Help Wanted!

posted Feb 20, 2011, 6:58 PM by Alex / PSN: TapDatApp



Hey all, Alex here, reporting that we need more help! I'm looking into building a new team that will be able to really help me support the site on a regular basis. It's not only hard to keep up with everything in the first place, but as other personal conflicts come up, it only takes my time away from the site, and we need more people to be there for it when I can't be but yet, still under my direction and working towards a common goal. Some of the main skills and positions I'm looking for when recruiting people this time around are:
  • General Coding Experience & Knowledge
  • Graphic Animation and Design Skills
  • Forum Maintenance, Improvement, and Community Communication Skills
  • Writing Experience (and of high quality work)
  • Confident & Experienced Creators in LittleBigPlanet
  • Producers, Sponsors, Partnerships, and Funders
If you think you might just fit the bill for any of these categories and are willing to donate some time and effort into the site, drop me a well-informed email at Alex@Sacktastic.com Try to include examples of your skill in the message as well. And speaking of "donate", one of the easiest and most useful ways of helping out with the website is always through monetary donation. And don't forget that with our secure PayPal system, you can choose to donate any amount of your choosing! Just click the button below to get started:

Prequel to the Sequel Competition Results!

posted Dec 3, 2010, 9:03 PM by Alex / PSN: TapDatApp   [ updated Dec 4, 2010, 1:08 PM ]

PRESENTS
THE RESULTS:

Hiya everybody! As you may very well know, for the past few months, Sacktastic™ has been running our first ever LittleBigPlanet Competition in which users try to recreate any sort of specific LittleBigPlanet 2 Level, but in LittleBigPlanet 1 for the PlayStation 3. This one was especially...well, special! Why you ask? Because the Winner has been Promised to Receive an Ultra Rare Prize CROWN to Wear in Both LittleBigPlanet 1 & 2, thanks to the amazing folks over at Media Molecule & Sony PlayStation. First we'd like to say that the contest went really well. Through this process, we gained tons of traffic, had a great amount of levels entered into the contest with lots of people putting some really hard work into their creations, and many new friendly community faces have joined us along the way. All properly submitted entries were judged by the Sacktastic™ Team in aspects of accuracy, quality, originality, and fun. There are three main places for the winning trio, along with a few different special sections where we will recognize specific levels that did not win, but excelled in particular aspects of the judging process and deserve to be mentioned. So without further ado...we'd like to Officially Announce the Results of the Sacktastic™ "Prequel to the Sequel" Competition!


THE NEWLY 'LBP ROYAL' WINNER OF THE SACKTASTIC™ "PREQUEL TO THE SEQUEL" COMPETITION IS...
 
Lady_Wulf / PSN: Barachiel-
for the level 


*Congratulations Lady_Wulf! You are now the newest member of the LittleBigPlanet Royalty Family. Your level truly blew us away on all sections of the chart. It was highly accurate and represented the real level perfectly and it had a lovely and pleasing design to it. On top of all this, it was made flawlessly while only using the tools provided in the Original LittleBigPlanet PlayStation 3 Game, yet it still replicated the unique LittleBigPlanet 2 Feeling oh so well. Your level is truly one of the most impressive games ever...out of all of the millions of levels now published on LBP. We can tell a lot of hard work and effort went into creating this entry and thus; we feel that your win was definitely well deserved. Once again, CONGRATULATIONS - we will contact you shortly with a Special PlayStation Store Promotional Code for your Region that will allow you to download your Rare Prize CROWN DLC! You have made all of us here at Sacktastic™ very proud and we hope you continue to be an active member of our community :)


OH and as if the Amazing Crown Itself wasn't enough...you are also hereby invited to join the LittleBigPlanet 2 BETA Program (must live in a participating region). More details on how you can get cracking and download the LBP2 BETA Client will be included when we contact you.

THE RUNNER-UPS:

*2nd Place*
Strangepom (Username & PSN)
for the level 
~
*3rd Place*
Jedi_1993 (Username & PSN)
for the level 


*Congratulations to both Strangepom & Jedi_1993! You two made the judging process especially tough on us. Strangepom's Pipe Dreams Replica is as close as you can get to the real thing in the first game, while Jedi's Gravity Arena Replica gives off the exact same look, feel, & vibe one experiences from the real Creatinator-&-Multiplayer based minigame. The Sacktastic™ Team looks forward to interviewing both of you in the near future and as a little special treat, you are both invited to join the Official LittleBigPlanet 2 BETA Program (must live in a participating region). If you are already in the BETA, we may be able to arrange for you to giveaway your earned BETA Codes to personal friends of your own who may not have been invited :)

Your Wish is Our Command - More Time to Earn That CROWN!

As the saying goes, "When one door closes, another opens." - Well, we here at Sacktastic™ plan to implement just that. As many of you probably know, LittleBigPlanet 2 was unfortunately delayed somewhat majorly today to a release date of January 18th, 2011. Because this opens a huge window of time for the LBP Community, we are going to extend the deadline for our "Prequel to the Sequel CROWN Contest" even further, as many of you have requested. As of our last post, it was scheduled to end right after midnight, on the new day of October 9. But now, it will end right after midnight, on the new day of November 16, the original release date for LittleBigPlanet 2 in North America to commemorate a day that was scheduled to play a significant role in LittleBigPlanet History. Although we realize the extension date is a little bit more drastic this time, it is all for good reason. Because LittleBigPlanet 2 won't be making the rounds until after the Holidays this year, a lot of people are going to have more free time on their hands when playing video games. We want the focus to stay on LBP though, and after all, this competition is for the Rare Royal Prize CROWN, so we figured people need to be able to take as much time as they need to fully create & perfect their level entry. We are also a pretty brand-spanking new website, so a lot of people did not hear about the contest until recently, leaving them awhile behind. This extension gives a lot of people a big opportunity to take a shot at winning the highly-coveted Crown, as well as have fans continue to focus on the amazing levels we are going to see in LittleBigPlanet 2 soon enough. We are also trying very hard to come-up with an absolutely awesome prize for our 2nd & 3rd Place Winners, so Stay Tuned for More News on That! 

The Conditions Have Now Been Updated to Reflect This Change: The contest period will officially end on November 16th, 2010 at 12:01 AM Eastern Standard Time, at this point, you may no longer publish and/or re-publish your entries online nor submit your entry into the contest properly.

Special Thanks Once Again for All the Love & Support We Receive - We Wish You All the Best of Luck! :)

(Also Note: #9 on the Official Conditions List Does & Has Stated: 
Sacktastic
™ reserves the right to cancel, postpone, delay, or extend the duration of the contest period, judging period, etc. for any reason at any time, although such instances may only occur if we do not receive a sufficient amount of entries [to be determined by

...Now that our silly little celebratory reference is out of the way and PlayStation Move is finally available, we have something we need to say. At this point, the Sacktastic™ "Prequel to the Sequel Contest" was scheduled to end right after midnight, on the new day of October 2. The Team was unaware though (at the time the end date was established) that we have a very important meeting to attend throughout this day and will be preoccupied at that moment. With that being said, we also want to give people more of a chance to get their entries done without rushing to complete them on time. And so, we are now going to officially extend the contest entry period end date of the Sacktastic™ "Prequel to the Sequel Contest" to right after midnight, on the new day of October 9, a full week later. The Conditions Have Now Been Updated to Reflect This Change: The contest period will officially end on October 9th, 2010 at 12:01 AM Eastern Standard Time, at this point, you may no longer publish and/or re-publish your entries online nor submit your entry into the contest properly.

Thanks for All the Support & Good-Luck Everybody! :)
