Hello, Growtopians!

It’s time to commence the new cycle! So, we're opening a new thread and a new option to submit your WOTD entries!

What do you get when you win WOTD?
- An awesome trophy magically appears in your inventory
- "WOTD Winner" is shown every time someone enters your world
- Your world is added to the WOTD winner's list in-game: /top
- 10 Growtokens
- And above all! RESPECT!

Cool right?


But there are regulations to follow to be eligible to win the much coveted WOTD Award!

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
  • World name
  • Your GrowID (because we can't see them sometimes and just in-case you changed your name. )
  • A quick description of your world
  • Latest Render of the world

**NEW!** We are now allowing players to submit their entries on INSTAGRAM. Just post your entry with the "Entry Requirements" and include this hashtag:
  • For June entries: #growwotdjun19
  • For July entries: #growwotdjul19
  • For August entries: #growwotdaug19

RULES (June - August 2019 Cycle)
  • Owners should be the ones nominating their worlds. Nobody else is allowed to submit your entry for you.
  • A Bulletin board next to the white door giving credit to other players who helped with building/funding the world, music creator, worlds they have inspired/copied design from (If it's from the Web please mention that) and any other information should be mentioned. You can also use alternative boards, such as Guestbook.(You can choose to represent this info in a different creative way if you like but it must be near the start area of the world so we can easily see and check them)
  • You must credit pixel art sources and/or music inspiration.
  • At least basic Jammers (Punch and Zombie) must be placed within the world, unless the world does not require having one of them. Note: Promising that the jammers will be placed inside the world if it wins will not be considered.
  • Vend worlds, Storage and Pixel Art only worlds will not be considered.
  • Guild Headquarters (Worlds) are welcome! However, as the world is owned by one person, the prize will only be given to the owner. It's up to the Guild how they will make use of the WOTD prize in case the world wins.


So you want to win eh?

TIPS:
- Plus points are given to in-game event theme worlds which explain old and/or new mechanics of the in-game event to help guide new players
- Plus points are given to worlds with new/creative ideas or unique/original mechanics
- Plus points are given to worlds using recent items/blocks from recent or current events
- Plus points are given to worlds placing doors/portals to worlds they have inspired/copied design, music and anything else from.
- Negative points are given to worlds with doors linking to Vend/Shop worlds or any other worlds that are not related.
- Owners who have been banned for more than 3 days in the last 6 months WILL NOT be considered.
**If the punishment has been cancelled before it expires automatically, the ban is not counted and the player/world will still be eligible for the WOTD.

FAQ:
--------
What are the changes made in this cycle?
- We added INSTAGRAM as an additional venue to submit WOTD entries, provided the post includes the "Entry Requirements" and the #GROWWOTD hashtag. To make it easier for players to submit entries and to give other players who has no access to the forum to submit theirs too.
- We will only look at the world owner's punishment/s. We will no longer consider the admins' ban record.
- We will not consider owners who were banned for more than 3 days in the last 6 months.
- We are now allowing a world entry to be submitted more than once but with a 3 day gap. (PLEASE DO NOT SPAM)

Would I be able to nominate my world in the next cycle and have a chance to be chosen as WOTD?
- Yes, you can nominate your world every cycle but we highly encourage you to try and make improvements in the world rather than just nominating the same world as it is in the next cycle. We also encourage you to create a thread to collect feedback on how to improve your world and we might leave some comments there in some rare cases.

My world was chosen as a WOTD before the 2018 trophy was launched, am I eligible to get the new trophy?
- Yes, you are! Simply make sure you have the Ultra Trophy 3000 in your inventory and contact support, we will replace the Ultra Trophy 3000 with the new 2018 version.

Can I nominate more than one world in the same cycle?
- Yes, you can! You can nominate as many worlds in the same cycle as you like.

Why do copied worlds get plus points? Does this mean I can just copy a world and win?
- Most probably will have nearly ZERO chance of winning a WOTD if you choose to simply copy an old WOTD. The whole point of this rule is simply we don't mind if you end up copying a small part from a previous world (a cool looking tower, house decoration ...etc) as long as you are honest enough to clearly show that in your world (which we also hope that would give credit to the original owner and traffic to his/her world) but that will also mean your world must be different enough!



Alrighty then! That should explain everything. Now go create your world and start submitting!
