Well, I am sadly not ready as of yet to do any contest. The first one will be for who takes the cake in designing a new banner for the forum and rest of the site. I am currently working on getting the site redesigned, possibly the forum as well, so as soon as I find out the dimensions of the new banner areas I will start the contest. I have a number of prizes in mind, so you will have to stay tuned. P.S., the contest may have multiple winners if I use different peoples banners across the site, so then we would have different levels of winners based on quantity of banners used, with appropriate prizes to match. Hopefully it wont take too long to get things moving.

When you say contests, are you referring to the Favorite Anime Character contests we held annually BRS, or are you referring to totally new contests with mind-blowing, original ideas? lol 8)

Different things. I do not know how often I will hold them, or what they will be exactly, but I am thinking about it. I am not sure what the old BRS contests were, so someone will have to enlighten me :idea:

Hopefully they will be mind blowing original ideas, but I make no promises :wink:.

Those were great endeavours.
I think procedure was the following: Everybody appointed two characters and those who received a minimum number of votes entered the final rounds. Sets of remaining characters were then compiled (like "Vote A vs. B!") and each one received further voting until only one of the original number eventually remained.
Well, that's what I remember. I'm sure other people have had more insight... :wink:

actually i think it was more along the lines of everyone nominating 10 different characters and then the characters with the most votes from there were in the contest. that was how it was in the first two at least, wasn't around to check if there was a third.

That sounds reasonable as well, although 10... was it that much? Well, I only experienced one of those contests.
Another one would be cool anyway.

I was in two of those contests. Yes, now I remember. Everyone would choose their top 10 characters. Then the 32 (or 64) most picked would be chosen, the brackets would be divided up and members would vote on individual characters competing against each other, till it was narrowed down to the final one (after 5 or 6 rounds).

We should definitely hold it again! 8)

I am all for it, but someone who was here should start it if they remember exactly how it went.

the only one we're missing is RK86 of the people who made the first one. I can have a look into organizing another one but not in the near forseable future. got a bit much on my plate at the moment.

I'm rather involved in my master's thesis and other seminars, so I could hardly help with organizational stuff although I would really like to.

I am just looking for someone to set it up. I can run the actual contest, I just need to know exactly how it goes, since I don't really know. Would probably be good to have someone helping me with it as well, since it seems to be a lot of work, especially someone that knows how to run it. If you're up to it AMDS, you are welcome to help me with it :mrgreen:

Well I've taken a course in Web Design, if that helps. :mrgreen:

Then again, you're probably running off a specific program. :roll: Let me know what I can do. :D

Alright, you are going to have to explain how this will work to me, and what we need web design for...?

um... was it not just a bunch of voting threads? you just have to seed the characters, make a tree then start making a schedule to open/close threads.


step 1: everybody submits 10 characters (or whichever number we see fit)
step 2: seed the characters
step 3: create images for the characters in the running (most time consuming)
step 4: set a schedule - length of time each poll is open, etc.
step 5: close polls and the winner proceeds to next round (moderator must be involved)
step 6: repeat until the final
