Time to try and liven up the forums again, if only for a while. KotF 2015 will run from Sunday Mar 15 - Monday Apr 13 (midnight to midnight, Eastern Standard Time).

At the end of that time, the people with the three highest scores will be awarded the titles of King, Prince, and Duke of the forums (or Queen, Princess, and Duchess) until next year and get their choice of one of the prizes available in their prize category. As always, all forums members who post during the contest, except me, are automatically entered.

The contest will be decided by score. Throughout the duration of the contest, all forum members will be awarded points for a variety of things. I'll keep track of these points and announce the highest scores at the end.

Earning Points:
Posting in any non Game/RP thread = 1 point per post
Posting in RPs (the RP board, RP Battles board, ROM, and Portal Panic) = 2 points per post
Posting in Games (the Games board and The Thingy Game) = 1/2 point per post
Starting a new thread = 4 points + 1 point for every five posts made in that thread (doesn't matter who posts)
Getting a new person to join the forums = 10 points + 1 point for every five posts made by that new member
Winning a round of The Thingy Game = 3 points
Winning an Insult Sword Fight = 5 points
Winning an IPA battle against another forum member = 5 points
Winning Mafia When You're the Mafia = 5 points
Winning Mafia When You're Not the Mafia = 5 point
The Mafia Wins at Mafia When You're the Narrator = 5 points (no cheating or blatant misleading allowed)
Being one of the first three people to get into The Club when the requirements change = 3 points
Winning the In The Club hangman game = 5 points
Special bonuses = ? points
Winning Special Challenges = ? points

For the thread bonuses and new member bonuses, these only count for new threads that are created during the contest and new members that join during the contest.

Special bonuses are awarded for completing mystery goals. As to what those goals are, they're a mystery. Some of the ones from previous years may return...and some won't. There could be new ones too. Possible bonuses MIGHT include things like posting in the Saying Hi thread every day or posting lots of art. The points awarded will vary depending on the goal. Note that I also tend to give bonus points to posts that I find particularly awesome (very interesting, very funny, etc.).

During the course of the contest I will also post several special challenges that you can compete in to earn large amounts of bonus points.

Finally, spam posts, posts that break the forum rules, flaming, and reviving old threads for 'me too' posts will not earn points and may even result in a loss of points. (However, reviving old threads for legitimate reasons, such as bringing back an old game or RP, are perfectly fine.) I will be monitoring not just the number, but also the quality of posts so spamming to up your post count is a VERY BAD idea.

Prizes are as follows.

1st Prize (King/Queen): Choice of one of the following + graphic for signature, special forum title, and Car Washer: Summer of the Ninja game and OST download:
Two printed and signed PV strips of your choice (mailed)
Cash prize ($25 mailed, paypaled, or donated to PV)
Short sprite comic series (6-10 strips) featuring the winner

2nd Prize (Prince/Princess): Choice of one of the following + graphic for signature and special forum title:
Cash prize ($15 mailed, paypaled, or donated to PV)
Printed and signed PV strip of your choice (mailed)
Very short sprite comic series featuring the winner (2-3 strips)
Downloadable copy of Car Washer: Summer of the Ninja + the OST

3rd Prize (Duke/Duchess): Choice of one of the following + graphic for signature and special forum title:
Cash prize ($5 mailed, paypaled, or donated to PV)
Single sprite comic featuring the winner
Downloadable copy of Car Washer: Summer of the Ninja

If you have any questions about the contest please post them here.

I mean, it is usually what brings people back. We've had this cycle for years now; no activity for 11/12 months, everybody comes back for exactly 1.

Fine by me; I'll be sure to rally the troops on FB again soon.

PoikSpirit ready for duty. Also, I think you selected the wrong thread to pin to announcements; I think the other one is more appropriate.

Should have gotten this done days ago but anyway... I suppose I don't need to tell you guys that this was the slowest KotF we've ever had. Still, it was nice to see the activity boost, even if it was a small one. Anyway, there were only three serious competitors, Silver, Stevenson, and Shauni. Because of that, I decided to cut things down to just two awards this year. Hope you guys don't mind. So, the winners are...

Point totals are:
125.5 – Josiah
79 – Silver
64 - Stevenson
60 - Shauni
33.5 – Poikspirit
12 – Saber Knight
1 - Luke

Yeah, I actually would have won this one if I were eligible... Anyway, congrats to the winners and hopefully we can keep at least a little bit of activity going year around this time.

Yeah...sorry about that. If you want, I could add back in the Duke/Duchess award.
