Caption Contest
Banner By SSK1911

Welcome, one and all, to the first Special Event of the season! The WAR leaders have designed these events to excite, as well as challenge your mind, body and soul!

The special events will be different from regular sections in six ways:

1. Each event will combine two or more sections.
2. Points will be awarded by the judges of the combined sections, and a WAR leader.
3. The events will each last exactly two weeks. When one event ends, another will begin.
4. Before each event, the teams will be randomly paired up into "Alliances". If one team in an alliance gets a point, the other team will get one, too.
5. Teams are encouraged to work together, and can post as many entries as they want.
6. The winning alliance wins 5 points. That means BOTH teams in that alliance gain 5 points each.

Got all that? Good. Now down to business. The first event is a Caption Contest. It combines the Creative Writing Section with the Art Section. Teams must first create a Pokémon related picture, then come up with a creative caption for it.

The Alliances for this event are:
Ciborg And Team Soul
The Assassin Guild And The Puppeteers
Dark And The Brotherhood Of Steel

The Judges will be:
SSK1911, Marill, and...ME!
(Judges are not allowed to help their teams.)

Now you know the rules, and the challenge...GET TO WORK, YOU HIPPIE! The deadline for entries is the end of Saturday, July 2nd.

Whoot! This is my kind of Event. A combination of the Art section and Creative Writing section?! This is going to be very, very interesting. Good luck to all participants!

That's cool. I'll have to find Neo and stuff.

Also, may I ask that you fix my tam's name? There is no "Team" in DARK. It's just DARK. I'll use Matthew's team as an example. His team is an acronym too, and he has his name correct, so please fix mine too. Thanks.

Edit: Oh, and Fair, SKs Banner is slices. Please go back to where you got that from and get all the pieces of the image. It looks weird this way. :eh:

Ok, I've removed the "Team" from it. And, I'm not sure what you mean about SSK's banner... On my computer, it looks just fine.

I have a question, does the caption have to be on the image or is it seperate from the image?

You're going to have to find somebody to replace me as the third judge for this event.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Caption: Storm clouds roll in the distance as a Nidoking and his two children stand in front of a giant Aggron. Having lost their mother to a previous battle, the kids huddle beside their father, battered and scarred from so many battles fought before. Now he stands tall once again to protect his family from any opposing threat.

Rachel AKA TotodileHop24 gets 100% of the credit. ^_^

Info: Neo made it and I came up with the caption. I wanted to do more, but I was off the net for another 2 or so days, so didn't have time to contribute on the actual art.

No where in the rules say that the groups have to work together. They're encouraged to, but they don't have to.

And if it's done any way else, what's the point of having team alliances?

Ok here:

Assassin Guild/The Puppeteers

Caption: In the midst of a ferious storm Nidoking stands his ground protecting his children and teritory from the giant Aggron. Battered and scared Nidoking stands high and mighty ready to fight to the death just as Nidoqueen had done to protect her family. Scared to death the two small children huddle infront of Nidoking hoping to be safe from harms way. Ready to fight Nidoking is ready for an all out war to protect what's left of his family.

It says teams not alliances.

And if it's done any way else, what's the point of having team alliances?

The point would be to have access to extra skills if needed. One team might not need the other's skills in that particular contest.

Also how do we know that everybody is telling the truth. What if VT didn't really write that caption, what if Shane didn't really right that caption, etc. If you ask VT or Shane or etc they'll say they wrote it even if they did or did not, because if they say they didn't the entry wouldn't qualify.

Yet I can prove myself since I have sent a PM to D.2 and he can show it. So don't go be saying I dont have proof.

I was just using you as an example don't think I'm accusing you of anything. :wink:

Um, Pidgeot. That link is incomplete and is missing the middle portion. It doesn't work.

It seems you copied and pasted it from a PM without actually getting the entire link by finding out the location. Just letting you know, since it's broken as is.

I thought this also. (no, not because I'm on his team :rolleyes: )
4. Before each event, the teams will be randomly paired up into "Alliances". If one team in an alliance gets a point, the other team will get one, too.
5. Teams are encouraged to work together, and can post as many entries as they want.

to me, that says we don't have to work together in order to win. so I see no problem entering something that wasn't done by working as a team. The idea is to work together so that the entries are better than if only one team submitted it, but you don't have to. "encouraged" is a strong word and is not the same as "required". ah, the power of a single word. :biggrin:

Lol, trust me, I know the truth.

You know Rachel's entry is kickass and it's totally a surefire win, despite lack of any contribution for the rest of you. As for the rest of us... we're jealous she's on your team and not ours.

Amen to that. :goofy:

Xx; So what happens now? Ssk has dropped out from being a judge, and Fair isn't here to give his 2 cents. Who's going to fill their shoes?

You could just do it on your own Marill, it shouldn't be that hard to judge.

True D.2, but I don't think it would be fair for me to have the final say on my own. I think we should at least have 1 other judge. Besides, I don't want the burden of people disagreeing with my choice. I know nothing of the quality of pictures, just of words. I'm only 1/2 of what the competition needs to have judged.
