It's Octoberrrrr! How fun was the first day of the Month?! And we're JUST getting started! We loved seeing everyone's enthusiasm and excitement as little features around the site started to morph in to the fall season! There were a total of 808 wall posts, 1,102 wall comments and 8,648 updoots Thursday! To put this into perspective: there are an average of 400 wall posts, 550 comments, and 5,000 likes a day. We nearly doubled in each category!

In addition to the non-competitive spooptober event, we've also launched an official project contest as well as an official skin contest! Together with all of the Tober prompt lists and Community Events - well, let's just say it's going to a busy and fun month!!


OFFICIAL EVENTS AND CONTESTS


NEW!


COMMUNITY EVENT
Spooooopy dooopy do! In this official non-competitive community event, you can submit up to 5 Halloween Themed creations! Non-competitive means no competition! Purely for fun. Read all of the Event rules here and if you have any questions, visit this forum thread!

NOTE: If you change your profile to be Halloween/Autumn themed, tag PMC or comment in this forum thread. We will add you to a list!

Deadline: November 1

NEW!
PROJECT CONTEST

The goal is simple:Create a structure that fits within the dimensions of one chunk (16x16 blocks). It can be as tall as 3 blocks, or as gigantic as 255 blocks, but it must be contained within one chunk. Nothing can extrude beyond these dimensions--looking at you, trees!

Download the starter map here!


Deadline
: October 26


NEW!
PLAYER SKIN CONTEST


As miners spend countless hours gathering precious and semi precious resources from underground, they find themselves suiting up for or even evolving to their cave surroundings. Let's create skins that feel appropriate underground. Maybe the next time you're mining you'll find yourself dressing for the occasion or never seeing the light of day again! Use this description as inspiration or search for some on/offline to create a skin for the Miners and Cave Dwellers Player Skin Contest!

Deadline: October 26



RESULTS


Winners have been announced for the Mythical Creatures Mob skin Contest! Congratulations to the winners and a big thank you to all that participated! View the final leaderboard here and all of the entries here!

COMMUNITY EVENTS AND CONTESTS




NEW!
Mob Skintober being hosted by OneCord is exactly how it sounds - instead of using player skins, you must use mob skins! You can choose a different mob skin model every day if you prefer.

Deadline: October 31
So you've heard of Mob Skintober and Skintober but have you heard of Drawtober?! Drawtober is DinowCookie's take on the event and is challenging you to digitally or traditionally draw something each day for the month of October!

Deadline: October 31
Trick or Treat! In this event being hosted by Kirigiri your task is to choose an oc from one of your fellow skinners to give a freaky fabulous Halloween makeover and costume to! The contest states:
'Will you trick them with something scary and silly or treat them with something cute and sweet it' up to you! Make sure to give three hints as to who the original oc is in the description and once the oc is guessed correctly @ the original creator so they can see the beautiful skin you made for them!"

Deadline
: November 1
You can surely create a spoopy skin with the colors in the palette to the left! RainyAcadia45 is hosting a palette contest!. No other Shading or colors are allowed and you must only use player skins!

Deadline:
November 25

TRENDING ON REDDIT
Mrblueyeti's pack went trending on reddit this week! Their Better Wolves pack is a standalone version of their Better Dogs resource pack. The wolves pack updates the wolves to look more realistic and includes 3 different textures. The better dogs pack adds 15 dog breeds, each comin in at least 2 varieties.

The reddit thread currently has over 45,000 upvotes and over 250 comments!


Are you new to PMC? Or, perhaps, you've been here a while and you'd like a bigger audience, but no matter what you do, you can't seem to be "seen"? After months of work, TomConn finally released his guide on How to gain an Audience! The guide comes complete with custom characters and pictures and is really easy to follow along. It covers how to figure out what good/bad content ideas are, how to best choose content ideas that will work for you as well as the community, how to make a good title for your content, and more!

There appears to be a typo in the section about How to Gain an Audience - "really east to follow along" instead of "easy".
