Hello builds.gg Members!
October's BOTM Contest has come to a close, and we are pleased to announce our official winners:

Congratulations to ExploreModding and Tech Cave!
Those who have been following the contest may have noticed that the standings changed towards the end of it. Builds.gg prides itself on running contests that are not only fun, but also fair. Thus, if we see any unusual activity by people participating in the contest, we will be compelled to take action.
Some of the issues that cropped up during this contest were people soliciting votes either through their social media following, or (worse) via private messaging random people through various platforms. While we appreciate the enthusiasm of these contestants, spamming random people or soliciting votes via social media advertising is prohibited under our contest’s anti-spam rules.
As such, the following actions were taken:
While getting votes taken away is disappointing, we felt it necessary to uphold the spirit of fairness for our contests, and will further emphasize these actions in our contest rules going forward.
Speaking of which, we are lining up another exciting contest for the month of November for builds.gg members, so stay tuned!
Congratulations once again to our October BOTM winners!
The builds.gg Team
