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.)

Well, Aknas, there is a prize mentioned in Huglover's opening post: a 1 month subscription. Also, the prize is given on monthly basis. I guess she can also offer a...hug to the winner, since she's such a huglover...hehe.

Seems like there is more than one who needs to read the original post ;-)
First winner will be announced the Feb-20 th.
- so the judges will have about 4 attempts each for voting... ;-)
But, it's correct, the votes for the first week need to be arrived at about the end of this month... ;-)

On question, yoyofoshow seemed to be wanting to have the honor of being among the judges, rather than the possibility of winning. He is therefore added to the list of judges, due to one vote.

Also, for the first week, only one nominee have been added to the contest, and the current state show that it will be easy to get "your candidate" to end up as a winner.

As a sign of my true dictatorical skills, the decicion is made that after a winner is chosen, all the other nominee will remain on the list, with their votes unchanged, while the winner will have his amount of votes removed, and need to get a new nomination/vote in order to re-enter the list. This way I hope to encourage more people to enter the stage, because there will be a possibility to win in the long run.

With this post I also hope that it will be easier for the judges to find where to send their votes, as I hope for more votes, and more nominees.

Well...sorry to dissapoint you, yoyo, but actually there is no vote, as I am not a contestant. I can handle my subscription so it would be unfair for me to compete against people who actually need one, or at least want one. I RP only for pleasure and as I said in my [author's note] inside the thread, I have only joined it in order to keep it active so people who want to run in this contest could have something to work on. Of course, any contestant can also choose another thread or open his/her own.

So for now you only have 2 competitors to choose from: red_rose and Abdur...
