Contests, we need piles of contests every month with the grand prizes being crowns. (Its coming up to LBP2 and not enough people have crowns we need a MASSIVE period of time to win them

I know other sites such as LBPW does contests but i HATE that sight :moody: its too hard to navigate the forums and the contests are always either on the 3rd or 4th round and they are always too confusing about what their rules are.

Add some contests PLEASE I need a crown :love:

If we start a crown contest every month this site would turn out like LBW, which I believe no one here wants to.

As for Crowns, LBPC hasn't actually done many for those. The only one I can think of is the online create one.

LBPC doesn't need to do contests, after all this isn't and LBP fan site, this is a site of people that just so happen to play LBP.
The majority of stuff that happens here has nothing to do with lbp.

Well I lie, the majority of threads are LBP thread but you know.

I don't know what I am talking about, do I have a tail?

Contests,

You want this site to add contests because you "need" a crown?
Im sure if you look around elsewhere you will find some other sites which may have competitions where the crown is a prize. Goodluck! :)

I disagree. Enough people have crowns, as they have become less rare as they once were.

Also, people who deserve crowns get them, you can't just want one and get it easily.

Most folks that want contests because they want enough to enter and win a crown. They don't want to run the contest.. they just want them so they have a shot at a prize. There are less folks that want to run contests as it is quite a bit of work... Personally, I just don't like the crown frenzy of winning one in a contest and never bothered entering any of them. To me it is more the thought that counts of getting one than to actually have one.

To be honest, if you do quite a bit of community work without even the thought of getting a crown, one will come your way one day. It may take quite awhile, but if you do something that Mm is constantly amazed by, you just might get a visit from Santa Spaff.

Trust me on this. ;)

And we all remember how that turned out right? Then there was the LBL contest where everyone kicked off because Mniska won, all the LBW crown contests where at least someone has a hissy fit every month just to give Steven and the other judges a headache....

Yeah, crown contests are just good clean fun for all the family :rolleyes:

@Rtm223: Mnniska definately deserved his crown, too!

Well, I don't have a crown, but there are other fun competitions to get involved with here. For example, there's the Caption Contest (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?36149-The-Caption-Contest-Round-43), the Pod Design contest (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?36177-The-Pod-Design-Contest-4) and if level comps are more your thing, check out Morgana25's Halloween Spooktacular (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?35752-Halloween-quot-Spooktacular-quot-Level-Design-Contest-2!) in Community Contests. That was mega good last year. The admiration and respect of the awesome LBPC community is as good a prize as a crown, in my opinion. Crown competitions are far too divisive for my liking. I'm glad we don't have many of them... it's unhealthy for the community.

Lies.


Personally, winning a crown from a contest isn't my thing. Lots of people get them that way. Not that i'm after a crown anyways. Costumes are not much of my thing, only three I ever use anyways.


So, IMO crown contests are meh.

Now I see why this site is so scared of hosting crown contests. It's true people will throw tantrums for not winning a piece of digital mechandise. I hate having to enter a contest just to get a crown.

Isn't there a such thing as someone receiving a crown for a level they made (not for a contest)? If so, name one or two.

Also, what other ways are there to win one? Not everyone has a crown (for those who are gloating on here) and, I've seen some hard workers on here that deserve one.

We're not scared of hosting them. And yes, there are other ways to get crowns other than competitions. Two cases here at LBPC - xkappax who was awarded a crown for an LBP related animation she made and Morgana25, for general excellence (I think that's what it was for - can't recall if there was a specific title attached... help, Morgana?). So competitions are definitely not the only way to get them. I'm sure there are plenty more examples than those I've offered.

Mm do not hand crowns out lightly (or frequently) and so, yes, there are plenty of people here and elsewhere in the LBP universe that deserve one, who may never get one. But that's why I don't think people should put too much stock in receiving one as proof of their worth as a creator. Creators who love what they do - and are good at it - shouldn't need crowns to feel that way.

Well, I don't have a crown

*Reads BabyDoll's title*

liar...
:p

Anywho on to my main points:

1 - In case most people saying "Not all have crowns I deserve one! DX" and so on, may I remind you the Crown is meant to be a rare item.
In case you don't understand, that means its not to be given out to everyone, what's the point of calling something "rare" if everyone has one? O_o
2 - Believe me, I know plenty people with Crowns, and I rarely see them wear it or use it, most say the Crown is no big deal.

And I mean sure you'll wear it lot at 1st, but then you'll just leave it in your inventory and forget it like if it was any other item most likely, I mean, how many actual costumes can be really made well with a crown?
Most people just prefer to use their regula costumes than to wear the crown m8.

So don't worry about it too much, I know it seems like a hughe deal, but I've seen it really isn't. :)

Its nice, sure, but nothing worth geting mad/ depressed about if you don't have one really...

Now since you 'really want contests" and seem to think they're so easy to organize, why don't you orginize some yourself?
I'm sure it'll be a breeze since you think these things are easy to do. :p

Sony will never contact you over PSN message, and they will never ask for you password. If you recieve any such message you should report the PSN ID.

That being said if you dont have the box ticked that allows emails from SCE then you wont be getting a crown I don't think.

EDIT: although in some cases I know codes will be PM'd over fan forums by contest hosts and over on the Playstation Forums.

I don't needs a crown, My mad hatter's hat is all I need on my head :p

Chances are, a crown won't go with your current costume anyway.

Here's to hoping they'll do prize medals in LBP2 !!

There could be crowns for big achievements and medals for smaller ones...
And I would have to create a whole new costume if I got a crown, and I would probably only wear it to show off... (soldiers with crowns look weird, and a crown doesn't offer much protection if a bullet hits me on the head...)

I wouldn't create a new costume, I would just put it on my current sackboy. That said I would never wear it.

I may have gave that vibe of though sorry...

Yes this thread was stupid but I was very new to the site then (Still am)

But now I've realised that normal competitions are GREAT fun i've entered piles and I don't really care about a crown anymore...

Well, too put it short and sweet, it's like saying "We should have a $1M dollars contest!"

As you can see, people will get greedy and start to fight over the money. And for what? To use it for a while only to be bankrupt sooner or later?

Nothing good comes from crowns. In all honesty, crown competitions should just be done with.

I don't desire a crown, nor do I think they have to be prizes for contests here, but I would like to see more contests. They're really great chances to show off the talent here at LBPC. Talent that I want to see showcased.

Maybe:
1. Seasonal Contests- In terms of a contest every three months, but NOT based upon the seasons... Ha! :p
Or
2. Two-Month Contests- Just a contest every two months.


The problems as said before, is that noone wants to run them and the Community Contest thread doesn't always get a ton of traffic. I ran a contest a while back, and it suffered (a little) because of the few entries and slower traffic. It lasted for almost 2 months, and got 4 short entries.

We need a better way to promote our contests, other than sigs and threads, and we just need some dedicated people to run them. We do have the XP system going for us now though... :)
