Contest Prize

So I was thinking that as an added incentive to participate I would put an actual prize into play. Perhaps an Agori or two... The problem is how to mail those out to the winners without compromising any information... If anyone has ideas how to do that please write back, otherwise prizes just won't happen.

I have a prize. The winner of this contest will get his self-MOC made by me, and put in my stopmotion videos from here on out. How does that sound?

And if by some strange chance I am the winner, I'll put the 2nd guy's MOC in, and won't get a prize. I just like contesting for the sake of it, prizes or no. :)

Interesting idea, I like it! Hey, don't be hard on yourself, you could win! You've got a good idea, I'll use it, but for future reference, is there a way to get someones info without compromising them, so as to mail out a prize, if needed?

E-mailing Information could work.


Ahh yes, i thought of that, but the problem is how to obtain one's e-mail without letting others see the address, in order to keep anyone from being spammed/harassed/virused ect.

make a private group. Invite the winner and delete group afterwards. Simple (for a nerd like me XD)

Well, if you plan on more contest's i would say just delete members, then you could hand out prizes and still be safe, whatever the prize.

Actually... the stopmotion won't get going for a few months yet (I want to get my GCSE exams out of the way first) BUT I will draw a charicature of someone's self MOC if they prefer. I'm quite fond of drawing. I'd have posted some of them up, but I lost my pad >.>

Well then how 'bout this: We save your idea for a bit, maybe for next contest, when that rolls around, and then use it, but in the mean time we'll just throw some Agori out there, or whatever, something of that ilk, and not compromise your scores, okay Gringat?

I don't think its fair that you should give one of your bionicles away to the winner. Maybe every one who enters should get a small agori and somehow put all together to make a large prize of small bionicles for the winner...


Alas, my meager financial income does not allow for such a thing to be done, although it would be nice. It wouldn't really be "my bionicles" I would just go out and buy one. I wish i could supply every entrant with a small prize, but I already have 5 entries and am expecting at least 5 more, that's 10 entries, and with Agori going for $8 a piece...well you can do the math...

No, I meant that everyone who enters should do the same thing that your doing (going out and bying an agori) and then put it all together to make a large prize for the winners (1st, 2nd, 3rd) that way everyone is contributing to the overall winning prizes. Sorry I wasn't very clear.


Oh, I understand now, but really, it's okay, I don't mind just buying a few prizes, and it'd be REALLY hard to convince people to spend their money for a relatively small contest. I wish I could use your idea, it's a good one, but not really doable.
