Hello there! Welcome to our digital castle.

Whoa, it's been a week already? And around two months since we began the contest?
Time flies when you're having fun I guess and I've been having a lot of fun with this contest!
Next round is.. The round @bashadow created in our create a contest round which was the 3rd one we did.
Bashadow's - Word Contest Idea.
A very simple contest? Or is it? The contest only requires one paragraph, of four sentences. The length of the sentence is up to the writer. So here are the rules for this contest.
Write one paragraph.
Paragraph must have four (4) sentences.
All words must start with the same letter.
Here is what an entry could look like:
Four fat frogs flipped four fat flies frying. Four fancy ferrets found four funny felines. Four funny felines fought four ferocious foxes. Four fancy ferrets flew forward fighting four ferocious foxes fighting four fancy felines.
Your four sentences should sort of make sense, at least a little bit.
And also, we are going to be doing another bonus round this round since I have so many ideas and not enough time, and our IFC still needs help being brought to life more.
This bonus round will be creating a small simple slogan for the IFC.
Preferably something quick and catchy.
One I thought of was.. "Play a game, and help others".. My mother actually thought of a decent one when I talked to her about this and the one she thought of was "Turn life into a game".
However, I'm not sure either of those are quite right, I have a feeling one of you will come up with an even better one! :D
So.. Now that we're getting more established, we need a slogan!
One of the previous challenges was to create a logo for the IFC and we had a round to find a sponsor and bring more players back to the game, so.. We're sort of using the game to help create itself. And so far it's been working surprisingly well.
The community has come together in epic fashion to help construct this virtual world. And I have a feeling it will continue to do so for a while yet to come. :)
Also, I forgot to mention this last time, but no additional steem or SBD are awarded for these bonus rounds unless otherwise stated. If you win the bonus round however you will get 3XP like a normal round and a win on your record.
Another thing that's new that we are going to try to do is.. Start rewarding people more for good comments!
We want this to be a more socially active community and it'd also be nice to add an additional way for people to level up outside of the actual rounds.
I will put this in the next updates rules, but.. From now on us judges will be looking for the best comment to go with each round, and if the judges pick your comment you will get an additional 1 XP, UNLESS.. You submit your comment within the first 24 hours of the round starting, then you will receive 2 XP for being quicker and more active in the community.
And now a moment for our sponsors!
First up is @ats-david who has helped greatly! If you appreciate this contest or just his efforts in general you may want to look into voting for him as a witness at @ats-witness, he does a lot of other cool things for the community as well!
Next is @timcliff who has similarly helped out the contest significantly and who is also a witness who does a lot for the community, so likewise if you appreciate the efforts you may want to vote for him as witness also!
I'd also like to thank @theguruasia who has pledged at least 20 steem to the second and third place prizes and he said he may even donate more.
And @nxtblg who has been regularly resteeming and upvoting our challenges which has been a big help!
Plus one other person who has been helping a lot who deserves some credit is @soundlegion who has also been upvoting the contests regularly.
For this challenge.. If there's a tie.. We will do another round to see who wins.
The winner will be decided by whoever gets the most votes.
The only people who can vote in a qualifying sense are myself and the judges I've selected and we will vote by leaving a comment on the submission that we like the most and say something like.. "I vote for this one" and a reason why we voted would be good too, but is not mandatory.
You have until this challenges post payout ends to submit your post. Though we do accept late entries if you get it in before all the judges vote.
The challenge will finish after 7 days when the post ends and provides its payout cycle and unless there is a tie, the winner will gain the steem, the XP and have a point to go towards their long term win. (minus the 25% for curation)
