To commemorate this website’s first year in existence, I’m holding a contest to boost participation in the forums.
Starting on February 12th, and ending on March 1st, members can gain points by doing various things on the site. The three people who gain the most cubepoints by the March 1st deadline will receive the following prizes:
- First Place Winner – Final Fantasy III CIB
- Second Place Winner – A Link to the Past Cart Only
- Third Place Winner – SNES Player’s Guide
This is what you can do to earn points:
Making a new topic = 5 points
Posting on existing topics = 4 points
Creating a poll = 3 points
Voting in a poll = 1 point
Making a comment on a review or article page = 3 points
Registering between February 12th thru March 1st = 10 points
Writing something in the biographical info section plus uploading an avatar on the main profile page = 20 points
Submitting a suitable original review or article for the site = 25 points
1) The Administrator and Staff Writer’s points are automatically disqualified from contest competition.
2) Points will not be awarded to one, two, or three word posts such as ‘thank you’, ‘awesome!’, ‘I think so’ or smiley replies.
3) No trolling, racism, or harassing other members allowed.
With all that being said, I believe this site has the potential to be a special place. I hope as you’re exploring and participating on the site, you can see it too.
Here are the current leaders of SNES Hub’s 1st anniversary contest! Remember only the top three people will receive a prize.
Good luck to everyone, and may the best person win.
They are all superb prizes. Well done Masamune, I genuinely hope your efforts are rewarded.
I do too Ghost.
FINAL FANTASY CIB?!?!?!?!?!?! I remember when I got mine LOL!
Boy THAT was a bidding war!
Never played it so to see a CIB one… it’s looking enticing I can tell you. 🙂
Ill stay out of this one, but you Masamune must be a bit nuts.. thats like $150+ all together? not considering shipping costs..
What a coincedence! This contest starts the day after my birthday. Just want to say, this is an awesome present for not just me, but for the whole forum
I’m very excited about this contest. I’m glad to see others that still appreciate the SNES.
Have to admit that I want 1st place, but I have been looking for a great snes community for a while now!
Heard about this contest on GameFAQs. Very exciting. I’m enjoying the forum discussions as well!
Rush, what is your name on GFAQs?
Whoa, t3tr1s is starting to run away with it!
Congrats to t3tr1s. I will be surprised if anyone catches him. The other prizes are still top-notch and anyone’s game.
rush, what can I say? I really want that game lol. and a slow day at work!
It’s a great prize. The Map alone is awesome!
The contest doesn’t end until March 1st, so there is plenty of time for people to make a comeback for 1st place!
wow those prizes are amazing to have in anyone’s gaming collection.
How can you tell how many points you have?
Go to the forum. You will be able to see how many points you have on the upper left hand side of the forum page. You can also see how many points you have when you make posts in the forum in your member info section.
Staff Writers can’t compete?! And my coworker won’t shut up about how much he loves Final Fantasy III.
Must say, with the 25th anniversary of the Final Fantasy this year, this is a fitting prize.
Has it really been 25 years? Where does the time go…
Time stops for no man! 25 years is older than me, which makes me feel… Young 🙂
t3tr1s, I hope you have your mailing info ready to go, I have a feeling you’ll be winning this thing
Lol, are you sure t3tr1s isn’t a Staff Writer? 🙂 No fair play you’ve really made the effort.
I’m just trying to be as active as possible, yeah.. I’m looking to win hopefully!
I just hope the enthusiasm doesnt go *poof* once the competition is over.
wish u luck t3tr1s
I changed a couple of things regarding points. Firstly, you can gain 20 points for jotting in some biographical info and uploading an avatar on the main profile page, which can be accessed by hovering your mouse over the “Howdy” phrase in the upper right hand corner of the screen and selecting edit my profile.
Secondly, I changed the number of points you can earn by submitting an original review or article from 12 points to 25 points.
Thank you for the changes, Masamune.
That’s a fair change for the reviews.
yes, I initially thought that reviews and articles should be worth much more than that… I think they should be at least worth 50 points.
Thanks for the updates Masamune. My profile now has some info.
Just to let you guys know, I’m gonna be dropping out of the contest. Not because I’m a sore loser or anything like that, but this contest IMO is for the new users in mind.
How can I drop out of the contest?
I just took you out as well.
GhostSweeper is surging into contention!
🙂 U serious dude, look at those points.
Hey, folks! Just heard of this site from the Digitpress forums.
Dunno if I’ll actually be actively participating in this contest but I figured I’d post some here, anyway.
Welcome Kiddo. This website has much more to offer than this contest. There’s a lot of great content to look through and things to discuss. If you explore the site and forum, you’ll see.
Welcome bud. Feel free to express yourself and enjoy the site.
We’re on the home stretch now. Will t3tr1s win by a wide margin ro a super-wide margin? We’ll have to wait and see!
I’m no expert, but I’m going to say yes.
Great site. Just discovered it.
Not too wide of a margin
Haha, with two day left you’re basically a lock! Congrats!
A little over 24 hours left. We’re in the final stretch!
Congratulations t3tr1s, RushDog and Kanto. Private Message me your shipping addresses so I can send your prizes.
