Hello builds.gg Members!
There's only a few hours left in the builds.gg 10K Challenge. Those who have been following the contest know that we have strived to make the contest as fair as possible for all participants. Aside from the massive amount of random draw prizes that will be given away, we have also been closely monitoring the voting activity to ensure a fair contest that genuinely reflects the opinions of the community. As mentioned in our last update, it has definitely been a learning experience for us as well.
Some updates to share with everyone before the contest closes:
We will continue to monitor how voting goes leading up to the end of the contest, and we will do so again once voting has concluded to make sure that none of these exploits have affected the results. This is part of the reason why the winner announcement will take place about one week after voting has ended.
We know that some people may be dismayed to find out that some of their previous votes have been removed. In fact, we have already received messages from disgruntled users threatening legal action against us. However, we will not be bullied into allowing such actions to go against the spirit of the contest, and will remain vigilant in weeding out builders trying to gain an unfair advantage. Making such adjustments is well within our rights as per the contest rules.
Having said that, we have many ideas for future contest formats that will please a wide variety of builders. Our next one, scheduled for April 4, will implement a lot of the improvements that we've discovered during the 10K Challenge. Stay tuned for a full listing of the changes we're making.
Once again, thank you for being a part of builds.gg, and may the best builds win!Sincerely,
