    Since the last terraining contest Nº 19 was in 2018 (mapping time, results were on in 2019),

    so the contest 20 that can be in 2019, also number 20 is like a nice number like round and lot of trayectory (it can not be 19 with no 20).

    I decided to create a poll to check a posible theme for a future of the next terraining contest.
    Just to know what the terrainers or the general people wish to see/work.

    I decided to check the theme of all previus terraining contest and create a poll with the option of chose a previus theme and focus on list new themes

    as example:

    - Ice
    - Fire
    - A theme of previus contest (1-19, like castles or aftermath).

    -You can vote the top 7 themes you would like to try to do,
    -you can change your vote anytime.
    -Poll has no time limit.
    -any user can vote.

    -You can state here themes you want and I can add them to the poll (if is an old theme like castles or cathedrals, it goes as a previus theme category).
    (edit: I can´t touch the poll any further, add a category is not imposible but it will require burocracy, if it can not be added, there is the second option "none of the themes listed in the poll" if none of the options is to like to be done)


    This won´t determine the theme of the next contest but maybe it will help us to everybody know/ discuss what could be done.

    Old terraining contest theme. (if you wish to repeat a category you can check here and post wich one would you like)

    IMO I would like a theme not done in the 1-19 contest but if someone does is also great.
    So I focused to do a list including previus themes and I sugest new posible themes to be done.
    So well here you can discuss themes, any sugestion or constructive feedback is most welcome.

    (note: once I add a category I can´t remove it, I accidentaly pressed enter before finishing so this was posted before even finish writing categories, I added categories and put WOW- WC3 regions but that would be the theme of the 1st contest, on the other hand wow has new areas now since 2008, WOW expansions, well worst case is repeated, and on the other hand WOW- WC3 maybe deserves their own category).

    Hi!

    Thread title corrected.

    You can now select all themes. Just be sure to choose wisely between these themes. @Ragnaros17 do not touch the poll further.

    Thank you for making the thread :]

    My original intention was to do it very wisely but fault of my clumsy when I was writting instead of hit the backspace also hit enter(small key board of a small pc) so it was posted un-finished and then editing.

    glad to hear.!!

    also glad to see those numbers rolling.

    funny thing, terraining contest 20 and by luck there are 20 options.

    Hi folks.

    I have been preoccupied with real life lately. I will try to host it soon and perhaps nudge @Keiji @fladdermasken @lord_Turin and whomever might be interested in participating.

    Thank you :]

    I saw @Chaosy interested in some terraining, in the melee contest

    I am not a pro terrainer but I can come with an entry at least to fill ranks.

    Also water structures is like a very interesting thing to try !!

    yes, since the melee mapping contest ended, there is a void of mapping contest, and it would be ideal to have the 20 terraining contest before the launch of reforged.

    I will try to pull the strings of this one.
