you serious? why dont they put it in english too I have never seen it mentioned here at all ever on the front page, nor the skinners forum. It seems very unfair to have it just for the other communities and not include the eng skinners as well. Maybe it was done on purpose that way who knows.

Anyways is there a place that has screenshots off all the work sent in for the community to at least see.

I entered it......... I did mention it to a couple of Skinners that were about on my MSN Messenger, but didn't post it far and wide... there are a few skinners that i know have entered it, Sorry Lead if I had seen you on any of the forums or Hyperlobby I would probably have mentioned it to you : But saying that a lot of people wouldnt have broadcasted it as to be honest it would reduced their chances of winning......... I agree Ubi should do a similar thing on the English forums too.... I dont know if they are going to put up some screenies, it would be cool http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I sent in My Beaufighter that i finished for it, and mentioned i had entered it in my post here..but that was in response to a query posted the day after about weathering....

taylortony: I would probably have mentioned it to you : But saying that a lot of people wouldnt have broadcasted it as to be honest it would reduced their chances of winning.........

exactly my point so its no challenge for them to went a prize woth a few hundred. very Very shady stuff.

Ubi should extend the contest and extend it another week or two to be fair and make it a real competition instead of a quiet one just for a few people keeping it on the dl to increase the chances of winning which is exactly why they should extend it. I really hope they do this, those are some really good prizes. And im one who actually paid for this whole game and series 30 sturmo 30 fb 30 aep 40 pf. Im also mad i didnt get paid for other work i did yet.

btw do you have ubi razz's email address?

UBI what do you say about increasing the deadline im sure the judges didnt make a decision yet.

Anyone know if sooty jutosca haddock hammered compans foobar have heard of this and entered this to me they are the best of the skinners and these people definatly need to enter in the contest if they have not.

I dont know and to be honest it was on the German site and in German, I read the rules in a Googlized English and it did not infer any country in particular... Fraid it's swings and roundabouts as the Auction stuff of late I believe was posted By UBI UK and not on the German site or German Ebay so they were unaware of it.
Also UBI Razz would not have any say in this as he is the UK forum Manager and there are different Managers for each Country...
Each country has their own thing and the fact that the German site held this I applaude, I wouldn't like you of heard about this if it was not for a good friend online who is German linking me to it and explained what was what, I then as said mentioned it to I think 2 or 3 other skinners that I have in my Messenger friends list.

The rules do state that 24:00 on the 28th was the cut off date and I think they are obligated to sticking to that, I would forsee some severly peeved people in German if the goalposts were suddenly moved to accomodate other entrants, especially if they have rushed their work to get it in for the deadline..... I think you will see that.

Would it not be better to push to try to get our own forum to do a similar thing?

Also would not some of the skinners who have been paid for their work or were involved in the production of PF doing the likes of the in game skins not be ruled out?, as surely the competion would be aimed at the amateur skinner, the fact they have paid for producing work in one shape or form be a bit like Oleg and the development team entering???

I do have to admit I was a bit sceptical entering, especially as it was on a German site but the rules as far as i read did not preclude me entering...... I also felt a bit uncomfortable entering due to the fact I do do a lot of skinning and although an amatuer at it like yourself, i still had guilt pangs because some new German skinners and first timers would possibly be entering this and their chances of winning will be restricted a lot if a lot of the better know skinners went in for it......... Not saying I have a chance, but i would like to see the likes of a young German skinner possibly having his first or second go at the likes of this winning http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

bump for the ubi community leaders, why were we not informed about this on the eng front page by extremeone nor by any moderators in our forums.

Simply because as said it is on the German site with its own Mods and Staff........ Our Mods speak and write English, they would be a bit stumped to try and Mod a site in German lol

Why would any of the staff here know about it? Do you regualrly go over there and read the German site in German Lead? obviously not because you missed it, so why do you expect our Mods too? End of the day no one that does not speak German will tend to vist the site because of the fact its in German, infact if you change the country code in here to the German one the way the site is set up prevents it opening........


I ain't meaning to sound negative, I am just trying to show that like you, no one else, Mods etc have anything to do with the German Site so would not have visited it either....

I would imagine the prize was supplied for a specific market by the manufacturer or regional distributer. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif Of course, one can always persue the conspiracy angle. . . http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

thx but the contest is over feb 28th was the deadline. It just seems unfair not letting all the communties know about it.

I mean I can understand if the contest was privately held for the german community only but it being a ubi contest it should have been made available on all the sites front pages. Those are some pretty big prizes.

Maybe they can hold a similiar contest for the russian french and eng communities with the same prizes, im sure alot of the top skinners would spend even more time on their works, and the community wins regaurdless getting all the top submissions
