    Hey Minetimers! We are excited to announce that Minetime will be holding a Christmas contest again this year -- and with even better prizes! As you may have already noticed, we recently decorated our lobby with a large Christmas tree. Under the Christmas tree, there are eight presents; each present has a sign on it. The signs on the presents are descriptions of the prizes you can win in this contest (prizes are also listed below). If you would like to enter this contest, please carefully read this thread in its entirety.

    Prizes You Can Win:
    • MVP rank
    • Premium rank for you and five friends
    • Special rainbow [Potato] prefix (it looks like this)
    • Timeless rank for one month
    • Minecraft account gift code
    • Box of cookies baked by Emily and Collin mailed to you (we're not kidding)
    • Ability to fly in Minetime’s lobbies
    • All packages in the Extras section of Minetime’s webstore
    *Unless mentioned or implied, all prizes apply to every server on the Minetime network (except for Empires). If you apply for the box of cookies prize and win it, you must give us your address via email and notify us of any food allergies you have in order to receive your prize. We will ship the boxes of cookies to you as soon as possible, but we cannot guarantee that it will arrive on Christmas day. The Minecraft account gift code prize is intended to be used to give someone you know a Minecraft account or give yourself another Minecraft account, but you can do whatever you want with it.

    How to Enter the Contest:
    • Step 1: Create an account on our website at https://www.minetime.com/login. (or login if you already have an account).
    • Step 2: Post a status about which prize you want to win on your profile (it's here).
    • Step 3: Vote for Minetime here at least one time before December 21.
    • Step 4: Sign in to your Twitter account on https://twitter.com. If you don’t already have a Twitter account, create one at https://twitter.com/signup.
    • Step 5: Tweet to enter using this link (for username put your WEBSITE username, NOT your Minecraft username unless they are the same; you MUST USE the hashtag #MinetimeChristmas)
    *The only edits you should make to the tweet are inserting your forums username and the #MinetimeChristmas hashtag. Do not make any other edits to the tweet. Please also make sure that your Tweets are not protected to make sure that Collin and I can view them. "Protect my Tweets" is disabled by default, but if your Tweets are protected and your account is private, you can disable this in Settings -> Security and privacy. If you, for whatever reason, cannot complete all five of the above steps, you cannot enter the contest. There are no alternate ways to enter.

    Please keep in mind that the winner selection process for our contest is pseudorandom (aside from you telling us the prize you're entering to win on your profile), so writing things like "please pick me" in your profile status will not increase your chances of winning. Please only post one #MinetimeChristmas Tweet. Tweeting more than once will disqualify you from the contest.

    Winners will be announced on December 21 and will be awarded their prizes on Christmas Day. If you end up as a winner, you may also give your prize to another player in the spirit of the Christmas Season. I have attached some pictures of our edited lobby below. Merry Christmas!

    Currently labeling the presents in the lobby. After I'm done I'll remove the glass wall blocking access to the tree. :)

    EDIT: Task complete -- trees are up!

    If you are unable to complete all five steps, you're unable to enter in the contest. There are no alternate methods.

    The contest is done in a set way. The tool used picks a random tweet with a selected hashtag, thus if there's no tweet you can't get a chance to win. We're sorry for the inconvenience, but maybe try having a friend do it for you as discussed above! :)
    (Remember to not have multiple entries from the same twitter account)
