Nominate the best posts on the forum and (maybe) win a prize - ongoing Front Page contest

post #1 of 228
Thread Starter 
Contest time. It’s been a while since we did these regularly, officially, and I thought that it’s a good time to start.

We are going to be making some radical changes to the blog format in the future, having the blog be fully integrated with the forum. The purpose will be to house our editorial content and highlight the best of the forum at the same time, and allow readers to interact with the system in the way they feel most comfortable.

The first step will be to find, on a consistent basis, the best posts on the forum.

Every week, I’m going to start a new “nominations” thread, and you can add up more nominations during the week. A “thread or post of the day” will be chosen and featured on the Front Page, every day, or perhaps more or less frequently, depending on the excellence or terribleness of the nominations. J and I will be the final judges, but we may bring in guest judges occasionally, and sometimes, even do things democratically (but not often).

Everything on the site except for Buying and Selling ads, NSFW, Dumb Threads, and Current Events threads and posts, are fair game. Ideally, all the posts will be no more than a week old, but I'll consider things up to a month old if they are really, really, good. There will be a nominations thread in the MC and SW&D forum, but they will not be considered separately. See the Streetwear&Denim contest thread.

Every month, we’ll put up the posts of the day for a post of the month poal, and we’ll put up a prize for both the winner and the person who nominated the winner, so nominate away. Of course, if you consistently nominate moronic stuff, you may, and will be, subject to the natural consequences, like having your account put in the trust of Connemara for 24 hours.
At the end of the year, we’ll do a post of the year, and there will be a grand prize to determine which member is the big winner. I haven’t figured out what will be the grand prize, yet, but it will be cool. Maybe a pair of MTO shoes, or 3 belts (i.e. the number I usually buy per season), or maybe an all tweed outfit, or, if the winner is a Streetwear and Denim person, an entire J.Crew wardrobe (for jet), or maybe an outfit that makes you look like the littlest goth hobo.

Let’s start. Who wants to go first? These will be posts for next week. Nominate away.

Cheers,

Fok.

I wish old threads were included. I've been around a few years, so I've seen some really nice threads, but there must be many more great threads that I've missed.

Awesome idea. Although this may be the beginning of a long run of victories for Despos and FC...

What's the format we should use for nominating? (I am nominating this post by Despos)

I would be great if you could supply the link (the quotes don't always get it) as well.

Cheers,

If there are truly good older posts, I'll consider them. Really good though.

Second pair are Levi's STFs, they were a 30 inseam but have been shrunk as much as possible









The third pair are Dockers Signature Straight fit with an inch lower rise, size 29 inseam. Leg on the left has been cuffed two inches, the one on the right only one inch.

Urea is the main chemical in urine and is beneficial to the skin and commonly used in skin care products but in an artificial form. The artificial urea can be irritating, with other issues and is a higher concentration. Why waste money on artificial products when you can have a more natural treatment by urinating on your own face? It helps balance the PH levels and promotes natural moisturizing without excess oil.

Another important reason for the effectiveness of urine is its content of countless hormones, enzymes, vitamins, trace minerals and other valuable biochemical. Some companies make a fortune by extracting some of these substances from collected urine on a large scale. The fact is that urine is not a waste product full of harmful substances as is commonly believed, but instead a treasure-trove of just the right bio-chemicals that we need for our condition.

If you're an ARTIST you can't be a looser, you're just an artist before your time. Picasso was a grisly old fart who couldn't paint with shit, but it didn't matter, he was an ARTIST with hot and cold running women till he died. But there is hope you can transform those boring old bespoke dinosaurs into chick magnets. These shoes, with the help of a white paint, and a brush, shout "I am an ARTIST, not some boring lawyer, CEO, or stock broker". And when you see me with Lindsey Lohen walking out of rehab together on the way to the next SF meet-up, you'll know why.
