2006-07-05 [kay-chan]: Do I have to turn this wiki around? :P

2006-07-05 [iippo]: Stop the wiki, I need the bathroom!

2006-07-05 [Kaimee]: Kaykay, I think perhaps that you do :P

2006-07-05 [moira hawthorne]: hehehehe =D

2006-07-05 [kay-chan]: I told you to go before we chatted! *shakes head* You crazy children... -.-;

2006-07-05 [Jitter]: Are we there yet?

2006-07-05 [kay-chan]: ...yes. Yes, we are already there. *pokes the air about Kaimee* I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you! :D (I couldn't be the voice of reason for very long...)

2006-07-05 [moira hawthorne]: my reason rolled under the seat... and the dog barfed on it... can we roll down the windows? my seatbelt is too tight! help my legs have fallen asleep!

2006-07-05 [Jitter]: Oh cool since we're already there I'm gonna have some cotton candy now

2006-07-06 [kay-chan]: "My reason rolled under the seat"? ^.^;; I need to find my purpose! ...oh, there it is. Under the couch cushion. That shoulda been the first place I looked.

2006-07-06 [moira hawthorne]: you were sitting on your purpose! hehehehe

2006-07-06 [iippo]: It fell from above and rolled under your seat.

2006-07-06 [Kaimee]: My god kay, that was annoying even from so very far away. I'm gonna have to use that on someone sometime.. >:3

2006-07-06 [kay-chan]: :D glaaaad to help, eh?

2006-07-06 [Jitter]: Random spam and bragging: I won 2nd place in a contest ^_^ Oh and This: Faerie's Party needs 5 more entries

2006-07-07 [iippo]: If the contest you came in second is listed here, would you mind faffing the wiki and putting it under "winners announced"? :D

2006-07-07 [Cia_mar]: well ther is interest in the cliche' contest but still no entries...*sigh* *begs* please enter soon!

2006-07-07 [BinaryPhoenix]: My stupid pc won't open it because of the "é " in The Cliché Contest  :'(

2006-07-07 [Cia_mar]: the cliche' contest try that

2006-07-07 [Saffron]: ééééé XD €¼½¾‘’¥×¬¡²³äåé®þüúíóö«»áßðø¶´æ©ñµç¿ lol (don't mind me)

2006-07-07 [moira hawthorne]: how did you do that?

2006-07-07 [Jitter]: alt+numpad

2006-07-07 [moira hawthorne]: ☺♀{♫ôô☼ƒ:bWUA$?46☼♫↕‼►♪ ▼#"%&' some of these are not nessiary as they are all ready on the keyboard... and randomly hitting the number pad is time consuming

2006-07-07 [moira hawthorne]: © is the☺one ... zz◙☺©

2006-07-07 [Jitter]: ☺♀{♫ôô☼ƒ:bWUA$?46☼♫↕‼►♪ ▼#"%&' I don't have these

2006-07-07 [Cia_mar]: mine doesn't do that either?

2006-07-07 [Cia_mar]: cool!

2006-07-07 [Cia_mar]: well see you next week!

2006-07-07 [Jitter]: Cya Cia!

2006-07-07 [moira hawthorne]: I want to know how to get é ¼ ½ ¾ ² ³ æ as well as the degree sign

2006-07-08 [iippo]: And Alt codes

2006-07-12 [shotokan_gal]: Erm, does anyone on this page object to anyone moving contests to their correct sections? *spots quite a few in the wrong places*

2006-07-12 [shotokan_gal]: *goes ahead and does so anyway* Someone can sue me later if I mess up :P

2006-07-12 [iippo]: Quoth top of the page: "And if you see a contest in the wrong section, please move it!" :D

2006-07-12 [shotokan_gal]: Oops... must be blind today X) Edit: I think that's all, that I know about anyway (sorry to the watchers for the multiple editings)

2006-07-20 [Perplexity]: Artists - go sign up for the battle royale! =) We need some more contestants at The Hit List


2006-07-21 [Blade Chick]: It's mine, a very old peice. I'm flattered that you still like it.

