Send a BBSer to the Weekend of Wonder

If video is to be involved, I imagine some kind of video submission contest ala WWE’s Tough Enough would provide some laffs and a good basis for whatever ‘other’ shenanigans might be applicable.

paging @smashmartian, he’ll understand.

That sort of selection process sort of sucks – you have the most beautiful dress… and it somebody else gets to wear it to the mutant prom.

If Comicon is “Nerd Prom” this is “the Mutant Hoedown” isn’t it?

Or something like that/

I like hoedown and fancy-dress ball best.

I think that might be my fault. :grimacing:

You can do multiple polls in the same post if you name them differently though…

I’m kinda stumped for a selection game, beyond asking @discbot to do the honors (and that’s not really a game).

As I said above – having the candidates pick a contest is an interesting idea, but also somehow fundamentally unfair. The “winner” of the “contest contest” would be helping to select (probably) somebody else.

If @jlw is still going to promote this on the main page, we could ask the bbs at large, maybe trust level 2 and up, to vote on otherwise anonymous submissions of some kind?

Which kinda leaves out video submissions I guess…

Or hell, we could just ask, ‘who wants this?’ and you (@othermichael) can give it to the first respondent?

Or set up an elaborate candid camera style ethical challenge where we tempt contestants to steal a wallet or somesuch and reward the righteous whilst punishing the wicked?

whoever can post the most UNIQUE questions in the questions thread in 15 minutes can go?

I thought it was going to be on the East coast this year!

I think it is better we have a regular bbs’er win this. I’d rather post the results. A post announcing a contest will not work to the benefit of the folks who regularly contribute here.u


I thought you were excluded from being able to win?

I am trying to NOT be the top-poster in there. @japhrohaig’s new-found interest in the offline world is proving problematic for that goal. As are all of the SLACKERS in that thread.



I’m disappointed you haven’t organized Thunderdome yet.

If the sponsored regular is supposed to blog about the event, wouldn’t a writing prompt contest make the most sense?


If we can put this off for 7 months I’m sure @Donald_Petersen will take care of it.

Yeeeessss… the trouble there is that the choice can be so personally biased.

However, what if we had a prompt writing contest, and chose the winner by poll?
