Maddie's Birthday Bash (places posted page 9)
« on: August 04, 2012, 07:17:12 AM »
Hi!
I wanted to say quickly and foremost that you guys are wonderful. I’ve only been a part of the Arena for such a short amount of time, but never has an online community welcomed me so warmly. Many times when you join a new forum it’s very difficult to establish yourself or make friends. People seem to follow into clicks and can be very harsh and worse even than associating with those in real life. I haven’t felt that here with you ponies. Everyone has been so warm and caring. I’ve had people constantly give me advice on pony care, suggest different things or places to get items, literally give me ponies, call me to cheer me up and even help me track down ponies I’ve wanted. Where else can you find people like that? A large group of people that are so overly loving unselfish people. My first thought would be that collectors would be greedy, always trying to snatch up expensive items for themselves. I’ve yet to meet a person on this forum that fits that description. I suppose some could make the argument (and have) that army collecting is greedy, but even those with armies are some of the ones that have sent me pm’s helping me or nudging me to find ponies. Ones they collect as well. In general I just wanted to say I feel very lucky to have found you guys, and I love you.  I feel like those I have met embody the ideas of love and friendship that our favorite 80s characters repeated so often.

I wanted to do something to show my appreciation of the kindness I’ve met here on the boards.  On any other forum I would have sent something to one or two people that showed me the upmost kindness that I appreciated; however, there is one problem with this idea for me. I’ve really yet to have one person be mean to me or not be helpful in some way. I want to do something that everyone has a chance, and to express my appreciation. I’ve decided to have a small little round of Birthday games of sorts for my big day in August. The winners will receive a special box from me (free of charge to you of course, you’re allowed to offer to pay for shipping but not obligated in any way to do so) with surprise pony items. It’s just sort of a surprise birthday present, except going the opposite direction, as I will give it to you.

Rules
1)   Only one winner obviously, but I will have prizes for other places.
2)   I’d like to follow trade/sell rules and say that anyone to receive a prize must be 16 years + . I know that’s a bit of a bummer, but I’m sorry.
3)   Anyone can enter even outside of the U.S.
4)   You have to fill out the little questions I have since it will help determine what goes in your box if you win or place high enough.
5)   Please have fun and don’t get discouraged if you lose. I’m not an expert with judging pictures, but I will do my best.
6)   Post your picture submissions. You may submit two entries.

Dates
8/4/12- Officially open to submissions
8/8/12- My birthday! Hooray!
8/15/12- all competitions closed and judging begins
8/18/12- Winner announced
9/1/12- Packages shipping out

Note: I know this is a bit of time to ship, but I start teaching again on the 20th and my days will be really full. It will take me a few weeks to get into the swing of things, and I hate to say they will go out right after the contest then get busy and overloaded with work. I will notify each person when they ship though and get them out at least by the end of August or first week of September. Please realize that a lot of my little packages will be items I buy before the end. That way no one has to wait a long period for me to order something, the item to arrive and then ship it to you. That means most prizes will be G4 pony based, but I want to add extra things to your boxes or try to customize them in a way to fit the winners’ personality.

When you submit a picture it’s optional, but you may submit these questions answered or send them to me in a pm. That way when I pick the winners I can determine extras to include in the boxes. ^^
Questions
1.   Which generation 4 pony is your favorite?
2.   Do you simply collect or like to customize or rehair?
3.   What is your favorite color?
4.   Briefly list a few things that you like?
5.   What type of candy do you like?
6.   What little extra things would make for a fun package?

Perfect Pictures
The idea for this contest is pretty simple. I would like you to take a birthday picture with ponies. This could be ponies having a birthday party set up with a scene or maybe a picture of you celebrating with ponies. I’ll leave it up to your own interpretation, but try to have fun and keep it light hearted. I think something with humor and brightness is important for a pony birthday. Hooray!

Hooray ponies! :cheer: I know it will just make me give a little squeal of joy to see some awesome pictures.
I'm also happy that people are going to participate...I was a teensy bit worried people wouldn't.

Thanks for the birthday wishes, and I'm glad to have a nice home at the arena with all of you.  I think since I've brought it up my ponies are going to have to participate in a little birthday photo. Now I just need some cake for them. :lol:
