Also, I would like to suggest that Sculptures, Toys, and the like be given a separate category: "Handicraft". There were a number of such entries of worthy quality in the past ROGT that didn't make it to the winning spot just because digital artworks appeared to have been given higher priority and that was just sad.
I personally agree with this.
Saying that, the staff will review the pending concerns and adjust if necessary. This also means comments/non entry postings will eventually disappear from the thread as we move forward Merely to keep things clean and on topic. Good luck to you all!
Thank you for the input - after discussing this with other members of the staff, I've decided to go ahead with this idea. It has many valid points, and of course more chances for awesome artists to win Thank you for the suggestion!
Agreed! Not to mention, prizes 3 & 4 were released in the cash shop fairly recently.
Based on some of these comments, it appears folks aren't super fond of having cash shop items as prizes.
Please keep in mind though that any item available as a prize can and may be introduced to the cash shop in the future. The biggest difference between prize items and items you just bought is the naming... and also the fact that your other prizes include exclusive titles as well as 3 months of VIP
That said, I won't be changing too much from the prize pool. I will replace one of the cash shop prizes with Costume Angel Ear Wing though.
Thank you all for your feedback! Some time after this event I will put up another topic where we will take suggestions on prizes from you all so we get a better sense of which ones you like the most.
