    Hi everyone! I am excited to finally announce our brand new event, the Monthly Island Competition! Each month, players will battle it out to be crowned champion and have their island named the best on the server for that month.

    This contest will be run each month on our Economy server (If all goes well, it may soon become a feature of our Skyblock server too!). The task is simple: create an island (or enter an already completed island) on our Economy server and submit it. By entering, you have the chance of winning the following:
    • A custom medal from me that will only be obtainable from winning this competition[​IMG]
    • A role on the Skyblock Discord that will only be given out to those that win our competitions
      [​IMG]
    • An extended feature in the #island-showcase channel on the Skyblock Discord
      • The winner's showcase will include more images and much more detail about the island
    • 1x Pig Spawner
    To win, we ask that all entrants follow the criteria set:
    • You must be the owner of the island that you submit
      • Your entry cannot be an island that you sold to another player
    • The island must be submitted by the player that built the majority of it
    • The island must be on our Economy server
    Your islands will be judged by our team of Super Moderators. The winner will be announced by me on this thread, and will also be included in the thread for next month's competition. Islands will be judged on how unique they are, how well they are built, and their general look. To enter, please reply below with this format:
    • In-game name:
    • Discord name and tag (e.gName#0001):
    • Island picture(s):
    • Have you entered your island in our island competition before?
      • This question only becomes applicable next month
    Note: You may enter the same island each month, but this means that you are unlikely to win. Entering a new build each month will increase your chances of winning if you have already won.

    We look forward to seeing all of your entries! Each month the competition will begin on the 1st and end on the 25th, allowing us time to decide our winners. Entries made after the deadline will not be considered, so please make sure you enter on time!

    Good luck everyone!

    You can definitely use mods/textures in the images which you upload, but it is very likely that I (and possibly the other smods) will also visit all the islands personally with my Minecraft settings :)

    All islands submitted will be visited by our team of Super Moderators to ensure that 1) the image submitted is of the true island and 2) the island submitted fits all of our criteria (e.g player submitting the island must have built a large portion of it).

    One island only please!
    It’s only obtainable by winning this competition, but one will be held each month. So in the end, lots will end up in circulation.

    If a coop submits it do all the players get prizes or is the prize shared across.
    Do all coop members get the competition winner role?
    Will the medal be allowed to be sold, and will it be allowed to be sold on the AH?
    If I was in a coop and was banned and could not participate in the island, but the coop owner wasnt banned and happened to win would the banned coop member get the discord role?
    not like im banned or anything
    and in a coop

    Please see the criteria set in the thread; the person entering must be the island leader, and must have built the majority of the island, so the entire coop cannot be entered. Therefore, only the player that submitted the island wins, since they would own it and have built most of it.
    No, the same things apply as I just wrote above.
    It is up to the winner to do what they’d like with the medal. I would advise against selling it though, as winning the contest is the only way to get it. Also, one will be given out each month, so in the end there will be a fair few.
    No, as explained above only one person can enter, and they must be owner and have built the majority of the island.

    Oh, thats not very great how only the coop leader can win. In some coops the coop leader is inactive and they cannot be reached through any means.
