Kindness Pays (in Contests)


Godpanda April 4 2007 3:24 PM EDT

I love CB. And I'm pretty sure everyone loves CB. So here's your chance to prove it.

I'm sponsoring a contest that will promote random acts of kindness.


I started today. I do them occasionally, giving out animals in chat (1-10k) or sending people loans and stuff. I see other players who do similar things. And I like it. Alot.

But I see alot of players who could do great things, but don't. Either because they don't think of them, or whatever.


I'm going to make this a 1 month contest. At the end of it, me (and whoever I get to judge) will award the 5 most thoughtful, decent, helpful random acts of kindness.

How do you play? Do something nice. Post it here. Forget being modest. Seriously. You know when you do something nice, so go ahead. I understand you aren't doing it for profit but... everyone likes shiny stuff.

So get out there and start doing good, nice things :) then post them here.

P.S. If someone does something nice FOR YOU and are too modest to say it themselves, post it here for them. The contest takes both types of entries.


As of now, the prizes are undecided. Of course though, I plan on making them worth the effort involved. I try and get the top 5 prizes together as soon as I can, with a list of judges.

Slayer has currently agreed to be a judge.

Also, if you wish to donate to this contest (Sorry lol, but it can't count towards a good deed) send the money / items to Community Chest.


Thanks in advance.

Any questions, Chatmail me.

Current prizes are (these may change, but only will get better) 388k Cash. ToA (can be sold to store for 500000) And a HoD. +9.

Godpanda April 4 2007 3:25 PM EDT

Just to give you all an example of a good deed something like :

Saw that Johnnywas had 150k left in a deal with another player. I payed that off for him.

Good deed^

Oh, and of course, I can't win anything from my own contest lol.

tscm April 4 2007 3:26 PM EDT

* th00p good deeds Titan in the face

lostling April 4 2007 3:32 PM EDT

pop loaned 3 corns to 3 people including me for a day :)
QBPopsicle Man

lostling April 4 2007 3:36 PM EDT

Rubberduck loaned me a corn and a AOF for a day :)

lostling April 4 2007 3:38 PM EDT

deifeln lent me 2 of his HOCs for a day ^^

lostling April 4 2007 3:39 PM EDT

tender_T-BONE lent me his HOC indefinitely(at least until he needs it :X)

Adminedyit April 4 2007 3:40 PM EDT

Popsicle Man is always loaning gear and helping people out with their strats, he loaned me a massive set of DB today with out me even having to ask.

lostling April 4 2007 3:41 PM EDT

tender_T-BONE lent my bro Draugluin his JKF indefinitely(same conditions)

NewLeviathan April 4 2007 3:42 PM EDT

edyit gave me his HoC for 28 days very cheap (for transfers only) :)

Godpanda April 4 2007 3:48 PM EDT

I will try and keep track of all of these.

Popsicle_Man = Loaned gear (4)

deifeln = Loaned gear(1)

edyit = Loaned gear (2)

tender_T-BONE = Loaned gear (2)


Seeing as I don't want this to become an "I have more stuff to give then you do" though loaning gear is a good deed, and will count towards how much you do, the amount a player has to give will (most likely) be brought into consideration. So, you players who simply can't give 100 million NW items out, no fear, you aren't out of the running by any means.

Secondly, edyit has agreed to be a judge.





Fantasysage April 4 2007 3:50 PM EDT

I think pops just wins, the guys has loaned me so much stuff i lost count. hes always loaning stuff out so people can fight higher or test strats.

Godpanda April 4 2007 3:53 PM EDT

Maybe I should say this again. While PM is -very- kind. He is. But he also has the items to spare. He doesn't automatically win just because he is richest. There are others ways to do kind things.

So while PM definitely does get points in my book for loaning out and helping so many people, he doesn't get them all.


Gandalf April 4 2007 3:54 PM EDT

yeah Pop's really kind that way, we love you Popsicle_Man. :D

lostling April 4 2007 3:56 PM EDT

Gandalf lent me 2 DBs for 7 days :)

Blarg April 4 2007 4:08 PM EDT

I loaned lukey 1.9 mil last month.

Talion April 4 2007 4:12 PM EDT

When Johnnywas encounters Explosive Shots in the weapons store, he buys them and just transfers them to a random SoD user.

Thanks man!

FrostRime April 4 2007 4:18 PM EDT

mimic loaned me some equipment to help me out, and so far, it's definitely doing the trick :D

{CB1}Lukeyman April 4 2007 4:39 PM EDT

Go Blargeh!! ^_^

lostling April 4 2007 4:41 PM EDT

QBJohnnywas April 4 2007 6:11 PM EDT

They're not quite so random, but I feel that Barzoo's contests are certainly acts of kindness and generosity and deserve a big mention!


