Ok, set your sights low. hellokittyxo takes half the credit and/or blame for this contest.
Start Date: Now
End Date: Friday, July 5th 10PM EDT -Winner Announcement Monday July 8th
What: Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to write a clever caption for the picture below.
hellokittyxo and myself will be your charming hostesses. Well...she'll be charming, I'll probably be something else, but we'll get to that.
Prize: The winner shall be awarded a prize (or prizes) equal to or less than 480 Lockwood Gift Machine tokens, OR 5000 casino chips or whatever that equates to in that 3-D copier thing the name of which escapes me at the moment and I added at the last minute but am too weary to look up right now. Basically, if it's around 5 bucks and we can send it to ya, we will.
Eligibility: Anyone with an account that is able to receive the above listed prizes is eligible. This means you too Canadian Home members. We like us the Canucks too I'm afraid you will have to add us to your friends list to be awarded the prize. I just want to say sorry right now if it's me you have to add.
IMPORTANT! READ AND UNDERSTAND OUR WEIRD RULES SO THERE IS NO MISUNDERSTANDING LATER (Please)
(Loose and Dirty) Rules:
1st post nets you 1pt.
Kudos (ohhh grrr yeah I know some people think kudos are the devil...you can deal with kudos however you want in your own contest and just finish reading, will ya?)...as I was saying, kudos net you 1 additional point for each awarded kudo on your FIRST post. After that, they're just for fun.
All additional caption entries earn you 1 additional point.
WE GIVETH AND WE TAKETH AWAY
*Special Rule: (this will be fun...well I think it will): We reserve the right to award extra points for any or no reason whatsoever. (1-3 points extra max). It could be because we thought it was extra clever, it could be because the sun was shining, it could be because we just bought a bag of Skittles and Skittles make us happy. We also reserve the right to take points away by vetoing the other persons decision. Limit one veto or one extra point allowance per instance.
EXAMPLE: UserABC posts something that Mya finds hilarious and she awards 3 extra points. Kitty, who just stepped on her hairbrush, is in a foul mood and takes all the extra points away. Nothing Mya can do...done. We'll let you folks know in the thread when the extra point goodness kicks in.
Random Drawing: After all points have been tallied by kitty whom I just volunteered right here and right now to do so, we will assign the total number of points for each person in blocks of numbers in the order in which they posted.
Example: UserABC posted 1st in the thread and they accumulated 7 points.
UserDEF posted 2nd in the thread and they accumulated 5 points
UserGHI posted 3rd and the racked up 2 points
UserABC is assigned 1-7 for the random draw, UserDEF gets 8-12, UserGHI has numbers 13-14.
See? No matter how many times you enter, you CAN win. We just want to encourage multiple entries and some clever posts.
Stick to the Rules of Conduct please as we have no control over what will be deleted by moderation (and possibly ridiculed in a subtle manner). Deleted posts lose the points awarded...sorry, but we have to keep it kinda clean and all.
If this isn't too much of a train wreck, we'd like to repeat it...perhaps weekly. We'll let you know.
We'd like to encourage EVERYONE to participate. The better response we get, the more likely we'll be to do it again.
So with all that out of the way, Caption This!
