Rift Contest "winners"?Follow

After seeing the posts made by the "winners" I was curious as to how they were selected. Only one seemed worthy to be included and that one was the one made from vacid..
I could unsterstand if they were going to seleect these at random then I would not have put any thought into mine.
The following were some of my better posts many of which I think are far better then what was selected. Thier were also many others that posted submissions that were much better then the selected ones. If your going to have a contest do a good job picking the winners. This contest was either judged badly or fixed.

Im not pointing any fingers but I think someone here needs to lay off the steroids.

The Roshambo Champion takes on new challengers

Was not Sir Robin the Brave just here with us?

Jack: More giants? **** those Magic Beans! I want my cow back

Now you run in there and distract him while I figure out a strat.

unseen party member creeping away: Guys I got your back...way back.

Giant: I came to kick *** and chew bubblegum, and I'm all out of bubblegum.

whoever said "theres nothing to fear but fear itself" never met this guy

Hows it hanging? Um nevermind

Honey I think I shrunk the kids (the video game)

THE BIGGER THEY ARE THE HARDER THEY FALL.

If you're going to enter a contest based on subjective criteria, don't be butthurt when your submissions aren't selected. It's bad form.

That's pretty much what I got out of your post, anyways.

it's people like you that make it difficult for companies to give back to their customers. you turn a fun community contest into a liberal fight for justness. fail to you my friend.

for what it's worth, your own entries are either sad attempts at ripping off pop humor or otherwise nobody get's it and it's just not funny.

hey OP, i just took a dookie and came up with new ones for you:

"epeen -1"
"i think i took a wrong turn at Wintergrasp"
"don't cross the streams!"
"say WHAT again, motherf@cker"

see if you can enter these retroactively, Happy Mother's Day.

Wasnt that I didnt win I can accept that it was that for the excetion of one all the other winners sucked. There were plenty of other entries by other people that would have deserved to win as well. I agree that this sort of thing can be very subjective however that cannot account for the degree to which the winning submissions sucked.

How dare people not agree with your idea of what is good and what is bad!

The contest rules are here:

This was one of the rare subjective contests. Most that occur are random. In this particular contest members of the staff picked their favorites, which were not necessarily the ones you wrote. Don't be a sore loser, it makes you look like a whiner.
