The Contests ...At the end of each month, I will read through the posts for that month and pick out a few that I think are really good and put them to a vote of the membership. I usually select posts that spur discussion, ones that show a lot of work (see Gleowine's posts on Tenmon's music), show creativity (Junpei/Menasha/Chob123) ... or something that catches my eye. I reserve the right to give points to anyone for anything I feel is cool (Menasha's banner).
Prizes will be gift certificates through amazon or amazon.jp or whereever you can get Shinkai stuff.
Please contribute to the discussion o the forums I learn so much from you all and it's fun to discuss Shinkai with you all.
