Listen, I'm not saying everyone who doesn't know what "Apocalypse" means is stupid. I'm saying that SOME people JUST don't understand the meaning of it. I'm pretty sure of it. I'm sure some of y'all have seen some entries that DO NOT go with the contest theme. Like for instance, "Clown". Seriously? Does a clown has to do with a contest that's based off of the end of the New Testament? NO. It doesn't. And "muscle man". That doesn't either. And I even saw a super hero skin in the entries. Which is understandable A LITTLE BIT. Cause the last skin contest was about super heroes and super villains, so that's a "small" mistake that someone can make, but it can still cost the winning chance of the contest. Here is the meaning of "Apocalypse":

From Answers.com :

1. Apocalypse (Abbr. Apoc.) Bible. The Book of Revelation.

2. Any of a number of anonymous Jewish or Christian texts from around the second century B.C. to the second century A.D. containing prophetic or symbolic visions, especially of the imminent destruction of the world and the salvation of the righteous.

3. Great or total devastation; doom: the apocalypse of nuclear war.

4. A prophetic disclosure; a revelation.

From Merriam-Webster.com :



a : one of the Jewish and Christian writings of 200 b.c. to a.d. 150 marked by pseudonymity, symbolic imagery, and the expectation of an imminent cosmic cataclysm in which God destroys the ruling powers of evil and raises the righteous to life in a messianic kingdom b capitalized : revelation3

2
a : something viewed as a prophetic revelation b : armageddon

3
: a great disaster <an environmental apocalypse>

As you can see, a clown has nothing to do with Revelations! Nor does a muscle man.
I'm not saying your skins are horrible. I'm just saying that if you're not that sure what the meaning of a word (for example: Apocalypse,) is, then you should look it up. Or look at the entries FIRST. And if you're STILL clueless, look up the word. It's really not that hard if you have a dictionary. Or just go online. In places like Answers, Merriam Webster, Wikipedia! These are all good places to look. Or ask your parents. (Unfortunately, sometimes parents just don't know the answer OR they want you to look it up yourself. But looking it up really shouldn't be that hard. We can all look up things! Cause sometime in the future, maybe, JUST maybe someone will say that word you never bothered to look up when you were younger, and THEN you may have a problem. And (different example) what if someone NEEDS to know right then what that word meant, and you don't have something to look it up with? It's better to know the meaning of a word then to not sometimes. (But if your younger, your parents may not want you to know the meaning of a word. More than likely if it's a bad word.) But please guys! This will make it easier for others, and most certainly for you.

Please Diamond, Comment, and Subscribe if you agree with me in this. (Fave is good, too.) Thank you so much for taking your time to read this. Hope it helped somehow. :)

PLAGIARISM! YOU COPIED OFF OF A DICTIONARY! Lol joking. Still an awesome blog. I didn't really understand why they put those skins there, and the amount of slendy skin in the August contest was so much it's not even funny.

I was reading the bible and started on Genesis as you would do, and half way through (at the book at Job more specifically) I realised what a massive turd God was, but I kept reading. After the 4 books of Q, John, Matthew, Luke and Mark, I was convinced that God actually does love us and isn't as backstabbing/sexist/unforgiving/sadistic and Super-Racist as I thought, happier I decide to read on, finally I reached Revelations, and then reading the last page I realised that this God was the same one from the Old Testament, except now he hates Jews as well as everyone else, nice...

And that's how the Bible itself turned me atheist

G-d doesn't hate people. He just sometimes lets things happen. You could picture it like a race. In a race, there are sometimes obstacles, right? So~ the same with life--there are obstacles. G-d loves us all. He does. But He doesn't do things like, "Oh! There's <Person>! Let's do this to make them feel bad/worse!". He just lets things happen so we can learn to trust in Him at all times.

I'm not trying to change the way that you think. You have freedom to believe if there are princess unicorns or not. (In otherwords, you can believe whatever you wish to believe.) I'm not in control of you. All I'm saying is G-d loves everyone no matter what. Sometimes, it seems like He hates us, but what He really hates is sin. Not us.

My religion teacher, who is a total christian BTW, also dislikes the Old Testament God as she thinks good slaughtering egyptians in Exodus, or torturing Job was horrible

He killed Egyptians to protect His people. And the pharaoh was evil. What do YOU think the Egyptians were doing to the Jews? They were imprisoning them as slaves! Some were whipped, and all of the baby boys were killed! (Btw, I didn't read the thing about Job yet, so I'll get there...)

He wasn't rude or anything like that. I don't quite understand you too much. (Dang. =w=) So~ uh.............

Yes the pharaoh was evil, but the innocent working class who killed by the plauges and death to the first borns,

The story of Job goes something like this

But I did not mean to offend anyone, so I'm sorry

Also in all fairness the Jewish religion DOES focus around the power of god and has the term ×¤× × × × × × × × × × × × × ×ª× × × × × × × ×¨× or fear in god is the path to enlightenment
Jesus however taught values of peace, forgiveness and love, and even if I don't believe he was the son of god I do believe he was a good person

So true... It's like the time I asked a load of people what "Juggernaut" is. Everyone I asked immediately associated it with an armoured man, with a gun, from Call of Duty! -.- So, I decide to prove them wrong, or at least prove their shortsightedness. The verdict?... I proved them wrong.

Personally, I think that them entering the contest is just an easy way to get views, and xp. Irrelevant skins should just be removed from the contest at least.

Some/most people putting in there skins in these contests just put in random stuff even if it has nothing to do with it for either
A. The participation badge
or
B. That small chance of winning(maybe if all the judges hate clowns)

I was thinking the same thing! Half the finalists are monsters or zombies. Just because its an apocalypse does not mean its a zombie apocalypse. There are only about a handful of creative ones...Not trying to hate on anyone though.
