Ideas needed for New DT Contest...
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 08-10-03 , 03:52 PM


Hey everyone!
As mentioned in a previous post a little while ago, I plan on hosting my own, first contest here on DT in early Sept., and it will be for 2 items. Both will be jewelry goodies, and once I can take a picture of them, then it will be revealed what they are (just a little teaser for everyone! )
....Now my question is...I notice most contests are to pick a number, and the closest number wins...would ppl. prefer that as a new contest, or an essay, or another format, or a mixture of both? Any and all ideas needed.
Thanks everyone, have a happy Sunday!

P.S. Also, if anyone has a link as to how to post a picture on DT, that would be excellent (I will be using my webcam, so I believe it will be saved on my computer). Thanks!

I love the idea of any contest, hellokitties! But the one problem with essay-types is that it's so subjective. The person holding the contest must have a very difficult time judging the entries, and ultimately deciding whose (usually very personal) story is "best."

OK, I shall stick to the guessing numbers, then! I undderstand that an essay might be cumbersome, and too subjective, i want to keep it fair for everyone, so tha'ts what I shall do then.
Will Post the new contest when everything is ready! This is sooo much fun!

Have a good day, ^..^

How nice HelloKitties.

you will really have fun with it - I have only "hosted" a few contests and it is really so much fun

have yet to win one, but if I do I bet that would be fun too

I, however, do think the next contest I host will be an essay one. I have something very special in mind already, and when I get some dinero from this new job I am just starting I am going to pick out a really special prize to go with it. Or maybe I should just dig up some cash (how?? - I am not sure yet), pay off my bill at the dept. store I work and buy something nice while I still have the discount

I am so bad though, whatever I get I will probably end up getting one for myself too

no self-control here and DT certainly doesn't help!

Anyway - whatever you pick out will be great I am sure

yes, DT is sooo addictive, as I am finding out.. I will be away from DT, while we head back to Canada, then have to set up our internet stuff, for about 2 weeks!! how on earth will I manage that?!?!
I cannot wait to see your contest, I think essay ones are intriguing, for sure! But maybe, since it is my first dip into the world of DT contests, will keep it simple, then perhaps something a bit more creative later on!

btw, your contests were fun, and i am sure it is just a matter of time before the "contest fairy" visits you!

Adding: Kitty Kitty's contests, with the "Win a Wedding Gown" were so much fun to follow and admire how much work she put into it!

I just stumbled upon it actually..if you go to the top part of the screen, you will see the word "chat" (in between "Members" and "Calender")..what I did, even tough tit said otherwise, I tried logging in with my DT passpwrd and username (it says your password will not be the same as your DT one)~~ it failed ...no surprise...but then I checked my PM list, and in it, you get a temporary password from Diver. I have been using that temporary password to log into chat...I e-mailed him the one I want to use permanently, but have not heard back, so I just use my temporary one.
Hope to see you there!

Well, if i ever run a contest, there is going to be SKILL involved, and to heck with the whiners.
i'm going to be subjective as hell, because life ain't fair, and it's my own darned contest, and be as Machiavellian as my black flabby little heart desires!

I say do what you want, but be prepared for the consequences!

Instead of numbers, you could have folks pick a crayon color out of the Big Box of 164 Crayolas!
