Subject: [contests] Results of the first Green ARC contest
Security: Public
Tags:contests, green, polls
The first Green ARC contest voting poll is now officially closed. The winner is klingonguy, with 14 votes out of a total of 84 votes cast. The reason he should get a Green ARC?

"Hmmm, this has never worked before, but there's always a first time... Because I'll review it in Klingon!!!"

Congratulations to klingonguy!

Also, if you're still jonesing to win a Green ARC, go enter the current caption contest [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] before I close entries and make it into a poll.

What makes this tricky is that the Klingon word for "green" is the same as the word for "blue" and "yellow" (and also "gamble").

On the other hand, if there's a sequel and he names it Blue or Yellow, then I've can recycle the same review.

So the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis will color your review?

Huh. I was going to say that this felt so much better than winning the Campbell.

Yes, but will he translate it into Klingon?
