Welcome to the new Epics contest collection topic! Since we have to log out to look at the previous Epics Contest History, not to mention this older one here, I think it's time for an updatable topic. Thank you Senjo for running the old topic! Most of the information here was gathered, edited, and commented on by her. Old forum links will be marked with a lovely little *, so be warned!Please DO NOT ask when the next library contest is going to be. Many contests require brand new epics, so the staff do not wish to share contest dates and details until the topic is posted.
