    It's kinda hard to decorate a vampire or (Western) Nord themed house with the abysmal drop rate of the new furniture plans.
    OH wait, I can buy them from the Crown Store, can't I?

    Is inclusion of player characters in the screenshot allowed/encouraged/discouraged? <3

    I hope its allowed, or else I need to retake my screenshot :disappointed:

    I did a whole vampire theme and used my vampire character in the screenshot!

    Good question. Also, is it even possible to retake and resubmit a screenshot?

    I think you misunderstand Gilvoth. "Once your Submission is received, you will receive an entry (each an “Entry” or collectively, the “Entries”) into the Contest." - this means you will be entered. It has nothing to do with you getting a confirmation (which they are not doing.) The SELECTED entrants (winners) will be notified. Not all entrants. I am a lawyer and this is my read on this, if it helps.

    nah, it's not a photoshop touch up after capturing the image. Think of TESV: Skyrim ReShades, but for ESO. A reshade is a preset download that makes your game look better, prettier, more picturesque, and vibrant just by tweaking the lighting and colors of the game. It allows for better screenshots in the game. I have been playing ESO with a ReShade for a long time cause I love taking pictures in this game, so it feels odd to remove it.

    Just wanted to get confirmation if it is allowed for this contest. It's not part of the traditional Minion addons or Essential Housing Tools and it doesn't add any special effects or animations to your house. All it does is, it makes your colors and lighting a bit more vibrant.

    Please let me know if this is allowed @ZOS_GinaBruno @ZOS_JessicaFolsom @ZOS_SarahHecker . Thanks

    I have a question about the personal identifying information that would be published on the website.

    It states the Sponsor may post the name and hometown of people entering the contest. Is this only for the winners? Does it necessarily have to be the real name of the individual or can it be the in-game ID tag? Is email address published too?

    That is a lot of personally identifying information that would then be widely available for the public, and any stranger could take advantage of that. I can understand that the company would need it privately so they could dispense and/or mail the rewards, but I just want clarification of it being made publicly because that makes me a little nervous. I had a friend who was stalked before...

    Much snippage, I admit, but I wanted to take the above comment and note that I often do "participate" in the sense that I get inspired to make or redecorate a house/apt because of a contest, but too many times I just completely space the actual entering part.

    The playing around, and the inspiration from the "contest" are the fun parts to me...I don't even have to enter to win.
    Tenesi Faryon of Telvanni - Dunmer Sorceress who deliberately sought sacrifice into Cold Harbor to rescue her beloved.
    Hisa Ni Caemaire - Altmer Sorceress, member of the Order Draconis and Adept of the House of Dibella.
    Broken Branch Toothmaul - goblin (for my goblin characters, I use either orsimer or bosmer templates) Templar, member of the Order Draconis and persistently unskilled pickpocket
    Mol gro Durga - Orsimer Socerer/Battlemage who died the first time when the Nibenay Valley chapterhouse of the Order Draconis was destroyed, then went back to Cold Harbor to rescue his second/partner who was still captive. He overestimated his resistance to the hopelessness of Oblivion, about to give up, and looked up to see the golden glow of atherius surrounding a beautiful young woman who extended her hand to him and said "I can help you". He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm. He also irritated the Prophet who had intended the portal for only Mol and Lyris.
    ***
    Order Draconis - well c'mon there has to be some explanation for all those dragon tattoos.
    House of Dibella - If you have ever seen or read "Memoirs of a Geisha" that's just the beginning...
    Nibenay Valley Chapterhouse - Where now stands only desolate ground and a dolmen there once was a thriving community supporting one of the major chapterhouses of the Order Draconis

    Wait for this contest to turn into something dictated by bunches of players standing around wearing vampire or nord costumes, surrounded by some of the most lazily done housing designs possible. This is why I never enter these contests, they always turn into something they're not supposed to be, and I rage every time. Lemme give you an example...
    [...]
    99% of the winners used the eso+ option to dye crown store outfits
    I also sincerely hope this 'housing' contest won't turn into a 'pose with your friends in vampire outfits' contest, and that the submissions will focus on the housing aspect of it only. I'm also very salty about how the 'Daedric Dress-Up' contest turned into the Daedric Background contest.

    But just for fact's sake, the winners did use Outfits, not costumes. The Sheo one you mentioned was using Abah's Watch I think, and the Meridia one was using an Ebonshadow outfit style, not the Nocturnal costume. But yeah, agreed on the fact that a very bland Outfit won simply by standing in front of some feathered background they made with housing lol.

    This question has not been answered yet and has been asked a few times now. Are we able to resubmit our screenshot if we have a better one to submit? I was under the impression our houses would be toured so I took a wide screenshot that does not show off finer details I think would be better suited for my entry. I know others have the same problem. Can we resubmit our screenshots?
