AnimeShinbun September 2012 Contests

Hi everyone! Hope things have been going well for all of you. =)
The format of contests last month seemed to work rather well overall, so we'll be repeating that again this month. We'll be putting the winners up here sometime my time later today (seeing as it's just gone midnight here in Australia for me right now ^^;; ), and sending them direct messages just to make sure they don't miss it.

Remember, 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. Don't forget also to sign up for HAVA Labs ( where you can get early access to the new N4G, where you'll see some of the things in the works for AnimeShinbun.

When you visit AnimeShinbun at least once during every 24 hour period during September, 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 September 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 September! 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 September will be eligible. The winner will be chosen by myself and Lavalamp. 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!

How many stories can you submit? Every news story you submit on AnimeShinbun during the month of September will get you 1 entry, and we'll be picking 2 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.

I can't believe it's already September. I also can't believe the FUNimation Roku channel isn't out yet...

Archaic2119d ago

In this industry, I think we've all learnt to treat any announced release date like it could be a Duke Nukem Forever release date.

SynGamer2119d ago

So least we got confirmation last week that it was in QA with Roku. I created a thread over on the FUNi forums and people are quickly losing patience. It pretty much comes down to the fact that we've had no official word from FUNi at all. It's the third most viewed thread in General Discussion and not a single official response.

All we want to know is the status; "slight delay folks, sorry. We're hoping to get it through QA as quickly as possible".

Oh well, it'll be released soon enough if QA goes well.

Winners are up, notifications have gone out. Sorry for the form letters there guys. ^^;;

Thankonomics! And congrats to the other winners as well.

Lavalamp2113d ago

Awesome month, guys! I'm seeing tons of new sources I had no idea were out there. Congratulations everyone! Now let's be sure to rock September as well!
