    11. We know creative can be fun, but please keep your builds consistent with the theme!

    The winner will receive 2,500 in-game dollars AND GOLD DONATION RANK FOR 1 WEEK! For more info on the Gold Rank, click here!​

    If you have a question, please see a member of staff!

    Good luck everyone!

    Though as admin I can't participate in the competition, I'm still going to build something just for the fun of it!

    We don't. We'll be using a flat map, which is 5 blocks deep to bedrock (so no basements in this competition). Nothing else to show or do! Everyone will need to find a chunk of land on the flat map suitable to their build and then go at it!

    Due to the recent griefing from new players who just want to join and cause havoc, the competition is now whitelisted!

    In order to build in the competition you must reply to this thread!

    All previous builders who have started a building have been whitelisted automatically.

    The griefing that has taken place in the competition arena has been rolledback. Everything should be back to normal.
