Regarding an upcoming contest (in Contests)

Goodfish March 5 2009 1:36 AM EST


My brother and I have been talking a lot over the past few months about the best way to give back to CB for all the great years you've all given us. After the last few supportership contests went so well, we thought we needed to run a contest of our own.

Originally, we wanted to do a contest exclusively for new players, with a number of supporterships and equipment sets up for grabs. However, we've decided that we want as much community involvement as possible and we have begun creating the framework for what I would likely consider the largest-scale contest in the history of CB. Here are a few details:
  • There will be no entrance fee!
  • That said, the prizes won't be pathetic- there is currently (although of course subject to change) over 40M in prizes.
  • Everybody who participates will win a prize!
  • The contest will start June 1st and take up a large part of the summer.

    So what's this post about, even? We want to start generating some interest in the community. Make sure your summer is clear, or at least make sure you have access to a computer as often as possible! We're hoping to have at least 80 participants in this contest.

    Also, while I certainly won't demand it from anybody, we would also appreciate it if some users donated cash or items (rares only, of course). They do not need to be sent now; if you're interested in being a contributor to the contest, please just chatmail my brother or me. Contributing to the contest will in no way render you unable to participate- we just want as big of a prize pool as possible. No CBD donation is too small.

    So thank you, CB, and I wish you a fair spring... and a very competitive summer!

    I will give you my full support for this contest and half of my available money at the start of the contest will be donated to this cause. Good Luck.

    What's this about a contest now?

    Bump in the sake of giving away 40M+. ;)

    I should also say, please don't donate anything without a chatmail attached. I want to be able to generate a list of all the kind souls who have donated (time, money, or items) to the contest.

    Start begging your bosses and families to give you the whole summer off- you're going to need it!

    What, did one of my character names give it away? ^_^
