According to the voting (29 people included it in their top 3), Alabastero's Skull Rock Temple should win. However, the entry directs readers to a link at photobucket.
Although there's nothing specific in the rules about this (they only explicitly exclude links to WIP topics) I would have thought TG members were sufficiently aware that, as we archive competition entries, links to WIP topics and other temporary resources are not allowed. It would seem however that none of the entrants, the competition organizer, the voters, or anybody else who looked at it was aware. So what do I do: let it win and ignore the link (leaving it to break at some later date), disqualify the entry, or spend some of my own time correcting it?
Of course there's also the question of whether including this additional material gave Alabastero's entry an unfair advantage over the other entries? Perhaps others are thinking they'll do the same next time?
My other complaints include:
coxrltw's use of /w rather that writing "with" in full. I haven't checked whether this was done to squeeze under that maximum text limitation, or just to make it harder to read. I suspect the latter given that the entire text is posted as a single paragraph.
nealcrankshaw's neglecting to answer the main question that any future reader will want to know about his entry: "how did you make the shipping containers". All we are told is that they are made from 4 layers of card. Not very useful. Photos are a bit dark too.
I'm very busy at the moment and the time I can devote to TerraGenesis is currently being used working on an improved posting mechanism. So I don't have time to decide what, if anything, I should do about this. We started archiving the competition entries because we thought they'd provide a useful resource. If the quality of the information is such that it isn't useful then maybe we should stop archiving?
