Poll Question:
(((HC's Got Talent)))

Hello everyone!

I think that its about time that HC members were given a new outlet for their creativity, skills, and talents. So, I propose to you all that we hold a Talent Competition pitting whoever joins, against one another (1 vs 1), until we crown a champion!

I have set up this Poll because I would like to know what the interest level in such a game would be, before I commit my time & effort into setting the whole thing up. Therefore, please vote honestly and feel free to share any suggestions/comments that you may have.

To give you a brief idea of how things would work (yes...I have actually given this some thought ), I will now go through the main points of the game with you quickly:
-This Thread will act as the "Sign-up Sheet", where HC members who are interested in participating will have to throw in their name and list the talent that they will be showing off (ex: writing...RSF/Shadowcaster?, signing...2Xtreme?, modelling...Iris?), doing Pixelart....Woock/T-A?).

-The sign-up period will last 2 weeks so that everyone has a chance to think about their talent and also to give HC members, who were away for the summer, a chance to return & get settled in.

-Once the sign-up is finished, this Thread will be sent to the VW and an official "HC's Got Talent" game Thread will be started, here in the Tavern.

-I will act as the GameMaster (and luckily for you all, will not be a contestant ). I will be deciding the matchups, setting up the necessary Voting-Threads in the VW, maintaining the Game Thread, determining the time-frames, sending the IMs, harassing the Mods for QPs, and will also be acting as a JUDGE.

-As a JUDGE, I will offer the contestants advice to improve the way they present their talent and will also vote for a winner, in the case of a tie. All HC members (except for the contestants in the immediate head-to-head) will be able to vote for whichever contestant had the most/best/unique talent.

-Winners of the 1st round will move ahead in the competition, while those who lose will drop down to a Consolation Group. The winner of this group, will then have a second chance to join back with the competition at the Semi-Final stage. (This is being done to give every contestant more than 1 opportunity to show their stuff. )
Alright, I'm stopping with the details before I have an aneurysm. So, just sign up, vote or whatever...

Only thing I'm confident in is my gaming skills.  

MightyMage and I have a SCIII match coming up at some point (unless he backs out ).  Don't know how that can be incorporated though.  If.

Here is a song that I uploaded to my website.
It is not very good, but this is a nice small one (so I would not have to wait forever until it finishes uploading)
My Song
It is not finished yet by the way, and I might try uploading one of my 4 minute songs or something.
I hope you like this song, I know it is bad but still, I have not finished making this one yet
I just picked this because it is small, I picked it from 163 unfinished songs that I have yet to finish/improve upon until they are perfect.
I will post when I have uploaded another, more better song.

EDIT: Just added another short song, had to decrease quality with it though, so it would be quicker upload.

EDIT #2: Just added a 3rd song, though it is small and unfinished, it is still pretty good and I think can develop into a really good song.

I do hope you like these, and maybe feedback or you can rate my songs at the site.

William...

You might want to wait until the actual competition begins before giving away all of your secrets. Not to mention that this Thread will eventually end up in the VW and furthermore, deleted.

As the game's Judge, I suggest that you work on your talent contest submission for the next 2 weeks, in order to make sure that it is a good one.
As for you, FoG...I don't think it would be a good idea for me to join in the same competition that I am running. Not only because I would assuredly be victorious in the end , but also because allowing the person who has the power to break a "tied vote" to compete against other members, might insinuate a conflict of interest.

I can see a way around this problem, however. If I were able to enlist the aid of a Moderator to act as the "tie-breaker", when necessary, it would allow me to not only run the game itself, but also to participate in it!

I warn you, though, BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR FoG!

P.S. I don't know what your talents are, so you might want to vote & tell us how you will attempt to entertain HC's members.

I'm not quite sure if I understand this, but okay. Sign me in.

Talents: Definetely pixelart. I also like to think that I'm fairly good at game design, but I dunno how this fits in. Perhaps writing, or origami?

Oh bummer, I guess I am not as cool as Woock and his origami/pixel artist skills but I like to show off my talent on the warm smelly court, shoving and grabbing other hairy sweaty guys who for some reason can't find 5$ to spend on a deodorant eventually once in 5 minutes getting a shot up... Yep that's basketball baby

But how am I supposed to compete with that? Besides basketball and smashing all the buttons when playing Smackdown VS RAW I am truly talentless...

...



I know maybe I could show you my awesome talent in making girls fall in love with me I just need a volunteer...

Hmmmm...

Please
click and help me out!! Thanks!!

I just thought of something...

Depending on how many people sign up for the talent contest, we could do this thing by weekly elimination, as we did in the WANTED game...instead of having a "do or die" process.

Following this format:

-HC Members would vote for a contestant by sending me an IM (in order to build suspense ).

-If one or more contestants did not submit an entry by the deadline, they would be immediately eliminated (unless they gave me a valid reason).

-The contestant with the least votes, @ the end of the competition period, would be eliminated.

-If there was ever a tie between contestants with the lowest vote total, then a seperate vote between these individuals would be held. [Meaning that HC members would have to choose between one or the other, or the third person if there was one.]

-In this situation, there is no need for a Judge...although I would certainly offer my assistance & suggestions...and I would have less work to do in general, as the GameMaster.
As for people who aren't sure HOW to present their talents (i.e. basketball, gaming, game/web design, etc.), you have 2 weeks to figure it out with your bountiful creativity & resourcefulness. I can also imagine that finding an interesting way to show HC members your talent might win you a few more votes...and possibly even a QP or 2.
