2003-08-31 [Melocrie]: um.. let's see if I can explain. Well, on the elfwood Mainpage, there's this picture of a feary sitting on the letters of "Elfwood", right? Well, that is the Elfwood Logo. It's like, a logo is a site's or a ..something's main picture.

2004-02-02 [Shining light]: where do the finished competitions go?
2004-02-03 [cobi]: what's the difference?
2004-03-01 [efulin]: Heyyy! :) What about competition for St.Patrick´s day?
2004-03-02 [Saffron]: what's st.patrick day?
2004-03-03 [Calico Tiger]: An excuse to drink green beer, wear green, and pinch people who aren't wearing green ;) Ok, so there's more to it, but I can't remember it all *grin*
2004-03-04 [cobi]: i guess it will come to a lepricon cintest followe by clovers and beer
2004-03-07 [Ocean Dreaming]: This is more or less for 'official' contests people can get badges for and such, I believe.
2004-03-07 [Davorah]: ah yes...I am in the process of making the badges for it...
2004-03-07 [Kai Ken]: hi
2004-03-17 [Asalli_Angel]: Are there poetry competitions?
2004-04-18 [Calico Tiger]: Because those are all private contests and not official contests
2004-04-23 [Faelover]: I found a wiki page for poem duels or called something similar and i can't find it again does anybody know where it is?
2004-04-27 [Shadowbane]: we need new art comps
2004-06-15 [xwhateverx]: how do i go to join wikki pages?
2004-07-02 [cobi]: ok, it is time for some ideas, here's a list of'em: 1. a mayor portrait competition, 2. "what would Elftron look like in the year 5000" competition, 3. "elftown prison" the most dangerous creatures of ET competition, 4. abstract elftown competition
2004-08-16 [Carol Lynn]: Is there a limit to how many entries you can make to a single competition?
2004-09-15 [Carol Lynn]: hello?
2004-09-15 [Kaimee]: All competitions are individual, you will have to read the rules or introduction for the contest you're interested in, or ask whoever is organising it :)
2004-09-15 [Carol Lynn]: That only took a month lol....ya no rules posted and this is not like normal compatitions. This dose not specify who to ask.
2004-09-15 [Kaimee]: which competition is it? :) you're still more likely to get a response if you ask on that particular contest page, since the people running it will most likely be watching it :)
2004-09-15 [Carol Lynn]: It is the contests right here on this page.....trust me I have been on elftown for a while I know how you get things done....i'm not a newbie. I understand if you have a question to ask than go ask the owner.
2004-09-15 [Kaimee]: yes but no contests are run on this page, even if they are listed here. The person running the contest might not ever look at this page, and so wont be able to answer your question. Is it a particular contest here, or all of them?
2004-09-15 [Carol Lynn]: It is all of them and I know that already....I just don't want to bother hedda about something so trivial. You know the contests... elftown-descri
2004-09-15 [True, plain and simple]: They are not really active contests..
2004-09-15 [Carol Lynn]: Than what are they?
2004-09-15 [True, plain and simple]: They are just there..? Essentially, they've been all but forgotten. ;)
2004-09-15 [Carol Lynn]: Well ya I know but....ya...I just know there not anything big they are just there....but all the same there fun to write for anyways. I mean hey I came up with a couple of interesting short stories that I can use in E.L.A. lol
2004-11-05 [kabutali]: Is there a winner for Elftown costume contest?
2004-11-05 [Carol Lynn]: not for a couple of weeks yet.
2004-11-06 [*_* Smiley on Ecstasy]: I didn't know that there was a costume contest. Is it still too late to enter?
2004-11-06 [Carol Lynn]: I'm not sure...
2004-11-10 [*_* Smiley on Ecstasy]: Thanksies! Not sure, if I'm going to join yet. But I might...
2004-12-28 [gigahoe]: i wat too have a swim meet
2004-12-29 [Carol Lynn]: ???
2005-01-07 [angebob]: i think someone should make a poetry competition...
2005-01-15 [Kaimee]: There is also the Herald Poetry Corner, thec official place to get your poetry featured in the next issue of The Town Herald, et's ezine. That isnt a competition though, all poetry entered there that follows the rules is featured in the next issue of the Herald :)
2005-01-16 [Noexistantanymo]: Aren't there any official photo competitions? Since I'm not particularly good at writing or drawing, but i know how to handle a cam.. ^^
2005-01-16 [Noexistantanymo]: Mmm... So there could already be one coming in the future? =)
2005-01-16 [Sunrose]: They have been discussing it yes :)
2005-01-16 [Carol Lynn]: That would be soo cool, since photography is an art form to.
