Hey there, MegaTeners!
This contest has now ended. We will make another blog post later today, once we’ve redeemed the prizes for the winners of the event. We appreciate your overwhelming interest!
You rocked our baboon butts with the You Tell Us! questionnaire. We got five times as many participants as we expected. This flailing monkey really loves you! We’ll send out the rewards to the winners during today’s maintenance, then wrap everyone’s feedback in pink tissue paper and glittery ribbons for our management team.
Now it’s time to celebrate this overwhelming success with a bigger and better event!
We’ve gotten bunches of short story entries from the MegaTen community, despite our lackluster choices for rewards. For those of you who didn’t want to enter because, “Eww, cameo,” here’s another opportunity to bust out your writing skills!
Reply to this thread with a haiku that incorporates one or more of the following words:
Taken from dictionary.com: hai·ku, non, a major form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing highly evocative allusions and comparisons, often on the subject of nature or one of the seasons.
Only one entry per player, please! Make sure to include your e-mail in your comment. Feel free to deviate from themes of nature, even if it’s non-traditional. Contest ends next Demon Diary, 5/30, at 11:00 A.M., PDT.
Thanks to all the feedback we received, we’ve rewarding the winners with…
Incense of Mastery!
Prize amounts are determined by how many entries we receive. It’s tiered in two ways:
- 1 prize for every 10 entries (ex., 1-10, 1 prize; 11-20, 2 prizes; etc.), max 15 prizes
- 1 incense for every 30 entries (ex., 1-30, 1 incense per winner; 31-60, 2 incense per winner; etc.), max 5 incense per winner
So the more the community participates, the bigger the reward! Spread the word. We could end up giving away 75 incenses if we get 150 entries! Also, we totally heard your call for Ariadne Thread, but that starred in What’s Your Codename. Alas!
We look forward to your submissions.
