Hello Tibians!

TibiaQA.com is happy to announce the Quick Tour Design contest! The goal of this contest is to help users (especially new users) easily learn what TibiaQA is and how is it different from regular discussion forums.

Contest rules

  1. The deadline for submissions is 1. February 2020, 23:59 CET
  2. Players participate by posting an answer containing the Quick Tour in this topic
  3. The Quick Tour is supposed to easily introduce new users into the TibiaQA world and should follow the guidelines listed below
  4. The Quick Tour can take absolutely any form - they can be a bullet-list, an essay, an infographic, a poster, a GIF, a video, or a combination of various styles
  5. The whole entry needs to be in the English language
  6. There's no limit on the submissions from a single user
  7. TibiaQA.com team cannot participate in the contest

Quick Tour guidelines

The following points will be taken into consideration when scoring the entries. Most of the necessary information that you can include in the Quick Tour can be found in our Help Center

  • The Quick Tour should be straightforward enough so that users who do not speak English natively can understand it
  • The Quick Tour should be concise - it should take no more than 2 minutes to process everything for the average user
  • The Quick Tour should present the information in a creative way that will encourage users to go through and learn from it
  • The Quick Tour should touch on the following aspects at the minimum (but it may be more than that)
    • TibiaQA is not a regular forum
      • No chit-chat, no discussions - just questions, and answers
      • Well-formulated questions are important since they will likely be read by thousands of other users
      • Not all question types are well suited for TibiaQA
    • The importance of voting
      • Votes indicate usefulness/correctness of the posts
      • Up-votes move answers up so better answers are displayed first
      • Votes increase user reputation points what in consequence unlocks more moderation privileges for them

Prizes

  1. Golden Trophy of Excellence + Omniscient Owl + Blue Sphere + 60 TibiaQA reputation points
  2. Silver Trophy of Excellence + Hero's Medal + Yellow Rose + 30 TibiaQA reputation points
  3. Bronze Trophy of Excellence + Badge of Glory + Unicorn Figurine + 15 TibiaQA reputation points

Selecting top entries

  • The TibiaQA.com team will pre-select top 5 entries and forward those entries to CMs and Fansite admins
  • CM and fansite admin votes will determine the top 3 that will be rewarded
  • The final results are expected to be announced on 9. February 2020

Disclaimer: By participating in this contest, you agree that your entries can be used in any way by TibiaQA.com team to enhance the website, no matter if your contest entry wins or not.

Any questions related to the contest can be posted as a comment to this post. Please reserve the answers for contest entries. If you have more general questions about TibiaQA mechanics, you can also post them as a separate question on Meta.

We are looking forward to creative ideas and awesome entries!

The 2 minutes of talking is proven to be quite difficult I have to talk soo fast xD Also, Im not going too overboard on what Im saying its just a lot of important details I want to mention

If you have a transcript or a list of things you want to mention, I can help to pick the most crucial ones or point things that may not be strictly necessary for the quick tour.

Here's my entry ^^

Added some bits to fill out the empty space

I like the way it was presented a lot! I think there's still room for two improvements: making the font size a little bigger and maybe re-wording/adding something from yourself to the text - currently, it mostly contains topic subjects to mention from the contest rules. Still, a good entry - thanks!

Are you talking about the headings or the body of text Ellotris? And you pretty much worded the websites keypoints perfectly to give people a gist but not overload them with info so didn't change much of it :P But I'll see what can be done :)
by (1.2k points)
No, the headings are perfect :) I was talking about the body of text in those orange rectangles. I don't think they need to be way bigger, but just slightly bigger will be awesome :)

Changed some of the text and the font size thanks :)

Here is my entry , It is editable 100% , all pics are free of copyright , and Im open to any modification , I didnt put too much exact data of some things since somethings change in time so I made it thinking on a good reliable info for long time. Also the vertical design is to make it easy to adapt to mobile devices. Hope you like it guys.

Hey! Just want to let you know- In August 2020 their moving the points up to 5,000 not 4,000. I think a good question here is should we mention how many points it takes to get the owl or should we just mention how the owl can be rewarded by contributing to the site.
by (16 points)
Yeah I know that. But I thought that as the contest is now in january, makes more sense to me to mention the 4,000 points and not the 5,000 points. Thanks for your comment

I passed fun day making it, special the little 3D version of the Omniscient Owl (Maybe in future can update it to a more original/detailed version).

Good luck to all entries!
