to win GAD.

I've really tried these last few weeks, with a load of decent topics. Unfortunately, I haven't won even a pennywhistle. That's why I'm asking you, help me win GAD, help me win Metroid Prime. I fear I' m reverting back to my spamming phase. What do I do? What topics do I write about. HELP...

Start thinking for yourself, and don't let others do it for you, then you might win.
And keep trying, if you moan all the time no-one'll want to give you anything.

Yea, well just do what the other guys have said. Think of something you are really interested in, like a sport or something. For example, I started writing a post about F1 and how I thought it was becoming even too boring for me to watch.

I wasnt trying for a GAD, but once I actually started to write, I found out I had a fair old bit to say on the matter. Also, dont pre-script your posts if they are about something you feel strongly about, just start typing, and you should end up with a good post with your true feelings on the subject.

One other thing that could help. Dont post anything on the same day as Meka Dragon.

Well... I'd find it more comforting to be a regular anyway, because, though it's possible, you don't find many GAD winning Newbies...

You dont only win when your a regular, i won my first one as a newbie, but just make your topics the best, to you your topics are good, but what about to other people, they may be boring, not funny etc, just keep trying, you will get lucky one day

Well, that's more than none, like me. But hey, I'm sure I'll get one when I'm a regular right?

Yeah. I know how you feel. Sometimes... You just need a GAD. Well, I can't really give you any advice, I've never won one so just follow the other guys instructions. Cool. Maybe I'll win one, you never know...

Read through lots of the GAD 1 winning posts to get the sort of feel for what sort of posts win.
Some of them are spoofs, some of them are interesting topics and some are serious stories. Try to come up with something fairly original, or write something that interests you or you feel strongly about.
Spoofs are often well regarded.
