Hear ye, Hear ye,

Today we announce the Cheerful Ghost Borderlands 2 Haiku Contest

To celebrate the upcoming Borderlands 2 launch on September 18th, Cheerful Ghost is having a Borderlands 2 Haiku Contest. You have two chances to win a copy of Borderlands 2 on Steam and the details are as follows:

  1. We are giving away one copy of Borderlands 2 on the Steam Gifts site here: One lucky winner will be selected at random to win on Steam Gifts site.

  2. We are also going to be giving away a second copy of Borderlands 2 to the Cheerful Ghost user that creates the coolest Borderlands 2 Haiku. The winner will be determined by which Haiku gets the most “+1” comments from other users. To post your Haiku for consideration, add Borderlands 2 to your game list and post your Haiku with Borderlands 2 as the game category for your post.

    1. Feel free to share your Haiku post over Twitter, Facebook and Google+ to allow your friends and family the ability to vote for you. Due to practical considerations, only “+1” comment votes count that are posted directly to the Cheerful Ghost site.

    2. Each person may only vote once. If you vote multiple times, we will disregard each vote over the first one we count.

    3. Each Cheerful Ghost user can only submit one Haiku to be considered.

Please format your Haiku appropriately, for more information on that see the always amazing Wikipedia:

Deadline for Haiku Contest entries and votes are September 15th @ 4PM EST!

If you have any questions on the contest, feel free to ask in the comments below.

This is a Haiku
It's about Borderlands 2
I hope I win it

Thanks for the submission Rudyard.

If you want this one to be considered for the contest, it will need to exist in its own Borderlands 2 post so people can vote on it.

It would be too hard to parse out whom votes for what in a comment thread with different Haikus.

Thanks again!

Hi Sebastian.

Thanks for the comment. If you want any of those to be in the contest, they should be a proper Borderlands 2 post so people can comment on them.

Will you be checking the Haikus authenticity at the end of the contest to see if they follow the 5-7-5 pattern?

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 09/05/2012 at 11:41am

Yes, we will.

Oh. I'm glad to hear that. I made sure to proof-read mine several times.

Actually I'll confer with @panickedthumb about that. Let you know.

Hi, So do we get the winner based on the votes?

If yes, cant people just make fake accounts to +1 etc?

Thank =)

They could but it doesn't seem like that's the majority of people voting.

The next contest will be different :D

jdodson   Admin   Post Author wrote on 09/14/2012 at 11:01pm

And yes, winner is based on votes.

Axel_Mller wrote on 09/14/2012 at 11:05pm
