Yep, someone has won the code! Thanks for checking in on it!

The Smashing Return of Free Stuff Friday.

Hey gang.

I’ve happened to run into three extra codes for SUPER SMASH BROS. FOR NINTENDO 3DS: SPECIAL DEMO, alongside a code for the full game of MIGHTY GUNVOLT.

Both are for the American Nintendo 3DS.

We’re going to play a game, so you can play the games.

  • By reblogging this post, you will gain one entry into the contest.
  • By retweeting the tweet advertising this contest, you will gain one entry into the contest.
  • You must follow me on the respective platform (Tumblr or Twitter) for this chance to win.
  • You can do both actions and double your chances of winning.
  • Anyone who has a redemption code for the Steam beta for MIGHTY NO. 9 automatically wins one of the copies. (Seriously, just message me the code and, once it’s checked to work, I’ll message you the game’s code.)

Tonight, we will have one winner of the game of their choice from these options (tonight may extend until 3AM EST to allow PST to enter until midnight, but not guaranteed.)

After that…

The remaining three codes will be given out in some mixture of Twitter and Tumblr. They will be first come, first served, and will have a letter or number missing with a clue. You are highly-encouraged to also be following me for this part of the contest, as to get them first. These codes may not go out tonight, but they will go out this weekend.

So, go! Enter the contest!

I’m pretty sure this is a bot (apologies if not), but I do not use frankly.me. You can ask me any question on here, though.

Always reblog the work of people you have the pleasure of working with, and especially when it’s of a project you’re working on together.

This is so incredibly…

UGH.This, specifically, is what you should be aware of:

I also release the Producers from any financial income, remuneration, profit or compensation for my work. I authorize the Producers to use my artwork as part of the book series, Stones of Saldea without any expectation of monetary profit. I willingly release any future financial claims to the income and/or profits of my fan art. In receipt, I am receiving credit on all social media sites using my name and or Instagram tag name on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and on all Stones of Saldea social media sites and websites.  I accept this award in lieu of any financial income, remuneration, profit or compensation for my work.

By signing off on the artist’s release, you are GIVING THEM THE RIGHT TO USE WHATEVER YOU SUBMIT WITHOUT EVER PAYING YOU.

And they can profit off of it.

Then, there’s this:

If your artwork is chosen, we will contact you to get your permission (and your parents’) to use your artwork. Think about this!

So, basically, they’re EXPECTING to get a lot of participation from people under 18.

snarksquash:

THIS is just from their instagram. :|

At least one of these artists is 12.

Usernames censored because, well, they ARE children.  Please do not harass them.  :\

I feel especially bad because everyone who is submitting to this “contest” has some talent and passion for art, and they’re getting a pretty bad deal here.

I mean, really… Submit your art for publication!  AND NEVER GET PAID FOR IT EVEN THOUGH WE MIGHT TURN A PROFIT OFF IT.

Besides, if it’s a contest, shouldn’t there be some sort of prize other than exposure in printed media?

ALSO, my GOD, do they even have parental permission to publish the full names of these kids?!

  • Account Activity
  • AZURE STRIKER GUNVOLT -> View Receipt
  • Copy (or take a picture) of the code it gives you for MIGHTY GUNVOLT

I think the fact that the Pink Ranger seems to be THE de-facto female member of the team across nearly every incarnation of the Power Rangers/Super Sentai franchise kind of makes it a big deal to a lot of people here in the States.

Only in America mostly. Pink has been male in Japan before. Or was it the stunt guy pink?

All but one (Kazumi Hoshikawa (Kazuko Miyata), FivePink in Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman) has been female in Japan. See http://powerrangers.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Sentai_Pink

Um… FivePink’s male?

In Japan, the only times a regular male team member has even worn pink is for a split-second GokaiChange in GOKAIGER, and when male Toqgers transfers from their color to pink.
