AnimeShinbun October 2012 Contests

Hello again everyone! It's that time once again. We haven't had any complaints about this new contest format, so I think we'll be sticking with it for a while yet. Though, we'll have to figure out a good way to mix things up for Christmas, won't we? ;) We'll be putting the winners up sometime in the next 48 hours or so, and tickets will be sent out to all winners when that's done to make sure they don't miss that.

Remember, if you've got any comments you'd like to make about the format of these contests, or about anything else related to AnimeShinbun, please feel free to use this blog. We welcome all feedback. I'd especially like to hear some of your ideas for what we should do this Christmas, so please post those up if you've got them. Don't forget also to sign up for HAVA Labs ( where you can get early access to the new N4G, and catch some of the things in the works for AnimeShinbun.

When you visit AnimeShinbun at least once during every 24 hour period during October, 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 October 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 October! 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 October 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.

Winners up, notifications have gone out. Even if you've won a prize before, please reconfirm your email in reply to that notification. Had a situation with a prize on another site where someone notified me of a change of address after their prize had already been sent, so I'm just being overly cautious. ^^;;

When all looked wrong in this world of sin, one man triumphants over evil and shows what is good! That is Archiac-sama, the fearless leader of this Shinbun of Anime and a Garden full of Bulba!!! WOSHO!!!!

*glows...Super Saiyan style*
