The "BarzooMonkey's Next Big Contest" Contest (in Contests)
Okay, I know the Comedy contest isn't quite done yet, but this one isn't really very big in itself.
What I'm looking for is the idea for my next big contest.
Between now and midnight Sunday evening/Monday morning, the contestant who comes up with the idea I consider best and decide to use for my next big prize contest gets $100K.
Pretty easy, huh? You can post here, or CM me if there is supposed to any surprise involved in your idea.

Find a complex forum and place a picture of Waldo (from Where's Waldo?) somewhere within it. Then, have the players search through the forum until they find the post. Perhaps put a secret message with the post that they have to quote so you know they found it? Either way, it'd be highly original.
...and by complex, I mean absolutely full of threads and topics/subdivisions, etc.

Two words: Rap Battle

a pg rap battle? that out to be interesting..
but as for my suggestion, i'd say funniest botcheck.
hardest botcheck (I have a ringer I'm saving for this one)
worst possible grammar contest (basties mind will blow and kill us all)
liver n onions eating contest
monkey knife fight

A PG rap battle with Bast as the judge? Proper spelling and grammar in a rap battle? That *ought to be even more interesting.
Seriously though. That contest was already done
and, if I recall correctly, Sefton won.
Since you already started with funniest CBer you could always just continue on with other superlatives. Such as "most popular", "most likely to succeed", and "least likely to be sober when posting".
I, on the other hand, would rather see a contest on who can give the most compelling argument for or against United States support for the International Criminal Court... in leet speak.

Have people find the funniest pic that they can or a pic to do with CB

A programming contest? You supply a problem, and the winner is either the first to finish it, or the one with the best/fastest/nicest/etc code.

I've just watched the Tim Burton film Big Fish; how about a tall tale/ campfire stories competition? You know the ones, you're sat around a fire at night toasting marshmallows and either out to scare your listeners or tell them the tallest tale?

Another one: The Carnage Blender Theme Tune. Every group of oddball misfits has to have a theme tune! Ours will have to be lyrics rather than music, as befits a text based game.
The Monkees had one, why can't we?!?!?
"i'd say funniest botcheck"
I win! I've just got what you do to that annoying cat (watch out Bast! :P )
Punt // Puss
Bye bye cat! :D
Who can write the best story relating to CB!

My user name is Guardian of the Glen. My character name is Whyspersym . My minions are all fairy names. I find it a little disappointing that no one can read where I took inspiration to create my characters from.
I would like to know how to share my bio other than cutting and pasting. There are several characters I would like to read.
Any ideas or suggestions?

Best character biography! Great idea for a contest!!! ;)
I am giving Guardian of the Glen credit for this entry because I absolutely adore the idea :)
Just a day-and-a-half-left bump :)
hehe, I know one thing if you want that as a contest I may have a fairly long one

How about something along the lines of a "best video or picture" contest where people upload real unaltered photos that somehow relate to CB? Just a thought, lets see some photographers in action!
March 25 2006 10:59 PM EST
Perhaps best CB2 skin? Worst name change? (I win!!!)
How about, who can write the biggest conversation in 1337(leet) speech? Also, funniest botcheck would be amusing =)

Why not appeal to the many sects of the CB community; best flash animation, best program, best graphic design, best 3d image, etc., all relating to CB.
Guardian of the Glen wins, because if I get around to another big contest, that's the contest I'm going to run.
Thanks everyone for all of the great ideas! :)
