yes i'm semi copying this off of another forum, but i thought it was a good idea.

basically each competitor posts a picture (or 3) of (Mr) rifle and (Mrs) loadout, for a week/month on 2 separate threads, and then after that week/month another 2 polls are set up for each competitor to decide 1st 2nd and 3rd to allow posting on the sig and bragging rights.

now the trick part is that it isn't about the person it's about only the gun or the loadout, mainly to stop discrimination against fatties or hunks (guilty), i personally will be taking 2 photo's of my loadout off of my person and the last on my person, same with rifle.

i personally do not think it would take any modification to the current forum.

any modifications please include.

thanks

nice idea could be abit of work to get right. though
first off I'd only do it monthly weekly is to quick and will be the same pictures and kit most weeks so boring .
decide on opening/ closing date
make a thread for people to submit their name +1 picture (you dont need 3 each its a waste thread space and server space and will make it harder to keep tidy ) once closing date reached do another with a poll for each contestant and copy the pictures to the first post (if you rely on people to post them in separate posts it will end up mixed up between random comments making it annoying to look at and compare ) leave for a few days and announce winner

nick maybe you could create a banner for people to use in the Sig just a small one so it can go with what ever. they have already

sorry about the confusion, but to clarify, each part of the competition lasts a month so that it gives every person plenty of chance to get a photo at a skirmish day or wherever and then to give everybody plenty of time to vote/look at photo's. and that we only do it bi-annually (summer and winter) so that it doesn't lose it's fun.

i wouldn't mind doing it but i first want moderator permission, and if possible a separate sub-forum to make sure it's all in same place,

thanks

SO there is 1 thread for a gun and 1 for kit.

each person is allowed 1 photo in each and can only enter once (people entering 2/3+ times are banned and have to have a sig of shame for the duration?)

Threads are open for 1 month, then a week of voting ensues

winner is announced

Winner gets a fancy sig/some other reward untill the next vote


If I've got that Right it sounds like it could be quite fun :D

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

 

Resident Patrol Base Techy, any questions about PB, message me and I'll do my best to answer.

got it in one

and yes, i thought it would be a bit of airsofting fun, short of the small games that appear every 5 minutes.

plus it's actually kinda worth something.

sig winner is good fun though.

P.S. can someone change the thread name, thanks.

yea you spelt Forum wrong :D

If we are going for many of these why not do them themed

i.e

one month is for say best British kit
next one best film character and so on so people can have; best British loadout etc.
and have it run both on the gear and guns so someone might have a sick L85 but wear other kit so they could still enter???

do you get me?

If you need a team or any patch deigns.. drop me a PM!!

Themes is a good idea. I think the topics would best be posted in Gear & Loadouts, I might change the name to Guns, Gear and Loadouts for accuracy :P

If someone wants to take lead on running them that's fine with me, but I'd like to see ideas for themes for the next 6 months.

Could do, but it'd really narrow down the entry numbers I think

Edit: actually just ignore the above, broad themes (like British) would work :P

Here's a few suggestions:

British
American
Film Character
Woodland (maybe too broad)
European
Camoflauge (no ghillies)
Badass
Spec Ops
Game Character
Sci-Fi
Pre-1945
Cold War
Vietnam
Afghanistan

I see, I was expecting say, Italian or something, fair enough got it :P

How often would these happen? Once every two months? That'd give time to get votes and organise the next

are you sure you posted this in the right section?

also we could work out the theme by saying one regular member chooses a theme for that month and then another the next and that member is responsible for tallying the votes etc. what do you guys think?

Well I did start by asking "what did you mean by theme" I take it you are talking about HTML Layouts? if so how about a Gun of the Month Theme

Is that sarcasim? I just thought it would be easier to manage and also if we had wide themes it would make sense and share the advantage around rather then one person.

Well I did start by asking "what did you mean by theme" I take it you are talking about HTML Layouts? if so how about a Gun of the Month Theme



No I meant themed competion like who has the best British Loadout or gun who has the best American Loadout or gun etc.

Right got it sorry m8 its been a long day I've hurt my leg and my new flat went bust :(


A forum format page would be a pain to do this on, you could set up a photo layout page with ratings so there is less work to do in the long run and maybe April could be the joke month like who has the funniest M4


Edit: how would you prove that you took the picture? maybe a little sign with AF-UK
