AnimeShinbun February 2013 Contests

Hi everyone! Between Christmas and gathering trivia questions for our Quizify app (speaking of which, winners from that will be notified tomorrow), it's been a while since we've had our last regular contests, hasn't it? It's about time we went back to the normal format, I think....

Just a heads up BTW, I have had one person who won a prize November last year put their hand up over the past couple of days and let us know they didn't get their Amazon gift card. If you're also in that position, please get in touch with me so I can follow that up for you.

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

The regular contests are back!

I hope i win this month and last month. it's been so long since I won anything despite all my efforts!!

SynGamer1934d ago

I think we ALL want to win, but yes, it's been quite some time since I won something. I'm actually really curious to see what questions they chose for the trivia. I'm hoping it's a balance of hardcore and casual for fans old and new.

koga881934d ago

To be fair everyone had a real good chance of winning something during the December contest. Simply trying to do most of the creative challenges would have netted you third or fourth place and given you a prize of some sort.

tayz1934d ago (Edited 1934d ago )

December contests were pathetic. I couldn't even stand them, didn't even bother. Hope those are not done this year.

futurefrog1934d ago

thats your own fault tayz, stop complaining you just seem like a crybaby now

koga881934d ago


Just out of curiousity how were they pathetic? If it was because the questions that were asked were difficult... of course they were meant to be difficult. That is why there were those creative challenges to spice things up and give others a chance to win or boost their score. Also except for a few questions which were either guesses or I got wrong, most of them could be answered with a decent amount of "Google-Fu."

If it wasn't because the stuff wasn't focused on shōnen series then you need to expand you're anime/manga territory. It's good to change the contests up every once and awhile to keep things fresh.

Archaic1933d ago

Yours is the first piece of negative feedback we've gotten in response to those contests tayz. Could you elaborate on why you didn't like them? Though we were going to tweak the points system based on our experiences from 2012, we had been intending to retain the basic format for Christmas this year.

Simon_Brezhnev1931d ago

Tayz didnt like the contest because it wasnt Naruto related. Most of us who participated loves all types of animes.

I'm not going to reveal *which* questions were chosen for the Quizify app. That'd just spoil the fun! You'll have to try the app yourself when it's out to see. ;)

List of winners for that contest being added to the opening post now.

SynGamer1933d ago

When is the quiz app going live?

Archaic1932d ago

I'm not entirely sure, to be honest. I believe sometime later this month. I'll post a blog when it's up.

aDDicteD1933d ago

nice! Congrats to all the winners! happy to contribute something on the quizify app ^_^
and goodluck to all this month

koga881929d ago

Neat, just noticed that the winners were posted. Congrats people, glad to see that a lot of people were able to get a question or two in to win. I'm interested to see how the app will turn out and what questions were picked.

ReconHope1928d ago

Would participate if there was an incentive like an actual prize. still haven't got my prize from november.

Archaic1927d ago

Following this up for you, please see my PM. I know several things were sent out this past week, so I don't know why you still haven't received it unless it's ended up in a spam folder or something.
