Hi folks,

 

I've been a part of this community for what feels like ages, both playing the game & annoying people on the forum.  This game has previously been a huge part of my life & I feel as if I may have taken both WG & you, the community, for granted.  Sorry, my bad.  As I now feel that my time here is coming to an end, I started thinking that maybe it's time I gave something back.  However, as always, I refuse to use my powers for purely good & so of course there's going to be a catch.

 

Here's the deal,  I want to encourage you fine fellow/fellowettes to have some fun on the forums. 

 

So how?  Well I propose a competition.

 

But how & for what?  Well it's very simple.  I'd like you, if you feel inclined to humour me,  to post a comment within any active thread in the game play section, comprising entirely of song lyrics.  Any song, or songs, I aint fussy.  The funnier, or cleverer (if that's your thing) the better.  Sounds easy?  Well here's the catch,  you need to be on topic, as I will not condone anyone breaking the forum rules.  You also cannot explain why you have posted the song lyric, so it better make sense in the context.

 

The winner will not be decided by myself.  After some deep soul searching I came to the conclusion that I could not be trusted to be completely unbiased in any decision as to the best post.  So the winner will be decided by the post with the most likes from the community (although it may be necessary to overrule this should it become apparent that some form of rigging may have been going on)  So please let your posts stand on their own merit.  Please note the organisers decision is final in this regard & so long as there is at least one valid entry I gurantee the prize will be allocated to someone.

 

If you wish to enter simply link your entry post in this thread. I will review them all on Thursday 5th December 2019.  The winner will be announced shortly after.  Winner takes all & draw is counted as a loss for all involved.

 

Please post entires in the following format.

You're angry & you should be, it's not fair.  Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it isn't there.  If they say...

http://forum.worldof...0640#entry17263

 

If only 1 person enters then they win by default, even if nobody likes their post.  I am not eligible to win.  Absolutely anyone else is eligible to win including WG employees, Forum Mods, non players....

 

So if you've managed to find the off topic section & bothered reading this lengthy gibberish this far I'm guessing you'll want to know what you can win.  Well rather than offer you something specific I'll just set a limit of £45 to be spent on whichever items you may desire from the premium shop.  I'll contact the winner on the 5th December to discuss this & items will be purchased as gifts that day.  If you'd prefer cash then get a job.

 

Anyway, best of luck to anyone that bothers entering & thanks to all for making my time with WoT so, er, WoTish, I guess.

Strong start here, especially liked the beautiful south quote.

 

Forgot to mention, free likes for all posts as I've nothing better to do with mine these days.

You made a typo in the topic title.

Here, because Olias seems to be slacking considerably I decided to start helping him out. :D

Just to clarify, the winner will be the single post that meets the criteria & has received the most likes.  Not whoever has the most posts or most likes overall.  Still the more entries the more chance of winning.

 

Miepie is currently in the lead with 7 likes for his quote from push it to the limit.  Although strictly speaking it's not in the gameplay section I think allowances can be made for managing it in a thread from the community content team. 

 

A special mention also has to go to Olias for displaying such persistence & a varied taste in music.  Will consider adding lesser bonus prizes depending on finances in December.

Yeah, well, I admittedly glossed over that "in the gameplay section" bit. Sorry. However, despite posting song lyrics here and there being good fun, I do like some poignancy. So I will chip in with the Bullseye Bonus, a € 10,- kicker / separate prize for the entry that I personally deem the most to the point, sharpest fit to the actual topic of the thread. Requirements: must fit all the SpamHam constraints, poster must not be me, and ehrrr... must have some not yet defined minimum length to it that is more than five words. :medal:

Every time when I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn
Isn't that the way
Everybody's got the dues in life to pay

I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it's everybody sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life
Is books, written pages
Live and learn from fools and
From sages
You know it's true, oh
All these feelings come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

Yeah, sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

Dream on
Dream on
Dream on
Dream until your dreams come true

Not in gameplay, not intended to participate, but I found it suiting for this topic ;)
