Blog Contest : "Minedeas : Minecraft Idea Contest"



Welcome to the second PMC blog contest!

In this contest, the task is to come up with Minecraft modification ideas and explain why they would make the game better.

1. Describe your Minecraft Modification Idea.





a) Clearly describe the purpose of your Minecraft modification idea.
b) Explain / Illustrate how your idea would actually work in game. Include any crafting recipes, concept art, potential game play stories, etc.
c) Very important!: Justify your reasoning behind how and why your idea would improve upon Minecraft. Really think about the affect your modification will have on the game and address any potential concerns.

It may help to imagine you're describing every detail of your idea to a Minecraft modder. The more thought out your modification idea the more support you're going to receive from the community and who knows, maybe your idea will inspire a modder to make it a reality.

Judging Criteria:
1) Concept and ingenuity

Marks go towards how good the idea is and how well it could improve the game.
The originality and uniqueness of your idea is also a big factor - come up with something no-one has thought of before!

2) Quality and presentation

You will be judged on the quality of your writing and the presentation of your idea.
Clearly lay out your blog and consider using images, videos and concept art to illustrate your idea.

3) Analysis and reasoning

Explain how your change would affect the game and justification for why it would create such an improvement.
Your justification comprises a large proportion of the marks!

2. Ideas must be original and for this contest.


Do not use any images, text, videos or other media that you did not create yourself.
Do not use ideas or concepts that already exist e.g. future updates, current Minecraft mods etc. We want you to come up with a new and unique idea that YOU have thought of!
You may use videos to help you illustrate points, however the majority of marks are awarded based on the written description and analysis.

No plagiarism! If you copy and paste, you're doing it wrong. Do not post existing mods, from this site or others. This including your own past work. Give the community something fresh and original.

3. One entry per person.



Each user will only be permitted to submit one post for this contest. You may edit your one entry as long as the contest is still running. If you decide to change your submission at any point, you are free to do so. However, you should not delete your original entry. Instead, use the "update submission" button to save the changes.

4. The contest will run for three weeks.



Post dates must be made after today's date, December 3rd, 2012 @ 12:00 PM EST. The contest will end about three weeks from today, on December 24th, 2012 @ 12:00 PM EST Posts submitted after this date will not be accepted.

5. Take your time and have fun!



Remember, you have weeks to do this. You don't need to put something up right away - and even if you chose to, you're allowed to update your submission as many times as you want before the final close date of December 24th, 2012 @ 12:00 PM EST.

All of the normal rules of the site still apply in this contest.

Do not rush yourself to get something in immediately. This contest is not a random drawing - the submissions are judged by a panel of judges. It will not help you to submit anything less than fantastic, so take your time. If you notice that other users have submitted something better than yours, edit and update your own submission to make it even better!

Phase #1: Entry Period : ~3 weeks



This is the time that everyone has to create and submit a contest entry. During this time, judges are reviewing entries, anonymously voting and disqualifying those that don't meet the contest requirements. The PMC community is doing the same by giving diamonds, feedback, etc.

Phase #2: Review Period : 2 days



After submissions are closed, judges get 2 additional days to review late entries and cast their final votes. Their votes are heavily weighted in an algorithm that includes the community's votes and activity to determine the finalists.

Phase #3: Finalists Calculated : Judging criteria



After the finalists are calculated, judges begin anonymously rating each entry based on the following criteria on a scale of 1-10:

1) Concept and ingenuity


Marks go towards how good the idea is and how well it could improve the game.
The originality and uniqueness of your idea is also a big factor - come up with something no-one has thought of before!

2) Quality and presentation

You will be judged on the quality of your writing and the presentation of your idea.
Clearly lay out your blog, and include images, videos and concept art to illustrate your idea.

3) Analysis and reasoning

Explain how your change would affect the game and justification for why it would create such an improvement.
Your justification comprises a large proportion of the marks!

Once the site detects that all judges have cast their ratings on all finalists, the winners are announced.
