Summer Galactic Home Show

#1

Post by Cozdragon » Wed Jul 06, 2022 11:58 am

Welcome to the Summer Galactic Home Decorating competition.

The theme is: Birthday Celebration. You are free to choose any building type, any idea within that theme, and then decorate to your heart’s content. You could choose to enter a house that’s already decorated, partly decorated or start a new one from scratch. Your idea of a perfect birthday celebration could be a night out on the town, spending time with close friends in nature, or a quiet night in curled up by the fire or something else entirely – whichever you choose is fine, but you will need to decorate a space to reflect that. There is no minimum / maximum item requirement in a building, and players may choose to use all or part of a building without penalty, as long as it is visually blocked off.

As always, the SR staff will judge the entries, however, if a member of staff chooses to participate, they will be excluded from the judging panel. Please read the criteria and questions for judges carefully so that you know exactly what staff are looking for. We have expanded this area in response to player and staff feedback, so apologies for the ‘words’ however we are trying to ensure that the process is transparent.

If you wish to enter a building, please contact Coz with the waypoint, planet, building name, and player/discord name. You could do this via: the forum post, or by direct messaging in discord. Entries will need to be submitted by Wednesday August 3rd at 11.59pm PDT. (Thursday 4th August 7.59am BST, or 2.59am EDT)

Judging Information:

The houses are numbered in the order that the applications are received. A random number generator is used to order the houses for the viewing route given to players and staff.

All judges are asked to ensure that they turn sound on, check spatial chats for call outs or commentaries by player toons or vendors. They are expected to click on items to check whether there is additional relevant information in bio’s, vendor stocks etc. They are reminded not to access the structure management terminal to see who owns the building. Each judge submits their scores privately to Coz. These are then collated and held privately until they are all submitted. They are then made available to the senior team for checking.



The criteria for this contest will be as follows:

Creativity
– Judges will look at how items are used. This is about using items in unusual ways to create an effect, or an item. This is also about how space is used in the house – this may include making the decision to create additional spaces, or not to include all the rooms and how these areas are made or blocked off.

Questions staff will consider:
  • Have items been used for their intended purpose or repurposed? Repurposing items in a creative way will gain more points. E.g. using wood staffs to create a prison cell.
    Have smaller items been used in coordination with others to make a new item entirely?
    Has space in the house been used in a creative way to explore the theme?


Theme – Points are awarded for reflecting the theme and how it is maintained through the house. The theme this time is Birthday Celebration. You may wish to include items that give a backstory to the theme, use vendors, etc to help clarify what judges are seeing.

Questions staff will consider:
  • Does the decoration fit the theme?
    How strongly is the theme reflected in the house?
    Are the items in the house named in a way to echo/support the theme?


Overall Feel – Judges will consider the impression and impact of the building and how they contribute to the atmosphere created. Be sure to consider renaming items to help with this. You may also wish to use vendors etc.

Questions staff will consider:
  • Have items been renamed to contribute to the environment?
    Have all house areas been decorated to reflect the theme?
    Is the space clearly organized so that you are able to view elements?
    Are spaces not being used blocked appropriately?


Each house will be judged against all three criteria and can score a maximum of 10 points per section and then totaled to give a score out of 30. Each judge’s house scores are then added together. Houses are ranked from highest to lowest overall score to select the first, second and third place prizes.

UPDATE

Given the restart etc…I’m going to alter the closing times for the Galactic Home Show and the taxi set up slightly as my original plan now won’t work. Please note revised timings:

1. All houses for judging should now be submitted by Thursday 4th August 5pm BST, 12 noon EDT, 9am PDT.

2. The taxi route will be set up as soon as possible after this time – I’d anticipate about an hour later.

3. Voting time for staff will commence once the taxies are up and running.
