What is ECO Looks?
Economical Looks is a contest in which you can present your pretty customization in order to help new traders and users with low-medium budget.
Isn't it against the site rules to host a contest?
No, it's against the rules to give out prizes, in this case there are NO actual prizes (NP items, NC items) giving out; if you should win, you'll get an art trophy to post on your pet lookup and nothing more, this is most certainly not against the site rules. plus, if you feel uncomfortable using the word contest you can replace it with "customization spotlight" or "style showdown" ^__^.
When and how did you come up with the site idea?
The site evolved from the guide I wrote 2 years ago named: NC for Customizers
which suggested ideas for customizing with more common NC items and NP items as alternatives for popular and expensive NC items. later on, I've added the ECO looks section as a part of the guide to show how you guys applied the guidelines suggested there. few month later, on Sep 6th 2012, ECO looks got it's own page. as for my first guide, other users extended the idea of NP and NC alternatives and created more elaborated separate guides which are listed on the side bar.
Why do you have the "Meital's Favorite" section?
Because I can!... Just Kidding, I have this section because I can't participate in my own competition and I would like to voice my opinion as a customizer on the outfit I absolutely loved.
Is it possible to win Both Eco Looks and "Meital's Favorite"?
Everything is possible!
Why can I only enter one pet?
You can only enter one pet for each competition (one pet a month) so that others will have equal chances wininig the competition.
Do I get a trophy for wining?
YES!, winners will get a personalized trophy for wining the competition, which will hold the outfit they've created, their username and the competition date. you can see the trophies and past winners in the ECO Looks Hall of Fame
. In addition, every participant will get a 4th place banner they can use oh their pet lookup; the banner is not personalized.
Who is choosing the winners?
You guys!. the voting stage will begin at the middle of each month, I'll post boards on the Customization chat and the NC chat.
The only exception is the "Meital's Favorite outfit", I will choose the winner myself.
Can I change my entry?
Yes, you can change your entry up until the voting stage. once the voting stage is in session, you can no longer change your customization.
Can I change my entry more than once?
Sorry, but no. It takes a lot of time, which unfortunately I do not have. If you enter a customization, please make sure that you 100% like it.
How do I enter the contest?
First step: Fill the application form.
Second step: Neomail me the application or post it on one of my boards.
Where can I find your boards?
I'll be posting on the NC boards and the Customization boards.
