    We're in need of iron for our beacon pyramids... in need of a lot of iron, so we're hosting a server wide mining contest to get it :D.
    Use this link to promot it ingame: http://tinyurl.com/aqua-mining-competition

    The good news for you is... you can win prizes and earn money.

    Prizes:
    1) 1 million tims
    2) under water lot in Aquatia
    3) 1 beacon
    4) one lot on top of the water + 1 villager egg + 2 stacks of emeralds
    5) one lot on top of the water + 1 villager egg + 2 stacks of xp potions
    6) one lot on top of the water + 2 diamond breast plates + 2 stacks of emeralds
    7) one lot on top of the water + 1 diamond breast plate + 5 diamond picks
    8) one lot on top of the water + 1 diamond breast plate + 2 stacks of xp potions


    Meaning, that the first 8 teams will get a prize.

    [IMG][IMG][IMG]
    under water lot:
    33x33, below the sphere down to level 41

    on water lot:
    15x15, up 30 blocks (something like that), style requirement: similar to existing houses.

    At the end of the contest the highest ranked players / teams can pick a price starting with the winner.

    Rules:
    - competition starts: right now
    - competition ends: January 13th 24:00 server time or if we should run out of money first
    - you have to apply either as a team or as a single player
    - once points have been awarded they stay with the team/player (no redistributing of points to climb in the highscore. If you start on your own, and then join a team later, you cannot use your points to add them to a team)
    - no refunds
    - we do not care how you get the iron, as long as it's obtained legitly
    - tbritts13 and me (MarvinTheRobot) will be managing the competition, anyone else can enter

    Points:
    1 point for each iron ingot if we pay you 40 per ingot
    2 points for each iron ingot if we pay you 20 per ingot
    3 points for each iron ingot if we do not pay you (yay :))


    How does it work?
    You post here, stating the ingame names of your team members.
    You will then receive your own chest, where you can deposit iron ingots or iron blocks.
    If you have placed something inside of your chest, replace the torch with a redstone torch and put up a sign above the chest stating the amount of points you would like to receive for the ingots.
    1 -> we replace 25 iron ingots with a gold ingot and award you 1 point per iron ingot
    2 -> we replace 50 iron ingots with a gold ingot and award you 2 points per iron ingot
    3 -> we take out the iron ingots and award you 3 points per iron ingot

    You can use subway code "555" to get to our subway station.
    [IMG][IMG][IMG][IMG]
    1) Follow the red path, jump in (water block at the end of the path)
    2) you might end up in picture 2 -> stand on the wool block and press the button
    3) you should get to the lower level, turn right and walk through the only hole in the wall
    4) you have reached the chests

    If you put iron in:
    - replace the torch on the wall with a redstone torch
    - replace the empty sign with a sign containing the amount of points you would like to receive (1, 2 or 3)

    At the following dates, you will receive a 10% bonus to your points.

    December 23rd, 24:00

    HOLY SHIT, A REASON TO MINE!

    Er-, I mean, I am of course a "highly skilled" miner, so therefore I might cost a "little" more than the given price.
    ...
    Who the hell am I kidding.
    *Throws iron ingots at Marvin*
    WHERE'S MY PRIZE!?!?!

    But in all seriousness, I'll be doing this by myself, so I'll need a chest to put the iron in.

    Actual ingame name: JellyBelly41

    Edit: Where are the chests located anyway?

    The chests will be IN Aquatia, which is accessible through subway code "555"... Talk to Marvin or myself in game to show you WHERE they will be, and one of us will set it up ASAP :)

    We cannot controll who works together anyway... so no limit.

    Already late, I'll set up some chests tomorrow and post a description on how to get there.
    Like tbritts said, they will be located in our city, easily accessible via subway.

    - chests added
    - teams added to the chests
    - first post edited (info on how to get to the chests)

    Please check, if all of your team members can access your team chest.
    And feel free to pick a team name.

    I'll add a guide on how to use the subway later.

    Can you make the team chests like, 1 chest per member within the group section? Our team wants to keep track of who gets how much iron, so we know how to divide the money. What I mean is, can you keep track of how many points each person in a team is receiving, so the team knows if everyone is working hard. Also, say a team of 4 gets like, 100,000 points, and a single person gets 26,000. Would the team of 4's total be divided by four to create a fair track with the single person teams?

    Sure... I'll just give one chest to each of you.

    Mmh what would be the point of having a team then? 100k > 26k.
    As a team you will get more points, but you will also have to split the prize ;).
    An this is a multi player game after all ;)
