    Just an idea....
    We could have trivia contests, and sweepstakes..
    I think this would be a great addition to the forums. Mods would be in charge of these contests too

    What would be the prizes. A contest isn't much without prizes.

    Prizes could be like merchandise or an increase on your sig/avatar sizes, stuff like that...

    Ah, I remember those days when I thought TFGD had promise. I was so full of hope and innocence back in those days, but all of that was crushed under the endless "HAY WHAT IF THIS HAPPENED IN G1" threads.

    I have nothing against it, but wasn't there a rule about No-Contests?

    If it's not a contest run by the admins of the site, it can GTFO.

    I think there have been some competitions in the past. I can't remember if they were actually by TFW or TFW was just the conduit to them.
    Anyway, I kinda think it would just cause a load of problems when some people and their entries don't win and start bitching about who or what did win. It's just an extra level of hassle the site staff don't need.

    I don't know if I'm patient enough to stick around for a contest every 15 years.

    It wouldn't. The temptation to Google would be too great.

    Nope, you're supposed to pay money for perks like that. Everybody who already bought them would complain.

    Funny thing about contests here...something usually goes wrong...like the "tell me why you deserve a free Predaking" contest a few years back.

    I thought we had contests back in 2006.

    There's a lot of users with I voted for Super Megatron and got this lousy title. What was that for?
