Here's my idea:

Make-a-gotchi Contest!

Hello ladies and gents, today we will be holding the Make-a-gotchi contest! The rules are simple: Create your own tamagotchi character! With background information as well, like its favourite food and favourite sport or you can go as far as to telling how the gotchi came to be! Get creative, and try your best! The winner would recieve ... Lol, I totally don't know... But it'll be something awesome (I'm sure) ;)

Lol sorry for the whole "Congratulationssssssssssssssssssssssss come on down!" kind of post. I thought it'd add character :P

EDIT: Extra info:
- Gotchis could be drawn or made of clay or other means too
- The prize obviously has to give the winner a tamagotchi.
- Maybe other prizes like posters of the tamagotchi's would be a good idea to!

PS: I'm not really sure if the characters inside a tamagotchi are called tamagotchis (I know, it's like an oxy moron but still) or gotchis.

Well, they should have the next tamagotchi version and post it before it is out for public to buy! Like the V5 for Christmas, instead of January!

Hello TamaTalkers!
For those who are relatively new to the site, we used to have a regular series of contests where we gave away a bunch of free Tamagotchi pets (donated by Bandai). Buying a bunch of tamas to give away can get expensive. Bandai hasn't been as giving lately with their donations for contests (but we still LOVE them). I would still like to do contests though. The problem? I'm not made of money. Solution? FInd another way to get prizes.

I have been talking to my friends over at LinkJudge to see if I could sweet talk them into working with us on something. This would be something that helps us get some prizes and helps LinkJudge get some more attention. I asked if, as a group, we could come up with some contest to start the freebies again. They asked "What kind of contests?" and "what kind of prizes?" And that's where I drew a blank. I had absolutely zero ideas. DOH!

So I figured the best way to fix that is by asking you! What kinds of prizes would you want to win? What kinds of contests to try and win them? Any ideas?

There's a lot of interesting contest ideas, mostly design-based, but frankly, we're not all artistic B) I'd like to suggest the occasional contest that encourages cleverness, like a scavenger hunt on TamaTalk (go on different bits of the forum to find information or a specific picture of something) or maybe a Tamagotchi quiz?

Yes we recognize that not everyone is talented in every way, so our plan is to hold a series of contests, alternating between different types: drawing, poetry, scavenger hunt, etc.

As for prizes, right now the only doable idea is TamaTalk Angelgotchi membership. TamaTalk isn't a money-making business, so the prizes have to be something that doesn't actually cost us $$$ - neither to purchase nor to mail to the winner.

Wow, That's great binary! :) But since I'm already a Lifetime angelotchi, I guess there is nothing to worry about! xD

I think the contest should be either an animation image contest, a video contest, or a funny saying contest, (ex:Help! The Heavy Tourist Pinched My Kitten!!!) and the prizes shoud be older tamas like ver. 1 or 2!

I work in the heritage sector, so all the places i work are not-for-profit, and I totally get what you're saying about prizes needing to be things that work within a budget (namely, a 'doesn't cost us anything' budget- my budget's the same!). Has Tamatalk considered approaching places other than Bandai itself to donate prizes? I bet there's some specialty online retailers who would be happy to throw a few tamas or tama-related merch Tamatalk's way should they receive adequate complementary ad space on the site ("This contest's prize is graciously donated by www.onlineretailer.com, the place to go for all your 'Gotchi needs!" with a banner/graphic of some sort, something like that).

For the contest, a new picture that expresses what you like about tamagotchi's to put as "Picture of the month"
I'd like a small badge at the bottom, like what you win after you beat the games in the arcade!
It makes me feel "honored" :)

*edit: A few changes

How about maybe a "best tamagotchi character couples" contest where for example: scince mametchi and mimitchi are always so brainy they would make the perfect couple.

Maybe, as the Familitama is realeased, we could make a main character, then add the other family, including the pet!I don't know what the prize could be, maybe a pixelated version of the family? I mean a animation of them all walking aroung the 'screen'?

How about "best customized Tamagotchi"? A contest where people decorate their Tamagotchi with paint, decals, and such.

Or...

How about "best Tamagotchi spoof of a music video or song"? For example take Madonna's "I'm a material girl" and rewrite it to be "I'm a Tamagotchi girl".

Or...

How about "submit a drawing of what you think TamaTalk Admin looks like"? :)

I agree with you binary
