Forum competitions? Need help thinking this through

Postby chadlincoln » Fri Oct 07, 2005 12:23 pm

I was just thinking it'd be cool if the different forums would compete in something during the offseasons. I know that a lot of us use the football forum too, but baseball is my big one and I'd consider this my main forum.

I'm not even sure what type of competition we could do, but something where we compete with the football and other forums and maybe have a trophy on winning forum's main page or something.

I'm just thinking out loud and wanting some thoughts and help. Anyone have any ideas as to what we could compete in or is this just a stupid idea?

We could do something like see who has the most posts or whatever during a time period?

I believe this sort of thing has been quietly discouraged by the powers that be because they don't want to be singling out any one poster and saying, "This guy is the best poster around and the rest of you suck." Even "team" events would promote clique development, which is never good for a site such as this.
