MyAW - Summer PTZ Giveaway - Week 7 (Theme: Humor)


Hey, everyone!  We have been partnering with MyAW to host a PTZ Giveaway on MyAW throughout the summer!  MyAW is a new social network that opened earlier this summer, and is exclusively for ActiveWorlds! PTZ are a currency that you can use within MyAW to redeem for prizes or trade with other users.

Every week, we'll ask our readers to share some of their favorite places that match a particular theme.  You'll need to post the following to our MyAW "AWBuilder" group (must be logged in to view):
  • Coordinates (i.e. AW 0n 0e. World & position at minimum)
  • A screenshot of the build at that location

At the end of the week (due by Fridays at midnight VRT, or in other words 00:00 am), we'll pick one of the screenshots at random to win a voucher for 100 PTZ! We'll share all locations submitted on the next week's blog, along with a public announcement of the winner.

Last Week's Entries: 

Last week we featured SnowI'm a big fan of Winter and snowy builds are a refreshing and often seasonal change of pace from the green pastures of the public building worlds.

Last Week's Entries: 

Last week we featured Caves.  Cave-themed builds in ActiveWorlds are a lot of fun to build and explore because there are some technical challenges to overcome to make them look believable, and seeing how different builders implement that via lighting, interactivity, and/or detailing is always really interesting and often unique to that builder.
