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.

Can I make a poster using crayons or paints on a piece of paper or just graphics?

@Tynusiiaa - yes. As mentioned in the contest rules it can be literally any form. I'd just recommend that you take a high-quality scan or photo of that hand-drawn poster if you decide to go with it :) Good luck!

The prizes could be more even , maybe changing unicorn figure for the blue sphere , the first prize is already taking the owl. Im saying this because on some contest is almost impossible to win because there is graphic designers that participates on this contest just for taking the prizes. That people have a very big advantage from the rest.

good way. maybe not sphere, but unicorn figure is worth too small than other prices. I know cipsoft gives you restrictions, but in my opinion the rewards are probably more balanced with each other.

Hello everyone and thanks for the great entries! Your Quick Tours look amazing :)

What if my presentation isn't a video, but an interactive presentation, such as Prezi? Is not a video to be downloaded, how should I proceed?
by (2,885 points)
For Prezi, a link to the presentation is sufficient

When I was thinking how to present TibiaQA I decided to use presentation. This is in my opinion quite unique, more interesting and eye-friendly form than the text itself, thanks to the division of the text into individual shapes or slides. Moreover I could present some aspects graphically. I can also edit it any time, add or delete some info, what I can not do in case of a video.

An additional advantage of my presentation is that by choosing from the „main menu” manually – we can skip previous slides, which are not interesting for us. For example – I want to skip information what is TibiaQA, so I choose second section – „How it works?”.

The presentation would look good with TibiaQA’s modern and minimalistic desing, the colours correspond to the logo.

Owls are unfortunately only a hand-drawing, but maybe someone consider it as advantage… or at least additional effort xD It is my own interpretation of Omniscient Owl in a comic style! Some of them looks better, other worse but it is not a contest for the best drawing so I wasn’t focuse on it.

Isn’t it too long?

We all have different reading rates. I checked it with a stopwatch and read whole presentation took me 1:35 to 2:20, my friends did it too and their result was 1:40-1:53 – I decided that presentation is in accordance with the rules (2 minutes).

Hope you like my idea to present TibiaQA :)

Here's my entry ^^

Added some bits to fill out the empty space

by (2,885 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 :)

I like the design, but the content could use some improvements. There are many grammatical errors and some points do not really represent what TibiaQA is well (e.g. things against the rules will be punished).

I made some changes to the information. I agree with you that the previous information about the rules does not fit very well with tibiaQA. I also checked grammar and I have made some fixes.

Entry #1

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).

Entry #2

A new version with less words and less details. Something more minimalist.

Good luck to all entries!

I don't mean to be rude, but it seems you're copying other designs and information, moving it a little bit, adding your own thing and calling it a day. Might just be me though.
by (467 points)
Its okay, you are free to think and say what you want. If you feel bad / have problem or have doubt about my entries, you can contact with the Admin (Ellotris Guardian) using the email (tibiaqa.adm@gmail.com) and ask him by it.
Anyway, good luck and have nice day!

Hmm I like your second entry. In my opinion sentence "Get 5k reputations~~" should be more visible, also there is mistake with word - Reputations (not reputatios)
by (467 points)
Thanks,  going to fix it.

If there is any need to change anything in the video I can with no problem edit it quickly, my main language is not english but I hope i've spelled most things right
