    This is probably a good opportunity for me to say whilst we get the guidelines up, if anyone can gather evidenced support for an event they want to do, feel free to PM me and I'll sort it out with you myself, so no one's waiting for guidelines to be created. We had a staff meeting where we discussed quite a lot of stuff - donations (we need 'em)/donor rewards, advertising, CDEs/guilds, staff, devs, so we have a lot of stuff to do. Hopefully, we should be able to push out solid CDE guidelines fairly soon.

    Was the Create Halloween Build Comp delayed? The previous Community News post mentioned that the Competition details would be posted on October 10th.

    Due to the low player-count on the server, lack of interest in the event in addition to a lack of staff activity, I've decided to cancel the event. This doesn't rule out the potential for an event happening between now and the end of the year, but for now we simply don't have the resources.

    Damn, that's unfortunate. It would have been nice if it were still done as per tradition and just for the hell of it. Too late, I guess.
