    Welcome to the April Fools Mini Deco Contest!

    You have one objective: make us laugh.

    Winner gets $10 store credit (prize is sponsored by Athanil) :3

    Seeing as there is just a month before the R17 wipe (and we'll be doing another big Deco Contest after this for R17-R18), we're taking the pressure off you - all you need to do is dedicate some small part of your lot to create a fun, April Fools Prank. Something to bring a smile to the judges' faces :)

    Do whatever you want - whatever you think is funny, pranky, and April Fools-ish :3



    Theme:
    Somehow create some kind of joke, or prank, or trick, or funny scene. Doesn't have to be interactive but it could be. Can be a tiny part of your lot, or just a room, or a construction - you decide. The only point is - make us laugh!



    Get your entries in by Sunday 19th April - we want everyone to have time to see what kinds of tricks you're willing to play on our hardworking judges before the next wipe!



    Give us the town/village name, location detail (get coordinates by typing /loc while standing on your stone or by your signpost outside your lot), mention the name on the stone/signpost if different from your forum name, tell us what part of your lot we need to be looking at, and enter below :)

    If enough people (10+) want to come along I'll do it. And you all have to stick around to the end! Just to be clear - took me around 10 hours to do the judging, around 30 minutes per house. A tour would probably take around 10-15 minutes per house, so around 5 hours.

    I know the three winners haven't changed their homes yet, not sure about the rest.

    Best to discuss this in the R15 Deco Contest thread if there's any interest. FireLotus just made it so the Event Forums stay open same as the Screenshot Forums :)

    I wanted to discuss it there but it seems that R15 events were all closed and it is not possible to reply there. I think it would be awesome to do it during Explore Novia on Sunday (11:30 UTC), these events take a long time and there are usually around 10 people:)

    Yeah it's now locked to me as well. I asked them to open it up again, probably some bug after the forums went down earlier.

    Everyone is welcomed of course! And uncreative? I have yet to find a person that can't be creative in one way or another. So consider this a call for everyone to sign up! ;)

    Finding something funny to create isn't that hard as you make it out to be. For some it can be a cleverly designed deco trap, for others it could be a special jumping course...

    Location
    Orden Loc: (-74.8, 27.9, 53.4)
    Right across the street from Wicked Witch's Cabin from last contest.
    In this excellent @Birko map it's in the V13 location.

    You need to be an oldie to get it, and you need to stand at the top and look straight down.
    Cookie for the player who can first name the reference.

    EDIT
    Also for extra fun you might want to try out the jumping course in the first T1 lot there...

    That was fast - here is a cookie for you sire.
    hmm, maybe I should add a wind as well... Hmm.
    Also, that would of course be Iolo and Jaana.

    Great job with it. (the design... not the cookie... though that was yummy too)

    Camping with Saxon and Iolo with a West wind.

    Thanks @Moiseyev Trueden for the tip. Found the place. Took a look and my first thought was the game "Berzerk". *facepalm*

    Spoon always has some extra Apple Pie in his inventory, and usually some mead to help it slide down.


    Oh, someone found an online image as well....
