The next contest will begin on the 15th on this month, I am also looking for any suggestions on how to change the set up from the previous contests.

Oh and I have some other plans that I am starting next week. ^.^

oooo new contest...

how about you pick a random achievement (one that you don't have yet of course) and we have to find you in game and do the achievement together? that is the prereq to enter the contest
maybe not the ones that require salvaging items, or picking up 100m gold, but finding certain uniques/champ monsters

just an idea

whats the prize btw? XD

If its a gold prize, I voluntarily abstain since I was the grand prize winner the last time.

I suggest giving me a present, since the 18th is my birthday! :-P

But in all seriousness, the last gold contest was what got me posting on this site in the first place (previously I just trolled / watched the tracker). I think gold is a pretty strong driving force, since you never really know who will win or what items they'd want. Another idea might be the currently most valued blacksmithing recipes, but once again, with gold you can just buy those yourself.

I think the biggest issue is having maybe a panel of judges decide which posts are valuable, and which are trash. If you want the contest to bring in more steady, reliable members, we should encourage that somehow. I'll keep trying to think about what that might entail.

What is the flexibility of the contest formats? I mean other than giving people items/gold what else would you be able to do... Run 9 Inferno Machines on a high MP with the winner?

@Shihiko yes that's possible, but since I can't do MP10 that's not really a guaranteed prize.

Is the contest available at Asia Time Zone?

Like Jhonka, I stumbled across this site & followed it for awhile before actually posting. I really liked the AH tracker (the best one I've found on the Internet so far) & finally registered to leave a post because of one of the giveaways (the star emerald one last week, in fact--which I still need to try & grab...), so a contest would definitely be a good thing for attracting users. & I would love to try to participate in one (though like whitejack, I am in the Asia Time Zone, which might make things like doing runs for infernal key machines a bit harder to time).

As someone who has never hit the 2 million gold mark (& have only reached 1 million gold maybe thrice?) and whose equipment is basically scrounged together through lucky auctions or gifts from friends or friendly strangers, I would agree that prizes of gold are definitely extremely welcome. Blacksmith recipes, jewel crafting recipes, gems, legendary items, set items, etc. are all very welcome too, as I've had very bad luck in getting drops of those items (to date I've only gotten 3 legendary items, 1 set item, 1 jewel crafting plan, & 1 blacksmith plan as drops in this game...) :-(

Is there a good place on the site to review all of the previous contests that have been held, w/o scrolling through the forums? I'm curious what all has already been done...

btw, thanks for maintaining such an awesome site, Anuiran! :)

I don't think I did the September one, but I did do the August one, and I think that was a pretty good format. I do think that gold giveaways would be good. It enables the winner(s) to get what they need rather than just have a chance at something they can use.

Thanks for the quick reply, Anuiran--however, those are just the lists of winners. What were the actual "contests" that one had to do in order to win...? Cause in your original post asking for "suggestions on how to change the set up", I thought you were looking for contest ideas in addition to ideas on the prizes themselves?

Oh, I forgot since the contests are over the entry page is gone. It was basically just a checkmark of requirements.

(1) Post on forums
(2) Add an item to auction house favorites)
(3) Enter contest button shows up if those requirements have been finished.

I suggest that there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.

I vote for gold. That way people of all classes and builds can get the gear that they want.

I vote Unid Leg/Sets. Want to get a dual soc manticore and nats goodies :)

That way we have chances at items most people have to spend hundreds of millions on. Maybe a bit of gold on top in case of the items rolling low

Unid Legendary and Sets sounds good to me... Though I have a few in my stash, tried to ID some earlier today and didn't get great rolls. Mempos still worth about 10m.

I don't like unid's as they are too random, first place could get horrible items. Yet 50th place gets a 2billion gold item.

are you taking input on what the contest should be? or what the prize should be? or both?

i think top3 winners join you a game and you should act like a goblin and run around dropping items

Seems fair to me.

i was watching a stream on twitch where they were giving stuff away. what they did was like a treasure hunt, where different legendaries were dropped off at random places in ponyland and select winners were added to join the game
