Why is no one signing up for my Dream Town Contest?

#1theotherpromisePosted 12/12/2013 7:22:42 PM
I am currently trying to create a contest on GameFAQs where people can vote for their favorite dream towns that GameFAQs users have made, but I am getting far fewer people posting than I expected.

The topic in question is this one: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/997811-animal-crossing-new-leaf/68078478

If you have been to this topic but chose not to participate can you please say why that is. It would be nice to have some feedback so I can know what about it is intimidating.

I really need more participants if I am actually going to be able to create this contest. So if your main concern is that you don't think your town is good enough, even though you have put tons of effort into it, then please don't be so modest.

I'd enter but my town is far from finished and there is still a lot of things I want to do to it.

Just because it isn't very far doesn't mean it can't be a favorite of several people. If your town is developed enough that people can see what you are working towards then that is good enough for the sake of this contest.

If your town looks cool enough as is that you think someone would vote for it, then you should enter it. After all in the end I am trying to create a topic with awesome dream towns that could get stickied so everyone can see them.

Also Mystery2013 I have been to Moonlight and thought that it was pretty interesting, also don't underestimate how important the selling points could be. Since you are trying to tell a story in your town, that is a mighty strong selling point to most voters.

I guess I can give it a try.

Yeah, I that's probably it. I wasn't going to put mine up at first because I've seen towns that most people probably think are better than mine, but I decided that I'd do it anyway because this is just for fun, so it's no big deal.

I am worried that I made it sound a lot more intimidating than I meant when I said I wanted towns that were mostly complete. I've been to a lot of people's towns on this board that, while not necessarily complete, have a lot of interesting things going on. Basically if you could write a selling point that could convince people to visit your town, your town would work for this competition. The only people who should be hesitant to participate are the ones who couldn't write a selling point, since that most likely means they have nothing distinctive about their town. And of course those who won't have time to vote.

The problem with simply waiting is that I was hoping to get The Results done by Christmas, while still giving people plenty of time to vote, so I can't wait too long for submissions.

Also if anyone knows someone who has a really cool town please let them know about this contest.
