Hello everyone, before I get to the winners, I have an announcement to make.
This is going to be my final time running this Caption Contest. Now, before you ask, No, this contest isn't ending. Ln X
will be picking up the baton and taking this contest over.
Nearly 4 years ago now, I wanted very much to get more involved with the Caption Contests here on the TrekBBS and saw that there was a series very near and dear to me that had no Caption Contest and hadn't for quite some time. I started one, not knowing if anyone would pay much attention to it or even post, although I grant you that I had high hopes.
What happened? You, the members of the TrekBBS came out in strong support, taking the contest from being an experiment to a normal and expected part of the TrekBBS. Before I go any further, I want to say Thank You for that. I have been humbled and honored for the last 4 years by the continued humor, good wishes and participation by those who post in this contest.
As time has gone on, the demands on my time have gotten greater, making it tougher to maintain a set schedule for starting and ending contests. For me, there's not a lot of ways to cut down the time required, because it would mean not giving the judging and photo selection the proper amount of thought and time it needs and I simply won't do that.
A generous offer was extended to me by Ln X
, and after thinking about it over the last couple of weeks, I decided to accept. It's tough for me, as the DS9 contest was the first contest I ever ran on this forum, and now I'm handing it off to another. It's also a little weird because I'll be leaving the one contest I run that I started from day one, I inherited TNG and Movies I-X.
It's good for the caption contests to be in the hands of multiple people and between the DS9, TNG and Movies I-X contests, I've had a bit of a monopoly on them. Change is good and can make it so that there's more room for different views and different types of humor to get their time and wins.
Now, before you start to wonder as I'm sure you are, Is this the Beginning of the end for LeadHead
? I say, no way. I've been a member of the TrekBBS for 12 years now, I'm here to stay. In fact, I think very strongly that giving this contest to a new person will give it some new energy and make it easier for me to stay consistent on my other contests.
So, here's how the switch will take place, I've judged the winners of the last contest and selected the next photos. After that, it'll be Ln X
