Look Modgod, dprules is right. We don't wish to make folks angry. I can just PM my address to send the stuff to and they won't stress. It's a tough sacrafice but I'm willing to do it. It's for the good of all the members. Cool

It's almost like I'm some kind of sh*t disturber ain't it? Hmmmmmmm.....

Well, how about this..I'm going to throw some ideas for prizes and we'll see what people think.

First prize - Case modding package including labor. Total prize consists of:

1 Clear acrylic jewel
1 10 LED Jewel Ring - Colors available (blue, green, red, UV, orange, pink, white, yellow.
1 LED modded Controller Ports - Colors available (same as LED ring)
1 Eject/Power PCB with LEDs changed to your specs. Same colors availabe as previous LED mods.
1 Vinyl Xbox Skin - Colors available. Red, Blue, Jewel Green, Yellow, Purple, Vibrant Green

Winner is responsible for shipping their Xbox to my shop, but I will include return shipping as part of the prize. Or, I can just send product and you can do your own labor, but I would be more than happy to do it for the winner.

Second Prize - DuoX 2 Mod chip

Third Prize - Vinyl Xbox Skin - Choice of Red, Blue, Jewel Green, Yellow, Purple, Vibrant Green.

Well fellas, there you have it. With forahobby's permission of course, I would like to sponsor July's contest with those prizes.

The contest like all others is based on a point system. Every time you participate in the forum, or submit news, cheats, reviews, etc...you get a certain amount of points. Granted some people have more time than others to partcipate so if anyone can think of any twists to make the contest as fair as possible I am up for suggestions.

I was thinking that maybe tally up all the points at the end of the month and for ever 500 points that someone has they get a ticket. Then, we first draw for 1st prize, then second, then third. Only one prize per person, so once someone's ticket is drawn for the first prize they cannot win second or third.

This way, our loyal members who don't have all the time in the world to submit files will still have a slight chance at getting first prize. However of course, the more you submit the more tickets you get...and the more tickets you get the more likelyhood of you getting first prize.

It's just a thought...we dont have to go there, but I just thought I would maybe make some suggestions and see what everyone thought.

Oh, and I would also like to add that I am personally going to purchase each winner an official Xbox-HQ T-Shirt Wink

Well, there you have it.

Ring in..we only have a couple more days before this contest gets underway. I also think we should make it clear who is and who is not eligible for the contest. I am not sure if the previous contests were for all who wanted to participate, or if it was a matter of VIPs. Personally, I don't care but if forahobby could touch base on this I think it would be great.

Maybe we'll do a separate VIP contest with some BIG DOG prizes real soon.... Oh the wheels are already turning...lol.

Hi,

its very quite lately.. Ive noticed my pm box not being full all the time heheh lol..

No really modgod.. Great prizes and i like the idea of choosing the winners.. Very unique and fair..

Just let me know if the START date is 1st July as i will reset all the points in the database.. Smile


Another competition in the works too:
Once a few members start getting ahold of some HQ Tshirts im going to hold another competition myself.. I want members to get a picture of themselves or someone attractive (get the hint) in a famous place with a HQ tshirt on..

Admins will choose which member they think should win by where the photo was taken etc etc.. Of course nice looking girlies wont go astray either!

Let the competition's rock!

Perhaps their chimes are broken. So I'll chime. I think those prizes rock and I can't wait to see all the chicks in the shirts. Woot!!!
Don't do the forum post points thing. It promotes activity but if admins are allowed to participate, there are certain people that JUST MIGHT think I cheat with all the posts I tend to corrupt the forums with. Laughing
At around T-minus one week and counting, I can't wait to see how this will turn out. Thanks for the prizes Modgod. It just shows one more reason why this place is the place to be.

Well Shark2th there may be a way around that.
I know you post allot, witch is totally cool, but most of your domain is the "Off-Topic" forums and "Jokes and Pictures"
I think that keeping the points low for a post is good (0 points to start a thread, 2 pts to reply) but is there a way to make it exclusive to certian sections of the board?
For instance you woulnt get any points for BSing around on the off topic board, or jokes and givaways, but you would get points for posting on the boards that help others. Like "Newbie Central", VIP, dashboard or modchip boards, Im sure you get the picture. That way we can promote people helping people.

I personally think Tutorials, as usual, should be the biggest point maker as it helps everyone...
But I have one qualm with that part of the system, A user can scour the net to find a tut thats already made, and easily copy that to the HQ. I aint got no problem with that as long as they cite the writer, but what about the chaps that do something new and spend the time write up their own tuts from scratch? To me atleast it seems slightly unfair.
I would still promote finding tuts and bringing them here, and should give one of the largest point counts (300 pts or so) but homegrown tuts should have something like 500 pts or something.
Since it would need some level of trust I may have to be open to only VIPs. I hate to discriminate, but the VIPs help make this place run (though Forahobby does most of the running). I think it would be a great way to bring in new people to the club.

And Yes! I agree, the Ticket system seems fair and fun!

Look Trebeck, I don't want admins running around the net trying to prove plagiarism. I think tutorials that are not dupes should indeed be worth a lot of points BUT I also know that one thread around here was talking about how we are "falling behind" in items available for download. The person likes the community but feels left behind in VIP treatment. I think those should carry the largest weight. Get us recovered from all the hate mail forahobby and others got because some turkey had Mommy and Daddy help write a letter claiming piracy at this site. Not that I'm angry or anything.
