Or ripping directly from DvDs, which is technically legal for the purpose of backing up, but is still controversial when you upload it to teh intarwebz. We all know the laws regarding all this are really outdated, or just hastily patched, especially when methods of enforcement cost way too much.

But yes, we wouldn't want CR to be a target of that costly enforcement.

I do like all the writing suggestions. My favorite contest was the Madoka Magica one, not because we drew our own characters, but because we got to write about them as well.

How about writing a theme song and submitting a video or link of you playing it?

Or for a Rom-Com contest, submit a video of you confessing to someone! hahah.

Hmmm, what about a puzzle game? Trivia? Scavenger hunt for a hidden Icon on this website? I love to sing and write so that would be fun and I would definitely do it!

I like the scavenger hunt idea for more casual fans. For the true otaku, I like trivia contests, as well as maybe a fanfic contest for those of us who like to write.

Hello Bee, my point of view of a contest I think is drawing, quiz, or something more unique to CR at together

Hmm... I personally really enjoy the drawing contests and would love to see more of them, but at the same time they aren't something that everyone is universally good at. Maybe the majority of contests should involve something that everyone can do and doesn't require aptitude for some technical skill (like drawing or writing), but I think there should still continue to be some of the creative ones sprinkled in with others.

I enjoyed all the art contests, but I wouldn`t sing or dance or anything like that because some of us don`t have talent, proper recording equipment or don`t wan`t to edit a video we recorded because we`re ashamed of our body (Like me D; and i`m too lazy to put any effort into changing it - haha).

Sometimes I think if you notify us of some of the merchandise that we`ll be winning would be motivational. Otherwise, I`d feel like some people hesitate to participate because of competition.

As disloyal as it sounds - I watch anime on other sites as well, and the fact that you can track the progress only on crunchyroll makes it a challenge to have to watch x amount of episodes to qualify.

Also, as a student, some of the drawings take us time, which we sometimes don`t have (sadness~~).

Otherwise more contests with more time range would be awesome!

I unfortunatly can not draw and therefor can not participate in many of these contests. I would appreciate some more variety.

Oh yeah, as you know I'm for singing(which doesn't necessarily have to include YOU just your voice ), photoshopping, trivia, video game, music, writing, Christmas themed, you know something other than the usual drawing contest. Some of us don't have scanners...some 'ain't got no skillz'

Maybe even something with meaning...I don't know what. lol

Oh! What about...if you could have one wish(like Aladdin in Magi) what would it be.

Or how a certain anime character would react in certain situations. Since they all have such personality.

Creating a new anime could be fun.

Well coming from absolute zero ability of drawing, the contests for fanart was really hard to join in. I think the screen caps from Gintama and the contest for My Little Monster was nice. ^^ I competed in both.
An animation I would like to see for a contest would definitely be Reborn! The manga ended just recently and some contest would be nice XD
Though I am just glad you guys are having contests. Keep up the good work!

I really enjoyed partaking in the my little monster caption contest! I guess it's that much more accesible too. :3

There has to be a workaround somewhere for the AMVs... How about, we make our own drawings, to make a slideshow? That'd leave only the song out, which would be easier to get permission for the contest only. Another problem is that it would require a lot of drawing, so you'd have to give people a few months to get that done... I don't know but something's gotta give!!

Hmmm off the top of my head, I'd suggest an Art and / or Fan fiction contest. Short (2 page) FF's featuring secondary toons on shows or based on CR art contests winner's or runner up's artwork.. Maybe a "daisy chain" fan fiction contest. One person starts a story (perhaps a page long) and then another picks up where they left off, rinse and repeat. CR staff would most likely need to chose the order of people writing but that shouldn't be a problem once people sign up for the contest.

Perhaps for the cosplayers an original costume contest for an established character. You could go as far as sending the winner's results to the appropriate production staff as a prize.

An original recipe contest may work also, since food seems to be an important component of many animes. (Leaving me insanely hungry after watching some of the meals.)

For musicians, perhaps a "best cover" or "best original song" contest. Also the same vein, a voice over contest might be good for a few laughs. For instance taking a scene from a show and adding a whole new spin on it by adding new dialog.

Many shows also feature Japanese historical figures, so it may be possible to use that as a centerpiece or even a number of the cultural events (i.e. Bon festivals, Golden week, beach and or hot springs, etc)

Letting the random members vote sometimes on contests would be fun also.

These are just things off the top of my head and I'm sure some are simply logistically too difficult, but hopefully it make spark some ideas from you guys or fellow members. Thanks for all your hard work Princess Crunchyroll ( ). CR and the work you guys do, makes it easier to deal with the world at times by giving me (and others) a much needed break from life. And hopefully I'll be able to find a school soon that has a decent Tankery program. With all the great ideas from this thread I believe the most difficult task might be choosing some the ideas.

Take care,
-N-
