  5. Hey guys, in an effort to consolidate forums and keep things from being redundant, we have decided to merge "Live Stoner Chat" and "Introductions" into one single forum. The Live Stoner Chat thread still exists and will be stickied at the top but that will be the new home for it and we're hoping that newcomers to the site will have to take that one less step to jump into our most popular thread on the site! Thanks for understanding and see you in the chat!

    Didn't see a thread for contest ideas in a quicky search, so figured I'd start one up just for grins. My thinking is a thread where anyone that comes up with an idea for a contest can toss it out there. If enough folks want to do it, can run with it as an unofficial thing, or if the right admin(s) get into it who knows...you might come up with the idea behind the next big AFN contest.

    I'll go ahead and kick it off with one that recently came to mind for me...

    Thrift Shop Grow Off

    Set a grow media capacity limit, say around 3 gallons of media. Set a budget limit, say 10 bucks or so. Folks have to hit the local thrift shops and find some container that will hold the max or less amount of media for the set budget that they will grow their plant in. Holes can be drilled/cut in the bottom or sides for drainage, but no other modifications allowed.

    Have two polls at the end...one for best, most imaginative container and one for best plant. :greenthumb:

    decorate your grow room contest.

    Pick a theme, Sci Fi, Christmas, world flags, super hero, or whatever.

    each grower may use whatever items they have on hand at home to decorate plants and grow room.
    each grower will have two days to decorate the grow area and post pictures for voting.

    Ready to hear the crazy? ok Here goes. 20170717_235047.jpg
    There once were simpler times. These tough times gave the people determination, and hopefully some morals. nodding_clint_eastwood.gif
    I propose a friendly Diner grow along.
    What's a diner grow? 20170717_234310.jpg A good cup of coffee, or a nice slice of pie with whipped cream or maybe a little ice cream.
    A person puts what they want inside either an old coffee pot that holds at least 10 cups, or a 1.5 qt ice cream container, or a 16 oz whipped cream container, or all of them. The goal is ten weeks. This is enough for a photoperiod cutting or an Autoflower.
    1 individual per container.
    There would have to be some preliminary veg time for the cuttings maybe a fortnight max.
    I am not sure how to make it more inclusive. Could split them up into separate grows. The hot pot 'o' Auto grow, The staying cool despite climate change grow, or the P squared W grow(pretty please with whipped cream on top).
    Shooting for the stars some days, but worth a try.
    Anyone care for a cup of joe and a slice of pie?

    Great ideas in here guys, let's keep them coming! Heck, maybe we can even put some of these to a member vote and host member-voted contests once per month or 2 months, something to that effect. And if your contest idea wins, we'll even let you (if you want, of course) help run the contest along with an AFN staff member! Our seed vendors have been very generous in seed prize packages that we have a ton left to dole out, but we need the contests to make it happen!

    Put on your thinking caps and let's see who can come up with some fun stuff!

    I'd like to amend this a little. I do like pot size idea, I think that should also include pot type e.g(nursery pot,fabric pot) also have coco vs hydro comps, coco vs soil. I do not agree about limit at only 10$ as I buy by the Qt. each Qt is atleast 10$. Next the mod part is nice, no adding drippers, air domes or pot mods. Last I'd like go one step further for power levels, 250w grows, 400w grows, 600w grows etc... since someone with 1,000w up against someone with only 250w isn't really a comp. also maybe specific Nutrient Grow comps might work. AN vs GH etc..
