I have this idea for a competition to boost the article creation a bit, and I was wondering what I should do with it... HELP. All rise for Acmed2 (talk) 00:38, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

Well a good first step would be to make a proposal and have the community vote on whether or not we want such a competition. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 04:07, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
Or just keep it a secret. People like secret competitions. --Leverage (talk) 11:13, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
Okay... I might as well do it here, then.
It'll be a one month competition where people will make as many articles as possible using the Wikipedia "random article" button. I'll click the button a few times until I get an article that is Uncyclopedia-worthy and give that person the topic. To ensure that the articles won't be crapballs, there'll be 1 point for making the article, 3 points for creativity, 3 points for originality, and 3 points for humor. All together, the points will act as your score. Once you finish, you can "turn in" your article and I'll give you a new topic. The articles can be short or long, but what really matters is the content. Just don't make it too crappy. Vote whether you like the idea or not. – Preceding unsigned comment added by Acmed2 (talk • contribs)
I think its a good idea and you should go ahead with it. IFYMB! 12:05, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
First, I want to hear what kind of competition this is about? I cannot give a vote before I know WHAT is this about? Is this a basic writing-thingy or an image-chopping-competition. Is there any special rules? I presonally think that there is already enough competitions but tell me what you have in mind. – Preceding unsigned comment added by Cat the Colourful (talk • contribs)
It's article writing, basically taking articles from Wikipedia and putting them on here. With the amount of articles decreasing lately, I thought this would brighten the mood. All rise for Acmed2 (talk) 12:36, 16 April 2013 (UTC)
Maybe you should wait a bit actually? I have no idea when but PLS (a BIG writing competition) should be soon, I think. Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Zzz...morning? 13:04, 16 April, 2013 (UTC)
This competition though is going to be a month long and will just be a point system for mundane articles with the exception of me giving you the topic. Plus, "TBA" for PLS doesn't really qualify as "soon". All rise for Acmed2 (talk) 22:51, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Vote or Die!
