2008-10-27 [Alexi Ice]: Alright, thank you ^^

2009-08-26 [XxTsomexX]: Are we having a halloween competition this year??

2009-08-26 [Alexi Ice]: They run every year, I belive.

2009-08-26 [XxTsomexX]: I just didn't see any links up for this year's on the Elftown mainpage... and Halloween is only about 2 months away... so I was a bit confused. I've entered it every year I've been here :)

2009-08-26 [Alexi Ice]: We are working on it right now. Thanks for the reminder though! Lol.

2009-08-26 [XxTsomexX]: Awesome ^^

2009-09-07 [Vou]: YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY~ I missed the deadline last year coz of some personal life issues, but everything's good, my creative energies are flowing and Ima ready for this year. ^___________^v I've been waiting all year. Hehe. XD

2009-09-12 [Nioniel]: ZOMG! :)

2009-09-12 [Nioniel]: Oooh, also, just to be sure, the deadline for all of these contests on this page is November 2nd of this year?

2009-09-12 [Linderel]: Er, no. It's October 25th. :P

2009-09-13 [Nioniel]: Wonderful! Thankies Lin!

2009-10-15 [Alexi Ice]: Wow. Sad that I missed that pet contest until now. Should have been obvious. LOL.

2009-10-15 [Lothuriel]: Haha, it's alright hon. ^__^

2009-10-19 [Janouk]: Is the 'Helloween' in the alarm a pun or a spelling error? I'm confused :p

2009-10-19 [Nioniel]: Yeah, I didn't get it either...

2009-10-19 [Alexi Ice]: A pun. LOL.

2009-10-20 [Yume Youki]: Umm...


That pun makes no sense! XD

2009-10-20 [Alexi Ice]: ...>> The point is to get your attention...and see, it worked!

2009-10-21 [Yume Youki]: ?


It sure did!

2009-10-21 [Alexi Ice]: <3 LOL.

2009-10-24 [arthemis_]: It did draw the attention indeed :P

2009-10-31 [moira hawthorne]: there not a section for pumpkins...
there are two sections for costume masks... costume and photography
so I just put this here
Angel of Death from Hellboy2 the Golden Army!

any one else wants to show off their pumpkins?

2009-11-01 [Alexi Ice]: I will be posting pics of pumpkins and my costume eventually.

2010-09-20 [Nioniel]: If we're not running the makeup portion of the costume contest this year, do we need to have this: "Home made costumes and make up" up there?

2010-09-20 [Alexi Ice]: I think makeup/ costumes go together...don't they? (does not quite remember)

2010-09-20 [Nioniel]: They do, or they're the same section, at least. However, if we're not running the makeup portion, do we need the text beneath the link?

2010-09-20 [SilverFire]: There's nothing that says that the photography section has to be of people's costumes, Moira - that would just be silly, and even we're not that silly. :P Photos of people's pumpkins would be welcome in the photography (as would photos of dark woods with black cats and the like - y'know, anything 'halloweeny'. :)

2010-10-12 [Hedda]: Like alien blood wine:

2010-10-12 [Skydancer]: Ah yes, All Hallows, the pagan new year and one of the moments in time when the veils between the worlds are thinnest. :)

2010-10-16 [*Phoenix*]: I was wondering why there isn't a section for "stories"?

2010-10-28 [Lord Josmar]: Hmm. Dont think im going to be able to get my submission in before then. Oh well.

2010-10-29 [pegasus1000]: I'm going to miss this one too. October has been bad to me.

2010-10-29 [Alexi Ice]: Phoenix - since the other mod's havn't taken a stab at this, I'll give it a try. I'm guessing because stories are harder to judge and our holiday contests already don't have the turn out we would like, spliting it into even more sections would only decress the submissions we already have. Or something like that. I might ask Silver, it's a good question. Also. Percentage wise, there are not as many writers as there are artists and photographers here on ET.

2010-10-30 [*Phoenix*]: Oh, well that makes sense. I personally would love to write a Halloween (or any other holiday) story. I even have one in the works that deals with Halloween....

I had an idea the other day for a picture, but I can't get it done in two days. >.< I'm too busy this weekend.

2011-12-06 [kians mummy]: Haven't the votes come through, its been well over a month now and not everyone has been badged. :)

2011-12-06 [Alexi Ice]: You will know when the voting is finished. The photo page still has it's poll up and I know it takes a while for the Literary judges to do their thing. Once the voting has been finished their will be a news item on mainstreet ^^

2013-10-28 [Mortified Penguin]: Why no costume contest?

2014-10-01 [Figgy]: Yaaaaay!

2014-10-04 [Mortified Penguin]: Why no costume contest?!

2014-10-04 [Nioniel]: There has been little or no interest in the costume portion for this competition in a while. Feel free to enter a photo of your costume to the Halloween Photography Competition.

2014-10-04 [Mortified Penguin]: I just want a colorful penguin badge... ;_;

2014-10-11 [pegasus1000]: Perhaps if there is a turn out of costumes in the photography contest would there be a reconsideration next year. Shrug. I have an actual costume this year, but no camera so that's that.

2015-10-26 [Mortified Penguin]: *kaff*

2015-10-27 [Alexi Ice]: Hey Mort (;

2015-10-27 [Mortified Penguin]: I WANT A PENGUIN BAAAAAAADGE!

2015-10-27 [Mortified Penguin]: Full color, that is. I can't stand seeing my poor little penguin being all black and white like that. :(

2020-08-22 [Stephen]: Less is more, and thus there are now less pages.
Also, this contest is open.

2020-08-23 [Alexi Ice]: Yes.

2020-08-23 [Alexi Ice]: Now how the hell do I upload stuff

2020-08-23 [Stephen]: You can upload images in the comment-box of a wikipage, or on a wikipage you own.
Uploading directly to a comment-box is probably easier - there should be a little button that says "upload image" right above where you can type.

2020-08-23 [Alexi Ice]: Ahh I see it!

2020-08-23 [Stephen]: Hey, Penguin. You going to enter the Costume Contest to try for a colored penguin badge?

2020-08-23 [Alexi Ice]: I want the penguin badge

2020-08-23 [Stephen]: Make (or heavily alter a store bought) a costume and show us it. :D

2020-09-05 [Alexi Ice]: Gonna win all these contests by default ☠️

2020-10-21 [Tar]: NOT SO FAST. *insert villain like music* I too have submitted stuff. You will probably win though, I am just glad to be adding.

2020-10-22 [Paul Doyle]: *watches Halloween themed tumbleweed blow by*

2020-10-29 [Mortified Penguin]: Give me time. I'm waiting until the day after the deadline to submit stuff, so I can start an argument when I get rejected.

2020-11-20 [Painted Autumn]: So when are winners announced?

2020-11-21 [Alexi Ice]: This is a democracy we gotta vote

2020-11-21 [Alexi Ice]: Also visit bobs diner for funsies and pumpkin related horror

2020-11-23 [Paul Doyle]: Somehow I sense this will be resolved/closed before Trump stops being pouty and delusional and accepts reality, but not too soon.

2020-11-24 [Mortified Penguin]: Not if I can help it! I'm still working on my submissions.

2021-05-07 [Mortified Penguin]: Still working on my submissions.

2021-05-08 [Paul Doyle]: Meanwhile, Trump remains pouty and delusional and not accepting of reality.
