As some of you may have seen earlier, I posted a status update wanting to gauge the popularity of a possible Halloween Costume Contest for our members. I thought, it would probably be best served in a forum post than in statuses seeing as statuses get bumped down quite quickly and a lot of people wouldn't read it anyway.
So without further ado, who wants one?
Prizes will be discussed here in the thread once we come up with some ideas of what to offer. If you wish to donate ANYTHING to the competition (providing we get enough people wanting to do it), please either post here, or PM me if you wish to remain anonymous.
I'll get the ball rolling and provide a free attic shell with 10mill (in ETS form) pre-loaded on it. The person who wins it may use it for their own benefit OR feel free to resell it. Up to you.
Once we have a good list of prizes sorted out, I shall divide them up (relatively evenly) amongst the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places for people to aim for. There will be a special prize for a random entry that will be chosen by the random number generator on Random.org. The way this works is, each entrant will be assigned a number from 1 to however many total entries we get in order of submission times (Say you enter your photo first to me after entries open, you will receive the number 1 and so on and so forth). This range then gets inputted into the number generator and will spit out a random number. The person who's number comes up, will win the special prize. The staff will be asked to choose one entry of the lot as their favourite, these entries will receive a random prize too.
I will keep this thread open until next Friday, 18th October to gauge interest and pool some prizes. Providing we get a decent amount of interest (I'm sure we will), I will then start the entry period, which will run from the 18th October until the 1st November (so people who go trick or treating can submit their entries up until just after All Hallows Eve (I wanna see some pics of you out and about if this is the case).
ENTRIES ARE OPEN!!!
*entries are to be sent in to myself by 1st November, 11:59PM NST. No entries will be accepted after this time*
Bonus prizes will be handed out at random to people who feature something about Neocodex in their photo. This can be anything you think of (that is not detrimental to the site of course, NOTHING illegal either please, entrants will be DQ'ed/possibly reprimanded if they wish to test the waters with this).
There will be a poll up from Saturday, 2nd November @ 12:00am NST and you guys can vote on your favourites until Wednesday, 6th November, 12:00am NST. Prizes will be awarded after the topic/poll is closed.
