New update: The prizes for the theming contest had already been given but unfortunately I couldn't see the announcement. Furthermore, the Dynno company will be adding to this contests prize dramatically. Once we decide how much, I'll update my first post.
About everyone's posts
A couple of you said "I hope I win, and others with Sixth post, etc." I made that part of the rule in red so users can see it better. Since the contest just began, I'm letting you guys go with no warnings this time. However, please do abide to the rules. If I catch you next time it's going on paper.

Which is basically what I said.
Any suggestions for other kinds of competitions?
I was thinking of making this contest a modification contest but since 1.4 is coming out everyone would probably say "it's a waist of my time". After I started the contest though, I was thinking of making it "Last one to post loses".

I once even ran a contest with a prize of $100.00 dollars a few yrs ago to get post counts and membership up and natta. All you had to do was get the most people to register and post ( not one liners ) and that was it. I dont bother with them anymore. The word games do atleast tend to keep people a little more active.
That doesn't even work for me on my forums.
Even a count to ten contest and win $30 doesn't work. I have the thread to prove it too.

The other contest got nearly 4,000 posts. The community was more active then though. This can be a mini contest within this contest to guess how many posts we can get in this thread. Users like Tristam are coming back for contests so we'll just wait 'n see.
