I have prizes to give, you want the prizes I have, so help me think up some new contests the site can hold to vary things up a bit. As you may have noticed, a number of the same contests have been repeated, and while I will probably keep doing those too, it would be nice to have some new ones every now and again. Variety is the spice of life, after all.

So if you have any ideas or thoughts on contests we could have here, post away! I am open to any and all suggestions! I'll see if I can't make some of them work.

We could have a role-playing tournament, where contestants battle each other for the prize. How about that? I know, some of you think it's stupid, but it's just a suggestion. That's all.

Ok well heres a few that i can think of:

Best Yuri Scene (i would ask for best yaoi scene but with this board..like that'll happen).
Best Romantic Scene
Best Action Video Game
Best Comedy Movie

Just things like that, mostly off the top of my head.

YES!!! Let's force our leader to watch yaoi and and vote for the best scene!!!
MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! :twisted:

Yeah, I would probably go with PrfsrSnapesAngel's idea, because it's better than having a tournament and wouldn't take as long too.

That's why I will beat at least you, because I always write in English, honing my skills! :lol2:

Okay, okay, I admit it's not entirely true. :D

I write three kinds of texts: Sci-Fi, travelogues (fantasy and non-fiction), and motivation analyses.
I write Sci-Fi in English because I think it's simply the best language for that.

The other sorts are in German. Especially the pieces about motivation... it's deeper stuff, and German is well suited for melancholic or dry topics, imho (which our philosophers - Hegel, Nietzsche, Kant, Marx, Heidegger if you will - have proven well enough).
Like about the one guy who kills himself because he sees no future for himself, or the other guy who sees his image of his grandparents destroyed when he accompanies them to a restaurant and the two get totally drunk for no reason.
I could not convey the intended notions properly in English, the tone wouldn't be right. Plus my German style is heavily influenced by Kafka, who is very difficult to translate without taking something fundamental away. :|

How something like best fan art or drawing of some sort.
Just an idea, because I can't draw worth beans.

I like that idea, but the only ones who can actually draw are Storm_Shinobi, Fresno, NEiTH and I, but there's no way I stand a chance against then because I can't draw humans too well. Creatures and dinos yes, but humans, well I'll have to practice more.

:lol:

That's sort of the problem though. In effect, we have few active members, and while some people will come to just do the contest, either from being away for a while or join the forum for it, there is a certain lack of participation that will be had on these more specific ones. A short story one sounds fine, but if we only have 3-4 people who post something it's kind of unfortunate. The same sort of thing will happen with any sort of art contest, sadly.

I'll try and get some going when I have a little more free time on my hands, and hopefully some of them will get a bit more participation than I am imagining they will :(

Why's that unfortunate? With so few participants they could all get prizes. :mrgreen:

Well, I do agree that there has to be something different.
Hm... how about a photo contest? (Hmpf, maybe not everyone has a camera...)

Concept: Shoot a picture you deem interesting, and it has to be a new picture, made after the contest has started, not something you shot a year ago or anything. Some cameras make control easy as you can have the date displayed in the picture.
So far the jury has to trust the participants that they didn't photoshop the dates and that they shot the photograph themselves. I can't think of a solution for that right now.
Just a rough idea.

What about an anime or game pitch, A title and a synopsis of a title that doesn't exist but you'd like to less effort than a short story contest.
