As we have mentioned here a couple of times in the past, across Wikia we are often leading initiatives, events and contests to help build community and wiki excitement. This week we wanted to update community central on some of the latest fun that is going on.
True Blood Tagline Contest
True Blood Wiki ran a True Blood Tagline Contest last week in honor of the Season 3 finale on Sunday night. To enter, Truebies had to create a tagline for a pretend True Blood promo poster featuring Crystal the shape-shifting werepanther, and oh my Godric there were some great one-liners! Some of our favorites included, 'PILF', 'Some girls always know what to were', and 'The Night Shift.' The True Blood Wiki staff narrowed submissions down from over 200 fangtastic taglines to the top ten, and the True Blood community voted to pick a winner!
And the winner is... Mary Westbrook! To find out the winning tagline, please visit the contest page. Congrats to Mary! Enjoy your True Blood Prize Pack!
Healthy Recipes Wiki Recipe Contest
