    Well, it's not a good sign if a player is posting this information on the forums instead of the company...

    I don't know what to do, boycott the event, or submit 100+ pictures to make a point.

    I say boycott it. It's clearly a Caly event. None of the pets are non-Calypsian. :mad:

    Seeing that many of us decided to boycott because it seems to be quite Caly biased... I came up with an idea

    Well, since we won't run it it, it doesn't mean we can't have fun... so I invite you all to do something else instead... and instead of lonely pictures as requested by contest rules... to show MA and Caly people what a real community looks like...

    So here's the idea:

    Gather on Sunday, April 19th, ~19:30 game time (think is a decent time for both EU, US and AU players), right after 5$'s event, and take a huge group photo with as many Arkadians (and their pets) as possible.

    If this won't work out... please don't shoot me... it was just an idea... thought that instead of just boycotting the contest or send 100 pictures as someone else suggested, it would be way cooler if we could all send same picture with 100 (well, obviously exaggerating here :p) arkadians and their pets having some fun and showing some community spirit. :)

    Even created a thread to discuss the idea (if anyone would be interested in it): http://arkadiaforum.com/threads/group-pictures-avatars-pets-and-murkalael.12141/

    That's rude. I'm a pet hater, the eat your ped card, and the lack of sense of some devs makes them mixed with mobs that have nothing to do, and on sweat circles there's always some retarded with their huge cows in the way. But I'll participate on contest with a joke, I was really thinking about it even befor Lovefall propose what she linked above.

    Surely, pets can be annoying as hell.

    But there is no need to ruin a contest for others just because you don't like it. THAT is rude and disrespectful.

    No contest would be ruined, anyone can still send their pictures and MA will pick their winners.

    The fact that we wanted to take a stance in a way or another for the fact that the contest seems to be Calypso based, is not ruining in any way the contest for any other participants.

    How would be any legit contender affected by the fact that some of us won't send any picture or that we would send the same picture that doesn't qualify according to contest rules?

    I would ruin contest if I wish to hack the receiver e-mail and hijack the pics, but I will only add some humor to it, so that's no rude when no harm done.

    Your suggestion would not ruin anything, but it supports the conspiracy theories above. It embellishes the others ideas and their behavior.

    And I fail to see how this is a Caly event. To me it seems like everyone is free to join, and if I am not mistaken space travel will not be disabled during the event.

    The part which I see as Caly based is the fact that all reward pets are Caly based pets... why not had one caly pet, one arkadia pet, one cyrene pet, one rocktropia pet? Even the promotional picture has only Caly based pets.

    So yeah, it is not restricted to Caly, but it just looks like is biased towards one planet's pets, just like the whole pets update was - Caly being the only planet getting rare pets.

    Uhm... Let's see. Caly is the only planet with rare pets. The pets awarded sells for 1,000 to 5,000 PED. All other pets sell for.... 1 PED?

    Time to make up your mind?! Does it ruin the contest or not?

    The way this contest has been presented with both image and rewards listing suggests bias towards Caly since there are no pets to be rewarded from other planets no matter their sales price.

    As I said in the second post, it embellishes the behavior above.

    And surely, no one would participate if the rewards came from other planets, since they have no value at all.

    Since the other planets don't have rare pets yet (why BTW), they could just give for example a level 50 regular pandi pet - guess the value would be equivalent.
