To add a screenshot to your post you need to upload the screenshot to the web first. I suggest the free app, "Photobucket."

http://i907.photobucket.com/albums/ac272/dagrud/c9857bca.jpg

"Crop for Free" is another great app that let's you rotate your pic and crop them.

Just edit your pic how you want then upload to "Photobucket". Then select the pic and you will see a little i (for information) in the lower right of your screen. Click it and it will bring you to a screen that looks like this...

http://i907.photobucket.com/albums/ac272/dagrud/1f48dcfa.jpg

Click in the IMG box and it will copy the code that you need to insert in your post to display that pic. That's it!!! Post your message and it should include your screenshot in it.

It's a great place to bring my victims... eh, um ladies to. It lets out at either my Animal Experiment barn or my Human Experiment Bungaloo.

If you ever find yourself in my neighborhood, stop by for a bite. I promise it won't hurt much. :p

OKAYYY!!! FINALLY !!! Something GO TEAM LAVA!!! let the gems out!!;
however please fine tune the rules:::
this is an example:
Snap shots does not show who's farm it is in the picture...
contest does not state the farm need to be orginal!! "The Maze" entry... idea belongs and credit should go to LADANA! y? Because Blessing Star asked for permission to use her idea to creat a flower maze!!!
Blessing Star Farm has many who took snap shots of my farm.. with comment left they did... NOW whos to say they dont claim it for your 100 gem? .. why not allow us to registar our names so we can knock off the id thieft too while at this.
Big suggestions... split the 100 .. 50 to the farm owner with orginalality.. 50 to the person who made it entry....
Security for the young ID thieft for all fairness is a must

Security for the young ID thieft for all fairness is a must

I'm offended by your accusation that I "STOLE" the maze idea. I DID NOT "STEAL" my hedge maze idea from ANYONE let alone LADANA. I did a maze several weeks ago and even posted a pic in this forum (CLICK HERE (http://forums.teamlava.com/showthread.php?37-Show-Us-Your-Farm!!!/page4)). If LADANA did a hedge maze before me, who's to say she didn't get the idea from me? If she did, I WOULDN'T CARE!!!

The farm I posted here is 100% "ORIGINAL". If someone likes something I did here though and wishes to us it on their farm, I'd be happy not upset. Not like I "OWN" any ideas here. There is only soooo much one can do in this game. EVERYONE uses ideas they see on another's farm. I wasn't the first player to stack hay, but I liked the idea so YES I use it in my farms. That is how we get better and better farms. People build on ideas that they see others do then they take those ideas and expand on them. Did it ever occure to you the prehaps more then one player came up with the idea to create a Hedge Maze?

To top it off, it's not even like the most creative farm wins this contest. Read the rules again. The winner is whoever has the good fortune to post a pic of theirs or yes another's farm at the "Right" time. The way it's set up, someone could post a pic of an empty field and if they happen to have been the 6th entry on the week that Teamlava has decided ahead of time that the 6th entry will win then that empty field farm will win!

I do however have one change I'd like to see to their rules. They said that if they don't get enough entries to get a winner (ie. They decide the 10th entry will win yet only 8 enter) then the "LAST" entry will win. This will encourage people to wait to the last minute to enter this contest as it increases ones odds of winning. I'd rather they just randomly pick an entry from all that they do recieve. This way everyone has equal chance to win as it is more like a Lottery.

Here's my farm. I love all the other ideas out there, especially the hedge maze. What a great idea.

Here's my "Flower Walk" that lead to the park. All the flowers haven't bloomed yet, so it will look much better in a day or two

Here's the park. I think it looks best when all the cherry trees have the pink blossoms covering them.

I play a little different...

Over a period of weeks a story developed with the chickens taking over the Gnome's farm.
He received crates in the mail and began to build a solution. All was well until some cunning chickens surrounded the gnome and boxed him up.

It stands now with the chickens plotting their revenge :)

This is our Farm of the Week!

Thank you to everyone else who entered. Please submit your entries again this week once the post is up. We're going to do something different this week and have two winners so the points will be divided in to two sets of 50 Gems each.

I would like to judge one for creativity, but I don't have a method to judge for that yet since there are so many creative farms I saw in these posts that a creativity contest will be very hard to judge.

Thank You Norman and TeamLava!
Now all I have to do is figure out how to spend the 100 gems!
Although I am one of those that don't spend real $ on games (I don't really have the discretional budget to do so) I will attempt to save a few and purchase a few to support your efforts.
One think you should do is award the owner of the farm and not the submitter. It would be far to easy to just take multiple pictures of others farms and submit them and flood the contest. You should require that all entries carry the farm name an storm8 Id for verification. A sticky notice on all farms message board would go a long way to promoting the contest. I have been recommending to some of my neighbors that they should enter and some are not aware of the forum. Do not award on originality, that would just open debate over who had the idea first an generate a lot of bickering, maybe have different criteria each week, best flower arrangement, most farm like farm, best crop art, best animal farm, etc. Thank you again, of all the free games I have downloaded this is by far the best, I like that it is based on cooperation and not adversarial interaction.
