Hey guys! 

 

The team thought it would be a good idea to make a suggestion thread (kind of like the one for SOTW) so that you can tell us and other members what kind of contests you would like to see in the future! 

 

You can suggest any kind of contest including, but not limited to, seasonal contests, game contests, graphics and art contests, writing contests, official contests, and so on. Remember: This includes anything that you and other members would be interested in running too. 

 

It's always great to throw around ideas, and it can especially help the contest team if we're stuck in a rut. So start putting them out there and if we like them, we might just use them (and give you a shout out for the idea when we do)! 

 

Thank you!

Because it's his contest. He doesn't have to share if he doesn't want to :p Plus seldom is nice, we don't have an abundance of contests going on simultaneously that intimidate people from participating in one or all. 

Anyway, it's no different than if you started a contest on your own and continued it without opening it to other people, that is entirely your choice :p I think it shows dedication, I like it. It's the kind of consistent contribution we look for in promotions ;)

I don't think it's unreasonable to ask for Ivysaur to either expand the contest to be run by more people or to run it more frequently. Amd there were customization contests before he started doing them. :p

Refusing to do so if there's adequate demand would be more stubborn than dedicated, imo.

Not a contest suggestion exactly, but I'm interested in running (or at least helping out with) a Secret Santa/holiday gift exchange this year.

That would be awesome. I know there was a lot of interest in a real life gift exchange rather than just neopets stuff. 
We could always do separate ones too, for those who are uncomfortable with a real one.

You could definitely run it if you'd like to :p If not we'd almost definitely host one officially anyway and your help would be greatly appreciated (and needed lol)

Yeah, I didn't really think of it that way lol
I guess that's something that @Bulbasaur would need to address, if there was enough interest of course.

I might be interested in an award contest :) So we can make some awards for contests in the future, SOTW,.. and vote for the best?

I've never tried pixeling but it looks fun ^^

Yeah, anyone who participates in either a real life or Neopets gift exchange will obviously have to feel comfortable disclosing their address or username, so it might not be a bad idea to have staff involved for that reason.

 

I do have a little bit of experience with the gift exchanges on Reddit, which are a lot of fun, so I do have some idea how this should be set up in order to run smoothly (and ensure everyone who signs up gets something).

That's good, because I personally haven't got a clue.

OR since you got screwed over by the reddit exchanges so many times you're going to have everyone end their gifts to you and keep them all.

If you're going to plot to steal from everyone, at least come up with a a better plan.

Hahaha.

 

For the record, I only got screwed over once. My other matches spoiled me rotten. You're going to scare everyone away from participating in my gift exchange already!

I'm kidding, obviously. I wouldn't jeopardize my chance to send whoever I get matched with a basket full of spiders or something.

Considering it is a really fun game that is used on forums such as Galaxy Legion Forum I am inclined to feel she's not the only one.

We were thinking of having a "Random Contest" like on Neo and I feel like this would fit perfectly as a theme for that some time.

@Bone

 

I'm not opposed to allowing other people to run the Customization Contest. No one aside from @Keil has ever shown interest in hosting one.

I set it up with the intention of it running like the SoTW.

 

I'll be setting up another one soon though.

@Scot will be away for basic training for a few months, so someone else would have to organize/host it, but I think lots of people would love to do it again.

Yea I heard, it would be cool if someone else took over. I think it should be made semi-annual (depending on peoples schedules).
