Once again, the time for The King of the Forums Contest nears!

The contest will start on February 20 and run through March 22 (midnight to midnight, US Mountain 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 catagory. 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.

If anyone wants to volunteer to help me count posts, that'd be great. Basically, volunteers will be assigned certain sections or threads on the forums and must keep track of how many posts each member made in their area then PM me the numbers every day or two. Volunteers should make sure that they'll be available during the entire contest and will have the time and dedication to count posts and PM me the results on a daily or near daily basis. Naturally, since volunteers are still competing in the contest as well, I'll be checking up on their numbers from time to time to prevent cheating. Not that I expect anyone here to cheat, but anyone caught doing so will be automatically eliminated from the contest. If anyone is interested, PM me and I'll get back to you.

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 = 2 points + 1 point for every five posts made in that thread (doesn't matter who posts)
Getting a new person to join the forums = 2 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 = 2 point
The Mafia Wins at Mafia When You`re the Narrator = 4 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 particularily awesome (very interseting, 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 and special forum title:
Cash prize ($25 mailed, paypaled, or donated to PV)
Signed copy of Guardian of The Stone + printed and signed PV strip of your choice (mailed)
Short sprite comic series (6-10 strips) featuring the winner
Piece of artwork by Josiah and piece of artwork by Shauni
Short Flash movie 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)
Signed copy of Guardian of The Stone (mailed)
Printed and signed PV strip of your choice (mailed)
Very short sprite comic series featuring the winner (2-3 strips)
Piece of Artwork by Josiah
Piece of Artwork by Shauni

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
Small piece of artwork by Josiah
Small piece of artwork by Shauni

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

It was lonely... you promised you'd write to me, but you never did... the months passed by, and I still thought of you every day, but you never called. I never got any letters from you.

So eventually, I started to lose faith... I thought you had been killed in that terrible, terrible war. Or maybe that you had forgotten about me. It's been so long, you probably found another girl over there... I never stopped loving you, but I didn't think you cared about me anymore, so welcoming you back just would have been too painful for me... I'm sorry. I'm glad you've come back home *sniff*

Oh, so that's how it works! I'm willing to give this a try, as it sounds especially interesting. Plus, it means posting! Not much of it as of now...

Interesting, I come back and make it just in time for King of The Forums. Of course, I won't win this time, but I'll use this as an excuse to post more.

The fateful King of the Forum Contest, Where Astral joined in late and managed to come in second. I just keep thinking, Has it really been that long?

Oh well, back into the fray. ^_^

No need to be baffled. Between you and Silver, there were like 5 - 10 pages of new posts in every game thread every day. You were posting like crazy.

It was, though I had more free time that year than during most KOTFs. And it's easier to count when two people are in a post war than when a whole lot of different people are posting in the same thread.

And KOTF 2011 is over! I hope everyone had a good time. I'll be announcing the winners of the 4th challenge momentarily. The winners of the whole event will be announced later this week after I finish counting yesterday's posts, add up everyone's final scores, and make the award images.

A few last minute bonus points...

Saber gets 15 points for posting the most (other than me) in Saying Hi. Metal was second in that catagory and gets 10 points.
Phonox and Poison each get 15 points for the amount of art they posted.
Finally several people got a few extra points here and there for making really awesome posts in one thread or another but I don't really feel like typing up the whole list.
