SONM Caption Competition - Final Results!

Post by GuitarHero » Tue Dec 01, 2015 2:39 pm

*Credit to Jackanapes for the Banner*
I've decided to bring this back, after a LONG slumber so I hope people have good fun with it!
This is a competition, where I, your friendly neighbourhood GuitarHero, post a gaming-related image twice a week (will I regret specifying a schedule? Most likely). The results for the previous week will be revealed at the same time. Please feel free to comment on other people's captions, commenting on how witty and hilarious (or not) you find them. There are no sign-ups (unless people want a PMing list, something I did for the previous iteration back in the day) so anyone can join!
Rules
There aren't many but I just thought I'd put a few:
  • Only one entry per round
  • If you put an entry in, but then you want to change your answer please post your new answer and tell me to ignore your old answer
  • Please abide within the Forum Rules
  • Please don't post in the thread "when are the results up?", I maybe away doing something, so might not be able to post the results up straight away
  • Please try to use decent grammar (unless for comic effect)

Scoring
The scoring will work like this:
  • Every Normal round the scoring will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd situation, with 1st getting 3 points, 2nd getting 2 points and 3rd getting 1 point
  • Every five rounds from Round 5 (Round 5, 10, 15 etc.) the scoring will go from 1st to 6th, with 1st getting 6 points and 6th getting 1 point

I'll see how popular this is before I commit to how long a "Series" is; on the previous iteration I think it lasted about 30 images before the scores were reset. Also, if this does get popular I may increase it to two images a week. -16/01/2015 Yep, popular enough for 2 a week

I also intend to do a spreadsheet rather than several posts of statistics, as I feel like that will be much more efficient and easy to change than what I did before. I love statistics, just FYI!

Original Thread
I'd just like to add here that I'd like to give a big thank you to whoever archived the original thread, as most of this is just copy and pasted from there. I even managed to find 3 of the 4 old banners too, which is a big help!

I used this post for entries in the previous iteration, but I'm struggling to remember why so as you may have noticed I've stopped doing this. I'll try and use this post for something else, possibly an archive.

I've also swapped the leaderboard with this post, just so its higher up and clearer.

Ah, geengy I remember you entering too - I think you entered the very first round, even.

I'll leave this round open till Tuesday, and then we can move on to the next fantabulous image

Round 1 Result and Round 2 Image!

Post by GuitarHero » Tue Dec 08, 2015 7:57 pm

A good amount of entries to start with, attacking the image with (sometimes attempts at) humour from different angles.

So without further ado here are the very first results!
1st) OrangeRakoon - Handhelds hold hands
Gotta love the awesome alliteration.
2nd) Ape - Sonic the Hedgehog and his grandfather infiltrate Nintendo's headquarters as an act of revenge by disguising themselves as Nintendo consoles.
I didn't notice their feet were like Sonic's before I read this!
3rd) mewthree - The Game Boy takes his grandson out to get a go at his touch controls while his grandson presses his buttons.
As quite a few of you went for the creepy old man vibe (nothing can ever be taken innocently on here... :lol:), I thought this was the best of those.

So here is the next image for you to come up with witticisms for:

Good luck!
