March Contest Discussion Thread

Post by midgetshrimp » Mon Mar 05, 2012 9:16 pm

Get ready for another wild and crazy contest, because...

Its the March Madness Nom-taste-ular Cook Off! (the crowd goes wild!)

For those that remember from last year, and for those that don't, the March contest is - you guessed it - a cook-off! Thats right, its a culinary contest to show off your kitchen skills. How to enter? It's so simple even Frankie could do it...

All you need to do is make your favourite recipe, be it snack, desert, main meal... whatever! Not a good cook? Who cares! Make the best damned PB&J the world has ever seen! Just have some fun and make the tasty happen!

The format is fairly straightforward. Make the food, take pictures of the food, tell us what it is and how you made it. All entries must include a recipe and step-by-step instructions, as well as at least one picture. If you only take one picture, it must be of the finished product. Also, to prove that you actually made your masterpiece and you didn't just swipe it off of google images, the picture of your finished product must include YOU (or if you're really uncomfortable with that, include something in the photo that let's us know it's the real deal, such as a personalized card to the forum or something).

Entries will be open until the 26th, and voting will end on the 31st. This thread is for discussion of the contest only.


Due to the last year's success, we also will be presenting the Second Annual Lonely Hearts Contest! This was a February contest last year, but we said screw it and now it's in March! We'll be sticking with DnE's rules, because he explained them so well and I'm too lazy to change them! :D

Dirty n Evil wrote:Hello, forum! To switch things up a little bit this year, we're trying a new contest - being that February is the awful month with that dreaded holiday of Valentine's Day in it, we're writing a playful little entry in the theme of a personal ad. Now, this isn't you writing an actual personal ad... instead, make up a personal ad based on your the little persona you've built up here through the forums. Tenjen is the perfect example - hope you don't mind me pointing you out here, Tenjen. But in real life he's not a lynx kitteh, as much as I'd enjoy seeing a lynx actually typing away at a keyboard. If you're fairly new and you don't feel like you've "built up" enough of a persona on the boards yet? No problem! Just have a bit of fun and write it up as an exaggerated version of yourself.

The criteria of the contest are as such:
1. All entries must be a total of 35 words or less.
2. Must have a headline (written in bold) atop the remainder of the paragraph that is no more than three words total.
3. No pictures or bribes.
4. Keep to the established forum guidelines with your entries.

And just in case people want a little suggestion, here is a mock-up entry to inspire...

Evil Maniac Love
Despot of all he surveys seeks adoring minion to be
by his side as he crushes those futile enough to
oppose him. Let's rule the world together!
No smokers, no players please.


The entry period is from now until the 26th of March. After which voting will take place until the 31st.

As always the prize is a shiny name color and rank title (if someone wins or is close to first place who does not have a title yet, that is).

Despite being told frequently what a good cook I am, I've never won the cooking contest. I want this year to be my year. :)

Would it be considered cheating to respond to one of the entries, À la the Pina Colada song?

Hmmm, assuming the response is not personally attacking or insulting (I'm very, very sure you would never do that), I don't see why not?

I've been holding off making my entry for the cook-off because of my finger injury (waiting for it to heal a bit), but why hasn't anyone else entered? C'mon, share us your tasty food concoctions!

Unfortunately, I still have the same problem I have always had with these kinds of contests. :-??

So, what's cookin' ??

Nuthin', it seems. :(

From my side... Well, I hope to finally get money on my account today which will unlock it, so that I can actually buy something a bit more extravagant than the very basic stuff I've been living off for the last almost two weeks. :( Then I could make something of an entry, but no idea if I can already get to it today.

Also, where's DnE when you need him??
