Last Blender Standing ! (in Contests)


AdminG Beee May 30 2008 10:23 AM EDT

Contest is open only to 10 people. The first 10 that reply to this thread on or after 12:00 server time (~2hrs from now) will be included.
If the contest is a success then I'll run another one and exclude the first 10 participants.

The contest is a variation of sorts on a contest idea sent to me by OB.

Here's the deal.
The 10 people entered into the contest are expected to send me (via Chatmail) a post of any sort, which I will then include in a locked thread for all to see. It's a chance for each individual in the contest to impress us with their wit, wisdom, knowledge - anything at all. Obviously the PG rules have to be respected. No images or HTML is allowed as it won't come through properly on CM. Also, I don't want to do anything other than cut and paste your text from my CM into a CB thread :p

As soon as I have the 10 entries I'll post in a locked thread and make a poll for the community to decide who the loser is. Yep, that's right - the loser !!

Loser will be eliminated and the 9 remaining folks will then send me another email in which they can again cover any topic - but this is where the fun kicks in because they can also start to discuss the other contestants entries.

Again I'll post and make a poll until we're down to the last Blender standing.

Unpleasantness is a possibility, but not inevitable. If another contestant thinks he can win popularity or erode yours by attacking what you say, he is free to do so and I will not protect you, though you may retaliate. This does not mean a flame fest, because an obnoxious flamer, or one who does it badly may see his insults backfire and cost him popularity, resulting in his being thrown out. In short though, if you don't want to risk being insulted publicly, you probably shouldn't apply.

The polls will only last for 24hrs so the contest will run for approx 10 days duh ! but I'll be sure to make it worthwhile to win the prize. Don't apply if you're not going to be able to reply each of the next 10 days otherwise you're just denying someone else a fair shot at taking part.


Edit: Updated the method for the 10 contestants, once selected, to send me entries - CM only please.

Contest winner can choose any two items + $500k CB from AdminBeee

Don't ask NW. I'm not telling you :p

I'll give it a shot, but I'm not clear on what the post is supposed to be.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 30 2008 12:00 PM EDT

Edicinnej May 30 2008 12:12 PM EDT

Can I try?

IndependenZ May 30 2008 12:23 PM EDT

I'd like to give this a go, but when does it exactly start? I mean, when are we supposed to chatmail a post to you? This evening, tomorrow, from Monday on?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 30 2008 12:56 PM EDT

In!

Tyriel [123456789] May 30 2008 12:59 PM EDT

I wanna fail at this, too!

AdminNightStrike May 30 2008 1:02 PM EDT

Looks like I missed the 12:00 thing...

CM me your post. Anything you want, something that you think people are going to consider more interesting, funny, abstract or whatever than the others... As soon as I have the 10 I'll create a locked post and make a poll.

AdminNightStrike May 30 2008 1:44 PM EDT

Any suggestions on length?

Edicinnej May 30 2008 1:52 PM EDT

TLDR

AdminG Beee May 30 2008 2:17 PM EDT

Contest winner can choose any two items + $500k CB from AdminBeee

Don't ask NW. I'm not telling you :p

QBsutekh137 May 30 2008 2:19 PM EDT

So someone could take both mage shields and make a cool 20 million off this? Damn, I should have been reading forums more!

AdminG Beee May 30 2008 2:20 PM EDT

Oops, didn't notice the 2nd one.

Aherm, there's only 1 there Sut. You must be seeing things ;)

QBsutekh137 May 30 2008 2:25 PM EDT

So, still a 10 million dollar contest? Dang, I am sad I missed out!

I'll have to very careful with my voting with that much on the line -- good luck to everyone!

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] May 30 2008 2:27 PM EDT

I'd totally give up my spot for Sut... I'd rather read his drivel than write mine...

QBsutekh137 May 30 2008 2:53 PM EDT

Heh, that's OK, I am not sure I could pay attention for the ten days anyway, especially with having plans both upcoming weekends... Would rather relax and read what others have to say!

{cb1}Linguala May 30 2008 2:54 PM EDT

not fair, I was at work and didn't even get the chance
*sob*

QBOddBird May 30 2008 4:15 PM EDT

<3 to you, Beee! :D I'm going to really enjoy watching this one!

AdminG Beee May 30 2008 7:24 PM EDT

I've not received all the input from everyone, which isn't a problem, but I'm off to bed now. I'll post the thread and poll as soon as I've got the last of the entries.

Prolly fair to put a deadline on it which will be 12:00 server time tomorrow. I'll post before then if I have all the entries though.

People still due me some input are:
novice
JS
NightStrike
Angel of Death

AdminG Beee May 31 2008 12:08 PM EDT

Nightstrike missed the deadline for entries (sorry dude) so there's one space.

First person to reply on this thread gets that space providing they can then CM me their post within the next few mins - I want to get this off and running now.

QBOddBird May 31 2008 12:19 PM EDT

WOOT

QBOddBird May 31 2008 12:26 PM EDT

Just fired you a post off. Enjoy.

Wizard'sFirstRule June 9 2008 12:41 AM EDT

AdminBeeee is now retired. What happens now?

QBOddBird June 9 2008 12:43 AM EDT

He's an admin, I expect that means at some point he'll unretire himself. ;'P
