Does this mean.... cheese diary soon?
If it says that the authentication servers are down, please check this page here to see when its up again: Minecraft Status Is Minecraft Down?Hi everyone. If you read my profile page a few seconds before I posted this you know I can't get on minecraft because my computer won't let me! So I will disclaim my plot.
@Finrod_Amandil @Despot666 shouldn't this have ended by now? cuz its way past Wednesday July 29th 24:00 BST. (would like to know who the finalists/winner are/is)Stage 3 (final layout and sizes) has been completed by Despot mostly through digging out all the halls of Moria. Note that the shapes there are in no way final and may well still be subdivided into smaller rooms and structures.

~~~~~~ Stage 4: CONSTRUCTION ~~~~~~
Now we finally enter Stage 4, where everyone is at last able to build on Moria and where we will at last start making massive progress on the actual map beyond the style trials that have been made so far.
And we start this with right away 2 Contests! They will be running parallel but the time should be enough to give both of them a try!
Contest 1:The pillars in Morias biggest hall serve of course a very important purpose and are aswell located at a very iconic spot: Right at the bridge of Khazad-dûm. Their description is very specific in the books, and be aware of that this description is different than the depiction in movies and old moria:
2nd hall pillar
As we will have so many normal pillars throughout Moria we really want a lore-accurate tree-shaped one in the 2nd hall!
Additionally, we ask you not to ruin the pillars or add orcish structures to it.
The plot you get includes both bottom and ceiling of the 2nd hall.

Contest 2:No specific lore is given on the design of the walls in the 2nd hall, so here you can go crazy with the design. The plots given include 2 wall segments including the division elements between them (marked with red wool). Shape and size of these parting points can be varied in shape and size, but they should have an uneven size centered around the wool marking. One wall element is a normal one and the other one has an exit to build around. The size and shape of the exit can be altered, but should roughly stay the same size.
2nd hall wall design
Do not make a replica of the moria west gate onto these walls. If there's one place on Arde where you don't find elvish symbols like the star of Feanor or the two trees of Valinor, then its in the 2nd hall, the heart of the biggest dwarven realm. However symbols as Durins Crown with the 7 stars or the anvil + hammer are symbols that are surely appropriate.

I noticed two leftover holes in matt's plot, so I marked them with blue wool, so you or him can fix it, because I wasn't sure how exactly it was shaped .After a major derp on my part, most of the pillars have lots of holes in them. Me and @ooitsbirdo have fixed up the finalists pillars. If anyone wants theirs fixed up for any reason! Drop a comment in this thread!!!!!! And i will fix up your pillar asap, for screenshots/applications or anything really. Again, I will fix it for you!!!! Very sorry for the inconvieniance and accidental grieving of the hard work you put in.
ill go and fix it , and please can we nomminate @kisos for biggest fail of 2k15I noticed two leftover holes in matt's plot, so I marked them with blue wool, so you or him can fix it, because I wasn't sure how exactly it was shaped .
EDIT : It's at the very top of the pillars.
