UniWiki Contest - Win $50 at the EVE Store!

Image Contest - Win $50 at the EVE Store!

For over 6 and a half years, Eve University has been on a mission to educate and assist all new players of EVE Online, and when we launched UniWiki, followed by our Planetary Interaction guide for Tyrannis, we moved a big step closer to documenting the game mechanics in EVE. But while we have one element documented, there are still many many more to go!

So, we are running a bit of a competition. The contest is open to almost all EVE players, and to enter you simply need to update or write new articles on UniWiki. The four people with the most detailed, comprehensive and professional looking article edits will each win an EVE Store coupon code worth $50, provided by CCP, and postage and packaging costs will be covered by them too! Should you have any queries please submit a petition to the EVE Online Community team and they will be happy to help.

The contest will start at 00:01 EVE time on Monday 20th September, and run until 23:59 EVE time on Sunday September 26, so you have a bit of time to prepare and choose your subject.

Entering the Contest
To edit UniWiki, you do not need to be an Eve University member or alumni, simply a forum account with us - simply an active EVE Online account. To set up a new account, visit http://forum.eveuniversity.org/register from the in game browser.

1. Log into UniWiki via http://wiki.eveuniversity.org/w/index.php?title=Special:UserLogin
2. Use the search function to find the article you will edit.
3. Click the "Edit" link at the top of the page.
4. Make your changes or add your contribution.
5. Add the text "{{uwc}}" to the top of the page if it not already there.
6. Fill in the summary box, and click preview.
7. Ensure that everything looks as you would expect, then click Submit.


Wiki Editing Tips
- Find a subject you know well which does not already have a detailed guide.
- If possible, avoid working on articles which are already identified as being entered into the competition.
- Where you can, concentrate on one single subject.
- Include images where appropriate, and use formatting to ensure high quality results, and link to sources.
- Keep your content EVE related! Guides on sniping in Medal of Warfare: Call of Honor won't win!
- Avoid making multiple small changes, and use the "preview" function to check things are right before submitting.
- If you aren't familiar with wiki markup, you can use the WYSIWYG editor instead.

Re: UniWiki Contest - Win $50 at the EVE Store!

Aw shucks, I asked for the Manager title too soon :D

Great initiative, neat to see it open to the EVE community at large and supported by CCP. Curiously, does that mean there have been any updates on the UniWiki vs EVElopedia angle?

Could there be a clarification whether this only means managers and directors or includes any officers too?

Re: UniWiki Contest - Win $50 at the EVE Store!

Looks like time's up.

Totally wanted to get in on this, but real life got in the way this weekend. If this is ever run again, I think a second week might be a good idea! :)

Good luck to all those who submitted entries!
