Can I start a Weekly contest?
Hey Staff of NL,

Hey guys, I was wondering, with you're permission, if I could start a
weekly contest here at NL. The idea is from Smosh and it is a signiture
making contest which gets judged by forum members based on humor to
the assigned theme. At Smosh, it's called SOTW (Smosher of the week)
but if we had it here, I was trying to think of a name similar to it. Like
LOTW (Lounger of the week) or HOTW(Hokage of the week) or even NOTW
(Ninja of the week).

The rules would be as followed:

1. You must have at least 50 posts to enter and vote.
2. Your signature must not be pre-made.
3. Your signature must follow the assigned theme.
4. Your signature must be your own work. If you are asked to prove the
authenticity of your entry, you must do so.
5. Your signature must include your name in some way, shape, or form.
6. Your signature must be of a reasonable size (rectangular in shape with
a maximum width of 555px and a maximum height 400px.) If you are
asked to resize your signature, you must do so.
7. You may only post one entry in one post, and any further changes
to your entry must be posted in replacement of your original entry.
All changes made to any post other than your original entry post will be
8. You may not vote for yourself in the voting thread.
9. If you are caught voting multiple times in the voting thread, you will
receive a one-week suspension from the ( )OTW (including voting).
10. If you are proven guilty of stealing a signature, you will receive a one-
week suspension from ( )OTW. If you are caught two more times following
the first, you're banned indefinitely from ( )OTW.

Failure to adhere to any of these rules will result in the disqualification of
your entry

The submission time would be a 4.5 day period (Time and date depending)
The voting time would be from 2.5 (Time and date depending)
Times and dates are depending based on if this gets approved.
The winner of each ( )OTW will be posted in the next ( )OTW submission
thread. For each week, a small signature trophy will be given to the winner to
place in his/her signature and show off. Much similar to this.>>>Smosh symbol will be replace with a NL.
( )OTW #( )will be based on which one it is.
Year-The year.

I hope you guys like this idea. It'll add something nice the forum. ^^

Message towards the staff: If this is approved, which section should it be in,
chit chat, or graphics?

Sincerely, Hokage4354

Re: Can I start a Weekly contest?
My only question is are you aloud to put your name in the sig or does it have to be blank?

Re: Can I start a Weekly contest?
Your username MUST be in the signature in some shape or form.

If you want to start weekly contest you can do that in the contest section.. i dont think you need a mod or admin approval to do that.

You don't, lol

Re: Can I start a Weekly contest?

O wait, no I was asking more of like, for each one, a mod stickies it, and it would
be more official. Like an Official weekly contest.

EDIT: Official as in, it is a NL thing that is like, official.

As, if somebody asked you, "do you have any contests at NL"
somebody could answer " We have many members making contests
but our main official's are the annual NL awards and the ( )OTW."

Kinda....get it....?

We had something like that already called Sig Of The Week. It's some where in the graphics section. You can revive it if you like, or make a new one.

Re: Can I start a Weekly contest?

Re: Can I start a Weekly contest?
I was hoping for a newer name.
xD "eww smosh"

So, which you guys think?

Re: Can I start a Weekly contest?
I say stay with the traditional and obvious choice: Sig Of The Week.

Hokage4354 06-11-2008 10:39 PM

Re: Can I start a Weekly contest?
Thank you very much Shino.

I'd say this thread is done.

Re: Can I start a Weekly contest?
Well, as for the NL awards and such, that's a different kind of official contest. NL Awards is a forum-wide contest, whereas a GFX contest would solely be involved with one particular sub-forum and held between our, sadly, quite small league of active GFXers. So making it akin to the NL Awards would be a bit much.

We do, however, as Shino said, have a Sig of the Week. It just so happens that the GFX section is so horribly inactive that it's completely dead. =P

As all questions have been resolved here, this thread is closed.
