Cool prize. If it were the "find this screenshot" type of contenst, I'd participate. But these badge contests I really dislike and won't participate (though I'm more likely to participate than in Facebook-required contests). The logic is the same as always. I have watched all these episodes with great excitement already, watching them again so soon is NOT going to happen, much less the multiple times necessary to overcome terrible luck. And it's not within my will to "cheat" by having the video play without genuinely watching it.

Badge contests are only well suited to being started when a series is first uploaded, or for something large and fully uploaded, like Fist of the North Star. I wonder how many winners of these badge contests played it fairly.


You certainly don't mean fairly, you make it sound like cheating if someone doesn't sit down and watch through each episode.

Uh uh, I have watched these episodes multiple times before this contest and I'm not intending to do it again after being elucidated enough. I understand that it's just semantics even though I think it was used poorly in this case which made this half watcher slash multiple tab opener feel offended by your word.

Fortunately I don't share your sentiments because having done this type of contest before it's arduous and impossible to win if your gonna have to sit before every single episode. I'm so sorry but it's utterly and devastatingly unpractical if you want a chance to participate or have already watched it to your hearts content.

Honestly, I'm a bit confused about the badges we need to collect... ~__~

Can someone be a bit more specific??
Like the badges, are they supposed to be in full color or just as long as they don't have incomplete it's fine? Because, I have one that is in color and the rest are all shadows....

Same here. I got five color countries and some with the words incomplete. I'm sure we can discard of those, I'm hoping that's correct . Though the four character badges came with 4 shadow badges, that's how it is for me anyway. It's safe to presume that there's no harm in keeping them I guess, just maybe there important.

You've emphasized my point well. This contest's concept mandates that a show be "watched", not simply clicking the episodes link. Clearly the concept of these badge-contests is to promote getting more views to the show. But as we both point out, fulfilling that concept is impractical.

The more obscure point I was making, is that consequently this is not a sincere contest. The contest calls for doing X, but doing X is impractical, so people will do Y which achieves X. If that becomes commonplace, then there is no point in asking for X if it is bypassed in favor of Y. In straight english, these badge contests fail to encourage watching the show, and with the element of randomness, it instead promotes the need to click the episodes more than once while ignoring the content (for the objective of getting people to watch a show, getting their viewership once to each episode should suffice).

That aside, I cannot withdraw my offence. When entering a contest, I want to do as the intention of it asks, and not resort to measures outside of that intention to gain a better chance of winning. It's like the difference of entering your name into a random drawing once, and another guy entering the drawing 20 times. The contest asks for winning by watching, so I want to win by watching. I cannot call not watching, per every badge you seek to obtain, as fair. However ... is doing it just? Yes. Your choice is plenty justified, the contest promoted doing such action after all.

Can someone answer one question for me please???

Are the badges supposed to be in full color or not???
That is bugging me so much it's driving me nuts.
No offense but the instructions were really vague.... x_x
I mean I understand the INCOMPLETE part and the amount of badges but I just don't know exactly what kind of badge I'm aiming for... I get some in color and some not

I think I want the poster.

No, I KNOW I want that poster. I will enter solely for the sake of the poster.

The kit's just an added bonus. But knowing, my luck, *sighs* I probably won't win.

Anyone know what these "badges" things are anyway?

In regards to the badges...

Why is the badge for Weissritter (White Knight in German), labeled as the "Blue Robot"? I mean, the darn thing is not even mostly blue!

Well, got all the colored ones, just need 2 b/w ones for the full collection.

I wish by now they would've made it possible for you to arrange your badges on your profile page, so you can group things together properly.

Ah well.
