Please note that entry #14 and #24 are duplicates. Vote the same for both of them, please. You don't need to play #14.

Our architects have slaved away over hot keyboards, building holds for your satisfaction that can be polished off in one hour or less for this contest. But we have to declare a winner, a master of the 'easy yet challenging' style of hold so under-represented on our Holds board. This responsibility falls to you, gentle reader.

So, grab your napkins and tuck in. You've got some work to do, and so I'm going to give an extra helping of time to finish digesting. Voting closes on:

Local Time:11-06-2006 at 12:00 AM

But How Do I Vote, Mister

It's easy, Timmy! You'll just need a stopwatch, clock, sextant or similar time-measuring device. Even an hourglass will do, so long as it runs for an hour and it's not too heavy to lift.

Play through each hold (you'll find a .zip file of every entry in the contest attached to the post below, and below that you'll find every entry attached separately) for one hour only, using your handy stopwatch/clock/whatever to make sure of the time. (Many of these holds are one level - you can also use the in-game stats, which you can access by pressing Enter.) At the conclusion of that hour, or the hold, stop playing and write down your score for that hold. (You're allowed to keep playing the hold if you didn't finish it, but you can't change your vote because you kept playing and the ending was awesome. That's, that's not allowed.)

Judge the hold on fun, where 1 is I'm not paying attention when voting and 10 is an excellent (unless you're the author of a particular entry, in which case, vote 10 for that entry). This is a nebulous concept that means different things to different people, but you should be able to easily work out what it means for you. Did you enjoy one hold a lot and another not so much? If so, the first hold should be rated higher. Did spelling errors impact your enjoyment of the hold? Mark it down! It's important to be flawlessly consistent across your voting, and it's doubly important to vote for every one.

Note that some holds may not be completable. If you can't stand a hold, or you suspect it can't be completed, it's okay to make your decision before the hour has passed. Similarly, if you've finished a hold, but you still have some time left, it's okay to play out the full hour.

What Are We Fighting For

After everyone's voted, each entry will have an average score. The author of the highest scoring entry will win one hundred rank points and a copy of DROD: The City Beneath an item of their choice from the Prize Pile. The second and third placers will win 50 and 25 rank points, respectively.

You can only win one prize, no matter how many entries you have. If you get first place, you can't win third as well - the third prize will go to the fourth-best entry.

Also, everyone who participates in this contest as their first will receive 10 rank points. Contests are fun! Really!

Get To It Already

We've got a whole mess of entries sourced from all over the globe, and each has brought their own interpretation on the essence of fun, with their own personal recipes. We've got some rookies and some old stalwarts, top-flight architects and apprentice artisans, and yet the only thing it'll comes down is your votes. Who will take the Iron Architect title? Who epitomises the superior flavour of fun?

Whose cuisine reigns supreme?!
