    It's on! I'm in for "open" category... even if my Province of Canada(Quebec is NOT part of Canada, since 1964, but that is political) is excluded from this contest.

    I will then compete as NOT ELIGIBLE, as non-prize winner.

    All Tycoons have fun with it!

    Thank you Atari

    Why hype a contest? The tweet of stream delay made it sound like Atari was going to finally release some of the missing content, but... a contest? How many people are going to enter, there is never more than 200 people playing at a time?

    Also Atari leaves you out of the competition, why thank them? You deserve better.

    Edit: apparently excluding Quebec is standard for competitions, so carry on. Still seems stupid.

    It's not their fault Quebec is(openly rebellious Province) not legally part of Canada anymore. I will participate in every contest or anything that will make this game grow, even out-of-category.

    I say thanks to Atari for putting forward initiatives and a bit of money to stimulate the community growing. And for being pro-active about this title.

    It's going to be interesting to see what people can build in the game. Can't wait to start building my entry soon. I just have a couple questions:
    1. Can we use UGC in the open category? I assume so, but I just wanted to make sure.
    2. Does the UGC have to be ours, or can we take it from the steam workshop?
