    Welcome back to the Monthly Island Competition! Each month our players battle it out to be crowned champion and have their island named the best on the server for that month.

    We are pleased to announce that the winner of April's Island Competition was megology with their island /visit megology! Megan ,you will be receiving your discord role and in game prizes very shortly! Congratulations, and thank you to everybody who entered last month's contest

    Now to this month's competition...

    As May’s contest was held on /economy, this month the contest is switching back to /skyblock! Remember that they will be alternating each month! As always, if you have any questions about the contest, feel free to /msg 52Phenomenon when you catch me in game or contact me on discord @ 52Phenomenon#9268.

    Your task is simple: create an island (or enter an already completed island) on our Skyblock 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 Skyblock 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?
    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 the entries! As always, 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 everybody!

    It's not mod bias. Megan didn't even have a say in the voting process or she didn't ask anyone to vote for her. Whoever voted for Megan voted because her island was really nice and it stood out. It's best to try and re-enter. Not very nice to assume mod bias :/ if a staff ever wins something, is this the presumption we're gonna get? Makes our work look worth nothing and we wouldn't appreciate it. Sorry but I don't agree with you at all.

    Congrats to Megan and good luck to entries for this month. :)

    Put aside mod bias assumption

    How is it fair the build that got help from an ACTUAL Server Builder won? That doesn't seem fair to me.

    You could've asked Bert to help? You could've asked for help in any way from anyone. This is my final reply as I'm not going to clog this competition thread.

    If the island owner has placed the most blocks, they are allowed to enter. There are no rules saying you can't get help from others at all in any way, or ask for blocks. It's your choice whether to make your island alone or get help. It's optional but is allowed. Thanks. Please don't quote me anymore as I'm not going to reply, if you want to talk, DM me on Discord or create a forums conversation. My discord tag is boba#9718.

    This was something Bert and I planned together somewhere else in plan to bring it into the server.
    It wasn't "built" by a builder.

    Thank you :D

    Hi! Thanks for the entry. Just to make some clarifications for everybody surrounding this issue!

    1.) As I have explained in the past, island contest entries are whittled down by the smods and then each member of the staff team votes for the favourite from a list of typically 3 entries. This month's poll was the tightest vote that I have ever seen since I started the contest. In fact, the poll was so close that I actually had to remind staff yesterday and today to vote, and it was still drawn and I needed to announce the winner! You can ask anyone on the team, they will tell you this!
    2.) Megan herself did not have a vote this month because she had an entry, and she also was not aware of the progress of the vote due to the fact that she was an entrant this month.
    3.) Megan is the first staff team member to win the contest while they were on the team. (Frez and Mai have both won the contest, but at times when they were not a part of the staff team.) There has been nine competitions and Megan is the first example of this so-called 'staff team bias'.
    4.) In the past, players have won that have then gone on to be banned for serious offences. If the staff team were biased in their vote, they would actively avoid giving a prize to a rule breaking player. Yet this is not the case, because they simply vote for the island which they think is the best. I believe this is more evidence to disprove your theory of staff team bias in their vote.
    5.) I explained this last time there were some complaints about the contest; it was started as a bit of fun. It was all I ever intended and I regret that the contest is sometimes misconstrued.
    6.) Entering the contest is not mandatory. You are not required to spend time building an island and to enter it. The contest is just a bit of fun for everybody and is open to anyone to enter their islands! Also just because one person spent x amount of time longer on their island than somebody else does not mean that they are entitled to win.
    7.) Islands can be re-entered, so you are more than welcome to enter your island during the next eco contest if you wish!
