Welcome to the Lifestyles of Nexus IV: A New Home housing competition.
(Instead of A New Hope! ... Well, at least I thought it was funny...)
The Black Dagger Society is once again running a Lifestyles of Nexus housing competition! This competition is a chance for you to show off your hard work and awesomeness to everyone else on our server and the internet. You might even win some shiny shiny Lopp-approved plat!
It's been a few months since we did one of these, so we figured it was about time to see what folks have been able to come up with since March! I mean, you're ready, right?
If you're interested in entering your housing plot in the competition, please post the following information in a reply to this thread no later than August 7th.
The full name of the character who owns the SkyPlot (we need this to get to the plot to visit it)
The name of your main (if it's an alt) or who you want your prize sent to if you win
Your faction (Exile or Dominion)
The name of the SkyPlot itself
Whether you want to give the judges a tour of your plot (we will TRY to accomodate this, but we can't guarantee it).
Anything you want to tell us about your plot.
During the first two weeks of August, our team of judges will visit all the plots that were entered in the competition and choose winners in the following categories for each faction:
Best Overall - 7 Plat Prize
Best Theme - 5 Plat Prize
Best Indoor - 5 Plat Prize
Best Outdoor - 5 Plat Prize
Most Unique - 5 Plat Prize
IMPORTANT: In order for us to visit your house to judge the submission, your skyplot MUST be set to Public before August 7th. If we can't visit a skyplot due to restrictions, it will be disqualified.
Judges will contact you at their own discretion, but will mainly be available between 5pm PST/8pm EST and 10pm PST/1am EST on weeknights August 2-14. Please try to accommodate these times to the best of your ability. Some judges prefer to get in touch via tells, and others via in-game mail. Some may be available on the weekend at various times. It all depends on the judge, but we wanted to set a time to help prevent confusion. Judges will no longer visit houses after Friday August 14 so that we can discuss winners and have everything ready to announce that weekend!
Winners will be announced on the forums either August 15th or 16th, and prizes will be mailed to plot owners in game. Like last time, we will put together a post of winners, and take self-guided video tours of the winning plots that will be loaded onto YouTube! We will also be putting together a grand list of all participants, and talking about how awesome your plots were, so you may want to make sure to leave them public for a while so that everyone else can visit them too and see for yourselves.
We hope that everyone who takes pride in their skyplot will enter this contest! There's a lot of really good ones out there, and who knows - you just might win something nice in recognition of what you've built!

Q: What are the prizes?
A: Prizes for each category are detailed above, and are straight-up Platinum!
Q: Is this open to both factions?
A: Yes! Like last time, Daggers have characters in both factions who can do the judging, so our judges can check out both Dominion and Exile plots!
Q: I won last time. Am I eligible to participate again?
A: Yes. While we debated putting a restriction on winners, we decided that most people have improved or completely re-done their plots. Next time, we have something else up our sleeves for previous winners!
Q: I'm a member of the Black Dagger Society. Can I enter my skyplot in the competition?
A: Yes, as long as you yourself are not a judge for the event.
Q: I'm on a server other than Entity. Can I enter my skyplot?
A: Unfortunately not at this time. We don't have the ability to visit skyplots on all the servers for judging, so this contest is limited to skyplots on the Entity server only. We do hope that Warhound and the EU servers host similar competitions as well!
Q: Wait, this is the fourth competition?
A: Indeed! You can find our previous winners for the first (Dominion/Exile), second, and thirdcompetitions on the forums.
Q: I have a question not addressed here.
A: Feel free to get in touch with Chestnut on the forums (WSChestnut) or Exile side at Chestnut Stonebough. She's also available readily on Twitter when not in-game.
