Interest in Old Favorite Games/Contests?

It's about the right time of year for a couple of contests that have been popular in past years, and I'm wondering if there is interest in reviving them.

1. Are people interested in repeating the Annual Sleuth Biography Contest? (People are encouraged to come up with an original biography for their character(s), and then are judged.)

2. Are people interested in the Sleuth Beauty Pageant? (This is a take-off on the Miss Universe pageant, and people's avatars are critiqued.)

3. Are people interested in reviving the Annual March Madness Tournament? (People nominate a total of 64 contestants, who are seeded numbers 1 to 16. The community is then encouraged to "stump" (endorse) candidates of their choosing, and votes are gathered over a number of rounds. Eventually, an overall winner is chosen. This is a take-off of the U.S. NCAA college basketball tournament.)

4. Are people interested in reviving the Pub Quiz, perhaps on a weekly basis? (Questions on a particular subject are posed. People post their answers, and after a specified time, the answers are listed. This was a daily institution for a number of years around here.)

Which of these things are people interested in doing? Are there other ideas/contests that you would like to do? Please let us know what you think.

Thank you!! ;-)

I've never really been into popularity contests of any kind, but quizzes and bio contests sound good.

All of the above sound interesting :)

Searching through old threads did throw up some enjoyable reads!

Some interesting ideas here, yes :)

What about a contest where we all pretend to be fictional detectives ... ?

I like the idea of a quiz.
My inner Hermione is a sucker for answering questions - the harder, the better.
But Melanie's idea sounds cool as well. I'd like to hear more on it.

I was attempting to be ironic :o) Although there might be a nugget of an idea within it.

My mind actually created a few possibilities, with "real" fictional detectives, like... Holmes, Poirot, Marple, Marlowe and the sorts. :-)

There's a new Pub Quiz up in the Game Room. If you're into trivia stuff, you might want to check it out. ;-)

Also, Melanie and Francesca, tell us more about this fictional detective contest. What kind of contest would you do? Would it be an actual game, or some kind of a writing contest? Can you give us some more details, please?? Thanks!! ;-D

I just hopped in on Melanie's idea.
But some writing contest/roleplay contest would be cool.
