    That's perfectly fine and should work out considering we plan on having the next SYWTBAI season be far more relaxed and less ambitious than the last season in terms of casting.

    This week saw the begging of the final Imagineering competition on the boards for this years, Eisner's Game. In the first round every contestant is working together to build a first. Set in the year 2466 Imagineers are set to design a travelling spaceship that within contains a Disney theme park. Within the group PM the three judges will decide who was not pulling their weight, and those Imagineers will be sent back to the past in elimination. For the final twist there's the Ender Award which is decided on which Imagineer does the highest quality of work. If an Imagineer receives the award then they will be aloud passage into the third round. This project is due on the 8th of December.

    Usually we start nominations by this time so they can begin tallying before the holiday rush:bookworm: If you need any help I can see what I can do. I like the awards, I want to see them continue.

    The Creator Games : Project Revival

    [​IMG]

    It begun last week, and the return of fan favorite competition, The Creator Games, is back! For this first challenge we have an interesting challenge, both teams were challenged to design a new land for any Disney Park around the world, inspired by the themes of "never-built" imagineering concepts. Team Baby Groot gave us Glacier Bay, and Team Drax gave us Port Mysterious. Overall both projects have good merits, but only one can win. As the reviews from @tcool123 and @IDInstitute it became clear, due to the level of exquisite detail, Team Baby Groot were declared the winners. We saw the goodbye of two competitors @Michel Lichand as he dropped out, and @Stark who has been banned from the forums. As we leave Session 1, we enter the second session, Ain't No River Country Wide Enough. Both teams are required to design a complete revival of the abandoned River Country water park, along with a refurbishment of the Fort Wilderness resort/campground area. For Team Baby Groot, as an advantage for winning, this round they get to choose a Disney IP from the last 5 years that Team Drax must somehow work into their concept. They have 24 hours to pick one or the advantage is void. We'll now have to wait till next week to see what these two teams have up there sleeves.

    Redesigning Epcot

    [​IMG]

    On a new take of the typical overhaul of fan favorite parks @Michel Lichand takes on a new and unique perspective on this topic. He has created a sort of satire of the rumor mill, I'm sure we're all familiar with on these boards through threads created by the Spirit, Marni, and various other insiders. He takes into account the little things such as new paint schemes and signs, and a new name of EPCOT. We have various threads that have been created by users on the "WDW Forums", and they range in the secret changes going at Epcot. From the replacement of Universe of Energy with something that moves quickly, but not a thrill ride; it may be connected to the casting calls of Project Tomorrow. There will be multiple new pavilions in both Future World and World Showcase, and something new for all the current pavilions throughout the park. Here's an official list we have obtained from our sources, and may I say they were various gracious to provide these leaks to us.
    Energy = complete re-do
    Wonders of Life = complete re-do
    Mission Space = big update
    Test Track = small update
    The Seas = medium update
    The Land = big update (not Soarin')
    Imagination = complete re-do.
    Innoventions = complete re-do.
    Spaceship Earth = update.
    New Pavilion

    We here at the Newsroom are keeping a close watch to the updates coming to Epcot, and ensure you. We'll be the first to let you know.

We here at the Newsroom would like to send out our condolences to the family and friends of the user @unkadug . He will be missed greatly not only in our community, but throughout the forums in general. May @unkadug rest in peace.​

    Thank you space! The star actually took me a while. First to figure out what competitions happened this year, and then the harder thing to do to which was find a shape. Was going to be a lightbulb signaling ideas, but it was deformed so opted out of it. I think the star symbolizes how we're all stars in our own rights. :D
