Summer is here!

We hope you all have been enjoying your summer vacations so far! We enjoyed our break, but now the Event Team is getting back to work! We've got a ton of contests, competitions, and other events planned for the remainder of the summer and we're starting with a classic.

Your task is to create and submit a build that represents summer to you. Sandcastles, beaches, boating, traveling, or just plain old relaxation. Get creative with it! The Event Team will judge the final builds and the winners will receive prizes. Have Fun!
Ask our staff members if you have any questions or concerns.

****RULES****
In order to compete in the contest you must follow all of the following:
  • You must be the owner of the plot
  • Only 1 plot may be submitted per person
  • Only one builder may submit the plot
  • The build must have been made within the 1st - 15th
  • If you have a layered plot, the submitted build must be only one layer of the plot
  • The build must be on the PartyZone Creative server
  • Only submit your build once (Don't worry, we will look at them all)
  • No group submissions
  • World Edit is allowed
  • If you do not have world edit you may ask for assistance from a player who does
  • Additional help other than world edit will not be permitted
  • Do not copy builds
  • Standard rules of the creative server apply as well
  • You may remove the builds once the winners are announced but be sure to keep them until then. We will be judging some in person so we have to find them to do so.
  • Be very careful with who is added to your plot.

Hello partiers! We hope you have your sunscreen and sunglasses, because it's going to be a HOT Summer!
Take a seat and kick your feet up and read this month's Newsletter here, we've added a little something for you all to participate in!​

INTRODUCING OUR NEW COMMUNITY MAPS
It's been a while since we've had any community maps been accepted onto our network, and we think it's about time we started to add some more (with many more to be added in the coming weeks).

First off we have a map based off a CS:GO map by the same name and equal fanciness. There's plenty of places to find yourself in this larger than usual map, so be on the lookout for the murderer sneaking up on you through the labyrinth of halls within the castle.

This map was produced by two of our very own players, BenFii and Peterlajos, who have both been awarded VIP+ for their hard work! We think this map is fantastic for gameplay but you'll have to go in game and see for yourselves.​
[​IMG]
The 2nd of our double whammy map release would be Air Ship by Harrow__ who has also been given VIP+ for providing perfect new content for our dedicated Murder players to enjoy. There's lots of different levels and rooms for you to explore and hide in and it's definitely one of our favorite maps at the moment.​
[​IMG]

Th-th-tha-that's all folks, check back soon for more neato PartyZone content that we're sure you'll love! It would be great for these map submissions to become a regular addition so if you want to have YOUR MAP added to one of our games submit a build HERE and earn VIP+ for yourself and a friend if it gets accepted!

Until next time,
The PartyZone Team

Hello there fellow partiers! We are proud to announce the official release of a monthly Newsletter! We've been considering creating this for a while now and have only just found a pretty neat way of doing so.

We hope you like what the Newsletter has to offer so far, and don't fear, more will be added in the future!

For now, simply click here to see it for yourself, and don't be afraid to click on people's faces!​
[​IMG]INTRODUCING A NEW FORUM STYLE FOR 2017
It's been a little over 2 years since we first moved to XenForo and since then we've stuck to the same generic UI.X style, granted with some navy colors thrown in on occasion. I'm now happy to present a new theme bespoke to PartyZone that I've been working on which represents the server in full bright blue form!

These changes are the start of a network overhaul with new content that you'll see in the coming months, so if you're wanting to see fun, sparkly, maps and games stay tuned. We're also pushing to listen to you guys when it comes to changes so be sure to voice your ideas in the Suggestions section to help us make the network great, we wouldn't be here without you after all.

SOME NOTABLE CHANGES
- A redesigned navigation bar and header image that's more bright and cheerful than our last one!
- Secret konami code easter eggs scattered around the website, with more to be added.
- New fancy footer to gaze at when you get to the bottom of a post. Try hovering over the logo or text for transitions that are fresh out of the oven.
- The ability to change the color of your profile in the 'Preferences' section and also your header image! Taste the rainbow?
- More rounding in places, I've been informed we lost our squarepants.
- Various font weight changes for a nice mixture. I'm a fan of cookie mix.
- Home page changes so that we're less gray and gloom. There's more to come on that soon so keep your eyes and your bananas peeled.​
...AND a bunch of other awesome stuff in general that you'll have to check out yourself by browsing around!

Stay tuned for awesome new content to come in...
