    Would you enter a UO Comic Writing Contest?

    Entries could be as short as 1 panel, or as long as an Comic from UO Thief, Online Game Tales, or ImaNewbie. They could be real occurences in game or just something great you wrote up.

    The Winning entry would receive a substantial prize.

    I ask because it's something under consideration and I'd like to gauge the potential interest in such a contest.

    No, because I have zero creativity.
    But I would enjoy reading the submissions.

    people wouldn't enter a contest with a substantial prize that could be as simple as posting a funny screenshot?

    There could be any number of reasons, really.
    I wouldn't personally enter it because I'm hesitant to enter any contest as a Stratics Staff Member. Whatever the outcome, there's be too much room for a cry of foul, and not causing a ruckus in the communities is worth more to me than whatever the prize may be :)
    Also, I wouldn't know where to start, and in the unlikely event that I could settle on an idea, I'd likely never finish to my satisfaction (I spent far too many hours on a Talents of Sosaria entry I never got happy enough with to submit).

    But, I didn't vote.
    "Yes" would have been a lie, but "no" would project an unfairly negative impression.
    I think you should totally do it :)

    I answered No, but I'd love to read other people's stuff.

    I would doubt stratics would get special treatment if I ended up hosting the contest.. :p

    Personally, I just think we have a lot of untapped creativity. I've seen, over the years, the community shift from main stream things like comics to very small niche things like lore.

    I'd like to see more from the community that appeals to main stream gamers.

    That's all a matter of perspective.

    I didn't mean to imply that such would happen.
    It's just my way to avoid the possibility wherever possible :)

    I'm rather partial to the lore thing. I like it when a fair amount of the soul of game comes from the fans.
    I do agree though that, in the past we had a bunch of comics (the names of which I won't list, since I've forgotten so many it'd be embarassing) and a load of other stuff. It seems kind of like the creative soul's pretty much gone from the community, so this thing gets a :thumbup: from me (only more genuine than the smilie seems to imply).
