ontdgames is starting from scratch and we're in the market for a gaming fanatic residing in the U.S. who can take over as owner and inspire some of that delicious ONTD fierceness! If you've got that ONTD sparkle gleaming in your eye and you love games then you might just be the community owner LJ is looking for! Here's the details of LJ's ontdgames community owner search:

If you win:
  • You take the reins of ontdgames and its supporting media channels (twitter, YouTube, etc.)
  • Choose a current-generation video game console of your choice, handheld or home system, to call your own.
  • One free video game a month for one year.
  • A brand new community theme style drafted by our design team with your guidance.
You’ll also have access to the LiveJournal editorial team for PR, marketing, social media support and other goodies.

When: Monday, December 12, 2011 until we find the right person.

Where: ontdgames, aka www.ontdgames.com.

How to enter: The easiest way to enter is by participating in the community. Of course, we're looking for a gamer with that ONTD style. More than that though, we're looking for someone who loves to talk about games.

Throughout the search, we'll post challenge questions in the community. Eye catching nominees are answering those questions as well as cultivating active community discussions.

Winner selection: To be determined but we're looking to find an owner within the next month or so. When the time is right, we'll post a nomination entry in the community. Members then nominate community members for the ontdgames owner position. We'll narrow down the list with a few polls before the LJ Editorial team makes the final choice.

Note: We reserve the right of non-selection if a fierce and flawless candidate cannot be found.

Please ask away if you have any questions. Good luck and game on!

lololol if you were American, I think this would be held against you as mod.
Dec. 13th, 2011 08:09 pm (UTC)
not necessarily. canadians can play US video games, and xbox and playstation games now usually aren't region-locked. gaming sites in other countries manage to get pre-release copies just fine.

OT, but your Takamina icon is FLAWLESS

This is almost as exciting as finally getting a release date on Diablo 3.
Dec. 16th, 2011 10:32 pm (UTC)
omfg the Beta is awesome.
Dec. 13th, 2011 07:55 pm (UTC)

I think they should also include a flashback section, because I know quite a few people, myself included, who game on older systems as well. The Nintendo 64 is still quite popular, as Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time was and still is quite popular. Nothing like Link and Navi navigating Hyrule what with the Gorons, etc!
Dec. 13th, 2011 08:23 pm (UTC)
Awesome idea! I'm in!
Dec. 13th, 2011 08:43 pm (UTC)
Dec. 13th, 2011 08:52 pm (UTC)
well, I'm totally in.
Dec. 13th, 2011 09:26 pm (UTC)
I moderate and help run gaming sites all day, so I could totally do this. Sounds awesome.
Dec. 13th, 2011 10:31 pm (UTC)
Heck yeah, this is perfect timing! I could do this! I have a LOT of free time coming up that could use some filling.
Dec. 13th, 2011 11:59 pm (UTC)
I'm in.
Dec. 14th, 2011 12:32 am (UTC)
Also, I'm disabled and unable to work normal jobs, so this would be AWESOME. I literally sit in front of my TV, Computer, or play my Wii/DS/Online all day. Pick me! *jumps up and down*
Dec. 14th, 2011 12:59 am (UTC)
really? so am i....
Dec. 14th, 2011 10:09 pm (UTC)
I was totally up for doing this until I saw it was US only. I don't even want any of the prizes, being a mod on such an epic gaming site would do me just fine!
Dec. 15th, 2011 02:48 am (UTC)
Sounds like a great opportunity; count me in!
Dec. 15th, 2011 05:12 am (UTC)
Omg I'm so in tbh
Dec. 15th, 2011 06:05 am (UTC)
I will definitely be giving this a try.
Dec. 15th, 2011 08:21 pm (UTC)
All right, all right. I'm giving in and I'm giving it a go. I've been trolling ONTD enough and been to too many conventions to not do anything with this.
Dec. 16th, 2011 10:32 pm (UTC)
I'd like to enter. My day job is managing a video game store, and I'm very much an insider.
Dec. 17th, 2011 04:12 am (UTC)
residing in the U.S.

Whelp, I'm out.
Dec. 18th, 2011 03:08 am (UTC)
Is this community console focused / are the users primarily interested in console games?
Dec. 21st, 2011 08:00 pm (UTC)
ooh, owning a game company sounds incredible! but would whoever wins just be in charge of PR or could they do some creative input to? i've had tons of ideas for games, just none of the resources to do anything with those ideas.
Dec. 22nd, 2011 12:44 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure fame, power, or goodies are a good reason to really lead a community. It should be about the love of the subject and the accepted responsibility to moderate the people who spill in to hopefully talk about the same topic.

Jan. 5th, 2012 04:16 am (UTC)
Yep Good job :)
Jan. 8th, 2012 09:00 am (UTC)
