In the beginning...
There was SciFiQuest 2106
Created by a visionary noder
Who saw the potential of Science Fiction
And the gods
smiled upon it, and saw that it was good...
So they gave it 9 C!
But now, the time has come again. I
(with the kind sponsorship of kthejoker
) now present to you....
Beginning June 4, 2007 at 00:00:00 UTC (E2 Server Time)
Ending July 4, 2007 at 00:00:00 UTC
Our judges have been through the writeups. The winning factual is:
The Screwfly Solution, by Jet-Poop!
However, he did request that in the case he won, the prize should be given to the runner-up. So, the runner-up/winner is:
Triplanetary by SyntaxVorlon!
SyntaxVorlon, you win the grand prize of 500XP and homenod image privs for SIX MONTHS!
For those who didn't win (you guys still kick ass), your prizes are written next to your name below.
As with the original SciFiQuest, two types of entries will be accepted. They are:
As you know, we're pretty loose on terms with science fiction. This can go all the way from near-future diamond-hard all the way to Buck Rogers pulp sf and everything in between! Science Fiction Factuals have to be composed of facts about science fiction. Amazing, huh?
Also, the judging rules:
- Factuals will be judged by rep. And other things.
- Fiction? We don't judge it, we collect it. It's a matter of personal taste, eh?
* * * *
Of course, there will be wonderful XP rewards
for all the contributors. At the end of the quest, contributors will receive:
- 100 XP for each writeup submitted.
- 2 XP times the net total rep of your writeup by the end of the quest.
- And 20 XP for each C! your writeup gets.
Note: If you get negative rep
, the second point still applies. Muahahaha!
When the quest finishes, the author of the winning factual will receive these awesome prizes
If you already have a homenode image
? Congrats for getting to level 5. No, you don't get the power to have TWO homenode images
