For the contest, maybe to design a tama shell? Like, get a templete, and we decorate it.
And, for the prize, maybe Angelgotchi membership- not all people really like tamas anymore.

Ooh, me like! :nazotchi:
I've always wanted one of those memberships but my mum won't let me send in any money. That would be a wonderful prize, I think. :mellow:

TamaTalk Contest? Awesome.

Well, for the contest, maybe we could create another family of Tamagotchi. You know, there's Memetchi, Kuchipatchi and Mametchi as the main ones in the families (in the V4 anyway), so maybe we could design a Tamagotchi like that for another family? I don't know if that made sense, I hope it did. :furawatchi:

As for the prize, I think Rey Mysterio's idea of an Angelgotchi membership is good. Like tenniswinner said, my mum will also not allow me to send in money for the site. :furawatchi:

Also, maybe the prize could consist of 2 things. The winner gets to choose between 2 Tamagotchi versions (maybe V3 or V4, as I imagine they are 2 of the easiest versions to get hold of), if they want a Tamagotchi-related prize. Or, an Angelgotchi membership if they aren't thrilled by the idea of a Tamagotchi prize. :)

One last note... I recognize (and love) the fact that the tama community involves many sites besides TamaTalk... Should we invite other sites to participate? It might complicate things a bit. But we are all part of the same community anyways since we all share a love of all things tama. Any opinions on that?

Sure :) I don't mind a little competition ;)

Well, we could keep the Angelgotchi prize :D

The tama shell idea is very good. And then the winner has a chance to be able to get it into a REAL design on a REAL tama toy, Admin could sent it to Bandai, and see what they think.
The prize could be.. a free lifetime angelgotchi, or perhaps a tamagotchi doll from Target of your choice.

Well, yes. The tamagotchi shell design is a good idea, except I have no ideas in mind for a tamagotchi shell design contest >D

Despite the fact that TamaTalk is expanding into Non TamaTalk areas, I think Admin is right that our love of tamas is what originally made this site successful and (mostly) what still draws a lot of new members looking for information and tama friends.
So a Tama related contest seems like the best idea (this time around anyway).

I think the idea of a template shell that ppl can download and submit their designs on is a good one - it's been used before (on Tama-Zone I think).
It was a great idea then, and still is.

We have close links with the staff at TZ (several of them have been - or still are - TamaTalk Guides) so perhaps we could discuss it with them to see if they mind - in fact, we could even make it a TT/TZ joint competition if they were willing... so many TT members are also members of TZ.

The idea of offering prizes that Admin does not have to go out and buy, beg or borrow is excellent - something like a LifeTime Angelgotchi membership for the winner and 3 general Angelgotchi memberships as runner up prizes?

It also overcomes the fact that with members in countries all over the world, there's no postage/delivery costs involved with sending out a prize (and so, no danger of stuff getting lost in the international airmail system), no need to approach BanDai asking them to donate some more freebies to TamaTalk...

(On a side note, as it's a long time since they have offered TT anything in the way of prizes ... maybe they would be able to "spare" 4 of the latest V4.5 shell designs as prizes?
After all, they did approach Admin and ask TamaTalkers about the American V4s recently Bandai Wants to Know so we did provide them with a bit of free consumer research... is that enough to "owe us" a favour?)

Well there a few holidays is on the way.

Why not the best tamagotchi design theme? Like Christmas, Halloween, Fireworks night (if you're English) or even Easter!

Prizes I am as stuck as ever! I suppose something tamagotchi related is best.

How about contest for best tamagotchi invention idea? Like what new accessories should they make for tama's? Winner could get 1 (or 2) tamas of their choice (any kind of tama whether old version or new versions)

Contest? Yay! I've been waiting for another one. :marumimitchi:

About the angelgotchi- well, some people already are angelgotchies and that would really do anything for them.

I think it'd be cool if we joint-competition with TZ BUT, some members would get twice the chance because they are members of both communities. If I joined there, I could enter here as well as at TZ, increasing my chances which isn't really fair.

[Can staffers enter too?]

How about..
Create a new tamagotchi shell design, using a template, (I'm sure somebody could draw that!),and colour it in, on the computer or on paper, using the template by printing it out? :D
I'm not sure of a prize.

I like, Haha. My 'rents wouldn't let me give out my address anyway if I did win a Tamagotchi, I am sure many people are the same way too ^.^

A few ideas for the contests

~ Tamagotchi Template, I am sure someone could draw one, (Bonus: Animated too! Animating can be simple and easy with a tool like GIMP:))
~ A new 'Angelgotchi' badge (IT seems, old.)
~ Best Tamagotchi character design
~ Tamagotchi song remake (Ie: Big Tama's don't cry or That's what Tamagotchi's do)
~ Tamagotchi Poem (T-Tamagotchi Happiness A-Awesome dealies) or whatever.


~ (Lifetime)Angelgotchi badge
~ Free Tamagotchi plushi? (New!)
~ Tamagotchi Charms
~ Recongnition under avatar [Contest winner! Insert contest here]
~ More PM space? (BWHAHAHAHA)

I like some of your ideas, Maybe halloween themed too!

That's a really good point. I like TM's idea about the angelgotchi thing.

If you are ever having something mailed to you from someone you met online, use your mom's or dad's (or other close relative's) name and work address (with their permission.)

Postage always starts to add up... If people would like an angelgotchi membership (or something equivalent that gives a badge + extra PM space like the angelgotchi folks have) that would work even better. I wanted to get an idea for what would be something that people got excited about winning. Unfortunately, asking Bandai for more prizes is out... It feels like begging after so long. That's all good though. If we want a physical prize we can figure something out for that too.

EW have some great ideas here... Now the hardest part might be figuring out how many contests to do! :lol: :lol:

Any last comments or suggestions?


PS - I totally slacked on getting the Guide badge contest going... MY sincere apologies to members and Guides. :lol:
