The idea's pretty simple: introduce a new item and a crafting recipe that fits it. If it's cool, funny, and fits in, it'll get added to the game. And you'll get fabulous prizes.
What kinds of recipes?
Welding, Assembly, Catalyze, or Metalmorph. Whatever you want. Just make sure it fits into the current structure if you're adding Catalyze or Metalmorph.
How should it be formatted? Include a recipe and a description for the new item. Be sure to mention what type of crafting it's for. You don't need to include stats, we'll take care of that.

This pin is so mysterious, no one has even heard of it. And those who who have heard of it dare not speak its name.
For Catalyze and Metalmorph, you'd only have one ingredient up front (so tok'l ore = yuggothium), but otherwise that's the same.
How should the item fit into the recipe? You can have the new item be the result or one of the ingredients. Only one new item per recipe, though.
How many can you submit? Each person can submit one entry for each type of crafting. If you win more than once you get more prizes.
Who'll be judging these? Just me. This means everyone (except me) is welcome to entering, including devteam members.
What can you win? Special items that I'll only be granting for contests like this one. The creator of each implemented item will get one and the best handful may just receive something special on top of that.
Entries will close on March 20th and I'll announce the winners on the next podcast.
Let me know if there are any questions about the rules. Otherwise, I look forward to seeing everyone's entries.