;)

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] April 4 2007 6:19 PM EDT


Mr. Monkey sends me a smile every day! He's fabulous like that.

QBsutekh137 April 4 2007 6:24 PM EDT

Popsicle Man has loaned me gear, loaned me cash for testing, and often gives me ideas that help me not have to test things at all. *smile*

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] April 4 2007 8:02 PM EDT

Novice always gives us a piece of his mind in every thread.
I find it very kind that someone would hand out such an important part of their being as often as he does.

;P

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] April 4 2007 9:17 PM EDT

Jonathon loaned us his mug for a contest does that count ??

tscm April 4 2007 10:23 PM EDT

Jon is very kind for creating CB just for me.

I announced in chat that I finally got my UC up to 100, and ranger suddenly PMs me and sends me some very very nice equipment. I woul think that counts as a RAM!

BTW TY Range! :)

(I use library computers, so it can't run. And of course that's a good deed lol)

tscm April 5 2007 8:31 PM EDT

<OddBird> keep shakin' that booty, you got my attention!

OB is the most considerate guy in chat. If everyone else ignores you, he'll be there to chat you up. :)

QBRanger April 6 2007 2:50 PM EDT

Beee is selling stuff off his admin character.

Stuff that was repossessed already.

While it is fun for the community, it is not his stuff he is using.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] April 7 2007 1:23 PM EDT

Mikel April 8 2007 1:36 PM EDT

I would like to recognize Gandolf for giving away items.

{CB1}Lukeyman April 8 2007 1:38 PM EDT

Zoglog.. he found my 24 episode.. i love him!

QBRanger April 8 2007 1:39 PM EDT

I think Bast should win this contest hands down.

For her constant giving away of seekers she paid over 30 cb2 each for.

Especially to those who cannot use seekers like FB mages, so if/when eventually they change to an archer (in a few months to never), they will be well stocked up on ammo.

Mikel April 8 2007 1:41 PM EDT

When does this contest end by the way.

Slashundhack [We Forge Our Own Stuff] April 8 2007 4:39 PM EDT

Ah give it to verifex ya gotta love the script.

Phrede April 8 2007 5:34 PM EDT

I second PM's nomination of Bast - she is always very generous with her ammo - she even offerred me some.

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] April 8 2007 5:43 PM EDT

yea give it to verifex he disrves it for hte script alone, he also gives loans
dont give it to bast, she dont deserve a single cb money piece,always nice, yea right, only nice to maby 10 ppl so no for bastand yes for verifex

th00p April 8 2007 6:37 PM EDT

Bast! Not only is she standing up to the unfair abuse of certain people, she's also the official CB spelling and grammar checker!

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] April 8 2007 7:43 PM EDT

lol Lukey, I doubt suggesting illegitimate (RE: not illegal) websites that I already use myself for television programs can be classed as an act of kindness.
Although by all means GW, you can add me to the list if it suits you also ;P

Godpanda April 9 2007 4:23 PM EDT

Maybe I should point this out... a good deed is a good deed. The motivations behind it don't matter, whether you -like- that person or not doesn't matter. Bast should get credit, if for nothing else then the fact (AoD) that she brings many players happiness and aid.

AdminNightStrike April 9 2007 4:49 PM EDT

I'd like to withdraw myself from the contest...

Ok, Zoglog gets a mention. He scored some ex shots in the store and gave them to me, so I could play Santa as I like to! So Zog did something for me; and by doing so did something for two other people as well.

Ah. I've a lovely warm feeling. ;)

Nerevas April 11 2007 7:56 AM EDT

I had the chance to call someone a stupid-face, but I chose not to. Does that count? =p

Godpanda April 20 2007 9:47 AM EDT

RAM to tscm for something he did for DiabloSpawn.

lostling April 20 2007 12:40 PM EDT

:) the end of days loaned me his 2 SODs that he was using for an hour so that i could test something ^^

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] April 20 2007 1:24 PM EDT


Nov & NightStrike were playing nice last Tuesday. It was most impressive.

Godpanda April 20 2007 1:44 PM EDT

Thank you, Bast.

QBJohnnywas April 25 2007 6:55 AM EDT

Duck Knee/Flamingo Neck sent me some ex shots. Very nice. ;)

[RX3]Cotillion April 25 2007 9:02 AM EDT

Smallpau genorously lent his AoAC to the CB community to further our research on forging. Quite helpful if you ask me.

QBBast [Hidden Agenda] April 26 2007 11:00 PM EDT


Random individuals have been sending me gifts, with no warning or cause that I can discern. I sell them and use the money to fund my own gift-giving. I think we should all get credit for this.

Godpanda May 2 2007 6:28 PM EDT

Well, two days until the end of the contest.

Godpanda May 5 2007 10:57 AM EDT
