2008-08-12 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: Wow... so I didn't even know this badge existed...

2008-08-12 [SilverFire]: Was there a particular reason that you should have been aware of it for?

2008-08-13 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: lol no. I was just browsing the badges is all. I guess there haven't been that many RP contests seeing as how so few members have this badge

2008-08-13 [SilverFire]: 2. But one hasn't been badged yet.

2008-08-22 [Daisy le Fleur]: Question: How does one compete in RPing? Sounds... well, I dont know.. interesting? I know one thing.. I want me one of them schnazzy Octopi! =P

2008-08-22 [SilverFire]: In an RP Tournament, usually :D

2008-09-30 [Alexi Ice]: Sweet! This is an awesome sounding competition! Where does one find an RPG contest?

2008-09-30 [SilverFire]: There are no opens ones at the moment. the Champion's Tournament is just drawing to a close. :)

2008-09-30 [Alexi Ice]: Dangit. That always happens to me ^^ Oh well. I shall keep watching for it ^^

2008-10-06 [Thunder Cid]: Is there any ideas brewing for the next contest?

2008-10-06 [SilverFire]: maybe, in the top secret idea factory. ;)

2008-10-06 [Thunder Cid]: Ah well crank that machine up a little. I'm getting restless :)

2008-10-06 [Alexi Ice]: Restless? You're kickin' me arse! How could you be getting restless? lol.

2008-10-08 [Thunder Cid]: Should there not be a rp boss?

2008-10-08 [SilverFire]: Uh... why?

2008-10-08 [Thunder Cid]: I don't know. I was just thinking about it last night. Really I'm not sure why I asked ^^

2008-10-21 [Fizban]: I am sure this isn't the best place to ask this question, however I will attempt anyway. 

Does anyone know if there is an active roleplaying contest open? Or, where the roleplaying contests are posted? 

2008-10-22 [SilverFire]: There aren't any at the moment, they are posted on Official Role-playing Tournament when they are.

2008-10-22 [Fizban]: Sweet, thanks :)

2008-11-13 [Silver Moon]: do you have to do art to apply or can you make rpgs? I have many rpgs so I was wondering what the guidelines are

2008-11-13 [SilverFire]: Eheum, no you don't have to make art to enter an RP contest, nor do you actually have to be a GM/DM - you just have to be a role-player.

2008-11-13 [Silver Moon]: I am when is the next contest?

2008-11-13 [SilverFire]: We're not sure yet, but it definitely won't be until at least next year. :)

2008-11-13 [Silver Moon]: oh ok thanks

2009-01-16 [Chel.]: ooohohhh.....

2009-02-15 [Tigers and Trees]: I don't remember doing any of this.


Yet somehow I have a badge.

2009-02-15 [iippo]: You submitted the character Lielrae Concordia to the Champion's Tournament, which was the first roleplaying competition in ET. That first round of character creation was a few years ago in 2006 (you can see your entry in contestants page version 52)

2009-02-16 [Tigers and Trees]: Aha. Wow, that was quite a long time ago.

2009-02-16 [iippo]: I suppose :3 Years go quickly when you're young.

2009-02-16 [Aeolynn]: Whats the difference between the green badge, and the badge that has the writing in blue, but not the octopus?

2009-02-16 [SilverFire]: the latter is a slightly higher stage of the badge.

2009-02-16 [Aeolynn]: ok~ thanks, I understand it now.

So, another question, what puts you under that catagory, and not under the first one? Like... what are the requirements?

2009-02-16 [SilverFire]: That's explained on Donors, but it's to do with how many contests you've entered, and how far you got in a tournament. (so if two people both enter a tournament, and one makes it to round 1, and the other to round 3, the one who made it to round 3 will have a higher stage of the badge).

2009-02-16 [Aeolynn]: Thanks again, :]

2009-03-26 [Faulty Limerence]: I don't know if this is where I need to bring this up, but the ET Roleplayers badge message has a typo when displayed on my house and I'd like to have it corrected or removed.

2009-03-26 [True, plain and simple]: It should be fixed now.

2009-03-27 [Faulty Limerence]: Thank you very much.

2009-07-15 [Aeolynn]: so when we having a 2009 tourny?

2009-08-13 [twitchboy]: Yes my question exactly

2009-08-14 [Chel.]: Yes! I would love a pretty octo badge on my house! :3

2009-08-14 [Alexi Ice]: Me too.

2009-08-24 [Eyden13]: Me three

2009-09-11 [Talos Cyrion]: lol me four!

2010-09-12 [Tekkon KinKreet]: is this dead or is there possibly going to be another tourny?

2010-09-12 [Eyden13]: wasn't the character contest a rp contest?

2010-09-12 [Tekkon KinKreet]: if i remember right it was both kinda... the characters got judged, and then if your charrie passed you rped

2010-09-12 [Chel.]: I'm not sure if it fits into this category or not.
We are still in the process of judging. It's such a looooong process.

2010-09-12 [Tekkon KinKreet]: wow... when did judging start?

2010-09-12 [Chel.]: I think in spring?...Something that set us back was that one mod lost internet over the summer.

2010-09-12 [Tekkon KinKreet]: ouch thats never nice

2010-09-12 [SilverFire]: Yes the character challenge is an RP contest. Participants will be getting this badge (hopefully soon, because we're mostly done). :3

2010-09-12 [Eyden13]: Yay!

2010-10-13 [Jadala*(Once upon a moment)]: *SO CONFUSED*

2010-10-13 [SilverFire]: What are you confused about?

