View Full Version : Possible Future Contests?

Hey there folks, Vertigo here.

Just wanted to throw a question out there today about LBPC and the future for site contests.

I'm well aware that LBPC16 was labled as "the final contest", which was very sad to see, and I'm gutted I wasn't around to partake.

I feel contests are a great way to keep the community going and keep some spirit within LBP3, so...

Are there any plans on running contests in the future on LBPC?

It's a sad reality, but this fan site is the last one left in existence that has a pin in-game. Even if the contests were small little challenges that offered a pin or a cap, I feel it could just give the site and the wider community that extra bit of activity.

Just a small question, I appreciate any replies.

Working in the contest crew was a ton of fun, I wouldn’t mind keep doing it. Honestly, I have so many fond memories with that and the terrific friends I’ve made through the spotlight crew! Though, it’s really not my decision.

I feel like the only hope that ANY remaining fan site forums would possibly have would be a new LBP game.. even that doesn’t mean that people will simply flock back to old forums that may not even exist anymore.

All in all, we’ll just have to wait and see what the future brings, fingers crossed! ;)

Any site can run whatever contest they want. I just doubt there is much interest at this point. We have such little traffic and to be honest, I just made the last payment for this site. I have happily paid for it the last many years and I just don't wish to continue paying for it any longer, nor do I wish to do all the upgrades needed to keep it running. Yup.. it is that time.

I also don't see the traffic nor do I see the people needed to run, judge and participate in such a contest.

You may prove me wrong of course, but I suggest Dreamsverse for that and wish you all the best. :)

It was fun while it lasted. When will this site cease?

Ah... oh well.
This is the nature of fan-sites. I enjoyed the fun times, y'all. :)
I'll see whichever of you migrate to Dreams fansites. Or at the very least, on Twitter (that's where I go now-a-days).

I'm for it, I have enough free time as a site member.

However other site members have way too less time and there really wouldn't be too many entries for such a contest. Earlier there were like 100 entries for a contest, the last one had like 10-20ish (I don't quite remember it tbh).

So yeah, I have enough time, but others don't and it wouldn't be worth it to me personally. Also, Big F in the chat. Thanks for keeping LBPC online for this long, JWW. I want to see you in Dreams, mate.
