AnimeShinbun March 2015 Contests

Hi everyone,

Hard to believe we're already so far through the current anime season, isn't it? Time seems to have just flown by. Found something good to watch this season, I hope? If you haven't, now's probably the time to go through your backlogs. Why not explore some of the older anime series that are available on the big streaming sites? There's plenty of old classics out there that deserve your attention too.

Just a reminder that if you haven't already read the blog post I made about these things last year, "On submissions, approvals, and comments", you should really go do that. It includes important information regarding rules changes and updates here on AnimeShinbun. These issues can and will impact on your eligibility to win prizes. You can find the blog post at the following URL.

I'd be very interested in your feedback BTW on the current direction we're going with contests. We've seen a lot more news submissions over the past month, so I'm inclined to keep the current format of one contributor contest with more prizes for now, but what are your thoughts?

How many stories can you submit? Every news story you submit on AnimeShinbun during the month will get you 1 entry, and we'll be picking 4 winners at random from those entries. The more times you submit stories, the greater your chance to win!

Prize: 4 winners, receiving a $50 Amazon Gift Card each!

As usual with all of our contests, you'll be disqualified if you pick up a restriction of any kind during the contest period, or if it comes to our attention you've broken rules for posting and approving submissions that month (regardless of if that led to you being placed under a restriction or not). 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.

Terms and Conditions
1. Competition is open to all AnimeShinbun users, except for employees of HAVAmedia and immediate relatives. Contests are NOT limited to the US/North America.
2. Closing date is 11:59 PM (American Pacific Standard Time), March 30th 2015.
3. In the event of unforeseen circumstances AnimeShinbun/HAVAmedia reserves the right to substitute prizes for alternatives of equal or greater value.
4. Prizes are not transferable.
5. The winners of the competition will be notified by AnimeShinbun ticket on or before April 7th, 2015.
6. Failure to reply to ticket notification within seven (7) days will result in forfeiture of prize.

The story is too old to be commented.

I like the new format with the contributor contest, as that seems to make up the bulk of the activity on the site, but maybe having one commentor contest would be a nice way to encourage a little bit more discussion?

The blog/daily visitor contests I don't mind seeing go away.

Archaic1911d ago

Will consider doing that with the commentator contest next month. Would love to see a lot more discussion get going.

The visitor contest was indirectly meant to encourage people to visit (and approve stories) every day, but we haven't really seen a lot of change in the levels of approvals without it. Stories aren't going through as quick, but that's just because submissions are up in general right now.

I suppose this is the best way to approach things with a submission lottery. Though I do miss the user blogs =/

Archaic1911d ago

Likewise. Sadly, there were far too few blogs being submitted each month, which meant that the blog prize was basically rotating between 2-3 people for the entire year. Not really all that fair.

Just out of curiosity have the Shinbun awards been settled yet as to what series won each category and all that?

Archaic1910d ago

To be honest, no. ^^;;;; Barely had the time to watch anything over the last month (been doubling down on the PhD). Was kind of hoping someone would put in a late vote and save me. ^^;;

Thunder_God1910d ago

Now I'm curious, what are you studying?

coolbeans1910d ago

I'm curious about that like Thunder too. Hope it turns out well for you. :)

Archaic1907d ago

I'm doing my PhD in privacy.

And before someone gets offended, that's not a flippant remark to fob you off or anything, that's really what I'm studying. ^^;

Toonleap1901d ago

Wow, first time I won something. I replied to the ticket. Not sure if thats the thing to do. Thanks. Awesome.
