    All the winners are Winter Olympics themed. Though some are a commentary on Sochi (and it's facilities) itself, rather than the Games per se.

    Congrats to the winners. It seems like it did have to be Olympic-themed.

    How about some keys for the people who did not interpret the instructions the same way. I'm guessing there are quite a few of us... :) (Maybe like a top 5 or top 10?)

    A few of them were not remotely Olympic themed. The todo was not Wildstar or Olympic themed. Almost none of them had to do with Wildstar.

    If only I had keys to spare like that - keep an eye out for the next competition, coming soon.

    What sucks is some people asked on this thread the day it was posted (2nd page) but there was no response. In the future it might be beneficial to monitor contest threads a bit more closely for those looking to get clarification on rules that might otherwise seem blurry.

    Organizers -- it'd have been great if you clarified you were only considering entries about the Olympics. For future contests, please clarify and don't change the rules as you go.

    Are you serious? Where did it say that it had to be Wildstar OR Olympics themed?? People even asked and there was no response, pretty lame.

    Nothing more needs to be said.

    Thanks for a fun contest Zap- liked this contest much more than many I see on other websites. Enjoyed the winning entries as well.

    Yeah apparently a lot of us took that as meaning that was how they chose the picture/setting. That's why the question was asked, but never got answered.


    If their instructions had said...
    Your entry email must include...
    - Your Olympic themed caption in a plain text format
    It might have cleared up any grey area.

    I think a lot of people, myself included, didn't know the caption had to be Olympic themed and disqualified themselves. Very disappointing, but oh well. The game will have to launch sooner or later.
