Intro

I tried to do this 2 years ago to coincide with the Winter Olympics, but it fizzled out due, in part, to me trying to do too much with it. That being said, I am willing to try it again, with a slimmed down program, if there is enough interest. I can run all or none of the six suggested event categories, depending again on levels of interest; if there is not enough interest to run at least 3 events (not necessarily event categories), however, I won't be doing this. I would let people double or triple enter, as well, so if you're interested in several events, say so.

So, if you are interested and willing to participate, please indicate your interest below, and specify what event(s) you would be interested in doing.

Suggested Event Categories

1. Voting Contests

A. Debate Voting

Competitors would place 3 debate votes during the competition time, and would submit those votes to me. I would select a panel of judges to score those votes, and eliminate all but four competitors from the pool based on those initial scores. Then, the remain four competitors would place one further vote, and the judges would score those votes to determine medal positions. I would need at least 7 people to express interest to run this event.

This event would not only incentivize good voting, but competitors could also request feedback on their votes with the score results, and I would pass on whatever feedback the judges gave to the voters. This creates a great learning opportunity for people.

B. Voting Analysis

Contestants would analyze 3 votes that had been previously cast (and whose writers acquiesce), and would submit those analyses to me. I would select a panel of judges to score those analyses, and eliminate all but four contestants from the pool based on those initial scores. Then, the remain four contestants would make 1 further analysis, and the judges would score that analysis to determine medal positions. I would need at least 7 people to express interest to run this event.

2. Debating Competitions

A. Debate Tournament

I would need 8, 12, 16 people to offer this event. If 12 or 16 people sign up, I would model this event off of Olympic tournament events. People would be sorted into four groups of 3 or 4. The 4 highest ranked people would each have a group to themselves, and all others would be randomly added to each group to fill up the slots. The winner of each group will advance to a semi-final round. The semi-final winners will progress to a final, and the losers will progress to a bronze medal match. If there are 8 people who sign up, I will simply seed people into a single-elimination bracket by ELO (high-low pairings) and then let the tournament play out.

B. Team Debate Tournament

I would need 6, 8, or 12 entries to run this. Teams/entries would consist of 2-3 people working together on a debate. If I had 6 or 8 entries, I would organize them into two groups. The two highest seeds would not share a group, but all other slots would be randomly decided. The top two in each group would advance to the semi-final, with the winner of each group facing the second-place finisher of the other. Winning semi-finalists would advance to a final round, and losing semi-finalists would advance to the bronze medal match. If there were 12 people, I would run it in the same manner as the non-team tournament.

This might be a great way to get some great debates on the site, in addition to the various regular tournaments that are in progress.

3. Fan Fic Contests

I would need at least 6 entries in any of the following sub-categories to run any of them.

A. Short-Form Story

Competitors would write a short story between 6,000 and 16,000 characters. No more than 1,000 characters of these stories can be something other than original content (e.g. quotes of other works). I would assemble a panel of judges to score these stories to decide the medalists. Judges would be encouraged to factor in things like creativity, grammar, plot development, lieability, and so forth, though there would be no specific rubric.

B. Long-Form Story

Competitors would write a short story between 17,000 and 32,000 characters. No more than 1,000 characters of these stories can be something other than original content (e.g. quotes of other works). The story must be organized into at least two discrete segments (e.g. chapters, books). I would assemble a panel of judges to score these stories to decide the medalists. Each story would get three scores: one for each segment, and one for the overall story, to reflect both the efforts of each chapter and the success of the overarching plot. Judges would be encouraged to factor in things like creativity, grammar, plot development, lieability, and so forth, though there would be no specific rubric.

C. Team Story

Competitors would work in Teams of 2-4; a single team counts as an entry. Teams would write a short story between 12,000 and 24,000 characters. No more than 1,000 characters of these stories can be something other than original content (e.g. quotes of other works). The story may be organized into at least two discrete segments, though that is not required. I would assemble a panel of judges to score these stories to decide the medalists. Judges would be encouraged to factor in things like creativity, grammar, plot development, likeability, and so forth, though there would be no specific rubric.

