Hi Everyone! We have had very good contributions recently, but we can always use more! We ran this contest back in 2014 and it went pretty well so I'm doing it again!

The winner will get a $500 gift card at Newegg or Amazon
Two runners up will get a $100 gift card each at Newegg or Amazon
(If the winners are outside the US, or really doesn't want it from Newegg or Amazon, we can negotiate the site)

Some rules:
  • The code contribution must be 'retail-like'. Meaning the behavior of the code must emulate retail 100%
  • The code must conform to the current 'standards' regarding structure, tabs, etc
  • The code must be of good quality. Don't make us refactor or rewrite. If you have to ask us how to do something, you probably should go back and become more familiar with the existing codebase
  • Don't try to sneak any back doors or malicious code by us. You will be immediately disqualified and banned
  • These rules are subject to change

The winner will be decided by me, with input from the other major contributors
- The contributions by the voters will not be weighed as heavily, but they are eligible

You can get bonus points for completing the following (things that need to be worked on):
  • Beseiged full implementation
  • NPC fellow AI full implementation
  • 100% completion of rank missions across all nations
  • Abssyea full completion
  • Fishing 99.999% retail-like
  • Mog house effects 100%
  • Plant growing system 100%
  • Also see this worklist page on the wiki

When does it start?
- November 29th

When does it end and the winners are chosen?
- December 30 2017 midnight-ish eastern time

First off, I would like to thank *everyone* (contributors, staff/reviewers, and users), without everyone working together toward improving and enhancing Darkstar we would all still be using pXI ;)
