Contest Entry Problems & Message to Spammers & News Update
Seems we have been having some technical difficulties receiving emails for people to enter our contest.
Seems we have been having some technical difficulties receiving emails for people to enter our contest. IF there is anybody who has sent us an entry and has NOT received a reply back from us confirming that we got it, chances are we never got it. If you are in this category please re-send your entries to our new email address we made hmpcontests@gmail.com Just follow the same procedure just attach a picture of your entry and name the email subject title HMP Conetest or HMP Fan Art Contest etc. Remember to change the © to the at symbol when you copy and paste the email address.

In light of us just discovering this problem now at the end of Feb, we have decided to have a grace period of 1 week for anyone who had tried entering before but got no reply to send us their entries again to the new email mentioned above. So you have until March the 8th to send us your entries now, or if you never got a reply from us send them again before the 8th! Winner will be announced on March 15th

Also just an additional message to the spammers that have been frequenting HMP. And we know these spammers are not Spambots because they are getting through our eCaptcha defense during sign up. So I know this will not be read but I have to say something because its driving me insane when everytime I check on the site theres been 3 or 4 new members and all of them spammed and left. Leaving me to clean up their crap they left behind.

This is directed to the spammers that keep signing up and messing up our help forum. Stop wasting your time posting your garbled posts advertising your products. We are just going to delete them anyways, and you could use your time, no matter how pathetic it may be, more wisely by constructing your OWN website to advertise instead of inconviniencing other websites where people arent going to read your posts anyways.

Ok now that that has been said, new poll & banner for the month of March. The new poll will be "How long have you been playing HM games?"

These are the results from last months poll:

1st place tie with Harvest Moon A Wonderful Life and Other with 13 votes each
2nd Grand BAzaar and Tale of Two Towns style animation 10 votes
3rd Harvest Moon 64 with 8

Which HM game do you like the graphics/animation the most?

HM:64 Votes: 8 | 14.29%

HM: Back to Nature Votes: 6 | 10.71%

HM: A Wonderful Life Votes: 13 | 23.21%

[Just a repost of the 1st news post about the contest to keepthe info on the 1st page of news with some changes. since we haven't got that many entries yet, we decided to lower the minimum entries we need to 25 and are extending the contest deadline to Feb 29th!]

For the 1st time in HMP history. We are holding a contest with a free give-away prize for the winner in celebration of getting 100 subscribers to our Youtube Channel! We will be giving away a copy of Harvest Moon: The Tale of Two Towns to the person who submits the best fan art of a Harvestmoon Character of your choice! The Winner will get the regular DS version of the game, once they are chosen as the winner. If you are overseas from North America, we will give the winner (provided they do not live in North America) an Amazon Gift Card worth $30 US dollars for you to purchase the game yourself to keep shipping costs down as you will have to pay shipping. This applies for overseas contestants only. Canada and US residents will not have to pay shipping.

To enter our contest you can email your art entry under the email subject "HMP Fan Art Contest" to the email listed at the bottom of this news post. You can enter the contest before you actually have your artwork finished. Simply just email us still and let us know you would like to participate as soon as you can. We also forgot to mention, you must be 13 years of age or older to participate.

The criteria for your artwork to qualify for the contest is as follows:

- The artwork must have character(s) that are based on an HM game no older then Harvestmoon 64 and BTN to present. This includes all games for all systems up until the present that had the title "Harvest Moon" excluding the Innocent Life and Rune Factory games.
- The artwork can be any character(s) seen in the games, be it a main character, bachelorette, bachelor or regular villager, Harvest Sprites, or even farm animals and crops as well. However, if you draw the Main Character, we would like to see entries with the Main Character with another one of the game characters for variety.
- We will be paying close attention to detail and originality. The more interesting and detailed your entry is, the better chance you will have at winning.
- You must make sure there is some way you can prove to us that the artwork you submit is authentic and done by you only.
- Your submission can be in any medium you wish. Be it hand drawn, sketched, painted, done on a picture editing program or even make a Mii on your Wii console etc. you could even make a sculpture out of clay even. Just take a picture of your entry and email it to us

The contest will run for the next 2 months starting this Sunday December 11th 2011 to Feburary 29th 2012. Unfortunatly though, we will only have a prize for the 1st place winner since this is our 1st contest and have no idea what kind of a turn out we will get. If though we find that we do not get enough submissions for the contest we will not be doing the giveaway! So make sure to submit so we can give this oppertunity to you! We need to get at least 25 submissions to hold a fair contest, so be sure to do your part to enter!

News Post Comments
We will no longer be allowing comments to be posted on the news posts once they go to page 2 of the news on the main page.
We will no longer be allowing comments to be posted on the news posts once they go to page 2 of the news on the main page. This is because lately every single spammer that hits the site desides to post their spam posts in the comments. Additionally, due to the software HMP uses for the website there is no quick way to remove the posts and Im sick of spending 3 hours going through 27 pages of news and removing the comments everytime we get hit with a spam wave. But we will be adding a new sticky topic to the forum under Feedback & Forum Comments for any comments or questions you have regarding news posts that are on page 2 or later. The link to the sticky is below.

Website Updates
As you have noticed we have been changing a few things around HMP.
As you have noticed we have been changing a few things around HMP. 1st of all, to access our guides, you can find them under the buttons across the top of the main page, directly under the banner. Instead of having a button for each and every game, we catagorized them by which videogame system they are for. When you hover over the button a drop menu will appear listing the games. For example if you want to look up the guide for Harvest Moon AWL. Hover over the Gamecube button and a drop menu will appear, and then you click on A Wonderful Life. Nice and simple, and it looks alot tidier as well.

Also we will be slowly changing different icons around the website to give it a more "harvestmoon-y" feel to it. Such icons as the PM icons, the user icons on the "Online" panel have already been chanegd to a little icon of the main character on the classic HM games. And there will be much much more, so keep your eye out for them!

Thats all for now! But there will be more changes very soon, so we will keep you updated as they come along. Also no new updates on the progress of the contest. we are still sitting at 4 entries to far. So remember to tell your friends so we can give you a copy of Two Towns!

Guide Updates & Contest Report
So, we recently re-vamped the bachelor/ettes sections in a few of our guides that were missing the pictures and didnt match the layout of our other guides.
So, we recently re-vamped the bachelor/ettes sections in a few of our guides that were missing the pictures and didnt match the layout of our other guides. If you are interested in checking these out, the guides we worked on were for Animal Parade, Harvest Moon DS and DS Cute and Rune Factory. The marriage candidate sections are now easy to navigate and easier to read then before!

We recently added a detailed Map and Info section for Tale of Two Towns along with a section about the expansions! The map section has detailed maps of every area of the Two Towns world. Each main point of interest in each area is labeled and then below the picture is a detailed description of what the number has labeled on the map! To check them out, Click here for the Maps section! or Click here for the Expansions section!

We also have a new upload from Hylianknightmare. This contains a save file from Animal Parade, and the link to the upload is in his Glitch Guide in the Animal Parade Section. There is a link to the guide below

Missing Child Glitch Guide
