Hmm... could always do something like we did in festivals past. ^^ Like Songhue said, pick a category like "best wings" or "fiercest" and get members to vote on it type thing in a poll. First, second and third place get something.

Meh, just a thought. XD I'm horrible at suggesting contests. Good ideas so far though! I'm sure Tigs and Foxx will come up with something brilliant. ^^

Well paint me polka-spotted and call me a goober. Been throwin out Festival type contest ideas - oi! (this wouldn't have been realized if not for the help of a very good friend)

As for contests here, like the RP contest or guess the name one, legit ideas would be...

Similar to the RP contest we have something entirely different as well. You're given a name and an image and placed in a certain setting (say it has to start in a valley somewhere) and you write up an 'opening' RP post to show the basic idea you get of the serian. The one that best matches what Foxx knows of said serian would get to either A) keep said serian, or B) in the case of a tie or some such, proceed to a tie breaker such as the typical RP contest.

Alternatively you can be shown an image and have to guess the alter or parentage - although that would mean taking down such info so people can't cheat.

Or you can have a contest to where you have to offer a gift - a drawing, a story, a joke, ect. Whichever gift is the most appealing catches the serian's interest and makes 'em wanna learn more.

Ooooor you can do it somewhat similarly to the festival - adoptor's page contests and have it so that the serian wants someone with _____ quality and so you enter (via the forum) either yourself or a serian, depending, into the test of _____ quality and whoever wins that (kind of like a raffel, in a way) gets to have the serian go home with them.

Or a competition where everyone has to write up a little 'history' for the serian and the one that seems to have the best understanding gets them.

Or one where it's a 'guess the word' thing - say, there's one Specific word that either the serian's thinking of or Really describes the serian (nothing TOO obvious, you'd have to know 'em well, but nothing impossible like you'd have to know 'em for a year first) and the one to guess the secret word wins.

Or a 'find the serian' type thing - like where's waldo, maybe? Ionno! *shot*

Or a 'design a home' contest thing, that would be a lot like house hunting - which new 'house' do you like best?

Or there's always the old contest of "What makes you think you should get this serian?" thing - like applying for a job, in a way.

Ect., ect., ect...

*cackles* where's waldo! Tee!

Met an australian guy at a renaissance faire, and of COURSE we got talking about "where's waldo" .. but he knew it as "Where's Wally". that's what it's called in australia, come to find out ^_^

just a useful tidbit i thought everyone should know.... :P


I DO like that idea, though... search the forums to find a serian..?
