    So I have around 1.3k OgreCoins and counting....so I'm gonna give them all away with a small contest :).

    Contest rules:

    #1: Post here if you want in.

    #2: Post here why you should have them (try to make it a quality post, good grammar and punctuation).

    #3: On June 28th I will select 3 well written posts, and the posters of those posts shall receive them.

    Prizes:

    1st place: 500 coins.
    2nd place: 250 coins.
    3rd place: 100.

    This contest is only available to Ogre Regulars and above (I will make some exceptions though).

    ----------
    Honorable mentions:

    Jared.
    Vocal.
    Saskue2490.


    P.S. I'm doing this to promote good grammar and punctuation, which I find is lacking now a days.

    Dear Adrian,

    So you committed yourself to the cause of improving grammar and punctuation in this place. I admit I think this is a very brave thing to do. And I am the first one to support your cause. Another thing I can not fail to mention is the fact that I join this contest not for the prices but for the fact that the idea amuses me.
    This concludes my little story, I hope it is does not hurt your tender eyes.

    Regards,
    Kingsfield

    P.S. And this for a non-native (I am Dutch) ;)

    I guess I'll enter.

    I'd like coins in order to buy cards that will facilitate victories over Ogre King. As the ruler of the Wall of Shame, I want to garner some real credibility rather than just hold a joke title. In addition, the idea of this contest is certainly interesting. Barring its obvious invitation to trolling, I completely agree with the premise behind it. Good grammar certainly is lacking.

    Also, I love how I can basically type as I normally do and still have a chance here.

    Thanks for offering this!

    Vocal's story:

    One glorious morning in the land of Coca-Cola, Mr Drunk went to work at the Coca-Cola factory. He drove in his fancy limo with a bottle of Coca-Cola in his hand. In 15 minutes he had got to work.

    At work he worked the machines and fixed them when needed. He was a very talented mechanic so he got extra pay. While he worked he talked to his pet giraffe, Cody. He had finished a good day of work for today.

    Once he got home he lay on his couch like a dead raccoon. He watched Jersey Shore as he drank Coca-Cola and ate barbecue flavored chips. The bell stuck 7pm and that was his bedtime. So Mr. Drunk went to bed like a good little boy.

    THE END

    Hi Adrian!

    I am posting here, not because I want the prize, but because I like the concept of your little event. In fact, I haven't used most of my points yet except for a few beginner packs for Triple Triad. If there are others who really need those points, you can give the coins to them.
    Anyway, as I mentioned, I like your event. It is evident that forum posts nowadays usually do not obey the correct grammar and punctuation. This is not only true in GameOgre, but in many other sites as well. Thus, I admire your initiative in giving out your hard earned points to promote the use of correct grammar.



    Hahahaha. Actually, as some people may have noticed, most of my posts follow correct grammar and punctuation. Somehow, though, it feels a little strange writing in correct form specifically for an event such as this. Anyway, good luck guys! Let's support Adrian's event. More participants would mean more success for his event.

    I want to enter. I believe that I should have the coins because I asked very nicely. I will use the coins for my special Beat the Ogre King fund.

    I'll join in, but I don't really care if I win or not. I just want to win the Coca-Cola contest.
    Here's my story:

    Coca-Cola is very good. So good that a man named Adams went to Wal-mart and bought a whole house full of them. He was addicted to Coca-Cola.
    On June 26th, he started his journey of finishing every last Coca-Cola in his house. His house was very full. There was over 9,000 bottles of Coca-Cola . He drank 15 bottles a day.
    By July 27th, he weighed about 300 lbs. more than he had on June 26th. On July 28, he died. The End

    But, seriously, I would like the Ogre Coins to beat the Ogre King.
