2006-12-25 [Black Raven]: ^_^thank you
2006-12-25 [shotokan_gal]: Gah, the date still says the 15th on that :/ *pokes whoevers in charge*
2007-01-12 [Black Raven]: 20 march 2007 will start the Norouz holidays,we all celebrate in that day,becuz it's our(persian) new year(1386),that's the worth day for us like christmas that worth for you.Will you hold some contests for that day?
2007-01-12 [moira hawthorne]: thats coooll... where all is Norouz celabrated?... is it only in Iran or more countries? and what are the traditional celabrations like?

2007-01-12 [Sunrose]: Right now we don't have any religion-relat
2007-01-12 [moira hawthorne]: and Halloween
2007-01-12 [Sunrose]: That's more an American tradition (though also celebrated in Ireland, Scotland and Canada). I know it's a Pagan celebration, but I still consider it a different category than Christmas and Valentines.
2007-01-12 [moira hawthorne]: i dont
2007-01-12 [Sunrose]: Because you celebrate it.
2007-01-12 [moira hawthorne]: b/c it is a religious celabration... and you said there are no other religion-relat
2007-01-13 [Sunrose]: Moira, this wiki is not meant for you to start another argument on. I am entitled to my own opinion, I consider this conversation over.
2007-03-05 [Black Raven]: The other idea!!
competition with Elftown's Flag theme,the elftown like every states can have a Flag.
2007-03-05 [moira hawthorne]: oooooooooooooo
2007-03-23 [Angel In Red]: Does elftown celebrate Eid? The muslim festival? Sorry just popped in out of nowhere, but i am curious.
2007-03-23 [Angel In Red]: Im busy. I work and i barely come on, and if i do, i have a massive list of messages to reply to. By the time im done, i have to go again.
2007-03-25 [kittykittykitty]: Usually I let messages wait for a day or two if I have other stuff to do :P
Elftown has a calendar with holidays added to it. I made the Talk like a Pirate Day wiki for it, but it doesn't have to be anything special... just basic info, history, traditions, etc. There are a lot of dates on Elftown_hollydays, so you could add it there and see if anybody wants to add more to it.
2007-03-25 [Angel In Red]: The thing about eid is, that it doesnt happen on a specific date, someting to do with the full moon
2007-03-25 [moira hawthorne]: so does easter
2007-03-25 [Angel In Red]: Really? hmm, i must really go back to school. dont celebrate easter.
2007-03-25 [moira hawthorne]: me niether
2007-05-12 [dragonos]: only thing i like is halloween i can be myself plus it is a good night for the thing's i do it allow's passege of time to slow during that night but i do despise thows people who dress up with those stupid mask's displaying that a wich is green and has a big wort on there face that is nothing more than a stupid misconception of the real thing it just anger's me to see people think we look like that it is a lie we just look like everybody else it get's annoying to see them things and any people come to my house wearing one runs away
2007-05-12 [dragonos]: what there isent a sci-fi storie contest
2007-05-12 [Sunrose]: We can only do so much at a time :)
2007-05-12 [dragonos]: well that is ok when you can get a competition about sci-fi stories that people write i think i got a good one i can add to that competition and believe me it is a dusy. :)
2007-05-12 [Sunrose]: We always ask members to write new entries though :)
2007-05-13 [dragonos]: in a sence it is new
2007-07-03 [Hobbit teen]: just wondering...fo
2007-07-03 [moira hawthorne]: <img50:
2007-08-22 [BadGirl222]: hey.... i have a grrrrrreat idea some one should make a test page were there are thousands and thousands of test that people can take if the get board or if they just want to ... that would be cool.....
2007-08-23 [dragonos]: Your saying to get a page that is exactly like Quizilla
2007-09-21 [Lady of Lore]: How long do we keep contests on this page that are closed?
