About
As the time from the relaxing and playful summer comes to a close, the season of fall arises upon us. The once sweet and laid back times are no longer present and a new eerie and spooky atmosphere has dawned. You better watch your back, no one is safe in Stickpage's Haunted Mansion.
With Halloween coming up in just about a month, Stickpage will be hosting the Haunted Mansion (2014) competition. The mansion will consist of a wide variety of objects all deemed to be haunted by you. Your job will be to choose any object that exists in this vast universe and convince us that your object is haunted in exactly 20 seconds.

How to Enter
To enter this competition, you must decide an object that you will animate for this competition. After pondering and making a decision, post your idea right in this thread. That's all there is to it!

Entry Requirements
• 640 x 360 @ 24 fps
• Must be 20 seconds in length, no more, no less
• Must label all symbols (including tweens) in this format: symbol_username
o Examples: tween1_stone, blur7_stone
• Must create a thread under the "Community Projects" section of the forum, you must update the thread regularly posting screen shots of your progress
• Must contain a "stickpage.com" link in the top right hand corner linking the viewer to the Stickpage homepage
• Must NOT present any cursing, profanity, or crude language
• Hell, damn, dang, darn, etc are acceptable
o anything outside of these terms must be presented with symbols (#$%^&*)
• Must not be released to the general public until the full animation is released on Stickpage, even if you have finished your entry before the deadline
• Must NOT contain any form of plagiarism, meaning no rotoscoping from any other works
• You may add SFX

Submission
Once you have completed your entry, simply send a PM to stone with a link to both the FLA and SWF.

How Entries Will Be Judged

Creativity - / 10
Spookyness - / 10

Extra Notes
• No two competitors are allowed to choose the same item, everyone should have their own unique item so think hard as to what you want to animate
• You are not allowed to change items at anytime, if you chose to animate a pencil for this competition, your entry must be centered around a haunted pencil
• It is unfair for other competitors for you to take a combination and fail to animate a presentable product

• If you participated in the Classic Crossover Competition and claimed two animations but failed to present a final product, you are ineligible to participate in this competition
• It is unfair for other competitors for you to take a combination and fail to animate a presentable product

wait, what?
(Classic Crossover)


Now, there isn't a penalty on this one for signing up just to give everyone a little extra leverage since I realize many of you didn't think the rules would be enforced or you would think you would even care for the future. I know this seems like I just hate you all, but it is truly just tough love!

I dont understand, what happend?

I think it's allowed since stone didn't say a thing about it instead of forbidding you from using it.

It all depends on how you make it, if its the size by your hand then its more likely a drawing. But if its a lot bigger than that then its a painting, as artists need big space to effectively paint on.

You will want to wait for Stone to answer that but I assume that you can't due to Herobrine is computer data and not a solid object. But if you had a haunted computer then you could have herobrine come from it.

FL-Nordin
10-06-2014, 07:32 AM
chances are low that competitions/events like this use pivot unless the host only wants video files to work with, but when they ask for fla. swf. then there is almost no to slight chance that they will make a exeption for pivot,
but i have a solution for you, oke ready?
- create pivot animation
- convert to video file
- open flash
- import video file in flash
- give fla. and swf to stone
flawless right?

I got a question. I wanted to do a mirror but i see that HyMaster has already chosen mirrors, however he's used the plural of "mirror's", and seeing his screenshot implies he's using more than 1 mirror. I'm querying if i could still use a small mirror as my object as it's in a way a bit differential to HyMaster.

If not then, I choose a reflective tray, but preferably i want the small mirror.

Cuz if each one is 20 seconds, and we're supposed to give both the Fla and swf, AND label our symbols with our name on it, then it's probably gonna end up as a collab.

I'm not sure but when I passed my file(w/ music) to stone, I asked him if putting music is ok but he didn't reply. I think you should just put music at you file and wait until stone makes a statement about this.
What I think though is it's ok because when I watched the previous haunted mansion some had music in it. But this is a different HM so I'm not pretty sure about that.

It would have been better if you just wrote "I don't know, Stone didn't tell me", since with what you wrote you just promptly provoked people to know more than before
Of all the possible combination of words ever existing, you chose one of the worst ones that, instead of solving a problem, makes it way bigger than before -.- (and I'm gonna already say that what I wrote doesn't help one bit to the discussion (but, you know, I want myself to be heard once in a while))

It would have been better if you just wrote "I don't know, Stone didn't tell me", since with what you wrote you just promptly provoked people to know more than before
Of all the possible combination of words ever existing, you chose one of the worst ones that, instead of solving a problem, makes it way bigger than before -.- (and I'm gonna already say that what I wrote doesn't help one bit to the discussion (but, you know, I want myself to be heard once in a while))
I'm just saying for you guys to know. It's better than not knowing anything. Releasing results for this and the reason behind it are totally different, at least you are updated.
Plus, it's better for the staff to officially announce their final decision and the reason to it, instead of me making a big fuss over it.

With what I said, at least you could already stop hoping for results. If an official announcement came after that there indeed would be results, then good.
But If I didn't say anything, and they announced that there won't be results. You would just get frustrated as you are now, thus you won't be waiting longer now.

And yes, I'm also frustrated that there won't results. I've had to wait like 3 months to get my friend's prize money on Classic Crossover. Him being in the Beginner Category, along with Alphaseagull. They both didn't get their prize money until after a long time. Which they should have gotten first since they were on beginner, and their anims weren't featured in the front page.

I agree with that, a staff member should be the one to announce that. I really wonder what going on over there because this and the DDC3 (over a year now since that ended) is really disappointing.

