Hi everyone! You all know that I really enjoy the contest. I want to encourage others also. I've been thinking about this idea for a time now.
How about a Grand Prize Contest specifically for those players that have never won a Grand Prize before. Only those that have never taken a Grand Prize would be eligible to win.
Players that have won a Grand Prize will not be left out. Proletariat can distribute a lesser prize using your discretion to all those willing to participate. Grand Prize Winners will help by answering questions like "How did you do that?", "How do I copy and paste?","What program did you use for that?" Sharing specific information to help others. I believe many find the behind the scenes creativity process interesting. My hope is that others could learn more to help them create entries for future contest and just have fun.
Here is the part where I try to sell the idea.
- Many players will be excited at a chance for Grand Prize knowing they are not competing with previous winners.
- Grand Prize winners should be content with recognition and a smaller reward like Supplies/DNA, small coins, etc.
- Forums is set up for chat. With questions & answers players that may never chat with each other will do so and build a stronger community.
- Badges are already in place to distinguish players.
- Everyone entering will have an opportunity to learn more about how to create a great entry regardless of the format.
Thanks for considering my idea.
(I want to edit & add my intent was for a single contest, thx.)