2007-09-21 [Sunrose]: Until we announced the winner in the news :)
2007-10-12 [kris3eck]: lol... questionnaires
2007-10-22 [_Einsam_Ein_]: i agree with dragonos...its so annoying when people portray witches as ugly people. we are just like everyone else... except... well... we're well... witches.
2007-10-22 [Jitter]: The thing is that there are the witches of folklore who are traditionally ugly and the witches by religion who are people like the rest. no connection between them :P
2007-10-25 [dragonos]: But the thing is I hate those pathettic folklores potreying witches as ugly green thing's with wort's on the nose that is exactly like telling a christian that there god is actualy a dog that has the name god and jesus is a whimpering old man. Plus the word witch is actualy many thing's not just one because it meen's that the person potreyd as a witch is actualy a person that uses what to some is known as magick. Therefore a witch is in fact a ,Wiccan,Druid,
2007-10-25 [moira hawthorne]: I think the point should be that art isnt about continual portraying a dated incorrect outlived stereotype... whether it be real life or myth or fantasy... there is no more one way to draw/portray a witch than there is to draw an elf or faery... its up to the artist to decide...
2007-10-25 [dragonos]: that's true because there depiction's on what witches look like in myth is just that myth there is no actual proof stateing that is what they looked like. When infact they looked just like us only differance was there cloth's back then were differant than most clothing you see nowaday's. Although that is the case with all that were back then not just witches looked differant everyone did. Just think if you went back in time to that time period with your current clothing you would most likely be killed for being a witch. Just because you look differant.
2007-10-25 [moira hawthorne]: quite right... its kindda boring when fantasy/myth creatures ... even immortal ones get pigeon holed as having a dated type of clothing from one particalar era of human history...
more interesting to think that if you were to met lets say... a leparchon on the street today... he'd be dressed in modern clothes not some weird stylized victorian suit...
2007-10-25 [dragonos]: that would be true the fact is as time advances so does everything in it change as well so saying one thing is to look like one thing just because it may or may not have looked like that in the past is ridiculas. who is to say that you may not even be talking to one of those thing's from the past you won't know because as time changed so did they. So infact they could be walking around just like any other person and you would never know because you think they would appear as the myth's say. Relieing to much on myth and legend just look at the times there are thing's that go unexplained and the best thing anyone can say is that it never happend because there is no logical answer for why or even how it happend.
2007-10-25 [moira hawthorne]: Id like to believe that all myths are real... and that if we look with our hearts we will see the faery street busker... throw him a coin and he will sing you magic!
2007-10-25 [Jitter]: But the thing is I hate those pathettic folklores potreying witches as ugly green thing's with wort's on the nose
You can't call folklore pathetic :/ Each land has their stories whether those are of your liking or not. I personally am not fond of certain folklores either but I don't diss them because they don't agree with my views of some creatures.
And it also would be better to stop chatting on this wiki and take the discussion to a forum or a private wiki :)
2007-10-25 [dragonos]: Lol maybe but there are some folklores I think are cool true or not I just don't like the witch one. Yes this is infact for competition's not idol banter so yes you are rite this isen't the place for it.
2008-02-10 [Triola]: The "Elftown Christmas Competitions - Photography open" part is arguable :P
2008-02-10 [Linderel]: Thanks for the reminder xD
2008-02-10 [Triola]: 'S what I'm here for :3 Stalking and nitpicking ;)
2008-07-08 [Ramirez]: ECM Fantasy dwarf photo - Deadline: Februaru 15th, 2009
Is February suppose to be spelt with a 'u'? Just wondering. =O
2008-07-08 [blood_fairy21]: i think its a typo.
2008-07-12 [Joey_Bitch]: I think this page is cool...
2008-08-10 [Mortified Penguin]: Kill kittens.
2008-10-12 [pegasus1000]: It's to bad no one is doing a scary story compatition.
2008-11-12 [Thunder Cid]: Is the Halloween contests closed now?
