As many of you would know, haven't been playing PL for about 2 months now. I have officially switched over to SL and this is why I have decided it is time to part with all my possessions which are seemingly now of no use. For those players who are still committed to PL and would like a boost i their gold amount, this thread is for you.
My Giveaway will be split in to 3 different contests. Each contest is basically orientated around the idea of potential new content. Each of these contests require you to be creative and think of new things that would make PL better. One of the reasons I quit was because I found a lack of ingenuity in the new content that STS released, that being said, I think this contest may hopefully provoke some new ideas that would make the game better.
I will be checking this thread semi-regularly although I lead a pretty busy life and sometimes may not check the forums for a few days so please be patient if I don't respond.
Conditions of entry (must read)
1. Must have a PL account and must be an active user! I don't want to be giving all this stuff away to another person where it wont be used.
2. Must not plagiarize content that is not yours.
3. Entries to be posted in this thread.
4. Only one entry per contest per person. So, you can enter all 3 contests, but only once. Also note that it is highly unlikely that the same person will win more than one contest, ie. there will be three different winners.
5. If you wish to enter more than one of the three contests, put all your entries in the one post.
6. All entries must be completely new, ie. they must not have already been entered in another contest
~~ Any person found to go against any of the above conditions will be disqualified ~~
Start: Right now!
End: Tuesday February 14th
Any entries posted after the deadline will not be accepted, so make sure you get them in in time. I have not included a time in the deadline because I don't feel the need to be that precise, but if it comes down to a timezone difference, I will most likely be lenient.

The judging will be done by Zaltiar and myself. The way we choose the winners will be qualitative, but we will do the best of our abilities to judge fairly. The main qualities that we will look for in your entries will be: creativity, authenticity, originality and all round cool-ness. Also, we will be impressed more by entries that are in-depth and give us the impression that you have actually put some thought and time into it, not just put together in a few minutes in hope of getting a prize. We will also take into account the neatness of your entry, your grammar, and other such fickle things.
So there you have it folks! As some of you may of noticed, I have tried to create contests that don't necessarily favor the artistically talented. What I will be looking for is creativity over artistic talent. While a good picture with your design will improve your chances, it is not the most important aspect. I would just like to reiterate this so that some of you don't feel as if you are being discriminated against.
I will be updating this thread whenever I make changes to the contest description or anything else. On the day of the deadline I will post to give you guys a heads up and may also summarize all the entries in one final post so that I don't miss any.
If you have any feedback, either send me a private message or post your thoughts below.
