The ComicVine February contest is on. You and a partner of opposite or neutral alignment must join forces to create a classic battle of good versus evil that takes place at a specific location in any comic universe. Basically, pick 2 any unfilled character pages on ComicVine along with one location page, and fill them in before March to the best of your ability, then send a quick fictional account of the battle between those characters to firstname.lastname@example.org. Then the staff will judge the quality of the ComicVine pages you filled in for your hero, villain and location, as well as your description of the battle. Whoever has the best looking and filled in pages as well as the most inventive battle wins!
The Deadline for submissions is February 28th. Battles will be posted on March 1st and the winner will be announced March 2nd.
You must partner up with another ComicVine user who is of opposite or nuetral alignment. Meaning, a good and evil user together, a good and neutral user together, an evil and neutral user together or two neutral users together.
You must select a comic hero, villain and location for your battle. If you really feel up to it, you may choose two teams (still good vs. evil), but beware you are likely looking at A LOT of work to fill out team pages since they are naturally larger. We're judging on quality, not quantity. You will not be judged on issues attached to the characters or teams, just on their core pages.
The pages you choose must either be new, or pages with little or no content currently on them. "Little" is defined as pages with less then 10 images and less then 2 paragraphs of text in them currently. Update Please check the rules update on page 2 of this topic to see special considerations for this rule.
Although submissions will continue as normal, if anyone is caught vandalising another teams selections or in any way attempting to rig the contest you will be immediately disqualified and likely banned from user submission completely. Remember, deletes and shorter pages go through moderation, so don't get too worried about stuff like this.
Battle Descriptions must be text only and must be emailed to email@example.com by the deadline.
The winner and runner-up will be decided by the ComicVine staff.
Leave a post on this topic that states the pages you select and your partner. Once confirmed I'll post your team and pages in the post directly under this.
You are allowed to pick one feature addition to ComicVine.com that the staff will build within 2 weeks of the contest ending. This must be within reason since we'll likely build it over the weekend. Just PM Captain Cascader before the contest ends if you're unsure if your proposal is too large. There's only so much we can do over a weekend, so be clever and realistic!
