<Snipped quote by ArenaSnow>
Consistent problem with previous contests was that they were too literate for the actual playerbase. I am all for super literate contests but when you exclude 95% of the active community you are left with a possible 5% that is probably not even interested. Introducing 'simpler' art like screenshots, art, music, poems, or shortform stories, is a good way of introducing people at least, so I agree with you.
I was just throwing these alternate contests out there as a way of providing future ideas. I suppose the hard part is getting started now (and since it's just Frizan doing this.. it'll be harder).
Starting big I can't see going anywhere... except right where the forum is now. Again, I'd be willing to help with the initial startup, but it's not really up to me if I'd have that kind of ability, and I'm not sure what Frizan really plans on that count.
So I think I'll rest my case and wait.
