AnimeShinbun 2012 Holiday Season Contests

Archaic | 1164d ago
User blog

Hi everyone!

I've been out of the state for the past week, so thanks for your patience while I got everything here together. It's probably a bit too early for people to already be on their holiday breaks, but I hope you're at least having fun doing all the shopping required in advance of the feasting and partying. ;)

'tis the season for giving, so we're going to be giving out plenty of prizes here on AnimeShinbun for the holidays. We got a bit of feedback everyone, and it seems that you did overall like the format we ran with last year with the 12 Days. Having said that, we don't want to do the exact same thing every year, that'd just be boring, so we're going to spice it up a little.

Starting December 12th (00:00 GMT time, find your local time here - ), I'll be posting a new blog each day with a set of challenges. While each day will be different, every day will have at least 1 trivia question, and 1 "skill based" challenge (usually something creative, like making a haiku, writing a blog, or drawing a picture). With all of the challenges, you'll collect points just for having taken part and having had a go. Obviously you'll be getting more points in the trivia contests if you actually get it right, and there'll also be bonus points awarded in the creative challenges for people whose efforts are particularly memorable. Being so bad that they're good qualifies as "memorable", so don't worry if you're not at drawing if an art challenge rolls around. ;)

At the end of the 12 days, the points will be totaled, and then...well, you'll have to wait and see, but we're hoping to give you a nailbiting finish no matter what happens. ;)

You have no idea how awkward it feels for people when you post this, and your name does actually come up when I roll the (virtual) dice.

Oh Thanks. I didnt even know i won it was empty when i posted earlier.

Congrats to the other winners.

Hmm, considering the contests start on December 12th it looks like it may be similar to that whole twelve days of Christmas that were held last time, I'm intrigued.

I accept this token of appreciation for my genius that saved this year's '12 days' contest, anime shinbin, and quite possibly the entire world from certain doom with the utmost humbleness I can muster.

Sorry guys, a minor medical emergency with my wife means that this was be posted a little later than initially expected. You can still get full points on the challenges presented today even if you answered tomorrow, so there won't be any disadvantage to anyone from that I think.