2006-07-22 [Kaimee]: Can't say it had ever caught my attention before, glad you found the artist so quickly :) What good luck.

2006-07-25 [Chrilith of Akhai]: Elftown house contest still has three entries left! One might just be yours...

2006-07-25 [Iron-Man-429]: would anyone be interested in a video game art contest im just checking to see how much interest there is out there

2006-07-26 [Alfirin Lindlea]: I'd watch it, but I can't draw so wouldn't enter :P

2006-07-26 [iippo]: I'd enter Iron-Man (time allowing). But there once was a Fighting Game Contest where people drew characters from games like Mortal Kombat and similar... Fighting Game Fan Art Contest. I'm sure there's been other ones, (I recall seeing Sonics and Marios in contests). Nothing prevents you from holding one too, but it will be boring if those same people enter their old work to the new contest too.

2006-07-27 [og_ghost]: It depends on what kind of video game art. I wouldn't enter a Metroid Prime contest. I probably would enter a Devil May Cry contest.

2006-07-27 [Iron-Man-429]: well it would be all video games

2006-07-29 [Lady of Lore]: Hmm...I'd lke to enter but it depends on the limitations...not sure what character i'd use but would love to try ^_^

2006-07-31 [BinaryPhoenix]: South Park Art Contest - enter, you know you want to...

2006-08-01 [xxxecil]: Fantasy Amazon Art Contest!!! I propose a contest in honor of the mysterious, powerful warrior-babes of legend - using Elftown fantasy races. why not an art competition featuring your own fantastic version of the Amazon! We can use any of the themes from previous contests; (female elves, taurs, drow, etc.) I'd host it myself, but I'm disqualified from my own competition, and I'd like to participate in one like this. Any takers?

2006-08-04 [Lady of Lore]: Love to! ^_^

2006-08-04 [moira hawthorne]: ooo you are gonna hold the contest [Lady of Lore] ???

2006-08-04 [Lady of Lore]: I think I may, I 'll have to make a page of it though so a bit of patience ^_^

2006-08-04 [moira hawthorne]: there is a link just above the comment box... the page just has to be writen up...

2006-08-04 [Lady of Lore]: yup but to make the actual contest stuff will take me a bit of time

2006-08-04 [moira hawthorne]: yesyes... willing to wait... just awesome there will be that contest! it sounds like fun!

2006-08-04 [iippo]: But... The Amazon Art Contest hasn't finished yet either, has it? o.O

2006-08-04 [moira hawthorne]: ooooooooooooooooo I didnt notice that one... hummmm... only one more space for an artist...

2006-08-04 [Cia_mar]: yeah i saw that too!

2006-08-09 [Cia_mar]: Character Contest
by [ange7snow]
dealine undecided.
this contest ended a while ago!

2006-08-09 [shotokan_gal]: You can move it to closed or winners announced I think, when the owner hasn't.

2006-08-09 [Cia_mar]: ok... i just was a participant but i didn't want to do something i shouldn't

2006-08-09 [Kuehne]: any charcoal or graphite artists out there?? Sketchy Characters Competition

2006-08-16 [Cia_mar]: here is a new one that i hope will have some success! Cia's "Color Me" Contest

2006-08-16 [Lothuriel]: I would like to advertise a few contests here but, my silly computer won't comply with wiki editing today. Anyone want to be a peach and advertise, Who Wants to be a Super Hero? deadline 30 entires, Star Wars A New Contest deadline not set; Flight of the Phoenix No Deadline Set; Comic Genius Deadline October 1, 2006...Please?

2006-08-16 [shotokan_gal]: Added them for you :) (though who wants to be a super hero was already there)

2006-08-16 [Lothuriel]: oh, thank you. I guess my editing did work. I hate whenthat happens...

2006-08-17 [Cia_mar]: can i add cia's contests to the section about people who have contest wikis with multiple contest listings?

