    My long proposed Review our Reviews would do nicely I think. We have em review a minimum of 10 of our articles/reviews and give constructive criticism.

    Benefit is that we'll know if we're doing anything wrong and crank up the quality of our work. :mrgreen: Of course we will review all the reviews... :D

    LOL! I think only few will participate... :faint: :mrgreen:

    As usual, I suck at churning out ideas for contest. Coz most of the contests I see are only from newspaper, etc... answer a few questions and write a slogan. :faint:

    Or maybe we should ask what contests should we hold for the next one. :haha:

    If you want traffic, post once a day thing is good. For sheer number of posts.

    I like PsY's idea... but like Dashken said, I dont think many will participate due to the amount of "work" involved.

    It needs to be an effortless (both physical and mental) contest to get paticipation up.

    I did a little surfing and found these.

    FWIW: is giving prizes to users that submit creative writings or programs. is using an online technology quiz. ???

    Here's a couple of mine...

    Find links to ARP contest - wont produce much traffic per say on ARP but it will surely give an idea of where traffic comes from and who are our true "affiliates".

    We can always do a "Name the ARP Mascot" contest.

    Also, the gaming contest seemed to keep the site busy, we can always pick 3 new games and give it a go... :thumb:

    Hey.. Just thought of it. How about a survey contest??? :shock:

    We need to run a survey, right? Oh, for the rest of you who were not present during our recent meeting... we were thinking of running a survey.

    This contest would give us a great way for us to get people to participate in the contest.

    Of course, certain questions would be pertaining to Malaysians only, but I think we can detect their IPs and give them the appropriate set, right? And if we can filter out Malaysian survey results (for our other project), then that would be useful, right? :think:

    Hmm.. Ishtim is right in that sense. :think:

    Look at the previous contests. If it takes too much effort, many people prefer not to participate, even if it's a very good prize. :think:

    Weird.. but that's what I've noticed. :wall:

    Remember the bit of not linking it with us.... :wicked:

    Yup.. That "phase" of the survey campaign, we will still continue. But we can also make use of this to gain more participants. :think:

    OR... we can do that with a giveaway contest for the new website to be launched in November? :think:

    You definately have a point there, but is it really good "business" to focus on one's flaws and weaknesses? :think:

    Adrian Wong Da Boss Staff Member

    Hehe.. Exactly. :haha:

    Even if it's not good marketing (companies and other sites are watching!), it's definitely bad for morale, I think. :mrgreen:

    My review our reviews was supposed to do that too. Plus its intention was to bring in more traffic. :think:

    So.... what should we do this time?? :haha:

    Seriously, we should post something now so that it will be over by the time we launch the new site (and a mega-contest).

    Nope, make it a suprise contest together with the launch.

    You mean skip this contest and use the prize for the mega-giveaway contest to be launch with the release of the new site? :think:

    Hmm.. That's a good idea actually. These are pretty good prizes. :think:

    Oh... I didn't know you are doing a mega contest.
