Last year's pumpkin decorating contest was a lot of fun for everyone, so we're bringing it back. Pretty straightforward: best pumpkin wins.

Rules:

• Your entry must be on an actual pumpkin (We will also accept: watermelon, squashes & gourds if you cannot get a hold of pumpkins).

• We will accept entries in the following mediums: carved; painted; dressed up in costume.

• No digital entries will be accepted - no photoshops, no digitally enhanced pumpkins, etc.

• Your photo must include a piece of paper with your username and date, or it will be disqualified

• All photos must be submitted to this thread.

• Submit as many as you'd like, but please make each submission a separate post.

For example: If you want to make multiple pumpkins, please photograph each pumpkin individually. Additionally, please submit each entry as an individual reply to the thread. Yes, this may take more time for you, but it's the easiest way to make sure points are distributed.

Prizes:

• 500 points for each pumpkin entered

• Winner takes all - 1 winner; 5,000 points, custom title, and 10 invites

End Date:

October 31, 2012 23:59 EST

Update: Please note, a fair amount of users pointed out (last year) that there were several participants in the contest taking advantage of the points. We would like to point out that anyone thought to be taking advantage, gaming and/or cheating in this contest (at staff's sole discretion) will have all of their entries disqualified and possibly be disqualified from future contests. As usual, anyone found to be explicitly cheating will be banned. This is for fun, and will not be the last contest that we hold, so enjoy it with your fellow users.
