Since response on the brand-new Weekly Content Contest has been so positive, we are making some revisions to the proposed schedule. One of those changes? Announcing the theme of the week a bit earlier, to give people plenty of time to work on submissions! We want to make sure everyone has a chance to make their entries the best they can be, and have as much fun with the contest as possible. Texture packs, mods and skins can all take awhile to create, and we want to make sure everyone has a fair chance!
This week's theme is: Halloween Texture Pack!
Here's how it works: between now and Wednesday, November 2nd, participants create (or enter an already created) appropriately themed texture pack. When your entry is completed, entries can be submitted in this thread by filling out the following:
Name(s) of who is working on the entry:

Any number of people can work on the entry, and we encourage you to create your entry however you like, with whomever you like! When you've completed your entry, fill out the above and post it in this thread! On Wednesday, November 2nd, we will pick out approximately 10 entries, and create a voting thread. That's where everyone gets to participate; we need you guys to vote on the winners! On Friday, November 4th at 6pm GMT, we will tally up the votes, and whoever has the most votes will have a feature article review on the front page that same day!
Additionally, we will announce the medium and theme for the following week's contest on Friday. While we cannot divulge the theme just yet, we can say that the medium will be mods, so keep an eye out for that! We look forward to seeing your entries - good luck!
Note - every Weekly Content Contest will focus on the most recent full release of Minecraft at the time the contest begins. Presently, that is 1.8.1.
