Contest: A Blast From The Past! Sponsored by NZXT


http://www.thebestcasescenario.com/slaveofconvention/banners/competitions/blastfromthepast.png (http://www.thebestcasescenario.com/frontpage/?q=node/487)

Every once and a while, I take a look through some of the older mods around here. Call me nostalgic, old-fashioned, or whatever you like, but I prefer to think of it as a search for inspiration. Modding has evolved from these creations, and as such, they are what we build on. In this contest, we challenge you to search for inspiration! ...more (http://www.thebestcasescenario.com/frontpage/?q=node/487)...

<!--break-->

How well do you remember the previous projects here on TheBestCaseScenario? This contest will test both your recollection and your searching ability. Contestants (that's you!) will be answering questions based on previous projects, with the occasional random, non-modding related question thrown in. For this contest we have five (yes 5!) prizes to give away, ranging from a Hades Case (http://www.nzxt.com/new/product_detail.php?series_name=Crafted+Series&series=2&id=45) to some Premium Cables. (http://www.nzxt.com/new/product.php?series_name=Premium+Cables&series=13)

NZXT has partnered with us to provide this entertaining competition to show where modding got its roots. They have given us the following prizes:

Rules


Contest participants must be registered members of TBCS.
Any non staff member of TBCS may participate.
Only contestants who score 100% will be added to the drawing.
One entry per member. (This means you must score 100% on your first try. Any score after your first try will be tossed out by the system)
Due to shipping restrictions, this contest is limited to members residing in the USA and Canada only.
Contest runs from 12:01am, 21 April 2010 till 11:59pm on 5 May 2010. (all times CST)


How to enter

Members wishing to participate in this contest must visit worklogs from the past to answer questions on a quiz. The Quiz will consist of 20 questions ranging from easy to moderately hard. Take your time and research past worklogs for the correct answers as only those who score 100% will be entered in the drawing. This is not a timed test.

The contest closes on 5 May 2010. All those scoring 100% on the quiz will have their name entered in the random drawing which will be held on 6 May 2010 by our own OvRiDe. The Drawing will be recorded on video and posted in this thread on or before 7 May 2010. The 5 names who are drawn will receive prizes in descending order. IE: First name drawn = First place prize.

Ok, guys and gals, the contest is officially underway!

Take your time and do some research! You get one shot at the drawing so make it count!

Good luck to all of you.

I'm going to enter for sure, I'll have time tomorrow to do it too.

Also, typo in first post, "east to moderately hard." Should be "easy."

fixed it up on here, I have no power for the front page though.

OvRiDe
04-21-2010, 03:19 AM
Sorry.. typo is fixed.

I deleted my post about the question that had 2 correct answers. I re-examined the question and found that I made a mistake and there is only one correct answer.

So, remember folks, do your research, take your time, and get in the drawing!!

I can not stress it enough guys. Take your time and research. Every answer can be found if you do some digging and reading. There is no time limit on the test.

im pretti sure i know which one it counted wrong, i hit back and changed one of my answers.

95% lol, not sure what I missed. I thought I had them all right. Thanks anyway guys! What a great idea. I definitely missed and forgotten a few of these mods. The starfield one (no I'm not telling) was very cool.

guhh... stuck at 95%......

d_stilgar
04-21-2010, 03:47 PM
wtf is up with the first question? I thought I had it right, but now that I'm looking at the blast door specific question I'm doubting myself. Who the heck ever tried to replicate doom 3? Where is that on the site? how did I miss that?

Edit: found it.

d_stilgar
04-21-2010, 04:09 PM
Also, I think this question has two correct answers.

What is on the left side panel of Defyant's 'HP Resurrection II Evolution'?

I won't say which two I think are correct though.

All done. I win!

All you 95%'ers, don't get too disheartened just yet. We have five prizes from our competition sponsor NZXT to give out in this competition. If we get less than five 100% responses, we will end up having a second draw for any remaining prizes from everyone who scores 95%. It's only fair that the top prizes go to the people who do score the full 100%, but as they say, it ain't over yet....

Great contest. Always love the scavenger hunt things, this was nice because
we were given immediate reply as to our correct answers.

There is so many awesome work logs here I think I could spend a month easily just checking them all, & it's impossible to not get inspired here 8).

