First of all i would like to thank newbcaKe for this extraordinary  announcement psoter that he made for us.

In fact i really enjoyed the comic screen shot session itself 😉 nice meeting you newbcaKe

The Wild Boar!

What if we really send him a noobpack instead of his desired Ancient God Weapon?

So the season 1 of the WYDIAN’s journal comes to an end. So let me share my warmest appreciation to the WYDIAN turned blogger in this event. So the first season is finished so what’s next? Well guys and dolls the blogging will never ends because there will be a season 2! Yes you heard it write we will have a season 2 this September so you will still have a time to be an exceptional blogger and have a chance to win some Ancient weapon in case you didn’t won on the first season.

Cooldude21 and Me

Cooldude21 and Me (Congratulating the monthly winners in-game)

Since this will be the Second Season it only means that the contest proper will be reformatted. In the first season used to select daily winners and the process of selecting winners goes like this.
Season 1

You Submit a Blog Update  We Read it  If we like it  3 or 5 Laks

You Submit a Blog Update  We Read it  we don’t like it  Disqualified.

It’s easy to win if we knew that you put your effort in creating your blog then you win. If you copied it from somewhere then better luck next day.

We didn’t limit the number of winning entries on the past season but in season 2 it will be changed and the selection of winners will be like limited. The daily winners will be segregated into two groups. The “Winning Blog Entries and the “Outstanding Blog Entries”, the winning blog entries are the same like those who receive “3 Lakto Powders last season” but in this season instead of receiving 3 Lakto powders they will be receiving 5 Oriharukon powders and 5 Laktorerium powders and the winner will be limited to 5 people. So let’s head to the “Outstanding Blog Entries” group these groups are like those “Best Blog Entry of the day” or simple the outstanding group of the last season and of course the winners will win 10 Laktorerium powders and at the same time the number of winners will be limited to 5.

The reason for limiting the winners is to avoid those dummy and copy pasted entries that we are receiving everyday and since the prize becomes bigger it is necessary that you adjust your “Effort-ting System” in creating a wonderful blog.

And remember the Top blogger of the week last season? That can be determine by counting the number of days you become an “Outstanding Blog”. The top bloggers of the week will receive an additional 5 Laktorerium powder. So it is possible to receive 15 laktorerium powders every tuesday or end of the WYD week (*cough* maintenance).

Aside from the daily winners we will also be having the “Weekly Winner” Yes without “S” so only 1 blogger can win that prize which is to be announced when the official event poster is finished.
Running out of an idea on what to blog? We have a solution for that! Every week we will be suggesting an “extraordinary topic” to be blogged. The best blogger who blogs about that topic in his creative way will be the “Weekly Winner”

The Monthly winners will be… oops I think I already squeal too much.

Anyway the second season will start on September 2. So good luck and unleash the fantastic blogger within you!

Reflecting about WYDIAN’s JOURNAL
August 12, 2008, 8:45 am
Filed under: Off the Scale | Tags: , , , ,

It’s been a while since we started the WYDIANS JOURNAL Contest. A contest that allows players to win 3 Laktorerium powders easily. Just submit a blog update and you will win. I noticed some players are really serious about this putting their hearts into their blog entry while some are just making updates just for the sake of the powders.

Well we can’t blame that since all of them are eye-ing for the top prize and the consolation prize is easy to acquire. Anyway let’s get to the point i noticed that the GM’s “Magical Q and A Vault” are being filled up by some queries related to this contest.

CM’s i submitted an entry to WYD journal but i didn’t win?

These are the common answers regarding that question. so every time you have the urge yto ask that question to the Q and A always remember this:

1.) It’s either you copied your blog entry from an existing WYD related site or blog.

Yes some players are really doing this “Evil” thing. Well i can’t play lets “pin point the names” here but if you’re doing this please stop performing this kind of activity.  I wont let you win no matter what. There are even some tendencies that they even copied the profile and the nickname from their source.

e.g. JOURNAL-MODERATOR turned into JOURNAL-PRODUCER.

Please keep in mind that we the CM’s and as well as some Game Masters are actually reading your blogs. We do not prefer reading stuffs that we’ve already read from another blog.

2.)  You are using a SUB-ACCOUNT and act as if youre a new participant.

There is no such thing as a “Multi-Client/Participant” in this contest.  So guys if youre that desperate to have those powders try to make some articles that deserves 5 laks rather than making another blog and submitting it on the contest.


The picture above shows a participant who uses  sub-accounts with newly created blogs to join. Notice the IP address and the Time?.  Its just one of our “Tricks” to detect those abusers.

Well if we saw someone that refers to this kind of “Participant” in the Q and A  my initial reaction will be.


You know yourself” (and your dummy accounts ). “We also know who you are” So my advised is to stop using this method because youre just wasting your precious time.

3.)  WordPress System Fault!

Yes its their fault not ours. Sometimes your comment will not appear in the “Awating Moderations Section” or even in the “Akismet Spam” section.

So atleast submit your comment twice just to make sure that it is accepted by the system. We wont appreciate if you submit youre comments 10x.

I won but i didnt received my prize?

Please refer to the answers above. If we cant answer that then it means you didnt tell us your “CHARACTER NAME“. Please remember that failure to do that means disqualification.

Lets talk about Conspiracies, Favoritism, Awards and Stuffs.

As you noticed some bloggers are winning 5 laks instead of 3 from the time being. The reason for that is because we are really entertained, moved and amazed by their articles. There are no conspiracies or favoritism involved its just that those bloggers really put their 100% in their article and they deserve the additional rewards.

Thats all hope you learn something from the head CM ^_^
