The Winners have been announced at the bottom of this post!This post concludes the first ever Empire Minecraft Spotlight video! I celebrated by purchasing brownies at my nearest bakery (I actually didn't) and finally got around to the handout of rewards. The results made their point and the winners will be announced within these next few lines, but first I would like to say that I was planning on creating a "Top 10" video to correspond with the rewarding, but I don't have enough time within my schedule to do so. Do keep in mind, that this project (EMC Spotlight: Pilot) was called a pilot simply to test it's system. I do like the idea and want to continue working on this, but until I can find enough time, I have no specific dates as to when other spotlight events will be held. If you still have not seen this video, where have you been? --This is how I plan to work the next possible spotlight videos-- After realizing how much work this project actually is, I decided to develop a system that should make things work out quicker for me, and the rest of the community that wishes to take part. The system will work using the list that follows. I will create a submission form using Google Documents to collect residential submissions. This form will be available 24/7 until I feel that I have enough residences to look through, or I will prepare a due date like I have done previously. To make this easier for me, this form will require that you provide a link to a snapshot of your residence, as well as a description of what it is. I will basically run off of a "Top Ten" basis for the spotlight. This pilot had about 30 residences total, and that was quite a project to run through. Instead I will just choose 10 from the submissions, ask people to vote, and I will then create a Top 10 video using the results. The rewards may not always be the same for each spotlight project, so don't get too used to the rewards system just yet. I will eventually make a standard reward system for the Spotlight Projects so people know what they are working for. Some Spotlight Projects will request specified themes. An example would be "EMC Spotlight: Summer 2012". I will specify each theme, and in this example I would ask for submissions that portray Summer. So perhaps you would create a beach? This is where you get creative! After drinking all the coffee and tearing out all the pages in my notebook, the system described above was born. I feel this system will work out MUCH better than what I did previously. It will save me a lot of time, and give you quicker results. Now that all that has been explained, let's move on to the winners of the Top 10 contest for this project!
