Not in HD Presents: King of Commenting Competition – 2009
We have been overwhelmed with the astonishing quality of our site’s commenters. You guys put serious energy into your creations and it shows day in and day out. Comments of all varieties end up on our posts. Witty, humorous, informative, drunken rants (mostly drunken rants), combinations of all four, as well as some all-around extremely odd remarks.
But who is the most talented/ entertaining commenter?
That’s what we intend to find out.
How will it work? I thought you’d never ask.
From here on out the Not in HD staff will evaluate all of your comments and archive their favorites. The top eight nominees will be seeded in a single-elimination playoff system which will take place in October. The King of Commenting Championship match-up will be held the week following the World Series.
The winner will revel in their new title, establishing Not in HD as the turf he (or she) will reign over for the next year.
Oh and the winner will also win his/ her very own champion’s comment blog, which if used correctly will be a post composed of various rips and insults aimed towards the losing competitors.
Anything goes in terms of comment style and everything is eligible to be nominated. The more creative the better.
Some comment strategies: If you write something which will appeal to all of Not in HD’s writers you’ll have a good chance of getting voted into the competition. However if you make a strong push to appeal to one particular staff member, you may find yourself with an exemption – if you are lucky.
I’m not sayin’, I’m just sayin’.
We will provide competition updates along the way, so take nothing for granted and continue putting your best foot forward (ie: Insulting commenters like Root or Will from Korea – just be prepared for the wrath those guys will sling your way if you do go toe-to-toe with them. They punch below the belt.). It could be your next comment that pushes you over the top.
So release the hounds. And good luck to you all. You loonies are going to need it.
Who’s man enough (or woman to be man enough) to be the king?
