Hello, everyone. ON the forums i have became well known for my GSA award. IT is loosely based of AlexChance's community appreciation award but in a different format with different prizes. I recently announced on my profile that I will be delaying the competition until 2015 but I am having second thoughts. I decided not to go for the 1 million grand prize and settle for a 300k grand prize and at least 18 spies versus last years 10 spies. Last years competition went well but I had a few problems.2 spies banned or quitmany spies had problems finding peoplethe contest became a popularity contestI never got to talk with much of the contestantsIn this thread I want you to answer some questions and tell me what i should change or not change this year. Here is what i want you to sayWhat month should the contest be inhow many spies should i haveshould there be a section per server or just the entire empireshould the prizes be cash or itemsshould i have a required interview with every nomineewhat should i do to make it a non-popularity contestshould i keep "The Good Samaritan Award" as the title?Anything else you want to add or sayAll feedback is appreciated and if you don't want to say something out loud, pm me. You will not hurt my feelings if i get harsh feedback, it is welcomed, not disapproved of. For any questions about it state it in the thread and i will respond with a valid answer.I plan to do a new GSA and i want it to be better than the last. Behind the scene there was some trouble and this year must be more organized than the last. This time I might also make it a 2 month period to give spies extra time to scout out good people. As usual I will not pick any player accept for the winner. I will use my alt to spy on the finalists but only spies will pick nominees to avoid other players acting bias around me.EDITS: What i have learned so far2-3 spies per serverapprove who spies pickinterview every spy. Still do it by serverI will try to find a way to get a mob arena longbow for the main prize along with some cash. there will still be a part 1 and 2. part one will be mainly cash and part 2 will include the longbow with maybe an extra 10kI should try during the summer monthsMore input is needed and thanks to everyone so far. Should i try to buy a longbow and a 10k prize or 200k in money and maybe some EMC rare?
