I remember the contest from last year, which was hosted by the gracious Madame Giry before her departure. I just thought that... well, since a year has passed since last April that we give this another shot. Contests are always great community spirit boosters, and are tons of fun as well.

The rules are simple: create a biography for your detective. Remember it's quality, not quantity that counts. It can be any genre, just as long as it fits the timeframe of Sleuth (mid-1930's) and that it's gramatically correct and readable.

I need about three to four judges that are willing to give up a period of time one afternoon or evening to read the entries and judge them on a set of categories. This will be done in the in-game chatroom, or even in a special thread that will be guarded by a Moderator or Editor. We've done the latter last year, and it was pretty effective (although the page had to be refreshed constantly).

To enter your detective in the contest, PM Detective BioContest07 with your name by April 20th, 2007. More details will be forthcoming after that date passes. I do not need volunteers for judges as of yet. You cannot participate in the contest if you are a judge. Judge details will be forthcoming as well. Any requirements? You must be at least 20 days old to enter. I don't care whether you're subscribed or not.

I have no prize for a winner, but I'm working on it. Contributions would be great. So, let's get your applications in, and start working on those bios!

I would love to help judge, and the judges could use my apartment to hold their meetomgs, if you like.

One question - will the entire bio be taken into consideration? As in if I have AV hunt clues in it, will that count against me?

I wouldn't think it would count against you, especially if you keep it separated.

Hi guys, I'm a newbie. I just found out about playsleuth yesterday. I really want to join the contest because I don't have a credit card to subscribe.

How can I PM Detective BioContest07 and how do I submit my bio? I haven't written anything yet - and I'm hoping I'll be able to write one before the deadline passes (it was extended until the 25th, right?).

Thanks.
