It's time! After the funny comments posted for Star Tweet #1, there was only one conclusion: These can only get funnier! So, here's our next photo. This time, we're talking Star Wars!

Let's see how those Twitter-like comments and conversations would go for this photo. You have until June 16th!

New Contest: Star Tweet 
Friday, May 8, 2009, 08:02 PM - Events, Games
With the release of the new Star Trek movie, there is now a new contest that will, hopefully, become a regular part of the FSF Community. What is it?

Well, what happens when you mix Star Trek with one of the biggest online social experiments? Why, it's Star Tweet!

The contest is simple. With each following contest, there will be the posting of a picture. Each week, you'll be asked to either provide a caption or give conversation dialog. BUT there is a catch! You must provide these responses in 140 characters or less, just like you would if you used Twitter! Posting them in a style that you would find on Twitter would be good, too. And whatever you do... make sure that you post something both tasteful and funny!

For example, if given this picture of Captain Janeway and asked to provide a caption, you could do something such as:
Even Paris can see: the hair just wasn't the same.

If you had to give a conversation, and you had the same photo, you could do something like:

Paris: @Janeway They didn't like your hair. :( EMH FTL
Janeway: @Paris Remind me to delete it when back. thx.

The goal is for you to post something funny! All responses will be looked through and the top 5 entries will be chosen and posted to the FSF front page at the end of the contest. Each photo will allow for 2 weeks of entries.

To give an entry, simply post a comment to the blog post in question. It's that easy!

The Return of the Blog... 
Wednesday, May 6, 2009, 08:51 AM - Events, Contests, Other
I can't believe how long it has been since this was updated. Well, it's time to get using this blog again! In fact, upcoming contests will be using the FSF Blog system, whether you will be posting on this blog OR posting on your own!

We've had some good events lately. The 2009 Fleet Awards were a blast! Each fleet had some good awards to give out, and many won some well deserved recognition! It almost makes me wish the Shuni's were here already! Alas, we must wait for those.

In any case, look forward to some contests coming very soon.

The Shunis! 
Monday, August 25, 2008, 09:55 AM - Events
We're coming up quickly to the Shuni Awards for 2008! This event is when we find both people that deserve recognition for wonderful things as well as people that might be embarrassed for being known for certain things (such as the Most Clueless Host).

It is ALWAYS a fun event! Typically, it happens somewhere around August (including a week or two into July or September). This year, it looks like it'll be somewhere in the first week of September. A poll will be going up soon to find out when, exactly.

Looking forward to the event this year? Head on over to the FSF Message Boards and start placing some nominations!

I can't believe it! There are actually people interested in Facebook! It's like...people use it or something.

Seriously, if you haven't heard, you can get 50 My Points by November 31st if you join the FSF group on Facebook. It'll be a nice place for us to get to know each other, plus a great way to advertise trivia games (and maybe other events, meet-ups, etc). Check it out!

From Jeopardy to...? 
Saturday, October 20, 2007, 07:41 AM - Events, Trivia, Games
So our last community event was in the style of Jeopardy. We had a decent turn out, though I think we could've done better. Maybe our next game will have more players!

That is, if the game show we style it after can have many players. I'm thinking it'll be limited to... maybe ten? We'll find out very, very soon. ;)

Blogging for My Points 
Saturday, May 5, 2007, 02:21 PM - General, Other, FSF Site
It's interesting how quickly something picks up when people are offered compensation or rewards. In this case, people now get points for blogging. It's nice seeing more and more usage of the FSF Blogs (even if I didn't do anything to help get them set up *-) ).

So what else can the blogs be used for, now? IC logs? RPing? More contests? I suppose there is more that these blogs could be used for than we've considered yet. My only hope is that, with the influx of users will come an influx of ideas. Ideas help not only with OOC matters, but they also give us new things to incorporate into our IC lives.

So what will you see on a blog that will reach your mind/heart? Will it be a touching survivor story? Or will it be an informative blog about blogging for My Points? Whatever it is, let's hope these blogs are used wisely and not just for point gathering.

Do you have any ideas on what we can do with the blogs? Any contest/RP ideas? Leave a comment!