2006-08-20 [Jitter]: twin contest Needs more! 6 in Photo and 3 in Art!

2006-08-22 [Saffron]: [cia-mar] go ahead

2006-08-22 [Mia the mermaid22]: The badges, How does someone make them for the contests?

2006-08-22 [Jitter]: you make them yourself on photoshop or similar program

2006-08-22 [Cia_mar]: thanks!

2006-08-29 [Lothuriel]: I have one more contest but, I am not sure where to put it A to Z Art Contest

2006-08-30 [iippo]: Maybe just to the bottom of "deadline not set - new contests" and then wonder about it later. So at least it'll be on the page and people will find it.

2006-08-30 [Lothuriel]: ok, then thanks!

2006-08-30 [Linderel]: I was wondering about that too... Where should I put the Centaur Contest? It's new, but it does have a deadline, sooo... :P

2006-08-30 [iippo]: Well, until it has two entries, it goes to the bottom (because that's where most people check when there are changes, to see the newest additions). When it has more than two entries, it goes to its section... In centaur's case I think creatures contests, unless it has a deadline, in which case it either goes to "deadline set on # entries" or "deadline set by date". :)

But always, newest to the bottom of the list, so people will see.

2006-08-30 [Linderel]: It already has four entries. :D

2006-08-30 [iippo]: :O Why did you let them enter before it was advertised here?! This completely ruins the system! We're doomed!!!

2006-08-30 [Linderel]: *giggles* They just... came there. :P And I didn't think about putting it here until today. xD

2006-08-30 [iippo]: Heh, I guess all this talking about it (yes folks, that's the Centaur Contest we're talking of!!) has got it enough of new-contest attention, and it can go hide amongst the creature contests until it finds a deadline or ends.

2006-08-30 [Linderel]: Hehe. :D *adds* Err, well, it does have a deadline, so I'll add it with the other contests that have a deadline set...

2006-08-30 [Cia_mar]: um iippo, your link is spelled wrong!!! lol

2006-08-30 [iippo]: Fixed. No one will ever know >_>

2006-08-30 [Cia_mar]: unless they read these

2006-08-31 [Saffron]: busted! XD

2006-09-18 [iippo]: Oh, yeah, those ones are good to ask, since they're confusing. :S

2006-09-18 [Cia_mar]: some times i just go to the wikis and tell them they nee to change their status here... some people don't even remember that they have anything listed

2006-09-29 [shotokan_gal]: Look good ^^ though shouldn't the first be under deadline set (by date)? ;)

2006-10-11 [dayah]: plan to enter just computer went kind of caput

2006-10-12 [Galain]: I was thinking...could we do a ('real-life') exhibition of Elftown artwork? It would raise the site's profile, and be a hell of a lot of fun! I could sort one out, possibly....just a thought. Could donate all the funds to ET...?

2006-10-12 [SilverFire]: Probably a good idea to mention that in the suggestions forum.

2006-10-12 [Linderel]: Vote for the winner of Centaur Contest if you haven't already! Poll is on the page. :)

2006-10-13 [Lady of Lore]: Ok, I moved it, sorry about the bout of lazyness XD

2006-10-14 [Kahri]: Ok if I want to post my new contest here, but I am not going to set a deadline until I get an entry. Do I post it under "Deadline not set: Creature Contests" or what? It's an Anthro contest, Given Anthro Contest.

2006-10-14 [Kahri]: Never mind, I decided to set my deadline.

2006-10-14 [Kahri]: Now all I can do is hope someone will enter. PLEASE PEOPLE!!! Just kidding, I am not that desperate.

2006-10-17 [Demon Epona]: Anybody what to enter: A Dragon Contest and/or Draumr Du Dragon Art Contest? Please?! We need enteriants!

2007-10-24 [Jitter]: I added The Phantom Of The Opera contest Deadline: 15 entrants (each members is allowed 2 entries art or photography)

2008-01-07 [Once upon a dream]: I think the Final Fantasy Monster Contest is closed. They already started the voting a long time ago. Why is it still saying that it's 2/3 full? Lol XD

2008-01-07 [iippo]: From the top of the page:
if you see a contest in the wrong section, please move it!