This may help build on DDO's great history of fan fiction, and would be an excellent outlet for people to generate creative, fun, and entertaining content for the site.

4. Forum Contest

Contestants would make 6 forum posts during the competition time, and would submit those posts to me. Two of those posts (but not more than two) must be OPs. I would select a panel of judges to score those posts (OPs would be weighted more heavily), and eliminate all but four contestants from the pool based on those initial scores. Then, the remain four contestants would make 3 further posts (1 of which must be an OP), and the judges would score those posts to determine medal positions. I would need at least 7 people to express interest to run this event.

My hope here is that this would generate excellent forum posts, and, hopefully, non-competitors would get involved in the discussions, boosting overall quality forum participation.

5. Artistic Competition

Contestants would compete based on their artistic efforts. "Artistic efforts" would be broadly interpreted, and would include things like singing, rapping, and drawing. If we get enough people interested in competing in a specific art discipline (like rap, for instance) we would hold a "Rap Tournament" specifically. If not, I would just throw all of these disciplines into a single pot, and have a panel of judges score entries. If people are interested in this event, please specify 1-3 disciplines that you would be interested in doing. I would need at least 6 people to host this event, or 6 people per discipline to hold discipline-specific competitions.

I know many people on DDO are artistically gifted, and I've occasionally seen art debates or sing-offs, and so forth, and I think it would be nice to give people interested in these kinds of things a platform to show-off their great talents.

6. Variety Events

A. Triathlon

Competitors would make 8 forum posts, do 2 debates, and cast 4 votes. No more than 4 forum posts, 1 debate, or 2 votes from other DDOlympic events could be counted for this event. Team entries cannot be counted for individual credit. Each single forum post would could for 50 points, each debate would count for 200 points, and each vote would count for 100 points. Judges would assess the scores, and determine the medalists based on the scores.

B. Quadrathlon

Competitors would have a choice between doing any of the following: making 8 forum posts, doing 2 debates, casting 4 votes, analyzing 4 votes, or writing a long-form story. No more than 4 forum posts, 1 debate, 2 votes, 2 vote analyses, or 1 long-form story from other DDO from other DDOlympic events could be counted for this event. Team entries cannot be counted for individual credit. Each single forum post would could for 50 points, each debate would count for 200 points, and each vote and analysis would count for 100 points, and each story segment would count for 150 points (plus 100 points for overall story quality). Judges would assess the scores, and determine the medalists based on the scores.

I would need 6 people to run either of the variety events.

Conclusion

If you're interested in any category of event, or in any sub-event within a category, please let me know below. If you're interested in multiple events, list all those in which you have an interest. I would love to run this if their are enough takers. Thank you!

If the DDOlympics were pretty much centered around fanfictions exclusively, then I would absolutely participate. But if a fanfiction competition would be drowned out by 12 other events/competitions revolving around debating and voting, then I would think twice about participating since anything I come up with would just get drowned out in the noise

I've been waiting for an excuse to share a few of my short stories... so I'd also be interested in this! I'm not sure which one yet, but if this picks up some speed I'll seriously consider which portion I want to compete in and let you know.

You would still get an award medal for winning...and your own ceremony thread... And, I seriously doubt there will be enough interest to run more than a handful of other events.

I agree, but I think it is possible. I would rather have enough singers or enough artists to do discipline-specific events to avoid that problem, however.

Competitors would have a choice between doing any of the following: making 8 forum posts, doing 2 debates, casting 4 votes, analyzing 4 votes, or writing a long-form story. No more than 4 forum posts, 1 debate, 2 votes, 2 vote analyses, or 1 long-form story from other DDO from other DDOlympic events could be counted for this event. Team entries cannot be counted for individual credit. Each single forum post would could for 50 points, each debate would count for 200 points, and each vote and analysis would count for 100 points, and each story segment would count for 150 points (plus 100 points for overall story quality). Judges would assess the scores, and determine the medalists based on the scores.

I would need 6 people to run either of the variety events.

Conclusion

If you're interested in any category of event, or in any sub-event within a category, please let me know below. If you're interested in multiple events, list all those in which you have an interest. I would love to run this if their are enough takers. Thank you!

Count me in for sure!
