Please someone tell me why do I have only 15 Trapdoors, and 4 scripts.

NONE has bought my scripts or trapdoors, and for trapdoors I don't see how we can buy 5 trapdoors, because minimum is 10. I see that someone has 9 trapdoors. did he bought them with 0.9 Greckles?

I can't build my hold until this prblem is fixed.
and I remember Meckmeck what there was in my suprise box:
-6 Seeps
-2 Goblins
-1 Decoy
-2 Tunnels
-2 Roaches
-4 Lines of Script

And I supose that everybody starts with 4 lines of script.

Unlock Custom Voice : (unlimmited) : 30 Greckles

Special offer : Give me a certain amount of Roaches (Max. 12) and you
get another monster for them.

Offer is outdated


I bought 9 trapdoors, and 9 * 2/3 = 6 Greckles,
but now I see that it's 10 trapdoors, so then I have 90?

And also bought the anoying Monster Pack, so I have 14 Wubbas & 14 Golems.

I PM-ed you this date about it:"14/01/2006 at 12:58"

Relax all! MeckMeck will correct it if you PM him about it. I had a wrong trapdoors myself and I gave him the right figure and he fixed it. Just PM him.

I encourage you to build with what you figured you had and then let MeckMeck's records catch up. Remember you only had to keep track of one account he had to watch over some 22+/- accounts.

robin has indeed 14 Golems & Wubbas. But 90 Trapdoors are correct. He orderd 9 (and trapdoors were sold in 10 packs). Its quite stupid to debit him 18/30 Greckles.

Update.

Sorry if I've been away for so long. I guess the exams caught up with me; I forgot about DROD and nearly missed the contest. Could I just confirm that I am still eligible for entry, even though I didn't barter?

Nevertheless, in the past 6 hours I was able to finish an entry for this contest, although it was horrendous thinking up puzzles with so few monsters/elements. The result is probably the most minimalistic hold I've ever built to date, and it is admittedly a bit ugly. Shall I send it to you, Daniel, or post it here?

Also, I guess it might be unfair of me to suggest this, but would it be acceptable if people judged the hold's puzzles more on the basis of its limited contents, rather than comparing how many elements were in the hold?

Unfortunately, I will be unable to complete my hold. However, my ranking will be entirely based of the fun of the hold and nothing more.

I will also be judging by fun. How well someone spent their greckles should have no influence on anyone's vote. How well someone used the resources to add to the mood of the hold is mostly part of the fun factor, so that's covered.

I believe I've sent mine in. I really believe it!

Now, to celebrate by drinking an alcoholic beverage!
:pepsi
(Well, Pepsi's as close as I'm gonna get at my age, besides grape juice.)

P.S. In all fairness, you should know that when I needed crumbly walls I could not get them. I had to go with secret walls instead. However, secret walls are not conspicous. So in the icy 2S of my hold, secret walls are located at:

They have the same function as crumbly walls; in addition, there is a secret wall in 1W; but you should be able to see that.

I sent mine in two days ago but haven't received a confirmation yet. I resent it today in case it got lost in the email shredder. Has anyone gotten a confirmation email or PM? I do not want to miss out on this I had too much fun making my hold hope you all have too much fun playing it. :lol

[edit: Got confirmation from MeckMeck :w00t ]

I plan to just judge the fun factor. That is why I left all my green doors ajar (there but open) so you could pass up a room if you just wanted to look around, but I think you will have too much fun and want to conquer them all. :fun

In the first post. The deadline is today. There's no specific time, so I suppose Meckmeck should accept entries until it's 27th of January in every timezone.

How long will we have time to vote? Nearly 20 holds with at least 6 rooms in each is a lot to play. Plus I'll propably spend most of the next week reading for exams.

Maybe until it is 15:00 in every timezone?

Anyways, we've got 2 days without school in bonus! Today and tommorow!

Which means i can take the time to vote in every entry before monday.

Yeah, an actual time would be better so I could know if I have enough time to finish it tomorrow. :/

Oh no! I somehow thought that crumbly walls were unlimited. Now my hold has a couple of crumbly walls more than it should. When is the deadline? I may be able to fix it tonight if there's time.

It gives Meck time to make sure all the holds only use the resources their architects had.

Oops. I forgot something in a trapdoor puzzle (people can just defeat the monsters, leave, re-enter, and do the puzzle). In addition, I realize that I have an extra secret wall for aesthetics. The other 5 secret walls either deal with goblins in narrow passages or seperate chambers in brained rooms. So I'll have to re-enter my entry.

I'M LOUDER THAN YOU, CHACO!

I regret that I didn't buy an organic pack at the beginning of the contest. I look forward to playing yours also, Chaco, because I'm obsessed with tar and mud. However, I won't just vote a 10 for my own entry and leave everyone else with a 1. (Maybe I'll blindly give everyone a 10...)

Now I did create a UAA (Underfunded Architect's Association) and give it a seal. Of course, I was too poor to craft it out of trapdoors or custom floors. So, just to tell the world, that was at Chaco's inspiration. There's also a line of script where Beethro explains the seal, but I didn't have enough lines of script left to have the line end on room exit.

By the way, if Chaco has a different seal, I'll just say that the association was too poor to meet and agree upon a single seal.