2008-11-12 [Linderel]: Thanks for the reminder.
2008-11-12 [Thunder Cid]: No problem :)
2008-11-21 [Alexi Ice]: When are the Christmas competitions opening?
2008-12-05 [Alexi Ice]: I noticed ^^ I am working on my submissions now!
2009-01-06 [Mortified Penguin]: Odd... I don't recall making that previous comment up there... nevertheless, I stand by it. Kill kittens.
2009-01-17 [pegasus1000]: Has there been a compatition on Griffons yet?
2009-04-08 [Alexi Ice]: I need to make a competition.
2009-04-08 [Chimes]: >.> Was that comment really necessary? :P
2009-04-08 [Alexi Ice]: Was it really not?
2009-04-08 [Chimes]: Yes. :P It holds no value to this page. :P
2009-04-08 [Chimes]: If you have an idea for one, make sure no one has already thought of it, then make it and take it to the forums to see if it needs improvement or if it is liked etc. :]
2009-04-08 [Chimes]: Non-official contests don't get listed on this page anyway...
Ranty comment and my comment after deleted. Not nice for people to see on wiki pages. :]
2009-04-08 [Alexi Ice]: I was going to delete them anyway. ^^
2009-04-09 [Alexi Ice]: I have been watching that page for a while.
2009-04-10 [Alexi Ice]: Oh, no I havn't seen that one
2009-04-17 [Chimes]: Or not
2009-04-17 [Linderel]: It doesn't exist xD
2009-04-17 [SilverFire]: >_< amfg. Someone needs to make the 'ECM Unar-wtfevar' page. o.<
2009-04-17 [Chimes]: ... Whut? XD
2009-04-17 [Chimes]: But the actual creature is a Unari, according to the page... which is what bugs me... the page is titled wrong. XD
2009-04-18 [SilverFire]: When I read the page 'the unari' was always used as a plural. So I kind of inferred from what I read that 'unar' was the singular - but I didn't actually read the word 'unar' anywhere. What part are you reading?
2009-04-18 [The Dog you Kicked]: raises hand just a question, which Unari are you discussing?
2009-04-18 [Linderel]: Maybe unari are like sheep. Same word used for both singular and plural forms?
2009-04-18 [The Dog you Kicked]: ahh, thanks [SilverFire], was confused between the fantasy race and the sci fi race (i think it was Titan AD or some other animated sci fi movie or maybe a book not sure) Linderel is right it is a collective name like sheep (the others are called Unarum or Unari depending on singular or Plural )
2009-04-20 [jaraden]: what's the next art compitition???
2009-04-20 [Alexi Ice]: We can't tell you the next Jaraden. You will just have to wait and see! <3
2009-04-21 [jaraden]: ARGH!!! wel li can't draw freaking horses to save my life so that one is out.. and the Unar one i'l have to check out... curses.. needs to get back into working... hee hee!
2009-04-25 [Alexi Ice]: I hope I put that in the right place....
2009-05-15 [Mental Terrorist]: Can people suggest competitions? I think it would be cool if people with a good enough idea could make guidelines for a drawing then let everyone vote.
2009-06-24 [RaydensFyre]: i think a fun one would be a contest exhibiting the vices of fantasy creatures.....
2009-06-24 [Alexi Ice]: You should make one ^^ It isn't extremely hard.
2009-06-24 [RaydensFyre]: yes....but im a moron.....a moron with not a lot of time.......ha! that makes it sound like being a moron is a terminal illness! eep.....
2009-06-24 [Kyrinn]: Dont sell yourself short there. :P ANyone can make a contest. Just look around at how other pages and contests are set up and you should be able to come up with it in no time.
2009-06-24 [jacen81]: I think a cool contest would be the creation of an alien creature in its environment. The trick is making it feasible to actually exist in that environment.
2009-06-24 [Chimes]: Then... make it. :P
2009-06-24 [jacen81]: Is there a particular place I should make and advertise the contest?
