    I think the major issue is that campaigns are multiple maps, and maps take a ton of time. Fitting everything in to the same time frame allotted to creating one model or one skin is pretty hard to deal with, especially for those who don't even see the contest posted until it is well under way.

    From participating in various areas in the Arena one thing I've always wanted to do is just have one really long contest to allow more casual participants to join, I remember one contest I did a fan comic for another site gave 3 months from start to finish.

    Also, with the Advertisement thingies not working anymore now that Pyrite has retired and no one capable of dealing with them seems interested in continuing them I'd recommend PMing anyone you think might be interested in joining the contest when it gets started. (I PMed everyone who placed an entry in any of the last ~6 texturing contests to join the current one and that thread got a burst of activity). As this is only the 2nd iteration of this specific contest type I'd recommend checking the map section for people who have done campaigns or maybe mini-mapping contests to see if you can find more interested participants that way, if you're interested in getting more people to join in the fun ;)

    That's really nice of you, 67chrome, to get people join via PMs, but to tell you my bitter truth, I don't have much of time for that nor do I know who submits campaigns in the Maps Section, who is active or who would likely be up to it.

    The notifications is indeed a pain right now; Rui showed some interest, which I will take advantage of :)

    yey extension! XD

    though really, if only the Notices section is working nicely, this would have been more lively. and looking for terrain, trigger, story-board, etc. partners would be a lot easier.

    The problem is that people are wanting to do 20 chapters, while 3 would be more than enough. And the deadline is way too short, not even 2 months, it should be at least 3 months. Making a campaign isn't like doing a single model, yet they have the same deadline.

    hmm. so then there's supposed to be something like "minimum of 2 playable maps and maximum of X playable maps" to make the contest not last that long?

    6 years is a bit above the time limit for this contest even with the extension. I think vengeance was just joking.

    Ok, I'm in. Gonna try and make something, I already have some ideas so I'll probably start tonight. Seeing as this will be extended I should have enough time to finish.

    EDIT:
    View attachment Thersidas.w3n
    i still wonder how long the extension is gonna be. well anyway, here's the almost finished campaign i got. the only missing part is going to be the ending cinematic. if the the extension will be sufficient, i'll be adding another map just to tie in with the ending cinematic. if not, i'll be posting later the final work. all i need to do now is check if there are any more bugs, maybe a little tweaking with the exp and drops, and maybe add a little more doodads to some maps.

    Pharaoh said that this will be extended "a bit" (i PMed too and he answered), since there was not a single completed campaign entry yet. i'm still waiting for how much this extension is gonna be.

    i'm quite anxious too XD
    'cause tomorrow is like the supposedly end of this contest. i think anyone here would be happy to know if they will get even a couple of week's worth of time finishing their entry.
