Az: Years ago, this time of year, I used to do contests/events and after a while interest seemed to dry up. I'd like to see what everyone thinks of doing a contest and giveaway event. The prize I'm thinking of is an 8"x10" glossy print of the Hera signed by myself and the XO to the winner of the contest.

As for the contest, as this is a writing sim, in the past we've normally used an online random word generator to generate 5-6 words per user and they have to use all but one of them in a mission post, written either joint or single, sometime in the contest window (normally 30 days). Voting then takes place on which of the contest entries is the best and the winner gets the veritable 'chicken dinner,' as it were. ^_^

So... My question is, is everyone up for this? If there's support for it, I'll start the ball rolling. If not, then I'll drop the subject and forget about it. Also, if anyone has ideas for variations on the contest or the prize, please add them as well.



Monoui: I am always a fan of your writing challenges. Hell, I don't even need a reward, sign me up!

Crysta: Writing challenges are fun!

Allison: One simm I was on did writing challenges. The situations were always fun. No prizes except for the hilarity and craziness of some of the stories. So I'm up for it even without the prize.

Az: Well, that's 3 of you. With myself and the XO, that's 5 of us in for it and 4 unknowns out of 9 people. I guess now we just need a random word generator. Does anyone have a recommendation for one? If not, I'll use one that might pop out some pretty hard ones. ^_^

Az: it's a bit after the holidays, but I'm going to go ahead and start this. The rules are listed above. Random words will be listed soon. If this goes well, the writing challenge after this will be for ridiculous situations. ^_^

Griff(Vaemyn): Ah, flamethrowers. Every scientist's best friend. This will be fun.

Dylan: Yep, I'm in too.

Az: I'm extending the deadline through to April first. Hopefully with upcoming repairs and the like, we can get some personal posts in that have a few good words in them. ^_^

Elle: Late to the party but definitely going to work on this. Sounds like fun.
This is my introductory post - but used all the words (I think).

Az: as we've only had one entry and a contest is sad with only one entry, I'm extending the deadline again. I'm also adding in our newest member.

Az: As our one entry has left the sim from inactivity, i'm extending this yet again... if we don't get at least 3 entries during the month of May, I'm cancelling this and burning the glossy...

Thex: Put up my entry.

Sabrina: Sure, I'm in.

Vaemyn: I got drunk and did a thing.

Az: Well, that's 3 entries. Now we as a crew need to vote on a winner. And I still need to figure out if I can afford to print, send a glossy of the Hera to the XO to be signed and then send it on to the winner. I had honestly hoped for more entries. Next time, we'll be doing scenarios and the deadline will be by the end of the mission.

So for the vote!

Az: voting will close shortly! Hurry before the next writing challenge is put up! You have until noon EST Monday!

Az: OK! Voting is closed! It's officially a three way tie! You all win!As such, I'll be preparing a fresh 4k render of the refit USS Hera and signing it. I'll only be sending out a digital copy though since 2 of you live on the other side of a rather large pond.

SP- grats everybody!

Az: and here's the image! enjoy!