2009-06-24 [Alexi Ice]: [RaydensFyre] - If you need help, set a page up and I can help you. ^^. The mc is also a good page to look at home made contests and see how they opperate. It is also a good oportunity to learn something new <3!
2009-06-24 [RaydensFyre]: Im always up for learning something new...and i appreciate the help..but considering the amount of time i actually have on here...it may not be fair for me to host a contest.....
2009-06-25 [Alexi Ice]: Fair enough ^^
2010-01-09 [*Phoenix*]: 2 of the Festivals are closed.
2010-08-20 [Flisky]: Um...what's the ECM Centaur Nymph supposed to be? (Under Art Competitions)
2010-08-20 [Chimes]: Mistake when editing, probably. Fixed now. :)
2010-10-20 [wicked fae mage]: Elftown Fall Reference is up at the top twice. *would fix it but not sure how to box or adv edit*
2010-10-20 [SilverFire]: Fixed, thanks. :)
2011-01-12 [Akayume]: This sorely needs to be updated. (:
2011-01-14 [Sera Torri]: Any competitions at the moment? All these are 2010!!
2011-01-14 [Sera Torri]: ok thank you :)
2011-03-08 [Rice]: Nearly all the deadlines for these contests have past, have they gone into voting and winners been chosen? If so can I sort out the page and add the finished contests to the closed list?
2011-04-03 [Sunrose]: The Halloween competition winners have already been in the news. This page is pretty outdated :P
2011-04-07 [Akayume]: And the ECM Nymph has been closed, no winners announced yet. :P
2011-04-07 [Rice]: I'm just going through one by one, I keep hitting the edit because my connection is bad and I don't want to loose all the stuff I've put in. X3 But thank you!
2011-04-07 [Rice]: Alrighty, I think that is everything. :)
2011-04-07 [SilverFire]: There are several EPRM photo sessions that are open, they need to be listed here. They're all listed in the most recent news item. :)
2011-04-07 [SilverFire]: And closed contests can be removed once the winner has been announced. They don't need to stay here forever. :P
2011-04-07 [Rice]: I shall do that now and okay. I was just sort of following by examples, consider them deleted. *salutes*
But..maybe they want to be here foreveeeer~
2011-04-07 [Rice]: Have we not announced the winners for the Nymph contests yet? I can;t seem to find them. 8U
2011-04-07 [SilverFire]: Tough for them. :P I don't think they have.
2011-04-07 [Nioniel]: No, no winners announced yet for that. There's an EPRM session that's open to voting now, too. EPRM Cityscapes. :)
2011-04-07 [Rice]: Added it for you. :)
Who decides it?
2011-05-25 [kians mummy]: it looks weird in voting how about voting now
2011-05-25 [Rice]: It's always been 'in voting'. Just some of them only said 'voting' so I made them all match, probably got deleted by me during a mass clean up. -_-'
2011-05-25 [kians mummy]: lol, ok, you do alot of cleaning up
2011-05-30 [Nioniel]: Remove it, please.
2011-05-30 [Rice]: Done.
2011-06-03 [Cillamoon]: Rice I have some updates for you. Can you please add to your list of current ongoing EPRM's the following: EPRM Haunted House Reference, EPRM Doll Reference, EPRM Marsh & Swamp Reference. All are deadlined for the 31st of October, 2011. Thank you!
2011-06-03 [Rice]: I'll add them now for you. 8D
2011-06-03 [Cillamoon]: Thank you!
2011-06-08 [Rice]: I'll correct it. :)
2011-06-08 [Rice]: Wait...the poll is still up. 8| Or am I being dim and not seeing a winner?
2011-06-14 [Linderel]: Why aren't the RPMC sessions listed?
2011-06-16 [kians mummy]: - Midsummer Festival - Deadline: 10th June 2011. should now be in voting
2011-06-16 [Akayume]: The people who run this page don't necessarily run all the competitions Sammie. (:
2011-06-17 [Rice]: The Midsummer Festival is open until July.
