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!

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.

I'd like to enter. My day job is managing a video game store, and I'm very much an insider.

Is this community console focused / are the users primarily interested in console games?

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.

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.
