So, a lot of members keep mentioning contests, and I think contests are a great idea. I'm making this thread so that people can discuss contest ideas they have. And it's also to help me remember. ^_^ Otherwise, I'm just like "oh! That's a great idea! -forgets the next day-"
Now, contests won't be implemented for some time along with some other updates that are pending. But I want to get this thread going so people can just talk about what contest ideas they have. Contests, of course, would be associated with a reward to make things more competitive and interesting. Don't ask about rewards yet. K? Cool. =)
Please follow this template! I'm going to be making a list in this post so people know what's been suggested without having to read the entire thread. If you want to discuss a certain contest on the list, simply state the title and then say what you want to say. This will help keep things more organized.
Please bring up any concerns, arguments, agreements to any of the suggested contests.
Title: The title of your contest idea
Type: Is it a graphics contest? Writing contest? Something else? Describe it.
Structure: Explain what your contest idea is about. What will happen? How can people enter? And how should it be judged?
Notes: Anything you want to add about your contest idea.*~CONTESTS~*
Title: PLAWRIMO! (Stand for Plagued Writers Month)
Type: A writing contest
Structure: I got this idea from talking with Kyle a few nights ago about the novel I'm working on. The idea for this contest is basically NANOWRIMO. During a particular Month of each year (Or week of each month, Day of each week. Whatever) Everyone who enters is charged with writing out a Short story about Plagued. It can deal with any of your characters, but it is solely about them. Each entry will be judged by volunteers, and the criteria is Length, Originality, Grammar, Spelling and Characterization.
Notes: I think it could be neato.
Type: Photography Contest
Structure: Way I see it, it can be run once a month, maybe once a week and each round a "theme" is posted up, participants have to take a photo following that theme. Photoshopping of images could be allowed, if it happens an original and 'Shopped image should be posted up. There can be a "Panel" like Charity suggested for hers, or perhaps a poll.
Notes: I thought of this just now, because I have my Pride and Joy Nikon that doesn't get enough use...
