    Guidelines
    By participating in a ThemedBuild you agree to abide by the following guidelines.

    Lots:
    • You can find the lots at the freebuild server, at /warp theme.
    • Claim a free lot by typing /theme.
    • People who have reserved a lot but not built in it in the first 2 hours may have their claim removed by staff members, and staff members only.
    • Any lots that do not follow the guidelines will be removed without warning.
    • Staff will not help you with terraforming, copy-pasting, flipping or moving your ThemedBuilds. They can however move your ThemedBuild to a different world when the time has run out.
    Applications:
    • You'll need screenshots of at least one themed build as part of an Artist application.
    • All builds submitted in your application must be entirely your own work, and must have been completed during the allotted time.
    • Screenshots should be taken using the resourcepack defined at the top of this post.
    • Take at least one screenshot of your build with your lot-sign clearly visible.

    The seventh gate is really dumb in lore.
    Also why are we building Gondolin in the LORD OF THE RINGS

    Do you know what the theme builds mean?
    They are to show your skill set in order to become artist. These builds have nothing to do with the main server nor is any theme build used for the main. So it doesn't really matter what the theme build topic is.

    Will_em, thank you for clearing that up. Is there a place for a new person (almost decent builder) to practice and learn new skills or is that something I need to do elsewhere?

    You can practice and learn new skills with themed builds, but if you want to build more freely, go to the lore-appropriate or off-topic world (/warp spawn). But be sure you read the rules for freebuild http://www.mcmiddleearth.com/help/terms.
