Contest : SPOT THE FUCK UPS! Closed for new entries

Postby scrubbo on Tue May 24, 2005 8:29 am

Okie dokey, I'm doing a contest!

Here it is :

Spot the Fuck ups! I'm making my comics ready for book publication. Which means I should fix all the typos, art mistakes, (missing choker on Mary, background fill screwups, etc) and general snafus in the comics. Here are the details :

1) The mistakes need to be in the comics themselves. Mistakes in the rants won't count because they aren't going in the book. (Although some comics will be annotated.)

2) All mistakes need to be presented in this format :

Strip Number - mm/dd/yyyy - Description

For instance :

Strip 234 - 05/09/2005 - Damian's moustache is missing in 4th panel.

Please include panels affected by the mistake. (No, you can't use that one as the comic isn't going to be in the book!) To find the date for a strip, just look at the rant below or look at the file name in your URL bar. It follows the format of YYYYMMDD.html in the url bar. One mistake to a line, please!

3) Submit multiple mistakes in a single comic seperately. That will improve your odds of winning as whoever gets the most mistakes wins the prize! So if you spot 3 typos, make sure you put them on seperate lines.

4) Somethings that might be viewed as a mistake are actually intentional, such as paintings 'changing' from panel to panel or a particular grammatical error in what somebody is saying. Submit whatever you think is an error, but just know that it might not make the official list.

5) ONLY ONE SUBMISSION! Make sure you grab all the mistakes you can right off the bat. I won't have time to add every correction to your list as you mail in the mistake you missed. So be thorough! Please don't send multiple entries through different e-mail addresses, either. If I find out you did, I'll have to throw out all your entries. It's just not fair to other readers to try and win multiple prizes, eh?

6) Only comics #1 - #220 will be in the book, so only errors on those comics will be accepted for the contest. (Errors for strips past 220 are appreciated, though! I should fix them as I fix the other comics anyway!)

7) Prizes will be determined by who spots the most errors. Ties will be determined by the order in which the entries were recieved. The prizes are as follows :

1st) A signed book, T-shirt, and a watercolored character of your choice.
2nd) A signed book, T-shirt, and a character sketch of your choice.
3rd ) A signed book and character sketch.

8) Entries must be mailed to scrubbo@gmail.com with the title 'Filthy Lies Contest' in the subject line. Entries should have your e-mail included in the text of the message, as well as your name and a shipping address.

9) All entries must be recieved by Midnight June 30th. I'll announce the winner as soon as I can afterwards. (Depends on how many entries I get, now doesn't it?)

10) If you're related to me, you can't win. But you can still e-mail mistakes in an attempt to mock me until I cry.

11) If you're dating me, you can't win. But I will bake you cookies.

12) You can only win one prize. Didn't I say that above? :) You silly buggers!

Thanks! And good luck!

Update :
Thanks guys! You did a great job! I'm finishing compiling the list and should have winners announced by the end of the month... and hopefully I'll have the book finished then too! Then I need to print.... and ... uh... yah. It'll be awhile before you get the books, but they're coming!

Clarification, please? When you say "seperately" (which should be "separately", by the way, not that I'm warming up for this or anything), you mean all in a single email, but with multiple entries in the single email?

So kind of like this:
Forum post #1803052 - 05/24/2005 - "Somethings" should be two words, "Some things"
right? ;)

Not that I'm warming up or anything.

P.S. And you're from Wisconsin too? Coolness. I hadn't realized that while devouring the archives.

Yes, one e-mail. That way I can keep track of how many errors are found by each person easily. And on seperate lines to make sure I don't count two errors you found as one.

so this :
254 - 06/13/2005 - Word "flamabal" mispelled and Damian's head upside down.

should be presented like this :
254 - 06/13/2005 - Word "flamabal" mispelled
254 - 06/13/2005 - Damian's head upside down.

That will insure you get full credit for your submissions. :)


P.S. And you're from Wisconsin too? Coolness. I hadn't realized that while devouring the archives.


Yup. In lurverly Madison, Wisconsin going to gradschool.

Location is unimportant. As long as USPS or UPS can ship it there, I'll ship it to ya! So yes, internationals can win. So go all you crazy non-americans! POINT OUT MY SHORTCOMINGS!

You should enter the contest even if you plan on buying a book. Then you can hand your extra one off to any easily offened friends and family members. :D

What, like, when you're trying to get stuff down off the top shelf? No, I have to use a stool.

In the June 25, 1975, comic, Beefsteak appears in the first panel as a New York cut T-Bone. In the very next panel, however, he is clearly a shoulder roast.
The savior of billions (Norman Borlaug) dying barely rated a mention in the news this year. Farrah Fawcett wore a bikini well back in the 70s and she got international coverage. Good job, society.

I'm not going to even pretend to try and understand the logic behind that.

messed up?

Postby Lamech on Wed Jun 29, 2005 6:26 am

6/29/2005

Outside of this contest but still a mess up. Today's comic, last pane? I cant even tell if its intentional or just very bad grammar. "What am Hell I talking about?" = "What the Hell am I talking about?"

but its still better than "Whut I Hell a boot u ta-uhlk Wit boots"
