    Have you considered doing some moria themed tbs? People could get in the moria groove, and it might generate some concepts:)

    Just and idea, but couldnt we have a sort of winner, or the "best" theme build goes on the Mcme times for a little while? It's a good way for advadventurers or players in general to get noticed for what they are good at :)

    Its in no way a goal to get as many people doing the ThemedBuild as possible; the ThemedBuild is mainly for people who actively want to work for their artist promotion. Also picking a best one is in my opinion counter-productive as many players first have to gain the required skills to be able to compete with the builders that are just about to get promoted, so if the new players always seem to "lose" the ThemedBuilds, that may rather demotivate them and maybe even make them give up on getting artist.
    Beside that it'd be again more work for a staff member to look through every build every week and pick a winner.

    That idea is represented in contests anyhow. They (mostly) require a great deal more of effort that some members don't wish to partake in, thus there is repressed representation; but it still stands as an effective means to display members of all ranks in their proficiency.
