Art and Poetry Contests??
« on: May 14, 2005, 09:25:50 am »
well, actually its kinda more of a question, but it will turn into a suggestion hopefully '<img'>

Why did we stop the poetry and art contests, and the "Choice of the week"? I would think that these would kinda spark up the board even more, provide more activity and suchness (i think..). But yet...as ive saw on the main page, the last one was in 2003!!!  ':dead:' (but the contests date back to 2004, but thats beside the point

So, what im kinda suggesting is, bring them backers!!  '<img'>

Avy credit and love goes to zion!

Basicly it's lack of fur power.  Everyone is so back loged right now on work.  I'll put the position up in anouncements.  If someone wishes to take over the post of colecting votes and updating the pages I'll give them an account to run it.

I wouldn't mind helping out with that.  If you ever want to pick it back up, just let me know and I'll be glad to help.

Ulario, you have my vote! LOL

I will post this to the mod/staff section for a vote and then will let you know. (smiles)

They were a great asset but like WS said, we need more man/griffon power! (smiles)

Well, I'll have plenty of time to run things... especially during the summer (heck, I could probably do it all by myself during the Summer, possibly after college starts again, too).  I'd be more then happy to help, since I feel like I should give back to Furtopia after being here well over a year and a half.  I'd definately like to see the choice of the week back again.  I have a few other ideas for making the furtopian community more fun and get other furs to participate... but I won't tell them here because it would spoil all the fun.  '<img'>

Perhaps just adding a 'Contests' Forum to the forums list, then whoever starts the contect arranges everything. then all the widespread art, idea, etc contests can be consolidated.

but that's just me. It's an idea I stole off the furry-furry and the old werenation boards..
