    you really need to have the player owned towns set a certain water type and be consistent otherwise whoever has saltwater will get all the traffic. you first need to set a certain water type and then match it with the town or have them set it to that water type for the duration in order to be fair. There is such a spread on the fish lengths in the water types they should all really be the same.

    I am confused. Let's say I catch a big fish the first day in one of the towns. Would it not be stupid to submit the fish before the very last minute of the weekly contest. I might catch a larger one and not be able to submit after my original submission. So we should all keep fishing till the last day and turn in our fish at the very last moment? Also, are each of the pve towns considered separate categories, especially if they have different waters?

    Yes, I mentioned I'd loan out the water conversion statues to towns that cannot afford one. But yes, to be competitive for this contest, it's all about largest size, so I'll definitely be updating the draft to encourage salt water conversion. Good points :) I also have more data now, so I'll be having various types of goals for fishing in the next one and those after, which will help certainly.

    Yes, if you plan to fish all week, it would be a good idea to wait. If you only plan to fish for 1 day of that week, might as well send it in. Also, all POT's are fresh water. They use magic statues to convert to other water types. For this particular contest, it would be to their benefit if they convert to salt water. I'll put stuff like that into the draft, hopefully today.

    Weird, I see the images just fine. I removed the extra slashes hoping it improves it for you (perhaps some browsers don't like it).

    Adding now!

    That means we have the next 3 towns for the following week already -- cool!

    Added to the registry -- looks like your town will cycle in not this week or the next, but the one following. Plenty of time for planning cross-over events ;)