2005-01-23 [Saffron]: ehm shouldn't the valentine competiton go here?
2005-01-23 [Sunrose]: It should, and past competitions should have the Halloween and Christmas competitions O.O
2005-01-30 [Sunrose]: Fixed!
2005-09-01 [Ocean Dreaming]: Done. ^-^
2005-09-01 [Janouk]: Thanks a lot ;)
2005-09-01 [Ocean Dreaming]: Not a problem. ^-^
2005-10-05 [shotokan_gal]: Yes! Sorry... I'll change it in a tick, and add the winner to the other page.
2005-10-10 [amuletts]: Hello I am doing an art project about dreams at the moment so if you could drop me a message to let me know what you dream about I would be very grateful. Thankyou to all those people who have already answered.
2005-10-21 [shotokan_gal]: 8 days to enter the halloween competitions guys, get moving ;)
2005-11-30 [Morniemacar]: why not another "elftown battles " competition???
2005-11-30 [shotokan_gal]: Because it's already been done? I recall the first one not having huge interest in it either. However if you want to put down suggestions, please write them on elftown competition ideas so they don't get overlooked :)
2005-12-04 [shotokan_gal]: It's already there - under, 'unofficial contests held by elftown members' :)
2005-12-18 [iippo]: When will the next graphic/buildi
2005-12-18 [shotokan_gal]: Not honestly sure. There hasn't been one since I joined the council, so can't say for definite, but I think they're usually decided by [Hedda] when something needs/wants doing for elftown (like a new frontpage image or something).
2005-12-18 [Sunrose]: I also can't think of something in Elftown that needs to be imagefied...
2005-12-18 [Saffron]: how about... a style sheet competition?
2005-12-18 [Sunrose]: But how many people can do that? :/
2005-12-19 [Saffron]: I dunno, let someone make a tutorial about it :P at least people could learn something from such a contest
2005-12-19 [Sunrose]: True, I was also thinking of an advertisement banner or a leaflet people could use to advertise Elftown..
2005-12-19 [Sunrose]: That contest is running for over 6 months with still only one entry, I think that proves my point :/
2005-12-19 [iippo]: I for one aren't too interested in stylesheets. They mess up my "invisible" images that have the background of the usual ETgreens... A lot of people just like this normal stylesheet *shrug* How about new buttons? I remember when these ones were new and a lot of people were anti-these-but
2005-12-19 [ArchangelGabriel]: It is a good suggestion though...
2005-12-19 [Saffron]: What about a suggestion contest? I still kind of have a problem with not being on mainstreet after I log in and all links automatically being bold face...
2005-12-19 [Sunrose]: The login-issue will not be changed no matter how many people complain about it; logging onto the house is not possible and logging onto somewhere else than mainstreet is necessary to make people aware of new newsitems such as rulechanges.. . // Suggestions are only good if they make a difference somehow :p
2005-12-19 [ArchangelGabriel]: Saffron, you could always link to where you wan tot enter, then you don't even have to log in each time. That's what i do, i have a link to main street and only have to log in if i've been on a diffrent computer..
2005-12-19 [Saffron]: ??? that's not the point, it's just that I miss some of the news if I'm not directed to mainstreet, I didn't even realise there was a christmas competiton! (well, I could have because I'm watching this page but... I want to be directed to mainstreet! >.o seriously the welcome is much better than with that boring no-graphics message list thing...
2005-12-19 [Sunrose]: But for every new newsitem there is a blue 'whee'-message
2005-12-19 [Saffron]: not for all new items on mainstreet there's not, like if there's a new poll or something added underneath the poll... sorry I can be a difficult person sometimes... but I'd make a great dictator XD
2005-12-19 [Sunrose]: I said 'new newsitem'...no
2005-12-20 [Saffron]: don't you think starting at mainstreet is more friendly? all the help pages right under your nose... graphics... but oh well
2005-12-20 [Sunrose]: It looks nicer, but this way more people actually read the news which many times is more important. The fact we have more forumreplies to new newsitems proves that more people read it now..
2005-12-20 [Saffron]: Oh, I have a question for you by the way :). If the winner of the animated GIF contest was to win an animated prize badge, could he/she put it up in their house without risking removal? if it was for that one occasion?
2005-12-20 [Sunrose]: Uhm, technically animated GIF's are only allowed if the member created them, but I'll put the question to the Guardsteam :)
2005-12-20 [iippo]: New newsitem isn't a blue whee-text but green italics... And I haven't noticed it going away if you go to Mainstreet. It only says No new news if yu click on the text... *not sure, experiments* Ah no, it did go away after going to Mainstreet. So that's quite fair. But still not blue :P
2005-12-20 [iippo]: But Sunrose, what do you mean "link to where you want to enter"? Where do you have a link to Mainstreet? Somewhere outside ET? In your computer favourites?
