    So, I dont know If I read that wrong or not, apperently according to the description the event goes till
    • End Date: November 21st, 2017 (Final Submission Date)
    So the thing is this
    • Autumn Weather [Sep, Oct, Nov]: Current - 11/29
    If Im not wrong, the event ends before you can take a screen shot of autumn, and according to this
    • Spring Weather [Mar, Apr, May]: 11/11 ~ 11/13
    the spring is already in Heidel, there is cherry blossom trees everywhere. Im kinda confused and hope you know why.

    Autumn Weather has been in effect for a short while already, and will be the default season in game, until we kick off the full winter effects later this year (as we get closer to December). This gives players from November 16th till the end of November 21st to take and submit Autumn themed screenshots.

    The November 29th end date was included to give folks an idea of when they can begin to expect the switch into the Winter theme this year, hopefully that alleviates any confusion or concerns.

    Well, its less likely to make screenshots if there is no event, so its kinda not right and not really fair tbh

    Also what I just realized, the document is kinda a nice change for uploading, but the problem is it does not accept the link from Imgur without editing it afterwards, since you have added a DOT in the "allowed" link, gonna write what you have in the sheet

    Please ensure the information you have submitted is a valid direct imgur link to your image. (ex: https://i.imgur.com/abcdef.png)

    It dies not include the normal Imgur, it either is a not known mistake or its on purpose and we dont know about the "other" Imgur

    Are we allowed to edit the screenshots in any program, such as photoshop?

    I've gone ahead and adjusted the post to hopefully clear up some confusion, Autumn Weather should now read 11/16 - 11/21 (Effects Will Remain Until: 11/29). I'd also like to confirm that Summer Weather is indeed in-game, but we encourage players to use their best judgement when taking screenshots in the theme of their choice.

    As an example, it's perfectly ok to submit a summer image that was taken on 11/18 if you happen to find an area of the game that you believe is suitably "Summer'ish". In addition to this, if you happen to take a picture later on you may edit your submissions all the way up till the deadline of 11/21.

    To fall in line with our other screenshot contests, digital editing of photos is not permitted.


    Update: For any folks who may have had issues submitting a link, we have identified the variable that was preventing a specific link type from being submitted. Please refresh the form and try submitting.

    So we can technically submit to any category, at any point in time, just that you want us to make sure what we submit is in the theme of that season?

    The pictures I took today actually look pretty autum-y rather then springish.

    Ok, question: Do we have to submit screenshots taken during this event or will you allow any screenshots from our backlog? Like autumn ones taken during Halloween and summer ones in water park?

    Correct!

    While it'd certainly encouraged they be from during the event, you may of course include your own screenshots so long as they fit the contest rules and criteria.
