Looking for Group
The Gaming contests are ones that involve gaining a top score or simply playing on Solia. Gaming contest rounds reset and winners are announced on the first of every month. Please remember these are meant to be fun, cheating ruins it for everyone. If you are caught cheating in any contest you will be disqualified from all contests that month and a week ban. Use of mules to cheat will result in loss of mules. Repeated cheating or use of "mule accounts" to cheat will result in getting permanently banned. Harassing other contestants of the contest is cheating. If you have a scheme or "special plan" to win it's probably against the rules and going to get you into trouble. Play fair and no one gets into trouble. Deal making while unsportsmanlike is to be upheld and "making a deal" to get your competitors to stop competing and then beating them last minute is scamming and cheating.
How to Participate: First, you may want to make a farm. This is optional as you do not need your own farm to participate but it can help you earn points! What you will need is a Watering Can, a Golden Watering Can will make watering faster but only a Silver Watering Can is needed. Many participants go beyond just watering their own farm though so it will take a bit more than that to win. Look in the Profession Forum for people looking for help keeping their farm watered or for lists such as this one for plots you can water. Every dry plot you water is worth 1 point! Remember a plot does not have to have a plant in it to count.
How to Participate: This requires you to start a farm. If you're having trouble you may want to try this guide. Once you've got the hang of farming you may want to try competing. Remember though it's a competition to pick the most crops so you want something fast growing not necessarily something with the largest profit margin.
How to Participate: First you need a thread in the Exchange or Charity forum with an Auction House upgrade. Once you have a shop set up use it to sell items in the AH. The item must be at least 750g to count for a point. The idea here is quantity of items you sell not the price of the items.
How to Participate: First you need a thread in the Exchange or Charity forum with an Auction House upgrade. Once you have set up a shop use it to sell items in the AH. Regardless of the price of the item you will get earner points. 1g is 1 point. If you sell an item for 5g your amount on the leader board goes up 5 points. Likewise if you sell an item for 100,000g you earn 100,000 points. Will you try to push a handful of very expensive items or go with selling a large amount of lower priced items? How you do it is up to you.
**PLEASE NOTE** The Exchange contests do have special sets of rules. Please read them before attempting to participate.
How to Participate: The idea is to gain levels, not to have the highest level pet. For this reason it may be best to start with an egg then a pet you've already begun to raise. Lower levels are easier to get through and every level gained counts for only 1 point regardless of if your pet goes from level 1 to 2 or from level 50 to 51. For help on how to raise a pet you may want to read this guide.
How to Participate: Enter and catch pets in Kogo Park. Every Pet caught is worth 1 point no matter if is a Dirty Egg or a Mynx. For help on how to use Kogo Park you may want to read this guide.
How to Participate: Once you've registered a pet get it out there and get it seen! Only Views that come from off-site sources will count toward the contest. So do you have a facebook? Post it on your wall! Frequent forum sites? Post it in your signature! Have a blog? Write about your pet and trying to win the contest! There's lots of ways to get your pet out there and get seen. The best part is doing this will not only get you point in the contest but make your pet grow faster and if someone signs up for Solia Online while looking at your pet you'll get referral tickets and points in the referral contest too! Just remember you cannot pay for clicks the people clicking must be real and must do so on their own. If you're having trouble registering your pet you may want to read this guide.
How to Participate: A referral is when you invite someone to Solia Online. In order for it to count for you, give them a link to your pet or your referral link. Once they've signed up they'll be given a time period to try the site out and see if Solia Online is for them. If they stick around you not only get a Referral point but a referral ticket as well which can be saved up and spent at Serge's Lockup.
How to Participate: Nothing special is needed to join this contests. Think you're the most talkative person on Solia? Let's find out, the person who makes the most posts wins. Remember spamming is not allowed and posts in the Testing forum does not count towards your score.
At any time you can see the top 10 for each category by looking on the Games page.
Skill contests unlike Gaming Contests require you go out of your way to do something. More than just be on site it requires you put in effort to participate. Skill contest rounds reset and winners are announced on the 15th of every month. Please remember these are meant to be fun, cheating ruins it for everyone. If you are caught cheating in any contest you will be disqualified from all contests that month. Repeated cheating will result in getting banned. Mule-voting is against the rules and will get you disqualified; mule voting for a friend will get them disqualified as well. Harassing other contestants of the contest is cheating. If you have a scheme or "special plan" to win it's probably against the rules and going to get you into trouble. Play fair and no one gets into trouble. Deal making while unsportsmanlike is to be upheld and "making a deal" to get your competitors to stop competing and then beating them last minute is scamming and cheating.