I'm happy you told us. Personally I am heavily discouraged from joining any further competitions on Stickpage. It should not have taken 5 months for a staff member to release such information. I had pm'd stone and CJ on numerous accounts, and did not receive any reply. I would have taken this knock lightly if at least one of them had told us months ago that the results would not be released, then I wouldn't have had 5 months of false hope. I don't even know if I will even release solo projects to them either. It's very frustrating.

The conditions of this competition were that they take your animations, put them up on the front page and you guts make money. Now if I'm not mistaken, they've taken your animations and blatantly disregarded the conditions of their own competition. Basically stole your work and are making money off of it while you see no benefit. I'm not entirely sure what to think about "the staff" here at this point.

Literally stole the words from xtreme yes, but honestly, this isn't something that should just be glossed over like this. I didn't even participate and the fact that you guys aren't going to get any money at all from this actually pisses me off. That's like signing a contract to work saying you'll make minimum wage for your services over a month, then after the month they just let you go and say "tough luck, thanks for the work you did though, it really helps us out"
That's some bullshit

now that DDC3 even got a mention from kursura, i feel that i can say this here as well, since all the BSE threads are locked. and i never got a message back from stone.
i really dont like to annoy people with stuff like this because i dont want to come over as greed or anything, but
the winners of BSE V5 have put over 1 years worth of effort to make cool entries, and it was stated in the front page of the first round that there will be given an award of some sort to the overall winners.
were the entries not cool enough?

If you guys aren't gonna keep your promises, then don't make them. Seriously, there are people on this site that work on anims to make some extra money for personal needs or something and if they spent all that time on things they wouldn't get payed for, then you just basically stole their time and money. I have no right to be angry cause I didn't join this, but just like what Drone said, the fact that the participants didn't get their money pissed me off.

I probably wouldn't complain if they released an update like: "Sorry guys, the prizes will be delayed.", or "Sorry guys, no prizes because of the following reasons:......" or something. But from what I read, there's nothing, no updates.

This will discourage everyone, especially the new guys to actually animate or join any competitions, which would probably be more of a loss than a benefit for not giving people their money.

Oh I assumed it was Stones money. If it was, then I could sympathize with problems he has, but with CrazyJay lol it comes off kinda badly. You guys are saying theres 3 events with prizes that havent been delivered? :O daaang

Stone isn't the person who decides whats done with the money. I have full faith and confidence in stone's judgement, but at the end of the day he's just an employee, he doesn't get to make those decisions, and he's too busy slaving away at games to keep CJ happy to even be a part of the ccommunity like he deserves to, which is honestly a complete shame

Stone is doing everything he can, believe me. He doesn't have the control on the front page and more importantly, the money that is being given.
All the prize monies are given by CJ, all Stone can do is to tell or remind CJ to give them.

Also joining a competition for money you need is unreliable, since you won't know for sure if you'll win or how much you'll get.

I feel like the people who have their anims on StickPage need to get in contact with Stone (so he can get in touch with CJ) or with CJ himself and have them removed.

If money wasn't involved it wouldn't necessarily be a problem, but this is an issue now since there is. I believe this is actually suable.
They can either remove it as Arch said, or give out the prize money, there was no set date for them to give out the results so that's fair, but if they don't at all, then it's going to come down to legal circumstances unfortunately.

Yes, because if you gave your work to him under the impression you were going to be paid for it then you do have a case here. If you were just going to give it to him out of the kindness of your heart to help you out then that is different.
Fuck it, I'll pm CJ for you guys because that's how fucked up this is.

I remember this issue coming up before. It is awkward that the one in charge and the one informing us are 2 different people.

I really feel bad for you bse 5 winners as you were way more deserving of a reward for your efforts compared to me last time. I don't know what to advise though, seeing as they never said how much. Reminds me of the posters they failed to ever send.

It's nice to see everyone's drawing attention to these issues as we've been patiently waiting long enough. Just hope everything gets resolved ok. I hate to loss faith in these events but it's getting harder and harder not too.

I still would've liked it if Stone wrote it in this thread officially. This problem has actually been around for years, just on a smaller scale. Seems to be going out of control now. Issues like this is what caused Stickpage to lose a lot of valuable animators. Maybe part of the reason CJ brought Stone in to the team was to bring back some of these animators, but it won't fix the problem if the initial problems which caused them to leave are still there.

Front page animations always get released late, money gets released even later. Though I can understand the need to leave an animation up on front page in order to generate revenue first, but there's only so much an animator can take when it comes down to how long they have to wait to reap the rewards of their hard work.

You are right, however if you have a hunch that you could possibly win something based on the competition, it may psychologically pump you up to think "yeah I'm gonna win something at least". That could play in your mind over and over again, even if you don't want to think about it, and the more you try to stop thinking about it the more you do think about it lol.

Guys, things have been a bit disorganized on our part since I was brought on to work on SP and we've been sort of working through a few things before I can actually do anything with the site. All of us here have been insanely busy making ends meet and especially with Stone having his child and needing to focus on that as well. This isn't an excuse for the disorganization or the tardy responses, I just hope you can recognize we don't just sit around all day doing nothing. It's still a problem that things have gotten to this point and for that I am extremely sorry. The only thing I can say for sure is that we're trying to do better and that good things are coming in order to resolve these issues you have. I have gotten involved in the existing outstanding projects and will be helping Stone compile DDC3. I have a much better machine and can handle the huge collab. I can also confirm that another judge has been brought on to finish this competition off. Again we shouldn't have let it drag on like this, but we'll get there soon, and down the line it wont even be an issue since we'll switch to a different system entirely.
