Share Your New Year's Resolution.. and Win!

'Tis the season... but now that the holidays are almost over, it's time for us to look to the new year.  And... as is tradition... it's time to set out your resolutions.  But hey, it never really works out unless we've got support to help us stay on track - or are really, really dedicated to the cause.

Well, okay... the threat of ultimate humiliation is also another key factor in people succeeding with their resolutions.

But we won't giggle.  I promise!  Oh.  Wait.  That wouldn't be any fun, now would it?

Okay, okay... enough kidding around.


We here at Allakhazam would love to hear your New Year's Resolution!  But... we don't want just any... give us your MMO-related ones.  And if you have the best one, you can win a one month Premium account!  That's right... get one month free of ads... one month of account bonuses... yay!

So what are the requirements and rules? Easy!

  1. Only MMO-related resolutions will be accepted. While we're sure you're excited about resisting the urge to tease your Aunt Flutie about her cheek mole... we really need to stick with the theme here!
  2. Please keep your submission clean enough to publish. Yes, we know that you probably resolve to uhm... well... /blush... enjoy bedroom happiness as much as possible, or violate as many pixelated corpses as you possibly can, keep it PG, people!
  3. All entries must be in by 5:00pm PST on Monday, December 31, 2007. Any entries submitted late will be disqualified.

You can submit screenshots if you like, but be sure to include:

  • Your game (WoW, LotrO, EQ, etc.)
  • Your character's name (if you want your 15 minutes of fame)
  • Your New Year's Resolution.

All entries will be posted on January 1, 2008, and winners will be announced by 5:00pm PST on New Year's Day. Winners are selected by Allakhazam staff, with a maximum of three winners depending on amount of entries.

In order to submit your entry, send a mail to AutumnKiss... in other words... click here. In your subject line state "New Year's Resolution Contest Entry" and include the above information. Incomplete entries will not be considered. Allakazham staff are not eligible to enter.

So hey... let's hear about how you plan on improving this year! Will you eat more gnomes? Toss more dwarves? Or vow to look at the world through the eyes of your friendly neighborhood carebears? Whatever it is... we promise to... uhm... enjoy hearing about it!

To play more MMO's that are web based and non AAA
To be more up to date on the indie side of the MMO development
To read more technical MMO development books
To FINALLY find an MMO home. (Damn you warhammer online, you had better be worth the wait!!!!)

A happy, safe, and MMO filled year to everyone!!!

The end of January marks my 1 year anniversary of having joined EQ. Both of my younger brothers play as well so we sometimes get in some good family quality time LOL

As for my EQ resolutions, I am planning to do alot more exploring of the zones I've never been to and get to see alot more of EQ. I also can't wait to participate in the Fabled stuff when that happens again (I missed it last time) and I want to bring all of my toons up to the top of their skill levels. I also love doing quests so I'm planning to do alot more of them.

I love the game and I get to spend time doing something fun with 2 of brothers. Thanks EQ.

Jumping on a bandwagon here for a second to rag on this here Outlook hater, lol.

I also find it quite funny that said person is whining about fish bots and how SE has done nothing about them, as he/she should be able to do it since supposedly everyone else can...

Truth is, SE has been extremely awesome about zapping botters and RMT (same thing =P) for a WHILE now. Just because it isn't done with the speed and satisfaction of random members of the XI community doesn't mean they're doing nothing. Stop acting like brats, they could do abslolutely nothing if they chose to. Instead they act on RMT now regularly.

In closing.... /end rant! =P

Outlook Express? {No, thanks} I'll just put it here ;P

Game: FFXI
Char; Rooljr
Resolution: To start using fishing bot programs. I have been legit all these years but in the last year, fishing bots are outta control! I report them to the Task Force each and every day and nothing is done. So, this year I'm goin' for it. Why not, If they can get away with it, why can't I.

Overlooking the rest of your... submission, that link doesn't open Outlook Express so much as it opens your default E-mail client specified within the OS. Mine opens my Yahoo webmail.

Funny how he tried to act all high and mighty, to be cool and "anti-MS". But didn't even realize it was him who was making it use outlook :)

So judging by that and his resolution, he's one of those bandwagon haters, hate what ever is the popular thing to hate these days.
Can't sleep, clown will eat me.
