Good grief. It's already February. Is it just us, or is this year flying by? Either way, we're happy to be here, and we've got some fun stuff to tell you guys about! Taking a quick look, the title pretty much gives it away, but that's not it, so keep reading!
The Slowking Competition
We mentioned in our last update that we are going to keep a close eye on the "Most Popular Co-Host" statistic and would be having punishments for the least downloaded co-host. Well, we've decided to name that host the Slowking, in honor of no one's favorite Pokemon. To decide the Slowking, we are ranking co-hosts 1-7 for total number of downloads in 2017 and a point-based system of content sharing on social media. Once we have the ranks, we are taking an average and that decides who is the top host, but more importantly, the bottom host. We are still planning to do some type of punishment for the bottom host, and we will be sure to share it with you all once we have the numbers finished and know exactly who the unlucky Slowking is. We might even open a poll and leave it up to you fine folks to find out exactly what he has to do. Either way, the first Slowking of the year will be announced at the beginning of April, so we'll see.
Topic Thunder Polls
Speaking of polls, in case you haven't noticed, we have started posting polls on Facebook and Twitter for you to decide the topics in Topic Thunder every week! We post the poll every Monday at Noon Central, and you have until Noon on Tuesday to cast your vote for the next week's topic. Right now, the hosts are coming up with the 3 options, but we're taking your input too! If you have some ideas, and want us to talk about them, drop us a line at betweenthecons.com/contact!
As you all probably know, Logan is coming out in a few short weeks (March 3). In honor of this release, and the final run of Hugh Jackman in the X-Men Cinematic Universe, we are going to be giving away a copy of Old Man Logan by Mark Millar and one of the postcards from the 1974 Frames of Logan limited release event. The contest is going to run from February 13th through February 27th at noon CT. Here are the rules to enter the contest:
- Follow Between the Cons on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram
- Repost the giveaway photo
- Use #BTCgiveaway, #Logan, and #Wolverine
That's it! We'll be posting five different giveaway photos, and you can be entered into the giveaway only once per photo, or, in other words, share all five photos and increase your chances!
That's pretty much everything we have for you for now, so stay tuned to the show for everything coming up, and make sure you check out next month's post for more updates!
