AnimeShinbun August 2012 Contests

Hey everyone!

We've had some good response to the contests Cat put up in July, so rather than just returning to our old standard format, we're going to be incorporating a few of those ideas into our contests for this month, with the aim of continuing the good run of activity we've been seeing recently.

When you visit AnimeShinbun at least once during every 24 hour period during August, you'll gain an entry into our Loyal Reader Lottery! If you want to keep track you can follow along with your Daily Visit score*, so if you want to make sure you've logged in during a 24 hour period check this score on your profile!
* (The Daily Visit score displayed on your profile can occasionally be a little inaccurate. When we actually pick the lotto winners, we pull the data from a more accurate list. So for those of you visiting every day diligently but not triggering the Daily Visit score reward, don't stress out!)

Prize: 1 winner - a $50 Amazon Gift Card each!

Pretty much self-explanatory this one. Each and every comment you make on AnimeShinbun (regardless of if that's in a news story or blog) during the month of August will net you an entry in this competition. And to make things interesting...we'll give you entries for every tip you contribute as well! So no excuses for not contributing those extra stories now when you hit your news submission limit. ;)

Prize: 1 winner - a $50 Amazon Gift Card each!

You must post a User Blog in the month of August! There's no limit to how many wonderful User Blogs you can write and enter, anything you author here on AnimeShinbun during the month of August will be eligible. The winner will be chosen by myself and Cat. What we'll be looking for is an interesting blog that sparks off conversation and interest amongst other users.

Prize: 1 winner - a $50 Amazon Gift Card each!

Instead of just taking the top 2 contributors as we did last month, we'll be having something a little more like our usual contributor contest again. Every news story you submit on AnimeShinbun during the month of August will get you 1 entry, and we'll be picking 3 winners at random from those entries.

Prize: 2 winners - a $50 Amazon Gift Card each!

With all of our contests, you'll be disqualified if you pick up a restriction of any kind during the contest period. Comments with negative labels (Trolling, Off Topic, etc.), unresolved reported stories, etc, will not count to any competition.
In the interests of fairness, each entrant will only be eligible to win one prize per month. If your name comes up for multiple prizes, then we'll be awarding you the highest value one and redrawing the others.
Prize values for the Amazon gift cards being given away this month will be announced sometime in the next couple of days, and no later than August 5th.

If you've got any comments you'd like to make about the contests this month or last, or about anything else related to AnimeShinbun, please feel free to use this blog. We welcome all feedback.

Archaic-sama, you have returned!!!!

Archaic2090d ago

I have been here for the last 4 weeks or so you know. ;p

tayz2089d ago


oh ya i did know, but I just wanted to point it out for those that did not ^_^'

Good to see you back Archaic, though it is worth noting that under the Best User Blog contest it currently says the blog has to be posted in the month of July a few times so may need to fix that up.

Archaic2090d ago

Whoops, thanks for bringing that to my attention. Must have copy/pasted Cat's from last month when I put that in there, instead of the version I'd written for this month. ^^;;;

koga882089d ago

One more quick fix haha, under the contributor contest it says 2 winners now for the gift card thing while the description says 3 winners at random. Change either way you see fit.