2008-01-08 [Once upon a dream]: Sorry, I didn't know that I was allowed to move it since I am not the Host of the contest.

2008-01-08 [iippo]: The nice thing about the wiki is that anyone can edit, and if anything goes wrong or someone makes a mistake, things are incredibly easy to fix :)

2008-01-09 [Once upon a dream]: Ohhhh, gotcha. I fixed it! ^^

2008-01-09 [iippo]: Thanks! :) If you notice any other in wrong places, please do help out at any time. :)

2008-01-10 [Once upon a dream]: You got it!

2008-03-04 [moira hawthorne]: a new fun contest... Show Me Your Undies!

2008-03-18 [SilverFire]: New Contest: Song Comic Contest

2008-09-04 [Jitter]: Greek Goddess Contest the owner was last seen about 3,5 years ago, can someone wrap it up? :)

2008-12-08 [BinaryPhoenix]: Did this page die? :(

2008-12-08 [Mom]: I believe everyone is so tied up with the contest on mainstreet that's

2008-12-13 [Mom]: Actually [Mordigen]'s A Christmas Story Contest - A Christmas Story - Art New contests until there are 2 entries.

2009-04-15 [moira hawthorne]: voting started at Show Me Your Undies!

2009-08-02 [Saffron]: Maybe some major cleaning could liven up this page. What should be the maximum duration of a contest anyway? At least under a year I would think.

2009-08-03 [Mom]: When you get someone to set rules then this page could get edited but people post a contest then just forget it and leave someone else to finish it. 3/4 of the people don't even come to ET anymore. I know I tried about 7 or 8 months ago to edit but I kept hitting brick walls. Owners would not finish their own contests and I could spend 24/7 doing it for them.

2010-01-10 [Kuehne]: *hides in embarassment* I am one of those who have forgotten about ET. I have just recently come back to the town. I will work on updating/closing stuff.

2010-01-10 [SilverFire]: Welcome back. :)

2010-01-10 [Kuehne]: ty

2010-01-10 [Kuehne]: Things seem to have slowed down a good bit here.. or perhaps i'm not looking in the right place. Is there a place that seems to be more "current" on ET?

2010-01-10 [SilverFire]: For art contests? There's Competitions for official art contests, but there isn't really an active index for member-run contests at the moment.

2010-01-11 [Kuehne]: thanks for the info

2010-01-12 [Kaimee]: There don't seem to be so many active member-run contests anymore :( Unless I'm just missing them? Without an up to date index it's hard to tell...

2010-01-12 [SilverFire]: There aren't as many, but those that are running them don't bother to use this index any more. Which makes their contests even harder to find. But then, they probably get put off using this page because it's so out of date.

2010-01-26 [Kaimee]: Hmm, maybe if this page were zapped to empty, contest runners contacted and contests only added fresh...? That could work. I remember getting sick of entering contests that the owner disappeared on, or never closed, or never voted on... and some of the contests up now are the same from waaaay back then, so it really might be time to just kill them all :P

2010-01-26 [Kuehne]: *whew!* I'm glad I came back. I'd hate to be killed at the hands of [Kaimee] for having old contests. BTW... I have a new one up Josephina Book Cover

2010-02-07 [Kaimee]: *nods* I am very scary, it's understandable :P

2010-02-16 [Kuehne]: Ok.. so I started a wiki that's really more of a reference site for artists to contribute to and less of a contest. Pygmalion's Creation But where should i advertise it?

2010-09-07 [kittykittykitty]: Currently cleaning up the abandoned contests... phew. Lots of stuff to vote on.. vote early, vote often, so we can get these contests finished up :)

2010-09-07 [Kaimee]: It's great to see someone taking care of this place! :D

2011-05-02 [Danboo]: indeed

2011-06-23 [Dark Wizard]: is this still alive?
