AnimeShinbun November 2012 Contests

Yes, it's that time of the month again. Not long to go until Christmas now, is it? We'll be slightly mixing things up this month in the lead-up to the holiday season. ;) As for October's prize winners, those will go up in the next couple of days, along with ticket notifications just in case people aren't checking the blog.

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

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 November 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!

How many stories can you submit? Every news story you submit on AnimeShinbun during the month of November 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!

CHRISTMAS CONTEST BRAINSTORMING: This replaces the usual Best User Blog contest for this month. What we're looking for are suggestions from all of you for the kinds of contests you'd like to see us run this year. Last year featured a 12 Days of Christmas trivia contest, where I asked questions ranging from the fairly simple to Google, to the outright obscure. As with the normal blog contest, there's no limit to how many entries you can have here, each separate suggestion you make will count as an entry. You can post suggestions as comments to this blog, or write your own blogs if you've got a lot you'd like to say (and we'll accept comments and further suggestions on those blogs as entries too). The winner will be chosen by myself and Lavalamp, and we'll be looking for contest ideas which will get as many people in the AnimeShinbun community involved as possible.

Prize: 1 winner - 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 liked the 12 Days of Christmas trivia contest, so long as a person can only win...twice perhaps?

Archaic1998d ago

I'd probably have to combine that with making the questions or riddles be a lot easier, if we did do that. Simply because we had several questions last year where the winner was the only person who submitted a correct answer, and they did that on a couple of questions.

SynGamer1998d ago (Edited 1998d ago )

I'll fully admit that a lot of those questions simply stumped me. I'm a casual otaku...if such a thing can exist.

Archaic1998d ago

I'll be honest....if I hadn't already known the answers to several of those questions, it would have taken me a quite a bit of time on Google to find the right answers. ^^;;; I don't want to make it quite that difficult this time around.

futurefrog1998d ago

12 day of christmas was fun :)
Look forward to the winers of OCtober

Archaic1998d ago

You would say that, wouldn't you. You actually got questions right. ;p

koga881997d ago

Hm, I would think that the 12 days of Christmas was nice, most of the prizes were pretty small but it gave more people a chance to win and spread the prizes out well amongst the entries, though I won most of em in the end at least four or five others were able to get at least one goodie. It'd be better that way to spread the love around to make sure at least everyone has a shot at winning more than once.

ReconHope1997d ago

Good luck to everyone while at the same time i hope you all lose.

Archaic1994d ago

All October prize winners have been announced.

tayz1994d ago
