• Year One Contest Update!


    Some of you may have forgotten. Some of you may be new and never knew in the first place. But Iím sure some of you remembered. Weíre in the middle of a big contest. Hereís the info if you need a refresher, or need it for the first time.

    But now, letís make things interesting. We all know that you get more chances to win based on things you do here on the site. And you know you can see the total number of chances that specific users have next to their names on the forums. But, Iím going to save you the trouble. Hereís our current top 20, with their number of points for the contest (as of last Friday).

    Editor's Note: Remember that these are the number of chances you have, how many tickets you have in the bucket, so to speak. Someone with lower chances still has a shot at winning something - you simply increase your odds the more participation you have

    It looks like Crestfallen might be running away with #1, and the grand prize (first pick of the prize gravity feeds). Then we have pk2317 and pishposh holding down #2 and #3. Even if they jockey around before the contestís end, they may be out of reach from the rest of the field. And then we have 90 points separating #14-20. Remember, the user with the most points is the only one guaranteed a prize. The rest of the users only get that many chances to win prizes 2-5. So keep up posting on the forums, uploading images to our database, or writing a blog to increase your number of chances. Speaking of writing blogs, we now have a weekly time slot designated just for user blog entries. We can upload blogs at other times during the week if we are aware we may have a gap in content. So the more you write, the more chances you get to win the contest, and if we promote your article to the front page, you get even MORE chances to win. This has been your contest update. Good luck, and roll on!

      So where is Crestfallen getting all of his or her points? Mad contributing? I'd like a pie chart, please!

      Remember these chances are like tickets in the 50/50 bucket. Someone with fewer chances could still win big.

      It is fun, but serious props to the top 3. I know they have been working on the wiki like mad. I have had personal life take away my time, but get ready because once I get some AOU boxes open (buying 2 boxes at 10am tomorrow), I will be writing a lot. Plus I will have two tourney reports out by the end of the weekend, (possibly 3) Two rainbow drafts and one constructed Marvel Tourney.

      This contest is a brilliant idea. Awesome that I'm in the Top 20.

      I used to do a lot of writing for various things back in the day. I miss it a lot actually, but life has gotten busy and time isn't as free as it used to be.

      This contest is providing incentive though...I recently had an epic game of DM I'd love to turn into a blog post. Hopefully I'll get to it soon before it fades from memory...

      Thanks TRP team for all the hard work you do!

      I'm only on about 60 chances atm, having only recently joined so I know my chances of winning are incredibly slim, but even so. What a great competition. Fantastic to see a site rewarding an active community. Speaks volumes of those running this place and the community as well!
