The Simoun Caption Contest

Post by The_A_Man on Fri Sep 10, 2010 6:19 pm

Welcome to the Simoun Caption Contest! The rules are pretty simple, make up a caption for the provided Simoun screen shot. You may post as many captions as you wish. After a certain amount of time, the contest will be closed and a winner will be decided. But as for how the winner will be decided, I'm not sure of yet. Would you guys rather have anyone being able to vote or would you rather have someone be a judge? Also I'm not sure what the winner would get. On other forums I've been on, the winner would get to post the next screen shot to be captioned, but their isn't really any source of Simoun screen shots on the web if you can't make your own. I just that will be decided on too.

Now let's get this started. Heres the first sceen shot to caption:



I'll get started with my own caption.

Neveril: Um, I think we may have taken a wrong turn somewhere...

I will think of a caption in a bit. However, I did want to comment on the screenshot thing Adam mentioned. I have episodes 1-13 properly capped and saved so I can always pull any cap from my files for those episodes. They were the eps I was able to complete before Summer of Simoun ended. And those who know me, there are always quite a few hundred caps for the episodes...

Well that would be great for future contests.

As for deciding a winner, I think I may have thought of a good method. Why don't we run each contest for a week. At the end of the week, I'll close the contest and the new one will open up. The winner will be decided by the person who won the previous week. Since this is the first week of the contest, I will decide the winner for this week.

Also if we do manage to get a screenshot gallary up, do you guys think the winner should also be able to choose the image for the next contest as well?

We can't put up a screenshot gallery because no free sites have unlimited photosharing. Each episode cap folder is around 200 MB in size or higher. I have cap preview folders on photobucket, but they have no more than 20 images in them.

Well then I guess when a new contest starts, you can just post a random image then. Maybe in the future we'll be able to work something else out.

Anyways, moving back on to captioning...

Niviril: Are you sure it's a good idea to be standing up like this when we've so high up in the air?

Amuria: Calm down, Niviril, we're both main characters. There's no way they'd kill either one of us off, and in the first episode no less.
