I had the first bum avatar.

I actually really like this idea, and a thread tag design contest has been on my “to-do” list for a long time.

I would also support an E-Peen for winners, despite what MCB says. People who don’t speak English as a first language might have a hard time with a writing contest (except Aldo), so why can’t we reward a specialized skill with a token Peen?

Anyway, there are a couple things to address before going ahead with this: Namely, we don’t have that much space to display tags, so first we’d have to retire some. Three levels of bugs are obviously not needed (they’re a holdover from the days when we used Flamebate as a bug-tracking system), and I’ll ask ET to generate a report to see which are the least-used ones.

Then, I think we should all brainstorm about which ideal new tags to institute. They could be subject to general win/fail voting, committee voting, polling, or some combination thereof.

Beyond prettifying our existing tags, I think it’s more important to have more useful tags to play with. And while some of our tags are kind of ugly, they’re at least reasonably consistent. So no matter what we do, I think we should keep consistency in mind.

Admins are not ignoring anyone’s suggestions, but we have certain priorities and only so many hours in the day. If someone (or a group of Flamebate citizens) wanted to take on this contest as a project, and if it’s executed well, it would be very much appreciated and CZ would support it with Peen and BP.

As you can see, there’s a lot of differentiation between topic usage in CD and RP (only public threads were counted for this). It might be worthwhile to come up with two sets of thread topics, one for CD, one for RP.

Yes. Two sets.

Why can’t you have one of your apprentices run the contest?

It would be a good fit for Inconnu, with his extensive design experience.

Edit: and Angry Hobo, if he were willing to help.

I don’t want to make anyone run a contest against their will, but if anyone from the Apprentice team is interested, then they’re welcome to take it on.

Keep in mind I’ll also be tapping the Apprentice team (read: Inconnu) to help design a crapton of new thread tags for all of Episode 3’s forums.

Then have a mod run it. It doesn’t make sense to have some random forum person do it. It’s not even something that should take whoever makes the thread a lot of work.

Well, we did have one volunteer from the community: ghax.

However, we’re going to give it to the Apprentices anyway. Be on the lookout for a very special new gimmick alt.

Aaaaah thanks. That was a close one!

Can we keep SPORTS as long as I update it to flash? I am scared to lose it because it’s on the “not used” list. Log in to see images!

lmfao ghax, God bless ‘im.

Golly, I wonder who would be an Apprentice willing to make gimmick alts for contests. Seems kind of cheesy to me.

Yes, this is such a surprise that instead of telling him to ask his apprentices, I was going to say, “Just ask Shii or something.” Log in to see images!
