The Movies Forum Caption Contest

Caption Contests have a long history on the Plaza.  Threads in which members came up with funny subtitles for stills from the LOTR films were once a mainstay of the games/contests forum and even after its closure were regular features in the various Kingdom fora. In early 2009, Plaza admin Alkthoniel assumed control of the Movies Forum. She had risen to power through the Kingdoms and as such was familiar with games like Caption Contests.

One of Ally’s first actions as Movies admin, after testing the waters in the suggestions thread, was to found the Movies Forum Caption Contest. It was originally intended that each thread would run for between three and four weeks before a new one was opened, but it was rather erratic at first. After a few months Ally’s activity all but ceased, but when asked she handed the contest over to Eldorion.

Today, after the closure of the Kingdoms, the Movies Forum Caption Contest is the oldest such contest on the Plaza and one of the only ones still active. Look for it at the start of every month in the Movies Forum!
