Title: Titles for regulars
Post by: xiagan on May 30, 2014, 10:04:27 AM
Hello all! :)

I thought about a special reward/indicator for those of you who participate regularly in our writing contest.
I came up with the custom title "Writing Contest Regular" which I'm awarding everybody who has five (or more) submissions in our contests.

I'm counting from when I took over the contest in Dec2013, so at the moment (already counting May) you need to have five submissions in six contests to get the title.
Pretty hard but three of you already made it! Congrats to Carter, TOMunro and Maxfield! :D
(LisaElle, if you submit in the next few days, you will get it too. ;))

A lot of you took part in two or three contests, hopefully this motivates you to stay with us.

(If you don't want the title displayed next to your user name, please say so and I won't add it.)

Hall of Fame:
- Carter
- TOMunro
- Maxfield
- LisaElle
- Elfy
- Saraband
- Giddler
- Alex Dutson
- Jmacyk
- Saurus & Raptori
- SJ Budd
- RussetDivinity
-ArcaneArtsVelho
- Rukaio Alter
- Nora
- Doctor Chill
- wakarimasen
- D_Bates
- Henry Dale
- OnlyOneHighlander
- ClintACK

I like that xiagan. I think it's a good initiative and may prompt people to enter more regularly. I'd still have to do 2 more entries to quality and it does very much depend on how the topic hits me and what the recalcitrant plot bunny thinks of it.

Our newest regular is ArM! Congratulations! :D

Eta: Hm, not sure why the title isn't showing up. Either you have opted for now titles showing in your options or (more likely) custom titles aren't displayed for new members and you need more posts (ten in total probably)....

Congratulations to the most recent regular writing couple!!! :D

Actually, to the only regular writing couple... to the most recent title winner... hehehe


** I wanted to ask, not sure if it's the right place: how does it work? one with ideas, the other with the actual words? split paragraphs? changing things in the background?

Just a little reminder that Saurus still doesn't have her title, and that it should be "Raptori & Saurus" in the list here.  :)

Now, of course, I'm picturing my berner (Hagrid, seen at left) getting a papillon and taking him for a walk around the block.

Surely the internet knows what I mean...

I was picturing something like:

No, no. Don't be fooled.

Clint ACK = Clint (dog name) American Cennel Klub.

I mean, Clint American Kennel Club.

The source of scads of really, really bad license plate puns.

here, i always thought it was ClintACK "delivery guaranteed" vs. ClintNoACK "drop yo' packets, dawg!"

p.s.  nerd humor.

Congrats! We should totally have a hierarchy of titles based on how many times you've participated, just like the post count titles.  :D
I like that idea. Bring forth the ideas!

Highest rank is 'Carter'. ;)

I guess the first step would be to work out how many entries each person has made, or at least how many the person with the most has, so we can decide how many levels there should be. That... could take some time. (http://liberalforum.net/images/smilies/blink.gif)

Go on... you *know* you want to create an excel file for that ;D

I'm worryingly tempted to create a google doc that lists them all. Including the number of votes. (http://www.zsoc.com/images/smilies/zsoc/serious.gif)

Alrighty then. Here it is. (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1B3PIquIJ--9JERBI-WDMtcCVjAS5PivvC-8JBQAmbts/) All the votes since the first contest in January 2011 compiled into one spreadsheet. (http://www.zsoc.com/images/smilies/zsoc/serious.gif)

Total number of contestants: 220.
Total number of entries: 492.
Total number of contestants with more than one entry: 81.

@Elfy (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1153) and @Carter (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=31908) are far and away the most prolific authors, with 19 apiece. @Elfy (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1153) managed to enter 17 in a row between May 2014 and September 2015. @TOMunro (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=31792), @Jmack (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=37094), and myself & Saurus are the others with 10 or more. The trend that makes me happiest is that people who have entered recently seem a huge amount more likely to stick around and enter multiple times. I think that's credit to @xiagan (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1148) for running such a great contest. (http://boincstats.com/image/emoticon/happy.gif)

I've highlighted the winner(s) of each contest in green as well. Only 11 authors have won more than once:
3 times: @TOMunro (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=31792), @Jmack (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=37094), @ladygreen (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=31689)
2 times: @Rukaio_Alter (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=40087), @Giddler (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=32893), @simonster (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=13723), @GZidar (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=703), @OnlyOneHighlander (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=35404), Dan D Jones, @wishywash27 (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=4124), @Shanothaine (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=404)

Interestingly, a total of 16 entrants with only one entry won the contest they entered. (http://liberalforum.net/images/smilies/blink.gif)


I'll be surprised if there are no mistakes in there... and I think I'm going to go lie down now. (http://www.en.kolobok.us/smiles/artists/just_cuz/JC_see_stars.gif)

This is gonna need some more work.  :P
We need the themes added and the votes summed.  8)

But, THIS IS AWESOME fun!  ;D ;D

And somehow, @xiagan (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=1148), we have to sticky this spreadsheet for further and future reference.  ;)

Done.

Votes get their own row (greyed out so they're easier to differentiate from the entries), themes are visible in a note popup when you click the month name. I also added the names of the winner(s) to that note. (http://boincstats.com/image/emoticon/happy.gif)

Oh, and in case nobody noticed, the month (and a couple of the year) names are linked to the correct subforum. Working with spreadsheets is weirdly relaxing.

Clearly, I need to work harder.

That's amazing, @Raptori, but how do you think I managed the contests without something like that? How should I have found out who is a new regular every month? ;)
Title: Titles for regulars
Post by: xiagan on October 07, 2015, 08:38:08 AM
Admittedly yours is way fancier and more complete. :)
 I only had the entries and wins listed and I didn't start that early because the contest was quite erratic from time to time.

Yeah I assumed you had, but I think you mentioned only keeping records from when you started running the contest, and I wanted one right from the beginning.  :P

As someone who has been known to dabble in spreadsheets myself, @Raptori (ftp://Raptori), I salute you. 

And also much praise @xiagan (ftp://xiagan) as you say for running an excellent contest that keeps on drawing us writers back, I'm just sorry that dearth of muse and excess of day job mean I can't enter as often as I would like.  :)

(I hope I've got those link things right  :-\)
