And The Winner Is …..

Posted on October 23, 2008. Filed under: building, Contests | Tags: , |

So about 2 weeks ago we started a contest here at the Kanevian Blog – The idea was simple, leave a comment anywhere on the blog and/or do a few more things to get some entries into the contest.

For each entry I created a line in an excel spreadsheet with the username, email address, and IP adress of the contestant (to help keep out cheaters).  Each line had a number assigned to it and in total there were only 33 entries – not a huge number, but that makes it easier for everyone to have a chance at winning.  Some people even increased their chances of winning by hanging a Kanevian Blog banner at their club, leaving at least one comment, and re-blasting the contest for a total of 6 entries – 6 out of 33 really helped to increase your odds of winning.

To choose a winner, I used the Truly Random Number Generator to pick a number between 1 and 33.  The number that came up was matched to the numbers assigned in excel.  The winner is someone who used all avenues to enter the contest, resulting in 6 total entries (I told you that would help increase the odds of being a winner).

Now without further babbling (and lack of a drum roll)…. The Winner Is…….


Congratulations to FlowerChild and a big thank you to all that entered.

FlowerChild, I will be emailing you at the address you provided – you will have until Monday Oct. 27th 2008 to respond so that we can coordinate the transfer of your prizes.

To everyone else, if I do not receive a response by Monday then I will re-draw for a new winner again on Tuesday Oct. 28th – so keep checking the blog (and your email) just in case.

Thanks again to all who participated – I plan on having more contests in the future so I look forward to your suggestions for contest ideas!

The Importance of Fame

Posted on October 8, 2008. Filed under: building, Fame | Tags: , , , |

Many people have their own reason for why their fame level is important to them.  Some will tell you it’s because they want to appear on the Kaneva Leaderboard, some may like all the activities that go into creating fame, and some are like me – they enjoy the rewards every time a new fame level is reached.

Since I’ve been “remodeling” my Kspace, I’ve really needed the rewards (I’m too cheap to buy credits).  I could care less about the titles, popularity, or anything like that.  Although, being on the leaderboard might increase the amount of traffic to this site, which would be nice [HINT – Link to this page from your profile =) ].

Here are all of the current ways to earn fame (look at this forum post for the latest ways to earn fame):

Fame Packets you can earn only once:

  • Invite a Friend: 10 join Kaneva
  • Invite a Friend: 25 join Kaneva

  • Add 5 friends in Kaneva (different than the Invite a Friend program), adding 1 new friend will trigger 4 of your current friends to “count” to the total
  • Create a hangout or use a deed

Repeatable Fame Packets— These can be done as many times as a day as you want.

Extreme Home Makeover – Kaneva Edition

Posted on September 29, 2008. Filed under: building, design, Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

Well… kind of.  In the ABC television series “Extreme Home Makeover”, one family who’s been hit hard by bad luck and circumstance is given a completely remodeled home.  In almost all cases the home is torn down and rebuilt.  In this edition of Extreme Home Makeover, I am not helping some unfortunate Kanevian (although this may be a contest in the future).  I am simply re-doing my digital abode.

Sometimes you just get bored with your space, or you are just inspired when you get to visit one of the many well designed/built homes in Kaneva.  In my case, it is both.  The first thing that I did after signing back into Kaneva after my short vacation, was to remove everything from my living space.  I mean everything.  I even set all patterns back to default.

Luckily,  I did not have a lot of “stuff” in my Kaneva apartment, so the job of “demolition” was quite simple.  Over the next few weeks (possibly months) I will be showing off the re-design and looking for feedback – positive or otherwise.  During this time of rebuilding, I will also try to interject some design and building tips for the inexperienced – or those just wanting to learn more.  For now, enjoy the view of what an empty Kaneva city loft looks like.
