User-submitted contest prize

Category: Uncategorized @ 12:38 am

A few weeks ago, on the forum, we discussed the idea of prizes for users-submitted contest ideas.  Well, we’ve worked something out that works for us and fits in well with themes of MM.  After every 5 user-submitted contests we run, we’ll put them in a poll for users to vote on the best one.  The prize for winning will be at least $75 to Amazon (or $125 to the MM Store).  I have to give credit to SesameStreetgang for the genesis of this excellent idea.  

This won’t happen very often, because it takes a while to run 5 user contests, but the longer it takes, the more money we’ll add to the prize pool.  Any user can submit a contest.  If we decide to run yours, or a slightly modified version of it, you’ll have your chance to be in the poll.

I can give you a few tips on creating a contest that we’ll likely run.  The first is to see our past contests to get a sense of the kinds of challenges we run.  You can skip this one if you’re a long-time user.

The second is to make your contest something that most people could enter if they wanted to.  It’s okay if the contest requires a little explanation.  For example, having a haiku contest in which you describe how to write one is acceptable, but a contest that requires users to write a computer program that passes the Turing Test is probably too tough.  

Lastly, the contest must have enough creative space to allow many entries.  If your contest is to name the worst film from the Matrix trilogy, the users only have 3 choices (and clearly the answer is the 3rd).

If you have an idea you think we’d like, submit it via the contact us tab or by email at mentalmagma (at) gmail (dot) com.
