    Stormspire.net Mists of Pandaria Guide Contest!


    I'm pleased to announce the Stormspire.net Mists of Pandaria Guide Contest!

    The contest is funded by our Goblineer's WoW Gold Guide / Premium Membership so be sure to check it out!

    To enter the contest, create and submit a guide to the Contest Entries forum. We're leaving this one wide open, so your entry can cover almost anything, so long as it has some relation to World of Warcraft! You may submit your entry now, or wait until Mists of Pandaria officially launches. You will have a full month to write up a guide after the launch.

    The contest will feature our best prizes yet, so don't miss out! First prize already announced (scroll down).

    Bonus TSM Category:

    Sapu is graciously offering a bonus prize for the guide which best utilizes TradeSkillMaster in a unique or especially effective manner. You can win this prize by integrating TSM into your guide, or by writing purely about your use of TSM (see Reverb's Enchanting + TSM Guide). The winner of this prize will be chosen by Sapu himself.

    Rules:
    • Don't steal content. All entries must be original. Stolen or otherwise plagiarized content will be removed and the user permanently banned from the site.
    • All entries must be in line with site rules. Use common sense.
    • You must post your guide in the Contest Entries forum where only you may see your entry until the contest ends!
    • You're encouraged to post a "work in progress" in the entries forum, and edit and add content from there.
    • Contest deadline ~October 25th (1 month following Mists of Pandaria launch).

    Judging & Scoring Criteria:
    • Site staff and non-competing Wind Traders will vote on their favorite guide.
    • Use images and/or videos to add flavor! I recommend imgur.com for image hosting.
    • Scoring criteria:
      • Was the entry useful?
      • Was the entry comprehensive?
      • Does the entry have visual appeal?
      • Is the entry well-formatted and easy to follow?
      • Is the entry unique?

    • Bonus points:
      • Humor!
      • Timeless guides: will your guide be useful in 2 years or will it be outdated within a month?
      • Targeted: we're giving a slight bonus to guides that are particularly useful to the site's audience (goblineers).

    Prizes:
    • TSM Category Prize: Gold Farming Mug!

    • 2nd & 3rd Prize: $75 and $50 (respectively) to be spent at a Blizzard Store near you! Can be used on anything, included the awesome heart of the aspects mount!

    • 1st prize: your very own Kresky figurine! Made of solid gold, capitalism and greed! Tablecloth not included. Click the following links to see larger versions of the thumbnails (1,2,3,4,5).

    Great! Good to see something like this as encouragement to get people writing up stuff for MoP! There's lots of bits and pieces all over this site and other sites, so having stuff that's consolidated and well written will help clear up a lot of questions.

    Just want to make sure, but, I can submit a guide I have already written up in the past, right? It's absolutely for MoP, and isn't JUST for goblineers, but does appeal to them. It's my PokeMoP guide. Still a WIP atm, but it would be perfect for this contest!

    Absolutely! If the content is your own, you're welcome to use/update that information.

    Looking forward to it. I think Mithrildar and I will submit our collaborative work on the shuffle.

    Alright, if you'd like to have threads moved temporarily while you work on them or make improvements, let me know.

    Sounds like fun!

    [e] I've actually had a guide in the making for a week now so this is perfect for that.

    Love the idea, I'm a competitor at heart, so this speaks to me.

    Is anyone else concerned that information helpful to the community as a whole may be withheld as people hold on to it to include in a post specifically for this contest? I'd be less concerned if the deadline were closer to the release, but since it's about a month post-launch, I can see a bit of this happening.

    I could see that happening, but it goes both ways: I think the contest will give many people incentive to finally write "that guide" they had in mind for a while (or add to a current guide).

    Is it the idea that these guides get added to the Mists of Pandaria of the Goblineer Gold Guide? If so is there some way we can include spreadsheets in our guides, can we link to download page?

    I'm more concerned about the competition !!! @Stede @Mithrildar and @TimB wow this is going to be tough
    Going to be interesting to see what everyone comes up with, and personally it sounds like a nice challenge to work towards
