October 2013: Character Battle IX Redux

#1DetroitDJ(Moderator)Posted 10/2/2013 10:56:20 AM
October's contest is another creative contest. For this contest, your goal is to create some kind of creative depiction of any battle from the latest character battle. You can see the final bracket here: http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/cb9_bracket

You can use any medium you want to create your entry. You can, for example, write a story, draw a picture, film a video, write a poem, sing a song, act it out with action figures, dress your pets up as the characters, perform a dramatic reading, perform an interpretive dance, or anything else you can imagine. The only requirements are that your entry be specifically about a single battle (not one character's entire journey through the contest), that your entry be ToU-friendly, and that your entry be uploaded off-site and linked to here.

To enter, upload your creation (or photos of it) to a third-party site. For example, for a text file you can use pastebin.com, for a Word document or PowerPoint file you can use Google Docs, for an image you can use imgur, and for a video you can use YouTube. Remember to follow all of the GameFAQs rules: no offensive content, no illegal content, and mark any spoilers. If you're making an album of photos, please use one that gives a single link to the entire album, like imgur.

Entries will be voted on by the moderators. The winner will receive 50 karma, and up to five runner-ups will split an additional 50 karma. Two randomly-selected entrants whose entries receive at least one vote (but who do not otherwise win a karma prize) will be selected to win 10 bonus karma. So, even if you don't think you have a shot at winning, putting together something decent still gives you a chance of winning a bonus prize.

Important! Please submit your entries using the following format:

Entry: http://www.website.com/yourentry

For example:

Entry: http://i.imgur.com/(yourimage).png
Entry: http://www.pastebin.com/fd4ff4
Entry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lt2MCK0
Entry: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uMt1c_k_hap

I cannot guarantee your entries will be considered if they are not in this format. You can include other text in the post, so long as the above text appears on its own line somewhere in your entry. Don't put numbers after 'Entry', don't put spaces before the colon, use exactly this format.

The deadline for entry will be in two weeks, on Wednesday, October 16th at 11:59PM EST.

Notes
1. Joint entries are permitted. If you and another user (or two, or three, or more) want to work together on an entry and split the prize if you win, that's fine -- just make sure that all entrants' usernames are included in the entry post. Also, after the entry is posted, it'd be helpful if all the entrants would post to confirm they're a part of the entry.

2. Maximum two entries per user, but only one winning entry per user. If you enter twice and both qualify for prizes, your higher-place entry will receive the prize karma, and lower-placed entries will be bumped up. If one (or both) of your entries is part of a joint entry, you can only receive karma for one entry, but the others in the joint entry may still receive karma.

3. All work must be original. Of course, though, if you've put together something like this in the past (or you've made things that could be used for this contest), you're welcome to enter it.

4. The Terms of Service still apply -- don't post any entries that violate any of the Terms of Service. This includes marking spoilers if your entry contains any.

5. To change your entry, delete your original post. I won't be compiling a list of entries until the deadline passes, so as long as your post is visible at the deadline, it'll be added.

Good luck!

This post is a sample entry. It's fine for me to write some text up here, so long as this line appears on its own:

Entry: http://pastebin.com/eDGyaKAe

Oh, and I can include more than one entry. For example:

Entry: http://pastebin.com/5t3vCa6D

Both those entries would be considered. However, none of these entries would be considered:

Entry 1: http://pastebin.com/5t3vCa6D -- Hey, there's not supposed to be a '1' there! This entry wouldn't get seen!

My Entry: http://pastebin.com/5t3vCa6D -- Why is the word 'My' there?! Don't do that!

Entry : http://pastebin.com/5t3vCa6D -- What, a space before the colon? Ouch, my grammar bone.

http://pastebin.com/5t3vCa6D -- A link by itself? That certainly wouldn't get picked up!
