I cant be bothered reading the last 7 pages. Did anything ever happen?
Siaynoq learned he can't change titles, so he needs Elfen. This was in the thread. Elfen had previiously said in another thread, however, he isn't supposed to use his awesome Admin powers like changing titles and making mods without consulting Umaro, who, as we know, is not the most responsive of webmasters.
I think it is a good idea. I have seen people like Saiynoq, Thasador, Carlos, Elfen and Silver. All with their own custom titles and thoguht to myself.....hm......I gotta get me some of that.
So I reckon a contest of somekind would be a good idea. We could even get Elfen or Saiynoq or someone to host a whole bunch of competitions. Even if it isn't just a random draw. Like they were holding the Design comps last year. They should have something like creative writing or comedy or perhaps even a "putting to shame" contest.
Alright folks, I spoke with Elfen and he as agreed to award the custom title to whoever wins the contest. This will be the first time this sort of drawing has been done, so bear with me and I will do my best to make the rules as clear as possible. Please read the following carefully. It will go down like this:
Tomorrow I'll start a thread titled Custom Rank Lottery. In order to enter the lottery, say Go banana!
Once you type that (I just needed a phrase that met the minimum post requirement), you will be officially entered into the lottery.
Once the thread has been created, the thread will remain open until until the 51st post (please note that if I or another mod is not around to close it after the 51st post, all posts after the 51st one will not be counted; so please don't complain if you posted Go banana! in the thread and you didn't make it in the first 51 posts. Yours entry will simply not be qualified if you didn't make it in time).
Once all the entries are in, I will take the first fifty names after my first post and enter them into the lottery. Out of these 50 names I will draw two winners. Those two winners will get a custom rank of their choice (note that your custom rank still has to meet the approval of Elfen. Obviously we're all pretty open-minded here, but if your custom rank is gonna be Serial Rapist or Baby Murderer, then we may have a problem. You're all mature enough to know what is over the top and what isn't. I want you all to have fun with this but I don't want anyone abusing it either).
If you enter Go banana! more than once in this thread, or post more than once of any kind, you will be disqualified from the lottery. Just type Go banana! once and leave it at that. I need to be able to easily go through all of the entries and I don't want more than one post from anyone.
One more important thing. Once the winners have made their final decision for their custom rank, it is final. The only way that person may have their custom rank changed is if they go back to our standard ranking system. So to the winners of the lottery, think carefully about what you want your rank to be and then choose it. I don't want winners PMing anyone saying they wanna change their title to something else. So remember, you may only change it by going back to the standard ranking system. Or unless they happen to win another custom rank lottery in the future.
I promise once all the entries are in that the winners will be picked utterly randomly. I will put all the names on paper into a bowl and pick two winners.
Keep in mind also folks that this lottery could not proceed without Elfen's divine power. So whoever wins should be sure to thank him once it is all over. If this all goes well, we can consider other such lotteries in the future.
It is Wednesday evening as I write this. Tomorrow, whenever I wake up, the lottery will begin. So keep an eye out for the thread.
It won't be till at least 10 a.m. Mountain Time that the thread is created. So in the meantime, if you have any further questions about the lottery, feel free to ask them here.
