    =================================


    So the story goes, Cassandra made a gingerbread house and posted a photo of it in our staff chat. I jokingly said that she should enter it in the Christmas decoration contest here. Adam then had the idea that we should do a real life gingerbread house competition.

    So now here we are.

    This competition will go until January 1st, 2016.




    1st: STATUE, 25K DONATION COINS
    2nd: STATUE, 10K DONATION COINS
    3rd: STATUE, 5K DONATION COINS



    RULES:
    NO STEALING PHOTOS FROM THE INTERWEBS.
    YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE "UOF" OR "UO FOREVER" IN YOUR PHOTO WITH CANDY.



    See what you can come up with, here is an example of what i expect from all of you:

    Devil's Advocate here, what's to keep someone from hunting down a photo like the example provided and attempt to pass it off as their own? What will be used to determine the legitimacy of the participant's entries?

    Ok cool. I would make a gingerbread house but I think it'll get eaten before I can get a picture of it.

    I was going to say the same thing...people are going to take advantage of this.

    Rules should include that pictures must be taken of the gingerbread house In Progress as well as a local newspaper that has the dates or proof of creation aka including pictures of your self building the gingerbread house, etc. Wife and I think this is fun and are considering entering.

    haha I think anyone here with kids will use their kids one and just put UOF on it last minute which is fine too!
    I'll be making one with my daughter anyways so that's what i will be doing. I'll have to try to coax her into making it more medieval.

    Some people would prefer to be (somewhat) anonymous on the internets. Shane's idea or Faytality's idea get my +1.
    Same here
