Join to comment
 Group admin 
It's the end of life as we know it, and for some reason you managed to live through it all. You just servived the apocalypse, what are you going to do to keep on living? Life may seem like it would be better after the event, but now it is even worst because now you are one of many who hunt for the same limited resorces and everyday is a battle.

This is a theme suggested by Inferno 13 who won the last challenge, and he is allowed to make some changes to the following rules and scorings.

~Titles do not need to be specific
~Links to this group are needed in your entry
~Link to your entry must be provided in this thread in order to be judged

Scoring Total: 20

Originality: 5 There are more than one kind of post-apocalyptic setting, did you do anything out of the ordinary or really unique for one of the categories?

Build: 10 Techniques, styles, does it feel like a post-apocalyptic setting

Presentation: 5 Grammar, clear pictures, working links if you use them.

Judging commenses July 25th, and remember that Inferno 13 can make changes, so make sure everything is in order before posting entries.

Sometimes the U doesn't fully connect and the E gets hit alot when I want to type an R so what do you want from me? I'm not changing it though because it's rather funny.

I don't know, the guy who came up with the theme still hasn't said anything more. Just build anything Post-Apocalyptic be it a smashed building, a half beaten truck, something from the movie The Road, something, anything really.

So I ask my cousin what she thinks of when she thinks of the word apocalypse or post-apocalyptic and she's like "Lipstick?"

She was just confused for some reason.

Well duh! Like, everybody knows that there's an obvious correlation between post-apocalyptic and lipstick. They're essentially the same thing. :3

Just a little note, I'm going to try to have my entry in by today or tomorrow to make room for other builds, one of which is also a contest build that ends around the same time this one does, and on Friday I am going to central California to visit awesome relatives for a few days so I will not be active then.

So yeah.

I'm going to enter this (my first ever contest). Don't think I stand a chance, but it seems like a good theme. About halfway through at the moment as it keeps asking for 'a bit more of this' and 'a little tweak here'.

I forgot. Part of the reason is that I get to my computer, and after a few things, I have to go and leave my house or watch a show I enjoy because my dad had recorded it and since we use VHS style recording, we can't wait too long after stuff has been recorded since we like quite a bit of shows in my family. Another reason is that because of our topic being put up late I ended this contest on a Wednesday. They usually end Fridays and I judge the following day. I remembered about this Yesterday, but at the wrong time and when I was able to do something about it, I forgot, again. Anyway, this puts us back on schedule and a new topic will be made today and all will be well. Scores will be up in a bit.

I feel like some things didn't get the correct scores, but this was one of those categories where the build could be good and then the other two components could be the downfall while another could have higher scores in the other two and the build not be as good. I could have easily scored stuff considerably lower on one of the entries because I didn't agree with the build score of Nicholas but then it would be more biased because I didn't like their build and therefore score presentation and originality low as well.
