Hi all! It's time for: MINORITY RULE!

In this luck-based game, I will give two choices (A vs B), and all you need to do is reply to the appropriate question thread with your selection and pray that you are part of the minority! This is because at the end of the deadline I'll tally the answers and the selection with the most votes loses. They get eliminated, and the winners will go on to the next round, and so on until there's only one winner left. In the case of a tie, players will have to re-vote again. If there are two people left at the end of these rounds, they'll both win.

- 5 points for participating
- 10 points for surviving each round

DEADLINE for 1ST QUESTION: Wednesday, May 14th, 11:59 EST

All comments are screened.

7.04: [Contest] Art Contest - Green

This activity will have voting. For this contest, all you have to do is submit a piece of drawn art featuring the color green. You can depict a character who (or a setting that) has a green color scheme, take someone who doesn't typically wear green and put them in the color, experiment with a green palette, etc. -- it's up to you. :)

This contest is only open for two weeks so don't think you have to submit a polished masterpiece -- it's mainly just to get your creative juices flowing.

DEADLINE: Thursday May 15 @ 11:59P EDT (3:59AM GMT)
POINTS: You may submit one piece of artwork worth 50 points
- First place: +175 points
- Second place: +125 points

7.03: Tag Banners

As is traditional, gonna start this cycle off with some tag banners! This challenge is super easy: just make a small banner with your name/ username, the class you've been sorted into, and a picture that fits your class. You can then use this tag banner while sorting, submitting to contests, etc. (anytime you'd need to specify your team name).

Tag banners should be no more than 350 px wide, and 200 px tall. (Wider tag banners okay as long as the height is significantly less than 200 px.)

Submit your banner in the comments to get 10 points for your team.

DEADLINE: Thursday May 15 @ 11:59P EDT (3:59AM GMT)

Here is a comprehensive FAQ for contests in [community profile] ultima_arena. Contests are a special kind of activity where submitted entries are voted on by members, and winning the contest gets you big rewards. Minigames are shorter and do not typically involve voting on member submissions.

For this contest, write an in-game scene from the point of view of a Non-Playable Character (NPC). I use the term NPC loosely, but ideally the main target I had in mine is for characters in game who appear like, once. Someone you don't know the name of, even. It's up to your discretion, however, any "important" non-player character works as well (Regent Cid in FFIX, for example).

Your fic must be between 500 to 1000 words.

DEADLINE: Friday May 17 @ 11:59P EST (4:59AM GMT)
POINTS: You may submit one fic worth 50 points (
- First place: +175 points
- Second place: +125 points
- Third place: +75 points
- Voting: 10 points

Be sure to leave your class in your comment.

EDIT: Please make sure to state which game your fic is from and maybe a brief description of the particular scene in question which I will include at the end of your fic UNLESS you particularly do not want it to be stated ... This is just to help the people who have never played the game before to better understand your fic.

3.06: Black & White Picspams

Note: because of the tardiness of the contests this month, this challenge will be the only second-half-month challenge for November.

Yes, we're having a picspam contest. For this contest you must arrange 8+ screencaps into a single picspam image, which you'll submit. The catch here is that at least half of your picspam must be in black & white. You can make an entirely greyscale picspam, or you can make a greyscale picspam with some splashes of color here and there, or you can mix full-color images with an equal amount of B&W images. It's up to you. The subject or theme of your picspam can be anything you like.

For some examples of picspams, see [ profile] picspammy.

- Your picspam must contain 8 or more FF screencaps or official art (no fanart)
- Your picspam must be at least 50% black & white
- Your entry must be a single image no wider than 750px and no taller than 1500px (any smaller dimension is fine)
- You may use text within your picspam image itself, but no outside commentary; the image is the only thing that will be put in the voting

DEADLINE: Wednesday November 30 @ 11:59P EST (4:59AM GMT)
POINTS: You may submit one picspam worth 20 points
- First place: +125 points
- Second place: +75 points
- Third place: +50 points
- Mod's choice: +20 points (if there are enough entries)
- Voting: 5 points

One last post before I go to bed:

I worked out a schedule for [ profile] ultima_arena contests. Each month there will be:
- one big month-long contest (February's is the outfit redesign contest)
- two smaller two-week-long contests in the first half of the month (the pairing short fic contest is one of them)
- two smaller two-week-long contests in the second half of the month

The timing was a little off on the community icon challenge, so now there's basically a dead week where there won't actually be a second contest going on. Instead, I'm going to use this week to collect image suggestions that will be used in the icon contest that will happen in the second half of this month.

So in this post, leave a picture you'd like to see people make icons from (along with the game it comes from just in case I don't know). Doing so before Monday Febrary 14 @ 11:59P EST will get you 5 points for your team, but you may leave images here at any time and they might be picked for future challenges.

You may submit more than one image if you like, but 5 is the max number of points you can get. Fanart is okay as long as the artist is credited.

I will be choosing 3-6 of these images for the next icon contest. Comments are screened. Be sure to leave your team name with your pic.
