And still will mean that much after this. But what it does mean is lots of fun for all members, who get to view funny/amusing entries and vote on them... or submit them themselves.

And yes SugarJ, I'm more than well aware of the staff's busy-ness, but this whole thing could be taken care of the mods and a few people with amusing ideas for the contests. Nothing really needs being done other than what can be done using the functions that Every mod has (user title/color change, extra icons, whatnot).

I think you have may have an incorrect opinion of what the mods can do on this board. I can not change a user's title or color, or add icons. I can delete spam / offensive messages, and hand out infractions.

And to be honest, my time is already maxed out with other concerns. Perhaps others may be more receptive.

Not going to comment on what I think of post count / Rep, but I am all for anything that helps to get some of the older members posting more.
I would be more than willing to help if there is anything needed.
And no I dont want a user color like FiXT, SKYMTL's was way better.

Is it possible to make the title all capitals, highlighted black, bold, with text colour as fluorescent pink? (no homo)

Thanks for the vote of confidence SuperG!

I'm really liking this idea as a fun thing to do (for fun) once in a while. It'll promote the site, new users can view submissions and vote (or be in challenges themselves) and older users get to kick off some rust and try something they havent before

Seriously though... when was the last time you tried to hit a specific frequency when over/underclocking? Could be really fun! And thats just one example! Imagine was ridiculous ideas some creative minds could think of!

Thanks AkG! Although im not really sure this would be called a "contest" as that implies reward... and I cant make such lofty claims. "Challenge" implies voluntary and "if you're up for it" lol

Still, let's see what Gav says... I'll send a message his way tomorrow if he hasnt already seen this thread by then
