The game is very simple, gents. I will give 100 Pantaloonies to each individual who makes at least one constructive edit to the NPP Bible (http://nopantsprovided.com/wiki/index.php5?title=Main_Page) between now and 11:59 P.M. EST on Monday, August the 17th. That gives you a whole two weeks to add to the Bible. Additionally, I will be rewarding the three top contributors to The Bible during that period. Third place will receive 1,000, Second Place will receive 2,000, and First Place will receive 4,000. I plan to be pretty lenient about what counts as constructive, but here are a few guidelines to get you started:

A constructive edit is:
- Adding facts or information to an existing entry
- Starting a new entry with some basics to get started
- Cleaning up grammar, spelling, or punctuation in an entry
- Adding relevant photos or pictures to an entry
- Adding relevant links to other entries or threads

A constructive edit is NOT:
- Adding insults or nonsense to an existing entry
- Starting a new entry with no content in it
- Including false information in an entry
- Using the Bible as a place to continue your flame wars from the board
- Adding your opinion about the poster or subject to the entry

As for the Top Contributors aspect of the contest, the criteria will be a balance of quality and quantity. Top Contributors will be evaluated based how much they added and improved the Bible as well on the quality of their edits. To give you some guidance over the next two weeks, I will use this thread to note some entries that I think need to be expanded or created. One final note - while I've tried to give you some objective standards for what constitutes a constructive edit and a top contributor, these types of evaluations always have a subjective component to them, and that subjective component is filled in with my discretion. That means that at the end of the day, it's my call to make. However, I will attempt to be as fair and evenhanded about this as humanly possible, and I think my history with the bibles at NPP and IL vindicates that.

So that's it! Get editing! This is kind of a pilot program, so if this goes well, we might make it a regular thing.

What if you add a list of insults or nicknames used against that person?

If it's something noteworthy and widely known/used like quaop or whatever then that's fine as long as you note it in a sentence such as "People who dislike Guapo often refer to him as 'quaop.'" or something along those lines. You can also add less than flattering information; it just matters how you go about it and express it. Adding the sentence "Taff often faces accusations that his girlfriend is imaginary and that he's actually a homosexual" is acceptable. Adding the sentence "Taff is a big fucking faggot with no girlfriend" is not.

however factually accurate it might be.

Are you funding this contest yourself?

You should probably start this contest after you fix up the wiki page. Looks rather bland, what with the sunflower logo n all

That's something I'd need Scots to do. I looked into it and the wikimedia page says


In your LocalSettings.php add:

$wgLogo = '/path/to/your/logo.png';

Default is skins/common/images/wiki.png

Please note that the path has to start with your www-root-directory not your operating-system-root-directory.

Default logo size is 135px by 135px

Here's a logo: http://www.nopantsprovided.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=18&pictureid=417

Or if somebody wants to whip up something better we can use it instead.


big ups

An easy place to contribute is the NPP Catchphrases (http://nopantsprovided.com/wiki/index.php5/NPP_Catchphrases) entry. I'm sure we don't have all of them there, so if you want to make a quick 100 PL there's a good place to do it.

WTF did cheekbone do? He actually helped out, amazing.

As a jew, I'm aware of the effect that the promise of money can have on people.

And thanks to Tucho for his contribution to The Bible.

Out of interest, what happened to the old Bible on NPP? Did Vinny delete it in one of his emo rages?

GT

I think it just died with the server. It wasn't backed up like the forum was.

Osiris

That's a shame. Was a collection of legendary fiction.

Kendergardener
08-05-2009, 03:30 PM
Classic lies, even? The old bible was gone when IL switched to the new server. Murph and Vinny didn't bother to back it up and move it to the new one.

I enjoyed JK's entry where he was Pope John III or some shit.

Eh, when the promise of cash to blow at the casino didn't work, I was fairly convinced people weren't interested.

Well we got a hissy fit from you over taking stuff that you yourself posted and putting it into your bible entry, so clearly at least one person cared.

Just edit your own. It's not like anyone is going to read it anyways.
