    Ahead of our Halloween Drop Party, we welcome the Community voting shortlist process. After very popular demand, we bring you the Halloween Drop Party Head competition voting process.

    Halloween Drop Party '22

    This it how the process will work:
    1. Staff have anonymously voted to create a shortlist of heads for you to vote on.
    2. You can vote on your FAVOURITE 3 from this list.
    3. The Top 6 most voted heads will then be sent to Noobcrew.

    ---
    Those 6 heads will then be used for the drop party & hunt.
    Results will be kept private to be announced at the DP.

    Please do NOT vote for anymore than 3 HEADS!
    Anyone who has voted for more than 3 will have ALL of their votes removed. This can and will be checked. You can find the names for all heads below.
    ---

    As you can see, we have moved the Original Head Competition entry thread into the archives to remove any bias or favouritism. Staff have also voted without knowing the creators. When voting closes we will move the thread back to where it belongs and announce the winners.

    Thank you for taking the time to vote! Please find below the name and photo of each head.
    Happy Halloween, hope to see you at the Drop Party!

    Link to the form: Spooky Season Head competition
    Please try to avoid discussing your votes with one another and please do not vote for anymore than 3heads.

    Hi everyone, 52 and I have taken into account the feedback that we have received on the head shortlist and decided to make some changes that better represent the submissions of the contest.
    In this reply we have addressed the main feedback points that came up multiple times on the last thread and hope to address any other issues.

    Too Many Noobcrew Heads:
    A primary complaint about the shortlist was the sheer amount of Noobcrew heads that made it through to the final stage. Whilst we were trying to stay true to the heads that were voted for the shortlist, we realise that we should have amended this and have now removed some of these heads to allow room for other creative entries. We apologise for anyone who has lost entries in this process.

    Repeated / Similar Heads:
    We have taken note that one or more of the heads in the original shortlist were extremely similar and only one of these was really needed, so we have fixed this in the new shortlist.

    Issues with Originality:
    Some feedback on the original shortlist questioned the originality of some of the heads that made it to the shortlist. In keeping with the rules, we have checked all submission for originality to ensure that creative submissions are rewarded.

    Other queries:
    Why was the original entry thread archived?

    As mentioned previously, we have taken this action for the sole purpose to prevent any extreme biases when voting. If voters cannot see who created the heads, they cannot take bias against players with varied relations, and the chosen heads are based solely on how they look. Following on from the feedback received, we have taken the action of adding the names of every shortlisted head in our post above to make voting easier.

    Why has the original shortlist thread been archived?
    To prevent any confusion on which form you should be voting on, we have archived the original shortlist. We would like to make it clear that this thread has not been deleted but moved to an archive, so that we can still refer back to the feedback that you left to improve this and future DPs. This will remain in our archives for us to reflect and review to ensure we are working in a fair manner.

    Concerns Over the DP Date:
    We recognise players’ concerns over the late announcement of the drop party.
    We can tell you that Noobcrew plans to announce this very shortly; please don’t panic!

    We greatly appreciate any feedback that you leave as it helps us improve and streamline this contest and it’s processes, which are still very new to us all. We only ask that you are respectful to everyone (including entrants and staff members) when providing this feedback so that it can be as constructive as possible.
    We look forward to the voting process for this contest and cannot wait to see which heads you guys choose.

    Thank you again, The Staff.

    This is an improvement, I would still stand by my feedback in the discussion thread (Skyblock Official Site | Skyblock) for how it should be done next time, but otherwise I would say this is a step up so thanks.

    My one concern is the Grim Reaper is still not original and can be found on a public database, it's very slightly altered but the design is practically the exact same.

    But I do appreciate the quick decision to change the list, very appreciated so thank you guys

    Ok this is truly awesome. I did not expect this to be reworked this quickly, if at all, so props to Meg, 52, and the staff team. This is a big deal in my eyes!

    Well done. A much better selection.
    As mentioned previously the short listing should be a thought out process and not left to the randomness of voting.
