Potential clean-up in past contest areas, Update by Doctacosa

All contest areas are usually set around a given theme and have been designed to have a cohesive look amongst all buildings. New additions after the contests are usually welcomed, as long as they stick to the known theme and follow the same rules as the existing entries.

To help keep that unified, clean look, I'm adding an extra guideline today: at the staff's discretion, builds within former contest areas that don't belong are subject to be removed after two months of inactivity. This includes grossly incomplete works or ones that don't follow the guidelines. For example, our first contest in Oak Hills was themed around fancy houses. People are free to make new additions on the available lots at any time. However, cobble boxes have no place there, or a house with unfinished walls or roof, or a sandstone skyscraper.

The grace period starts today, so you still have the two months available should you wish to revisit or complete an older build. Thank you for your understanding!

Would it be possible to add the rules / build guidelines for each area to the contest pages? At the moment the only way is to trawl back through the news archive and try to find it.

That's on the drawing board! This news post is the first step in the process, as I wanted to give people a heads-up as early as possible.
