Ladies and gentlemen! I am proud to present to you a new contest!

This contest will reward you for benefiting the role-playing stage. How is that going to happen, you may ask? Well, let me tell you! First, be active in posting. Second, post with good grammar. Finally, post an interesting storyline.

At the end of each month (first time at Feb-20-2009), a one-month gift subscription to Sleuth Noir will be rewarded to the player that has contributed the most. The winner will be decided by the votes of six judges: Brietkat, David Adams, Makensie Brewer, Violet Parr, Clift Garrett and Acemaster. (Special thanks to Violet Parr for judge suggestions in November-2008!)

Each week, each of the judges will pick the one player whom they think have benefited the stage the most that week. At the 20.th in the month, the votes will be counted, revealing a winner.

The judges will send their picks to a detective named "Gossip Center", who will also display current standings for each week. Check in to see how you are doing! ;-)

There are some limitations, though. What is a contest without rules, right? ;-)

*Neither the judges nor judges second characters can be voted for.
......(This also includes me, as I am taking care of finances.)
*If you have won, you cannot win again until three more characters have won.
*If you have not won before, you will automatically receive 3 votes as a bonus.

We can't check every detail, but we hope to have an honor system. For instance, if you have won, please tell us you second characters to make it fair for other characters. If someone is caught "cheating", a proper penalty will be placed.

This is part of the Revive the Stage program. We do hope you enjoy it, and congratulations to all the winners! ;-)

(Thanks to Acemaster for helping me with proof reading. The day is chosen in remembrance of his birthday. The contest is planned to last 1 year, unless it's so successful it will be extended.)

WOW! Either we have some new people with a LOT of initiative and writing skills, or this was a GREAT idea. Not only do we have a new player on the stage (great entry ROSE!!!), but we have TWO new threads up!!!!!! (Makes my morning much nicer--can forgo that newspaper til after I read these!)

So thank you ALL!!! Keep up the terrific work (you didn't think i was going to go with such a trite expression as 'good work' did you?--It's MUCH better than good!)! And keep it coming!!!

Seems like my lack of english language skills have tricked me, so that I did not really understand what I was saying.... :-(

While I want to keep up with the contest, I guess it might be useful to try to tell what I wanted to say... - I wanted it to be a contest to help inspire people to join the stage, and contribute there. I did not intend to say I wanted to bring to life something that already had started to live, and I did not intend to indicate that there were some kind of death at the stage.
What I wanted to was to add some water as to make it grow, and we all know that you cannot get anything to grow, unless it's alive first place.

I am sorry for whoever I have offended, and I ask forgiveness for this, and I do hope that this clarification reveals my real plan or idea, and will help to easen the offence that I may have made.

I will ask that this thread be deleted in a couple of days, and that I then might repost it in a better way - somewhere useful. I am thinking about doing it as a reply to some of the sticky threads at the stage, but I am open to suggestions. :-)

Hug--Your English is fine. And the idea seems to be working! For the moment, don't sweat the small stuff and enjoy your coffee as you read what they've put up. The entries for this week are entertaining!

Well...it appeares to me that you've got quite a fat jury table and you're kinda' low on contestants. Maybe you should consider the idea of poking some people in the ribs in a more private manner in order to push them on the stage. I'm saying this becouse I used to play this game about a year ago, for only 2 months and in all that time I didn't click once on this forum section, yet now I find it to be quite entertaining.

I do agree though that this kind of approach may imply more effort and basically the principle would be to help the ones that help themselves, but if you really want the stage more populated I think my sugesstion could be a constructive approach.

[some people have asked to have this moved to game room, but I'll just sticky it here. That should set it apart, and take it out of the realsm of having to stay in character. good luck y'all]

May I ask. Since this is a contest, what are the prizes for winning? I mean, it aint a contest if there is no prize to be won, right? :D
