 Ideas for New Contests (Safe for Work)
Post your ideas here

OK, we just finished our last contest, and now I'm looking to start a new one. We've had several different ones in the past. It's still not time to rerun some of the older ones. I'd actually like to have maybe at least a year between same-topic contests so that we can expose ourselves to new anime characters.

Any new ideas? I'll probably start collecting nominations as soon as we have some proposals. But the actual contest will probably only start after New Year.

It's only been for the NSFW forum, but glad to see we have a subsection here to make general contests.

Anime Superlatives (and contest ideas I can think of off the top of my head):

Favorite Male/Female Villain

Funniest Male/Female

Best Duo/Best Friends (not the same as Favorite Couple - this would imply non-romantic inclinations)

Favorite Musical Anime Characters Male/Female (this would be an awesome one if we could get enough nominations)

Best Youth Male/Female

Best Dressed Male/Female (in other words, who has the most sense of style Razz)

Most Talented Male/Female Anime Character (with respect to a skill or talent)

And I think that's all I can contribute in terms of ideas.

Hmm maybe instead of characters we can have anime series battles?

This section has been around for months already. Laughing But it's been idle because our last two contests didn't really fit in here, them being NSFW.

COol, some great ideas there. Keep them coming.

Definitely cutest character/animal ever. We've got plenty of nominations in the cutest character thread that's buried somewhere in the forums.

And umm... Villains you want to have sex with if they weren't so evil? xD J/K J/K

I think of all the contests-the best Villain-male or female-or the negative character has not been contested yet-I dont know though how many options one can come up with this-off my head-I can remember-Liebert,The Count,Griffith,any of the Homunculi in FMA.

I'm keen to do a villian-type contest next. Not sure if we'llhave enough nominations. One option would be to lump both male and female villians together for the contest. That way it would be easier to fill up the starting roster. Alternatively we can run a shorter contest with a starting roster of only 32 names.

Oh yes, 64 would be too much for villains. 32 is a good number.

Shall we decide on this here and now? We'll do a "Baddest Villian" contest starting after the New Year? I'll keep Last's "Favorite Anime Theme" for later, or until I get confirmation that he means OP, ED, insert songs when he said "theme".

There is one problem with the villain thing though: spoilers. In some series (especially the mystery ones, the villain remains hidden). Example: One villain which remained hidden and was a big shocker to many people was Aizen from Bleach. What to do about such nominations?

Note: Aizen ain't a good villain. He is crappy at best. Just giving an example. k?

Eh.... Think we should start with Last's idea first? That'll at least give us some time to work out a solution.

I think Last's is a great Idea, is it both OP and ED, if so that is going to be so difficult to narrow down to 5.

You could make the contest with voting options such as
1. The Villain from Bleach
2. The villain from [insert anime here]

As long as no one mentions the name of the character, those who know who it is can vote, whilst those who don't know can continue watching the show.

We'll start talking in circles. I remember once when Pain (from Naruto) became "it"... That thread was a mess! Laughing Here is an example:

A: The villain of Bleach was cooler than the villain of Higurashi.
B: Naah!!! Higu villain rocked. When she [....]
A: Wait a sec! The villain in Higu is a she? Rika is the villain???
B: Aww crap...

blah blah blah... lame conversation...

Lets just go with the OP/ED thingy...

I agree. Let's go with the music themes. I mentioned previously that we might include insert songs. Scrap that idea. We wouldn't know the titles of those songs, unless we had the OST CDs or whatever. Let's just stick with OPs and EDs.

I'll start the nomination thread today. But I won't start the actual voting rounds until after we've gotten enough nominations (let's stick with 64), and at least after New Year. I need a bit of a break. Laughing

As for the villian thingy, I dn't think we have a good solution with the potential spoilers yet. Let's hold back on that one a while.

Well you have to remember that the Couples contest was pretty much 100% spoilers. So, keep that in mind that we have done a spoilerific contest before. I don't remember anyone complaining in that one.

Well, I just wanted to play it safe. Anyone who's OK with the spoilers, do post in here to let me know. We can do that contest after the anime themes one. Or even concurrently. As long as we have enough ideas for contests, I don't mind running 2 at a time. That'll also generate more discussion in here.

Let's all bump the activity level in here up some notches. Very Happy

I'm ok with the risk of spoilers in doing the villian contest. I don't think we should do 2 contests at once though. I think it'll cause too much clutter.

^Well I love contests. Those things pretty much sealed my commitment to these forums. Twisted Evil Laughing

But yeah, I agree, 2 contests at once isn't nearly as long-lasting and as fun as having one right after the other. ^_^

Did you notice that you warned about the risk of spoilers and told one in the same post? Laughing No one probably cares though. It's bleach after all.

About the OP/ED contest... generally, someone would have seen the series to have seen the OP/ED... that's if you exclude series that people have dropped, etc...

Also, are we doing just music or the whole sequence? I'd rather vote for how well an opening/ending scene fits with its music and the series as a whole.

Just the music. Think of it as out own Billboard Top 20 (or whatever). Laughing