I am very pleased that you guys like this one so much. A lot of work went into getting it together. So make sure you give some rep to the Mods, Journos and Admins over the next few days. They pulled this off like Rock Stars!!!

If you have not entered the contest yet there is still plenty of time. a 100% score is more than possible and the last few post in this thread prove it. Just take your time, use the resources the site provides and you will be fine.

For their wifi, turn off your wireless card and turn it back on, it should help.

No, it's not a problem with their wifi; it's actually one of their computers...I'm using mom's office pc while she's in class.

W00T more 100% scores. Keep it up guys. For those of you who did not score 100% there is always another contest next month.

And no we can not swap cases for the new camo one. These prizes were set aside a month ago.

I personally like the theme of the next contest better then this one.

what is it? I'll tell you if I like it or not lol

OvRiDe
04-22-2010, 08:13 PM
Well only an idea has been proposed. There is no definite theme for the next contest as of yet. There will be a contest, and its got some pretty cool prizes as well!

Trace
04-22-2010, 10:02 PM
OvRiDe is right, I'm ahead of myself. So far, all of the proposals are better IMO.

d_stilgar

Hopefully I'll hear back from the Novint guy soon so they don't overlap.

StormRider
04-22-2010, 10:36 PM
lol, please ignore my first entry(wasn't finished), because I accidentally closed it. stupid internet errors

OvRiDe
04-22-2010, 11:36 PM
Hopefully I'll hear back from the Novint guy soon so they don't overlap.

No worries, since the Novint contest is not an official TBCS contest, as in it is being held by a member and not Staff, there should be no problems if there is any overlap.

StormRider
04-22-2010, 11:55 PM
darn it, only missed one. oh well, there's always next month

04-23-2010, 12:47 AM

Still, I don't want people to not participate if they feel they have to choose one over another. I hope I win this one though!

Joonce
04-23-2010, 01:27 AM
My questions started disappearing at 18... so I started over. My first one shouldn't count right? I never finished.
Anyway I got 100%!

d_stilgar
04-23-2010, 01:37 AM
That's how mine was. The connection or something was weird. In any case I had hit the back button and was changing answers on a few questions, so I got all the way through the second time. I'm pretty sure my 100% counted but who knows. Can we get a list of everyone that is in the drawing?

OvRiDe
04-23-2010, 03:46 AM
I will post a final list of those entered the drawing at the end of the contest, but neither of you have anything to worry about ;)

I didn't need tons of motivation to go back and look at some really cool work logs. It's making me think I should make another list like the "best cases ever" but "best worklogs ever."

Time is running out guys. You have until 5 May 2010 to get your entries in!!!!!

StormRider
04-26-2010, 07:09 PM
does accidentally exiting out of a question make it wrong?
I just forgot to ask, since the night I took it I accidentally switched from the question to the TBCS featured worklogs section, then switched back

SXRguyinMA
04-26-2010, 07:15 PM

well seeing that its April 26th I'd say time ran out a few weeks ago :D

AAACK! I was taking this quiz (finally, lol) and it froze on me! now all I get is a blank white page!! grr.

EDIT: it was after I hit submit on question 13.

hit back a few times, and it took me to question 11 ok. so I just re-answered it. hope that doesn't disqualify me, especially when it was the stupid website's fault! lol

I think I found a problem with one of the questions. I dont know where I should submit the issue though. /shrug. I researched every question and there is one that doesn't seem to have a correct answer, and I had to dig deep for it. Im wondering if the one's who got the 95% and 90% are victims of this question(should it be wrong).

StormRider
05-05-2010, 01:19 AM

Contest Has Ended!

As with everything else in life, all good things must come to an end. The time for contest entries has come and past and we are no longer accepting scores from the test. The drawing will be held tomorrow for those of you who scored 100%. It will be filmed and posted. As to what time I do not know, but I promise that it will be up before midnight tomorrow.

Good luck to all who scored 100% and thanks to everyone who entered.

We will be holding a new contest sponsored by Prolimatech in about a week and a half so keep your eyes open for it.

05-07-2010, 09:20 AM
Full credit for the video goes to OvRiDe. Everything from the animations to the chroma key work was all him. He started setting up the shoot yesterday afternoon and wound up staying up until 4:30 am rendering it out after some equipment issues. So everyone give him some rep for that!

Congrats to the winners. I will be in touch with you later today via PM so I can get your shipping info for the prizes.
