    Default Chiefs Crowd contest idea...


    0 Not allowed!
    I was thinking of ways we could maybe generate more activity at Chiefs Crowd during the off season and current lockout. I have a Dallas Texans Riddell throwback mini helmet autographed by Len Dawson, that I would like to offer up as a prize to the winner of a Chiefs Crowd contest.

    The contest idea would need to be one that will inspire more frequent activity by members, & possibly related to a members participation/activity somehow. Any contest ideas, suggestions, or general thoughts about a contest to inspire more participation during this slow time?

    We could have Chiefs trivia on a couple certain days weekly...the first member to respond correctly get's points, then at the end of a 30 day cycle the person with the most points win's the mini helmet? The negative aspect I see with an online trivia though is it would have to be on an honor system, no way to prevent someone from Googling the answers. Not that Chiefs Crowd members aren't honest, hahaha...just sayin based upon experience when we played trivia every Friday night at Kid Rock's website during it's slow time, which was typically winter, no tours. Some members admitted to Googling, but they were honest with admitting they Googled, lol.


    We could have mini contests within the main contest...give points for each mini contest won, the member again with the most points in a 30 day cycle winning. Example: we could have a mini contest asking members to submit their funniest or most embarrassing moment attending a Chiefs game...members would then vote on which members memory is the funniest. Another would be to ask members to submit their funniest tailgating photo, or most awesome game photo, and so on?

    Just thinking out loud here...

I don't have a clue how to do something like that, and the point is to increase membership activity, so somehow we would need to let members know...wouldn't we?

    PS edit: I assume Coach is okay with our doing this? :/
    Well, I won't propose to speak for Coach, but can't imagine him having a problem with it; I'm sure he will mention it to me and the other mods if he does. As far as trivia rules go I think it's best to keep them simple. Something in the way of the following:

    1. A trivia thread will be started by you (Connie Jo), who will MC the contest since you are generously putting up the prize.

    2. The answer for said trivia question/s can be derived by any means at members disposal.

    3. The trivia thread will be opened up for a short time at random intervals throughout the week. If the question is not correctly answered in the given interval then the trivia question will be changed, another question added or winner determined by whoever answers the most trivia questions correctly over a given time/date frame.


    These rules are just me spit-balling.

    I think a good time for the contest to run is until there is football or whoever wins the contest as provided by whatever rules you think are best.

    I'm good at coming up with ideas, but not contest rules and format, which is why I hoped you'd do that part for me, LOL. Whatever you think works best works for me as far as game rules, timespan, all that. Would I start a thread here in the Locker Room? Also...any suggestions as to letting members know about the contest in advance of it beginning, so in fairness to all they can participate if wanting to?

    I would suggest more that one set of trivia questions, make us work for the answers, otherwise the contest will be over before all get a chance to play.

    Another question I need help answering...should I limit the trivia to Chiefs related only? How difficult should I make the trivia questions? LOL

    I would say if approved of the contest, yes, and difficult. But this is your gig, if approved by Coach.

    Yeah, as I mentioned way up there somewhere...need to be sure Coach is okay with it. My original thought was to keep the questions strictly related to Chiefs in one way or another, but I'm gonna try to have some tricky ones, assuming it's all okay with Coach. ;)
