First of all, thank you contest holders for giving back to the community with your contests! Everyone appreciates it very much. The wonderful giving spirit of our community is one of the greatest things on this game.
There are some rules for the contests which need to be followed to help keep things fair and manageable and have our contests run with integrity.
1) Contests are entered and held at your own risk, so please don't offer anything you cant part with. Like everything in the game, if you make a deal with someone and it falls through, please don't email staff about it. There is no way I can chase everyone around with a stick who breaks a deal. Please see it as lesson learned. Please don't give people stuff unless you trust them to follow through on the deal. Artists please don't give people your artwork without payment up front. Put a watermark on it if you need to show it to them. If they don't pay up you are more than welcome to resell the artwork as a premade. If you feel something shady is going on, please use the report post button and report the post so we can investigate.
2) People holding contests - If we find that you are scamming people or not following through on your deals and contest prizes, you will be given a warning the first time and banned from the forum after that. So please, please don't hold contests unless you have prizes available to provide people. Also, please don't change prizes in the middle of a contest.
3) Do not use contests as a way to trade EBS between your accounts, rate horses for non-premium members, use one of your accounts to benefit another of your accounts or any other function that breaks game rules.
4) Contests that have an entry fee are not allowed.