2010-10-13 [Jadala*(Once upon a moment)]: Hey there [SilverFire]
Well, now the character challenge link is up, but before it didn't give any indication one was running or if this page/idea/contest was even still all that active- apart from the comment box, whose latest comments aside from our own were dated a month ago.

I didn't see any links to enter the contests/challenges, nor any other information about the one currently running.

So, in other words, when I first looked this page it appeared to have been a fun idea at one point in time that had, for the most part, been abandoned. I DO see the Character Challenge page now, so I am assuming it is still being run (and someone replied to my comment) but it just does not appear to be all that organized to me...

I would however be very much interested in participating in future events, be there any.


2010-10-13 [SilverFire]: This page lists past entrants of past contests and the winners - of course the Character Challenge wasn't listed here, it was still running (it's listed here now because it is closed, and the winner has been announced). it WAS listed on Competitions, advertised on Text Adventures AND there was a news item about it when it began.

You've mistaken the function of this page, and that's why it doesn't seem very organised to you, I think. :P it's not supposed to do the things you're expecting it to do. :)

If you want to see what contests are running, watch Competitions and read the news (you get notified each time a news item is made) to see what contests have just been opened.

2011-04-15 [kians mummy]: so what is running now

2011-04-15 [SilverFire]: There are no RP contests running at the moment. :)

2011-04-15 [kians mummy]: will there ever be again

2011-04-15 [SilverFire]: Sure, at some point.

2011-04-15 [kians mummy]: ok

2011-04-24 [kians mummy]: still waiting

2011-04-24 [SilverFire]: Sometimes it's a whole year between RP contests. If you're going to comment here every ten days this could get tedious. ;)

2011-04-24 [kians mummy]: well i just think there should be an rp cintest once a month as people love to RP on here

2011-04-24 [SilverFire]: Rp contests usually last more than a month anyway, so that would be completely impractical. :P We hold RP contests less frequently than normal contests because they take far more effort and time on the part of the moderators to run than any other contests does. They're incredibly time- and effort-costuming.

2011-04-24 [kians mummy]: well let me do it then, i will do it for you, give me the privs and i will help

2011-04-24 [SilverFire]: You don't need any privs to help moderate an RP contest. Why don't you try running some of your own -non-official contests first? Then you could list them on your application to the crew as proof that you're capable of running contests. :)

2011-04-28 [kians mummy]: roleplayers of the month can anyone make this an official wiki as it will make a good one

2011-04-28 [Nioniel]: I just edited the page to arrange the badges better. O.o

2011-04-28 [Linderel]: Pssst, Nio. "denotes that people that have entered contests 3/5/7 times" <- something either mistyped or extra there.

2011-04-28 [kians mummy]: how come there is still no contests yet on here

2011-04-28 [Nioniel]: It was on the page before I faffed it. *fixes*

2011-04-28 [kians mummy]: thats better

2011-05-26 [Sagacious Turkey]: I honestly don't know why [Gluttony] got a badge, but since that's actually my username, could you just transfer the badge to my house instead?

2011-05-26 [SilverFire]: Possibly - but only if I can discover where/when that account got a badge. If I can't find it anywhere, I guess I'll just remove it. (and

2011-05-26 [SilverFire]: Ah, here we go, [Gluttony] entered the Champions' Tournament. I don't think you ever actually RPed though, just submitted two characters.

2011-05-26 [Sagacious Turkey]: What is [Gluttony]'s password anyway? It's not technically banned, so can I have it back?

2011-05-26 [SilverFire]: Have you changed it since last time [Hedda] reminded you what it was?

2011-05-26 [Gluttony]: Darn [Hedda], changing my passwords...

2011-11-23 [Avaz]: Man, being gone for several years makes me miss out on a bunch of stuff. This contest wasn't around before I left, and since I came back, I just found out about it today. *makes mental note of another thing to participate, once it opens up again* >_>

2011-11-23 [Fizban]: I do not know if there is goin to be another one, I my have missed it, but it doesn't seem like another one is in plans anytime soon.

2011-11-23 [SilverFire]: ...there's one running right now. <_<

2011-11-26 [Fizban]: Lol, well, glad I expressed my misinformed opinion.

Is is still accepting applicants or is it past that phase?

Oh, I thought that this page would have had something posted about next competition, can you direct me to the page that will keep me updated about this?



2011-11-26 [Nioniel]: Competitions has all of the active official competitions on it, as well as deadlines.

2011-11-26 [SilverFire]: Unfortunately te current contest is closed to new entrants.

2011-12-01 [Fizban]: Poop! Thanks for the information, Ill start watching competitions now! :P

2011-12-17 [Synirria]: This seems really interesting. Do you still do this?

2011-12-17 [SilverFire]: Yes. There is a role-playing contest running right now, in fact; unfortunately it's closed to new entrants.

2011-12-17 [Synirria]: How do I get into the next one if I'm interested?

2011-12-18 [SilverFire]: There will be a news item announcing the start of a new contest, and it will be lsited on Competitions. Each contest is different, but they usually start with a sign-up period of about a month where you submit a character bio.

2011-12-18 [Synirria]: Thanks so much.

2012-11-07 [Lirerial]: ummm.... i have a question... i'm still on the list for having done this once but i've played twice... my badge hasn't been changed either.

2013-03-28 [CuteCommander]: Is this ever happening again?

2013-03-28 [Chel.]: Oh man... modding that last contest was nuts.

2013-03-28 [SilverFire]: Yeah, no one believes how hard those contests are to mod until they try it themselves. <_<

2014-07-24 [Eyden13]: But it was so much fun!!!!!

2015-04-14 [kians mummy]: Seems so long ago. :)

2015-06-16 [Eyden13]: I second that!

2015-06-16 [Mortified Penguin]: No you don't.