2005-12-20 [ArchangelGabriel]: Computer favourites. Put it as one of you links then you can link straight in, also, if you're set to log ouyt after say a month then you'll rarely have to login...
2005-12-20 [Sunrose]: Assuming no one else will go on your computer in the mean time :)
2005-12-20 [ArchangelGabriel]: That is the assumption. I forgot about that.
2005-12-20 [iippo]: Last time I read I swear you said it! O_O;; *goes have eyes checked* ... *comes back with guide-dog* Anyhoo, yeah my sister is also in Elftown so seems that I will keep logging into my messages then. :/
2005-12-20 [Chrilith of Akhai]: Is it really so terrible to have to click once more before you're at Main Str.? It's not that much of a problem even though it might not be nice to start out amidst the mail....
2005-12-21 [Sunrose]: People generally don't like changes, I've grown used to it by now though I must say :)
2005-12-21 [iippo]: I'm like that, except that I generally will forget that anything was ever different so I conform and the next time things change again I will be loudly against that (until again I forget how it used to be)... :D Weird, I had a dream I logged in to ET and ended up in my guestbook. O_o
2005-12-21 [Sunrose]: Exactly :p // Ooohw weird dream!
2005-12-23 [Sunrose]: Sorry [Saffron], I forgot to say this. The animated GIF can be used as a prize as a one time exception. Make sure the winner states under the image that it was approved by the Guardsteam. This to make sure another Guard does not come along and delete it.. :)
2005-12-23 [Saffron]: ah, thanks!
2006-01-20 [!*Hippy*! ♥Marie♥]: there should be contests like they have on EP...cutest couple awards and all that. Why arent there?
2006-01-20 [Leara]: O.O The first thing that comes to mind is that this is an art and fantasy site.
2006-01-20 [Sunrose]: lmfao! xD
2006-01-20 [!*Hippy*! ♥Marie♥]: yeah that's true. and btw- i wasnt trying to be a smartass or anything like that. I was just asking. Don't have to act like your queen of the world, damn
2006-01-21 [Leara]: If I was acting like the Queen of the world, you'd know it. Especially since I don't think someone with that state of mind would bother with an artist community.
2006-01-21 [iippo]: It was a funny question. Be mature enough to laugh at yourself with us, and we will laugh at ourselves with you next time.
2006-01-21 [!*Hippy*! ♥Marie♥]: lol Sorry, time of the month...the littlest thing annoys me. I did laugh at myself when I first wrote that.
2006-01-28 [Ishje]: is there going to be another valentine poetry competition this year?
2006-01-28 [shotokan_gal]: Yes, and an art competition :) They're in the process of being decided upon theme-wise.
2006-01-28 [!*Hippy*! ♥Marie♥]: wish i could try for those. I don't have a scanner and my cartoon drawing wouldn't win anyways *shrugs* lol
2006-01-29 [shotokan_gal]: You'll never know unless you try :P and participating'
2006-01-30 [Ishje]: that is to true to be true :p or somthing like that...however
2006-01-30 [Sunrose]: You stalk me :P
2006-01-30 [shotokan_gal]: ;) hehe... just quick off the mark occasionally.
2006-01-30 [Sunrose]: Hmmm we are related, must be :P
2006-01-30 [shotokan_gal]: Your relatives stalk you? :O *shivers*
2006-01-30 [Sunrose]: No, I don't think so, but relatives are usually alike :P
2006-02-25 [xido]: Could the Elftown Water Fountain Design Contest be considered an Elftown Graphic/Buildi
2006-03-26 [Sunrose]: *pats shoto* :D
2006-03-26 [shotokan_gal]: I honestly only just logged on! *innocent* :)
2006-03-26 [Sunrose]: =P
2006-04-20 [Darian Hawke]: There should be themed competitions. Like Dragons, Cute creatures, centaurs etc'...
2006-04-20 [shotokan_gal]: The competitions generally are themed - as if you click on some of the links at elftown past competitions you'll see. They're just sorted into the categories above for simplicity.
2006-05-10 [lady nytmare]: ok, so If i'm a contest organizer with the herald...
2006-11-07 [Gregory.]: hey.. anywhere i can show my poems..? I am bored and feel like getting involved..
2006-11-08 [Ishje]: when will there be a photograpy contest again? it was a such while ago...(or did I missed one? 0.o)

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