As for the RPMC, I didn't know if they were supposed to be on here or not, I just update and do as I'm told XP Do you think they should be on here?
2011-06-17 [SilverFire]: IF they're official, they should be on here.
2011-06-17 [Nioniel]: Are they actually official ET competitions? I didn't think so, but Festivals are listed on the page...
2011-06-17 [SilverFire]: If it gives out an official badge as a prize, it's an official competition.
2011-06-17 [Nioniel]: Then they shouldn't be listed here anyway. :P
2011-06-17 [SilverFire]: I presume that you are talking about Festivals, whilst I am talking about the RPMC.
2011-06-17 [SilverFire]: Contests should be removed when the winners are announced. The 'closed' section is used for things like RP contests, where the contest is still running, but closed to new entrants.
2011-06-17 [Rice]: Okey-dokey.
2011-06-17 [Nioniel]: Yes, sorry, I meant the Festivals. :)
2011-06-19 [Mortified Penguin]: There should be an official competition where people make a map of Elftown. (inb4 condescending comment basically calling the idea stupid and suggesting I make it myself followed by a winking emoticon)
2011-06-20 [Chimes]: I actually like that idea. :)
2011-06-20 [Mortified Penguin]: NO YOU DON'T. STOP YELLING AT ME.
2011-07-07 [Rice]: Thank you.
2011-09-07 [Alexi Ice]: Who updates this page?
2011-09-07 [iippo]: I believe it is (or should be) the mods of any and all official competitions.
2011-09-07 [Alexi Ice]: Alright cool. I wanted to update it and such but wasn't sure if it was someones job.
2011-10-02 [Lothuriel]: I updated a deadline. I always forget about this wiki <__<
2011-12-12 [kians mummy]: Still nothing for the halloween competition yet?? :)
2011-12-12 [Nioniel]: Two of the sections have been closed up and have had winners announced, the other two are still being sorted. :)
2011-12-12 [kians mummy]: ok then, thanks, xx :)
2011-12-25 [Roma]: What about the Christmas Carol competition?
2011-12-25 [iippo]: Err, what about it? :D
2011-12-25 [Roma]: It's not up
2011-12-25 [iippo]: True - but neither are any of the christmas competitions..
2011-12-25 [Evolution X]: Has genesis gauntlet frozen?
2011-12-25 [iippo]: Not exactly - we're still judging the first round of playing. And in fact one entrant hasn't yet played (my bad, I totally missed it in the list >.O) So sorry it is taking such a long time.
2011-12-25 [Evolution X]: Well... I hope I make it through to the next round.
2012-05-31 [Danboo]: hmm.. i want to join an art contest but there is but one..
2012-11-11 [Awesomekat]: I think there should be a new writting or poem contest...I'm good at that kind of stuff
2012-11-11 [SilverFire]: Well the Halloween poetry contest just closed, but the Christmas poetry contest will be opening soon. :)
2012-11-22 [Awesomekat]: Yay!
2012-12-24 [pegasus1000]: Searches for "Christmas" under the wiki search... "Hey there's the Christmas Competitions!"
2012-12-24 [iippo]: Good point, this page should have links. (PS: Main Street would have helped you there too)
2013-03-07 [XxTsomexX]: Needs a bit of an update? :3
2013-03-11 [kians mummy]: Sure does. :)
2013-03-28 [kians mummy]: Want me to update it as seen as nobody is doing whilst I have time on my hands? :D
2013-03-28 [Nioniel]: I just updated it a week ago.
2013-03-28 [SilverFire]: It still has the Christmas competitions on it. <.<
2013-03-28 [Nioniel]: Whoops.
2013-03-28 [kians mummy]: Lol, that's better. :)
2013-04-29 [Evolution X]: I would really have liked it to happen though...
