Competitions - Read First before submitting your entry

You can enter your forum in as many categories as are relevant.

When entering a forum the subject line must be ONLY the link of the forum. e.g.

http://forum.myfreeforum.org/

Also give a link in the message.

The message should then say why you think you should be considered.

Prizes will be myfreeforum t-shirts.

Competitions will close at the end of August, and judging will be a democratic vote by the mods.

myff admin

He is a mod, but not currently active.

You can always enter, but it may be for the sake of fairness we would have to decide against allowing it.

Sorry about that

myff admin

Check through ie7 settings for something like "compatible mode" and turn it off.
Daniel(u1bd2005)

Just wondering since its the end of august now and the competitions should be closing about now, how long is judging expected to take, a week or two maybe? (or less?, or more?)
myff admin

You are right the competition is over. Judging will now begin

Time will be what time will be...
connorconway

great, lmao... I shouldn't have asked for the url change now. Everything reset itself so my template is terrible :lo: ah well... have fun voting
Daniel(u1bd2005)

Admin, My forum is entered into the top of the search area, and I have used the fact that my forum has a link on the official the4aces website as part of my post.
It looks like the4aces website has gone offline though (I think it may be permenantly, not sure though) and I was wondering wether this has lowered my chances of winning.

The reason I think the4aces site has gone permanantly is because the company Mystical Productions who made the4aces went out of business a while ago.

So has this affected my chances? I'll understand if it has.
myff admin

Well we will just have to see what the judges say, but not being current with what people are searching for cannot help.
mamodforums

Could I ask please, when will we find out who won what?
Nick(NR)

When we eliminate forums from the comp so there's only one left in each category.
mamodforums

Thanks for that
DSi

Will there be more competitions, or was that it?
Sapp

Hopefully there's more. I'm ready for some competition. :/
Nick(NR)

Usually at the start of July this happens, at current there has been no discussion about this.

One thing is to keep an eye on this area, just in case.
myff admin

I'd welcome a thread on competition ideas.

We have run the same system two years running and I'm bored with it.
How Unlucky

How about like Forum with most posts, Most forum visitors, Best RPG Forum, Best game Forum, Best Movie Forum, Best General Discussion Forum.
myff admin

"most posts" will never be a winning competition. Quality is not quantity!
How Unlucky

Most active forum would be good.

I`d say no to that aswell, as too many children, set their session timers to "for Ever" just to make it look like 2 million people have visited the forum , in the last 5 mins.

As if anyone believes them.

Stop changing your name pls, it's starting to get really annoying!

Sorry nick ill keep this one for now on.

Please don't take this to heart, it's just that it starts to get rather confusing as it makes out there are several people coming from your forum and throws us off a little because a) we don't know you changed name and b) you may get treated differently in that a new name will hold no value as a retained one we will know what the person is capable of.
Sapp

Besides, "Most posts" and "Most activity" isn't really something you can vote on. It's already a fact.
How Unlucky

Yeah

Yea very true.

That and I don't really feel like going through bucket loads of posts to find out which had the best content.

Friendliest forum?  Most diverse forum?

If there was a competition for best gaming forum, then i'd love to enter mine into it.

On a side note, I have an idea. How about admin and the mods name a bog standard template and a forum genre i.e. football, gaming or basically whatever they come up with.

We all then have to use the said template and base the forum on the selected genre.

The person who comes up with the best forum wins the competition.

We could implement hacks, edit the template and all sorts of things we've learned off here to make it the best looking and most functional we can get it.

There would also be a time frame for finished entries to be in by.

Thoughts on this idea?
myff admin

I'd love to get some competitions running again, but it all takes time and effort to do properly.

The list of things that simply need doing to maintain and improve the service is pretty long.

This makes it an equation, do we want to spend 40 hours dealing with a fun competition, or 40 hours on improving the anti-spam system or any number of other needs we have currently?
Gosu71

I get your point.

You could always appoint a judging team of respected members of the help forum to help or do the judging, thus giving you and the mods all the time needed to go about your 'duties' as normal.

I think if we all got our heads together and posted our ideas on this then we could come up with an ideal solution.
