Sorry if this is posted in the wrong spot, I bet it is...

Anyway, I am thinking of hosting a small contest, with a prize other than XP on the forums.

Send in any ideas.
Thanks.

You could give the winner a heart and a pat on the back? I've got nothing.

But hearts are for friends or people who you like as a creator...

Hmm, this is so difficult!

Heh, I wish.

I like the custom made sticker idea...

Here's a few ideas that I came up with meantime.

-Offer assistance for work-in-progress level for the winner
-Offer a Template for my level 'Sun Lander' (based on Moon Lander by I_P1NKY_I)
-Help promote your levels (unsure on how I could do this so far)

Please give me more ideas, or vote on your favorite. Thanks and have a great day!

I can help you with the promote their levels. I have an HD PVR that can record anything on my PS3 in HD. I also have a Youtube account for it. Don't believe me? :P Check this out: http://www.youtube.com/user/LBPlanet2Logic?feature=mhee

a new PS3! A big screen TV? A ps3 game? The Vita!
a custom sticker it is!

I can't just pull a big screen tv out from nowhere!

I think making the winner's premier level publicized would be the best. And I could offer my advice to them, too.

What about the contest theme/what they make?

Ideas:
-Steampunk Level
-Adventure Level
-30 sec. Cutscene Short
-Specific Object Contest

Send in ideas for those now, or vote for one of my ideas.

As prizes go, there is a variety. I do agree that you can't get much with XP, the best thing is to use it to get stuff from other members but I don't really see any 'XP' shops. You can always mail something, but then it could end up costing a lot and all, and if you just don't wanna mail it, that's cool too. If you were too though, Morgana had a contest once, after going to PAX, and gave awaystuff she got there, like sackperson dolls and T-shirts, although if you were to do something like that, make sure you list the sizes!

Anyway though, there's also PSN codes. You could send a 10/20 dollar code to the winner via PSN message, LBPC PM, E-mail, etc., although cards are usually region-locked, so the codes would be too, so you'd have to say the country the card came from.

That's about all the ideas I've got for prizes, as for a contest, I'm not too sure, although I've been planning one for a month now to start in the beginning ov November, so maybe the idea I've got can give some inspiraiton.

Thanks for the tip, the code isn't a bad idea!

I'm still looking for in-game prizes though.

I now have an idea.
The prize and contest will be announced soon!
Thanks for all the input and tips, guys! It really helped!

Clothing, a pencil, a 10 dollar PSN card, an Ultimate Game Card, a nipple, stuff animal, fruit basket, or a cactus. Make sure you mail it..
